This restaurant has great food and customer service. There freshly prepared food (especially the chips) keeps me coming back over and over again.

Restaurant 55 is the best place for Hamburgers! I haven't found a better place in all of Kent county that has as good of a burger. They offer large portions at a good price and the bonus for me is they are right down the street from me in Magnolia!

Knowing we were going to spend a night in Dover, we searched online for a non-chain restaurant. Restaurant 55 had good reviews and we decided to join them for dinner. We had a Lunch Counter Legend Burger and a Bronto Burger. We ordered fries with one and homemade barbecue chips with the other. We were so pleased with our choices.... More

If you're looking for a nice restaurant that has a good range of foods, stop by and try it out. They have delicious burgers with a huge portion of fries for around 10 bucks. Try the sweet potato fries for a buck more and either the teryaki, Santa fe or black and blue burger.

The atmosphere is casual, and family oriented. It's fare is burgers & fries, but with a twist. The burgers are excellent, and they offer home made chips and onion rings.

Great burgers but depending on when you go then parking can be an issue! The seating is a little tight. Service was very good

Seafood is my favorite type of food and I won't go anywhere but Md to get it. The restaurant was a nice establishment and the employees are very nice. But I think I'll stay with Md seafood restaurants.

Best casual burger place in town. Busy, but servers are always moving fast. Their attitudes are excellent. Their fresh potato chips should be illegal. Pick-a-burger! All the ones I've had take two hands -- and you can pick from their specials or have 'em build your own. Can't say much about their desserts -- never made it that far!
