Great burgers

Just had lunch and the black & blue burger exceeded expectations. The fries were killer as well. Extensive beer list both bottled and draft wish I could have had a few!

Had an excellent dinner here with visiting family. No one felt like a large meal and a fancy restaurant, and Restaurant 55 was perfect. An offshoot of one of our favorite seafood restaurants, it had long been recommended to us by neighbors. The burgers, toppings, beer selection were all excellent. And we loved the casual atmosphere and friendly service.

Lovely fish and chips with wonderful batter...my neighboring table recommended the fried anchovies as one of their favorites. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked delicious

Amazing flavorful burgers (cooked as ordered), hand cut fries, killer fresh chips with house made herb dip large enough for sharing and you can't forget creative cocktails and a long list of beer selections all served by efficient and friendly staff.Looking forward to my next visit!!

I ate here with my husband and really likes burgers. They were okay for the price. But I got upset when they put my straw in my drink for me right after putting some dirty dishes away! I don't think that's very sanitary!

I was told this place was the best but was very disappointed. The food was no better than your average bar/restaurant. The staff was not very friendly. The atmosphere was bland and dark. Overall the value was not great and we have found many places around town better.

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 out... off the beaten path, but... 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
