I have been eating at the Backroom for over 20 years. The food is great. With a vast menu of steaks pasta chicken and seafood. They are famous for their special chicken tenders and Greek salad. Prime rib is huge! And awesome lobster pie! Try a nightly special. Scallops are always cooked perfectly. Nice family atmosphere. Don't let the line scare you. The wait is never as long as they say and totally worth the wait.

We have eaten at the Puritan Back Room many times, but I have never provided a review. I felt is was necessary to let everyone know how good their prime rib is.
I have now had it 4 times and it has been the same everytime. Tender, cooked as I requested and a monster proportion for the price. When I want a good piece of prime rib, I now know that it is the Puritan. My wife almost always has the chicken tenders which are also consistently great.
Service is good. They are always busy, so sometimes you wait a little longer, but it is always worth it.

Great food, big portions and great service.

We went for dinner tonight - I had the chicken fingers and for a side I ordered the coleslaw. The fingers were amazing as usual and the slaw was fresh and creamy. My hubby had the veal schnitzel and said it was very good.

The bread and butter beforre dinner is nice especially when you have a hungry kid at the table. Only issue tonight was that the bread was stale.

I had one of the famous mudslides and it was amazing as usual. We have been going to this place for years, the food is always good. Weekends there is usually a wait to get in - it's a popular place.

Large, bustling restaurant, yet privacy abounds in large booths where you can catch a quick lunch (specials vary daily) or linger a while w/delectable drinks followed by sumptuous, well-priced entrees. Whether a youngster or an oldster, everyone raves over classic chicken fingers, greek salad, chowders, lamb, steak & countless fish presentations. Their always fresh clams/haddock/scallops are to die for, w/servings to carry-over for a delectable "second meal" for another day.
Service & quality is consistent & repeat business is legendary as this is a landmark in the area.

The food here is really good. A lot to choose from and you will not leave hungry. I have NEVER left here hungry or w/out leftovers in hand.
