    I was just there tonight. Horrible service. I was the only one there, they say me and after 20 minutes no one had come to so much as bring me water. Pretty sure they just forgot about me. I walked out and am now currently enjoying flatbread pizza down the street. Not impressed.

    Great little place. Service was slow but one of the best GF menus I've ever seen. Lots of knowledge, GF fish and chips was lovely - such a rarity to see. Even lots of GF desserts - the s'mores setup was adorable. Clam chowder was good too.

    Completely separate GF kitchen need I say more! This means everything is Celiac friendly. They actually get it because both of their kids have celiacs. It was so good we went for both lunch and dinner. Everything was very good and the staff was very friendly and knowledgable.

    Large selection of gluten free food. Kids weren't overly impressed with the chicken broccoli Alfredo but seemed happy with the chicken tenders and French fries. Atmosphere wasn't great but staff was very nice and knowledgeable. A bit pricey for what it was.

    I was so pleased to find such a wonderful place! It is the most comprehensive GF menu I have ever (and probably will ever) see! I was especially pleased to find GF dessert options. My kids had pizza, husband had nachos, and I had citrus haddock. All very good. My kids had the woodie pie and brownie for dessert (which were also milk free)....super yummy!!!

    My first review starts here. Huge GF menu and articles about the GF friendly place on the walls. Was the first place we've ever been asked if anyone in the party needs a GF menu BEFORE sitting down! Not the cleanest dining room but the menu is extensive. My daughter is also dairy free and the waitress wasn't so sure as she was with GF options but did check. Huge plentiful portions. I had the BBQ combo which was very good, wife fishermans platter and kids split fish and chips. Four remarkable desert options as well. Only one dirty bathroom and you have to walk by the kitchen to get there. I took one star off because of the appearance of the kitchen (was a fry cook as a kid), they say they have a seperate GF area but could not distinguish. Certainly will return next year when on vacation. Thanks for being dedicated to the GF diners in the area. Also said they have Celiac meetings and GF cooking classes!

    Can't say enough good things about this place. The first clam chowder I've had in a year, plus great pizza. So nice to feel safe eating out! Can't wait to try desserts & take-home pizza crusts.

    We come here every time we go to North Conway, because this place seems to really understand how to cook safely for patrons with Celiac. (the kitchen has a gluten free side where all gluten free food is prepared & cooked). They have a lot of gluten free options, such as pizza, pasta, french fries, which are difficult to find in other restaurants and my son can eat it without worrying about getting sick. However, the food itself (gluten free and "regular") is really just mediocre and the dining room could use a serious cleaning and makeover.

    By far, the best restaurant for celiacs that we have ever been to! We found this restaurant 2 years ago and it was wonderful. We just returned from another visit to the North Conway, NH area and ate there twice. The menu is huge, the wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is fantastic! The kitchen is divided in half to reduce the chance of cross contamination and there are so many choices it is hard to decide. Our family tried the chicken fingers, hamburger, fish sandwich, mac and cheese and French fries (yes, FRIES!!) and everything was fabulous.

    Absolutely delicious! My husband and I both loved the Cajun Chicken Sandwich (mine on a gluten free roll). The homemade chips are really yummy too. Love that they have gluten free options!

    Amazing! I got a seafood platter that had fried fish, scallops, shrimp and clams along with onion rings and fries. I also had the French onion soup. It was so good that I got shrimp and scallops to put in our camper freezer to take home. I will be back next time I'm in the area. Thank you!

    Visited for lunch while on vacation from the UK in September 2013. All I can say is this place is wonderful! The choice of gluten-free food was great, with so many usually forbidden foods to choose from. We eventually decided on the chili nachos, which were not only delicious but also enormous and enough to fill two of us delicate English types. The staff (and the other customers who were sitting at the bar during our visit) were very friendly too. Can't recommend Rafferty's highly enough. Thanks!

    Huge gluten free menu- I actually had a hard time choosing something. Large portions (more than I could eat), but I was very happy with the quality of the food. I'd recommend trying their homemade potato chips. They serve them warm.

    Ummmmm what?! This was amazing! I travel all over New England for work, and this is in my Top 2! I am a super sensitive celiac, and I have never felt so safe and left so satisfied! Crazy, large menu and great dessert choices. Top 2? This baby is my new Number 1!

    All I have to say is AMAZING! I recently went to NH for a long weekend and had dinner at Raffertys. Their GF menu was so large I had trouble deciding. So of course I had to go back the next day for lunch. GF Smores tableside is a must. I will definitely be going back!

    It was amazing. We went as a family of 5 and ordered clams, fish and chips, burger, pasta and a panini, along with wings, onion rings, chicken tenders and much more. There were four pages of options. I would highly recommend this to gluten free individuals.

    Extensive GF menu offering many appetizers, entrees & desserts. Several brands of GF beer available too. Owners have a daughter with celiac disease so 1/2 the kitchen is GF with a dedicated fryer and a very well trained staff that ask you if you need a GF menu the moment you walk in. I enjoyed GF croutons on a salad, fried haddock $ onion rings.

    Separate GF menu. Almost 100% GF. Amazing choices. Had a salad with great GF croutons. Ravioli was store bought GF brand but red sauce and GF breadstick seemed homemade. Was impressed! Really friendly staff as well.

    Extensive gluten free menu, and several brands of gluten free beer. There were so many options it was hard to decide what to order for our meal. Half of their kitchen is GF, there is a dedicated GF fryer and the staff is trained to understand the GF diet (owner's children have celiac). Was able to have GF onion rings, a first in quite a few years! They sell GF frozen foods to go, and several dessert options. I wish this place was in my town!

    We love Rafferty's and return there every time we are in the area. They have the most extensive gluten free menu of all of the GF restaurants we've visited. Everything we've tried has been great. They even have a large selection of GF appetizers! The decor could use some updating, but that's easily overlooked given the menu and service.
