Friendly bar keeps even when busy. Great beer selection. I was there on the 4th and it was rocking, and the tenders were still really helpful. Outside area is nice. Great family place. I did not try the food because when we came back to eat there was a one hour wait. Next time for sure!

Great food, great atmosphere and not just the usual "pub" menu. We got our soup and salad quickly but then the main course came right after that. Therefore, our main course got a little cold and our table crowded with plates and dishes.

This location has a nice outdoor area. There is an outdoor bar, and smoking is allowed. the menu: MUST HAVE Fried Pickles.. hand battered spears-- not frozen from a bag. Same with their fried mushrooms. Massive mushrooms with a great horseradish type sauce- also hand battered-- huge portion. When I moved to Ohio I asked around for a good place... More

If you are looking for a nice place to sit on patio and have a pub style dinner, then this is it. It is not fancy and the service can be a little slow, but all in all it is a good place to grab a burger.

We were thrilled when Old Bag of Nails finally came to Delaware a few years ago; I work in Columbus and visited the Nelson Rd. restaurant often. The food is good and plentiful and the menu diverse enough that it should please most everyone. Although I like fish & chips, I love their Greek salad with grilled salmon with a... More

Our disappointing visit last week will be our last. My friend ordered the pretzel appetizer. Our dinners arrived before it after several pleas with our server as to where it may be. My husband ordered the fisherman's platter to discover it to be cold. Fried fish needs to be HOT. Our friends' meals were also lukewarm. My shrimp tacos were... More

It's better than a bar, with much better food, but still a bar. Wednesday is all you can eat shrimp, which is excellent.

Part of a small chain in Northern Columbus suburbs. The dining room is nice, there is an outdoor patio during warm weather. There is an "event room" towards the back that lets you have your groups of 25 or so in and sit together. Typical upscale pub food and prices.

Went to this place with a friend and the waitress gave me the regular coke and my friend the diet. I realized this when I took a sip. I told her I was given my friend's drink and that I'd ordered the diet. She actually said, "Well what do you want me to do about it?" Horrible service and the... More
