Best NH Restaurants in The Merrimack Valley

Below are the top 10 best restaurants we found in the Merrimack Valley region of NH!

Back to the NH Dining Guide | List of NH Restaurants


900 Degrees

50 Dow Street

Manchester, NH



Entrees range from $11-$25

 The best margaritas in Manchester. I would have to say that this is my favorite restaurant in Manchester. I love to sit in front of the warm fireplace on a chilly fall night. My favorite pizza at 900 Degrees is the Tuscan Sun with signature sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, Romano cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, artichoke hearts and extra-virgin olive oil.



Asian Breeze

1328 Hooksett Road

Hooksett, NH



This restaurant is totally different than any other Asian restaurant I have been to. The aspect that makes it so unique is that they have 2 separate menus.  One is your normal Chinese cuisine. The other menu is little known recipes from China, Korea and Japan. I highly recommend the Hunan Beef, pork friend rice and they have the most delicious egg rolls. If you go for lunch, try the Chicken Teriyaki Japanese Luncheon Box which comes with miso soup, salad, tempura and rice.



Bedford Village Inn

2 Olde Bedford Way

Bedford, NH



Entrees range from $18-$39

 This restaurant is a bit pricey but well worth the money. It is often busy so I would recommend making reservations. I have a few recommendations for dinner.  I like the Pan Roasted Atlantic Salmon and the Tea Smoked Long Island Duck Breast. I am not a huge fan of salmon but this one was delicious. And don’t forget to save room for dessert because their Warm Chocolate Molten Cake is out of this world.



Brookstone Grille

Rte 111

Derry, NH



Entrees range from $10-$30

 I have only eaten here once and it was a while ago now so I don’t have a lot to go on. The Bacon Wrapped Maple Roasted Scallops are delicious as an appetizer. For my entrée I had Lobster Ravioli. They are lobster stuffed ravioli with leeks, bell peppers, snow peas and mushrooms cooked in a ginger basil cream sauce. I highly recommend their Lodi Zinfandel wine.



Buckley’s Great Steaks

438 Daniel Webster Highway

Merrimack, NH



Entrees are from $11-$39

The absolute best place to eat steak. I like my steak as rare as can be and Buckley’s cooks it to perfection. Here is what I recommend:  The Gorgonzola Rib Eye steak.  It is a 14 ounce choice rib eye with caramelized onions and Gorgonzola cooked in a red wine sauce. Oh and the best part of the steak is that it is cooked on a wood fired grill. Delicious!



C.R. Sparks

18 Kilton Road

Bedford, NH



Entrees are $9 and up

 A nice restaurant with reasonable prices. I have a few recommendations for you. First of all, go on a Thursday night because they have live jazz music. I also recommend their brick oven pizza. It is incredible.



Chen Yang Li

124 South River Road

Bedford, NH



520 South Street

Bow, NH



Entrees range from $9-$17

 Very reasonably priced. I am a huge fan of Chinese food and of all the Chinese restaurant I have been to this one is one of the best. I have gotten their Moo Goo Gai Pan and it was delicious. The luncheon specials come with soup and rice. For dinner, I would recommend the Crispy Sesame Chicken which is chicken cubes dipped in lotus flour and cooked in a sesame sauce.



The Coliseum Restaurant

264 North Broadway

Salem, NH



Entrees are $15-$25

 Another restaurant that is a bit pricey but still well worth it. The Coliseum Restaurant serves authentic Italian food. I am use to making spaghetti at home with spaghetti sauce from a can so the first time I ate here, I was awe-struck. I have no idea what to even order but the menu was so easy to read and I choose the spaghetti with homemade sausage.  It was delicious.  My husband had the Linguini Alla Frutti de Mare which is lobster, shrimp and clams sautéed with plum tomatoes and onions in a marina sauce.  It was really good. 



The Green Martini

Pleasant Street Extension

Concord, NH



 One of my favorite places to eat in Concord. It is such a fun atmosphere.  They have some of the greatest live entertainment anywhere. From open mic night to live Dj’s to acoustic musicians, there is something for everyone and every musical taste.  They also have the best chicken wings in town. I had the Teriyaki wings and they were to die for. For dinner, I recommend the California Sandwich which is grilled chicken breast with guacamole and Swiss cheese. They really don’t have an extensive menu. Basically they serve appetizers, burgers, sandwiches and salads.



Mile Away Restaurant

52 Federal Hill Road

Milford, NH



Entrees range from $18-$26

 I highly recommend the Baked Stuffed Shrimp. It is out of this world. The restaurant is warm and friendly and has a beautiful fireplace. Yes I have a thing for fireplaces as you can tell by my past articles. My mom had the Maple Salmon. Again I am not a big fan of salmon but my mom loved it.
