The eggs are well prepared and the portion of bacon is amazing. The atmosphere is typical diner but appears... read more

It's an OK diner. Not great, not horrible, but it stays open a lot more than most things in town. If you need some food, it'll provide, even at 2 am.

Wife had meatloaf dinner. Meatloaf was bland, mashed potatoes were instant, jar gravy, clam chowder canned, pudding was ok. I had the cheese burger deluxe which comes with fries. Burger was tasteless, fries were good. No shakes as ice cream machine was broken. Water for drinks. Less than $18.00 without tip for both meals. We are accustomed to diners having... More

They offer a variety of breakfast dishes with great sides (including scrapple). Our meals are always excellent and large portion sizes. Great value for your money! The service is excellent! Nice old fashion atmosphere and many, many deserts to choose from. I make it a point to stop in at least once or twice a month.

I stopped in to Hollywood Dinner with a friend in hopes of getting a milk shake, but come to find that their freezer breaks on and off several times a month (stated the waitress). That's really all we wanted so we sat at a booth and talked over water. The waitress was very nice and they let us hang out... More

We always stop in the Hollywood Diner when in Dover. A diner that dates back to the 1960's, it has been part of many's history. The menu is extensive; the food is expertly prepared; the prices are good, and the servers are professional and friendly. Recommend it to anyone.
