Known for their chicken fingers and mudslides, the Puritan Backroom is also a local political hotspot. They also have fantastic strawberry shortcake. It does get quite busy, so plan ahead!

We’ve gone here a few times since moving to NH. I have to say that the service is always great and the food is excellent. Portions are huge but you’ll want to save room for some of their ice cream!!

Everyone talks about the chicken tenders - which we ordered and which were awesome! But the delightful surprise of the evening was the lobster roll. The menu offers a lobster salad roll, but I was in the mood for the Maine lobster roll with just...More

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
