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

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...

Dover has a range of options to choose from - everything from chain restaurants to fixed course, fine dining. The problem with many of them is that they lack consistency.

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.
