It's no secret that we have a loud and proud foodie population here in New England, and with good reason.

Countless magazines, websites, and digital platforms have written about our diverse and delicious food scene. Many of our New England restaurants were featured on Yelp's 'Top 100 US Restaurants 2023' list, visited by Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, or praised by the New York Times on their prestigious Restaurant List.

The existence of the Seacoast Eats Facebook group is further evidence of how much we love our food. With over 50,000 members at the time of this writing, the page continues to draw in crowds eager to talk about their favorite restaurants, share updates on openings and closings, and discuss the best (and worst) eats around. It's the perfect place to get the scoop on all things food on the Seacoast.

Anyway, we could sit here all day talking how great our area's food scene is. But what restaurants throughout the Granite State – be it new or old, big or small, fancy or casual – are peoples' favorites? The all-around best of the best?

We decided to ask our Facebook audience for recommendations on their favorite restaurants in New Hampshire, and compiled the most popular responses in the list below. How many of these places have you been to? Is your favorite spot missing from the list? Let us know.
