If you want great Nachos, go to Kates on Tuesday night; they're half price. The interior is charming and the staff friendly and inviting. It get busy while the U of D is in session, but it's worth it.

A little loud, due to decor, food good, bloody marys and beer very good, prices good, parking could be a problem, but walking around a college town is always fun, and makes you feel young and carefree again

We were walking on Main St Saturday night to find a place to eat and this place was packed so we figured it must be good. We started at the bar, the bartenders were friendly and the prices were great. The inside is really nice. We decided to try to get a table on the porch for dinner since it... More

Went with a group of 6 people. They originally told us 30 minute wait, but we ended up waiting about an hour. Delicious nachos, salads, and sandwiches! Great service as well.

Enjoyed the personalized service of the waitstaff-very well treated. However the pace of the service was slow. The food was incredible, recommend the Salmon Salad! A small salad is room enough for dessert!

The place was packed when we got there for lunch and it was busy but only waited 5 mins. The food all came out warm. Everything from the crab/artichoke dip, I think it sat out there too long and the waiter forgot about it, to the frozen patty turkey burger that I ordered with again tepid sweet potato fries. The...

I ordered the steak and eggs. Medium rare steak 2 poached eggs. Food came out after 20 mins stone cold. They took the food back and said... More

I was at u.d. for a visit with the graduate p.t. program and when asked was recommended kates over and over. Great recommendation. Very laid back place. While we waited for an outside table, we were able to grab some drinks at the bar. The waiter, Evan w. Did a great job especially as busy as it was during lunch.... More

This restaurant has some of the best Bar food in Newark. The Nacho's app is outstanding and enough for a table of four. The Burgers are nice and juicy and always cooked to perfection. I recommend you make a reservation when dining over the weekend.
