The decor is outdated, and the food is above average cafeteria food. The one outstanding item is the chicken tenders. I often order takeout because the restaurant is in need of a facelift. It is a little better than a cafeteria. The salads are less than par, but the spanakopita is good. Large portions. Traditional New England desserts. Nothing fancy,... More

The Backroom has been around for many years and is one of the best restaurants in Manchester, NH. My wife and I dine there at least once a week, and in over 30 years we can count the bad meals we've had there on 1 finger! They are famous for their fried chicken tenders (guaranteed you'll have to take some... More

If you just plain don't feel like cooking, and don't want any surprises, this might be for you. Lots of local retired people eat here for their meals. Good basic food, with good sized portions. The wait staff does a great job....an appreciation for how well they are treated by the owners. The same family owners for like 50 yrs... More

My husband and I shared an Angus beefburger at the bar, well done was perfect, still moist and extremely tasty. The bulky roll was also perfect, soft yet firm, and their regular fries were some of the best, if not THE best i have ever had. The side of long whole green beans was also the best, sweet, moist and... More

While I am a vegetarian she gets fish all the time. The Vegetarian meals are all with loads of pasts which gets old but she got 3 bad meals in a row. We no longer go there but that is not that reason. The reason is that they ROUND the bills to the nearest dollar. I have NEVER been rounded... More

At one time the Puritan was a great place to go and have a good meal. Now though, it's over priced with average food and poor service.

I was a bit overwhelmed by the extensive menu at this place, but there was a lot of variety that everyone can find something they like. My dining companions said the chicken strips are the house specialty to try. I tried a chicken strip wrap and it was good, but not mindblowing. Atmosphere was nice, the dining room is large... More
