I usually like BBC but the food has gone very much downhill. The burger was tiny and the chicken cheeseteak was terrible. It had NO cheese, was dry and NO buffalo sauce. The sweet potato fries were luke warm. Also, I know its the holidays but the noise level was off the charts!! We also were fairly close to the front door which made it extremely drafty. Upon asking for a different table we were told no ( WE DID HAVE A RESERVATION as well).
This is a great place! The food is always good. Just wish the tables were not so close together.
No point in making a reservation. Our reservation was made for 7:00PM and we were not seated until 7:40PM. Very disappointing.
Table we were seated at was less than satisfactory.
We had dinner Friday evening having made a reservation on Open Table (nice). I ordered the advertised 10oz pork chop with crispy sweet potato fries and mango arugula salad. What came looked like two small pork medallions, on top of the fries, then topped with the chilled salad. This made the fries cold and soggy, the meat was cold…overall a disappointing meal. My husband enjoyed his meal. This was reported to the waitress twice. She said she would tell the chef.
Very good service
Christian was awesome taking care of our table despite having most of the patio. He made Emma feel extra special on her 9th birthday!
Energetic noise levels.
Ashley is a very Friendly, Efficient and Professional waitress.
Chose this restaurant for its ample outdoor seating, the setting did not disappoint. Food however was average. My friends and I had the stir fry and penne pasta entrees; perhaps one should stick with the pub fare as these dishes looked more appetizing, coming to the tables around us.
Service was very slow but perhaps a temporary staffing issue as is common these days...but we were at our table with nothing to drink but water for a half hour.
We ate outside. Very pleasant. Service was great. Food was good and nobody bothered us. We sat and chatted for a while. We all had salads and ine shrimp taco. Food and pricing were good. No crab, but I understand that there is a shortage. We will most definitely come back
Great meal and great service! Highly recommend
Food was ok.. service was kind of slow, especially considering the restaurant wasn’t crowded.
Good experience. Waiter very attentive.
Caprese sandwich was outstanding!
Always a great dining experience! Service was top notch!
BBC is my go-to place for lunch and happy hours and sponsorships for good causes. But, unfortunately, they are still trying to figure out dinner.
Most of the entrees are not very inspired and not up to the quality of their app and lunch menu. For example, one in my party ordered blackened salmon with veggies, rice and strawberry salsa. She said the salmon was perfect, but the white sticky rice was cold, and the salsa was some cut-up strawberries in a cup.
And that's OK, they don't need to be all things to diners.
I do recommend friends to go to BBC for lunch and happy hour.
Very nice pub with a good selection of appetizers, small plates, and main courses. Due to Covid, tables nicely spread apart. Unfortunately, nearest table, about 8 feet away had three of the loudest talkers ever. Though place in general was moderately noisy, these three were unbelievably loud. Fourth person at table was quiet(probably overwhelmed by the other three). Food was fine. Only issue was server did not ask if we wanted dessert, but did ask the other two tables nearest to us if they wanted dessert.
Thank you so much! I am so sorry you had noisy neighbors and that your waitress did not ask you about dessert. We will definitely make sure our staff knows to always, always ask!
Had a great dinner with my 2 little granddaughters, the waitress was very attentive.
Great place to have a meal during this transition to full open. Outside space is protected from the weather and potential cold . Service is good . I have been there for lunch, dinner and brunch !
Thank you so much, Carol!
Great Food and atmosphere great service good value
We love the BBC! Our waitress Julia was quite busy, as she had quite a few tables, but she was attentive and very pleasant. The shrimp tacos are so delicious!!
Thank you so much!
I had an amazing dinner with my sister in law on the patio last week. Service was good and the atmosphere was alive. I had the penne with asparagus and spring peas and she had the shrimp tacos. It’s was so nice to be outside and have someone else cook. The music was loud the tv was on and people were laughing and joyful. Just exactly what my head needed. And, I had a new plan for my own asparagus!
