To tell you the truth, we come here almost every Monday night, (we have tried other restaurants in the area) and this BY FAR is the best meal we have experienced. The service is always fantastic, from George who greets you at the door to the waiters who take exceptional care to make sure your meal is 100% excellent. We... More

I've been here with my wife a few times and I'm kind of torn in terms of how I feel about them. On the one hand, the food is OK (if not Great/Exceptional,) and we've never had really poor service. And I do like the old-fashioned feel of the place (similar, in some respects, to how it feels to walk... More

We love to eat at supper clubs and decided to try Dovers Striats since it was close to our sons house. Had 7:30 dinner reservations on a Saturday night for 4. Seated fairly quickly but it took at least 15 minutes for a waitress to come over. Took drink orders but wouldn't take appetizer or dinner order yet. Finally ordered... More

A nice venue that is primarily a seafood establishment- but does offer steak and a few other items. One of our last experiences was just so-so - but it was New Year's Eve and they seemed overwhelmed. Only offered a limited menu and service was dicey at best. They offer a "salad boat" and create the salad at your table... More

Dover Strait has the ambiance of restaurants from years ago - quiet with well appointed tables and dark enough to be relaxing without being unable to see the menu. I really liked the salad cart which is brought to the table. A good value when so many places charge for sides or salads. There is a broad range of menu... More

Foods were good, place is nice. There's a like band during weekend and a dance floor that you can dance on. The waiting time is average.

We had a family reunion of sorts while in town, and enjoyed a wonderful meal at this great place! We were given a choice of over five entrees and they all looked and were simply amazing! I had the jumbo shrimp over pasta, and could not even finish the pasta, the portions were huge! My husband and son enjoyed their... More

This restaurant was recommended as one of the best in the area so took my wife and daughter there for Mother's Day lunch/brunch. It did not disappoint! Service was gracious and professional (for the most part) and atmosphere was pleasant. There were tables and booths and separate rooms so it is quite spacious. We noticed that they do have live...

We attended for a club banquet. The banquet menu offered several choices. I thought the food was less plentiful than 2 years ago, portions were small. However, everything was tasty. The staff was very attentive.

This restaurant is run by two Greek brothers whom know how to do it well. While popular and busy, they are well organized so tables turnover quickly without you ever feeling rushed. They have lots of tables too, including a bar area that we prefer over their more formal dining room. Their Dover Sole served with lemon almondine sauce is... More
