Interesting Restaurant - Food was Good

The wait staff was not overly attentive. Several times our water glasses needed refilled and the waiter walked by our table several times without acknowledging it.

Went there for an anniversary dinner. Service was great, we ordered oysters on half shell. For being an oyster bar they were not very fresh. Also husband ordered the steak, very tuff and rubbery for being rare. The chief chose more raw then rare. Have to say would not go back for dinner. Although the clam and linguine was good.

Last night, my wife and I had dinner at Cricket's. My wife told me she hadn't eaten there for over 20 years and I've never eaten there. Upon walk in, my first impression was that of the decor that had lots of toys and artifacts from years gone by all over the walls and hanging off the ceiling making the... More

We were seated literally for an hour before our food arrived but it was excellent. The linguini with clams was delicious with lots of large juicy clams. The fish tacos were very good as were the oysters. Not sure if the slow service was a Saturday night issue or not but overall it was a very positive dining experience.

Their prices are good for the downtown area, very nice serving size, good service. I had 2 large fish taco's, with good toppings, (I would of... More

The clam chowder we started with was above average and the Shrimp and Crab pizza was unusual and very good. The service was excellent. I want to commend our server who had to put up with a nasty, rude old man in the table next to ours. I wish I could remember her name.

This rating is based on our years-long and thorough search for a good plate of nachos... You know, real shredded cheese, even distribution of toppings, tasty salsa. Crickets is the only place that does it. Amazing that no one else can perform on such basic bar food.

Very nice staff and good stiff drinks! I had the turkey club sandwich with fries...and it was delicious!! Something about those fries! Lots of knick knacks (sp?) to observe when waiting for food. Can't wait to come back!

Had lunch at Cricket's with some friends. I had the salmon sandwich which was really good. A really good portion of Salmon especially for a sandwich. Friends had the fish and chips and said it was really good. The oysters were also tasty. It's a much larger place than look like from outside. The waitress was friendly. The one small... More
