Best burgers in Dover, by far!

My wife and I come here regularly, and have never been disappointed. Gourmet burgers and a craft beer selection that can't be beat!

The server is really committed to doing her job, which is expected from the diners! I went here just a few days before the start of 2015. I remember ordering a cheese or a tomato sandwich and it was perfect enough to warm up my appetite. Give it a try, especially during the winter season!

We were spending one night in Dover and decided to try this place. We enjoyed the mini beer sampler, which they were all very good. The burger was awesome and the service was great. Our waitress Kaitlain was friendly and attentive. We would eat here again.

Burgers and beers every Friday night. This is our go to place and we enjoy it very much. Sit at the bar and let Tony and Tina take care of you. They are awesome! The burgers are great and the beers usually are too. Sometimes they have some weird stuff on tap tho. Best casual place in all of Delaware!

I used to frequent Restaurant 55, but I unfortunately cannot get there as often as I would like lately. They have fantastic burgers and the best homemade chips and French onion dip around. Some may say they are a bit pricey, but for the food they give you I say it is well worth it. It is off the beaten... More

Four adults, two children. Each of us had something different. Each of us walked away satisfied, full and happy. There were couples, singles and families seated. It is obvious that the place is well liked by locals and visitors alike. They were not exactly set up for littles, but were accepted in with a smile.

You definitely don't go away hungry! Some of the best burgers in Dover. A bit pricey, but worthy the cost!

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 has never been... 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
