One thing's for sure: there's no shortage of television shows about food. Whether they're focused on cooking competitions, traveling to experience the best cuisine, or sharing recipes, the ever-growing number of these programs demonstrates that if there's one thing people love, it's food.

Some people prefer the more mellow options like Great British Baking Show, while others enjoy the tension and drama that's inevitable with programs like with Hell's Kitchen, for example. Apparently, there are lots of ways one can screw up Beef Wellington, and Gordon Ramsay isn't afraid to let chefs have a piece of his mind when it inevitably happens.

Similar to Hell's Kitchen, shows like Master Chef, Chopped, and Tournament of Champions appeal to those who enjoy watching competitions and seeing who will come out on top. Options like Man vs Food and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives gives viewers the chance to see dishes from restaurants across the country. Restaurant: Impossible appeals to those who like fixer-upper shows, while Good Eats and Delicious Miss Brown teach people about new recipes.

Naturally, because of all the shows out there, lots of regional restaurants have been featured in one way or another.

But which establishments from New Hampshire have been seen on the big screen? Here are 14 Granite State restaurants that have been featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel, and more.

New Hampshire is filled to the brim with awesome watering holes! For me, what takes a bar from "MEH" to "YEAH !" is a friendly and attentive staff, a wide selection of cocktails, activities (boardgames, darts, pool) and bonus points if they offer mozzarella sticks that can knock my socks off. Here are the friendliest bars (and bartenders) in New Hampshire according to our listeners.
