(page 76 of 170)
READERS, UPSTATE | Buckley’s Tavern
5812 Kennett Pike, Greenville, 656-9776
READERS, DOWNSTATE | Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats
320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-2739
CRITICS, UPSTATE | James Street Tavern
2 W. Market St., Newport, 998-6903
The folks at James Street understand that a great tavern is one with its neighborhood. That’s why they hold fundraisers for Minquas Fire Company, and when the siren sounds at the firehouse, Siren Special drink prices go into effect. There are game-time drink specials, a wine club, and live entertainment on Wednesdays and Saturdays. But what elevates the tavern is a menu with delicious entrées such as tender chicken Milanese, an impressive beer selection and fun events such as a recent wild game-tasting dinner.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Sambo’s Tavern
283 Front St., Leipsic, 674-9724
If Sambo’s Tavern were any closer to the Leipsic River, it’d be in it. The view of the waterway, sprawling marsh and local watercraft is only part of this landmark’s allure. There’s the comforting presence of a single pool table, a jukebox and a wall map that lets visitors mark the spot from which they hail. Of course, the servers are as friendly as they come, the crabs are as delicious as they come and the beers are always cold when they come.
