    We started with refreshing Geist Tea beverages and a charcuterie board. Then all four of us at the table had tacos -- all varieties, including the vegetable version, were delicious! We sat outside on a lovely evening -- next time we will dine inside, as it was so loud with street traffic. Great dining experience but would be better conversation indoors.

    Very inconsistent experiences the times I have dined there. This last time the waitress delivered my dinner and our appetizer at the same time, and no food for my friend. We waited well over 20 minutes for her food to arrive and had to ask several times. By the time the food got to us, it was time to leave. Other times, the wait to be seated has been too long to risk not knowing what the experience will be like.

    All of the food was COLD besides the steak which was LUKEWARM. I was never asked by my server how the food was after getting it remade, it was still cold but I ate one of the three tacos because I was starving. Ended up taking them home, reheating them and attempting to eat them but they were so bland and flavorless I threw them away. My daughters macaroni and fries were cold but we couldn't wait another 15 minutes to feed her so I let her eat it. The "elote" is not elote at all it's literally just corn with cheese, no seasoning or sauce like traditional elote is made. The brussel sprouts, which took far too long to come out as an appetizer were extremely salty. The service was not good, especially for her to be an older women with serving experience I'd assume, she was not at all attentive and didn't seem to care that even after she brought my remade order, it was barely touched. Spent $87 on a terrible meal.

    This has to be one of the friendliest and most accommodating places around. We had a reservation for 4 at 5:30 after reassurance that the Ginger Spaghetti Squash was vegan, asked to change it to pick up at 530, then asked at 5 if we could come early. Changes were quickly and agreeably made in phone calls. When we picked up the food the staff were quick to get the order, called me by name and were seriously friendly. As a former Brown Jug patron I was impressed with the decor changes and the new ambience. Food was excellent, 2 Caesar salads and 2 Spaghetti Squash dinners, take out containers were recyclable. Hope to go back soon and eat in.

    The service was great and a fun and lively atmosphere. We enjoyed the Hush Puppies although I’m not sure about the vinegar on the side. The fish and chips was amazing and enough for two. We also had specialty cocktails that were very tasty. We will be back.

    After Sunday Mass, we wanted to try a new restaurant in downtown Delaware. The Old Dog Alehouse looked like a nice place to try, with an interesting menu, and beer and bar selections. Alas, they can't serve alcohol (other than beer) on Sundays! We weren't aware of this until we sat down, so that was a big disappointment. But, my brother-in-law really enjoyed the two craft beers that he tried, and we enjoyed the tasty pulled pork nachos. I like to enjoy Bourbon or wine, so we went elsewhere for heavier fare. We won't hesitate to return to Old Dog, as long as it's not on a Sunday.
