The outdoor area and grounds need spicing up. I find the menu limited. The food is ok. Service has always been good.
Great service along really good brunch food and drinks. Will be going back!
Friendly staff, delicious food and drinks.
I was very disappointed that clam chowder and onion soup have been taken off the menu. For a summer menu, these are great and they have been my past favorites. I hope you bring them back!
App, entree, cocktail, dessert all very good.
Service was outstanding. Very accomodating & friendly.
A newcomers to Ipswich, we were pleased to find the Fox Creek Tavern. Our 2nd fabulous meal there.
Met brother there for lunch. Ended up with two aps and two drafts each. Irish Nachos are outstanding and huge. Bang bang shrimp very good, too.
My wife & I enjoyed every minute of our experience. We only partake in outside dining and we really enjoy the Creek’s patio. We consistently get excellent service, this time was no exception. Our server Liz was superb - very friendly, prepared & extremely attentive. She told us about the specials and even knew there was a prime rib end-cut available when I inquired. Cecelia the manager came by to say hello. That was a pleasant surprise and it was great meeting her. We’ll be back very soon!
Great place. Good food. Could have more white wines as a selection.
Chad, our server, was very pleasant and provided good service. Our food was very good, nice variety of menu items. We were outside, tables well spaced.
The food wasn't cooked properly. Service was slow. Never going back again.
We had a great lunch sitting outside last Saturday! Was our first time there, everything was delicious from the drinks to the scallops in Maple syrup with crumbled bacon on top of them! My friend got the haddock dinner, I got the steak tips dinner. Everything was truly phenomenal. We will be back soon
Fox Creek has a varied menu with plenty of comfort food and local favorites.
Definitely my new spot. Good prices great food and variety
Overall, good food. The service was great. It was pretty quiet when we went on a Monday night. Will be back!
Went for brunch, was good but could have been better. Eggs were over cooked and our server didn’t inform us there were specials, which would have tried. The bacon was yummy and there were lots of cocktails to choose from.
Excellent breakfast. Food was delicious. Bloody Mary...,oh my, so good.
My mother in laws birthday. Food was excellent and service was great.
Very noisy this time with kids but that’s ok! Mac n cheese was watery this time and not hot..but again, still good! Will always be back!!
Alexis was an excellent server. My prime rib end cut was delicious. My wife enjoyed her fish tacos. We both enjoyed the charcuterie board. Ambiance was relaxing and comfortable.
Went there for a birthday lunch, food was very good, enjoyed eating in the front front dining room. Our server James was outstanding - very personable and friendly without being overbearing.
Food was very good. The atmosphere was cozy and unique.
4/11/21 reservation was for 1 pm and seated at 1 pm. After choosing selections off of the brunch menu was informed that those selections were not available after 12:45 pm as the kitchen stopped serving brunch at that time. Very disappointed to be informed that even though brunch was advertised until 1 pm the practice is to stop serving at 12:45 pm . With that information prior to arrival we may have selected another location for brunch!
Went for Sunday brunch w/ a reservation. The space is big and nicely decorated.
Had the chicken and waffles special and really enjoyed the style of waffle and the red pepper flakes and honey on it.
Good bloody Mary and a "desert" peanut butter bourbon and chocolate liquor drink.
Service was fast and friendly.
There were a couple large parties that were loud (reasonable level), but it would have been nice to have some background music playing to wash them out a bit.
We'll definitely be back and recommend to others.
The staff at Fox Creek is very friendly. The food was excellent and the service was respectable.
We made a reservation through open table for 730. Arrived and was told it would be a few minutes while they cleaned off the table, which was no problem. However, the hostess was a bit short as she seemed like she couldn’t be bothered. We also waited an additional 20 minutes to be seated (not just the “few” as she suggested). While we were waiting, we could see an empty table that was just sitting there cleaned the whole time. We joked, “our luck we’ll be sat at this table that we’ve been staring at”. And don’t you know, we got sat at that very table. Instead of lying and saying the table was being bussed, I would’ve preferred some transparency to either say, we are understaffed and/or running behind tonight. It was clear the whole establishment is still finding its footing of running smoothly. Food was pretty good, service was a bit slow, but overall our waitress was fantastic. Not running back, though, that’s for sure!
Outside seating was amazing. Not near others, comfortable. Try to be nearer the fire if it is cool out! Food was delicious. Could have used some good bread to go with it. Wine was very good. Excellent restaurant.
Made a 5 pm reservation online and also called to confirm it. Got an email confirming it. Got there at 5 table not ready. Then was told I didn’t make a reservation for outside. Showed the email confirming it. At 5:40 was then told the couple at my reserved table was getting the bill and would be leaving. At 5:50 I spoke with the hostess (who was very very nice ) and said are these people leaving? My reservation was at 5pm and now it’s 5:50pm. She left to speak with the manager and their reply was they could seat us inside but we need to leave at 6:30!!!! Uhhhh how in the heck do we sit at 6 pm and leave by 6:30 pm?? Miraculously the outdoor table became available. Waiter was nice and attentive however it would have been really nice if the RESTAURANT MANAGER came over to apologize for our wait. I’ve been in restaurant management and if you run your dining by reservation only then the MANAGER should have told the other couple of the 90 minute time allotted and that they needed to leave for the other reservation. The MANAGER should have also gave us something if anything an apology.
Food was great drinks were good hostess was really nice as was our waiter. Don’t know if I will go back there.
Chad was an excellent server! No booze in very expensive martini filled with sugar. Steak tips had a strange taste...and mashed potatoes were old. Steak tips were more than $20! Onion rings were good. Pico on tacos was good.
we had waited an hour even though we put in a reservation. We saw other groups of 4 seated before us. There seemed to be no priority to get us seated. They wait staff was pleasant about it, They brought a drink of water. No free App, no free drink.
The place was good. Our waiter Chad was very attentive.
The only downside was the long wait and seeing others get seated before us.
Christina A. was our server, and she was amazing! My daughter felt so special in the table with the big leather chairs. I got the cast iron seafood Alfredo, and my daughter got the fish and chips, both meals were excellent! I will definitely be back!
Always good! The pretzel appetizers are excellent!
4 of us found the Risotto gummy, big disappointment. Pan seared salmon was delicious. COVID protocols followed as advertised. Waitress was great, very accommodating for our group of 6 in the back room. Wash windows/ glass on fireplace- late afternoon sun shines through front windows making smudges highly visible. Would go back and recommend.
Bartender was fantastic. Made suggestions and the meal was excellent.
Great meal - awesome appetizer - we had the lobster dip and it was full of lobster - no need to fight over the lobster on this one! Chicken tacos were amazing - highly recommend - oh, don't forget the sweet potato fries - yum!
From beginning to end, our table of four had an excellent experience. We will be back for another visit soon.
Brunch menu pleased everyone in our party. Food was excellent and portions were more than adequate. Waitress was pleasant and efficient. We will be back .
It was Amanda's first night by herself and she provided excellent service.
Nice staff, good food and relaxed ambience.
