McGlynns Pub & Restaurant - Dover
Great value: attentive service, good food, reasonable prices.
It was nice to get out and have lunch with my parents during these trying times. The service was a little slow but the food was good. I am still a little hesitant to eat out.
We stopped off in Dover and noticed this cute outdoor bar/restaurant. Unfortunately, our expectations were much too high. We asked for an outdoor table and were instead sat in the gloomiest of rooms inside the restaurant. We sat at the bar instead and perused the menu, and then got an outdoor table after it was cleaned (it was filled with dirty dishes beforehand). However, your view is simply a parking lot -- not the waterfront. The food we ordered left me sick for the remainder of the day and night and the drinks, although priced fairly, barely had any alcohol actually in them. We left after two rounds of drinks and a pretty terrible appetizer. I would avoid this place.
Was very satisfied with our dinner on the patio. Peaceful. Food and service was great as always. It was our first place to go sit in and eat with our family since covid-19. Will be back again soon
Food and service was excellent!! Nice sitting on the patio!
we have going there for several
years with my 3 other friends The hamburger I ordered was medium well with mushrooms and onions what I got was a hamburger beyond well done and horrible to eat the mushrooms were also horrible
we drove 90 miles for last time to eat terrible food for the last time we will never be back again we will try other good rest.in dover.I called and spoke to your manger that same day and did nothing about it he is a not very good.This the second time I got bad food there will no 3 rd visit.i rate a below f rating.
The service was excellent! Food was really good as well!
Staff was professional, food was great. Will definitely be back.
Love it there. Great view. Nice people. Low prices. Always going back. Happy hour is great also.
a little pricey but a nice place to eat, have drinks and hang out.
The food was good. Service was good. Cleanliness lacking particularly in the restroom.
Great food and great service! You won't be disappointed.
Other than the baked potatoes being very overdone, our drinks, dinner and service were very good.
We came to Mcglyns for my birthday dinner. Totally met our expectations. Will definitely be returning fantastic place great ambience.
Early evening reservation. The venue was quaint but staff was still cleaning up to open. Mani fajita was dull and “glued together” with A mex mix cheese; horrible mouth feel. Cole slaw was bland and not seasoned at all. The rest of the menu was standard pub food which does differentiate it from any other pub restaurant.
We had the Special Prime Rib dinner with hand-cut french fries and sautéed zucchini. The prime rib was prepared as we ordered and brought out quickly. It was warm and could have been a little hotter but was very tasty and filling. It was a very nice sized cut. Server (Brianna) was attentive and she checked back often to make certain our meals and drinks were properly prepared.
New Yeras Eve
I typically visit Newark McGlynns, this was my first time at Dover.
I visited early for dinner on NYE, having a reservation gave us a short wait. Once seated our waitress seemed a little scattered. She was unsure of specials, was not attentive on drinks, and to watch her at the wait staff area was dizzying. Yes, it was NYE, but it was not overly busy at the time of my visit and there was plenty of staff that they were not overloaded with tables.
When we ordered our appetizer, it was a special order and when it arrived it was wrong. They did take it back and corrected it quickly.
My entree was a burger which was perfect; my dinner companion ordered the Bourbon Salmon and it was beyond over cooked and dry; just unable to be eaten. Our waitress did not deliver our food and did not come back to check on us until we were done. The waitress did inform a manager, who offered another option, but at that point we were ready to go. Kindly they did remove the item from our check.
I will give it another try because I enjoy McG and Dover is closer than Newark.
We were there at lunch time. Appetizer and drinks served in a timely manner. Then there was a long, very long lull before our lunches were served. No explanation for delay was offered. One person was served the incorrect side with her lunch. It was corrected, but only after it was pointed out when the server was stopped specifically, not when the server checked on our table. Fries looked thin and pale. McDonalds fries looks better. Most people said sandwiches were 'okay'. Strawberry salad was okay with added chicken; definitely not worth the price charged. We eat here only when out of other places to go. Not much choice in Dover, DE.
Overall a pleasant dining experience. The food and service were fine. We enjoy the atmosphere and their menu. My wife likes their corn bread and I enjoy their craft beer selection.
Loved this place..great service!
Food was good, although it was not as hot temperature wise as I would have liked. We did wait a while for the food to arrive, so I'm thinking it sat there for several minutes.
Went Monday for half price appetizers and Tuesday for burgers both nights the meals were very tasty and nice choices.
I was there for a mid-week late lunch business meeting with a client. Hostess staff happily seated us in a nearly empty section to provide some privacy.
Our food choices, (jambalaya and Cobb salad), were tasty, and well-served.
All in, a B+ experience. Will definitely repeat.
Always a nice time at McGlynns whether it be for drinks and/or food. The location is great (on Silver Lake and about 1.5 blocks from where we live), and the place has a nice neighborhood vibe.
Extensive menu in a calm atmosphere. Food was very good snd the waitress was wonderful. We enjoyed our evening and look forward to returning again and again.
We love McGlynns! It is very close to where we live, has delicious food and great service. We have held several large family events there and received great service then as well.
Had company from out of town. Service was excellent. We asked for air to be turned down. We were freezing. Our waiter obliged. He was very attentive. Food was good. Drinks as well. Will come again. As seniors we enjoyed the dining room away from the bar..
We enjoyed a wonderful celebration of my Mother’s 95th birthday last night in a private dining area overlooking the lake. The food was delicious and our server was very accommodating. Thank you for hosting this special event!
Not our first visit, and we have recommended it often.
Service was perfect!! Pretty water views. Great Irish pub!
Tuesday 1)2 price burgers (McGlynn's stuffed) and $2.50 domestic draft...a fine meal. They offer tater tots if you prefer them to fries. Our server, Katie, was outstanding!7
Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. Our server expertly handled a table of ten with good humor and even snapped family photos for us. Delicious food and fun drinks. Thank you!
In a town like Dover there are few quality restaurants. This place gets an A for ambience. Lovely lakeside location. Need to update their web site as they did not have ava ilable what was on it.
Had a great waitress in Melissa. She handled our group effortlessly. Burgers were great and the local root beer was a plus
We’ve been to McGlynns a few times and it is hit or miss. A few months ago we ordered the Prime Rib Special and received generous portions. This time the portion size was smaller and not as meaty. There was a table of 8 next to us and they were very loud. In addition one lady was using profanity. Perhaps the manager should have come around and asked them to be less boisterous especially since there were children dining with their parents.
Waiter was insufficient, two prime rib dinners came out room temperature, two soup orders not hot. Taste of food was good, variety was plentiful, view was great by the water. We had such high hopes but left disappointed. Our server just wasnt on his game, we had to hunt him down more often than desired for empty water glasses, room temp foods, extra napkins...
I was able to reserve a table for 8 on-line. That was new, but much faster than having to call the restaurant, interrupt the hostess during a busy time to schedule my reservation and wait for the hostess to actually do the reservation. I was the reservation for a monthly dinner group and the number of attendees varies. The really nice thing was that I had several additional people come and McGlynn's Pub & Restaurant went out of their way to accommodate all of us without disrupting the other dinners!
Our server, Amber, was fantastic! Ambience was pleasant. The view was beautiful. The experience was wonderful!
We had a great server, good food and a nice dinner. Definitely coming back!
