The BBC Tavern and Grill is a hip, casual, yet upscale tavern and grill in the heart of Delaware's chateau country. We have a fun and eclectic menu with all of your favorites that you would expect to find in a traditional tavern and grill, such as homemade burgers, buffalo wings, chili, to hot soft pretzels with homemade mustards, crab and corn chowder, and we also serve entrees such as tender filet mignon, Eastern Shore crab cakes and Seared Faroe Island Salmon with French lentils, simmered root vegetables, bacon and a touch of rosemary.

Went for Taste of the Brandywine, which was advertised as happening from October 12-22nd. We went on the 19th, and were told that the 18th was the restaurant’s last day they were participating in the event...however this was not noted on any of information for Taste of Brandywine. When I pressed and said the event is advertised for these dates, they allowed us to order off the Taste of Brandywine menu but said they were no longer making some of the items on the menu, and wouldn’t substitute something else. Example: they no longer had mushroom soup, and they wouldn’t let us get the french onion.

Service was also extremely slow. We probably sat for about 45 minutes before our drink order was taken and an additional 30 minutes after our drink order was taken they took our food order. Dinner was like a three and a half hour event.

We had to wait a long time for a waiter/waitress & we finally asked for someone to come to the table to wait on us. When he came, he brought one drink that was wrong (coke instead of diet coke). It took approx 10 min to get a diet coke. We usually love the restaurant but this time felt dissapointed with the lack of service. The food was as good as always. I just was dissapointed with the service.

Service and everything else other than the food was good. Food was mediocre. Soup & fries were cold. That seems basic to me. Won't return.

Delicious potato, cheddar, broccoli soup (although didn't see any broccoli) and half of tuna sandwich. Soup serving was a little small, it was so good, I would have like to have a larger serving. Oh well-next time, I'll be back!

It is always a pleasure to eat at BBC Tavern & Grill! We are so appreciative that there is such a large outdoor area to accommodate us, and we feel very safe and well-spaced out with other diners. The food is always delicious and plentiful, and the service is top-notch. Thanks for a great dining experience!!

Numerous dining experiences during the pandemic, both takeout and outside. Maybe the beautiful weather was the cause for an unusually slow and not very appetizing food experience on this latest visit. Subparagraph this time around but will return to try again.

Their menu is always good with a variety of options. I generally eat their seafood and find it tasty. Their sea bass and shrimp tacos are delicious! I love their fried goat cheese and buffalo cauliflower. They have done a fantastic job with the outdoors so it feels spacious and safe.

We requested outdoor seating and the covered patio was full when we arrived. We were pleased they set up extra tables with umbrellas just beyond the patio for us and others. Outdoor dining is a must for us these days! The scallop entrée on the dinner specials menu was very good. I recommend it. Service was pleasant, but at times a little slow.

Service was slightly lacking as there was several periods of time that the wait person was unavailable for things like drink refills or to take an order.

Pasta primavera with grilled salmon was perfectly prepared. The only thing better was the chocolate lava cake! Extremely reasonable prices and excellent service. My first visit there, but won't be the last!

I ate outside which would have been fine if I smoked. Two diners walked next door to smoke a couple of times but it was blowing on our table. I had yummy nachos but friend had overcooked salmon. If you eat here opt for inside and skip the salmon. I had a nice glass of wine and that was good. Service was a little slow.
