7 North Conway, NH Restaurants with Insanely GREAT Food
Updated: Dec 10, 2021
Show your love for small businesses and locally owned North Conway restaurants and consider eating local rather than fast food or chain restaurants!
Fear not! According to TripAdvisor, there are 88 restaurants in North Conway, NH!
There is a balance of chain and locally owned restaurants in North Conway. Personally, I wish there were only a smattering of chain restaurants and about 83 locally owned businesses!
Many of our locally owned restaurants are members of a very active restaurateur group called “Valley Originals”. Any restaurant with a yellow flag sporting a plate and a fork waving proudly is a member of this group.
I know most of the Valley Original restaurant owners and can attest to the fact that they are committed to their restaurants in North Conway, serve up insanely great food and are active and philanthropic in this wonderful community.
OK, we’ve all done it.
Drive into a town that you don’t know anything about and whip into a chain restaurant because you know the food won’t be terrific but it will be consistent.
I'm a local and I guarantee you great food at locale North Conway restaurants!
Please consider supporting one of the great locally owned restaurants in North Conway I've listed below.

For the foodies out there, their menu combines tradition with new and inventive tastes. They strive to use fresh, local ingredients when available in their Italian dishes. The pasta is fresh and made on-site.
Every meal is complete with artisan sourdough bread which is prepared daily and wood-fire baked. Trust me, you'll be ordering a second basket of bread!

I refer to Red Fox as a North Conway restaurant but really, they are located in Jackson. We won't hold that against them though. :)
Red Fox Restaurant has been through a lot in the past many years! The were located in a much smaller building in Jackson and when their business grew to epic proportions, they built this new and beautiful new restaurant.
A faithful clientele followed them to their new venue and the vacationers did too! Everything was going peachy until a nasty kitchen fire put them out of commission for months!
Once again, they rebuilt and reopened and whalla... they came. In droves.
The food is great, the prices are reasonable, they are kid friendly, they are verrrry food allergy friendly (they are featured on my blog entitled, "You're Allergic To What?"
When I think of the best pizza or breakfast buffet's at a restaurant near me, Red Fox wins hands down!
Four Dining Rooms
Complete with 4 dining rooms, the Red Fox Bar and Grille offers a wide variety of dining atmospheres.
Each dining room has its' own unique design and style:
The Bar has a modern feel with 7 flat screen TV's
Choose the Ellis River Room - traditional feel plus you can enjoy a view of the gardens
The Iron Mountain dining room in the west section can accommodate up to 150 people and has barn-like casual decor
The Fox Den with a comfortable pub type atmosphere and a warm, cozy fireplace
I have to admit I've never had a bad meal at Red Fox and out of all the restaurants in North Conway I've eaten, I like their wood fired pizza the BEST!

Delaney's is a tradition in North Conway for locals and visitors alike, for great food, drinks and fun times since 1994! Delaney's Hole In The Wall is also a family owned and operated restaurant in North Conway. Anytime you stop by you're sure to see either Dick Delaney or or Mary Ellen Delaney.

OK, I'll admit it - I used to call Jalisco's "Mexican Wendy's."
Before you jump to conclusions about me, it was true!
There used to be a Wendy's in the building and they went out of business because North Conway is hard on chain restaurants. Locals and tourists alike would rather eat at a home grown restaurant!
Jalisco Mexican Fiesta moved in to the building and didn't change any of the decor so it looked like a Mexican Wendy's! 🤣
That was then, this is now and the decor is not Mexican and Wendy's is a faded memory.
The food is fantastic and I dare you to eat your entire dinner! I order the Jalisco Burrito and I have 3 more meals in the left-overs!
I got take-out there yesterday and there was a 30ish year old fellow sitting in one of the outdoor chairs rubbing his belly. He looked up at me and groaned, "Don't try to eat the whole dinner!"
Eat the whole dinner - I dare you!!
Ledgeview Grille is my favorite North Conway restaurant plus it's the BEST place to unwind in the entire Mount Washington Valley! The deck has the BEST view of any North Conway restaurant and is the locals favorite spot to relax, enjoy the view and have a bite to eat or sample one of their local brews!
The Ledgeview Grille is located on the second floor of the North Conway Country Clubhouse. The menu is typical pub style offerings. Prices are low, service is great and the view cannot be beat!
Dynamic views of the Moat Mountain Range, Mt. Washington’s snowy cap and the Golf Course enhance our Guest’s dining pleasure from both the dining room and deck.
The grille is open daily for breakfast and lunch plus you can enjoy an adult beverage until 7 PM. The Ledgeview Grille’ staff often hears customers remark that the NCCC serves the “Best Breakfast in the Valley”.
Offering a wide selection of food and beverage options, the menu is reasonably priced. Why not join us for a snack and a cocktail while you discuss the joys and challenges of playing golf at the Club?
The North Conway Country Club has a phenomenal staff! From our cooks, who prepare the best in tasty food choices to our wait-staff and bartenders who look forward to serving you, our goal is to assure you have an excellent dining experience at the Club.
