We drove over an hour to try their ribs on 'rib night'. The drive was worth it! Our meals were fantastic. I haven't had ribs better anywhere and the garlic mash potatoes were so tasty. The service we received was great. If there was any issue at all it was that we couldn't finish everything and had to take some... More

This was my first visit to the Crock and Block. Parking is a bit tricky. Cars are packed in pretty good. The front room seemed much more quiet than the back room where we were. I would recommend asking to be seated in front room if wanted a quieter meal. I had the Thanksgiving Special. I liked it. It was... More

My husband and I had visited this restaurant before, and I left displeased... but I thought I would give it another try. Now, I can say that I will NEVER go back. The restaurant was regularly busy, and our server seemed a little frustrated, but she did give us very good service. HOWEVER..... the food was absolutely terrible. Our appetizer... More

We've been there many times over the years. About a year ago, we went for the usual weinerschnitzel dinner. It was a complete disaster. After a LONG wait, it at last arrived. We both had to return it as everything was cold. It came back fairly fast, no doubt they "nuked" it. I swore it would be the last visit.... More

Atmosphere reminds me of an old, dark, German restaurant. Could use a refresh, or at least removal of carpeting. Meals are served with fresh rolls. Portions are large. Food is hot and mostly enjoyable. Plan to have leftovers to take home! Service is very prompt and pretty friendly. It's not fancy but the extensive menu and large portions, combined with... More

Great value for the money. The staff is always super nice. They always have different specials. Love the steak and lobster special. Last time they had deep fried zucchini as an appetizer.... you should add that to the regular menu it was so very good. The vegetable side changes every time I come, last time it was zucchini and carrots... More

Had dinner with family here. Price was too good to be true. Felt sick after eating here, quality of the food was very poor. I do not recommend this place. I felt like I was eating at an old age home.

Decor reminded me of an English pub. Service was slow. Hugh portions of food. We ordered "fish and chips" and got 3 sizable pieces. We also ordered a beef and cheese open faced sandwich and the beef was dry. Overall it was an interesting place for lunch but I would probably try another place to eat.

Went there on my birthday. Food was burned. Service was atrocious. Put up with slow service for two hours and awful food. We didn't complain once, but when we went to pay, we informed the staff how awful the service and food was and we were summarily ignored. They just didn't care. Have NEVER had such a disgusting dining experience... More
