“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

West Dover Joe's has a Wednesday night pasta special that is great! The indoor seating area is spacious and the outdoor patio is lovely. The food is delicious, the service is good, and the prices are reasonable. There was entertainment the night we were there.

“Nice evening out. . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We had a nice evening out while dining at West Dover Joe's, but after reading all about the background of the chef/owner, we expected a better meal. The food was good, but not special. Sitting outside was lovely, and the live musice was a nice bonus.

“Yummy in my Tummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Super friendly and personable staff. The food was excellent -- wide variety to keep everyone in our party of six happy. The scallop special was wonderful -- best scallops that we have had in very long time. Gnocchi came with a terrific Caesar salad. The risotto was quite tasty. The chef owner knows what he is doing. The only negative, the service was extremely slow because of only one waitress. The bar tender gave excellent golf tips which we enjoyed.

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

The building is unprepossessing and you walk in through the deli. I ordered a turkey burger with pineapple and teriaki, sweet potato fries, and coleslaw. The turkey burger was juicy and the roll was soft. My wife had a build-your-own deli sandwich with fries. The bread was baked on-site, the sandwich was large and delicious, and the fries and cole slaw were done right.

Our server, Katie, was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We've tried most of the family-style restaurants in West Dover, and this is the best place we've found.
