【閉店】Ernest & Scott Taproom
Permanently closed. Opentable needs to drop this.
Made the reservation, but when we got there, the place was closed .. for good. We later learned they closed 2 weeks earlier. Not a good way to start offa dinner and a show evening.
You need to update your website. Ernest and Scott Taproom has gone out of business
The restaurant is permanently closed!
Great service and atmosphere for our large party. Keep up the good work!
Good food. Service was excellent. Noise level is very loud. Ladies room needed attention. Toilet paper holders empty in 2 stalls but clean
Service was horrendous!
We had a 5:30 reservation and almost missed the 7:30 show at the playhouse because of the slow service. The food was terrific ,but the service put a damper on the evening. The manager compensated us on the bill, which was a nice gesture.
Overall had a good experience. Enjoyed the buffalo roasted cauliflower and pan seared mahi mani. Bartender made a good Cosmo. Liked the atmosphere. Would definitely return.
I enjoyed the new menu. There were many options available. The service was very good. The location is convenient to entertainment activities in the area.
When we arrived, having made a dinner reservation, the noise from the DJ was so loud that it was impossible to even hear the host speaking with us. We asked when or if they very loud noise was going to go away and we were told that it would be ending at about close of business that evening. We left. It’s nice to have music in the background and it’s nice to have an upbeat tempo in a restaurant. It is not nice when it hurts just to walk in the room and it will be absolutely impossible to have a conversation with your dinner meat. This was at 6:45 PM on a Saturday night.
was there on 10/25 at 6 pm to eat before a show at the grand. I guess there was going to be a dj there later on. the background music (rap) was so load we could not hear each other at the table. regret even ordering. wanted to get out of there asap as we were getting a headache. food was ok.
A group of us had an early dinner before a show at The Grand. We had drinks and a selection of appetizers and burgers. The food was good. Our server, Sherry, seamed a bit distracted and a couple of different staff got our drink refreshes. We've been here before and will dine again.
The appetizers were large portions. And our waitress was kind enough to allow us reduce my entree order after receiving the appetizers.
Every time I go to E & S I have a great meal and enjoy the atmosphere. This time was no different. We went ahead of a concert and it was perfect. Quick and attentive service and delicious food and drink.
Convenient to Opera House for pre-show meal. Cleanliness of table area was fair, rest rooms poor. Food was very poor. Sent one meal, chicken panini back - chicken was burned black in the fryer as was the bread in the panini machine. Hamburger was overcooked on the flat top, very crusty and dry. Not an enjoyable meal too start a night out. Would not recommend
We were not impressed the first time we ate here but this time was so much better and we'd definitely eat here again. Our server was wonderful too!
Lunch is great on the patio. Nice to take in the city and enjoy a nice meal and a cold beverage.
Four of us got together for dinner and overall enjoyed our meal. The beers on tap could have been more varied. The combination appetizer had good wings and hummus, but we did not like the pineapple in the guacamole. The tropical salad was fresh and a good mix of flavors and the was very large and the steak, chorizo, black beans were good but needed additional sauce and flavors.
Good Location; Menu with options, but the interior appears rundown. I visited on a Friday afternoon, so it was pretty quiet. The expansive bar had about 4 people. What made it weird was the decor with curtains and mismatched furniture and a seating area on another side that was hidden from view by perhaps some paneling? The front reception area had a bulletin board that looked like a college dorm. As I said, it was weird.
The food was American flair with a twist. Guacamole with pineapple, avocado hummus, fried plantains, etc. I only got appetizers, no entrees or alcoholic beverages.
We went on a Tuesday for their taco special. We ordered 5 tacos between two people and that was plenty. The taco's were stuffed full and very flavorful. I would for sure go back again.
Food was better than I expected after walking in. Not a very good beer selection for a “taproom”. Not exactly sure what this place is trying to be - definitely more of a club/bar vibe than a serious restaurant. The AC was out on our visit and they were setting up for a concert or something while we were eating.
Food and service was great as usual. Only issue was the AC wasn't working very well and it was uncomfortably warm inside.
