Nothing fancy. Diner food--plain and simple. Omelets are huge and home fries are very good. Nothing fancy--this place is about the "atmosphere" as much as its history (plaques above booths commemorating the politicians, actors and celebrities that sat in the booth.) If you live in the area--the Red Arrow is as much see. Basic coffee and breakfast items. Nobody ever... More

The Red Arrow is a Manchester icon. Everyone has been there and it's got it's devotees. I love a good greasy breakfast sometimes, and when I'm craving one, the Red Arrow never disappoints. The food is well portioned and tasty. The service is ok. But if you go ;(and you should) do yourself a favor & order the patty melt.... More

Just stay away from the stuffing. They don't have too many bad things on the menu. Usually packed, there is a couple of tables and seating at the counter. The line fir thus place can be long on certain days..but they do takeout orders..which I utilize often. The only mistake I ever saw with take out was getting wheat bread... More

Not your classic diner that you find in Jersey or Philly but it's definitely got kind of feel to it. Nice place that you seek out when you want that small, crowded, busy fun kind of place with really good classic diner food. Prices as to be expected but not unreasonable for being downtown. Check it out, if you don't... More

Chili, chocolate chip pancakes, dina fingers, and fish chowda are amazing and reasonable. I'll continue to be a loyal customer.

We read about this diner in our local paper in Halifax Nova Scotia and decided if in the area to stop which we did Nov.29th/14! Were not disappointed, 34 seats, open since 1922 a piece of Diner history. Had eggs Benedict with corn beef hash and wife had same with crab cakes. Only complaint is you felt obligated to gobble...

...And you think yes, we are tired, we just need god honest home cooked style food. We did, but this wasn't it. First off Really truly nice people - they do this thing - they ask if you are a 'Red Arrow Virgin" if you are they ring a bell and everyone claps. Felt genuine and heartfelt. But then you... More

I was looking for a place to eat after doing an over night install for a local grocery store chain. At 3 AM, it's the only place in town open. Good food, hot off the grill. It is frequented by many famous celebrities and food critics. If you need a taxi, several were parked outside.

We had seen that this diner was #3 on the trip advisor ratings for restaurants in Manchester so we decided that we would go and try it out. We met our friends there and was able to get a booth for four with no wait. The diner stayed full with people coming and going but no line in the middle... More

I am from Nevada, so food from various sources, qualities, and styles is well represented. I was told to go to this restaurant if I ever go to Manchester, and so, went with little expectation other than to have a nice meal. Boy was I blown away by the nice servers, the high quality food, the amazing atmosphere, and it... More
