Black Forest Cafe
212 Route 101

Parking and entrance are good except that the inner and outer doors open with little space in between, making it difficult to get in without help. Tables are easy to get close to. The accessible bathroom is in the bakery and is not the best setup but there is room. Otherwise friendly and accommodating.

??Maybe?? Parking and entry were accessible, with a walkway to get to the front door. Entry and bathroom were too small for a scooter, but unclear for a wheelchair. Price was right and service was good.
Sugar Shack
314 Route 4


Our rater found this restaurant accessible except for the bathrooms. Apparently the men's room had no door.

Chen Yang Li
124 S. River Road

Short, steep ramp at entrance; one door with small threshold; Three floors but only one is reachable with wheelchair. Multi-stall HC accessible bathroom is a little tight.
Outback Steakhouse
955 River Road
??Maybe?? Accessible parking. Entrance has double doors that were opened by attentive staff. Parts of the restaurant are not accessible due to bar/smoking section seating on a raised platform with high tables. Ladies room accessible, men's room not checked BUT path of travel to men's room was blocked by child high chairs and other obstacles. Braille menu available. The rater called in advance and let the restaurant know he was coming in a wheelchair, but nevertheless, the staff were unaware of this and there was a long delay while waiting for a table. The rater did get an apology and a voucher for his next visit. Despite the problems, the rater recommends the restaurant.
Taipei & Tokyo Restaurant
7 Colby Court


This restaurant is accessible but with a couple of inconveniences. It's located in a shopping center (so far so good), but with no accessible parking in front of the restaurant, and no curb cut for the full length of the curb in front of the store. Entrance had a high threshold and an inconvenient double door. Bathroom was also judged inconvenient. But the food was excellent. 5-10

UPDATE 11-2010: Tea Birds contacted us to say they have moved to a new location - 151 Main Street - with parking in thr rear and accessible entrances and bathrooms. They also noted their decor is funky AND eclectic. Check it out!
OLD REVIEW: Parking is on Main Street, and the "accessible" spaces are not too accessible or near the restaurant. Entrance and interior are accessible. Atmosphere is funky. Rest rooms are very small and not accessible with a wheelchair.

YESWaiter There is plenty of space in this level parking lot, though the markings are not up to code. Entrance is accessible. Interior has booths and tables. Ladies' room is "one of the most accessible I've ever seen and attractive too." Accommodations and attitudes are excellent, service exceptional, food is good.

Canaan, NH 03741
NOTurkey The parking lot was judged to be "pretty good", however it's not clear what that means. The entrance was judged to be inconvenient, but "a wheelchair would have a harder time getting out". We're not sure what that means either. The bathroom was also judged inconvenient, and possibly not usable for someone in a chair. Can anyone clarify? 4-2012

99 Restaurant
60 Diamante Drive
YESWaiter This restaurant is accessible except it has too many booths and not enough tables. Therefore, seating was limited and made the experience less enjoyable than it could have been.
Angelina's Ristorante
11 Depot Street
NOTurkey No parking nearby. Entrance is accessible but interior is small and tight, and bathrooms are inaccessible. Not the best choice.
260 Loudon Road


Accessible parking. The interior design made it difficult to navigate in a manual chair. There is limited accessible seating (too many booths). Management was accommodating when a table was requested. Restrooms were accessible. The overall experience was less than fun due to the seating limitations.
42 N. Main Street

NO Turkey

The entry is inaccessible due to steps: you can't get in. It's a shame Bagelworks is still inaccessible, given the general friendliness of the community-minded owner. But if you can't get in, you can't get in.
12-10 update: This building underwent renovations and is STILL inaccessible. Read about it here:

Barley House
132 N. Main Street
NOTurkey Parking is on Main Street. The main entrance is inaccessible due to steps. The accessible entrance requires you to ring a bell and have the door unlocked. When I visited, there was a pile of chairs blocking the "accessible" entrance. Bathrooms are accessible if you get that far.
Bread & Chocolate
29 S. Main Street
NOTurkey April 2015 update: Bread and Chocolate used to be accessible through a ramp leading in from Gibson's bookstore. Now Gibson's has moved and the entrance is no longer accessible.
Brown Bag Deli
Main Street
NOTurkey Entrance has steps. End of story.

