Dover, DE restaurants?

I'll be in Dover on business later this month. Hoping not to have to traipse outside of the city for dinner after a full day of driving. What's good in town? I'm game for just about any type of food out there. Thanks!

  1. You'll find just about every chain on the Highway. In my opinion the best meal for the money is south of town at the Cool Springs Fish Bar & Restaurant; or Corner eatery at 33 West Loockerman St (Bistro food); and at Where Pigs Fly (BBQ Ribs) at 617 E Loockerman St.

    1. Our favorite is Mare Monti for Italian bistro-style food. Hidden in the corner of a strip mall on the corner of Saulsbury Rd and Forrest Ave next to Food Lion. Cool Springs is good for seafood with a nice open kitchen design. Dover Downs has a constantly changing cast of restaurants as they look for something that works, but Michele's is still good for a pricey a la carte dinner

      1. If you're looking for outstanding authentic Mexican food, check out El Nopal. I wrote a short review of it here:

        It's not fancy but it's also not what I'd call a total hole-in-the-wall either. It's an odd old house, and it's totally delicious.

        1. Thanks everyone! They all sound like great options. I'm not going for a little over a week, so I'm not sure what I'll be in the mood for. It's great to have a variety to choose from. If anyone else has additional suggestions, don't be shy. But I really appreciate what's been posted. Thanks!
