The whole evening was great. The service and food were outstanding. We were in a side room. Every table was booked. The only problem was the noise. There are high ceilings and bare wooden floors. Nothing muffles the noise.

What a disappointment! My prior lunch at the Washington Crossing Inn was wonderful; I wonder if there's a new chef, however, the menu is the same! I had the Mango Arugula Salad with Chicken
(mango, baby arugula, chopped roasted almonds, mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, shredded parmesan, honey pear vinaigrette). It was hard to find the parmesan cheese & almonds and worst of all, the chicken was very dried out. I needed a sip of water to get each bite down. My friend had the White Pizza (crème fraiche, ricotta, fontina) and requested that it not be burned. It was burned around the edges and all of the cheese was dried out.

Outdoor dining was in a beautiful setting with tables set apart from each other. Menu choices were good and varied. Service was outstanding. Food portions were somewhat on the modest side, but excellently prepared. Menu items were somewhat pricey. Ambience was relaxing.

The calamari was outstanding, sea bass was great, but the grill was not hot enough to cook the filet to perfection. The entertainment was really good!

I would not go back ! I always wanted to try it - Pretty place, love the setting but it was mediocre at best! We sat at our table for at least 25 minutes before the waitress even approached us. She looked and acted like a lifetime diner waitress - no disrespect but not at all what I would have expected. The bill was $144 for 2 people including one drink. Seriously!!!! The food was not bad but way too overpriced. The dessert was god awful out of a box. Would never to back!

Food and outdoor setting were very good but last night's service brought the mark down. The hostess and support staff were very good but our server either needs more training or more experience; probably both. (I understand restaurants are having challenges recruiting staff, but if a person is not ready, please do not put them out on the front line on a busy night.)

Two meals were delivered fine the other two had to be returned to the kitchen; one twice for corrections either due to the server misunderstanding the requests or the kitchen not modifying the items from the menu descriptions.

The Inn has music outdoors on Friday evenings (maybe others?) and the guitarist was excellent; great song choices and just the right volume setting so as not to overwhelm conversations.

Wonderful ambiance in this historic colonial restaurant! The quality of food and service are exceptional. Several options for dining both inside and outside (immense patio). Ample parking and great location in Washington Crossing. We dine here often because we've never been disappointed in the past 30 years. Reservations highly recommended - this is a very popular restaurant in Bucks County.

This was our first experience at this restaurant. We were seated immediately for our 6pm reservation. Was a little disappointed that guitarist was located at the outdoor seating. Not sure if that was noted in the promotion of this entertainment. The room we were seated in was comfortable and quiet. Our server was pleasant and friendly. She was very attentive and helpful. Our drinks, salads and entrees arrived quickly. The food was fantastic. Food presentation was excellent and meal was very delicious. Highly recommend this venue. We will be returning soon.

Girls night out proved to be spectacular. Outside seating was very comfortable and the foliage gave the feeling of a tropical paradise. Food was outstanding. Two friends had the salmon and raved about it. The pork chop was very tender and plentiful. Service was prompt and attentive . Will definitely be back.

Lots of wait staff who are very friendly but I guess right now not enough cooks in the kitchen. One of my favorite spots outside.

We’ve been here many times and the food is always delicious. This is the first time our waitress wasn’t really good. She never gave us water, bread or refilled our drinks when we asked. She always seem to be in a hurry but I don’t know where she was going because we never saw her and when we did we could not get her attention. Other than that the food was top notch

The lobster ravioli was outstanding but a little pricey and odd salad doesn’t come with it especially at that price. The oysters were also high priced. It took a bit before we were asked if we wanted a drink.

Washington Crossing Inn is just a fabulous venue for a summer meal al fresco. The service and food are excellent, and then taking an after dinner stroll through a historical area and/or the park is a lovely ending.