84 N. Main Street

YESWaiter Entrance is accessible. Parking is on Main Street. Tables not booths. Bathrooms are accessible.
Capitol Deli
2 Capitol Plaza


Entrance is accessible. It's a small place and a tight fit though. Bathrooms are accessible.
17 Depot Street
??Maybe?? Depot Street is on a hill, so you'd probably want to park on Storrs Street at the bottom of the hill, and wheel your way up the sidewalk to the curb cut. It's a pretty steep hill. The curb cut has been recently fixed and is now accessible. Interior is multilevel, you won't be able to get to all parts of the restaurant. Outdoor seating is lovely but seats are affixed to tables, which are close together: you're not likely to be comfortable outside. Bathrooms are accessible.
The Common Man
25 Water Street
YESWaiter The Common Man has accessible parking and entry. The entryway is a little tight, but a valet is usually there to open the door. Roomy dining rooms, elevator to second floor. Downstairs bathrooms are accessible, but not upstairs. 1-3-08 Update: On a recent visit the elevator was not functioning properly. The party was seated at a function room upstairs. It took 20 minutes to get the elevator working.
Constantly Pizza
39 S. Main Street
YESWaiter Parking is on Main Street. The entrance is a little problematic, with a ramped paved area up to the door: a little steep, no railing but probably doable. Interior is accessible, as are the bathrooms.

202 N. Main Street

YESWaiter Fully accessible. Since this is a takeout only restaurant, bathrooms were n/a.
The Draft Sports Bar and Grill
67 South Main Street
NOTurkey Inaccessible. The main entrance is up a flight of stairs. There appears to be an accessible door on the ground floor, but alas, it was locked. Assuming one could get in the door, it leads to a single section, with the rest of the establishment upstairs, including the rest rooms. Being a sports bar, it was extremely noisy and hard to hear. 1-9-08
Dragon Star Chinese Restaurant
75 S. Main Street
YESWaiter Fully accessible take-out place.
Eagle Square Deli
5 Eagle Square

Parking is on Main Street and not terribly close. The entrance is not level with abrupt changes as one enters. Interior is tight. Bathrooms were not checked.
203 N. Main Street
YESWaiter Fully accessible

Hermano's Cocina Mexicana
11 Hills Avenue



Accessible parking consists of one space behind and uphill from the building. There is a separate accessible entrance. Inside, the first floor is maneuverable but the second floor, where the music happens, is inaccessible. Our rater uses pointing to make her menu choices, and the staff are accommodating and take extra time for her. Bathrooms are accessible. "Food is wonderful and services excellent". The music probably was too, but our rater couldn't get there.
House of India
6 Pleasant Street
YESWaiter Parking is on-street. Entrance is flat and accessible. The inside is tight with some sharp turns but do-able. Tables are accessible. Big bathrooms.
In a Pinch Cafe and Bakery
146 Pleasant Street

In a Pinch is accessible but inconvenient. Parking was judged as "inconvenient", and the entrance, up a flight of stairs, has a lift. Interior is very tight, bathrooms are also inconvenient. The service, however, was very accommodating and the food was delicious. In a Pinch has a second location, on Pillsbury Street, that is much more accessible.
Longhorn Steakhouse
217 Loudon Road
YESWaiter Fully Accessible
Margarita's Mexican Restaurant
1 Bicentennial Square
NOTurkey This place is loaded with levels and steps, including into the main entrance. There is a separate, inconvenient entrance. Interior is tight. There are accessible tables outside. Parking is on-street.
Moritomo Japanese Steak and Sushi
32 Fort Eddy Road

Moritomo's is located in the Fort Eddy Plaza. There is accessible parking spot near the restaurant, but only one space is correctly marked. No access aisles, but spaces are very wide. On the day our raters went, the accessible spaces had snow covering the pavement-level signs and were all occupied. Entrance was accessible, as were the bathrooms. Stuff was stored in the bathroom hallway, making it a little tight. Only a small portion of the seating is accessible. Tatami rooms are not. Grill tables are hard to get close to. Most tables are in the back and scrunched together, making it hard to get by or to the bathrooms. Food and services, however, were excellent, and wait staff were attentive. You might want to call ahead to get one of the two tables in front.

