Went there for our 40th wedding anniversary, service was excellent, food was very fresh and the steaks were grilled to perfection.The herbed fries were an unexpected pleasant surprise. Reasonable pricing on the wine list.

Food was so good and service was great on a busy night. Our server was Rebekah who even over booked in her station was very sweet and efficient with smiles and patience. Sylvia was the hostess and very nice when we just got in an had no reservation so she offered us the only seating available which was 1hr later and we took it. Table was ready when we arrived. We were the last table to leave but we're not at all rushed and the manager,Efren, one of 5 on that evening stopped by to check on us. Wonderful food and dining experience. Going back in October. Hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did.

My husband and I went here (first time!) for our wedding anniversary dinner. We were delighted to discover this lovely, upscale restaurant with all the trappings of fine dining. Rebecca was an attentive, helpful server who ensured that our every whim was satisfied. Head Chef John came to our table to both congratulate us and to verify our pleasure with our meals (prime strip and filet mignon steaks, preceded by lump crab cakes as an appetizer). As a final gesture of good will, Rebecca gifted each of us a spot-on delicious apple tart for dessert. It is a grand venue for any occasion.

My wife and I had dinner here while staying at the Dover Downs Hotel/Casino. This was our second visit. We both had beef tenderloin, my wife's done Medium and mine done Medium Rare. Both came out perfectly cooked and were tender and delicious. The service was exceptional too!
The only thing less than excellent this night was the noise coming from the other side of the restaurant--a business meeting with many people and narrated slide show--that we were forced to listen to because the meeting place was not closed off by door or wall. This took away from the normally romantic atmosphere.
