Great Seafood Dining 10/2/2009

I've been dining here for the past few years. The service is always good, as is the food. The exotic and colorful saltwater aquariums, along with the nautical theme theme, really sets this restaurant off. On weekends, they have very good live entertainment, with music to appeal to the 40's-70's crowd. Pros: Plenty of parking, great entertainment on weekends Cons: Usually need a reservation more

the worst seafood restaurant I've ever been to. 8/10/2005

My girlfriend and I had a horrible lunch today. Not because of the service, which was prompt and courteous, but because of every other conceivable thing. In non-smoking it stunk of smoke. The salad dressings were watery. The food was bland, and the food they did season tasted horrible. It also seemed funny that not only were the guests elderly, the staff seemed to be as well. Overall, Dover is a nautical themed dining room appropriate for a nursing home. Pros: has a parking lot, roof doesnt leak, pets not allowed Cons: The food, The ambience, stinks of smoke more

Dive into freshness 8/24/2002

A contemporary nautical surrounding invites you into a world of succulent seafood. The menu provides a host of mouthwatering choices that even the non-seafood lover can appreciate. My party was extremely satisfied with our meals. A well-mannered staff aims to please while giving you a regal treatment, but their sluggishness make them fall a little short. Overall a really enjoyable place for excellent food, just be prepared to be patient. Pros: Fresh, Atmosphere Cons: Slow, Crowded more

More times than I can remeber... 7/25/2002

I have been visiting the Hoffmann Estates location for over a decade and have been very happy with each and every visit. As many of you well know our suburban choices are a bit more limited than those of the city, but Dover is a standout in the seafood category. Crab is a favorite of mine here, I recommend the soft shell crab or stone crab for starters followed by the Alaskan King Crab as an entree. The portion is quite large. With all the people I've brought here through the years we have tried just about all the offerings and they all are quite enjoyable. Also check out the fresh or daily menu which changes often. Pros: portions, quality, freshness more
