MENUS & INFORMATION
Craigie Next Door
With great joy and anticipation… Welcome to "Craigie Next Door" - the outside dining restaurant next to Craigie on Main. Our spacious outdoor lot features widely spaced tables in a comfortable, and dare we say, "cool" dining area.
At "Craigie Next Door," we serve family-style dinners cooked by me, Tony Maws, every night! We’re not talking about cute little pretentious plates of micro-sized food here. Instead, imagine bountiful summer salads, grilled farmer’s market vegetables, local fish, and meats with all the flavors and originality you have come to expect in your Craigie on Main meals, just shareable. Much like the "Chef's Whim" there will be no choices - just a nod to vegetarians and certain food allergies. Simply put, we are throwing a dinner party outside each night for you and yours!
Tickets are available on OpenTable Experiences. Price per person includes dinner menu, 7% tax, and 18% service charge (that goes directly to our staff). Beverages are available to order a la carte during your visit.
In lieu of a traditional gratuity, an 18% hospitality administrative charge will be added to all dinner tickets booked for Craigie Next Door. Though this charge in no way represents a tip, service fee or gratuity, every cent of the 18% is distributed equitably to our Back of House and Front of House employees, and none of it is retained by the business. Please inquire with any questions or to have the charge removed or changed. If you would like to leave an additional amount as a traditional tip, those funds will be shared exclusively with the service staff as required by MA law. Your generous support of our team is appreciated!

We love the idea of helping you keep your pantry filled with Craigie-made, non ubiquitous provisions that will help you in your home kitchens. Take a peek, and keep an eye out as this evolves.
