We come here a few times a year, and have brought out of town guests because this has a good variety on the menu, and is consistently good. My favorite is the chicken shish-kabobs.

Best patio hands-down among many great outdoor dining experiences in Delaware. Good food. Great steaks. It's just real good food~ not gourmet~ not haughty~ but well made Greek and American classics. Owner Vasili cuts the steaks and I have to tell you the filet mignon is one of my all-time favorites anywhere. The inside dining room is dark, classic, quiet.... More

Have heard about this restaurant so we decided to try it while we were in the area. We were one of the first tables seated that night, but it still seemed to take a while to get served. Our drinks came fairly quickly, but most of the things out of the kitchen took awhile. The potato skins were good and... More

In fairness this is my third and final trip to Bun's Restaurant. We tried to give it a fair shake but every trip has been consistently worse than the last. This may be a landmark in historic Delaware, but it's a terrible restaurant that serves reheated GFS dishes at exorbitant prices... Appetizers took 35 minutes and were wrong. (How do... More

We went to Bun’s for a birthday celebration. I had the stuffed shrimp and it was very good without being overcooked. The crab stuffing was a little bready, but it all had a good flavor. The zucchini side dish with a sprinkling of bacon was tasty, but the mixed vegies were cooked into oblivion and very mushy. My sister had... More

Even though the restaurant is short staffed right now, the service has been wonderful & the food is fabulous, especially the fudge cake, apple pie, and, wait for it . . . the BUNS!

The one thing that Buns has going for it is the bar/patio. This place is great for happy hour or to start your evening with drinks but I have yet to have a good meal here or to have anything close to attentive service. You are easily forgotten as the wait staff disappears to put your order in and may... More

We sat in the patio area. Our server was obviously handling too many customers. It took 15 minutes for my beer order to arrive. We ordered and the food was fantastic. The bread is excellent and everyone enjoyed their meal. However, there were six of us and not one of us was offered a refill of water. The 2 people... More

Took the scenic Scioto River route up to Delaware for lunch at Bun's on 11/5/15. Bun's has a relatively new, sleek bar area that can be opened or closed via cleverly placed garage doors. It was warm enough to open all the doors today! There is also true outdoor, patio-area dining, seasonally. Our server, Cody, was new to the restaurant... More

The people of Delaware will not be happy with this review because Bun's restaurant has been a local institution for more than 100 years. It will probably go on for another century but it will do it without my business. I live not far away and have driven past the Bun's arrow sign on the street arch many times but... More
