Diner Reviews
  • "We had a reservation for 4 @ 5:30. The other half of our party was held up, but we were seated immediately, placed drink orders and asked if we'd like to order anything before the rest of our party arrived. The server was very patient and understanding of the fact that our party wasn't complete until 20 mins. later. We go there often and appreciated the understanding."

  • "We ate at McGlynns on a recommendation from a 'local' and were pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and quite reasonably priced, and the ambiance very nice. We'll return if in the area again."

  • "We made a reservation for a family celebration after an event. McGlynn's was very accommodating, even when we called because the event was running late and pushed the reservation by 1/2 hour. The food was very good, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We would definitely return."

  • "I love the McGlynn's franchises including the Cantwell Tavern in Odessa. The Ashby famly does a great job of making lunch or dinner dining a great experience for all age groups. Especially love their burgers and that they are using locally grown products. Also while the restaurants offer some more trendy items, there is always something to suit the less adventurous customer. "

  • "We were looking for a place for dinner and Buzztime Trivia. We also got a nice bright dining room with a view of the sunset over Silver Lake. The atmosphere was energetic but not deafening. We stayed the night with friends and the trivia game is available in the dining room as well as the bar. Service was attentive. Food was perfect and met our expectations for the venue. Facilities were clean and functioning fine."

  • "I planned the lunch at McGlynns with a group of 8 other women. The McGlynns' staff was very accommodating with our needs (a large table, separate checks); our waitress was responsive, professional, friendly, and efficient. We had a lovely time and plan to return in the near future. BTW, because of the positive experience, two women returned the next day for dinner with their husbands!"

  • "Crab cake and roast beef sandwich were both very dry. Crab cake was served without any sauce (had to be requested); and even so, had no taste and was not finished (did not want to take uneaten portion home). Server was very good. Location was also very good."

  • "Found this restaurant on line. Decided to try it based on the great reviews and was not disappointed. The appetizer pretzels were yummy and came with three varieties of mustards. The calamari was just okay. The bourbon salmon was really scrumptious and would highly recommend it. The menu offered a wide variety so there is something for everyone. We were able to view the menu online which was helpful in deciding which restaurant to choose. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. I will definitely return. It would be nice to sit outside by the water when the weather gets warmer."

  • "One of the sandwiches was ordered with no tomatoes, but it came with tomatoes. The waitress offered to take it bake but we opted to just take them off. Unfortunately, they were diced tomatoes so kind of hard to the seeds and all off. Two of the burgers were ordered medium but were still almost bloody. Everything else was wonderful and service was superb!"

  • "Truly more pub than a restaurant but not typical pub food. A neighborhood place for meeting friends and family with good food at an affordable price. Dress is casual and there is a buzz in the atmosphere on most nights. Not a five star restaurant but good enough."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I've been to McGlynns 4 times over the past few months, having had lunch, brunch and dinner. The food is consistently good, and the prices quite reasonable. In a city where good restaurants are at a premium, MGlynns fits the bill for casual meals. We will be back for sure."

  • "They received my reservation but they were not prepared for me. The TV was not set up for the game. Then once they found they had a problem with the satellite, they did not move me to a suitable location. They sat us at the bar that still had food residue from the Make-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar and it made watching the game very uncomfortable because we were at an awkward angle to the TV. Then we waited at the bar before we got any service. The manager and servers got better throughout the visit but it was not a good start to the afternoon."

  • "Went on a Friday night while visiting son at Dover Air Force Base...this is a bar...don't waste time with the non burger or sandwich menu, because quite frankly, the dinner entrees are not good...the appetizers...pretzels and boiled shrimp were good, but the jumbalaya was poor, and the fish was, well, fishy...Also, for a bar, the entrees are actually pretty pricey...nice selection of beer..."

  • "This restaurant is definitely my favorite of all the McGlynn's I've visited. The food is fresh and prepared perfectly and the staff is exceptional. Everyone who works there is super friendly and helpful. The ducks and geese we watching playing outside were an added bonus too. I will be visiting McGlynn's in Dover again and recommend it to all of my friends too."

