Excellent service, decent portions, nice setting, clean restrooms, and a willingness to please were easily among the most definite assets of this dining establishment. The seafood was well worth the trip and its central location makes it possible to start here and head to the shore, to the raceway, the casino, or touring the First State's museums. I was please...

Jocelyn came to our table with a disinterested attitude, looking around instead of being engaging. We ordered, but when the crab cakes arrived they were fried instead of broiled.

I live on Cape Ann, MA. We have the fishing boats offloading fish at the docks every day. We buy from the boats!! Cool Springs fish is as good as we get, just off the boat!!!!! I don't know how they do it but man was it a great night out eating.

Enjoyed the tuna steak, prepared as ordered. Wait staff very friendly. Felt it was a little pricey, so will not go too often. Store front type restaurant. Owner chef also operates adjoining American style establishment.

Spent a night in Dover and gave Cool Springs a try based on location and what we were in the mood for. Crab cakes for dessert which are fairly small but fantastic. The two dinners were baked stuffed flounder and baked stuffed shrimp. The stuffing is beautiful lump crab meat not a bunch of breading. The dinner salads were good.... More

On one of our local pass throughs, we decided to try something other than the casino venues. Saw this as rated well. WOW! What a nice find. Strip mall location. Very busy. But got seated immediately. Friendly and attentive service. Angela was busy, busy, but she kept a close eye on us as we progressed through the meal. Wife's seafood... More

My husband and I try to go to Cool Springs atleast twice a month. The food is always outstanding, the daily specials are very unique and have always left us extremely satisfied. We enjoy sitting up at the bar and Mary has always made fantastic recommendations. Family owned, very friendly environment- you can not go wrong by eatting here.
