Twelves Grill and Cafe now sells PA Craft Beers and Local Wines. Our restaurant is set in a historic bank in the small Borough of West Grove, PA. West Grove is convenient to Rts.1 and 41, 10 mins from Kennett Square and Longwood Gardens and 20 mins from Hockessin, DE.

Twelves began with renovations of the 125 year old bank in January 2008 and the doors to the restaurant were opened on August 26, 2008. Twelves continues to be an amazing part of the West Grove Borough. We currently seat for lunch, brunch, and dinner along with hosting private events, special themed dinners, and local fundraisers.

Twelves Grill and Cafe has been owned by Knute and Bernadette Mellon since 2018. The Mellons are originally from Philadelphia and moved to West Grove in 2013. They have three children Gavin, McKayla, and Maci. The Mellon Family has many exciting plans for the future here in West Grove.

Appetizers were delicious. Entrees we’re just ok and lacked flavor. The risotto was bland and under cooked.

The food was delicious. Had dreams about the mushroom fries and blue cheese coleslaw. All 4 of us enjoyed every bite. Even though it was about a 45 minute drive, we will return soon!

We loved it. We had a party of 8, I try to bring a group each 12th. Service was perfect. The soup was AMAZING. The strawberry shortcake recommended by the server was not great in my opinion. The biscuit was too hard and I didn’t care for the taste. I wouldn’t order again but aside from that, everything was perfect!!

Sorry but this is the second time we’ve had a bad experience with their food. The service was good and they have ample food choices and we were glad to see they have a nice wine selection, however I don’t think that we will be returning.

Party of four, two couples, made reservations. Restaurant was not crowded, our table was set and ready for us. Waitress was attentive. Pasta special was said to be very good, hamburger was good. Turkey reubens were good but a bit disappointing, basically turkey deli sandwiches with pickle and chips.

Amazing experience as usual. The cucumber gazpacho soup was absolutely delicious. Cheese board was incredible. Outside seating was delightful. Everything was on point. And, of course, our server Mary is the BEST. This is one of the best restaurants in the area...period.

My family has dined at Twelves many times over the years and we continue to experience the best in food, service and staff friendliness each time. Last evening, Quinn was our server. He was very professional and accommodating to small changes we wanted to make in our orders. With my ribeye steak, I asked to switch the collard greens for grilled oyster mushrooms that was accompanying another menu item. No problem and they were the best grilled mushrooms I've had. My daughter has a problem with garlic so he asked the chef to develop a tasty substitute for the garlic-containing one on the menu item. It was perfect. We will be back soon.

Love the food and service. Would love to see the walls painted such as a deep garnet red or terracotta orange. The halibut was divine and the Parmesan crusted chicken is still on the menus which my husband and I both love.

Nice to return to indoor eating. Made reservations online.
My friend kept forgetting to make requests, such as no crab in mushroom soup but not a problem since our waitress was understanding and accommodating!
I love the mushroom soup. Just the right thickness, creamy, lots of mushrooms and like the added crab.
This time selected the portabello mushroom sandwich with figs and goat cheese, sort of saucy. Tasty.
Never disappointed and would return again. Maybe next time, come for dinner.

Twelves always serves fabulous meals. Their servers have always been great as well. The only issue we had was two tables talking loudly back and forth to each other in a small room that went on for a while. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and have eaten here several times while visiting our daughter and her husband. We now moved to the area and Twelves will definitely be one of our go-to restaurants!

We had dinner out to support a local restaurant who supports local farming. We had a good time in a well spaced out environment and had a delicious meal. Our server was friendly. If you want a good meal and you want to eat in, this is the place!

Food is great. Very tasty, well prepared, properly seasoned & beautifully presented. Waitress & food staff were terrific, but the wait time between appetizers and the main course was almost an hour. It was not particularly busy inside. We were sitting outside and no one came to check on us, or explain why the order took so long.

This is the top of our list of local favorites. They have kept up their high standards even with these difficult times. My wife is celiac so she needs gluten free food and Twelves is always ready to accommodate. Plus they have the best crabcakes we've ever had and they are gluten free.
