Last night I attended a Chamber of Commerce Mixer on Gaffney's Patio. This has always been one of my favorite Chamber events. Last year's mixer was just two days after I began my gluten free lifestyle. It was my first restaurant visit so it's where my "question-asking" began. They serve great chicken wings (dedicated fryer). Last year there was no gluten-free beer available. Now of course there is but it has never been available at Gaffney's. I was an early arrival to the mixer so I introduced myself to the owner John Baker. I let him know that I attempted to order a beer they didn't carry. I explained Red Bridge Beer to him. He was interested to hear about it and said he'd order a case with his next order. He then picked up his cell phone and said he'd better order it before he forgot. As I stood next to him he placed the call to his distributor, ordering three cases. It will be available beginning tonight! You can bet I will be there enjoying their patio and a Red Bridge! Thank You, John!
Gaffney's is located at 16 Caroline Street on the corner of Putnam. Music on the patio Thursday thru Sunday nights. Enjoy!

It's nice to see restauranteurs that respond to their customers' needs.

i have a few friends who used to work at gaffney's and they brought me back to the kitchen, I love the bar and the food and always have but im not sure i will ever eat anything that comes from that kitchen ever again after seeing it, its infested with flies, the walls and pots are so dirty and noone cleans up anything, i actually saw them taking used forks wiping them off and reusing them for other customers.. soo gross!!!
