Went here for lunch with my co-workers. The pros. Place had a nice atmosphere. The cons. Our service was terrible. We received our drink orders about 15mins after we ordered. We waited almost 1hr for our entrees and we were only a party of 5. My order was pretty simple, sushi for an appetizer and a cheeseburger for the entree.... More

I absolutely love this restaurant and eveything on the menu was really delicious. I sat outside the restaurant and it was nice to enjoy drinks and eat dinner there.

we stopped here for a spur of the moment lunch and I don't regret it. The service we received from our server, Diamond, was spot on. She kept our drinks refilled without prompting and was great at answering questions about the oyster selection. We went during happy hour and enjoyed $1 oysters that were great! No worries about upset stomachs... More

If you advertise "buck a shuck" night then don't you think you should have more than ONE shucker? My husband finally got his oysters as we were already eating the entrees, 30 minutes after he ordered them! The food was great but the oysters were what he came for.

At 7:30 on a Monday night friends and I stopped in for a late dinner after a having attended a get together. The place was not busy and they certainly had plenty of help. It took quite a while for a server to approach our table and then it was downhill from there. We had an excessive wait for everything,... More

We had lunch and Docs today for our year end Holiday Lunch. I am so disappointed that I did not get our Waitron's name as she was excellent. From the moment we sat down she was on the ball. We were a party of 10 and we did not have to ask for anything to be refilled or replenished. The... More

I've dined at the restaurant on several occasions and the food and service was great. I enjoyed the food and service so much I booked a company social outing for 35 people with a 4 course specialized menu. Jana coordinated the event; the selections were awesome. They even took special care of a guest with a special diet request outside... More

We decided to try this place again, after staying away because of lousy service. It's Lobster Month in their internet announcement. OK. The hostess stops her doodling long enough to put us at a table on the "porch" (viewing the casino). 5 minutes - 10 minutes - 15 minutes. We don't even get acknowledged. Back to the doodling hostess. She... More

I was searching for nice, reasonably priced place to have a meeting in Dover. I didn't want to go to the high-end Michele's in the Dover Downs Casino, so I picked Doc Magrogan's Oyster House. Overall, the service was good and food was fine. I liked the range of selections on the menu, although I found the wine selections to... More
