Don't take reservations and not worth the wait. They are not friendly and can be downright unpleasant. Such a disappointment.

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.
