The food was delicious! My husband and I were both happy with our dishes.The menu is interesting, but pricey. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall. They have decorated it well, but the building is kind of run down. You could feel the floors shaking every time someone walked by. Our meal for 2 was about $80.00, this... More

I have eaten at Bantam several times and have never been disappointed. The food and the service is consistently good and the atmosphere is very pleasing. There are very few places that are comfortable for my 92 year old father. Bantam is great for him because even when its busy its not too loud.

We live in the area, and ate here during the week. The service was very friendly and just fine. Our waitress was the only reason we would even consider coming back. The food was amazingly without flavor, meat over-cooked, seafood bland, and while the sauce was ok, it seemed like the entire approach was "throw some greens over it and... More

My chicken was good as was my wife's burger. It seemed to be a comfort food kind of place in a small shopping mall on the outskirts of Peterborough The wine was good, and they served a generous glass. Our tiramisu was very good.

My wife and I have dined here on our own and with friends on a regular basis for the last 18 months and the food and service seems to be taking a hit. Don't know what's going on, need staff, minor menu changes and not paying attention to details. Anyway, won't return.

Here's the thing. Peterborough is not New York or Boston or Portland, but you can get a decent meal at Bantam Grill. My quibbles are about things that could be fixed or tweaked. First, the ambience is pretty much what you would expect in a relatively rural area; the bar dominates the front of the room. I would say more... More

Excellent ecclectic menu. Everything prepared perfectly from appetizers to soups and salads, main courses and desserts. Friendly wait staff and the best bar in the area. Be sure to make a reservation so you do not miss out.

I was on my way thru Peterborough and planned on my usual stop the Diner in the center of town, but it was closed. I hit the tripadvisor app on my phone which told me the Bantam Grill was less than a mile away and I had driven right by it on my trip. I fully agree that is a... More

This place is as good as it gets for us. It starts with the very skillfully preferred drinks. I favor a Negroni, prepared with Uncle Val's gin and an artisanal vermouth. Perfect combination of bitter, herb, and citrus. Morgan, the bartender is an enduring presence. He is always willing to explain or provide samples. Their house cocktails are creative and... More

My family of 21 were in Peterborough for a family reunion. My daughter arranged with Bantam Grill in advance to provide lunch for us on Saturday. When we arrived, a special area had been set up for us. Staff was very organized & friendly. Presentation of food was very nice. One daughter got the soup & her husband the salad,... More
