Jessop’s is the only show in town on Monday, but don’t be disappointed, it’s wonderful. Luncheon fare was tasty & well prepared & don’t miss the ice cream!

A special place. Maintains a historic environment in location, architecture, dress and menu. Limitless beer choices and a menu with choice and quality. A short walk to colonial buildings and streets. New Castle was the first Delaware state capital. Super experience all around.
