Crab cakes

Very quiet with not much energy in the dining room; however, the food was very good. Highly recommend the crab cakes. Service was just okay considering the restaurant was not busy. Appeared the waitress was also working the bar area.

I ate dinner here with 4 other people. One person thought the seafood appetizer was good but was way too salty. Our rice wasn't done and the chicken marsala was very salty also. Prices were reasonable. I would not go here again when there are so many other options for dinner nearby.

Lovely old building and pleasant waitress but th e food was very ordinary. One of our party said the rice was undercooked, entrée very salty. We asked for rolls and never got them. Prices on the pub menu weren't bad but I would probably not return when there are other choices in town.

My wife and I were out of town and searching for a restaurant following a full day of sightseeing. I came across the KSI on one of the dining websites and decided to give it a try. We had some trepidation when we arrived, as the place is somewhat less than inspiring from the street. Once inside, however, we were... More

This is a neighborhood spot that has been in business for a very long time. As such, it is a local favorite but may not be known to many people who are a bit more recent. The food is good and quite reasonable. The atmosphere is somewhat blah but not out of character for the bar room. The more formal... More

The Kennett Inn is my go to place for bar food. Located on the corner of Broad and State, the Kennett Inn is situated in the center of Kennett Square - an easy stop for lunch or dinner after visiting all of Kennett's great shops. The restaurant offers a bar, tavern seating, a formal restaurant and patio dining. My favorite... More

Stopped off here for their famous mushroom soup; it did not disappoint! We chose to eat in the tavern; very pub like. Had a couple of drinks, mushroom soup and a cold roast beef sandwich. All were good and service was friendly. We'd come back!

We had lunch on a Saturday afternoon before a visit to Longwood Gardens. The service was slow with a very in attentive server. When it started to get busy, they did not have enough help. Had to go to the desk and ask for check, left cash and left. Too bad it's a nice location and could be so much... More

I have eaten here 4 times in the last year and a half. The first time was not so bad, but each subsequent time it has gotten progressively worse - from colorless lettuce to poorly cooked meals. The last visit I ordered a hamburger thinking that was pretty hard to mess up. It was so greasy that the bun was... More

Looked charming as we drove past so we found a parking place on the next block and went in for lunch. We chose to eat in the pub/tavern room, which was bright and cozy with about 5 tables. The same lunch menu is also served in the more formal white-tablecloth restaurant (may be different in the evening). The pub seems... More
