I grew up in this area and haven't been in here for about 30 years. The great part about this place is old tavern look, dark wood and cozy quarters. Good selection of drafts in big name brewery's and lesser known. This place used to be known for their nachos but we had the Eastern Shore pretzels that had real... More

Our son goes to UD and we usually stop into the bar for a quick bite, and unfortunately the bar was full. However, we did get a table and we were so blessed to have this amazing red headed waitress named Megan. She was so funny, tentative to our needs, and got our food and drinks quickly. The food is...

We went with a group for Brunch on Sunday. The food was very good but the bloody Mary bar was even better. Watch out for the Dave's insanity sauce!!

Seven of my coworkers and I visited on a weekday. Our server was friendly and prompt. We were told they were famous for their nachos and different types of gator tots, so we got those. They were good but not great. It is a neat old restaurant. It seems like it would have the university of Delaware college crowd at... More

We walked in for lunch around 12:30 on Sunday & there were 6 waitstaff/hosts (male & female) crowded around the hostess stand. They were all looking at us but not one of them greeted us. Not even a half smile. The girl in the center finally said "how many". Then seated us at the closest table to the host stand.... More

Then you won't be disappointed! The Burgers are tasty and the young serving staff provides good service. I know this is a college hangout; but it needs a lot of improvement on the area of cleanliness. Our table was a sticky mess. Better luck next time. Cheers!

You cannot wait to much from a Pub meant to College students. Not that great quality on beers on tap and cheap food fingers

Good burgers; good service. Friendly atmosphere. Crowded bar, but seating was set apart from bar, so noise level didn't affect meal.
