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

Every Monday most oysters are $1 each. Appetizers are half price and the beers are great. Since the restaurant is at the Dover Downs Casino you can eat and gamble when you're done.

Had date night with my wife and have wanted to try Doc Magrogans for some time. Had an early dinner so there was no line. Food was great, atmosphere what you see is what you get. The only issue was service was a bit slow considering the amount of people in at that time. However, our server did appear to... More

I was told to come here by the company I was visiting. The main reason was $1 raw oysters on Monday. They had a nice selection of oysters to consider for just a buck! They are of a good size and nice condiments for the oysters. Do not, I repeat do not sit in the bar! I was there nearly... More

My boyfriend and I go to Docs whenever we want to have a special meal for a celebration or a date night. The food is some of the best we've ever had and we always have great and attentive service. Love this place!
