My wife and I had driven by the Bantam Grill many times and were impressed with the always-full parking lot. So late one Tuesday morning we decided to stop in and try out the lunch service. The restaurant is nicely designed with about 50 tables of various sizes and a full bar. The decor is bright and joyful - mostly... More

After a day long hike up Monadnock my family came upon Bantam Grill ravenous with hunger. The atmosphere was casual, seating a little crowded, with a little energy about it, clean, and welcoming. We were seated quickly. Overall service was a little slow, but worth the wait. We ordered the "Hickory Smoked Duck Confit Drummettes", which was a interesting and... More

The food was delicious, fresh, unique (in a very good way) and well plated. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the service was just fine. Nice job Bantam, will come again.

My elderly mother and I stopped here for late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Weren't more than eight customers when we arrived. Put in our drink orders which arrived promptly, then ordered food. And waited. And waited. Meanwhile, two couples were seated near us got all kinds of attention from the manager. After 20 minutes, no food, not able to... More

Great for lunch or dinner. Nice, casual atmosphere. Express lunches are a good value. Some of my favorites are the shrimp and grits, the brussel sprouts, the burger, the bantam chicken.

Excellent food! We love this restaurant because of their local and healthy ingredients, creative menu, and friendly staff. Two minor criticisms are that they are sometimes short staffed which means a little bit of a wait, and I wish there were more gluten free dessert options (chocolate!).

My wife and I eat at Bantam at least once per week. The food is fantastic, the wine selection is large and unique and they serve local brews. There's a large bar and bar area for the size of the restaurant and booths if you prefer your privacy. Our personal favorite menu item is the salmon (under $20). We eat... More

Full disclosure here -- I am a local, more or less. I like to review restaurants after a few visits if possible. We started eating here last year and have been back about half a dozen times. Cliche'd as it may sound - it keeps getting better. First time it seemed so-so, but now we love it. Had chance to... More

Don't let the strip mall location fool you. Bantam Grill celebrates fresh food and great flavor better than many restaurants in much more impressive surroundings. The first thing you encounter upon entering is a chalkboard listing the farms, breweries and other mostly local sources for the evening's fare. The menu is an eclectic mix of some old standards (you can... More

We wanted to try something new for lunch on a recent trip to Peterborough. I suggested The Bantam Grill. The venue is simple, well-furnished, and features a small but excellent express lunch menu with several interesting choices. Both of us chose the Lamb Strangozzi, a ragout of lamb and vegetables in a red sauce over homemade linguine. At my request,... More
