The restaurant, located at 1 Lagoon Rd Portsmouth, is housed in an original Quonset Hut built in 1942 as part of the US Navy’s PT-Boat Training Center (attended by JFK) at Melville. The space was converted into a restaurant over 30 years ago and began operation as The Gulf Stream Bar and Grille in 2016.
