Started off great! Was sat promptly, waitress was helpful and knowledgeable about beers my husband was choosing from. Food was excellent! Half way through our meal the waitress seemed off. She didn’t come to our table much we put our empty drinks at end of table as a signal, she asked if we wanted more we said yes but never received them. I caught her eye about 10 minutes later and asked for a drink again my husband asked to cancel his beer and get a coke. He got his coke ( it was flat not waitress’s fault) I never got my drink. End of meal we put food plates at end of table and I asked to cancel my drink. She said oh you ordered a

We had a lovely lunch outside yesterday. Our server (I didn’t catch his name)) but he was very pleasant and attentive! My baked haddock was delicious and I tasted my son’s steak tips and they were delicious! Be back again soon!

Always great food and great service, we were actually speaking about how we'd never had a bad experience at Fox Creek when we went this weekend. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for good food, good drinks, and a good time.

Food and service were good. The decore was nice and the space was clean. Unfortunately there was a group next to us that was obnoxiously loud. It detracted from our dining experience.

The seafood Alfredo was amazing! But the Irish nachos were NOT it. The seating was a bit uncomfortable and we were rushing to leave. Overall wait time was good, and waitress was very friendly and welcoming.

Food is consistently good but the service was way off last night...I guess it is the wait staff shortage we have experienced elsewhere.

We went here when it first changed from EnFuego to FCT. We had 3 bad experiences in a row. We decided to give it a try because we were waiting on someone at the HS across the street. The food was outstanding! Could not believe how good it was, service was excellent as well.

Great food,great prices! The staff service was honestly not the best service I've had. I work in the food industry and if my boss had seen all of their employees standing around by the TV, talking, checking their phones while tables needed to be cleaned and customers were waiting for checks, they would NOT be happy.

Overall just ok. I had seen a few posts on social media and decided to make a day trip there from Reading. The lobster dip was good but the entrees were just ok, I got the clam flatbread and my husband the sliders. The farmer Palmer was good but the blackberry lemonade was not, I actually sent it back :(. Our server was nice but not very attentive but I know she has tables inside and outside so I'm assuming she was busy which I totally understand. Won't be in a rush to return but also won't completely write it off either.

Easy to get a reservation for a 1pm Saturday lunch with only 30min notice. We chose outside on the patio. Service was prompt and attentive. All food came as ordered.

Everyone enjoyed their meal (sandwiches, burger, fish tacos).

We were able to linger over coffee which was appreciated since we had not seen our friends for quite awhile.

Plenty of parking.

As usual, Liz was an excellent server! Very friendly and attentive. Thank you for letting us have the spinach artichoke dip in a crock with chips, instead of bread bowl. We really enjoyed our meals & cold drinks. See you soon!

Two words: Creamsicle Martini - 'nough said.

Seriously, this place is great! The prices are solid for the fantastic food and drinks you get and they have some really interesting twists on New England favorites. We sat inside, which had a nice eclectic space, but outside looked great - would love to try that side next time!

I always want to give fox creek another try because usually the experience is good. This time I just didn’t understand something. I asked the waitress if they could ask the kitchen to make bang bang shrimp tacos which has been on the specials. Her imediate response was no. We don’t have the stuff to make those. I proceeded to say you have the shrimp on the menu and two different tacos items on the menu. I understand if the kitchen dosent want to do it but please humor me. The tables were empty at 5:45. Well I don’t think she liked how I answered because it took her while to return to take our order. Me and my 6 year old daughter waiting for awhile. Also they really need to ask if people are part of the rewards program.
