Cantwell's Crab Dip

Excellent experience. Easy ordering, easy pick up. Food prepared to travel perfectly. Delicious- shrimp fresh and great size. Crab dip hot hot hot and so good. Mushroom pizza scrumptious and even better the next day. Definitely will do this again.

Ribeye Cheesesteak

What a treat it was to discover Cantwell. The ribeye steak sandwich was superb and the service and atmosphere were most excellent. Best of Delaware on my 2020 list for sure.

Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich

Chicken was fried well, it isn't heavy the way some fried chicken sandwiches are. Super flavorful. Highly recommend!

Grilled Filet

My wife and I both ordered the Grilled Filet, one medium and one medium rare. They were the best filets we have ever had. Everything was perfect. Try it before the Summer menu goes away.

Lobster Arancini Cajun Aioli

We stopped at Cantwell's Tavern for lunch today. I ordered the Lobster Arancini. The portion was generous with five servings. They were absolutely delicious. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, with delectable lobster meat throughout. The Cajun Aioli was a great accompaniment. Not too spicy, just the right amount of spice to enhance the arancini. I hope this will be on the fall menu also. If not, I'll be back soon for some more!

Homestyle Meatloaf

I had this for dinner 2 weeks ago. It was an awesome dinner. The meatloaf was a large portion, moist and cooked perfectly. The green beans and mashed potatoes were proportionally sized and the au jus was the perfect topping on this outstanding meal. Compliments to the kitchen.

Lobster Arancini Cajun Aioli

We eat at Cantwell's all the time, so we know their menu well. We were so sad to see the popcorn shrimp leave, but the lobster arancini is by far one of the best additions! We get it every time we come now. Perfect amount of lobster and great sauce!

Braised Short Ribs

The braised short ribs, over polenta with mushroom gravy and pea shoots, were amazing! The ribs were tender and well seasoned and the polenta with mushroom gravy was yummy. This was our first time, for my birthday, and we will return!!

Grilled Oysters

On a recent trip to Cantwell's Tavern, I ordered the Grilled Oysters. They were among the bet grilled oysters that I have ever had. Bathed in a garlic and herb butter, and topped with crispy bacon and Parmesan cheese, I almost ordered a second helping! The oysters were plump and juicy and the butter had a heavenly taste. The bacon was added afterwards which was a nice touch. It was so crispy, done perfectly, not like when it is actually grilled with the oysters and sometimes burns. I hope this item will be a staple on the menu!

Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich

When it comes to lunch or dinner, there is nothing quite like the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich from Cantwell's Tavern. The chicken is lightly fried to a golden brown,, the pickled jalapenos and mayo are spicy enough to give the sandwich a kick and the coleslaw helps to cool down some of the heat. This is my "go to" order and a must-try for anyone who wants to have the best chicken sandwich in town!