  • "We did a brunch on Mothers' Day. The place was full and had we not had reservations, I'm told we would have had a 90 minute wait. Thanks to Opentable.com we were seated imediately. Given how busy the dining room and tavern area was, the service was pretty good, and the noise level acceptable. I ordered Eggs Chesapeake, a Benedict-inspired dish loaded with crab meat. It was excellent; the egg was poached properly and the dish (along with my wife's Eggs Benedict) arrived hot. Well done."

  • "We have been going to McGlynns for a long time and have always had great food. The Prime rib was tender and very tasty. The servers have always been energetic and friendly. Its a fun place to meet up with friends and just have a good time. Stop by after work and have a fancy drink and pop corn and enjoy the beautiful view of Silver Lake."

  • "Nice view, good waiter/service, but the food was somewhat cold. The cheese in my chicken quesadilla (spelling?)was not melted and hot."

  • "McGlynns is a constant good performer for lunch in Dover."

  • "They always seem to be understaffed at lunch time, but the wait staff are very nice and do their best. Menu has a good variety of healthy to hearty choices, and everything I've had has been good."
    Dined on 6/26/2012
  • "Our experience was colored by the very poor service of our hostess, who instructed us to follow her to our table, yet (bizzarely) kept on walking right into the kitchen AND NEVER RETURNED! Furthermore, she never returned to apologize for her abrupt disappearance. We requested further assistance from the front desk before choosing our own table! Our waitress, however, was very friendly and cordial; in fact, had it not been for our waitress, I would not return to McGlynn's."
    Dined on 5/13/2012
  • "Have been a few times and find it a great place to meet friends, enjoy the view and the pub food is very good also!"
    Dined on 5/6/2012
  • "We went to McGlynns with a group of family adults. The service was good and we were happy with our view of the lake, the food was good but it was typical pub food. I will say we were a little dissapointed that a restaraunt called McGlynns did not serve Smithwicks beer or serve bangers and mash or corned beef. It was kind of a bummer when we got there and saw it just pub food, not really an Irish Pub. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we would reccommend for family, couples and we did see tables with friends enjoying a night out."
    Dined on 4/14/2012
  • "Food was okay, but service wasn't great. We sat for quite a while before server finally came over, and even longer to get anything after that. I have eaten in the bar before, and it was great there, but the regular dining section was cold and seemed forgotten! Still debating on whether I would recommend to anyone or even tr again myself..."
    Dined on 3/17/2012
  • "Had to wait to be seated, not because it was busy, but because the Hostess was on the phone, then walked away to do something else... she also acted like she didn't understand we had a reservation, or even what Open Table was, which was disappointing, since I had specifically noted in the reservation that we had show tickets and needed to keep on schedule. Once were finally seated, the waitress and food were both good. We sat in the dining room, which was much quieter than the bar area, although the bar area has a lovely view of the lake."

  • "This is a favorite for our office birthday lunches. Food and service is consistantly outstanding and the view of Silver Lake is like the cherry on top!"

  • "We made a reservation and asked for a window seat. When we arrived reservation was waiting for us and we had a beautiful scenic table. Unfortunately it went down hill from there. The drinks were very watered down. Food was not cooked as reqeusted and not very tasty. The waiter had to contue to take things off the bill becasue he was getting our order and drinks wrong."
    Dined on 2/4/2012
  • "We waited at a table in the bar area, to find there wasn't any waitress service. After arriving at our table, service was fine. Pretzel roll was awesome (Turkey dijon sandwich). Ribeye steak was not very thick and not likely 12 oz, but taste was good. Noise level was very high. We had to practically yell to hear each other. I think this would have been an awesome experience for a less busier time slot. We went at 7pm on Sat. We will definitly go back. : )"

  • "I had the jambalaya, which was great. Most places load up on the rice and are stingy with the chicken, shrimp & sausage. That certainly wasn't the case here. The spices were also just right. Will definitely order this again. My husband had the crab cake entree and enjoyed it as well."
