"The food at Dolphin Striker was good, the service was good, and the atmosphere was fine, although the restaurant was very empty on a Sunday evening. Nearby restaurants were visibly crowded.
I can not describe anything about this restaurant that was deficient...nothing was wrong at all, but nothing was outstanding or impressive. I would not be opposed to eating here again, but for the price range this place is in, it seems like there is better and more interesting nearby. I did like that their food menu was not too extensive, just a few options, all of which I am sure would be well-prepared.

"We went with friends to the Dolphin Striker during Restaurant Week in Portsmouth, NH. Instead of just a limited selection from a restaurant week menu, were able to select our meal from the entire regular menu! It was hard to decide, everything looked great. We weren't disappointed, every part of the meal was outstanding."

"We chose Dolphin Striker because my husband proposed to me there 30 years ago, but... the experience this time was disappointing. The restaurant was mostly empty, yet we 4 were seated in the back room near the toilets. Service was prompt. The food was good, not great, and decently prepared. I would recommend the restaurant with the caveat to expect nothing special either in the way of food or experience."

"The occasion was Portsmouth Restaurant week - get appetizer/salad, entree and dessert for one fixed price. It's a good deal for a relatively expensive restaurant. We return to Dolphin Striker every time for restaurant week. I had the goat cheese walnut salad and my husband had the seafood chowder - both were excellent! I had the haddock oscar, which was also excellent. My husband, who's had the lobster mac & cheese there before, was disappointed - it was very dry, unlike the creaminess in the past. Both of us had the Chocolate Cream Cake, which was outstanding! Our server, Dennis, was excellent - attentive but not a pain."

"We had the beef wellington for dinner- small piece but good and beef was tender- the chocolate cake for dessert was very rich-easy to split- The waitress was wonderful and friendly-
I would recommend it while in Portsmouth.

"We had salmon and haddock -- came with a salad that had no dressing -- maybe they forgot -- we asked for dressing...and the fish portions were very good -- but extremely too small -- maybe 3 -4 ounces each.....at $25 per plate -- I think they could have provided a decent portion. Too bad."

"Made a reservation the same day and put in a special request for a single rose since it was our Anniversary. When we showed up, they had a table set up in the corner at the front window with a single rose and great mood music playing. I couldn't have set it up any better myself. They really made our night special. Great food and a good selection. We will definitely go again for dinner or maybe try lunch."

"We enjoyed dinner out for two here. The good was delish (surf and turf sliders, scallops, hard cider) and the wait staff was wonderful. The noise level was nice and quiet with non-frenetic music, which suited our mood. Only mild complaint was the occasional rushing in a cold air whenever the back door was opened and new customers came in. We happened to be seated in the lower level where the bar was and there was an entrance of the street in the back. We were near the door. Not a real biggie though and in no way ruined our night. Overall, an excellent dinner with yummy food, nice atmosphere, pleasant wait staff, and a table for two with my honey. We'd definitely go back. Food: tasty bar food options and well-repared seafood fare as well. Oh, and the fries that came with the sliders were (surprisingly) possibly the best I've ever had, with a very thin layer of crispy batter on the outside, great flavor and texture."

"We were seated at the window in the front corner Our waiter,Dennis, was exceptional,knowledgeable and attentive. The appetizers were delicious. Our grilled seafood entrees were cooked perfectly. We could hear the band playing which added to this stolen romantic night away from reality . The sumptuous desserts at the end completed the night."

"The "Striker" has a good selection of food and music groups. It is the sort of place where you can go every night to hear a wide range of musical styles. The menu is broad enough to keep one's interest for many repeat visits. We had wine by the glass and selected a series of apps. Upstairs is the formal restaurant which is very nice. Downstairs is the bar which is where we sat to eat, drink and listen. Our friend was one of the musicians and we drove for two hours to see him there, in large part because of the venue."
