Was recommended by our son. Good advice. Food was very good, and we split 2 portions three ways, and had some left. Turkey was very good, and the seafood chowder was great.

My wife and I ate here with a couple we knew in Charlottesville, VA. They live here in New Castle and made reservations. This is the REALLY real genuine old style tavern with good ale and food. My wife had a spinach salad with sliced...More
