I have tried going to this restaurant at least 10 to 12 times and only one time did I get good service. If you sit in the area closest to the kitchen, you can smell the cooking oil, and the french fries, taste like fish. We actually sat at the bar for 10 minutes (only people at the bar) as... More

The menu is your typical bar food and it's all good! There's plenty of TV's so you can watch multiple sporting events and have a good meal.

Visited this place once. I know it is popular. I'm 61...maybe in my younger days I would have loved it but our party of four had to literally shout across a 4 foot table to be heard. It was a race weekend at Mid Ohio, so that may have had something to do with the crowd. Food was OK but... More

Old Bag of Nails needs to up their game! The restaurants are all consistently poorly managed with no focus on customer service. We waited to have the TV's channels changed, we waited to order drinks, we waited for our drinks, we waited for our silverware! Menu is too large, beer wasn't ice cold! Breaded mushrooms a keeper, always consistently good... More

My wife and I eat here at least one to two time's a month. We normally go for Gaylords fish and chips. In my opinion Old Bag of Nails has the best fish in Mansfield, and I have lived here for forty six years. I have tried about everything on the menu, it is all good. Then if your into... More

Restaurant looks cute on the outside, but the inside was missing the same charm. There is the bar and patio area. Service was just ok. And felt the same about the food. Restaurant claims they are famous for their fish and chips. Portion sizes were generous but fish was very greasy. Instead of getting that sweet flaky taste of the... More

Ate here twice and had at least part of the meal cool largely due to sloooooooow. Service. Got take out last time and able to enjoy the food warmer for the most part than when we dined in. We really enjoyed the food last eimd, but our overall review is from our dine in.

We had not been here before and ordered entirely too much food! However, the prices were extremely fair and the fish was amazing! We will definitely be coming back for the all-you-can-eat fish and chips done grilled, battered, or blackened. Good eats!

My friends and I stop in here often the menu is priced right and always have a great selection of draft micro beers. I recommend the mussels and shrimp and the French dip also kick butt blackened all you can eat fish. Great place won't be disappointed

My friends used this pub as a midpoint to meet for dinner. Thankfully, we weren't in a hurry, because the service was abysmal. We waited an abnormally long amount of time for our food, and the waitress (who was nice, but not completely attentive) only refilled our drinks once when we managed to flag her down. She also incorrectly rang... More
