- ScooterDined on 9/20/2014I was hoping for a better culinary experience. Apparently, there is a new chef.... let's just say we returned 2 dishes for saturation in dressing and the pasta was undercooked, pasty, and the ravioli stated "weird". But the other dishes were fine. We were seated in a side room to ourselves as if we were being punished. There was plenty of seating in the main restaurant. The chair cushions were lumpy. Our server was excellent and made the world of difference.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spot for outdoor diningChompDined on 9/18/2014A great experience as always. Dining outdoors here is an experience.Special Features:
- George would be proudPeterGDined on 9/13/2014George Washington would be proud to know that his namesake is on this beautiful, historic inn. Right next to Washington's Crossing Park on the Delaware, the inn has beautiful gardens for outdoor dining and is a popular venue for wedding receptions. The inside of this inn keeps in historic character, yet has been kept in museum-quality elegance.Special Features:
- Great mealGoodeathuntersDined on 9/11/2014After crab soup and salads, a dinner of pork chops and halibut were perfect choices for a special meal with old friends. Perfect ambiance in the Secret Garden, good service, and an overall great dining experience. Just a delightful meal in the perfect outdoor garden. An enhanced beer offering would improve the draw for those who like interesting and unique brews, but that is our only suggestion for improvement.Special Features:
- Perfect setting for celebrationsdaddyiDined on 9/5/2014We have never been disappointed by the Washington Crossing Inn. If you love an historic setting, gourmet food and great service, then try it out.Special Features:
- Good, but Congestedluv2ceibrateDined on 9/5/2014Food and service were excellent. We were seated in a room just off the kitchen. There was a wedding that evening and the steady stream traffic through our room for the first half of our meal made us feel like we were sitting in a hallway. Also, the seats are too low. I felt like I was having to reach up to eat my meal. We will return, but to sit in another room.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fine DiningPharmacDined on 8/1/2014We had an outside reservation to celebrate my wife's birthday; however it was pouring that evening.. so we had to settle for a dining table inside the main dining hall; the waitress was happy to accommodate us near a window overlooking the main street. We could not taste the Tapas menu... as it is restricted to outdoor setting.. we will need to go back for that.. However the salad and the starters were very good.. Overall a nice dining experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely setting for lunch!LocalFoodieVIPDined on 7/30/2014We went to celebrate a birthday in this lovely garden setting. Were able to get a table in garden after a short wait- food and prices reasonable for lunch- but lamb chops not medium as requested. Server ver gruff-made us feel we were in the way. Other servers inexperienced.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- destination inncalmceltDined on 7/26/2014Washington crossing inn is definitely a lovely day trip from central nj. the inn is beautifully decorated and maintained. One cn eat or have a drink in the flower-filled patio. The glass enclosed porch is also lovely. Food is delicious and nicely presented. Prices are moderate. It is a nice destinatipn in every seasonSpecial Features:

- get together for brunchtiara58Dined on 7/13/2014This is the 3rd year in a row that my husband and I have met my friend at Washington's Crossing Inn for brunch. We love the location, and the historic setting. The food is always very good, but this year we came near the end (1:30) so things were picked over-especially the dessert table. The 1st 2 years we came and had AnnaMarie for a server-she is wonderful. This year we had Jenn-she was about as friendly as a robot. We left her a $15 tip, and I think that was very generous compared to how she came across to us. My friend is not able to hear, and she had no patience for her. In spite of the service this time around, I would go back in a heart beat, any history lover would be happy there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great outdoors and innPlanktonDined on 7/12/2014The outdoor dining area and bar are excellent and the inn itself is great year-round.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beautiful but overpricedOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/12/2014Charming setting. Food was good but not great for the price.Special Features:
- edthemanDined on 7/11/2014My Friend and myself were a little early for reservation, so we stopped at the bar for a cocktail, then I went to tell the hostess that we were there & would be ready to be seated at her convenience. She said come see me when your ready as your table is ready. Waitress was friendly & had knowledge of entries. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner and stopped at the bar on our way out to listen to live music & have an after dinner drink. Overall a nice experienceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FineFineDined on 7/11/2014Our area isn't bursting with jaw dropping establishments that one wants to return to again and again, so this place was just fine as far as dinners go. I'm not sure I'll put it in my rotation for celebrations and fine-dining, but it was fine for our evening out.

