Right on the main strip of Dover's Historic District. Provided a good location for food before a show at the Shwartz Center. We were able to get a table without a reservation. Not a huge lunch menu, but plenty of options. Great selection of craft beers. Besides tables, also had bar seating for 15 people and 2 large TVs playing... More

Met daughter and son-in-law before Comedy show at The Schwartz Center for the Arts. The restaurant was full but we were able to get a table in the bar area. The entrees were great and the prices very reasonable. The son-in-law actually took home at portion of his meal. Pam, the server was attentive and efficient. This is a definite... More

I don't know how a restaurant of this caliber can be located outside a major city, but I'm sure glad we found it during a stopover on our trip home from OBX. Our dinners were simply amazing. We both started with a cup of their crab and corn chowder and knew right away we were in for a treat. My... More

My husband and I went to 33 West Ale House and Grill for lunch because we were in Dover and I like to try new restaurants based on reviews from Trip Advisor. This place is a corner restaurant in what I would call and old town, much like Easton, Md. There is nothing exceptional about the decor, but the food... More

The menu here is not real extensive. They have a good burger and some standby meals that are consistent in quality. Salmon dinner is always a hit for me. They have extensive beer selection that is always served cold. They need a little more atmosphere in the form of music and Lighting to make it a special place. Good for... More

I absolutely love the creativity that goes into the food. It is hard enough to find unique food in Dover, but 33 West hits the spot when you want to get away from franchise restaurants. I love their buffalo chicken sandwich they serve for lunch. Their french fries are amazing as well as the dip that goes with it. Good... More

Great menu at reasonable prices, plus great beers. Filled with local professionals which is usually a good indicator of quality vs price. Definitely will return.

This is a really fun place to go and dine. Its a bistro/ gastro pub. They do some really good burgers here and their rib cabonara is awesome. Had some really good craft beers on tap.
