Great food and staff VERY expensive

They picked the right location right in a casino. I dont think they would fare well anywhere else. The food is wonderful the staff is great but the price of the food for the amount you get.... lets hope the slot machines treated you nicely

The Irish should sue for defamation. Rancid Seafood, fryer oil has an overwhelming fishy aroma. The food literally got my dining companion sick.

I just wanted to say that unfortunately I have to use a feeding tube and couldn't enjoy this restaurant. But before that happened I did dine there and it was great. There is always a line so that says it all. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll love it!

I just want to talk about the garlic/butter wings. They are truly awful. Do not order them. Take them off the menu. I have no idea how anyone can screw up wings, but they managed to accomplish that.

Great food, great service! The crab cheese dip with the fries is the bomb! It came with the all-you-can-eat crab legs on Tuesday ! Went back two days later and had whole lobster and husband had shark kabobs!

My husband and I stayed at the casino over night. We got in and was looking for some drinks and something to snack on. Was pleasantly surprised to find a happy hour. It was right up our ally. The selection was good and portion size was nice for the price. I would go again to try their full menu.

I dined with a group of friends while staying at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. They have an extensive seafood offering including a raw bar. While the food was tasty I have to say that the service was extremely slow. The wine I chose was the Colores delsol Malbec. (7 oz for $9). It was a nice pour for the... More
