Where to Enjoy NFL Sunday Funday 2015

Don’t just wing it on game day—pick the best hot spot for your viewing pleasure.


Published:


Football season is officially in motion, and no matter what team you are rooting for you don’t want to miss a game. And let’s be honest, nothing pairs better with football than a cold beer and wings. But deciding which bar to settle in to for the game is a big decision—some have more TVs, others have better food and drink specials. Delaware has some obvious choices for sports hubs but there are some other bars statewide you may have never even considered. Check out our list for some of the top hot spots around town.

NEW CASTLE COUNTY:

Famous Joe’s Tavern – Wilmington
1812 Marsh Road, Suite 405
439-3586

Ever noticed that sometimes your definition of the “big game” is different than the local cable provider? Well that’s not an issue at Famous Joe’s because with their NFL Sunday Ticket package you can watch all the games you want while slurping down $3 drinks. Check out their other Famous locations with the Sunday Ticket at Tim’s in Wilmington and Tom’s in Hockessin.
 

BBC Tavern & Grill – Greenville
4019 Kennett Pike
655-3785

BBC shatters any preconceived notion you ever had about a sports bar, and that’s in part because it’s anything but. Their laid-back yet swanky atmosphere gives the football watching experience a makeover. They may be the local experts on pretzels, but on football Sundays they offer much more with 50 cent wings, half price nachos and $3 Miller Lite drafts.
 

Stewart's Brewing Company – Bear
219 Governors Place
836-2739

Switch out your domestic beer for one of Stewart’s handcrafted brews on game day. With flights of eight 5 ounce tasting glasses for $10, these craft beers are an affordable yet unique alternative to go along with NFL Sunday.
 

James Street Tavern – Newport
2 W. Market St.
998-6903

With 14 HDTVs in this newly renovated tavern, you’ll practically feel a part of the game with James Street Tavern’s NFL Sunday Ticket package. Try a helping of their nachos to compliment their wide selection of local beers on tap.
 

McGlynn’s Pub – Newark
8 Polly Drummond Shopping Center
738-7814

McGlynn’s was established in 1983 and has provided Newark (and Dover) residents a place to call their football viewing home for decades. Voted Delaware’s favorite neighborhood restaurant, McGlynn’s friendly atmosphere is contagious and the 18 televisions also don’t hurt when it comes to NFL Sunday.
 

Ernest & Scott Taproom – Wilmington
902 N. Market St.
384-8113

Aside from beer, NFL games are also on tap at Ernest & Scott Taproom. There is no shortage of beer with $6 Bud Light and Yuengling 32 ounces pitchers, football and good times at this local favorite.
 

KENT COUNTY:

Sport Zone – Smyrna
235 Stadium St.
223-1808

Dedicated sports fans from all over the area flock to Sport Zone for football Sunday and beyond. This sports bar has the Mercedes of football cable packages and $2 select drafts to wash down their popular 60 cent wings every Sunday.
 

Golden Fleece – Dover
132 W. Loockerman St.
674-1776

At the Golden Fleece, Sunday is the best day of the week. Because on Sundays, customers get half off their first drink when they come decked out in their favorite NFL team’s apparel. Need more convincing? You can bring your own food to snack on at the bar 365 days a year.
 

Murphy’s Race/Sportsbook & Grill – Harrington
18500 S. Dupont Highway
(888) 887-5687

Within Harrington Raceway & Casino lies a sports oasis with 50 big-screen TVs and an all-you-can-eat buffet for $7.25 during the first half of all football games. It’s a football fanatic’s paradise.
 

Touchdown – Dover
1666 S. Dupont Highway
674-0975

Touchdown is a sports bar fundamental in Delaware. Although every NFL game is shown, football is not all this establishment offers. Their food has often been referred to as one of Delaware’s “hidden gems,” with their famous cream of crab soup taking the cake.
 

SUSSEX COUNTY:

The Big Chill Cantina – Rehoboth
19406 Coastal Highway
727-5568

Nowhere else in the state can you enjoy the outdoors and the big game at the same time besides at the Big Chill. Watch the game outside (or indoors when it gets colder) or head to Taco Reho, the food truck right outside, to grab as many tacos as you want—no one is counting.
 

Green Turtle – Lewes
17388 N. Village Main Unit 21
644-6840

There are three words everyone loves to hear—half price wings. The Green Turtle of Lewes is your go-to place for football Sunday. A new addition at this chain is their NFL sports wagering every game day.
 

Longshots – Milford
207B NE Front St.
725-5917

A new player to the sports bar game, Longshots is in their second year of making sure no Milford resident misses their favorite football team play. Longshots boasts jersey giveaways on Mondays and 10 TVs everyday.
 

Arenas – Rehoboth
149 Rehoboth Ave.
227-1272

Four reasons to make Arenas your game day destination: $2 Miller Lite cans, $3 Fireball shots, $4 pints and the ability to watch any NFL game you want. Cue “easy” button.
 

Grotto’s – Seaford
22925 Sussex Highway
628-2800

What comes to mind when one says Delaware pizza? Grotto’s of course, but they are more than just a pizza place. Make next Sunday a “funday” and head to Grotto’s for pizza, beer and football—or as most people call it, a trio made in heaven. Special deals include $3 22-ounce Coors Lite and Miller Lite drafts and a weekly raffle, concluding with a mini-fridge giveaway. Other Grotto’s locations in Delaware with a sports bar include Dover, Lewes, Long Neck, Milford, Newark and Wilmington.

 

There are 256 games in a regular NFL season. Don’t miss a single one by establishing your Sunday roots now while the season is still young.
