Great Service and some of the best food in the area!! Both Tim and Lori are great at their jobs and make you feel like family!!! It's smal and quaint but I have been going there for years and have never had a bad meal!!

Crocker House is not on the way to anywhere, but worth the five miles or so down a very rural road to find it. Dependably good food and great ambiance. Not inexpensive, but not eye-watering either. By some standards the service is often only "acceptable," but this might be by design since I think they pride themselves on not hurrying... More

Thank you for your review, Roger! You're absolutely spot on; the Crocker House is not on the way to anywhere; we do enjoy a very rural location (five miles off Route 1 down the Point Road). But so glad you've found the restaurant to be "dependably good" with "great ambiance". You're absolutely correct in your observation about the service: our... More

Very small place and menu, but the food is AMAZING. It's fine dinning and expensive but WELL worth it.

We travel to Hancock at least 4 times per year and never miss dining at The Crocker House. The food is consistently so good! The soft shell crab (when in season) is some of the best I've had and you can't go wrong with their delicious filet or the seafood pasta! Portions are generous so bring your appetite!

Thank you so very much! We greatly appreciate that you make it a point to dine at The Crocker House when you visit our neck of the woods. Happy to hear you were able to get the soft-shelled crabs; they're a very special item on the menu! Best wishes and thank you again! More

The Crocker House is a wonderful and reliably excellent "tradition" in Down East Maine. Each of the dining rooms is small enough to be comfortably cozy whether you are out to dine as a couple or you need one of the rooms for a private party. Reservations are a must. The front parlor is perfect for a glass of wine... More

Thank you for your very kind review, Arthur! We appreciate your mentioning that the restaurant quality is consistent. Our menu hasn't varied much over the years because most of our guests seem to like knowing they can return to the Inn, order the same entree and that it will be just as they remembered. Thank you for making The Crocker... More

Oh dear... so glad you thought the food was "great" but terribly sorry to hear you felt our service was "terrible"! Catered dinners such as the one you attended are quite unique. Entrees are pre-ordered and consequently, a wait person (plus the bartender, if necessary) is able to serve the dinners as quickly as they are plated in the kitchen.... More

Thank you, Kevin! The Crocker House is indeed "way off the beaten path" (almost 5 miles down the Point Road). So glad you felt it was worth the time and the price.Thank you for helping us launch our 36th season in business. Best wishes. More

I loved the oyster appetizer. My choice of entree was not the best choice for me. The steaks and salmon ordered by others in our party were excellent with a lovely chocolate mousse cake topped with whipped cream for dessert. Yummy!