Perfect seating for our group of 8. Loved the pool table and basketball. Neat setup for a small stage; guy was setting up as we headed out. Happy hour had good choices and our dinner was great.
We visited this week before a show down the street. I had been in before for a quick drink and a bite in a similar situation but this visit we had a little more time.
We sampled a few of the delicious beers in rhe selection, but the real showstopper was the Cuban Bowl. That was just plain wonderful and is probably the reason we will return, even if it isn’t a pre-show stop.
Great service. Excellent food.
A Date with My Children and a Nite at the Queen!
The Food was Great but was a bit Confused as to why the Happy Hour Drinks excluded us from getting together the Friday Nite Half Price Appetizers.
We were disappointed, as the food was more bar fare than we expected. Service was spotty as well.
A great gastro pub. The chef's creations are truly a step above the competition. Great food and wonderful caring and knowledgeable staff. It was our first time eating there. Will definitely go back when I am in Wilmington.
Very good food, new twists on standard items like wraps, tacos, sauces for chicken dishes, etc. Even the ice creams for dessert were special with mango, pina colada, and coconut made in house. Our server, Sabrina, was friendly efficient, and just the right amount of attentive.
First time visiting this restaurant. It didn’t live up to the hype of the great brew pub in downtown Wilmington. Service was very slow although the waitress did admit she was new. I had two glasses of draft beer, and they were both warm. Had the taproom burger for dinner which wasn’t too bad. I won’t be returning.
Being a literary nerd I have wanted to eat at Ernest & Scott for many years now. Took a risk bringing an extra special first date there. The risk paid off. The hostess was very accommodating. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!
The hostess and our server were very friendly and welcoming. The service was on point. We didn't feel rushed but we also didn't feel like we were waiting too long for anything either. The food was very good, especially the parmesan steak fries, but I would not recommend the onion rings. They really had no taste. Not sure if it is the oil they were cooked in or lack of herbs & spices but I only ate a couple to know that I wouldn't finish them.
I was with a party of 5, where we all had either burgers and a side or a wrap and a side, and surprised that our bill came to $168. Truth be told, 3 of us had 2 alcoholic drinks each but it still seemed pricey for what we got.
Great place first time there had a good time will definitely be going back and recommend it
The location is great when going to the Grand for a performance. The service was adequate, with a lot of mix ups, not delivering items, & a long wait for one entree. It seems like the kitchen was having a difficult night. Our waiter, Sabrina, was efficient & got things straightened out. We have eaten here before and have been pleased.
I have dined at Ernest and Scott numerous times and usually had a positive experience, but on April 5, our server, Alex, basically ignored us and when he did serve us was rude. He claimed there was not a Friday night special for 1/2 priced appetizer despite the fact that they were advertised with signs in the restaurant and on the website. We requested to see a manager. After our food and drinks were finally delivered (almost an hour later) and consumed, the manager stopped by our table and also would not honor the three half priced appetizers we ordered because 2 people in our party had a beer off the happy hour menu. We asked to pay for the beer full price so we could have the appetizers half price but they would not comply with that request. They also would not take the stage door pass (15% off) that the Grand Opera house gave us. They are listed as a participating restaurant. The service was so slow that we were late getting to the Grand for an 8 pm show when our reservation was for a 6PM dinner. We wont be going back!
Third time eating at Ernest & Scott. Absolutely love the atmosphere and food! Especially the wings with bbq! Hubby and I are looking forward to our next date night here!
The area that the Tap room is in shares a heating system with other parts of the building. When we were there for dinner it was very warm until the restaurant opened up the windows on the top of the building to let some heat out. Good food, great service, yummy mixed drinks. We will try it again.
Happy Hour food choices were great and very reasonably priced.
Four friends and I had lunch before attending an afternoon play. We had a very nice time, and the food was considerably better than your usual Bar-food. Our waitress was friendly, efficient, and attentive. We all agreed we would enjoy eating here again.
We made the reservation on Open Table with confirmation but they didn’t have our rez when we arrived. However, they brought a table out of the back to accommodate us. That is going the extra mile. Service was very attentive.