317 Loudon Road

YESWaiter Fully accessible. A ramp inside gets you to the upper level. Food and service was judged "excellent" and the manager was attentive. 8-11

Ruby Tuesday
327 Loudon Road
NO Turkey 5-25-2007: Doors at entrance were very heavy and no assistance was provided. Tables were very close together, making maneuvering difficult. Bathrooms were a tight fit. The food was judged to be not too good. Parking was accessible.
Sal's Just Pizza
80 Storrs Street
YESWaiter Fully accessible.
Siam Orchid
158 North Main Street
Maybe? April 2015 update: Siam Orchid has moved to a new location. Who wants to go check it out?
North Main Street
YESWaiter Parking is on Main Street, which does have some designated accessible spaces. Entrance is accessible, though doors are a little heavy. Bathrooms are accessible. All tables, no booths.
TGI Fridays
221 Loudon Road
YESWaiter Our rater gave TGI Fridays an across-the-board thumbs up. There was ample parking for cars and vans, wide doors at the entry, and an accessible interior with both booths and tables. "The seating is great for a wheelchair." Restrooms were accessible with clear paths and large stalls. Staff were very helpful.

Restaurant Is it recommended? Review and Comments
14 Manchester Road



Accessible parking is to the left of the front entrance. Entrance is accessible though doors are a bit heavy. Spacious interior, with tables and booths. Some high stools at bar. Ladies room is accessible; men's room not checked. They sat the rater in a booth rather than a table and then tried to remove her chair because it stuck out! Be sure to ask for a table!
La Carreta
35 Manchester Road
Derry Meadows Plaza
YESWaiter Parking is easily accessible, properly marked, and right in front of the restaurant. Doors are light and easy to open. There are two sets, but plenty of room to maneuver. Inside, the host and staff move things around so you can access the tables easily. There are sections that are upstairs, but there is also plenty of seating on the first level. Overall, a good place to eat.

45 Crystal Ave.


8-7-2007 Update:We took a trip to MacDonald's to speak with the manager about the access issues. We were pleasantly surprised to find some improvements in the parking, which now includes a van-accessible spot near an unlocked door. The entryway was still awkward and our rater could not enter without assistance. Seating has been upgraded so that now there are some tables accessible and comfortable from a wheelchair. Bathrooms were still awkward, stall would require leaving the door open for a transfer, and sink was hard to get to. The manager seemed very interested in making changes and agreed to follow up on several suggestions for improvement. The big news is MacDonald's plans to tear down the building and start over from scratch in January or February. That ought to take care of the access issues.

5-25-2007: The accessible entrance near the accessible parking is frequently locked. One family was unable to get in and had to eat in their vehicle. This McDonald's was notified it had a problem six months ago, and has failed to correct the problem. Feedback from prior visits: The fixed seating makes it hard to accommodate a wheelchair. The restroom was inaccessible.

Thai Chef
35 Manchester Road
YESWaiter Building is new, parking and ramps are great. spacious layout, hard packed carpet. Restrooms were not checked. Great management attitude, great food.
39 Crystal Avenue
YESWaiter Parking is right outside the front door and properly marked. Flat entrance, couldn't be easier. Restroom has an accessible stall, but it has a baby changing station in it. Staff were pleasant and it was easy to get around on crutches. Nice, accessible restaurant. Our rater recommends it!

Dover back to top

Restaurant Is it recommended? Review and Comments
Central Avenue
NOTurkey Entry was difficult due to two entries and no automatic doors. There is not enough room between the outer opened door and the curb to maneuver a wheelchair without risk of falling off the curb. Curb cuts were also narrow. Interior access was average, and restrooms were not checked. Temperature was set too cold in the restaurant and quality of food was unacceptable. There are better choices in Dover.

431 Dover Point Road
Dover, NH 03820


Rating #2: Our rater found this restaurant to be accessible with some inconvenience when it came to opening doors. She needed assistance to open the front door, and found the restroom doors were "just barely movable". She found the food to be "only OK". 1-4-08
Rating #1 Our rater found Newick's to be above average in all departments, except for the restrooms, which were rated as average. Hungry, anyone?

Pizza Hut
915 Central Avenue



Accessible parking and inside access were judged to be average. Our rater had problems getting into the restaurant due to the lack of automatic door openers. Management suggested calling ahead to have someone open the door for her. Restrooms were not checked. Wait staff were friendly and some are long time employees.
Update: Pizza Hut has now installed a doorbell so you can get help opening the door.

