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.

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.

Love the fact BBC is very dog friendly. The patio with awning and fans adds to the ambience.

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.

Great lunch on a rather cool day in comparison to the last few. We were seated outside to enjoy wonderful sandwiches. In and out rather quickly with no troubles. BBC continues in tradition and comfort as a hospitable restaurant taking in the precautions of COVID-19.

Headed to BBC for an early dinner and sat at the inside bar (front sliding doors wide open!). As always, great service, thoroughly enjoyed the watermelon gazpacho and a shared order of nachos. The full order is more than plenty for two to share; would recommend half an order. Always fresh, lots of cheese smothered crispy chips, black beans, and of course BBC's homemade guacamole. Just a great place to hang and relax.

The hostess was pleasant and we were seated immediately. We dine at 4pm on a mid-weeknight so the restaurant was pretty quiet. The waitress was pleasant as well. However, our 2 BLTs came out with NO bacon whatsoever and no mayo either. When alerted, the waitress brought one small plate of bacon for both sandwiches. And we were charged $14 each for a BLT on white toast. The creme brulee that we ordered for dessert had no hard toasted sugar on top. The top was soggy and without the signature window pane of bruleed sugar. Unfortunately, the food left a lot to be desired.

Overall bad experience, pregnant daughter ordered her burger well done it came out rare. Son in law ordered sandwich with regular fries he got sweet potato fries. Service was terribly slow with such a small crowd. We received a VIP coupon today and restaurant wouldn’t accept it, waitress told us the owner said no because they’re struggling. We are all struggling during this pandemic.

The hostess was terrible! She never spoke just stood there dumbfounded! We had 2 reservations on open table. First part of our group sat right away. Second part of our group took 15 longer than our reservation and again hostess was useless. I can’t believe she still works there! The male host wasn’t any better. Both of these people represent your restaurant and had no clue what they were doing!