Delicious crab cakes...will certainly be looking forward to getting them again; no filler.
Thank you so much!
The service was sub par. We had reservations and then we’re told the only seating that they had for us was outside. It was freezing and the heaters didn’t help. They had a event going on this evening and that seemed to take priority over everything else. We won’t be going back.
Poke bowl delicious and healthy. Everyone enjoyed their meals (3)
We're so happy to read that, Diana! Thank you so much for dining with us!
Another great meal at BBC. We were thrilled to get a table outside under the tent, and only had to wait 10 minutes. Service was great, and the food was very good. We will absolutely go back!
Thank you so much, Mandy! We really appreciate your support!
As we start to get out and resume our new normal, this is my safer go to place. The staff is always nice and I am supporting a local place! I meet friends for lunch here. Outside can be a little noisy at prime times . The food is reasonably priced . I recommend the restaurant!
Thank you so much, Carol! Please come again soon!
We have been customers of the BBC for 4 years. We would go maybe 8 times annually. Until this recent visit, the restaurant had been a reliable, good quality experience. This time, nothing was good. Not the service, food, ambiance or noise levels. It was bad. So much, that we will not be going back anytime soon.
Very accommodating hostess; took note of our request to hold a table for us that we felt was a covid safe location.
Food was very good and fun atmosphere.
Wait staff service was just okay; super busy so understandable.
Food was very good and the place has a good inside ambiance, they had an outside set-up that was a little noisy. The service was a little slow but not bad slow, she had more outside tables then in. Overall is was a great meal experience.
Great salmon salad!! I always have a good meal here.
On this recent visit, I ordered a vegetarian dish with rice, vegetables and tofu. I asked for brown rice and they didn't offer it, so ok, white rice. But the vegetables were left over mush. I had expected crunchy carrots and broccoli that were fresh. Not reheated ones from yesterday. And tofu should be sautéed with a bit of a crisp. This chef just cut it in cubes and tossed it in. the texture was disgusting. The entire dish was inedible. My companions had ordered soups and split a London broil sandwich. It looked much better. Maybe it was just this one dish, but it certainly made me not want to return. I called the manager later that day and got apologies, but no offer of a comped meal to make up for the horrible lunch.
The best lamb stew I ever had! It paired well with the Guiness stout. My wife loved her burger!
This was our first time eating at BBC Tavern and Grill, won’t be our last time! Outstanding food and service! Highly recommend the scallops.
Fish tacos were terrific - big, perfectly cooked shrimps, great sauce & sweet potatoes. The sliders, salmon salad and crab cakes were also very good. Nice selection of beers and other drinks, not too long a list. Especially enjoyed trying Wakey Wakey Coffee Stout for the first time. We didn’t catch our server’s name but she was very attentive and helpful.
The only issue I saw was that, on such a warm sunny day the weather flaps were left down, which resulted in feeling we were seated indoors when our table was, technically, “outside”. My advice, if sitting outside matters to you, call to ask if the flaps will be down when you want to go there. Otherwise, enjoy!
Love all the new outside seating, lights, and fire pits. It’s one of the largest and nicest outside areas in Delaware. Great job BBC! Feet very safe too!
Some restaurants do not cook calamari well. It was delicate and crispy. Cooked to perfection not rubbery at all. Thank you, well done. We enjoyed. Waitress did not '
rush our table to order and we were with friends that we did not see for several
months. It was a great experience.
Have visited before and enjoyed BBC.
Seating was very bad. I sat 4-5 feet from my wife across the table and with the noise it was hard to hear her. We were seated very close to people standing and chatting at the bar and our table was continuously bumped by staff walking past.
The nachos meal was not up the standard that we had previously had.
The wings, although good, were not what we had ordered.
The on line menu did not work and staff seemed to be doing us a favor in supplying us with a paper copy. We only got one between both of us.
We will not be returning unless we hear that things have improved.
Always consistent. Quite a few menu choices plus daily specials.
