We always stop here when at Dover Downs, but will have to rethink this decision in the future. For the second time, the meat on the french dip sandwich was questionable - it did not look, smell, or taste like roast beef - very disappointed!...More

Atmosphere is similar to a cafeteria, Food looks appealing, but I could only find a few food choices that tasted real. I believe it may be Sysco.

No complaints about the meal or drinks at all. Good prices and solid food. Don't expect fancy it's no-frills which is what we were looking for. The Club Sandwich had plenty of meat, wings were good and the mac & cheese was browned just right....More

the fried chicken is fabulous but the friendliness of staff needs work. It was the hostess who was rude and unfriendly and it seemed to rub off on the other wait staff..they have marvelous chicken but the food doesn't make up for the staff unfriendliness

The food was good and service good. Bar service was available. Food coming out of the kitchen can be a litttle slow, but I think they probably handle some room service and that may slow things down.

Nice place to relax and enjoy dinner while away from home. Was able to enjoy a glass of wine without having to travel.

This is an average restaurant within the Dover Downs Casino. If you are frequenting the Casino this is a good place to stop for a snack or a full dinner. Food id pretty good
