We had our granddaughter's birthday party here with about 40 people and loved the facility. Plenty of room in the back for our party and a special menu selection for us that catered to all appetites.

Comfortable pub in downtoen Delaware. Good sized bar. The atmosphere was casual. We both had the fish and chips. Meal arrived hot and was a generous portion. The tarter sauce was different but very good. Nice selection of beers too. Very good value for the cost.

Their fish and chips are delicious. The prices are fair for what you get. The food is always hot and service is consistent. I our experience, the servers are also good with kids.

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.

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.
