Crest Tavern was good

Had shucked clams that tasted salty and fresh, Also had the roast pork sandwich with spinach and provolone cheese. Outstanding.

The place has a very small bar which most locals visit. The people who work there are rude and the service is so so. We go here for the food, take out mostly just so we don't have to deal with the service. Quizzo is fun but they draw it out so slow - Big Daddy Graham you need to... More

The two of us ordered cheesesteaks, fries and sodas. At first the service was good. The steaks came and were mostly lettuce/tomato. Even if we combined the meat on one half of the roll, it still would have been a very lean sandwich. The soda were $2 each and not that large, so we needed refills. In this day and... More

My family decided last minute that we wanted to go out to eat, so after a quick search we headed straight for the tavern. Because we didn't have a reservation we had to wait 45 minutes, but it was well worth it. I would have waited 2 hours to eat at the place! We were very pleasantly surprised by the... More

Stopped in here with a large group of people and split up into two tables. The place was clean and pretty crowded, service was pretty fast and friendly. The food was average bar food, nothing special but it gets the job done. It seemed like more of a local place but there were still a fair amount of tourists.

If you're a local you probably love it. If you want standard nothing special about it pub food, fine to go. If it's walking distance and you want a beer it's fine. It's nothing special. And the people are RUDE. Generally Unhappy, and they take it out on you. I've been here many many times with family who like going... More

Thanks for your feedback and for notifying us of this incident, Stacey. There is certainly no excuse for rude behavior and we are sorry that your grandfather felt disrespected or belittled in any way as that was not our intention. We hope that you come back and give us another chance, especially since your family have been loyal, returning customers.... More
