“Best food in Dover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Might seem a bit pricey to some but it is worth it. Food is always great and have only had poor service a handful of times. Great specials during their happy mon-fri 4-7 i think.

“One of the few good food choices in Dover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Wife and I love this place. We are both foodies and in Dover we don't have many options. The Blue Point Oysters are absolutely amazing. I recommend going during lunch time and sitting outside in the Casino with all the sights and sounds. The ability to order which fish you want, how you want it cooked and what kind of sauce (if any) you want really gives it an edge over the vast majority of seafood joints out there. Everything has always been fresh the many times we have been. My only gripe is I wish they had a larger draft beer selection.

“Excellent seafood dishes in casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We has an early dinner this past Friday evening. It was our first time trying Doc's because it is usually crowded I
During the occasional weekend evenings we are at the Casino. I found the menu had a wide variety of choices. Many
types of oysters and other fare. We really enjoyed the Clams Casino to start. I was a little skeptical about having the crab cakes but was impressed with the quality. I liked that they used little filler and did not try to flavor them to death with old bay or other spices. A nice sauce was on the side and added a nice touch. My wife had a pasta dish with calamari, shrimp and either clams or mussels. It was a bit spicier than she usually likes but none was left behind. Did not try the desserts so can't comment. The service was great and quick. I thinks the food prices off good value for the quality received. It is nice to have this restaurant within the Dover Downs complex for any of us that come up for a nice weekend of gaming, entertainment and to relax without having to drive anywhere for a few days. I highly recommend Doc's to all.

“Amazing Oyster House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We had dinner at Doc's last night and it was fantastic! Oysters were delicious and service was attentive and knowledgeable. One diner in our party had surf and turf with lobster tail and filet and commented that the filet was "the best they had had in years" and the lobster tail "sweet and tender". Menu is extensive and offers everything from delicious creative appetizers to a full selection of sandwiches presented pub style to full course entrees. Pasta, seafood, beef and poultry round out choices and the "mini deserts" offer a sweet finish without going over the top and feeling over done. Prices are good and the food was very good. Oysters were excellent and a sampler of three different varieties proved true to the description on the menu. We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Cheese and Old Bay fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

4 of us had appetizers, drinks, and dinner here on a Saturday night. The food was awesome, they had tall beers, and the bartenders were great - gave us a sample of martini special that night. I would definitely recommend eating here and/or going out to the bar.
