The food was very good. Service was slow but that's expected during these times.
Def worth the wait. Burgers and pizza here are excellent!

I love the Cranford Hotel. I had ordered the Ruben Sandwich and it was better than I remember. The sandwich came out hot and the French Fries were great. The restaurant had changed fewer tables in the back and tables for 2 set up at the bar. The Hotel offers outside dining. The Wait staff is friendly and personable. Reservations are recommended.

I was there Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Friday I had the Farmers daughter pizza and it was excellent. I highly recommend. Sunday we shared the nachos and the mushroom pizza. Also excellent. I had never had the nachos but was pleasantly surprised. Patty knows how to make an excellent dirty martini and again Cindy was very friendly and helpful.

Excellent food. Apparently they added a new chef recently to their newly expanded kitchen and while the menu was a bit limited right now due to Covid, the food was excellent.

The salmon was perfectly cooked, the crust on the pizza was really good. We also had a shrimp appetizer that was great. I could also hear people near us raving about the burgers.

Overall a great place with a super friendly, experienced staff. I’m looking forward to things opening up a bit more to see what else they add to the menu. Besides great food and service, the fact that it is in a very nice historic building in a quaint lively town, you really can’t go wrong coming here.

Had a great meal — sat in bar area at a high-top table. My husband and I shared a delicious salad, a mussels special, a cheeseburger and the brownie sundae. Excellent cocktails. Enjoyed a little March Madness action, to boot! We’ll return again soon!

The food was decent (although there were only four VERY small shrimp on the Garlic Shrimp appetizer, which seemed like not a lot of food for $14), but the service was terrible. We had to hunt down servers (not our own--she disappeared after our drinks arrived) to get straws, water, and refills on drinks. There seemed to be a good number of servers working, but none seemed to be assigned specifically to the bar area, where we were seated, so it felt like that section was being ignored so they could all focus on the main dining room. We had hoped to have another round of drinks and maybe some more food, but it was like pulling teeth to find someone, so we figured it was better just to get our check and leave or we would have been there all night waiting.

What can we say other than The Cranford Hotel is our "go-to" place for good food, warm ambience, and an attentive (but not overly so), friendly staff. Pre-COVID, we were there once a week. Now that it's open again, we just really enjoy it. The Dining Room is comfort, the Porch a delight, and the downstairs a gem of a bar. (The Bar upstairs is no slouch, either!) Always a treat to go there.

Sat night and service was very slow. We were in basement which was cozy but a bit claustrophobic. And service was bad- never checked in, had to flag our waitress down to get drink refills, and even had to cancel dessert after waiting 15 minutes.
Food was good so we may try it again when it’s not so busy.
