If you are looking for good comfort food like a good burger with a generous portion of fries, check out the Restaurant 55. If you want to try something a little different, they have that on the menu too. The place was clean and the service was fast and friendly. The burger and fries were really good and the pepperoni...

This place was great! The Santa Fe burger was exceptional and the meatloaf stuffed with pepperoni was tasty and different! Cupcakes for dessert are a nice change at a restaurant. A modern feel to it with a nice bar and TVs...we had our eight year old and it was fine for him...casual dress and reasonable prices!

This restaurant is another hidden gem in the Dover area. It has some of the dreariest outdoor painting in a steel gray that has a military kind of look. It offers a wide variety of burgers, beers, and other sandwiches. The appetizers were decently sized. I enjoyed the fried artichoke hearts. The variety of designer muffins for dessert give this...

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant because we were in that end of town. The food was very good. Our server was pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere...well we mentioned that we felt like we were in a cafeteria, much like one you would find in a museum. It was loud. There were kids but it was the... More

Had the tuna burger and my wife had the burger salad. Both were good, the tuna was a nice seared raw tuna with teriyaki sauce-good flavor. The cupcake dessert was also good. Nice friendly service, we will be coming back.

Yes, it's off the beaten path, but definitely very good food. Lots of locals eat here. I had a salmon burger with a big piece of salmon cooked perfectly. My husband's burger was delicious. We chose salad instead of fries. Very good quality. There's a large beer selection. Waitress did a nice job on a busy night.

The place has a modern retro old timey feel. We were sat right away and it was pretty busy around 5:15pm on a Friday night. Hubby had the crap dip & chips. It was served ice cold with very thick, greasy tortilla chips that over powered the mild crap flavor of the dip (more of a thick cream cheesy texture... More
