Stanley’s Tavern Has Been Serving Up Classic Comfort Food To Delawareans Since 1935
Delaware is a great state for foodies to explore! You’re never too far from a great restaurant, and plenty of our favorite dining rooms and watering holes have been around for generations. One of Delaware’s oldest restaurants, Stanley’s Tavern, deserves a closer look.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
When anyone starts talking about restaurants in Wilmington, it's only a matter of time before someone brings up Stanley's. This northern Delaware bar has practically been around forever, and it's truly a local legend.
Stanley's Tavern has been making their food from scratch and to-order for generations, which is part of what makes this Wilmington establishment a neighborhood favorite.
The tavern has been around since the 1930s, and it's a longstanding watering hole for friends and family to gather. This photo shows the familiar bar all the way back in 1947!
The interior of Stanley's has changed quite a bit since the early days. In 2019, the entire restaurant was renovated!
Don't worry, though - even though the restaurant has a new look, there's still always a seat at the bar for anyone looking to enjoy a drink, some food, and great company.
They're famous for their American-style comfort food, including nachos, burgers, and sandwiches. Their Ruebens are made with house-cured corned beef!
Stanley's is consistently mentioned in any conversation about the best wings in Delaware. They're saucy, crispy, and meaty - a perfect and classic bar bite!
By the way - if you prefer to sit at the bar, you're in luck! Their happy hour food specials are offered to bar patrons only.
This tavern serves more than just standard bar fare, though. Their crabcakes were recently voted as the best in upstate Delaware!
If you've got a sweet tooth, finish off your meal with their oversized cookie sundae or fried cheesecake. Treat yourself - you deserve it!
