Good seafood for the location

This is a 4 star restaurant for the area. It's no Le Bernardin, but you cannot expect that from a restaurant in Dover, DE located in a casino. It has a nice atmosphere, the food is pretty good and the portions are a good size for dinner. The real deal is the kids menu. I ordered the fish and... read more

This is not the type of restaurant experience I would have expected from an Open Table associated establishment. I had the lobster BLT tacos. There was very little lobster, the bacon was slightly undercooked, and the tortillas were cheap and unpalatable. I also had a side of the Old Bay seasoned fries, which were bland were the seasoning was not... More

We once came here convinced we'd have a delicious and fun experience. Food, service and atmosphere were consistently great. Was a perfect stop on the road to Rehoboth beach. The last 6 visits have been bearable at best. Oysters that weren't shucked properly, service that felt awkward and sluggish, long waits for drinks, food, and check. Sadly, we must accept... More

I have actually been here a few times- the most recently last night. A friend had some gift cards and we ( Party of 4) were celebrating a birthday. The hostess was friendly, and asked us if we wanted to sit in an area where we could "talk." My assumption is that most people want to talk to their dinner... More
