Solid Food with below average service

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. It is American food at it's finest, and even has cupcakes on the menu for dessert. I have eaten here many times and the food has never disappointed. The one variable is the service, as it can range from good to horrible. It... read more

My friend and I were in Dover this weekend and looking for somewhere different to eat. We saw this place and decided to stop. The burgers were very good. I had the Lunch Counter special, it was delicious! I also had the homemade potato chips with come with their homemade dip and my friend had their Teriyaki burger and onion... More

Burgers and martinis each unique. never had a bad meal or drink here. we go on a quarterly basis. Swedish fish martini is wonderful and if you ask nicely, the wait staff will grab some swedish fish for the grandchildren. Love the Tuna steak burger, always cooked to perfection

We found this restaurant from looking on trip advisor, and I'm glad we ventured in. From the outside it didn't look like anything spectacular, but the inside was a nice surprise. Lovely beer selection (my husband especially loved the ace perry ale), and knowledgeable wait staff. I have many food allergies, and the waitress was able to address my needs.

Good Burger Restaurant, not your typical of a burger joint. Menu has an extensive array and variety of burgers. There is sure to be something there for you. Ever so slightly pricey but no too much. Get there early, you may have a short wait.

Six of us drove up from Baltimore on motorcycles. (Take Rt. 9 to 311) We all chose a different burger and everyone enjoyed them very much… The food was hot, fresh and very tasty. R55 has a great beer selection and our waitress was awesome too.

I went to restaurant 55 for lunch today with a friend of mine. She had the Cuban Burgan (special of the day). When the burger arrived it had a sour smell. We called over the waitress and told her. Her response was “oh, OK” and she took away the burger. No sorry, or nothing. Then she tried to charge me... More

I came here in search of "the best burger I'll ever have" and was sadly disappointed. Are they bad? No, by no mean is it close to bad. I would say there are better burgers in town so don't go all in here.

By far the best burger I've had in a long time! Cooked just right, juicy and the fries were hot and fresh tasting and were served with a little malt vinegar on the side... The bread and butter pickles tasted homemade.

Great burgers, good beer, and great choices. Everything we had was good. Unique "diner" style atmosphere. Would have loved booths, and more wood, less diner feel, but doesn't take away from the food. ANY burger selection is a winner, the chips are incredible, and you must try a cupcake, they are always selling out early. Smaller place with strong local... More
