Have been to this restaurant twice now. The location is pleasantly decorated in a modern vibe. Seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection, although it may be a little underdone for some tastes. Deserts are also good, especially their bread pudding, which is always on the menu and is a large portion. Don't believe they take reservations but if you get there between 5:00 pm (opening time) and 6:00 pm you should be able to get a table.

Had dinner here with a friend of mine out of town. I have eaten at this restaurant several times and find it to be one of the best in Dover. It is not a chain so it has it’s own uniqueness. The sitting is limited and if you don’t make a reservation or get there at or shortly after 5pm when it opens for dinner you will be waiting at a beautiful bar for a while. From the bar you can see the food preparation. Every I have ever eaten here was superb. The meals include fresh fish, fruits and veggies from local farmers...from the farm to the table. The service is great. It is a gem and I recommend it to anyone visiting Dover, DE.

Food was delicious...I sampled everyone's...I might suggest getting sauces on side (even for the ribs, so you can control the amount of flavoring you want).

We met friends here for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was delicious, the restaurant clean, and everyone was attentive and wanted you to have an enjoyable experience. Our wait staff, Sandy, was extremely helpful and had a lovely sense of humor. And quite thoughtful as she added a candle to my husban's dessert cake - she went the extra step.

The seafood is fresh, delicately cooked, no overpowering flavors so you get the true taste of the fish. The creamy dill dressing for salad is wonderful!! If you are a dill fan - don't miss this. The rolls are fresh and taste homemade. And you should not miss the carrot cake - not overly sweet and full of carrots and nuts - a true delight.

We will most surely be back when we are in Dover.
Our thanks to Sandy for her help and attention.

This is the best restaurant in the area of Camden and Dover. The quality of the food is excellent. The service is also excellent.
