“Even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

I am again reviewing this restaurant because of the food and service improvements. The menu has been revised and the choices are more exciting. Our service was great and the food was outstanding.

“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I made a reservation on New Years Eve for that night and a table was available. Then called me to confirm the reservation and said that there may still be a wait once we arrive. Well when we arrived our table was ready and the table we wanted as well (the booth type table, more romantic)! Service was great and always is. For having dinner on New Years Eve and the place was PACKED our service was great. Food came out a little slower but what do you expect there wasn’t a table empty in the place. We are so pleased with this place that we come about 3 times a month for dinner. I highly recommend this place, if you want more romantic quite dinning sit in the back if you want more bar scene sit in the front of the restaurant.

“Delicious crab cakes and excellent wait staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We stopped at Doc Macgrogan's for a meal recently. I rarely order crab cakes outside of my home town because they are usually all filler, little crab, and no taste. My husband decided to order the crabcakes. They were outstanding! We'd both order the again. I had the seafood Cobb salad which was chock full of yummy seafood.

Our waiter was wonderful. He was enthusiastic, helpful, and attentive. He even answered questions that we had about the Dover area. The food was served in a timely manner, water glasses were kept full, and the atmosphere was very pleasant.

This is worth a stop if you're in Dover, DE.

“Another good dining option in Dover!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

This was our first time to Doc Magrogan's and we were pleased. We ordered the Cease and Desist Fries, fries topped with crab and cheese fondue with Old Bay seasoning, for an appetizer and thought they were very tasty. My wife ordered Doc's Grilled Combo and my son and I both ordered the Fried Maryland Combo. All orders were cooked well and delicious.

As others have mentioned, ask to be seated in the dining area rather than in the casino area. The atmosphere in the dining room was quiet and pleasant and would make a nice couples destination for a dinner out.

We were all quite happy with this restaurant and plan to return soon!
