Everything was AWESOME

Stopped at Crickets Grill & Drafthouse and we fell in love with the food. Had fried pickles that were thick sliced and lightly battered. With the buffalo ranch dipping...they were great. Wife had the bacon cheddar burger which was perfect. It had cheddar running out the sides! We shared a double... read more

Overall the ambiance and the feel of the restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. The french fries are delicious - and as someone who is a health nut and never eats fries, this is a huge compliment. My husband said his burger was a little on the greasy side but my chicken sandwich was very good. Will probably... More

The first thing I always notice at Cricket's is the smell. It always reminds me of a proper pub, and in my book that alone makes it worth a visit. The food is pretty good, but I'm also not sure what you would really expect. I'm not much of a beer drinker, but the draft list is extensive and the... More

They had more than 80 beers on tap, the food was great as we ate here more than once due to the location. Service was great and Adam stands out as one of the nicest bartenders i have met.

Three of us stopped for lunch. The place was not busy so we got seated immediately and were asked for our drink order. We ordered two mushroom Swiss burgers, a Caesar's salad and some fires to share. On both burgers we asked to hold the mayo. Everything came out reasonably quickly. The burgers were great - just what we expected... More

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

This a cool place to unwind, have a few drinks and get a little pool or shuffle board in. Friendly and helpful staff!
