Dover Straits is right on.

The food, the ambiance the hosts are all welcoming for family dinner, dinner for two or business meeting. Bill and his brother runs a real nice place.

I visited on New Year's Eve, and this was admittably my first time in this seafood shack. When I got to the shack, the exterior had great decór. The decór made the shack look more like a hotel (to me at least). The decór gives a sense of fellow greetings and I was blown away by a vast amount of... More

This is a restaurant that I have been visiting for over 15 years. Love the salad bar and how it comes to you.. Food and service is always 1st class.

They took "theme" to a whole new level! This place is a buffet for the eyes! It is absolutely beautiful, down to the tiniest detail. Gotta check out the salad boat cart! The food is just as impeccable as the scenery. Lets not forget the staff, WOW! They are there for your every desire. Polite, courteous, neat, and very detail... More

Salad served by a congenial young lady was excellent. Unfortunately excellence ended there. Expecting great seafood we were most disappointed as our meals were bland. The one person in our party of four that did not have seafood ordered prime rib that she found to be, although tender, flavorless. For meals that cost upwards of $25.00 each this is unacceptable.

OK, it is a bit of an "old fart" restaurant....but I love it!! It has been around forever, and that says something itself. It is also a nice place for young folks to have a romantic dinner for two. The food is very good (including the salad cart) and the early meals are a fantastic deal!!! They have good bands... More

There early bird (by 6 pm) is wonderful and includes a choice of at least 12 entrees, soup (either clam chowder or lentil) salad ( they bring the cart and you tell them what you want on your plate), rice or potato ( baked or mashed), ice cream or sherbet. We enjoyed the whitefish almondine, which came garnished with broccoli... More

We decided to have dinner and go dancing at Dover Straits with our friends. We were greeted by the friendly hosts and seated. I ordered broiled whitefish and my husband ordered the sea bass. They were both so delicious! Plus they have a salad cart that makes your salad right at your table with your choice of tomatoes, onions, chick... More
