About The Purple Urchin
The Purple Urchin Restaurant - The Place to Be in Hampton Beach!
The Purple Urchin Restaurant has maintained the highest standards in food and fun for 25 years. A long time locals favorite! The Purple Urchin Restaurant offers the best food at the best prices!
Opened in 1995 by Emile and Maureen Dumont, with the image to serve the beach with high quality food while under a family-friendly atmosphere. Emile was a well known baker and entrepreneur in Lowell MA, and decided to open a restaurant on Hampton Beach.
The tradition of serving high quality food has been kept alive through his oldest daughter Maura Fleming. She along with her husband Jake Fleming, are the current owners of this well-known restaurant. Since then, Maura & Jake have doubled the dining opportunity with our Patio deck. Offering phenomenal views of the ocean along with a front row seat to the nightly entertainment offered across the street at the Seashell Stage. Did we mention we have the best view of the fireworks on Wednesday nights? The Patio itself offers live entertainment during lunch time. for more information on live performances, check out our Entertainment schedule.

"One of my favorites in Hampton. The location is great enjoy a cold beverage while watching the free concerts across the street is very pleasant. Another plus is their beer battered fish and chips."

"We went to the purple urchin for dinner on a Monday night and it was fantastic! If not for the fantastic food, you should stop in for the amazing customer service - our waitress was the best we've ever had."
