Reviews for Charcoal Pit

It's been about 12 years since I've been here and today was my return trip. Unfortunately, it was a major disappointment.

It was 78 degrees inside. Turn on the A/C. Staff was ok at best, but my drink sat empty after I finished for the majority of our lunch. We were right next to the soda machine full review

Visited on the recommendation of a friend that grew up in Delaware. Good old fashioned sandwiches and ice cream.

I went to high school in Wilmington Delaware over 60 years ago when this place first opened. it was the cool place for kids to be then, and it didn’t disappoint on revisit. (Former president Obama went there on one of his trips to Wilmington.) The greatest part is still there: ice cream sundaes named after the local full review
