We have tried this place so many different times over many years and we are ALWAYS disappointed in either the food, the service or the crazy amount of time it takes to get your food. The patio is the only constant 'good' thing about this Old Bag....I believe it must be a management/staffing issue because we love the Gahanna location.

Going back to the Old Bag of Nails Pub in Delaware, Ohio was something my family was really looking forward to because of the incredible service we'd had the previous time. The lunch however, turned out to be a massive disappointment. We were seated quickly because the restaurant wasn't very busy outside of a special party in the banquet room... More

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.

This location is unique in that it has a historic pub feel. Also, they have a wonderful outside bar and eating area that is in the heart of historic Downtown Delaware. It is a pleasant experience to eat outside in the warm weather months. Since most of the events in Delaware happen within this two block area, it is a... More
