Right on Rd 2 in Erving. Small but nicely done. Welcoming host. Good selection of beers and wines. Wonderful sandwiches and home made soup. The owner/server offered to do a soup and 1/2 sandwich so I could try both. Excellent service and reasonable prices

I stopped by mid afternoon for a late lunch. Greeted by the owner Mike. I had a cup of chowder, a great sandwich and a draft beer. Now the clam chowder. I had to look for the potatoes but it was loaded with clams and very good. The tab came to $15 which was quite reasonable. Will be back!

While heading to Wilmington, Vermont, our (very) winding road took us through Erving, Massachusetts. We were hungry, and also getting a little annoyed by the nice lady (voice) of Google Maps. A solution was found. We would stop and eat. We knew the Crooked Tap was highly rated, and we soon found out why. We had some amazing fresh NE... More

First time here. Stopped on the way back from Boston. Go trip advisor. Mike was very welcoming. Hey, what's not to love about a guy that brings you popcorn! Had a hot winding road sandwich. Very tasty. Fine brightly appointed place. Will be back. Thanks Crooked Tap Cafe.

This is a diamond in the rough. Great owners, great food and a great beer selection. Mike and Simone could not have been nicer. We stopped in for a quick drink after skiing at Northfield mountain and ended up staying for 2 hours - most of it a great conversation with the owners. Highly recommended.

This is the best place in Erving. Always go here after climbing at Farley. The sandwiches are huge and fresh. The owners are sooooo nice. Absolutely stop here! Spongebob must have come here in an off day.

This small brew pub-cafe was a wonderful place to stop for lunch on Rte 2 as we traveled to Vermont. The owner was super friendly, the local beers excellent, and the sandwiches delicious.
