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

Everything about this restaurant was excellent! The service was fast and the food hot. The server was always attentive but not overbearing. There is so much to choose from on the menu, it was hard to choose. There is a wonderful variety. And it is very reasonably priced. An awesome place to go for a special occasion, a night out...

Have eaten here many times both lunch and dinner. My usual order is the caesar salad with grilled salmon.

Christopher's is small, intimate, and satisfying. The haddock was beautifully done. Service was friendly and efficient. They have a great brunch on Sundays also. A jewel in Dover.

It's a small place but the food is always good. Been a couple times now and always walk away satisfied. Brought a business colleague and he was pleasantly surprised and happy with the atmosphere and food. We will go again.

We had a nice dinner with a couple of draft beers with half price apps. The Lobster Club sandwich was very nice, as was the crab cake app and the boneless buffalo wings.

Visited recently after making the trip a week before and finding them closed. Really glad we went back. This place has got really decent food. Our waitress was a sweetheart. Very tentative to what we wanted and always around when we needed her. For an app, I got the Hot Sausage Soup. The only thing wrong?? Not enough. There is... More
