It's in the Casino

We initially had a hard time finding the restaurant because it is located inside the casino which is part of a huge property incorporation a large hotel and a race track. It was certainly unexpected in sleepy Delaware. The restaurant is nicely appointed and had a nice selection of oysters. I... read more

Located in the Dover Downs Casino this seafood restaurant has different daily specials. We went on a Tuesday night when they have an all you can eat crab legs special after 4PM for $24.99 per person. They keep them coming till you tell them to stop.

Several friends met for dinner here. Nice setting, friendly staff. They were very busy that night, but efficient and very pleasant. The food was just ok considering the price tag! It wasn't bad but not outstanding. I would eat here again to see if it is any better next time.

My family and I usually come for the "buck a shuck" oysters on Mondays, nice drink and appetizer specials as well. The James River oysters are sweet and meaty, delicious! The specials are served only on the patio: a nice view of the slots and Colonnade. It can be a bit pricey outside of the specials but the food is... More

They advertise "Buck a Shuck" for Mondays and other special occasions. Be careful as all oysters are not $1 each and 'L' doesn't seem to mean large. Wednesday night is team trivia and if you don't play, you might want to dine elsewhere. The 'MC' is neither very funny nor very bright.

We visited a few years back and were not impressed then as the prices were high and the quality wasn't. This time we were pleasantly surprised as the quality was very good and the prices were justified given the location and fresh seafood bar. My wife had lobster tacos and I had the fish fry dinner. Hers was great and... More

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