When for Thanksgiving dinner with friends, This place is usually first rate, not this time however. Problem started with the server who was not efficient. She could not get the meal choices correct, checking several times on our order. Then when they were served they were served to the wrong person. The turkey dinner was fine, but two in our... More

We have made it a tradition to revisit the place we got married … The Cranbury Inn in Cranbury, NJ. First of all, we are so glad we chose the Cranbury Inn because they were more than accommodating when they learned we would have a non-traditional wedding where we provided the props all week prior to the big event.

There are some serious problems here, not least of which is the food. The Inn earns points for ambiance as long as you sit outside for lunch on a nice day, or dinner after the sun has set. Otherwise the front porch is in the sun and gets very hot. Inside the Inn is dark. Very dark. Not inviting at... More

Downscale environment with low end food. Went to 2 different birthday parties, and found it disappointing for food and environment.

There are a couple of tables on the front porch so you can eat outdoors. This is an old Inn with a lot of history and interesting to walk all around especially the lobby area. They also have a large room in the back for larger affairs. Ther lobster lunch is delicious with lots of lobster not drowning in mayo

The decor was cluttered, very old, dark, and needed a good clean. We all ordered filet mignon which was bland and unfulfilling. You can add salt, but you can't add flavor. The waitstaff was very friendly and very accommodating. They honored changes to the plates without question! The wine was fine, but the "Diet Coke" tasted off brand. We were... More

My second visit here was actually better than the first. We were a large group of 16 and they were ready for us. My biggest compliment was the service. Impeccable! We all ordered numerous cocktails, appetizers and entrees and everything was served promptly We were not rushed and enjoyed a relaxing 4 hour dinner. I would describe the food as... More

We attended a wedding reception at the Inn and it could not have been handled better. the pre-dinner cocktails and snacks was in a separate room with an open bar an then dinner was in a large, nicely appointed room with a dance floor. The food was excellent - filet mignon, salmon and crispy duck were all cooked to perfection... More
