We were getting hungry as we crossed into Delaware on our way back to DC after Thanksgiving and, thanks to the miracle of TripAdvisor, we were able to find the Golden Dove just off the first exit south of the bridge. Though it has something of a "land-that-time-forgot" look, the menu is encyclopedic in diner range, the prices are totally... More

Staff is friendly all hours of the day and food is great. I go for breakfast at least once a week. I do not think I have waited more than 10 minutes for my food. For dinner I go with the Mona Lisa aka Eggplant dish or the all you can eat chicken and dumplings on Weds & Sundays. The... More

We love the breadth of choices available on the menu here, it's atypical of a diner in our experience. Reasonable prices make for an even better experience. Certainly not the best food we've had, but for the price, it's a great place. They have a good selection of cakes and pies for desserts as well. The interior is dated a... More

This is the kind of place we like to find. The menu is extensive--chicken, pork, beef, seafood--and all at reasonable prices. My roast beef and gravy came piled high--a mountain. I had sides of deep-fried mushrooms and warm applesauce. My companion had crab-stuffed flounder with a tossed salad and baked potato (described as tasty). Warm rolls accompanied the entrees and...

Been here before with my family. Usually good food and service. This time ran into a problem. My son and nephew both got cheese steaks and no problems with them. According to them they were good. I ordered a Buffalo Chicken Wrap. Took 3 times for them to get it right. They 1st brought out a BBQ chicken wrap, 2nd... More

The service was good, greeted at the door very quickly and seated. The restaurant was dark and could use some sprucing up. The chicken ceasar salad was good and the server did the right thing by putting the dressing on the side in a cup. The server checked in with us every 5 minutes throughout our lunch. It became a...

This is one of the only places always open when NO ONE ELSE is open! We visited Christmas Day for a late bite after a movie and a year earlier for another holiday when no one else was open. This is NOT a place we would normally visit. The food was "so so" - the usual high calorie, large portion... More

We had breakfast here on a trip to Virginia. I love diners, and this one did not disappoint. Food was good, service was pleasant and quick. They weren't terribly busy when we were there, but even so the food was ready faster than I expected. Portions were large and coffee cups were kept full, couldn't ask for more. We liked... More

Staff is very friendly and the menu has a lot of variety. It's hit or miss with the entrees though so choose wisely. Prices are excellent and you cannot leave without trying one of their delicious desserts which are made fresh at the Diner.
