Casual atmosphere, great selection of food. Great wine selection. I can not say enough great things about this place. If you haven't been you need to make it a priority.

Love going to this place! We drive from the beach north to eat here. This place has got the best seared tuna hands down.

Excellent seafood. The bisque is amazing! I also recommend the bread pudding. Atmosphere is inviting. Space is limited so expect a wait on the weekends.

The seafood in this restaurant is the freshest you can find in Dover. It has been the top rated restaurant in the Dover area for many years. Don't miss the prime rib either

Nothing special inside, but comfortable. Our waitress, Tina, was AWESOME! We... More

I was not disappointed. Excellent soup for $6. My... More
