Pretty view but sub par food. We got the Nachos which were HUGE but the cheese was only in the middle with a few beans which made it soggy and a little lettuce which was under the heat too long, we also got an order of chicken tenders which were over breaded and dry.

Decent meal, try the BBQ Tots, you'll be glad you did. Everything else was pretty normal. Will return.

On the shores of Silver Lake this is a great spot to enjoy a drink with friends or have a nice meal all while appreciating views of the water. The bar seems to be very popular. During happy hour complimentary snacks are offered. Dinner tonight was bourbon glazed salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed zucchini/squash, cornbread and a great local stout.... More

We dined here with friends during a recent visit to Dover. Too bad that the weather was too chilly for dining outside, overlooking the water, but the pub itself was cozy...just what we needed. Some of the decor, though, seemed a bit "out of character" for an Irish pub. I was really impressed with both the variety & quality of... More

We are in Dover over night. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Nice to be seated promptly without reservation. The menu selection is varied, everything from burgers to full dinners. The prices are reasonable. Our waitress, efficient & friendly. The only minus is noise level but considering it's a pub, I'm not complaining. I would recommend this establishment.

Always great when I come in. The food, the atmosphere, the people are always nice. I enjoy sitting outside by the water here, and I've been coming here since 2008 and have never had a bad experience.

This pub is one of my favorite spots in Dover. The rack of ribs is the signature dish. They are perfectly marinated and seasoned. The servers provide great attention to guests despite a very busy floor. Also the pub sits on a picturesque lake with sea gulls, ducks and sometimes a rabbit hops through the scenery.
