Party of 6 on a Friday evening. The guys were up for the prime rib special offered that evening. Their servings were reasonably sized but heavily spiced in the "crust". One of our party received the green bean side so heavily peppered as to be...More

Beautiful building right on the water. Greeting was nice. Went for lunch and was seated in a dark corner. Needed iPhone light to see the menu. If you want to have a pleasant conversation with someone it is not the place to be. Acoustics not...More

We stopped in Dover on our way to Va. Beach. McGlynns was convenient, so we tried it. We both had the beef stew and agreed it was the best ever! Tender beef, wonderful flavor. On the way back the week after our trip we stopped...More

We went here to have dinner with neighbors, who invited us to help as a fundraiser for her organization. There were eight of us, and we couldn't eat together. They only had one large table available, and it was being reserved. Needless to say, that...More

Pub food at a reasonable price. McGlynns offers a fine dining experience on the water in Dover Delaware. Great spot to take prom pictures as well.

I was looking forward to this; a nice steak and sides, a beer, the lakeside view. 2 of 3 isn't bad, but those 2 weren't prepared by them. They were out of Shyrrah. Crab chowder was good, clam chowder was too, but was cold. The...More

We held my mother-in-law's 90th birthday party there. 20 of us were crammed into a very small room which was hot and poorly ventilated. The food was ok but underwhelming. The service was fairly good.

We enjoyed our time here. Service was decent, atmosphere was great, but unfortunately food was mediocre at best. Locals probably enjoy the scenery and drinks, but as someone who often passes through Dover - I'd pick another spot to eat next time through.

What a great place with an interesting atmosphere somewhat like an English Pub. The staff was friendly, lots of smiles. I went on all you can eat wing night and it definitely is a worthwhile event. I pretty much tried all the various sauces they...More

No you don't need reservations for a Monday dinner although summer is a much busier time than winter. There is no GF menu that I know of. They won't let me post the menu-I suggest you check it out. They have specials pretty... More
