This restaurant is permanently closed. Located in the Colonnade of Dover Downs Hotel and Casino, Dave Magrogan developed these classic 1900′s Oyster Houses as a way to pay tribute and homage to the great tradition of enjoying oysters, the ocean’s little aphrodisiacs. No expense was spared to create an Oyster House that transforms you back to a simpler time of food, fun & merriment in a local watering hole.

It is Doc’s joy to serve you the freshest seafood, the finest handcrafted beers, and a superior wine selection!

The food and service were acceptable, as was the ambiance. The prices were a bit high for the quality and quantity of food provided.

Food was good but cold. I waited 50 minutes for dinner when the restaurant wasn't busy. I was extremely disappointed because I always recommend it to my friends for a nice dinner.

The food was bland and overly seasoned with garlic. It was not a good value for the money. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this place and would not dine there again.

Thought this was going to be a delicious dinner especially the seafood. Not one part of the meal was good. Ordered fried oysters at an oyster house, not sure there were any oysters hiding in all the breading. Overall very expensive for not very good dining experience.
