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.

    Mother’s Day. The interior of the restaurant needs work there is no ambiance at all. It’s like a cafeteria. Food is good but I don’t think I would go back. I would rather sit in a beautiful room with ok food.

    Nice quiet setting, attentive server made for enjoyable dinner. We like being able to bring our own bottle of wine when ever we go there. This time my wife enjoyed the duck and I liked the crab cake sandwich. (I messed up by not asking to not have the tarter sauce, but it was easily corrected). The bay seasoned fries were served hot temperature wise which I really appreciated.

    Five of us dined for dinner. Two had crabcake sandwiches and old bay seasoned fries. One person had the oyster special as a starter and the crabcake entrée, which consisted of two sizable crabcakes, parmesan risotto, and grilled asparagus. One person had the braised short ribs with smashed potatoes, carrots, and brussels sprouts. And, lastly, the fifth person had a cup of French onion soup and the pasta dish that was the special that night (spinach ravioli in a cream sauce with grilled chicken). All of the dinners were nicely prepared, and the oysters and the seasoned fries deserve a special shout out, but everything seems to be just a little bland. For example, cocktail sauce was not served with the crabcakes, the pasta dish could have used pepper and/or a sprinkling of parmesan cheese on the top, and a smashed potatoes just needed salt and pepper. Everything was fixable, but it was surprising that anything needed to be fixed, if that makes sense. If you love crabcakes, this is the place to go. They are sizable and well-made. This was a first time visit for all of us, and we would definitely go back. The lunch/dinner menu is extensive, but the dessert menu is not. Side note about the desserts - The sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream was very good, but spending five dollars for one small scoop of chocolate ice cream seems a tad steep, particularly since there’s an ice cream parlor right across the street. (We assumed they were almost out and just trying to split the last little bit between two people.) Everyone that work there, especially our server Rachel, was very friendly, helpful, and accommodating.

    The food and ambience were great. It was lunch and we ordered the chicken caesar wrap and turkey burger with fries - all was good and brought home half of both sandwiches. The only improvement/suggestion was if you order a cup of coffee they don't have a carafe to refill the coffee. The waitress took our half full cup away, filled it and brought it back. I didn't care for all the handling/traveling of the coffee cup it would be so much easier to have carafes for the wait staff.
