Half price burgers

I go at least every other week for the half price burgers! Pretzel bun is to die for! Its decently prices either way. Have a beautiful view, good for a nice meal out, a gathering or business affair. Has free popcorn that you go get yourself

No one goes here for the great food, but that doesn't mean people don't come here. Whether it's the outdoor environment (it's right off a pond/little lake) the indoor environment (depending on the night there is karaoke or cheap drinks/burgers) this place is usually hopping. Early in the day it is a decent, quiet restaurant. At night it turns into... More

Having lived near the McGlynns Peoples Plaza Newark location, we are very familiar with the menu and overall dining platform. Several times a year, we visit Dover and eat lunch at the McGlynns there. Today I had the chicken caesar salad which offered fresh iceburg lettuce, grilled chicken slices, grated mozzarella cheese, bread crumbs and cherry tomatoes. A side of... More

I've been in a lot of "pubs", and while this place has a good pub style design it doubles as a sports bar. Good food, good service and a comfortable combo of bar and dining area. We'll definitely go back for happy hour specials!

There's a lot to like here! We were feeling adventuresome and weren't disappinted. The location is special (and parking can be tight), and the atmosphere is an interesting mix of "upscale" and pub. We found the service excellent from when called to make a last minute reservation through dinner... I never got an explanation for it, but our server entertained... More

Quint little Irish pub with a wide variety of adult beverages and an interesting lunch menu. Attentive, helpful, knowledgable server. Nice sized portions - just right. Free popcorn was a nice touch. Very scenic area with nice views from large windows in dining area. Ample parking.

I really want to give this place a four or five star review but the food just doesn't WOW me. Neither does the service. I like the location and views of the lake and the building and restaurant/bar is very nice. I just don't love the drinks, food, and the service is hit or miss. .

Tried the Tuesday night 1/2 price burgers. My wife and I each had a burger and a pint of Sam Adams Octoberfest. The best surprise was when the bill came, $19.98 not including tip. Nice relaxed atmosphere and our server Wendy didn't try to rush us out of the door. We will definitely be back.

We go here almost every Tuesday night since the place is close to home and because they have half price burgers and inexpensive beer on tap. The place has several booths in the bar area and a separate room away from the bar if you want a quieter dinner....the bar can be loud but does have a nice view of... More
