Our server was friendly and attentive. Our food was delicious, hot and plentiful.
We first ordered the tomato, cucumber and onion salad. It was fresh and delicious. My friend ordered the chicken parmigiana and I ordered the eggplant parmigiana. We also ordered their famous meatball. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Always dine here when we come to Dover Downs. It's our favorite place to eat.

Service was great, but food was not. Calamari looked like little onion rings, lightly breaded and fried with no flavor. Eggplant parmesan was lukewarm, at best; with slices of breaded eggplant that were so thin, you could barely taste the eggplant. The sauce for the calamari and eggplant was terrible, again with no flavor or spices. It didn't taste like a tomato sauce and looked more orange in color. Will not eat there again, which is sad because it's the only "nice" restaurant currently open at the casino.

My meals at Jerry Longo's have always been tasty. But if you expect large portions, better go somewhere else. For the price, you get very little.
Longo's needs to serve bread without such a hard crust.

Thanks for a fantastic meal. My only complaint is that I was charged way too much to substitute shrimp for clams in a pasta dish. But it was delicious. The waiter was wonderful.

The food was amazing. Our best meal of our entire trip to Dover. We will definitely return. Our waiter was excellent but he was alone and he was also bussing tables. He was attentive and knowledgeable when he was at our table but he was pulled in many directions and could tell he was frustrated. They need to work on improving staffing. He was an excellent waiter and did his best though. The food made up for any shortfalls in the experience though.

I have an eaten at Long goes many times with my husband and we always have a delicious meal. On Saturday I met there with my girlfriend and we both ordered vodka penne with shrimp…. we ate the shrimp but the the penne was flavorless. It tasted like somebody poured tomato soup over the Penne.
Otherwise the service was good and the drinks were perfect. Certainly plan to go back but will never order that dish again. I usually order the clams with linguine and that’s always delicious.

This was our first time eating at Jerry Longo's. We had a very nice experience, and our server, Alberto, was excellent. He filled us in on everything we needed to know. This was a birthday celebration and we had a party of six. Our table was ready when we got there, and the food was delicious. The music was loud when we went in (only complaint) and a couple of our guests had a hard time hearing. We asked Alberto if he could turn the music down a bit, so people could converse, and he promptly turned it down. He brought out a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl with a candle for her to blow out. Also, he paid attention to my request to make sure that my husband was given the check His attention to detail was wonderful. The next time I visit Jerry Longo's, I will definitely request that Alberto be our server.

I ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Pasta was extremely bland with not much taste.when I asked server about it he said that’s just how they make it there. What??food is kind of overpriced.especially the main entrees.salad and appetizers were real good. Service was fine except for the confusion over my spaghetti.
