Raffertys Pub In Nh

Recommended Posts

I had heard about Rafferty's Pub in North Conway, NH because they have a very extensive gluten-free menu due to the owners having a child with celiac. I planned a weekend in North Conway so my daughter could eat at a restaurant that had gluten-free appetizers and fries and desserts etc. There were 3 families that went and we were so disappointed in the quality of the food and the service. The first night, they brought everyone's food except for my DD (the only one with celiac) because the waitress forgot. No big deal as mistakes happen. The waitress puts in the order and when it comes out 10 minutes later it had a breadstick on the dish. DD asks if that is a gluten-free breadstick and when the waitress looks at it, realizes that the entire dish (pasta) was regular pasta and not even gluten-free. What if the breadstick hadn't been there? My daughter would have assumed it was the rice pasta and would have eaten it. That would have been a disaster! To top off the evening (after waiting another 10 minutes for the gluten-free dish), her dish was just very poor quality. Another person in our party got steak tips and some of them came red inside and some of them were burnt. I took DD back for lunch the next day and her cheeseburger was so burnt that she couldn't eat it. Our final meal there that evening (it was the only choice for gluten-free food in the area) brought more half done/half raw steak tips. The final straw was when my DD asked for a salad with her meal (supposedly at a reduced price if you add it to a meal) and when I asked the waitress what the cost was, she said "Either $1.99 or $2.99." Well, when the bill came, I was charged $3.99 for the same exact salad that they charge $2.99 for on the non gluten-free menu. When I asked why it was more expensive than the non gluten-free salad and not at a reduced price when with a meal, she shrugged and said "That is the price."

They did have good chicken fingers and fries, but that was about it. Too bad because they have a big selection of gluten-free items.

:D Hello I live in Rochester NH and have been on a gluten free diet now for 5 years when I heard about this place in NO CONWAY I was so excited it is almost 1 hour drive but well worth it. I have never gotten a bad meal there and the wait staff and owners are very nice and always come out and chat withn people. There menu has gotten so large in the last year it is h=just a wonderfull experience going out to eat there. You should call them and express your concerns because something must have gotten messed up when ordering I have not heard anyone that goes there for gluten free complain like this before so I had to just write my own experiences there

IT IS A WONDERFULL PLACE TO EAT
