Great local spot for us, and consistently fresh and creative food for brunch or dinner. Our server was just attentive enough, and personable too. The salads were great and large enough to share, and our crab mini tacos were stuffed with high-quality crabmeat. My BBQ shrimp was a very flavorful lighter entree, and the cheddar grits fine although a bit runny. My partner went with the new lamb shank enteee, and he was very pleased. We like to try new places but are happy to have in our backyard.

We have eaten at Caleb’s multiple times and this was our first disappointment. The food was not up to par in three of our four meals. The veggies were tasteless and the rice tasted very strange. Just hoping it was an off night on a Sunday?
Maybe Caleb was not cooking may be my guess.

The food is very good and the fact that this is a chef - owned restaurant is evident in the care taken in the quality and presentation of the meal. The portions are large, especially the salads. The bread is fabulous.

We chose Caleb's for our date night, and were very pleased overall. The owner seated us and was very friendly. The waiter was a little preoccupied with a larger group, but did a great job explaining the food options. The food was great. We will definitely come back.
A little loud, but that seems to be the norm these days. Great spot!!

Enjoyed the locals prefix menu, although We didn’t realize it was locals night when we went in. So my teenage boys were looking for burgers, but ended up with the turkey dinner which they loved!
My husband really enjoyed the pulled pork and I had the pork loin which was very moist. Loved it! The accompaniments of veggies and mashed were perfect.
We will be back, for sure, definitely for the Tuesday burger night.

We dined in on New Years Eve. As always it was MARVELOUS! The service was so friendly, the food was awesome and well presented, we felt we were being spoiled. And that is what you hope for! We were so happy to have been here. Happy New Year!

We had a super meal on New Year's Eve!! We arrived with low expectations, as dinning out on a major holiday can be rushed, crowded, poor service, and a meal that food is not the best example of the chef's talents. However, this night we were pleasantly surprised.

The restaurant was mobbed, but we had only a short wait to get our table. We were pleased that the tables were not so close together that we could hear each other and our very dear friends who joined us. Everyone enjoyed our dinners. The desserts were "just okay" but we were very full by then and I think the desserts may have been a bit more appetizing if we were not the last sitting on NYE:)

We enjoyed meeting the chief as we entered and the chocolate mint liquor he served us! Since we were just finishing dessert at around 11:30, we appreciated the staff welcoming us to stay until midnight and finish our champagne.

We will return when it's not a major holiday but thanks for a great experience on New Year's Eve!

Always excellent, however this was New Year's Eve and was a set menu. Lobster may not be what a restaurant should serve in this venue as it was over cooked, rubbery.

We felt a bit rushed but not too bad as they had 3 seatings and it was NYE. Many people like to take their time and enjoy their friends and not feel any type of push to finish.

It still was a good find for NYE.

The food and ambience was very good, but the service could have been more welcoming and friendly. I got the feeling that our server was just going through the motions and she didn't seem very happy. When we asked for a wine bucket for our wine, it seemed like she was put out by our request when we shouldn't even have had to ask.

Wow! What a treat. We reserved a table for 5 with my sister and brother in law, hoping that this restaurant would provide a good meal before our show at Bucks County Playhouse. Everything was perfect, from the greeting at the door to the visit from the owner Caleb at the end, thanking us for our patronage. Appetizers of seafood chowder and salads were quick and tasty, along with a nice basket of crusty bread. Entrees of duck, crab cakes, and pork chops were beautifully presented and enjoyed. My son had the smores hot chocolate as an end of meal treat and practically licked the inside of the mug. A BYO to boot, so the total cost of the evening was reasonable. Kudos to Caleb and staff. An evening to remember. We will be back.

Very good food and BYOB. A somewhat noisy restaurant, but the perfect atmosphere for our group of four. Crab tacos, tuna poke, and lobster rolls were all very good. Our entrees were the duck breast, salmon, and meatloaf. Everything that we ordered was delicious. Our server was great. This is our new go-to BYOB in Bucks.

Was probably a good place at one time. That time wasn’t last night. Simple food (burger and fish tacos) took a long time to arrive (restaurant was half full/6:30p) The fish in the tacos were cold as were the fries with the burger.

A very disappointing Christmas Eve dinner. We usually love it at Caleb's but have been burned twice now by Christmas Eve prixe fixe ($50) dinners. Maybe it's just the busy holiday meals that are hard to retain the usual standards. The soup with crab was bland with chunks of carrot and potato dominating the lackluster base. My prime rib was pretty to look at but lacked flavor and was tougher than the prime rib I had made at home several days prior. The mashed potatoes were to die for--excellent. Veggies just fine. My son's chicken dish was bland with a boring, glutinous sauce. The arugula salad was a massive pile of almost nothing but arugula and meager dressing. Other salads were good as was the dessert.
We still love Caleb's, and the Tuesday burger night is excellent, but we will never choose the extra expensive holiday meals again.

I have been eating at Caleb's for 4 years and most recently 12/16/17. Caleb, the owner and head chef was there and on my way out I told him that his food, presentation and service is so consistent every time I dine with him. It is remarkable that the quality is always first rate and the value is excellent. Caleb does this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The BYOB is always welcome and unlike other BYOBs the wine glasses are quality glass. We bring different friends and family to Caleb's and everyone has returned on their own. Looking forward to my next visit.

We went on a Monday which is locals night. The menu was limited, but with enough entrees to find something everyone enjoyed. The turkey with stuffing and potatoes was delicious. Service was excellent. The warm bread with dipping oil is unbelievable. It's worth trying Calebs for this alone. We will be back again to try selection from the regular menu.
