Great Burgers

Stopped in for a burger based on the reviews and it was delicious. Local ground beef with a great flavor. Tried the Santa Fe burger rare topped with cheddar, bacon, homemade root beer barbecue sauce and japs. Excellent! Great beer selection with many local craft beers on tap. Try this place... read more

Pretty on the inside but it seemed like they cared more about the look then they do about the taste of there food. Season your damn food.

Really good Italian sausage burger on pretzel roll. The French dip was so tender, it was one of the better that I have ever had. The silverware was a bit dirty, but we weren't using it anyway.

I read about this place in the Delaware Today magazine. I don't know what took me so long to check it out. Well, hubby and I went to Dover for lunch of a burger and brew! We were not disappointed. There were so many burger choices, but we ordered the burger with the Gruyere cheese and fried onions. I added... More

Excellent side of the road burger and beer spot with fresh meat from the local butcher.Great selection of microbrew beers both local and from around the country. Burgers were fabulous and service was good. Many unusual burgers and sandwiches to choose from.

Restaurant 55 in S Dover is a great place to go if you are looking for a burger. I had the cordon blue burger today which was very good but there were many more on the menu to choose from or today's special burger was the Elvis burger. I have been here several times and have always had great food... More

The Not Breakfast Burger was Delicious. .....Egg is a plus......easy substitution to Smoked Gouda Cheese was a plus with NO upcharge!!!.....If you order the Chips with the Old Bay tell them to go light......some pico de gallo also makes them Shine.....Great Service. Pleasant environment with an industrial feel.......yummy

If you like burgers and craft beer, you'll love Restaurant 55. The restaurant features 12 rotating taps at the bar along with over 35 bottled beers. I love the "sampler" when the bartender sets up six three ounce glasses (His choice). They use local suppliers as much as possible for the food and local breweries for a lot of the... More

You will not be disappointed! This is my Dad's favorite restaurant in the Milford/Dover area. The variety of Burgers is impressive (try the sausage burger!), the sweat potato fries are among the best you will find anywhere, and the soups are always fresh (Mom's Favorite). There is a refreshing contemporary, micro brewery atmosphere that will not disappoint. Highly recommend it!!!

This is our kind of place, great food and great beer! There's something for everyone, from burgers, fish, and vegetarian. I ordered the salmon burger and was pleasantly surprised that it was not a party, but a big fillet of perfectly cooked salmon. I followed advice of other reviewers and got the wasabi mayo on the side, it was spicy,... More
