Pleasant Surprise

Met family who live in New Hampshire here for a lovely luncheon. Service was excellent (thank you Michelle) and although our meals took a bit long to arrive, we never felt forgotten. The atmosphere is nice with many booths and tables for larger parties. Even though we didn't sit down until about 2... read more

The Puritan Back Room has been a Manchester, NH standard for longer than I have been around and we head there when we are hungry but don't really know what we want to eat. Their menu is heavier than most school books and has a great array of food from appetizers to desserts (their ice cream has been a Manchester... More

The food is OK. Nothing exciting or novel. The prices are good, but when going out for dinner I prefer to experience a more interesting cuisine. It's like eating at a slightly upscale dairy bar.

The Back Room will never let you down in selection, quality, quantity or price. The servers have been there for a long time, so they know the menu quite well.

Had dinner on Valentine day with my wife. Everyone was so pleasant and the food plentiful and delicious. Our waitress very pleasant and accommodating to all of our requests. Would recommend to others. If going on the weekend, plan on an hour wait unless you arrive by 4:30.

The place has been around forever and you can tell when you walk in...but just move past that and order one of their amazing mudslides and chicken fingers. Both of which will be the best you've ever had (or at the very least, top 3).

Best chicken tenders in the civilized world. Worth the wait for a table. Prime Rib is also a huge serving.

You can never go wrong with this restaurant. There is always a wait nut if you get there around 4pm you can get right in. A great family restaurant and delicious chicken tenders.

Always a friendly atmosphere and great service. We often times will order out because the wait inside can be quite lengthy.
