I had crab cakes and a caesar salad, portion size was plentiful and delish! My husband had a burger and fries that he thoroughly enjoyed. We had a coupon that we redeemed which gave us 10% off our bill and we could pick another table to get the same. Love the pay it forward idea! Had eaten here in December. Only complaint was no cream or 1/2 & 1/2 for coffee-don't like milk in our coffee. Don't know if they ran out of cream, but would highly recommend using cream.

We added another person last minute and the hostess graciously went through reservations to accomodate. Was very appreciative given all the regulations restaurants now have to follow. Food was great and atmosphere was great. My only negative comment is it was very cold in tavern area.

Been here a few times and food has been okay. This time around had steak tips but 3 of 4 pieces were from round cut tough and chewy can't pass those off as tips. Wife's prime rib sandwich was fatty and gristle just not good. Easier to let it go but suffice to say will find another more consistent place to spend our money.

The staff here are lovely and the ambience is great. They have taken all the necessary COVID measures and the tables are greatly spaced for privacy. We love sitting in the big comfy arm chairs. The food is consistent and the service is great.

All was good but a little disappointed with our waitress we left a very large tip snd thought she would be a little more appreciative but all in all it was good. I also left a message about a glove I lost but I never heard back.

We love Fox Creek and go almost every weekend for brunch! Most of our friends have gone on our recommendation. How can you resist the Absolute Bloody Mess?! My fav is the Irish omelette. Delicious!

The food was just ok. Prime rib medium rare tasted more like a roast beef. Chicken bruschetta was cold they obviously don't make the chicken to order

Our second visit to Fox Creek Tavern, and as good as the first. Of course there is a pandemic going on, so the restaurant was socially distanced and quiet.

The food was very good, Gloucester Haddock, and seasonal veggies excellent and my husband's burger very good.

The atmosphere is very soothing, our server very accommodating.

Stuffed French toast was amazing. Mimosas where really good. I also go the avocado toast the only thing I would of liked was for the bread to be toasted. I thought it was very weird that I got untoasted bread.

This is our fourth time coming here and this was the first time the food was awful. I got the steak special, it was tough, chewy, and mostly horrible. I hope it was just this one time.

The food was SUPERB. We could not have been more pleased with the meal. The reservation went smooth (reserved online). We ended up at a table near the door - bit drafty, but still we were happy to get in. I am most pleased with the efforts they took in room construction & furnishings to keep the sound level in check. It worked, even though the place was at capacity the noise level was not excessive.

My girlfriend and I went to Fox Creek Tavern for dinner tonight. For an app we ordered the “Irish nachos” (Fried potatoes topped with corn beef and tons of cheese and some sort of aoli) For an entree I got the NY sirloin over a mushroom risotto with asparagus. My gf got the fish and chips. From the apps to the entrees everything was delicious! For dessert we ordered a pumpkin spice martini and a drunken Reese’s martini. Our waitress Ali was amazing and super attentive and made sure our drinks were always full. We will definitely be back in the near future!! We highly recommend this place for date night or just a casual night out!