Strafford Farms Restaurant
Route 108
YES Waiter There is parking for an accessible van. Our rater was able to get into the restaurant using a large scooter, and inside access was great. It doesn't appear there are braille menus. Men's restroom was difficult with the scooter: the women's restroom is more accessible. Food was good too!
Weeksie's Pizzeria
66 3rd Street
??Maybe?? Parking was not good at Weeksie's for unspecified reasons, and the ramp at the entrance has a lip at each end that was hard to negotiate. Once inside, our rater found the interior and restrooms fully accessible, and she enjoyed her dining experience. 4-08

Durham back to top

Restaurant Is it recommended? Review and Comments
Durham House of Pizza and JP's Eatery
38 & 40 Main Street


YES Waiter

These two restaurants are connected.
Accessible parking is available on Main Street, but the number of spaces are limited. There is a parking lot across the street though.
Entrance doesn't have automatic doors, but ordering counters face the door so it's easy to flag someone down, and doors are left open during nice weather (we do have that occasionally in New Hampshire). Interior is a little cramped, tables are small and close together, but you can pull up to them, and there are tables outside in nice weather. Restrooms are accessible though on the small side.
Pizza and subs: good food, decent price, "a good place to eat with friends".
Pauly's Pocket
51 Main Street

YES Waiter

Parking: Fully accessible "parking is available on Main Street directly outside of Young's, but parking spaces are limited. One might have to use the parking lot across the street, but it is less than 100 meters across the street".
Getting into the restaurant: "There is a concrete ramp a few feet to the right of the building, but the incline is very steep. My powerchair had no trouble with it, but a person using a manual chair might. No automatic door, but the counter faces the door, so I'm sure you could flag someone down."
Inside Access: Average. "The place is not very large, about the size of a subway, but there is easily enough room for a chair to move around in. I was able to pull up to a table."
Restrooms: "No accessible bathroom available, but in the defense of the restaurant, its not the type of restaurant that you stay at for very long, its basically a greek subway."
Accommodations: Above Average: "The restaurant is about as accommodating as it can be for its size, the staff seemed very personable, and would definitely read you whats on the menu, allow a service dog, etc. Relaxed environment. Counter was high, but they brought my sandwich around front so I wouldn't have to reach."
Overall Experience: Above Average: "I enjoyed it! This place has the best Greek sandwiches I have ever tasted. The food easily makes up in the ares where it lacks in accessibility."
Wildcat Pizza
3 Madbury Road
NOTurkey Steps. Our rater could not get in. Boo on Wildcat Pizza.
Wings Your Way
13 Jenkins Court
(but probably not)
Wings Your Way was rated by a student without a walking disability so take this rating with a grain of salt and let us know if you have additional comments. Parking is nearby and "can be accessible". Entrance included "very narrow passages, bumps to get into the store, small space in store". Interior had "good lanes for power chair or wheelchair, some steps in eating area for other tables". Restroom probably not accessible. "The food was OK, service was below average but it didn't seem like a disability friendly store."
Young's Restaurant & Coffee Shop
48 Main Street

YES Waiter

Parking: Fully accessible "parking is available on Main Street directly outside of Young's, but parking spaces are limited. One might have to use the parking lot across the street, but it is less than 100 meters across the street".
Getting in: Fully Accessible. "I had no problem getting into the restaurant. The front entrance has a small set of stairs with a nice built-in ramp on the side. There is no automatic door, but the hostess station is right near the door."
Inside Access: Inconvenient but doable. "It was not a huge deal getting around this restaurant with my wheelchair, but it could be better. It was a little difficult to find a place where I could pull up to a table and not be out in the aisle or be in someone's way, but with some correct placing it can be done. I was also able to pull my chair up under a table, which surprised me because that rarely happens."
Restrooms are fully accessible.
Other accommodations: "When inquiring the waitress about accommodations, such as reading the menu to a disabled patron, she said they do provide accommodations as such, but not being able to see it first hand, I cannot validate the statement. Judging from their 'handicap friendly atmosphere', I'm sure they would have no problems with specific accommodations."
Finally, our rater recommends the Eggs Benedict and adds that on Tuesday mornings you can get two breakfasts for the price of one.
An enjoyable place to dine!

Attentive staff see you coming and offer assistance. Interior is roomy with lots of maneuvering room in aisles and around tables. The accessible bathroom is accessible and locked, but "the staff is happy to help, and always willing to go the extra mile to accommodate special requests."

NOTurkey Parking was not well marked and required crossing the drive-up traffic to enter the building. Entrance and inside access were accessible. Bathrooms, however, were not.

Our rater says, "When I asked about the restrooms, it was suggested that I visit a McDonald's at a different location!"

