We visited this place with as group of six on a weekend night, and were a bit disappointed by what what it had to offer. The service was very slow, and once they finally got into gear, they were rushing us because of the kitchen staff wanting to close. The food itself was pretty good, but the atmosphere was a... More

We wanted to pause from walking around "downtown" Waco - (don't spend too much time doing that ... but that is another story ...) - We picked this property at random. It was rather early - around 5:30PM and there were not many folks in the place. The staff was nice, the beer and gin & tonic were cold and... More

We were passing through on our way home from thanksgiving break. We stopped in Waco for the night and wanted to have some dinner, watch some football and have some beer. This was a good place for the worlds largest beer selection!! However, we were unimpressed by the food and waiter service. Our food was just okay. Mine was greasy... More

Really great selection of beer on tap and all reasonably priced. The burgers were really tasty and the smoked ketchup was fantastic on the onion rings. We left feeling completely sated and Brandon our server was really friendly and helpful.

The fried avocado tacos are spectacular. The wedge salad with blew cheese was mediocre at best. The other food that people received was all right. The reason for the bad rating was that we arrived at 5:45 pm and there were very few people here. They were not busy. At 6.35 we still did not have our food. The waiter... More

Hamburgers are great! If you are into the brew you will have a lot of choices. Wait staff very friendly.

Loved the choice of beers, too many for one visit. Meals were very nice, Caesar salad could have had some anchovies, but you can't have everything.

The burgers are great! Big bar area and lots of space and seating. We had salads and burgers. We came twice for lunch and once for dinner. Each time was great. The staff was also friendly and professional.

Server had no knowledge of the menu (food or beer), a poor attitude, and a primary response of "can't", as in "we can't do that". Who ever heard of a restaurant NOT having any side dishes other than fries, fries, and fries (not even a side salad)....? I will certainly not return, and recommend others stay away.....unless all you're looking... More

Hi there, we're really bummed to read your review and would like the opportunity to make things right. Although we do offer much more than fries (including a wedge side salad) to accompany our entrées, it sounds like we dropped the ball on service and we're concerned that you left our restaurant disappointed. Please email us at cricketssocial(at)gmail(dot)com so we... More
