Suggestions for dinner before baseball game in Manchester, NH

The title says it all. I am looking for suggestions for dinner for 7 in Manchester. Looking for great food, comfortable atmosphere and the willingness to accommodate a six-year old foodie.

The baseball game starts at 7:30 so we'd be dining early.

As an aside, does anyone know how the food is at Merchantsauto Stadium?

  1. We go to City Flame Smokehouse before games, although it can get crowded, since they don't have a huge amount of seating.

    1. I've found the food at the Fisher Cats stadium to be good concession food. I think its better than what they serve at the Verizon Wireless for events. The Sam Adams Grill in the left field area has some decent pre-game specials.
      The park made the news earlier this season as PETA named it a veggie-friendly park. Great place to watch a game, hope you get good weather.

      1. 900 Degrees does a good pizza go early, gets crowded
        If your 6 year old is REALLY a foodie, try Pho Golden Bowl for good Viet food.
        Woodman's of Essex has a branch in Litchfield just 6 mi south of Manch at Mel's Funway Park for fried clams

        1. Right downtown: Firefly Bistro and Richard's Bistro for real foodies; the Wild Rover and Shaskeen for more casual diners.

            Richards is definitely not for a 6yr old, but I do like the recommendation for Firefly. I would also suggest Strange Brew Tavern, they have excellent burgers and other pub style great for a baseball game mood food and the dining room is very kid friendly.