China Wok

NOTurkey The front entrance is inaccessible. There is a substandard ramp at the rear of the building which will bring you through the kitchen. The smell of garbage is distinctive. Bathrooms were not checked.
463 West Street Plaza
NOTurkey There are two Friendly's on West Street in Keene. Our rater checked out the one at the West Street Plaza. While the people were nice, the atmosphere "friendly", and the parking accessible, Friendly's was not too user-friendly if you are in a wheelchair, starting with the entrance, with heavy doors and a sharp turn. Our rater could not get in without assistance. Interior layout was tight. The bathroom door was also too heavy to open without assistance, and the stall is at a strange angle, making it inconvenient.
10 Central Square
NOTurkey On-street parking, a few accessible spots on the street with ramped curbs, but if they're full you're out of luck. Winter is especially difficult due to snow accumulation. The entrance has a very steep, narrow ramp obstructed by a table full of menus. Main room is very tight for a wheelchair or crutches. If you call ahead, you can make arrangements to eat in the side room and enter through a side door, which they will come and unlock when you arrive. If there is a special event in that room, as there often is, you are out of luck. If you can get in the bathrooms are accessible. June 2014
Nicola's Trattoria
51 Railroad Street
YESWaiter Nicola's has moved to a new location on Railroad Street but is just as accessible as before. There's on-street parking and a covered parking garage nearby. The entrance is ramped, the interior is roomy, better than the last location, and the bar area is accessible. The restrooms are also accessible. The food was excellent. 2-8-11
Pedraza's Mexican Restaurant
45 Central Square
YESWaiter On street parking was judged accessible. The main entrance is also accessible but there's a steep ramp. The door was propped open, making it easier to get in. Interior was spacious; however, the outdoor tables were not accessible. The menu is easy to open for someone who uses an adaptive hand brace, and the silverware was light and easy to use.

The Pub
131 Winchester Street
NOTurkey 8-3-2007 update:

Last month we posted the following review of the Pub based on information sent to us by a reviewer:

“Bathrooms were inaccessible due to a narrow hallway and doorframe, and front entrance required assistance. Parking and interior were accessible, however, and our rater enjoyed her dining experience.”

Shortly after we posted the above review, we received a call from Mayor Mike Blastos of Keene. The Mayor told us he was the owner of the Pub, and that he strongly disagreed with our rating. He claimed the Pub has been completely accessible since 1985. He said the front entrance and bathrooms were completely accessible. He offered to meet us at the restaurant and show us.

A few weeks later, we called and left a message for Mayor Blastos so that we could set up a meeting and tour. His return message to us was as follows:

“Good afternoon, this is Mayor Blastos, City of Keene, from the Pub Restaurant and Caterers as well, returning your call. If this is a followup for to come down I see no sense bothering with it, it’s not necessary that I be in your book. It’s your handicapped that lose out, not me. Thank you. Bye bye.”

We went anyway, with measuring equipment. What we found were even more problems than had been spotted by our rater before. Some highlights:

Parking: The two marked accessible parking spaces did not meet accessibility guideline standards. They were marked by one sign that was difficult to see, in part because it was too low, well below the ADAAG standard of 60 inches from the ground. There were no access aisles for either space, and no space that was van accessible.

Entrance: The door required 7-8 pounds of pressure to open, more than the 5 pound maximum suitable for people with disabilities. Our rater did indeed require assistance.

Interior was do-able although much of the seating was booths. Our rater was seated at a pedestal table without enough leg room to get the wheelchair up to the edge of the table.

Bathrooms: There were two sets of men’s and women’s bathrooms, one near the cash register, and one in the back of the restaurant. The forward bathrooms were unquestionably inaccessible due to very narrow doors and very little floor space.

The bathrooms in the rear required using a path of travel that included a raised threshold through a doorway that looked difficult to maneuver and greater than the maximum ½ inch specified by ADAAG: we did not measure it, however.

The first major problem with the rear bathrooms was the entrance, which is through a small alcove with no maneuvering space. Door handles were standard round, not the recommended lever or push bar. The doorway’s clearance was 30 inches, two inches smaller than required for access: our rater could not get into the bathroom. Even if the rater had been able to get in, the interior space was too small to maneuver a wheelchair, made even smaller by the placement of a chair in the space. Due to a shelf that juts out from the wall the length of the bathroom at a height of 40 inches, the width between sink and opposite wall is 34 inches, and between toilet and opposite wall is a mere 22 inches, not nearly enough turning space. Recommended turning space is 60 x 60 inches of clear space.

The bathroom mirrors were mounted too high to use from a wheelchair (bottom of lowest mirror was 41 inches), and the towel dispenser was a whopping 61 inches from handle to floor. With the exception of grab bars and faucets with lever handles, there was not much in this bathroom that could be called accessible.

