We visited here on a Saturday night and they were VERY busy. Lobster Pie was exceptional. Table service was good, but not exceptional. We have an enjoyable meal. Would return on another trip to Manchester.

Me and my wife came to NH to visit a person I found on Facebook that I haven't seen in over 45 years. We were in Viet Nam together back in 1970-71. The evening we arrived, he and his wife to us out to this establishment called Puritan Backroom. Seated at our table, we were greeted by a wonderful waitress... More

Bartenders were excellent. Food was excellent. My husband doesn't like the tarter sauce tastes oniony but other than that it's very good.

We frequent the Puritan Backroom restaurant every time we are in NH, this visit was just a little different. Instead of eating in the main restaurant we used the big event room/catering hall for a family gathering. The room was set up and ready for our family and guests. The two retractable viewing screens worked well as did the speakers... More

Best chicken tenders around!!!!!one of my favorites for sure. Get there early or you will find yourself waiting in line. if you want to get out with friends it's a great place to grab a drink and chat with your group.

Great food, friendly staff, and very poor customer service by waitress. I would not recommend this establishment if you are in a hurry or wanting attention.

Having never visited the Puritan Backroom, we were a little concerned when we pulled into the jammed parking lot at lunchtime. To our surprise, we were seats in a booth after only a five minute wait. Our server appeared within minutes and took our drink order (we had been advised to try their frozen mudslides which were outstanding). We ordered... More

I arrived shortly after 5 PM and the place was 3/4 full. Upon leaving, about 6/30PM, it was FULL and the waiting area was SRO. Supper was a grilled pork chop, applesauce, baked potato, an superb Greek salad and a dark draft beer. All were excellent! Service, maybe because of the crowd, was lacking. This is a huge beautiful restaurant... More

I've never had a bad or mediocre dinner at The Puritan Backroom. They have revised their menu, but kept the popular choices. The food is great and plentiful; you often see people leaving with doggie bags. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings are most popular, so don't be surprised if there's a wait - but it's well worth it!!! Not only... More

I went to the Backroom, the server was not very friendly. However the food was amazing. I would highly recommend eating here, be sure to get a better serve than I had.

Thank Michelle F
