Stopped in for Lunch. Excellent service and food. Soup was great. So were the salads. Carrot cake is to die for. Day before Thanksgiving and they were busy with Carry outs. I can see why. Outstanding. Will be back next time through.

The chicken pot pies to go...what a great way to have gourmet home cooking from your own oven! And without the tedium and mess. Wonderful ingredients make for a farm fresh meal. And stopping by to chat with the patrons is always a treat in itself. Highly recommended.

My wife and I ate lunch here in early October 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. I was able to meet the chef who is also the owner and learned about his Irish upbringing as well as the various places around the world where he has developed and honed his cooking skills.... More

Fresh sandwiches with a gourmet twist. Small and cozy restaurant. You probably will have to wait. Great service. Large portions. The deserts looked great, however we were too full to try.

We arrived on Monday and he was closed but the owner just happened to be walking out the door. He asked if we would come back the next day and then asked what we would like. He made us an exquisite quiche. The crust had a light buttery flavor like the edge of the best biscuit you have have let... More

Its a small restaurant - you may have to wait a minute or two but... it is very worth it - went for lunch on a Saturday because a local had recommended it and was happy that I did! The roast beef sandwich with blue cheese cole slaw was excellent! Save room for dessert (especially the coconut cream pie -... More

Eat Crow is a small restaurant and was very busy when we arrived. Service was somewhat slow but well worth the wait. The egg salad, obviously made at the restaurant, was delicious. The roast beef sandwich, served with blue cheese cole slaw and tomato slices, was out of the ordinary and excellent. The deserts looked great but we were too... More

To call this a deli is a misnomer . . . the sandwiches and salads are definitely gourmet . . . the desserts to die for . . . all homemade right there. We haven't tried the specialty gourmet dinners that they offer about once a month . . . but I hear they are the same outstanding meal as... More

ok, so the location isn't all that great. It's at the end of a small strip building that also houses the state police for this area and a garage door company. But once inside, you forget about that. Inside the Eat Crow are several cozy tables, and one community table. There is a refrigerated case with the pies they baked... More
