Come for a meal or meet friends for a drink. Pleasant surroundings and atmosphere. Drink specials and tasty Irish food. I enjoyed the traditional Irish breakfast. Excellent service.

Best breakfast in town for your buck. Plus a buffet to pick from. Great omelets. Service friendly & prompt.

I've been here a couple times before, usually for lunch or dinner. For this visit, we were here for breakfast. The choices were terrific. I often have trouble deciding, but their menu has some great combinations that made my decision easy. I had the Waffler ( I think that was how it was listed) which included a waffle, two eggs,...

I had the Shepherds Pie and my wife had the Beef strips for lunch and they were extremely well prepared. We also had side salads were very fresh with delicious Italian dressing. The waitress Lilly was delightful and very efficient. We ate outside and found the flies a little annoying, but they did not bother us enough to change our... More

I have had dinner here twice and the second time, a seared tuna in vegetables was very very good. Great service, cold Guinness, and perfect food. What else can you ask.

We stopped in here for a beer and a snack and, as usual, it was very good. The place has a pleasant pub atmosphere, a good menu and a full bar with, of course, lots of good beer. Either for a snack, lunch or one of their great Irish dinners, this is a good place.

Ok, so I have been three times this week. New to town and it is only 1.5 miles away. All the bartenders seem to know how to pull a good Guinness. The food is mediocre at best. The fish & chips, and Irish staple, was more like four fishsticks and some fries, for $10.95; I had a higher expectation of... More

I dined here with two colleagues. This is as close as you can find to an Irish pub in Wilmington. There is indoor and outdoor seating as well as seats along the bar. Portions are generous and the service is prompt and accurate. Our server, Dawn, was personable and efficient. Our food was delicious. We'll be back.

Second trip to The Harp was even better than the first. I branched out and had the Monte Cristo...it was just perfect! Also enjoyed a sweet treat from the bar that proved delicious. Absolutely worth the trip to a lesser traveled restaurant area in Wilmington.
