1. Buckley’s Great Steaks – Merrimack

At Buckley’s Great Steaks they say “there is no love more sincere than the love of food” and we completely agree. They expertly combine delicious food with a friendly and inviting atmosphere to make for a warm and memorable dining experience. While their entire menu is great, the steaks are obviously the real hit. From their sugar-cured strip loin to the slow-roasted prime rib, there’s something for every palate out there. We recommend the cowboy steak.

Set in a 1785 mansion that just screams vintage elegance, Library Restaurant is the place to be for a super cosy and delicious steak feast.

We recommend their classic filet mignon. Don’t forget to ask for a wine or whiskey pairing.
