Cantwell's Old Fashion

My wife and were delighted to make our first visit to your restaurant this year on Thanksgiving. We've never had such a combination of welcoming staff, delicious food, and safety within the charm of a historic tavern. We started with oysters and they were so good we ordered more. The cocktails transported us back in time as we sipped them leisurely at our table beside the fireplace. Even though you had no idea it was our first time, you treated us like old friends. We will be back often.

Cream of Crab

Soup was excellent and had a crab cake with the soup as well as a glass of wine. Several ladies and I were visiting for the 2019 Historic Christmas House Tour. Upon returning home, I called my nephew who lives in Bear, Delaware and recommended that he dine at the Cantwell's Tavern.

Peanut Butter Bomb

This dessert is a tribute to those of us who love the combination of peanut butter and is simply delightful. Each and every bite made me happy and that is the true test of a delicious dessert. The combination of the fluffy peanut butter and chocolate cake layers dipped in chocolate ganache are truly heavenly. Highly recommend but please share with those you love.

Braised Short Ribs

I can't say I have ever eaten a dish that I haven't liked at Cantwells ,from the appetizers to main entrees. I particularly like the lobster arancini that is flavorful and has an appealing presentation. I always enjoy the oysters and also the assortment on the cheese boards. I have eaten with friends outdoors in the evening with a cozy warm setting with candles on our table and indoors in the main dining room for either the lump crab cakes or a tender grilled filet cooked just to taste or braised short ribs that melt in your mouth in a more intimate historic setting for a special occasion. Great restaurant!

One of my favorites to get each time we visit. Such a fun and tasty variety of meats, cheeses, homemade pickles, crackers, and more! Great to share as an appetizer for the table or to enjoy for a dinner.

Big Mac Burger

Big Mac Burger is very good! I've gotten it 3x now and have been very happy every time. I love their fries as well! My wife gets the Fried Chicken Sandwich every time we go and it's her favorite thing to get in the Middletown/Odessa area!

Farmhouse Burger

This is our favorite go to! It's a satisfying combination of beef, bacon and egg that melts together and never disappoints, especially after a long day when we just want to sink our teeth into "real" comfort food!

Pasta Pescatore

My husband and I have been coming to Cantwell's for a few years now. It's our restaurant of choice: Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, monthly date nights. This is my current favorite dish. Seafood is fresh and cooked perfectly. Pair it with a bottle of wine and you can't go wrong! Highly recommend.

An exquisite winter dish, full of flavor and colorful. The polenta complemented the rich flavor of the ribs, and the pea shots added a nice crunchiness to the dish. This place never disappoints.! Consistent excellence!!

Baby Back Ribs

I would describe the BBQ ribs as succulent. They were, literally, fall of the bone tender; and the BBQ sauce was pleasantly sweet with a nice balance of spice as well.

Portobello Burger

Absolutely love the Portobello Burger for finding vegetarian dishes at restaurants is not an easy find. The mushroom is always large and very fresh. We have loved Cantwell's Food for a long time and this is by far my favorite dish with it's delicious sauce. Thank you Cantwell's for always serving delicious meals in a lovely setting and this reviewer truly appreciates your vegetarian Portobello Mushroom burger so very much! I hope to see more vegetarian dishes in the future but please do not take this ever from your menu. Thank you!!

The Burger

I got the burger well done but it was still moist. The burger is charcoal grilled and excellent taste. I added bacon which only added to the taste experience. One of the best burger I've had. I highly recommend it.
