Stopped here for dinner with my wife. The restaurant is located below road level and has a real pub atmosphere, dark wood and exposed brick walls. Our waitress was excellent. We each had salads, mine had shrimp and hers has steak. We assumed that we would be hungry after the salads since they were both only 8-9 bucks. For that... More

I have celiac and asked about a gluten free menu - none - but I was told I could have Shepard's Pie because it had meat and potatoes (???) - I said, "what about the gravy - I'm sure that has wheat in it"...to which Ms. Gluten Free Wanna Be said, "Oh, I ate it yesterday, maybe that's why i... More

Tucked away in the old Cotton Exchange building, closes at 9p so. Stopped in for beer as we started our pub crawl of Wilmington, nice chat with MEG our barmaid who shared some tips for our adventure. Pub style menu, dinners being served look and smelled great. I would dine here next time.

Our group ate here for lunch. The food was good but nothing spectacular. I thought it was a little over priced too. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. I did however love the decor and vibe of the place. Worth going to at least once.

The interior and the bar is very nice. Lots of beautiful wood giving a warm comfy pub atmosphere. Staff was very attentive, while the menu offered nice seafood pub type food! We will definitely come again!

Quiet, rustic which is good for a pub. Food is good for a lunch. Friendly wait-staff. Lunch served fairly quick. Convienent to downtown.

Went for a bite after the boat show. Cold beer. Sat inside and enjoyed the jalapeño burger. Fries could have been cooked a bit longer. Salads looked good.

We ate outside even though it was 90 - there was a nice breeze. The crab dip was excellent and we had the Caribbean tacos- oh so good. Service was excellent even though we were the only ones outside. Their specials are great. We ate inside the last time and prefer the outside- quieter.

This place is very good. I had a glitch at first. My salad had knats in it. I returned it and they made me a grilled chicken meal with vegetables. It was so good. They comped my meal because of the previous problem. The server was excellent. I will definitely be returning.

Thank sstancel
