Neat dining experience and the food was excellent. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend. The building was unique and had history.

Three of us met for lunch, never having been here before. Our server Cassandra was excellent, and had a great sense of humor. When one of our group began kidding her, she went right along and was also terrific as a server. The food was basic and nothing special, just average. The portions was a good size, and we all...

Visiting Dover for NYE, Irish pub sounds interesting. The clientele was definitely the much older crowd. The food was good enough but over priced. The place was clean and classy looking, but not as laid back and fun as I hoped. Our server was nice, but not so much that we'll bother ever going back.

Have been here many times, but today was special. My sister & I had been handling some family business, decided to eat in Dover. McGlynn's is a great place to grab a drink, but don't forget to give them a chance to show off their menu. We each got a Caesar salads and both were plentiful, tasty and fresh. Price... More

1st time there. Went with friends. Have to say service was great. The meal presentation looked more like the prepared frozen dinners co-workers bring for lunch. Appetizers were better than main meal. Will probably be a long time before I revisit.

Opted for McGlynns due to its location. Busy happy hour crowd and good music. It was wing night and our server recommended the chipotle and the asian sauces. Great choices. Ordered various dinners and everyone enjoyed their meals. Great server-Torian.

My husband and I have stopped in for dinner and drinks a few times while staying in Dover. We are always promptly seated and the waitresses are quick to take your order. The food sometimes takes a lil longer than we like but is always good. The only downsides to coming here are it's very loud and the bartenders often... More

My wife and I had lunch at McGlynns yesterday. We had eaten here a couple times over the last couple years but never been impressed. Figured the place might have gotten better so we gave it a try. Sorry to say, it's no better than I remembered from the last visit. Service was poor, ice tea was undrinkable, and the... More

The setting of McGlynns is very charming as it sit on Silver Lake. Interior has lot of wood accent and seating. The atmosphere is great. Food leaves much to be desired. Sometimes its well prepared and tasty. Other dishes UGH. Fake formed chicken in the salad is a big no no. Go for the ambiance and beer.

I would not describe this as "lakeside dining" although it was recommended by the hotel as being that. The lake side views are only from the pub / bar area. The dining room is enclosed, non-viewing. Food choices were pretty good; service above average; quality met expectations; and walking the grounds after the dinner allows lake views. But this is... More