- Awesome Brunchlove2brunchDined on 5/25/2014The brunch is extensive. Eating outdoors in the manicured garden made us feel special. After brunch, we visited Washington Crossing State Park across the street and Bowman's Tower. Our day was made great by starting it with this brunch and seeing an outdoor wedding take place.Special Features:
- Historical GemGreatFoodFanDined on 5/23/2014We've been dining here ever since we moved to the area 30 years ago. The owners have changed over the the years, but the food, service and atmosphere have endured.Special Features:
- NostalgiaVivaldiVIPDined on 5/18/2014The Washington Crossing Inn is such a beautiful Colonial-style building, it was like going back in time. The meal was elegant and delicious!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mothers Day LunchMaryDined on 5/10/2014The Washington Crossing Inn is always a nice change in our regular rotation of restaurants. Everything was lovely when we had lunch there for Mother Day. The weather was perfect, plenty of tables outside, attentive busboys. Our only problem was our waitress. There were four of us. Opening drink orders were two mimosas, tonic water, and one mojito. All drinks took a long time but the mojito was extra late holding up any mother's day toast there might have been. And then our party who ordered it said it wasn't made right. Lunch order also extremely slow and my husband's appetizer salad never came. Unfortunately those kinds of things stick with you. An inattentive waitress can make or break a memory.Special Features:
- Fine dining, artistic presentationJB777Dined on 5/5/2014It was quiet, elegant, fine service and the food was presented with flair one finds with fine cuisine. I held back the fifth star only because I thought the menu seemed a bit limited. It's not a high volume place so I get it; you can't expect a wide choice of entrees. Having said all that I really appreciated the chef's finesse with my scallops. Very nice and you don't get just that anywhere.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Waitress lacked...TriciaVIPDined on 5/4/2014When we were there last October, our waitress was fantastic! This visit not so good! Waitress (Jenn) was extremely inattentive to details and never brought rolls until we asked the Manager to bring them. "We ordered a loaf of garlic bread, didn't think you wanted rolls." I don't eat the garlic bread, my partner wanted the bread. Never cleaned crumbs off the table between courses (was done last time). I could go on, but...
- A great farewell thank youFamilygourmetDined on 5/2/2014I took my parents to say thank you for all of their support, and my two (single digit) children too. The Inn catered to their bail ride tastes and palettes with superbly prepared steaks, pork that was amazing and hand crafted broiled burgers for the children. My 8 year old daughter and I wolfed down the oysters to start and the shrimp cocktail was simply out of this world. Rounded off by great desserts everyone left thoroughly satisfied. Now, my kids are (very) well behaved which probably contributed to the smooth running of the evening but The Inn contributed too. They had a large reception that evening. Not one time was the excellent service and quality of cuisine compromised.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lunch in outdoor garden areami2wDined on 5/1/2014Washington Crossing Inn offers a wonderful three-course lunch in their outdoor garden patio for a very reasonable price. We also had the option of choosing from the regular menu. My friend and I took our mothers out to lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the setting. I had the watermelon salad which had a nice combination of greens, watermelon, and feta with a light dressing. I chose salmon for an entree, and the lime panne cotta for dessert. All were very good. Our server was very attentive. We will definitely return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Elegant and quietOrganic1Dined on 4/30/2014Elegant and quiet inside. Beautifully furnished. Outdoor is a wonderful experience.Special Features:

- What a wonderful find!Sug2021Dined on 4/19/2014We went to the Inn to celebrate a family birthday and early Easter! We had a wonderful dinner and will definitely return. Anya, our server definitely enhanced our experience. We had read about the Special Bread and it was fabulous! It is a must try! It was a chilly night, but next time would like to try eating outdoors in the beautiful garden area! Highly recommend!Special Features:
