McGlynns Pub & Restaurant - Dover
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!
The food was very good. Service was a little off as our server was apparently very busy. Another one actually took our drink orders which I thought was very helpful. After that there was no problem.
McGlynns is right in our neighborhood, so we go there quite often. We had never had the prime rib special and had a birthday offer from them for BOGO entree free. We were able to use the offer for the special and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Our server was very pleasant and capable.
I couldn’t find anything to complain about. It was a perfect Valentines Day dinner. And Thursdays are a Prime Rib special day and they came as we ordered. Just what I needed.
We went for the AUCE steamed shrimp and it was amazing. One side and everyone’s side was also amazing. Cornbread is great. We went back in January for this also. We will be coming again soon.
Had the rack of ribs which was very good; the Reuben sandwich was also very good.
Yes, but I was not a happy camper. Made a reservation, but did not end up where I reserved.
Too much bread and not enough flavor in the French Onion Soup. The Ruben sandwich was just Ok, again not a lot of flavor. The Apple Walnut salad had lots of brown-edged lettuce pieces but apples and walnuts were good.
This was our first visit for dinner in a very long time and it was a great experience. Our server, Tori, was very personable and friendly. She explained meal options and provided everything we needed to make our meal enjoyable. We both selected the Prime Rib dinner and what a great choice. The meat was done per our liking and the sides were cooked correctly but not overdone. The Prime Rib was roasted and sliced per order which is the best way to enjoy this meat. We will definitely be back for the Prime Rib another visit.
Family get together
We went for brunch on Sunday over the Christmas weekend because of the high reviews we heard from other people. The food was very good with a great selection and generous portions. We were very glad we made a previous reservation. The service was ok but not what I expected from the reviews I read before choosing to eat there. The views were peaceful and it wasn’t too crowded when we first got there. As our meal went on and it got later in the day, more and more people came in and that peacefulness went away.
Been here 2x, and both were great because we had a wonderful server. Food is food is food, what you would expect and the servings are generous. The view of Silver Lake just adds to the ambience.
The shrimp dinner was mediocre at best. The shrimp were limp & had no taste despite getting more Old Bay. Maybe stick to burgers. It was very loud despite the place being mostly empty. DJ & Trivia guy contributed to noise level. Had to leave to finish our girls get-together.
Good food, reasonable prices. Service was excellent. Server was very attentive to our needs. Food prepared to our instructions. Same experience on our last visit. Will patropine again.
Happened to be going through Dover and found this restaurant, luck was on my side because I really love it. When in Dover I will definitely visit again great food wonderful service .
Good food and atmosphere! service was excellent, !!!
Great food and good service! Will return when in the area.
McGlynn's is in a great location and serves delicious food. We enjoyed the Prime Rib Special on Saturday night and it was wonderful. Great choices for beers, wines, etc. Service was excellent, ambiance was lovely (our table overlooked Silver Lake) and we requested a quiet spot for dinner. We've been there twice and will return again when in the Dover, DE area. A fine neighborhood gem - highly recommended!
Passed through Dover about a week earlier and picked McGlynn's from Fairfield inns and suites list of dining options. Enjoyed it so much that we made sure we dined there in our return trip.
We were driving from NY to NC, stopping overnight at the Fairfield Inn in Dover. Mcglynn's was on their list of local eateries and was just the type of place we were looking for. Enjoyed the food, cocktails, wine and service. Glad we made a reservation. Will definitely be stopping there on our return trip
Every time I leave there I swear it will be the last. Then I visitors and they want the view.
Service was wonderful, food was perfect and view of the lake was perfect.
Pleasant atmosphere. Range of food options. Excellent service. Will come back for sure.
