My favorite lunch spot in Dover

Best burger in town.... nice atmosphere, efficient staff and good food. I've have a number of their burgers (all great), their pork sandwich was really good and the french dip is tasty. You cannot leave there without a cupcake or a half dozen. If you are in Dover, you have to check this place... read more

We stopped by this family restaurant on our way up to Pennsylvania. The waitstaff are super friendly. Our burgers were very good. I had one with greuyre and house made thousand island (very mild; not too sweet or pickle-y). My boyfriend had the Bacon Burger where 50% of the patty is just that. Plus they put bacon strips on it.... More

The wait staff are very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. I just expected more from the food for the price. The chicken is bland. My drink was watered down. Will not be going back.

They offer a wide variety of burgers-beef, turkey, veggie, etc with an array of toppings. Choose something off the menu or build your own! The beer list is extensive and you can do tastings and flights. The wine list has improved recently, but could be better, IMO. They have a kids menu and recently took off the kids crab cake... More

Whether you take advantage of popular Happy Hour, or sit down in Comfortable tables, arrive early to avoid waiting to Satisfy your hunger. Bar Food goes well with West & East Coast Craft Brews. Choices include Wings in an almost white BBQ sauce, Crab Dip, Nachos, Beach fresh or Loaded FrenchFries. If you don't want to step Up to full-size... More

We go here often when visiting family. Love the burger selection and the fried pickles. The guys love the local beers. Atmosphere is clean and streamlined. A good choice in an area of mostly chain restaurants.

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. Watch out it gets packed on Friday nights.

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.
