We both ordered the seafood platter and couldn't be happier. Everything was crispy and not soggy. The service was a bit slow and disappointing. The bartender was engaging and there were alot of locals which is usually a good thing.

I thought the fish and chips was excellent. This was as close to Ireland as I've had in the states. French onion soup was good as well.

Reliable comfort food in our hometown pub. Between 161 and South Street on the west side (where the old Worthington Hardware used to be). Bottomless fish and chips anytime truly a delight, but so good you're too full for more. Salads good and beer cold....More

Great American-pub menu, relaxing atmosphere, top-notch service. Of all the Old Bag of Nails locations, this is my favorite. Although, because it's a narrow establishment, it's not ideal for large groups during busy hours.

We would eat here more often if there was better parking. The food is consistently good no matter what location we eat at. We love the vegetable kabobs. I always order the broiled fish.

Can't beat their fish & chips. Sometimes the "old reliable" is just what you need. Nice beer selection. Our service is always quick & efficient. Nice cozy spot in Old Worthington.

Never had a mediocre or bad meal there. Also, there are lot of interesting people. A sense of community.
