“Terrible”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We got the fish and chips, and the #6 burger. The bacon was pre cooked, mushrooms from a can, and the 3 tomatoes were all end cuts. The breading on the fish was either really thick or it had none at all. They used to have good food but we will not be eating there again.

“Some of the food is really good, some is average”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The fried clams are just average, but the "specials" are pretty good, and are offered at very good prices.

This was the first time I've eaten at the Crossbow Inn, and I plan on returning. The Knight's salad is large, and could make a decent meal in itself.

The menu is extensive and features a lot of "old school" menu items such as frog legs, escargot, and other items you don't see in modern resturant menus.

The exterior of the restaurant is quite plain, and easy to pass by, but the interior is cozy and inviting with medieval decor. Behind the bar and in the corners, are large 50"+ flatscreen TVs, so the sportsfans will be happy here.

I've never seen better drink service at any other restaurant. Your drinks will be quickly refreshed.

“Great Local Treasure”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We asked at the hotel for some ideas on where the locals go to eat seafood. There were several suggestions but looks like we chose wisely by coming here. We chose the seafood special for the day which included the best clams, shrimp, haddock and perch I have had in a long time. They have a great daily special which makes it hard to chose from the menu which also has many items to pick from, not just seafood. The portions were very generous and affordable. The only down side is we had to wait in line ( #4 on a Tuesday evening!) but we were at our table within 10-15 minutes. We will be back when in the area again.
