Restaurant Review: Johnson's Seafood & Steak, Northwood, New Hampshire: Worth a trip

If hunger pangs hit you while driving between Concord and Portsmouth on Route 4, I suggest you stop in at Johnson's Steak and Seafood in Northwood. This is a family restaurant with all the comfort foods of growing up in New England. I remember visiting the restaurant for ice cream on trips back from the seacoast and the beach. It has been awhile and I have grown up since then but the good food and great service remain the same.

Restaurant Review: The Purple Finch Cafe, Bedford, New Hampshire: Never Again

A visit to The Purple Finch Cafe was a disaster. After we were seated, I expected someone to come right over to take our drink order but this didn’t happen. Instead, we sat there for at least five minutes wondering if anyone would acknowledge our existence. The waitress finally comes over and I put in my order. Keep in mind that I couldn't understand why it was taking so long because there seemed to be plenty of staff and it did not seem that busy.
