    Union City Grille: Soft, quiet and romantic

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hours:
    11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 5-11 p.m. Monday through Friday, 5 p.m.-11 p.m. Saturday.
    Casual City Dining Featuring Contemporary Cuisine With An Italian Flair
    I find the food is American. The chef is new, rumor has it the Chef from Columbus Inn is now the Union Chef, and it tastes like it. Fine dining, easy, free parking and great service and atmosphere make this a special occasion restaurant! Take a date there, the romance factor is high with the lighted glass vases, and comfy booths. The mashed potatoes tasted like home made, and the lighting was soft and warm. They do not have a web site...why?

    JOE'S CRAB SHACK: Joe, where's the Crabs???

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The server's don't dance anymore, and they have a surprising lack of crabs on the menue at Joes "Crab Shack". I hear Delawarians often remark about this irony. Here in Delaware if you scream crabs, you better come with a bushel. (That's about 4 dozen). Ummmmm. The more Old Bay Seasioning, the better!

    Favorite Dish: Only time to go is $11.99 for 33 Shrimp deal.

    Coconut Shrimp was AWESOME!!!
    Mike is anti seafood. He feels better about killing little chickens for sup, than some cute fuzzy little shrimp, so he opted for the chicken.
    It was the best he had in a long time (and this guy keeps Perdue in business) so expert, you better believe it.

    Bangkok House: Best Thai Food in North Delaware

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So great! This is a very authentic Thai Restaurant. The people who own it close on a whim and go toThailand when ever they feel the urge. Even people from Thailand eat here because it reminds them of home.

    Favorite Dish: Peanut Sauce and Chicken Panang are works of culinary art. Yum-Sum like it hot! I believe this is a family owned operation, two women doing everything so go with time and patience on you side. The chicken curry is very nice too. Get three or four things and share. The folks who run this place have an all you can eat Thai buffet at the Riverfront Market during the week also. Very reasonable at lunch, dinner is a little pricy, but worth the expense.

    Panera Bread: More than just Bread

    by Rhondaj Written Dec 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very nice ambience. To the left of entry are 4 or 5 computer tables. (bring your own)
    Straight ahead the baked loaves of bread and take-out counter.
    To the right, the eat-in order area, with cozy sitting tables, a few leather chairs and a fireplace.

    Favorite Dish: Of course bread is their specialty! Soups w/bread and sandwiches made of your choice of bread is the main idea.

    The Dog House: Always Busy

    by Rhondaj Written Aug 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A small place, and it is always packed. Seating is at a long counter, probably about 20 seats total. You are facing the grill, watching the workers do their thing. Since seating is at a premium, lots of people just order takeouts. You don't get a number, your order is called out by what food you ordered, such as: "Dog with mustard, onion, and relish!"

    Favorite Dish: Hot dogs, anyway you like 'em. They are foot long, sliced down the middle and grilled. Also, just as popular, are the cheesesteaks.

    Not much parking room

    Panera Bread: You Pick Two

    by penumbra Written Jul 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who can resist the smell of freshly baked bread? Busy at lunch time, make sure you get there before noon to get a seat. As you look through the list of soups, sandwiches and salads, taste a free sample of bread from a basket near the counter. In a hurry? You can also get it to go.

    Favorite Dish: It’s hard to make a choice, so try the “You Pick Two” for US$6.19 (@2005). Choose from half a sandwich or half a salad or half a soup. Working my way through the menu, my favorite so far is the Asian Chicken salad and the Hot Smoked Turkey sandwich.

    John Harvard's Brew House and Restaurant: Fresh Beer

    by dlandt Written Apr 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is a little more expensive than I usually like to see, but the fresh beer makes up for it. Its one of those places that started life as a brewery and expanded to include a restaurant with typical tavern food. They have stuff like burgers and hot wings, up to pastas and steaks.

    Favorite Dish: The beer is excellent. Nothing like lager fresh from the vat.

    Romano's Macaroni Grill: Wine sampling....and dinner too

    by Rhondaj Written Feb 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dinner for three including wine(s) for the Mrs., beer(s) for the Mr., and soda for the kiddie; 3 entrees, 1 dessert, and 1 cappacino, all for about 60 bucks---not bad!

    Atmosphere here is very nice.
    Service-attentive--no empty glasses or long waiting for meal or dessert

    Food comparable to any other nice Italian food-have to come back and try the brick oven pizza!

    Favorite Dish: I like the wine sampler--it changes--so get the list. 3 wines, 2 oz. each--this week they were all reds--my favorite--boy does my heart feel healthy!

    ready to pour...

    Joe's Crab Shack: Joe Don't Know Crabs

    by Rhondaj Written Nov 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the side of the building it says:
    Joe Knows Crabs.
    But he doesn't!
    This place doesn't even carry local seafood. Have you ever eaten the frozen seafood of Mrs. Paul's? Well, same thing.

    Couldn't you kick yourself when your instincts tell you to leave and you don't? I got a bad feeling right from the start. We were seated promptly, so I shouldn't have been concerned, but I was. Shoulda' been too. Sat there forever! Finally turned out, our table had no waitress/er. But it wasn't just that. Everyone was getting slow service. I saw a lot of unhappy customers. Great view, but ya' gotta' have more than that Joe!

    Up the Creek: Where Bikers and Boaters Mingle

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My sister discovered this place while jet skiing. The clientle are an odd mixture of motorcyclists and boaters, but it seems to work. Try this place out on a hot summer's day. A band plays in the afternoon. Be sure to feed the ducks and geese waiting in the waters below. Very relaxing afternoon...

    Iron Hill Brewery: Nice River View, Beer, and Pizza- ah, NIce!

    by Rhondaj Updated Nov 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've been to the Iron Hill Breweries in West Chester and Newark, and this one is just as fine, with the added benefit of a spectacular view of the Wilmington skyline. There are two outdoor eating areas. On ground level and a second level balcony. The interior features are inviting, with rich mahogany paneling, slate flooring and copper ceilings. The second floor has a bar with a few televisions for sports watchers.
    Service is friendly and efficient.

    Favorite Dish: Good sandwich choices and brick-oven pizza. Lots of brews to try out!

    Washington St. Ale House: Lots of microbrews!

    by Rhondaj Updated Aug 4, 2003

    Inside/outside seating. Outside deck is nice, but not much of a view. Inside has oak floors, exposed brick wall, very cozy and relaxing atmosphere.

    Here's a list...: Vegetarian Places in Wilmington

    by hochbeam Written Nov 28, 2002

    I've recently gone (pesco-) vegetarian, so I thought I'd list the other places, reviewed here, that are vegetarian-friendly. They include: Capriotti's, Bangkok House, China Royal, Taste of India, India Palace, and Just Desserts. Restaurant 821 will also acommodate vegetarian requests. The chef improvised a great pasta primavera the last time I went there.

    Just Desserts Cafe: My choice for Sunday brunch in Trolley Square

    by hochbeam Updated Oct 26, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On Sunday mornings, I sit here with my paper and enjoy delicious coffee and a very fine piece of quiche, or eggs and hash browns. The service is always cheery. I carefully avoid looking at the baked goods when I'm paying, because they're overwhelmingly tempting. They've now expanded their hours to include dinner, and they serve a nice vegetarian lasagna. Check the web site for special events as well.

    Favorite Dish: The quiche has an outstanding homemade quality. Selections change from week to week.
