Dependable and Relaxed

A reliable, sure bet for a good meal. Always a very complete menu of home style cooking with good choices in fish, steak, sandwiches and of course their renowned chicken tenders. Don't forget there is an ice cream take out window in the front.

We had a family reunion at the Puritan Backroom conference center. The staff was incredibly helpful, from initially scheduling the event eight months in advance to our frequent emails with quick questions (we planned this event from the west coast). to helpful suggestions for decorating. On the day of the event, the food was quite good and affordable. Best chicken... More

Love their ice cream. They have a new flavor Black Raspberry with no sugar added that was perfect for my husband and I had Mint Patty frozen yoghurt. Very generous portions.

I attended a financial seminar and the food was nothing special. It was really nothing and doesn't stand out in my mind at all. If it were something special, I would have returned.

The foods alright and the wait may be long but you go the the Backroom for ice cream and atmosphere. If your from NH you walk in and you will probably run into someone you know. Such a neat thing to experience even. Known for their mudslides for a reason too.

The Backroom has the best chicken fingers and fries you could ever dream of eating. It's seafood is to die for, just make sure you have a huge appetite because the portions are absolutely gigantic.

We visited this restaurant last summer when we were in the New Hampshire area and it was well worth it. It was so good we went back twice (and we were only in New Hampshire for 3 days). Both times the food was over the top fantastic! The quality and selection were great! I can't say enough about this restaurant... More
