Located just two blocks down from Market Square in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Jay's has become an overnight institution among locals who appreciate exceptional seafood. The quality of fare is unsurpassed, with fish arriving daily from local fisherman as well as some exotic catches from locations such as New Zealand and Ecuador. Four to six varieties appear on the ever-changing "Catch of the Day" menu, complimented by your choice of a gourmet sauce or marinade. The standard menu offers a more traditional flavor, including Maine Crab Cake, Haddock Piccata and the popular Linguine in White Clam Sauce. The atmosphere is casually hip, with no pretense. Reservations encouraged.

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives
The first time I went to Red Arrow Diner was on impulse. Back in 2008, I watched an episode of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on Food Network and became intrigued by their Dinah Fingers, aka homemade Twinkies. Back then I was still living in Boston, so my boyfriend and I decided at 11:00pm one night that we had to try these homemade Twinkies. With empty bellies, we made the hour drive on impulse to Manchester.

Great place for a quick and consistently good food, have been going there for years. LOVE the chicken fajita sub... Three sizes of subs, but they do wraps if you're trying to cut down on the carbs like myself. They do have some more healthy choices including a bunch of different salad options. There's always a reasonable lunch special, and they actually bother to rotate it.

This is the first time I have been back since the renovation, and I have to say that the atmosphere is much better. There is so much less clutter, and seems much more clean, and spacious. Were were seated right away, and our server was very friendly.

The Legendary Gillieys I heard so much about. Everyone loved Gilley who ran the giant covered food cart. Most people did not know that Gilley the friendly face and personality did not own it. Well the legendary food is still there great with hot dogs, homemade Boston baked beans. But the legendary service was gone that day we came in which is probably why there was only one other customer. The man at the counter that day will set a new record for being able to alienate every customer with the fewest words spoken. The Kids and adults that visited that are all still talking about the sour monotone man that treated everyone like a nuisance. No need to be offended as he treats everyone the same. It's actually comical. Again the dogs and beans are great.