We hope the Mayor will set a good example and make his restaurant more accessible.

Stage Restaurant and Cafe
30 Central Square



Here's something different: we had two raters come to different conclusions on this restaurant. One rater says the interior is very tight, and another rates it as fully accessible. The raters also disagreed about whether the women's room was accessible.
There is one accessible parking space on the street and close to the restaurant, and the entrance is accessible. Floor plan is very tight, and the women's room was tiny and inaccessible. Nobody checked the men's room. 5-2010
Thai Garden
118 Main Street
YESWaiter Our rater found parking to be accessible though there was only one space. The entry had an airlock that was narrow with no automatic door, but staff were helpful. Accessible interior. Large bathroom was accessible but the door was judged challenging even though it had a lever handle. Staff were "fully accommodating", though "They did come up on my left even though I told them not to." Overall experience: "Very good. Nice folks."

The Works Bakery Cafe

Keene, NH 03431
??Maybe?? The Works was welcoming to service dogs and generally accommodating. Parking was on-street and there weren't many accessible spaces. The entry had a double door vestibule with heavy doors and a threshold, it was hard to maneuver. Inside access was good, although most of the tables are small and hard to get under in a wheelchair. Bathroom was accessible but small. 3-2016

Burger King
326 Meadow Street

Our rater found Burger King to be accessible but somewhat inconvenient. Parking is accessible, but our rater, who uses a wheelchair and has someone to assist her, goes in backwards due to no push button at the doors. Seating is fixed, and somewhat inconvenient. Rest rooms are judged accessible. The rater reports some "looks" from staff, but still enjoys Burger King.

99 Restaurant
683-685 Meadow Street

YESWaiter Parking was accessible, as was entrance and interior. Restrooms also accessible. Our rater says, "This was my first time, and it was truly a great experience with staff, facility, and meal very well worth it. Staff was polite, accommodating, and understanding to the needs of both myself and my friend. The 99 Restaurant gets a total thumbs up!"

YESWaiter Very accessible restaurant. Multiple accessible parking spaces, entrance and dining room are accessible. The gift shop, however, is largely inaccessible due to surplus of merchandise, and register counter could use an accessible shelf. Braille menus available. Friendly , knowledgeable wait staff, treat customers like family. Our rater says, "My favorite restaurant!"
Ginger Garden
44 Nashua Road
YESWaiter Parking is the only issue here: There are marked accessible spaces with an access aisle. However, there are parking spaces directly in front of the ramp, so if someone parks there you may or may not be able to get down. Everything else was above average. Flooring was packed carpet and tile. Bathrooms were roomy with lowered mirrors and insulated pipes under the sink. Food was delicious.

NOTurkey Not accessible: stairs and no ramp.

Super Wok
25 Orchard View Drive

NOTurkey There are no signs or access aisles for accessible parking on the accessible side of the building. Ramp is a makeshift version of built-up tar. entrance and interior were average or above average, with packet carpeting. Restrooms: there is an extremely heavy glass door separating the hallway to the restrooms from the restaurant. The door opens into the hallway, so it would be nearly impossible to open from a wheelchair. There is a planter blocking the path of travel to the door.

All Juiced Up
790 Elm Street

Parking is on the street. Sidewalks and curb cuts are bumpy but doable. The entrance has a slope, a slight bump and not an automatic door. Counter height is a bit high, but employees are friendly and helpful. Our raters ordered their food and the waitperson brought it out to them at the outdoor table. Restrooms are not accessible - there are "a couple stairs" to the restroom, so we can't recommend this restaurant. However, the food was great, natural and healthy. As of 4/7/10, outdoor construction made it difficult to have a conversation.
Belmont Hall & Restaurant

955 Second Street
NOTurkey There is inadequate accessible parking, and the ramp is at a separate entrance in the rear, with a door that's hard to open. Perhaps someone should tell the Colonel that the days of a separate (but equal) entrance in the rear are over. If you get in, the tables are easily accessible, but a zig-zag line to the registers is somewhat inconvenient.
La Carretta Mexican Restaurant
545 Daniel Webster Highway
??Maybe?? Restaurant is in a strip mall with accessible parking spaces. Entrance has a 1" beveled lip to get in. Bathrooms are accessible but soap and paper towels are hard to reach. The problem, however, is that the restaurant has two levels, one inaccessible, and the accessible level has booths (you'd have to sit in the aisle) and high tables. There is one accessible table in the corner. Do-able but not great.

