Our server Hillary was very sweet, but slow to return back a few times to check on us. Usually when everyone in a party has an empty beverage and empty plates, it may be the time to check back in with them, not 15 minutes later or when someone from the table needs to flag them for assistance.

This was our second time dining at Fox Creek. Everything was fine except the temperature. It was chilly. The manager did turn up the heat when asked but it didn't last.

Food, drinks and service were excellent! I especially enjoyed the fish and chips. Really fresh haddock and plenty of it! Everyone enjoyed their dishes.
We all felt very safe eating in during covid. Very clean and well maintained.

The chicken Cesar wrap tasted like something got burnt in the grill. My daughters hamburger was so plain and tasted burnt. The waitress could of came around a bit more especially how slow it was in there. The drinks were great.

We went for Saturday Brunch. There was one other group (3) there when we arrived. The service was slow in acknowledging we had arrived, bringing coffee and taking our order. The food was excellent. We will return to try the dinner menu.

Food, service, overall experience was excellent. Server did not know much about beverage choices, consider updating staff on beer selections. Not a big deal. Fox Creek quickly becoming one of my favorite dining spots.

We ate everything, starting with an appetizer the lobster dip delicious. Then a mighty tasty burger cooked perfectly I also had two beers on tap that where very fresh tasting. We topped off dinner with dessert which consisted of chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream A decadent delight.We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the service was excellent too.

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.

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.
