Portsmouth Gas Light Co. Grill

You can sit inside or outside at this bit-of-everything spot on Market Street, but if the most important member of your Portsmouth vacation is your Pomeranian with separation anxiety, plan on grabbing a table on the dog-friendly patio. The menu here covers every section of the American food pyramid—think big salads, burgers, wings, and a surprisingly solid lobster roll for a spot that’s not actually on the water. 

However, most people come here for the pizzas, which you can only order (and eat) inside. The Gas Light with pepperoni, Italian sausage, and ricotta is as fantastic as it is simple, but if you’re the type who’s more determined to make history rather than read about, you can pick from tons of bases and toppings on the menu to build your own.
