Gastro Pub
Letty’s Tavern bringing a refined, yet approachable concept to Kennett, it offers elevated pub fare, east coast style pizza and boasts a new bottle shop. Letty’s is named after its resident spirit, Leticia who was named after William Penn’s daughter. She’s been known to visit from time to time. The unique gastropub and bottle shop takes their hospitality legacy seriously by featuring innovative and vibrant craft cocktails, as well as a thoughtfully curated wine and beer program. Letty’s brings a laid back, west coast vibe to the more serious shores of the east coast through great atmosphere, food, cocktails, and service. While unsurpassed hospitality is certainly nothing new, this concept is, and we are happy to share it with you.

Main dining room very loud , we enjoy the bar side much more but there were no tables free for us
Good service , would love to see more green vegetable options, like a simple salad
The cauliflower appetizer is terrific, French fries great ! Menu a little heavy for my liking but overall I'd recommend and hope we see some changes as they evolve

Had a reservation for 7:00pm. When we arrived there was a sign on the door indicating they were closed because of mechanical problem. Although I did not know it at the time, I Received a voice mail around 5:00pm indicating there was a problem and they were closed. Appreciate the heads up. Will try again another time.

Reservations were almost an hour late, food was some of the worst food I’ve eaten anywhere.. the fries were the best part of my meal.. baby screaming the entire time.. a glob of honey was left on the table and not wiped down.. this is by far one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t not recommend this place to anybody.

Food very flavorful and nicely prepared. Our server was friendly and attentive. 6:30 on a Saturday night already out of several dishes and draft beers. A bit expensive for what you get. 3 scallops for $26 and a few thin slices of zucchini. My 6’, 225 son laughed when he saw this dinner. Main dining room extremely loud.

Got the scallops they served three medium size scallops and a couple of slices of zucchini for $26. They were good but not worth price. The appetizers were ok had the beignets and mushrooms they both desperately needed salt. Overall a disappointment.

It was our first time at Letty’s and we were blown away. From the small bites, to the appetizers, to the pizza and sandwiches. All 5-star. The food overall was outstanding and the service was friendly and very helpful. We can’t wait to go back again.

Extremely loud in dining room. Our party of four could barely hear each other talk. I didn’t think it could possibly get any louder, but after the band started in the bar next to the dining room it was virtually impossible to have a conversation. Please put some sound dampers in the dining room. The food and service were great, but I doubt we will be back unless the noise issue is addressed.

Great service and a very unique eating experience. Most people see “tavern” in the name and think burger and beer joint. This is definitely not that. They have a full service bar and an excellent staff. Their pizza crust is probably the best outside of NJ and NY. You want be sorry with that selection. So many more items on the menu. Homemade pasta, Savory Beignets, seafood etc.. Desserts are all made on premises as well. The owners are always on premises and are very open to saying hello and hearing feedback. Do yourself a favor and try Letty’s. Your guests and your stomachs will thank you.

My husband ordered the fish and chips and the fish was huge and all delicious. I ordered the scallops and zucchini which was also delicious. We got there a little before our reservation and they sent us to their bottle shop downstairs which was really nice and had a vintage feel and we enjoyed cocktails while another patron was playing albums on their record player.

We ordered the pork schnitzel and short ribs. Absolutely perfect! The service was good. Very knowledgeable and helpful. The wait staff juggle inside and outside tables so I gave them extra credit. The cocktails all sounded very interesting so I ordered the ovc. Highly recommend this cocktail for those who want something different and fruity. They surprised us with a key lime pie- and it was to die for! The only downside was the noise level. We measured it at above 80 decibels, and at times more. I would like to visit at a quieter time maybe lunch?

We (party of 6) universally agreed the food was delicious (nothing was left on anyone's plates or the appetizers), staff was friendly and helpful, food was promptly delivered and the portions were perfect. We will definitely come back. One of our party can be a picky eater, and even he enjoyed something he hadn't tried before (a duck based appetizer).

Pizza is not consistent and no mozzarella cheese on Margherita pizza??, was overdone
tomato sauce with few pieces of basil. Very disappointing! Too expensive to disappoint your customers. Seems like they run out of ingredients and Chef is either
overwhelmed or distracted... Hope things get better in the kitchen! Also l go there to try to support a new business owner and want him to succeed!

