    Nice new place; very pleasant views of lake; great at sunset. Menu ranges from bar food to full dinners. Some cajun influences in entrees. Reasonable selection. Entrees generous sized. Party of 6 - all were happy with a range of selection from jambalaya to chicken florentine to salmon to mah mahi.

    This was our first time. We were looking for a place that we had never been before. Food was very good and service was very good as well. There is also a wonderful view overlooking the lake. Our only complaint was that it was quite noisy. I guess though that it is understandable being the type of facility but it made it hard to have a normal conversation at our table with all the bar noise. Other than that we did enjoy our first experience there.

    I've been to McGlynn's several times and always loved it, on this occassion I made reservations for my friends birthday. I can't tell you what awesome service we had, very attentive. They read the notes to the maitre de that it was my friends birthday, they wished her a happy birthday, and brought her out a whole cake for us to share. I've never been to a restaurant that supplies a free cake!! Wow!! Excellent restaurant. It's my favorite restaurant in Dover!

    The food was good, three of us ordered the fish and chips but one was a little overcooked. We asked for malt vinegar but after waitng five minutes I had to go to the service area and ask for some. We had to wait for refills on our drinks as the waitress never came over to check on us, we had to flag her down. Overall our group though the food was a little over priced and the restaurant was chilly.

Please get rid of that usueless stabble you built in the middle of the parking lot and get more parking. I should not have to run across State St. for dinner.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/22/2009
    Outstanding food, great service but they need to decide what type of restaurant they want to be. If I wanted to go to a "family restaurant" where children abound, I would pick Bob Evans. I did not expect that at McGlynn's. A young mother walking around the dining room with a crying infant in one arm and a bottle of beer in the other while the father sits at the table in dirty jeans and a backward baseball cap which he never removed is not my idea of a class establisment. Need dress code and one "kid friendly" room in which to seat families with small children so everyone is not annoyed. This kind of experience is what keeps folks who would be regulars from coming back!

    Excellent Food and FANTASTIC VIEWS!! but there is never enough attention paid to us: there seems to **never** be enough wait staff for the lunch crowd. What I mean by this is our wait person is always taking care of too many tables. Also, they open at 1130am for lunch when the rest of the area restaurants open at 11am and those of us that have to take lunch early don't get to go to McGlynn's as much as I would like to because of this 1/2 hour difference and the slow response to our table by the wait staff.