Restaurant has tables and bar has high booths and stools with no place for wheelchairs. The second floor is inaccessible to those who cannot climb stairs. The multi-stall, wheelchair accessible restroom is nowhere near the bar but instead way in the back. Management were not terribly receptive about feedback on this issue.

Cafe on the Oval

??Maybe?? Parking is on the "Milford Oval" There is one accessible space within about 50 feet of the entrance. Getting in required assistance to enter. Door handles are not ADA compliant. There is a double door entrance which provides insufficient amount of space to maneuver. Inside access was somewhat restricted by narrow aisles with patron's chairs in them. Our rater had to ask patrons to move their chairs to get by. Tables were easy to roll up to from the aisle side. Dining bar was not accessible. Restrooms had round knobs and paper towel dispenser was too high to reach. Toilet and sink were accessible, with grab bars around toilet. "Food was great and staff was friendly". 1-08

Giorgio's Ristorante & Meze Bar
524 Nashua Street


Parking meets ADA requirements and provided easy access to the restaurant entrance. Entrance is the same for all patrons. Door widths meet ADA requirements but seemed somewhat heavy to pull/push to open and required assistance to navigate through both the outer and inner entrances. Wait staff thoughtfully and respectfully makes seating accommodations at certain tables so as not to have to navigate the main dining area, which may have been difficult. Path to the outdoor patio area is through the bar area which seemed a little narrow between the bar itself and the adjacent tables to navigate through, but was manageable. Seating again was easily accessible by the wait staff. Depending on chair type, getting positioned closely to table edge may be somewhat difficult based on the table base design. Eating distance is not overly uncomfortable and manageable. Wait staff went out of their way to make sure seating accommodations were met and that dining experience was pleasurable. Restrooms were not checked. The cuisine is "delicious". 1-08

Nashua, NH 03060



Our rater found this fully accessible and enjoyable EXCEPT for the path into the restaurant. Between the accessible parking spot and the accessible entrance was a stretch of sidewalk/ramp that had potholes. Further, there were no railings and the slope of the ramp was angled such that our rater feared her wheelchair was going to pitch into the DW Highway. So if you do go to Lui Lui's, make sure you go with a friend who can assist you!
Mandarin Restaurant
493 Amherst Street



There are two accessible parking spots in front that are used by the entire complex, but the markings and signage don't meet ADA requirements. There were no appropriately sized van accessible aisles, and no accessible parking out back at all. Both front and rear entrances required assistance due to non-ADA-compliant door handles: front entrance also had a double set of doors with limited space in between, making navigation difficult, and rear door had a high threshold. However, once our rater got in, he found the interior to be fine: plenty of navigation space, easily accessible tables that allow you to pull as close as you like (though be careful: there are sharp brackets under the tables that can jab you).Restrooms were not checked. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was "above average".

The outside dining area is inaccessible to wheelchairs. Restroom was "reasonably accessible", but with a fair amount of kitchen traffic at the restroom entrance. Service was slow, lighting was low and menu somewhat difficult to read for someone with low vision. Bar is in same room as restaurant, making it noisy and difficult to hear the waitress. Food was excellent but slow.

NOTurkey Parking was inadequate: not striped properly, with an inadequate number of spaces and snow and wood often piled in inaccessible places. Entrance was awkward and could not be done in a wheelchair without assistance. Dining room is cold and dark, and the pub area (with the good views) is inaccessible. Restroom was "horrible" for everyone. Manager had a bad attitude, and food was bad. A must miss.

McKenna's Restaurant
47 Newport Road
New London



Parking lacks van accessible access aisles but otherwise level, well signed, and striped. Entrance was a little tight with magazine racks and small space in the airlock, but do-able if someone holds the door. Tables and booths. Wheelchairs may have to stick out into traffic areas, and salad bar is hard to reach. Ladies room had some problems: entrance door lacks necessary clearance, towels and soap are hard to reach, and bathroom stall is too small to close the door if you use a wheelchair. Service and food is excellent, however.

