Good food, good service

I liked their having hard cider on draft, The pan-seared scallops were tasty, There were a lot of oysters available for those who like oysters (not my favorite).

We went there for a bachelorette dinner. Waitress was very attentive and commented several times to my sister about her up coming wedding. Food was very good. Prices were equal to the area. Would definitely go back.

Expensive for just a little better than average food, portions not large. Ate at their location in Scranton, Pa also, as we used to live there before moving to Delaware. Same results.

My husband and I had reservations for our 25th wedding anniversary. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. Our waitress was very helpful. We sat in a booth which needed to be renovated. The seats were peeling. The food was just okay. I ordered the seafood combo. I did not like the coleslaw. The crab cake could have been better.

We went to Dover Downs with friends and had a great time! The atmosphere is nice, open tables or rounded booths which were intimate and cozy. My friend and I eat had a steamer pot, one from the north- king crab, one from the south- snow crab- each $25. They were wonderful- filled with clams, mussels, crab, potatoes and corn-... More

I was they there last September. The menu seemed different from the previous year. Completely over priced. Thirty dollars for a dozen oysters? Seriously? The rest of the meal was equally over priced and of poor quality. Going back to Dover in April. I know where we won't be going for dinner.

This is definitely a place you want to check out when you visit the casino in Dover Downs. The young lady working at the bar whom I think was name Heather made us feel like we were home. The drink she made were wonderful and she was so friendly. I will definitely visit this place again.

I stay in Dover quite frequently and I generally dine at Doc's at least one night. I generally always have the Seafood Cobb Salad, as it's delicious. I love the dressing, which isn't too heavy or overwhelming. The salmon, shrimp, scallops and crab blend well with the veggies. On the last two occasions my colleague and I tried the sushi.... More

We decided last minute to try this restaurant, so we did not have a reservation. We waited approximately 45 minutes before we asked the hostess where we were on the list. She said that our table was being cleaned off and that we would be seated shortly. About 20 minutes later, we asked again and were finally seated. The food... More

Went Sunday after Valentine's Day for their special. We both had the filet and lobster tail which was excellent. The creme brûlée for dessert topped off a perfect meal.