I had high hopes. The night started with the owner/bartender asking us to switch tables but then we stayed where we were seated originally. He explained that he wanted that table for his family that was coming in later. He was upset with the hostess who sat us there. We offered to move but he said we could stay. He apologized and gave us a shot of pre meal drink. The menu tried too hard to be different and it didn’t work. For example, The Caesar salad didn’t use romaine lettuce. The memo was a little funky but should be more tavern like food. But the food was generally pretty good. Later, the owner kind of pushed us out and said our table was reserved for another group that was coming in at 9 Pm. Not a great experience. Probably not going back.

They ran out of mushroom soup. The salad had brown lettuce. There is a very minimal wine selection and wine by the glass is VERY pricy. I asked for football or even baseball to be put on instead of the depressing news and a cbs show rerun and the server told us they have a cheap Verizon package. With 2 large TVs in the bar, they should be able to put on something that the patrons are interested in. He said “sorry I’m just a server”. I will continue to patronize because it’s a local establishment but they need to do better.

As someone who works back of house in the service industry and picks up on all the nuances when dining out, I can truly say Letty's blew me out of the water. Maybe even the best meal I've had in the past two years. Not only was the menu innovative and exciting, but the dishes were executed with the epitome of precision. Everything from the timing of food arriving (we ordered A LOT), to the attentive waiters, to the incredddddible bartenders, this place belongs in LA or NYC. This is not fine dining - the atmosphere is cozy and rustic with a chill tavern vibe, but the food and cocktails exceed a fine dining standard.

If cocktails are your thing, there is a sitting room downstairs with cozy seating, wine on display, and a record player for use. You can order your drinks from a host downstairs and play some music before your dinner. 1000/10 would recommend to anyone.

We tried 2-3 small plates and every item was unique and awesome. Our server, Cara, could not have been more attentive and helpful in suggesting items to try. Every item had a story and the story was worth hearing. I haven't been this excited about a restaurant in a long time.

I ordered the Gem Salad with the $12 steak add-on. Never in my life have a seen such a small portion of steak. It was very good, but when cut up it equated to about 7 bites of food. Not satisfying at all.

Also got the olive appetizer - good size portion and very good taste. BUT the olives all had pits in them. Not that fun to sit in front of others spitting out the pits to the olives.....not very well thought out.

We were told after 45 minutes that they didn’t have anymore pasta left (we ordered 2 dishes but only could make one of them), and told them to bring out the other food since it was taking forever. Another 1/2 hour later we all got our food. Food all came at different times, pasta special (we apparently took the last one) had 10 pieces of pasta for $28, rip-off! Just wish owner was honest from the beginning.

Terrible service and worse yet, ordered a Caesar salad. We were served broccoli rabe and told it was their version of Caesar salad. Within 10 minutes watched the table next to us get a legit Caesar salad. Will not return or recommend.

Tried for the first time. You will never have an empty water glass as the bussers are on top of that. Food wise - small menu to chose from, and didn't find anything that was a wow. if you are looking for a light bite, then check it out. Dining room can get loud, especially with bigger parties.

This was my second visit to Letty's Tavern. The first visit I got the burger and it was good. This time I got the chicken sandwich. The chicken was extremely thin -- hardly any chicken at all. The side salad that came with it was very good, but $16 for what seemed to be just a few ounces of chicken was definitely not worth it.

So if you hate most of the bland options in Kennett like i do and go to Philly or out of the area for decent food, this is the only place you'll find worth going to. Moved here 10 years ago and this is only the 2nd place I've wanted to come back to, the other closed and I've been looking for a place worth taking out of towners to.

This was my second visit to Letty's and I intentionally made reservations for four at a high top in the bar area due to the noise and in my opinion - a lack of ambiance in the main dining room. Unfortunately when we arrived the hostess informed me there were no high tops available and she had already seated two of our party of four in the main dining room. My husband was told that we should reserve directly on Letty's website to make sure we get the high top seating in the bar area. Our server Chris made up for the less desirable table and we thoroughly enjoyed the craft cocktails, hangar steaks and short rib. If you go, reserve directly on Letty's website and order the OVC - it's good!
