My wife and I enjoyed a great date night on a Friday evening. This being UofD territory, Klondike Kate’s can get really crowded during the school year, but this time we didn’t have to wait at all! The hostess and waiting staff are friendly, attentive (though at times busy). I got a Crab Bisque soup (cream based). I’m pretty picky about crab bisque, and this one did not fail to please! It’s a nice big portion for a “cup”. I ordered the fish tacos and my wife got beef fajitas with a salad. The food presentation is great (surprisingly for a college area joint) and the food was hot and tasty! The waitress kept our drinks topped off, and was within eye sight the whole time. We enjoyed the food, and got to enjoy a life musician on a guitar playing cool hits. The music volume was comfortable, so my wife and I could chat and enjoy our time together! We commented on the vintage stained glass windows onside, and I recall hearing stories of the long history of this location. Loved it.

World renowned nachos!! Friendly staff and good food that has been consistent over the past 15+ years. Great outdoor sitting that let you enjoy the Newark Main Street atmosphere. Very dog friendly and they will even bring a water bowl if needed!! I have also attended several private events and the private rooms and food have always been fantastic. Lastly, love the classic UD decor!!

Had a fantastic time sitting upstairs people watching all of the kids who are enrolled at ud and can't afford to or didn't want to go home for winter break. Beers were cheap and laughs were plentiful. Highlights of the night include a chick arguing with her boyfriend because he cheated on her. Or seeing a 100lb girl fall over by the bathroom and I think puke in the stairwell. Luckily the bouncers were on it. But they didn't even care to help her. After she attempted to stand up she managed to take a digger right into a row of chairs. I watched this unfold and thought to myself now they can redeem themselves. Nope they didn't do anything luckily my friend was there to pick her up and escorts her outside. Seriously what are you paying a bouncer for if they aren't gonna help somebody who's obviously wasted. Also got hit on a girl at the bar but my girlfriend really put the hex on that one. Will be returning in a few months because drinking really isn't my thing.
