Cromwell's American Tavern & Taqueria is located in Greenville, Delaware, the gateway from Wilmington into “Chateau Country.” It has been operational since 1991. The inviting, upscale atmosphere, award-winning food, oversized drinks and friendly service welcome customers back time and time again. As the local paper said, “Don’t let the location fool you… at its cozy little heart Cromwell’s is a laid-back, sit-and-linger little bar and grill.”

The restaurant serves Mexican and American cuisines for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week. From tacos to burgers, fajitas to pasta entrees, salads to sandwiches. The menu includes refreshing cocktails, craft, import and domestic beers, hand-selected wines and desserts to complement your meal.

There are several museums close by, and the restaurant has tourist-friendly dining hours. Parking is plentiful. The restaurant accepts reservations, but also leaves tables open for walk-ins.

Had the half priced tacos and they were very good. Service was fast but we didn’t feel rushed to leave when we were finished.

Love this place. Outstanding menu. The best wait staff and bartender. Going there is like visiting “Cheers” in Greenville - they always remember you and you feel so at home.

Mostly Mexican menu with some authentic choices. There was a lack of entree choices on the American side of the menu. I always love the cozy ambience.

the service sucks, hate to see my server gossiping while I wait on a drink. I feel as if they don’t prioritize the customer at all

Nice place. Service was excellent and food very good, but a bit pricey, particularly the appetizers. They were as much as the meals.

Probably better for lunch if you are eating American. They really don’t have dinner platters. If you want Mexican fare, the menu is much more extensive for both lunch or dinner options.

Overall good place but was hoping they also hade more non-Mexican as well (particularly for a dinner).

We had a wonderful long lunch without any pressure to vacate our table. Each of the four of us ordered something different and were all very pleased.

The bartender/server is always on point. This time we both tried something different and special shout out to the chef who was cool with my no cheese flatbread. Delicious!! Can’t wait to have it again and visit again.

The server did not speak very good English. The food was okay at best,they did pour a nice drink but my friend had a beer that was expired in May of 2018. Do not think we will be back

Service was slow, seating cramped leg room in a booth and price was high for our meal. Second time there before a Natural History Museum event.

Met a friend at Cromwell’s to catch up. It is a small place, good food, variety of options is good. Service was good. Will keep it on my list of options.

Our group of six had a lovely time, Susan was great.
I especially like the round table. When there are more than 4 people it is a must for conversation, so thank you for having one!

With very little notice, Cromwell's - as always - delivered just the right lunch party!!! We had more people than expected, but no one ever let on that it created a stir. Lunch was delicious - conversation was easy - food came quickly and according to order. We enjoyed ourselves, and our lunch, and made it back to the office in time for the afternoon meetings. Cheers!

We enjoyed our visit to Cromwell's. The Grilled Cheese was as good as ever. Our server was extremely friendly and competent, and was spread between many tables; however, she managed it all very well!

Went New Year’s Eve. Everyone got specials. We started off with cheese nachos - served piping hot- cheese nice and gooey. Specials were excellent. Not a morsel let in any dish. Redfish was awesome. Can’t wait to go back!

I was home for Christmas and my sister and I went there for dinner. Service was very attentive without being hovering. We had burgers and beer but it was an exceptional burger! There are many menu options that I want to try. We will go back when I’m in town.

We enjoyed our meal! We like the ambiance of the back room away from the bar area. Our waitress was quite busy but she did - nice job seeing to our needs. Food was very good! We will be back!

The whole experience was disappointing from the initial call to schedule a reservation to the very end of the evening. We will not be going back there again. We are a group of local women who meet for dinner once a month at a restaurant we have voted on trying out. A lot of times we go again on our own with others and the word spreads. Unfortunately, this was not a positive experience so that will more than likely not be happening. Sorry Cromwell's because I have always enjoyed you in the past; very disappointed.

My only complaint was that a group at the bar were overly loud. Other than that, we really enjoyed our meal and experience. We will be back!

would not return or recommend Cromwells, Food was bland, cold and dry. Atmosphere was dark and I could clear hear every word the folks behind were saying. Although our waitperson tried to accomadate, bar service was slow .

Extensive menu, with a lot of Mexican items but many other things too. Very good quality food and the service was good. We finished dinner about 1 hour after we walked in, on Friday night, and the restaurant was full.

The staff didn’t get the reservation from OpenTable. So the tried making one from their phone and it didn’t work. So the took my name with the promise to validate it when it came in or set up a new one and validate. Today I got confirmation of the validation. THANK YOU Cromwell’s!

This is a good pub and makes no pretense to be anything but just that. So with that said the food is wholesome quite well prepared and good value for the money. As with all pubs/bars there are tv's everywhere one looks...but it is a BAR
