Food service was a bit slow on this evening which is normal for this restaurant, but the food was excellent and they were able to accommodate our group of 6 on a Tuesday evening with no problem. I especially liked the honey bourbon salmon which was moist and flakey.

This is my favorite restaurant in Dover. They have the BEST Caesar salad I've ever put in my mouth, their appetizers are beyond compare, and the entrees are simply fabulous. And that's not even mentioning the desserts, all of which are made right there on the premises! (You MUST try the Chocolate Marquee cake!) They have a very good wine... More

The food here is good for the Dover area. I went on a Saturday night and it was pretty crowded. The staff was friendly and it was clean. It was a mixed crowd. There is a bar area that separates the sit down portion and the bar area. Seemed like the bar crowd were regulars. Good place to eat if... More

Consistently exceptional food. The portions are generous but not oversized. The ingredients are always fresh and the dishes are creative. The fish is always a hit with me. You can't go wrong here.
