3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went for lunch with my work friends there was probably 15 of us total. We asked if we could do separate checks and the waitress answered with a very curt NO because it was to many people. Then we asked if just two of us could have separate checks and she still said no, what ever she was not very... More

I've been going here since I was a kid. Consistently friendly service with excellent food. Chicken fingers are amazing, Greek salad and pita also great as well as their "Backroom" chicken. Favorite restaurant.

Taken here by a friend, with high expectations, I was not disappointed. Of course he insists that I start with a mudslide, which I would heartily recommend. I ordered the fried chicken tenders and a baked potato which comes with a greek salad. All were fantastic and huge portions. Both of us could only finish half of the chicken tenders,... More

Puritan has a very broad menu from sandwiches and pizza to wonderful dinners. Their well known for their Chicken Tenders which are the best you'll ever have, however the Salmon Dinner, Lobster Pie, Prime Rib are all excellent. We make it a point to visit them at least a couple times a month!

They're known for their specialty mudslides, and for good reason. We tried 3 different kinds and they were all great (almond joy was a favorite.) Chicken fingers are juicy and slightly sweet, the portion is huge. We also tried a special, a crusted haddock with balsamic glaze and fingerling potatoes. It was excellent but the piece of fish was thin.... More

Known for their frozen mudslide choices, chicken tenders, and attached store/ice cream take out with homemade ice cream. Personal favorite: Greek salad.

Casual atmosphere and great service. My friend had the fried chicken tenders and I had the broiled tenders in special sauce. Wonderful as always and even made room for ice cream for dessert. Best ice cream ever!

You simply can't go to the Puritan without having a mudslide! I had he snicker slide! So good! With caramel drizzled on the glass! So delish!!

We went to this restaurant with friends because it's an institution in Manchester where all the people in the know go. Well, if they go for the food, they must be disappointed. My wife got the chicken fingers which is what Puritan is famous for, but they were heavily breaded and dry. My burger was one of the worst I've... More
