This is the best little greasy spoon diner I've been to in years! When you walk in its always going to have a line, but it moves fast. The place is extremely small, but you feel like you step back in time when you walk in. We sat at the bar top and it was as much fun watching the... More

This diner is our absolute favorite in the Manchester area. Originally we came two years ago after seeing the diner on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, but the quality of the food has kept us coming back. The diner is really small with only 6 booths and one long counter. To minimize a wait, come a little late so the dinner... More

Quirky, friendly, historic, delicious are all words that describe this restaurant. We first came to the restaurant when our daughter was a student at Southern New Hampshire. Our daughter has finished college and will be moving back to Manchester and our first thought was - Red Arrow! The restaurant is a landmark and a popular place for politicians during the... More

Great! Had the liver and onions best liver ever! Beat my grandmas! The BF had chicken fried steak with sausage gravy melted in my mouth. Then he got the eclair and I had the strawberry rhubarb pie, perfection couldn't decide which was better. Go here, eat here, repeat!

This is a beautiful place to have a meal. They have an excellent menu that takes burgers to new levels and staff are very friendly. Big menu -steaks, fish and very fresh cream pies. The macaroni and cheese was melted processed cheese poured on top of cooked macaroni. Each counter seat has a name plate of someone famous who ate... More

Little tiny diner with good food and service. Getting a table is pretty tough as there are only about 6 tables in the place but we usually sit at the counter - it's more fun there. Great place to get breakfast lunch or dinner. Huge portions. They have delicious pancakes but my favorite breakfast there was the was the Lobster... More

There isn't anything special about this place, but the staff is always incredibly pleasant and I love their homefries. I never had a bad experience eating there and it's one of the few places that makes you feel like you're in a small town rather than downtown Manchester. The parking is easier than a lot of places on Elm Street.

Red Arrow Diner has prominently displayed on their entrance doors a listing of celebrity diners. A picture of a Food Network star is hanging on the wall along with notice of his featuring the diner on his show. But, alas, I thought it nothing special. The blue plate meatloaf special my husband ate was so so. The mashed potatoes he... More

There seem to be some here who had fine dining expectations. This is a diner and the best I've ever eaten in. The coffee was very good, the crab cake twist on eggs Benedict was exceptional (the Hollandaise was out of this world) and the hash browns were perfect. I like to "collect" Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives (Food Network) and... More
