“Used to be a favorite but no longer”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

My wife and I have been going to Inn of the Hawke for 20 years and are disappointed that the quality of the food and the level of service the past 2 years has declined. My favorite choice for dinner was the fish and chips. Unfortunately, the last few times I've order the portion were small--there was very little fish mostly batter. The service has also declined, it used to be attentive and efficient not so anymore. After being seated expect to wait. Also, make sure you have everything you need because after your meal arrives you will not see your waitress again. We've been going there so long that we will not stop. However, our expectation of consistently good food and service has disappeared.Hopefully, this and other unsatisfied reviews from customers will help the owners. I look forward to revising this review--this should be a very good - excellent restaurant.

“Great family place-really good with kids.”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Sitting outside is really nice. It's walled in garden setting with large trees, just beautiful. The food is very good. Nice selection, salads, burgers, some ethnic items, and great beer.

“The best beer bar in Lambertville”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

One of the things you deal with in Lambertville is watching the exodus of tourists walk & drive across the river to New Hope after 5pm. However, there are some good beer bars in Lambertville, you just have to know how to find them. The Inn of the Hawke is one of the secrets, toward the south end of town. It has Dogfish Head 60-Minute on tap (the only location in the city to boast that in my experiences) as well as some other refreshing independent craft beers. The food is also top notch. Best turkey burger I've ever had and some slammin' soft chips on the side. The owners are nice, they should probably be the bartenders too, because they have more personality than the current staff. The Lambertville Station has some good beers & food too, but it's more pricey than this place. Best beer bar in Lambertville hands down.

“In Sad Decline”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

A once great destination for locals and tourists alike, this business has hit the skids. The bartender makes you feel unwelcome, and no amount of generous tip will change her attitude ( we've tried). The drinks are skimpy (real skimpy) and overpriced. Fortunately, there are plenty of better places in town and in New Hope. Pick one instead...
