Chicken was raw tasting (according to hubby), my BLT was good, you really can't go wrong with a BLT. Go figure

“Twice in Three Days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

What attracted us the first time was that it was a short walk from the warm & cozy Gray Ghost Inn on Route 100 in West Dover. Our group of four was on our annual motorcycle trip in Southern Vermont. Although each of us ordered something different, each of us found our meal was delicious, nicely presented, with ample portions and reasonably priced. Varied menu. Excellent service. The salads were fresh and crispy. The server was well-informed (and lovely!)

The following night we tried a different nearby restaurant on Rte 100. It was OK, but not nearly up to the standards of West Dover Joes. (Others must have reached the same conclusion because West Dover Joes was noticeably more popular!) So our choice for a third evening dinner in the area was to return, an easy decision. We arrived late, near closing, but were warmly greeted and well served with another excellent dinner. In past years our little group has tried most of the restaurants in West Dover and adjacent towns. This is our new favorite.

Next year we expect to return to Route 100 for another autumn ride. And we look forward to some more delicious dinners at West Dover Joes.

“Horrible food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Been there a few times food is very disappointing especially the last time. I ordered a turkey burger and it was a fake horrible tasting turkey burger patty. How hard is it to make real ground fresh turkey burger??

“Delicious But Pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We travel to this part of Vermont yearly. We have eaten here each year since it has opened. The food is excellent. From upscale sandwiches to burgers, everything is delicious. However, there are other places in West Dover just as good with a smaller price tag.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

West Dover Joe's has a Wednesday night pasta special that is great! The indoor seating area is spacious and the outdoor patio is lovely. The food is delicious, the service is good, and the prices are reasonable. There was entertainment the night we were there.
