Great history spot, just OK restaurant

We were a fairly large (30+ people) group going for our year-end party. The setting, as many other reviewers remarked, is what you should go for, not the food. Dating from 1750, it is the oldest restaurant (as opposed to tavern) in Mercer County, and the 3rd largest in the country, with a great... read more

We had a late Saturday afternoon private family celebration with 50 guests in the bright front room. There was a beautiful back-up room in case more than 50 accepted our invitation. We offered a multi-course choice of beef, salmon, chicken or vegetarian, with wine, beer and champagne. The wait staff was accommodating and precise and friendly and the food was... More

We had our annual family Easter gathering here this year. It was our first visit and we will be back. Seated in the large room at we had a party of 11, but the noise level was such that conversation was easy. The food choices were well rounded and it was good.

The owner Tom is very solicitous of his customers. Food is good and the ambience is warm and cozy. Our professional group has had its dinner meetings several times at the Inn and Tom has always met our needs

Went to the Crabury Inn to celebrate the holidays with our friends. Had a very nice time! The food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. Never rushed. Nice timing on the food between courses. Even though the kitchen got my order wrong and I had to wait (until all my friends were done eating) Matt our waiter was really... More

Went for dinner on Monday night, was a little worried as it was very quiet. It worked to our advantage. Service was excellent and relaxed, was never rushed. It made a nice change as most places just want you in and out to turn over the tables. Food was very good and we ate a lot . Prices was reasonable.... More

Excellent food and service in historic landmark inn. Charming colonial decor. Wide selection of entrees & appetizers. Fish was excellently prepared. Dinner prices are very reasonable (mid $20's) with generous portions.

This restaurant has changed quite a bit over the past 40 years. The owner is a nice guy and friendly. He keeps his yellow Vette parked right out front. Their wait staff is professional dressing in formal attire. I would say the food went from being exquisite to adequate, but still good. I think they really only need a high... More
