Their fish is perfect. Cod is huge pieces.

I go to lunch here, dinner, and have been in back room for parties. Food is good. There is a bar, but, I do not drink much.

We love Old Bag of Nails and started that love affair originally back in 2009 at the Marysville location. Living closer to Delaware we started visiting that location instead. We gradually realized the service and food quality was quickly becoming unacceptable. Marysville is somewhat better, but you feel invisible at times there too. Last visit to Delaware I asked why...

I went down here with my boyfriend and daughter to visit my mom. We decided to go to the Old Bag Of Nails to eat because most of us hadn't ever been there. The atmosphere was relaxed and old timey (which I love). We got put in the back corner which didn't really give us the chance to people watch... More

prices are way out of line unless you like paying alot for more which most people in this town do. atmosphere is ok but as far as quality and quantity go no way.go to redrock cafe for better food and a better value.

Sorry but this would not be my first choice to eat out in Delaware. Last visit, the food was so-so, nothing to write home about. Place was not real clean feeling - including the bathrooms.

I was Old Bag of Nails Pub on a business lunch. Normally I'm not a fish guy and don't get it. The beer battered fish was AMAZING. I then tried the blackened fish which blew my mind as well. I would strongly recommend this to the non fish eaters as well as the die hard fans. The portions are very... More

Service staff was terribly short. we ordered the famous fish and chips, worst fish we ever had. soggy wet and greasy! Patron at the bar vulgar knocking over chairs obnoxious and they continue to serve Him liquor including additional shots of liquor. manager was coughing in your hand and touching people's food and glassware.

The New England Clam Chowder in this restaurant is phenomenal. I wish it was served in a larger bowl! I highly recommend this restaurant to others (be sure to order the clam chowder).

A very good surprise! We were in town for Little Brown Jug and went after race with family and friends. Couldn't believe they had a fish rueben on menu and thought, can't be good since it's not in Florida. I was very surprised as it competed with the Florida ones! It was excellent and the fried corn, knocked it out... More
