My wife and I really love this homey little place in downtown Dover. Always delicious food, friendly staff and really well priced. Work in Portsmouth so I know good food and this place is good. They could charge more (please don't!) and they'd still be a good value.

Usually Christiphersis very good. This time the blackened Red Fish was waaaaaay over cooked. The Parmesan rosotto which is usually very good was stiff and over cooked. I've heard this from friends in the past but this I guess was my turn to get Subpar dinner. Perhaps success has gotten the better of them. Good dinner most of the time... More

We live not far from this restaurant and it's our first choice for an easy and enjoyable meal. The lamb chops are the best around and very reasonable at $23. Pecan crusted chicken breast, pan seared sea scallops and grilled meatloaf are just a few entrees we've sampled. And all were first-rate. The service is very good, and plenty of... More

Visiting family, we happened upon this place. Staff was friendly and squeezed us into the bar area. The grilled salmon on a salad was excellent! My companion's steak was okay but not stellar. Our other guest had sirloin tips and cleaned his plate. Prices were reasonable too. I'd return there when in the area. On-street parking a little hard to... More

My daughter and I had dinner at Christopher's on a Saturday night. There was a short wait, so we stood at the bar and had a cocktail. We were greeted by our waitress, Chloe, as soon as we were seated. She was so friendly and very helpful. We both enjoyed a delicious filet mignon at a pretty good price. Wonderful... More

We celebrated my mother-in- law's 80th birthday at this restaurant last Saturday. There were 5 of us and we all enjoyed both the service and the food very much. Our server was Chloe and she rocked ! Very accommodating, efficient and very caring and patient to our mother-in law... Chloe is a very sweet person and we appreciated her service.... More

When a restuarant is located on a sidestreet with a view of a parking lot, the goal has to be great food, great atmosphere and great service. It was Ok to wait 35 minutes on a saturday night, its date night! The rack of ribs was generous and delicious with fresh summer squash to complement.The boursin chicken was tasty and... More

Went here after looking for place in Dover area and reviews were really good. My family of 5 showed up around 2:30 and were there w/only one other couple who were sitting in the bar area. Was super cute, clean and loved the decor. Got seated then sat for at least 10-15 min before anyone came back to take drink... More

We have never had a bad meal at Christopher's, lunch or dinner. My favorite is the teriyaki steak tips. Definitely recommend!
