Always enjoy good meal here. A little noisy if there's a crowd, but the good food and capable, friendly staff make up for it.

This old bank is a cool place and the ribs are too good! Great bar area with seats all around it. Will be back!

The food was great. Maisie waited on us & she was fantastic. We’ll be going again, hopefully in the spring once the patio opens.

From Our Editors

Inside what was once Delaware Trust Building at 9th and Market Streets in downtown Wilmington, arched 24-foot ceilings with baroque engravings soar above walls decorated with inlaid bricks and the decorative tops of beer barrels. Parting the air between tables, an iron-wrought tower’s rungs cradle weathered kegs. The 46-seat bar and 60-seat patio provide the venues for happy hours, business lunches, and family dinners. On Friday and Saturday nights, the taproom is filled with the sounds of up-and-coming local talent and local DJ entertainment. The barrels on display at Ernest & Scott Taproom reflect the founders’ passion for American craft beer, and are emblazoned with images of hops and the restaurant’s logo: a griffin extending its paw to high-five the inventor of hops.

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione curates the restaurant’s extensive American craft-beer list—a combination of standard national brews, rare local crafts, and cask-conditioned libations—which suits food pairings as well as the definition and standards of the Beer Judge Certification Program. This list features names such as Evolution Craft Brewing and Twin Lakes Brewery while keeping the brewers’ high-school nicknames a closely guarded secret. Ernest & Scott’s culinary crew led by Chef Dominic Fauser invites guests to sop up drinks with a pub menu focused on regional fare and recipes with a whisper of latin-fusion brought by sous chef Modesto. Plates tower with arrangements of Atlantic flounder and seabass, crab, and scallops, as well as brisket, short ribs, and Amish chicken.
