Followed the advice of others on Tripadvisor and am glad I did! Great resturant with a beautiful view of the lake! Food was very good and the service top notch! Very relaxing place to enjoy fine dining or a burger and a beer! Lots of specials and a very "happy" Happy Hour! Will be back again when in town!

My boyfriend's parents invited us out to lunch the other day. I had never been to McGlynn's before. The view was so pretty, right on the water. The food was really good, I ordered an omelet from their brunch menu, everyone else got sandwhiches.

We have been here before but it has been quite some time. The restaurant is very nice with fine appointments and a great view of the water. It is also one of the few places open on Monday evening. We enjoyed a simple burger and steak sandwich, respectively. Not bad but not great. Give it a try yourself to have... More

We ended up here the day after Thanksgiving. Loved the location with the view over the water, the interior is pretty cool, and the service was great, and they had some real good beers on tap. The food was good, but wasn’t exceptional, but still good bar food. The food is on the pricey side but the beer on the... More

My wife and I took my in-laws out for a birthday lunch today (Sunday). As my in-laws are locals this was the suggested place. We couldn't have been happier. Our server Katie O. took great care of us, was very familiar w/ the menu and was a pleasure to have wait on us. The bar - dining room is lots... More

I always like to ask a local for a restaurant recommendation and in this case, 2 locals gave the same reco. I'm glad they did. This place was awesome! Great service...better food...quick in and out for an exceptional meal. It's on my list of restaurants to hit again on my next trip to or through Dover.

Hands down the best bar/ restaurant in Dover, DE!! We love coming here on their half price burger nights. The tuna burger is amazing! Everyday they run a special! Service is awesome and so is their beer selection! We eat here at least twice a month!!

My partner & I have a longstanding agreement that if we don't have a good feeling about a restaurant, we'll leave before it gets worse, as was the case recently at McGlynns, where a huffy young hostess showed us dismissively to our table & the waiter never showed up because he was having such a good time yukking it up...

To start, the service wasn't great and our waitress seemed VERY distracted. I was looking forward to our meal, having read the reviews about this place. To say the least, I was highly disappointed. Our food was cold and the roast beef tasted as if it has been cooked days prior. I will definitely not return.
