I've been here several times and it has been great....though today...total disappointment. Got to the restaurant at 12:30, ordered food,food didn't come out until 1:15. the place was busy, which i get...but they need to be staffed for the busy lunch time. There were a few bigger parties...which were catered to more than the average table. Waiting 45 minutes for... More

The food and drinks are great and you can't beat the outdoor patio on nice days. My one complaint though is that the service has been slow the last few times I've been there. During the lunch hour this is especially frustrating when you have a limited amount of time before returning to work.

I'm a local and I've been around to places but one place I used to love was mckenzies. They had (and have) amazing nachos, but Much of the other food quality has gone down. Possibly due to a focus on brewing. Still, it's a good place for a night out as a couple or with the family. Has a very... More

Went several times over the past weekend and really enjoyed it. Nice bar area with TV's if you want to watch the games. Good service.

My husband and I happened on this Pub while attending the 31st Mushroom Festival in Kennett Square, PA. Our hotel was in Wilmington, Delaware and we were looking for just a snack before going to Longwood Gardens in the evening. We lucked out! The bartender named Andrew helped us select a great snack - a trio of dips and pitas... More

The food is great, but the service is slow. I usually go during the lunch time from work. I make sure to keep 15-20 minutes of buffer time.

Our first visit to this location, our second to the chain, was less than memorable, at least for the reasons you want to remember a restaurant. First, the service was very very slow and very very inattentive as our server disappeared for long stretches. Second, the time it took to get our dinners was extremely long, and we could see...

We sat outside and it was a very pleasant area. Our food was delicious and our server was attentive. It had a very nice atmosphere.

Two of us stopped in for a late lunch about 1:30 on a Friday when the parking lot was almost empty. It had been packed when we went by earlier. Two appetizers, calamari and a crab spinach dip with chips was more than we needed for a very reasonable lunch. The dip warmed up to be tasty the next day.

Food was very good and plentiful. Just sort of happened upon this when looking for a dining spot while driving around area which was unfamiliar to us. Many cars in parking lot which is always a good sign. Would stop here again
