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

Had family visiting from out of town, went there for happy hour. The happy hour menu is not that good, but the rest is. The beer is excellent (but too pricey for $5 a pint), food is ok, and ambience is nice. TV's all over the bar made it easy to glance at the Olympic games.

My medium-rare filet mignon was delivered closer to medium-well. The fries were greasy. My daughters strip steak tasted very good (according to her). However her refill (coke) was delivered when we were ready to leave. After having got a set of complimentary desserts we left not fully satisfied.

Beer was flat and smelled of dirty tap lines. Fries were mushy and terrible. Three vege burgers, a cup of soup and 2 beers, $70 without tip for lunch? Never again... The women's bathroom was a mess at ! PM in the afternoon. ??????

I was here for a private party of about 40 people in the pub downstairs. We had a buffet style dinner. We ate salad, turkey, fish, roast beef, pasta, mashed potatoes and everything was delicious. I highly recommend a reasonable priced dinner for a private party. They gave 2 pool tables as well. Good music and fun!
