Longboards Hawaiian Bar and Grill Circa 2008 -2011

From about 2008-2011, this was the original website when the restaurant, now known as Longboards Lounge was called Longboards Hawaiian Bar and Grill. Now the old site didn't look exactly like this site, just like the new website for Longboards Hawaiian Bar and Grill has a totally different design from the original.
Content is from the site's archived pages.

If you had eaten at the "old" Longboards Hawaiian Bar and Grill and are concerned that things might have drastically changed, you don't have to worry. The last time I was in town I ate at the Longboards Portsmouth location which is still at the old location: 440 High Street / Portsmouth,VA 23704. I was in town checking up on my elderly grandparents. My grandmother needed to get her reading glasses lenses replaced. Apparently the lenses were badly scratch and needed to be replaced. Instead of having go downtown to a glass frame store I showed their caretaker how my mother could order replacement lenses for eyeglasses through the mail. I showed them the Eyeglasses.com website where I get my lenses replaced. All they had to do was mail in the glasses. The online site offers all kinds of replacement lenses from single vision, progressive, bifocal, to trifocal made from plastic and polycarbonate, to high index, Trivex and even glass. When I told my grandfather he could get his sunglass lenses replaced with custom tint, Transitions technology, polarized, and mirror coated, he decided he would send them in with my grandmother's glasses. The last time I spoke with them, they were both wearing their glasses with the replacement lenses. "Seeing better than ever." I was assured. So as I was saying, Longboards Lounge is as good as its former iteration, Longboards Hawaiian Bar and Grill, was.


Recently I discovered that the domain for LongboardsSeafoodCompany.com was available so I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its content from archived pages and to point visitors to Longboards' new site: www.longboardslounge.com/. I definitely didn't want someone else purchasing the domain and re-purposing the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website.

Since this site will not be exactly as you remember it, please be indulgent and use this visit as a reminder why you want to go Longboards Lounge for one of their tropical drinks, or a glass of wine or beer from their extensive collection to go along with a burger or something more exotic.


Longboards is the newest concept by veteran restaurateurs Vince Ranhorn and Todd Leutner located in beautiful Olde Towne Portsmouth. Longboards is a Hawaiian bar and grill featuring island cuisine with tropical flair! Executive Chef Todd lived in Hawaii and had long wanted to bring a restaurant to Hampton Roads with the cool surfer vibe of the islands. They have a great bar with TVs and will feature live entertainment all while being surrounded by plenty of surfing décor and an outdoor patio for additional seating.



The dining scene is simple-good food at a very reasonable price!! We took the bar fare thing and spun a little flare to give us an advantage over the "same ole same ole". The menu is avalable 7 days a week!!! For more info...please call 757.399.4010



This is the place that makes Longboards so special. Locals and guests from all over Hapmton Roads take in the scene as Olde Towne Portsmouth livens up into the early hours. The prices are cheap, the beer is cold, and the eye candy is set in place.

Tropical drinks, martinins, and a wide assortment of beers and wines make this a must while in Olde Towne Portsmouth!!!!

Live acoustic acts and live music Wednesday thru Saturday!!!



What our customers are saying...

"Excellent wait staff, oh and very attractive. Thanks."


"Large portion sizes and very reasonable prices are a big draw. Cool decor of surf gear. Service was very slow as far as getting our food, but we were chilling out on the patio and not in a huge rush.


" I love the Kahlua pork on the appetizer menu; a full meal really---flavorful meat served on a bed of rice with macaroni salad and crisp, fresh dinner salad---what a bargain at $5.95! I could sit on the patio drinking Longboard draft all evening, watching the foot traffic go by for hours. The serving staff is young, friendly and efficient. Love this place! "


"I as well as the friends I brought here loved this restaurant. Great food, great prices and very friendly staff...one of my favorites in Portsmouth!"


"This was our first visit to Longboards and we had a great time. The setting is casual and comfortable, and the beer selection is great. The food was much better than we expected for the informal atmosphere and quite reasonable. Definitely on our A list."


"Another great experience at Longboards.:) "


"I Love the place."


"Fantastic Service, Food, and really nice people.. We dropped in on Easter Sunday and now Longboards Buffet has replaced our spot for Sunday Brunch Each Week !!"


"We had a nice experience. The menu was simple. The food was good and reasonable for the price!"


"The food was fresh and tasty, and the price very reasonable, we weren't expecting this because this establishment is rather small with a large bar area. We are going back again for sure."
