Located right in Dover Downs casino , a very nice place to dine . The employees there are very nice . A little pricey but the food is well worth the price.

I've been here a couple of times, with coworkers, friends, and family. Each time the service was awful, the food took forever to come out, and it's over priced. I will not go back. I give places at least 3 tries (I don't know why) and won't be back. I've been told if you go alone and sit at the... More

My wife and I went to this location on the day before Memorial Day for dinner on our way back from the beach. Both of our meals were well prepared and very tasty. I had the mahi tacos - they were very good and just enough. The service provided by Bryley was excellent! He knew all the right questions to... More

Great seafood, but I got a gift card for Christmas and it was 50$ and we still had to add money. We ended up getting one appetizer each, a soda, and a coffee. $75. Great food, high cost. But what do you expect, it is in the casino.

Our waitress, Cheetah, was very knowledgeable about the various menu items. The calamari was awesome! My fiancé ordered a couple of different types of oysters (so... More

We celebrated my Mother-In-Laws' 80th BDay with a party of 10 at Doc Magrogan's. We had a fun time and the food and service were better than most in the area. We will be returning to Docs and make sure you try their oyster bar too!
