    The food was great! Enjoyed the raw bar. Our entrees were super tasty and appropriately portioned. Dessert and coffee were lovely as well. Howerever, the experience was made by the best server we have had any where in a long time. She was friendly, genuine, and had the perfect balance of checking in on us, and leaving us alone to enjoy our evening and meal.

    Always absolutely delicious! We wouldn't come to Portsmouth and not go to Jumpin' Jays. The atmosphere is nice - you can be dressed up or casual - but the food is SO good!! The mussels are better than any others we've had in the area, the seafood is delicious, and the Haddock Piccata and Seafood Mullugatawny Stew (with coconut milk!) are amazing!!

    As always a great dinner! Everything was perfect. It's nice that there is a variety of options since my husband and I have different tastes. We can always find something we will both like. And everyone is always so nice and the drinks are pretty good too

    We were very satisfied with our meal. We were there on Shuck-a-Buck night; the oysters were deliciously fresh! Excellent spicy, fried calamari! Friendly, helpful staff and fast service.
