A major overhaul of this eatery a few years ago produced fantastic results. It was originally opened and operated for about 10 years as "Dome" and the owner decided a refresh was in order. It closed and reopened as a steak house, but with plenty of well-prepared alternatives to slabs of meat. The food's consistently good, and if it's not, the management will make it right. The staff is well trained and very efficient. The wine list is varied and decent. The price point is just right; not cheap, but only the big steaks will cost you $30. Their chopped salad is a meal in itself -- greens, asparagus, tomatoes, bacon and one of the best versions of green goddess dressing ever (it's got a hint of tarragon in it). They also offer a Wedge that's far and away the best I've had (applewood smoked bacon and a fresh blue cheese dressing). Soups are wonderf; a crab bisque that's creamy and full of lump crabmeat. The chicken tortilla soup is slightly spicy but not enough to frighten the more timid palate. Good beers on tap. Bar scene is very active; lots of local singles filter over from the athletic club across the street. Bartenders are very efficient and friendly. In nice weather, the patio is wonderful and quiet (there's a lighted pond with a shower system that keeps water moving). Dining room is big and can be a little noisy when the place is full (which it is on weekends especially). This has become our "neighborhood" restaurant and we eat here at least once a week. Never had a bad meal. The scallop appetizer is amazing; the gorgonzola dip and fried bread are irresistible. The crab/artichoke dip fantastic. The most decadent and wonderful dish on the menu is dangerous: Lobster Mac and Cheese. Too good to pass up, too many carbs and cholesterol to eat regularly! Hidden gem of a restaurant in this northern Delaware village.