- Recommendsaxxman99Dined on 4/18/2014Had a very nice dinner at the Washington Crossing Inn. While we arrived early they were ready when we were. Food was great as was the service. Looking forward to going back.Special Features:
- Definitely a "Go To" RestaurantGastroGossipDined on 4/16/2014The restaurant has been renovated and looks quite elegant. We ate in the glassed in enclosure and it was lovely. The wait staff was most attentive, the bread was wonderful, and my lamb chops were sumptuous. My only negative comment is that my salad needed more of the interesting additions to the field greens. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his salmon. Al in all, this was the perfect place to celebrate our special occasion.Special Features:
- food was surprisingly great!LunchloverVIPDined on 4/12/2014a few nice surprises! lovely outdoor bar with heat lamps… although it gets breezy and there are smokers, so sit on the side closest to the street! Food was surprisingly good… we sat in the main dining room. Ambiance is a bit stark versus expectations… the porch could use some warmth. Go a bit later as we dined "early bird" and seemed to be among a lot of grey hair….Special Features:
- Lunch at Washington Crossing Inn...JRMartineDined on 4/12/2014Beautiful restaurant...historic surroundings...very well kept...outside dining areas including bar and patio seating looked delightful...wonderful landscaping for outside gatherings maintained to the tee!!!...our lunch selections included a salmon dish and a piled high prime rib sandwich...wish I had been able to try the desserts!!! Afternoon tea also available...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently goodChompDined on 4/7/2014I love the atmosphere, food and kind wait staff. It's a regular destination to meet freinds or have a quiet dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Well donegabbyDined on 4/4/2014Nice dinner a bit expensive but I expected that. Food was very good. The waitress was overly attentive which sometimes was annoying but better to be checking on you too much than to be annoyed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lunch better than brunch!PatWDined on 3/30/2014Lunch was better than brunch; lunch food was excellent; brunch was good. Brunch pick-up was not readily accessible, and the brunch crowd was energetic - birthdays, etc.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice, intimate brunchAcademicFactoryDined on 3/30/2014We just visited Washington Crossing Inn for brunch this past Sunday. I have been wanting to go there for a while. It did not disappoint. They had great brunch selections. The omelettes were great. I don't eat a lot of meat, but the bacon was good and everyone seemed to enjoy the prime rib from the carving station. My favorite part was the Salmon. Service was excellent! It gets crowded around 11 a.m. The only real disappointment was the dessert table. I had a little piece of carrot cake and a couple pastries. None of them really impressed me. Other people in our party had other cakes and were not impressed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Magnificent!JAStudiosVIPDined on 3/27/2014Thanks to open table, we found gold in our own backyard! An elegant affairSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food but priceykokosukiDined on 3/20/2014All aspects of our dinners were done to perfection. The main menu was generally in the $30 to $40 range with two or three exceptions. My wife ordered from the tavern menu which was more reasonable and again the food was excellent. We had the special bread appetizer which was superb. Bottom line, gourmet quality food, but priced accordingly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tea TimeNewbeaDined on 3/20/2014I was pleased with the welcoming and warm reception I was shown. This was a good experience for my first tea time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Always a wonderful mealPeggyDined on 3/7/2014Whether at the bar inside or out or dining in or in the garden, service, drinks and good are always spot on. Love this place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Better than the city!OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 3/1/2014My husband & I went to celebrate our anniversary. Our server greeted us with 2 glasses of champagne on the house. Very nice and unexpected! The table was great with no one on top of us. The food was excellent! Our sever was outstanding!! I only wish I knew her name. She went above and beyond to meet our every needs. We will make the Washington Crossing Inn one of our regular spots for dinner from now on.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
