Lunch with a Friend

Had a great lunch here last week. Enjoyed the food and our server was great. We had a few requests and she was very accommodating.

The charbroiled chicken, real anchovies and authentic Ceasar dressing made this the best Ceasar dressing I've ever had. Sat by the fireplace on a cold snowy day- perfect lunch!

The drinks are O.K. They do have specials. The food on the other hand….. dang. I had a greasy version of an Oyster Poorboy. Not good. My wife had seafood as well. A waste of good seafood.

Went there last night to watch MNF with the family. Overall, the atmosphere was decent but was extremely surprised at how good the food was. I order fish and chips and my wife got the artichoke chicken pizza, both were outstanding. Highly recommend.

Best menu and most consistent execution. I've tried rib eye steak, clam linguine, and the more quick and simple meals: clam chowder bread bowl, buffalo wings, and mushroom Swiss burger. Full bar and plenty of beer taps too. Versatile dining atmosphere for families and big screens for sports. The staff is friendly and efficient. My favorite downtown restaurant

enjoyed the diversity of drinks, appetizers, sandwiches, and entrees. It appeals to a large group to accommodate such a wide range of tastes. Service is attentive from arrival to check. Great atmosphere, choose either lively lounge area with TV or family dining room. Pizza is best around

Nothing fancy but the service was great and we enjoyed oysters (a little pricey) and a delicious crab/shrimp pizza!!

Some tables on the sidewalk, some outside with a lake view and many more inside. My pulled pork was good, but my wife's burger was bland. There was a football game on the TVs and it was very noisy. Service was slow. Visited at lunch on Sunday.

Lunch so much better than expected. Had to get a quick bite on way to the airport. Local bar owner suggested Crickets. Upon entering was underwhelmed by the inside but after being cheerfully greeted and served we were quite impressed with the quality of the food. I ordered sliders and hubby ordered a chicken sandwich. Both were really excellent. Meat... More

Stayed in the area for a long weekend and had stopped here many times for drinks. After spending the entire afternoon at the lake and not wanting to change clothes and freshen up we decided to swing in to Crickets for dinner since it was casual dining. The wait staff was great as it had been every time we stopped.... More
