We came here after spending several hours at the Dover Fourth of July celebration on the Legislative Mall. We left shortly before the fireworks were supposed to begin, not wanting to get trapped downtown afterwards, in the snarl of traffic. We were able to get a seat in the outdoor area, and could see the fireworks from our table! That... More

We go to McGlynns after the Friday Night truck races in Dover. Easy to get to, sits along Silver Lake, great atmosphere. Service can be a little slow, but the food is good -- pub fare mostly. Delicious Clam Chowder! I had what was like a French Dip with roast beef - except it came on an onion roll -... More

Six guys. We were there on a Friday nite for the prime rib special. 5 of us had the prime rib. We each got it cooked the way we asked. It was tender and flavorful. Service was excellent. Our server Suzie was friendly and attentive and efficient. Nice surroundings and an outside patio. I'd return there next time I'm in... More

Been to this place twice. That's all I'm giving it. The place is very nice and situated in a very nice area so you really have some high expectations when you enter. Unfortunately, the service and food DO NOT live up to the expectations. And on top of that, it's expensive too.

Yuck! Saltiest thing I have ever eaten. We decided to order them because they were different and they were awful! The popcorn was oily and also very, very salty. My husband and I love salt and it was too much for us. Atmosphere was nice. Super busy on Friday night and in a nice location. Service was good for as... More

Had dinner there two weeks ago. Love the rustic interior design. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good sized portion, fresh and tasty. Large bar and seating area. Large dining area was a mix of families, friends and casual business dining. Prices reasonable.

We went one night for happy hour. Met an old neighbor from 10 years ago. Pretty good bar snacks. Next time we went we had the prime rib special and fish and chips with friends. It was a good meal. The room was loud. Would ask to be in a less noisy room next time if we are with friends... More

I stopped here for dinner based on reviews of the restaurant. The night I went was all you can eat shrimp, so parking was very limited. It looks like it is located in some type of office building. I noticed on the menu that there were two turkey sandwiches, one was one dollar more than the other. I asked the... More
