(page 36 of 170)
READERS, UPSTATE | Stanley’s Tavern
2038 Foulk Road, Wilmington, 475-1887
READERS, DOWNSTATE | The Starboard
2009 Highway One, Dewey Beach, 227-4600
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Washington Street Ale House
1206 N. Washington St., Wilmington, 658-2537
Here’s a novel idea: a legit pub atmosphere (lots of brick, wooden floors and exposed ceilings) and a selection of about two dozen great beers. There’s never anything too wacky among the regulars and seasonals from microbrews like Dogfish Head, Harpoon, Victory, Magic Hat and Boddington’s. Throw in a solid late-night menu. It’s no wonder Washington Street Ale House is packed most nights.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Finbar’s Pub and Grill
316 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-1873
At Finbar’s, it’s all about the marvelous bar itself, a restored piece from 1873 that was purchased in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. The oak beauty is fronted with marble and topped with mahogany—and more than a few glasses and bottles of Harp, Guinness, Boddington’s and Strongbow Cider. Gastro-pub grub is excellent.
