This restaurant has terrific sandwiches and a large selection of beers. They offer a beer flight which is a great way to sample different beers before making your decision. The desserts are cupcakes, which are usually very dry. That is the only negative food item on the menu.

This is our 3rd time eating here. All 3 times it was pretty good. Hubby had the stuffed meatloaf which he said was really good, daughter had the chicken teriyaki and although it was a small portion compared to the meatloaf (same price) she said it was good and she didn't have any leftovers, I had the BLT salad (called...

I visit here often for lunch. They have an excellent spinach salad. I also usually get the sweet potato fries. Their burgers are made with fresh ground meat. They take care to assure their food is the highest quality. Most items are local. Prices are good and service is excellent!

By far, Restaurant 55 serves the best hamburgers in town. They have an excellent variety, plus a great selection of craft beers from local breweries.

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
