Great food, but sometimes way too much.

Their food is very good, very reasonably priced, but a fair amount of times way too much to eat in one sitting (the only reason I give it a 4). I will generalize here and say some people like that as it allows them to have an extra meal or two at home. I am not one of those people.... read more

Always very impressed. Reasonably priced food, great service and an atmosphere that is a cut above. I always get the chicken tenders, not because I particularly like that as an entree, but because they do them so well! Fresh bread with every meal is amazing! I've waited 2 hours to eat at the Puritan before because its worth it!

The "back room" as it's called by locals,is famous for it's Mudslides, chicken fingers and nachos. The interior of the restaurant is a cross between a family style restaurant and a pub. It isn't fancy, but it's comfortable and the servers are always friendly. The menu is pretty extensive with something for just about everyone; just don't expect it to... More

Food is great. Meeting place for politicians. Reasonably priced. Have been to a wedding in their function hall. Beautiful reception, everything was great.

Made it before the rush ! But took over 15 minutes for the server to come to our table. Only took drink orders-dropped them off and ran. 10 more minutes to get food order taken. 20 minutes to get food-never asked if we wanted dessert. 10 more minutes to get check-but we didn't let her leave just gave her payment....

Our waitress was great. The food was good. They have plenty to offer. I hand the bake stuffed haddock while my wife had the sirloin steak. We also had bacon wrapped scallops and stuffed mushrooms. My mother had the same as I had and my father Mac and cheese which he liked. Would go again.

Sunday night, had to have a fish sandwich. Puritan backroom listed it on their online menu. The wait was 20 minutes, but comfortable and they announce names, no hand held stun guns to jolt you back to reality. This is a large, somewhat noisy, family friendly place. My sandwich was excellent, and while french fries aren't really my thing, these... More

The Backroom (the name known by the locals), has always had very good food each time I have gone. Of course, no one, and I mean - NO ONE does chicken tenders better than the Backroom! Want the best Mudslide east of the Rockies, then you have come to the right place too! Enjoy your meal as the server will... More

We met old friends here and we all had different entrees including fish, steak, chicken, sandwiches, etc. They easily accommodated 8 of us and the waitress was very good. I can't imagine anyone not finding something they'd like on the menu.

We went with a group of 8 with 2 children for a total of 10. Cannot make reservations, but you can call ahead and they try to accommodate. We called for a 5:00 dinner time and were seated at 6:15 (Saturday Night) Atmosphere is a typical noisy restaurant that has a very large dining room. Hostess was pleasant and our... More
