I love this place on a rainy night before a civic meeting. Great food, good service and a warm and welcoming environment.

The food here has never ceased to amaze me...how, time after time, the fish is overcooked, the rolls cold and the lobster chewy. Why the locals keep coming is beyond me, This review is based on 5 to 6 visits. Busy nights, slow nights..never fails. POOR

This was our fourth visit to the restaurant and again, we were very pleased and satisfied. The calamari was the best we've had in a very long time! The fisherman's platter was delicious especially the shrimp and scallops. The trout was also very good but if you get it blackened expect some heat! Staff was very pleasant! Drinks are a... More

I love going to the Dolphin, the food and service are always good. The floor design is set up so it never gets too loud. In the cool weather the gas fireplace is on and takes the chill off. The place I take out of towners because I trust it.

First of all, let me say when I walk into a restaurant I would like to be greeted by a hostess and then shown to my table. I realize this restaurant has 2 entrances, but you would think that at least one there would be a host or hostess greeting you. Not here. We walked in the front entrance and... More

Sunday, October 17 dinner was unbelievably bad. The food was very good but the service was non existant. We had to ask numerous times for wait staff. They even tried to correct situation by bringing a complimentary shrimp cocktail and apoligiing after first two issues. It continued where I had to actually go to kitchen and ask for a waitress....

Simply average seafood at average prices. They redesigned the bar area which is nicer than before. I just wish it was better quite honestly. I love seafood in general but if I want a seafood fix, I wouldn't recommend this place. It's not that it's bad, it's just average. We ordered the calamari and baked seafood dishes. We had a... More

Service was okay, but again the food wasn't. The calamari appetizer although tasty and cooked okay had way more fried peppers than squid. My wife's fried clams were left in the deep fry so long that they were awful...you could tell from just looking at them that they were overcooked. Amazing that the chef allowed it to go out. This...
