Chicken and Dumplings near Dover, DE?

Where can I go for great chicken and dumplings (or other amazing, homemade comfort food) when I visit Dover in November? I'll have a car and I'm willing to drive as much as an hour for a special place. I want something unique. Maybe like a "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" kind of place. Any suggestions?

  1. Read about The Captain's Table in Dewey Beach here:
    I know that chicken and dumplings is one of their specialties.

    1. About 20 miles south, in Selbyville De, a place called Doyle's. On the right hand side heading south. Not fine dining, but a step up from a diner. Good home cooking.
      Years ago there was a good diner on 13 in Dover. Can't remember the name but it was similar to 'Somebody & Somebody' (like Bang & Olufson). Sorry for the brain fade.

      1. Jimmy's Grille in Bridgeville, also know as The Bridgeville Diner is what you're after.