Lobster Quest
Route 16

Our rater had a very unfortunate experience with her service dog at Lobster Quest. Here is her report:
"I was denied service because of my service dog. I was greeted with “you can’t have a dog in here – we have a strict policy of no dogs”. I explained that he is my service dog, whereupon I was told that since I drove in I obviously could see!! I told him there are hearing dogs and seizure alert dogs – they are called “service dogs”. The man’s answer was “I don’t care I don’t want that dog in here, you have to leave”. I told him that the Americans with Disabilities Act gives him the right to be with me everywhere I go. We sat in the corner, waiting for the people I was going to meet. The man was telling me to leave since he wouldn’t serve me. It got pretty ugly and I told him to call the police. Instead he called the owner who came in and said she didn’t want a big hairy dog in the middle of her restaurant. I reminded her that I was in the corner, and according to the ADA had every right to be there. They demanded I put the cape on my dog, I told them that the ADA states that he doesn’t have to wear it. they demanded his paperwork – I told them that there is no paperwork required. They said maybe not in Maine, but it is in NH. I told them to call the NH Governors Commission on Disabilities and educate themselves to what the laws in NH say. Eventually the Tamworth police did arrive and told me that the proprietors have the right to deny service to anyone they choose and since they were denying me service I had to leave. The police officer proceeded to tell me I was not being discriminated against – I was just being denied service. He then asked me what my dog did for me and I told him he’s a medical alert dog. He asked “for what medical condition” and I told him that according the Americans With Disabilities Act I am not required to answer that question."
Hard to believe there are restaurants that are still so ignorant.

YESWaiter The following issues were noted with Applebee's: the entry doors are not electric but the staff come out and open them for you. With her electric wheelchair, our rater could get into the bathroom but couldn't turn around the chair - she had to leave the door open! Nevertheless, our rater loves this restaurant and goes there a lot.

1465 Woodbury Avenue
YESWaiter Parking is in a strip mall across from the door, but due to curb cuts you have to make al detour to get in. The entry has a first and second door with a foyer in between. Both doors open outward, and someone usually needs to assist with the somewhat awkward arrangement. Interior is roomy and so are the bathrooms.
Redhook Brewery
35 Corporate Drive
NOTurkey Our rater summed up the Redhook as "somewhat inconvenient". Parking was inconvenient, and the entrance was only accessible "with the help of other patrons who held the door open for me". Interior layout: inconvenient. Bathrooms were also a disappointment, toilet was difficult to use due to the lack of a grab bar, so our rater was unable to transfer. Also noted no handle on the toilet door. Despite this, our rater enjoyed the experience. It must be said they also have a cool website. If you decide to brave the inconveniences, give them some feedback so they can do better.
Ruby Tuesday

Portsmouth, NH 3801

Parking was accessible but to get onto the ramp required going to the end of the building - not too convenient but do-able. The entry was also inconvenient because, once the large front door was open, there was little room to maneuver the chair. Interior was also inconvenient - chairs had to be moved in order to get to the table, which was too low. Bathroom wasn't checked. But the food was good and the wait staff were respectful!

Dynasty Restaurant
24 Signal Street
??Maybe?? Our rater had to park far away from the building to have room for accessible van. Entrance and inside access were good. Restroom doors were not big enough for a big scooter (we're not sure about a wheelchair), but once inside the bathrooms are roomy. There was a buffet with assistance if needed.
Froggie's Place
133 North Main Street

This place is inaccessible. There are two steps in, and if that doesn't stop you, there are no railings to Froggy's Placehold on to. Someone suggested they put in railings, and as you can see in the photo, they put in...bathroom grab bars. As our rater declared, "It's easy access for any gymnast!" 9-13

NOTurkey This new restaurant is inaccessible. There are steps into the front door. Around back there is a ramp into the kitchen, which is in poor condition including some rather large holes, and covered with junk. It appears to be used only for unloading to the kitchen and storage. Sad. Our rater loves Thai food. 10-13

Nice, accessible restaurant. The only problem noted is the signage for the parking - it's on the ground, where snow will likely obscure it in winter.

Round Rock

YESWaiter Parking was judged to be average, with one accessible spot just wide enough for a van lift. There were two entrances: the one on the left enters the bar. The right hand door has a double entrance too tight to enter independently in a wheelchair. The interior was roomy, with ramps connecting separate dining rooms. Restrooms are huge, fully accessible and private. The restaurant loved having a service dog and provided it with a dish of water. Food was great, "sirloin was awesome!"

Despite the fact that this restaurant is mostly physically accessible, it does not get a good review due to its refusal to provide a requested and needed accommodation. The rater requested a booth close to the entrance and was told that was not possible because management does not allow customers to determine where they will sit! Really. Bathrooms were not checked for accessibility.

NOTurkey Parking was marked properly but there was no ramp and a pretty large bump up if using a wheelchair. The entrance door swings onto the sidewalk, making maneuvering difficult. Inside access was fine. Restrooms were accessible but if you walk slowly, leave some time because they're a long haul. Food was mediocre and pricey.
