So... traveling from out of state, and specifically sought this place out in search of a good burger based on other reviews here. Discussed GF options in Ciders and Beer with bar tender, ordered the burger with GF bun. It came out, looked good, tasted good ( too good). Commented to the bar tender that this was the best gluten free bun I had tasted and queried her if she was certain it was. She hurried back from the kitchen, It was not. I should have been more cautious, the bun was toasted which made it resemble a GF bun. I made it back to the hotel before becoming sick.

They did bring out a correct burger, and it was good, wish they had a GF marker of some sort. Also, still charged me for the burger.

Was hesitant at first as it’s a big and busy place with lots of beer. I was thrilled to find a very knowledgeable staff and large gf menu. I even had lobster bisque! I’d go here again and I’m extremely careful. It had a beautiful deck overlooking the river, reasonable prices and my food was safe and delicious. My waiter was great and I felt fairly safe. That being said, I never feel safe unless I’m in my own kitchen or eating in a dedicated gf facility. I’d go here again and am happy to see there are a number of these restaurants in the New England area.

GFA (available) marked items on regular menu. Precautions noted by server on kitchen ticket. Food delivered and announced “gluten free.” I skipped the sweet potato bean burger because it was made with oats & I didn’t want to take any chances. Also the option for a side was a small bag chips (not fries, shared fryer), which I did not eat because the bag was not labeled gluten free. My companions meals were ~meh, not worthy of 4 stars either. Veggie nachos consisted of raw hot jalapeños and olives, cheese not fully melted. Vegan asked for no aoili which was still delivered on the side thankfully). I (celiac) did not feel ill afterwards, so that’s almost an automatic 3 stars imo!

Both Celiac people in my party had no issues. Our server was new and was conscientious about wanting to make sure we were okay. She did not know answers to many of our questions so it took a while to place an order. One downside to this restaurant is that the kids menu does not mark what is GF. And even with checking most items are not available GF so my kiddo had to order from the adult menu.

They have a separate GF menu and GF buns. My meal wasn't the best. They also don't have a separate fryer unfortunately but it's a decent option.

Gf lobster roll and clam chowder were delicious as was the coleslaw and cider I had. We sat on the deck with a lovely view of the river. Very accommodating waitstaff. It was very exciting to be able to eat a proper lobster roll.

one of the best GF meals I've had in Maine. I ordered a turkey burger with all the toppings and side of veggies. they toasted the Udis bun, so it tasted good. My husband had steak and artichoke salad, also on the GFmenu and it was awesome. I wish I had an opportunity to try their lobster roll, and calamari starter. They also have gfree dessert. I had flour less chocolate cake with raspberry topping, scrumptious!

Great place! The hostess as well as server was very knowledgeable about GF options. They had a concert menu the night I was there so the server went over everything on the menu and told me what I could have. when I ordered my burger she said "sorry. you can't have fries because we don't have a separate fryer. You will have to have the coleslaw. It was great knowing the server was looking out for me!

Gluten free lobster roll available but it came on a hamburger roll that was not toasted or warm. My husband had a regular lobster roll and it had 3 times the amount of lobster. If you are gonna serve a gf lobster roll it should be on a gf hot dog bun. GF selzer was good. Service was TERRIBLE.

Daughter got GF clam chowder it was good we all had it She also got GF lobster roll Definitely experienced some sort of reaction most likely cross contamination as she was SICK in bathroom before we got our check, sickness ended there but felt so bad for her

Very disappointed we were all so excited to find a place in North Conway NH that offered GF foods, especially chowder

Server was knowledgeable, but clearly somewhere between us, her, kitchen and table , someone was not knowledgeable or compliant w GF safety Be warned

Waiter was rude and served me my gluten free meal with non-gluten free fries. Did not tell me that fries were not gluten free until after they were served to me. We used to go here frequently but since the menu has changed it has gone downhill. It’s fine if your in a pinch but there’s better and safer options nearby.

This place is my go to as a celiac. I’ve eaten here several times and the staff is very knowledgeable. I’ve never gotten sick after eating here. I would have rated five stars if it weren’t for one visit where they were very busy and I stressed to the waitress my serious allergy. I was brought out a regular steak and cheese instead of gluten free. I ate the pickle off the plate and was about to bite into the sandwhich (I would have already...had I not been distracted and with family I hadn’t seen in years from out of state). When I was just about to bite into it a waitress stopped me and apologized and brought out the correct one. Very close call.. I would have been deathly ill for weeks, still my favorite celiac friendly place so far. Try the GF muscles for an app (on season).
