“just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

seafood is great when done right. here, the mark is missed on great. preparations could be much more inventive, and service lacks consistency. it's location inside of dover downs is a turn off- be prepared for noise from casino traffic (though this makes for fantastic people watching). if catching a later meal, you're likely to encounter local 20-30 somethings and a loud dj.

“The Great Send Off!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Our niece is station at Dover Air Force Base and will be deplore to Korea soon. We decide to surprise her and take her out to dinner on a Friday night. I have not been to Dover in over 25 years so it has changed tremendous. She recommended this place for dinner.
Upon arrival we told the hostess what our intention were and she recommended being seated inside. Our waiter was name Kenny and he was very helpful and friendly. The service was EXCELLENT! He was very helpful with the menu and made great recommendation for our party. I highly recommend the special and the coconut shrimp. My wife had a chicken salad which she said was A+. The ingredients were fresh. I highly recommend this place if you are in town.

“Favorite Restaurant in Dover Downs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We've been to Doc Mogrogans several times, as it's a fairly upscale restaurant without being over the top like Michele's. Of all the restaurants in Dover Downs, this is the moderate choice with food to match.

“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.
