This location is unique in that it has a historic pub feel. Also, they have a wonderful outside bar and eating area that is in the heart of historic Downtown Delaware. It is a pleasant experience to eat outside in the warm weather months. Since most of the events in Delaware happen within this two block area, it is a... More

The Old Bag of Nails isn't just a pub for those who want a beer and a sandwich. It is a real restaurant with a nicely broad menu, wonderful bar, and a friendly casual atmosphere. The service was great... and especially appreciated was the special attention given to our 3 year old guest. This is a family-friendly pub with great... More

We had a party of ten and were seated in a reasonable amount of time. We enjoy several appetizers, all were very good. Everyone's meal were delicious. Even the children all liked their food. Drinks were reasonable due to happy hour. The mussels with shrimp were excellent. Yum yum.

This place has great fish and chips and very good mussels! It's nothing to go out of your way for, but it's a good local restaurant. We are definite repeat customers, but we prefer Bun's to Old Bag of Nails.

Not the best experience I've ever had here. Had a plastic lid in my salad. I will say both managers apilogized and made me a new salad but didn't offer to comp my meal. I love the fried pickles. Yum

Excellent food and good service, Fish and chips are a must. I have visited on several different occasions and always have found the food to be tasty and the service to be excellent. Upon my last visit I had the Lobster roll sandwich and fried corn.

We were told disinterested lyrics that none of the four unoccupied tables on the patio were available. We asked if we could sit and have a beer. "No." Stopped and talked to friends on the patio for 20 minutes. Still no occupant at 4 tables. Before we put this restaurant on our banned list (mediocre food, unpleasant waitstaff, etc. )... More
