Description: Airport Diner in Manchester, N.H. is a traditional 50's style diner conveniently located near the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. Complete with be-boppin' music, a case full of home-made pies, and a tuna melt The Boston Globe called "a local tuna melt worth traveling for," Airport Diner is a family-friendly restaurant that offers something for everyone. Breakfast served all day long and comfort food favorites just like mom used to make!

“Hot as blazes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Food was decent, but establishment needs to spend a few dollars on upgrading their air conditioning. It had to be 80+ degrees in the diner and it was only 75 degrees outside. The wait staff looked drained and were all sweating. They kept the connecting door into the Holiday Inn Airport open in hopes of sucking out some of the hotel air conditioning. Very sad condition in the diner - needs a good scrubbing and more than one upgrade.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Liked the fact that it was attached to our hotel. Very nostalgic and fun atmosphere. The waitresses were very busy but still were friendly and helpful. Its amazing how such a small diner can offer such a big variety of choices and prepare them so well. Only drawback is that there always seemed to be a long line waiting...guess that just means everyone knows how good it is. Have a meal here..its well worth it

“Diner food, lots of choices, reasonable prices, FUN!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Convenient from the highway and open 24/7 this is a great family option. I travel back/forth to New Hampshire from Boston regularly and we have stopped here a few times now for dinner. My teens like the choices, the service is usually good, and prices are reasonable. This is part of the Common Man group of restaurants and portions are generous and you can get breakfast any time of the night/day.
If you are near the Manchester airport or traveling from Boston to NH or VT and want an option other than fast food, I highly recommend it.

It was very cool to go to an old fashion dinner and they were open 24 hours which made it convenient for us since were up really late.

“What a GREAT diner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed at the Airport Holiday Inn recently and had dinner at the Airport Diner because it's attached to the Holiday Inn.

But what a great diner! It's open 24 hours and has a great selection of food. Portions are large, quality is good, and the everyone who works here is friendly, smiling, and has a GREAT attitude!

I would gladly dine here again!
