Jerry Longo's was closed at the time of our reservation. We were never notified and had to leave the hotel to find a restaurant. We understand that Covid may be causing unexpected closures, but the restaurant should have notified everyone through Open Table in time to make other arrangements. Our ratings of Poor are only in order to continue with this feedback.

The food was excellent. I wish there was options for sides and salad. They do not carry a variety of dressings.

All of the food was exceptional as always!! We have never had a bad night out when coming to Jerry Longos. However the service last night was terrible! It was not that busy in the restaurant at the time we were there, but anything our actual waiter was doing for us we had to wait forever for, we never even got some things we asked for, we had to wait a really long time for him to notice we were done, my husband called for him and he walked away, we sat for more then half our meal with no refills on drinks. However the table next to us that was ordering alot of alcohol had his full attention!!! First time ever having bad service here, very disappointed.

Service and cocktails were good. I ordered the NY strip that was absolutely tasteless and rubbery. Ate a few bites and took the rest home for the dog. The broccoli rabe was so bitter it was inedible and the risotto was undercooked. My husband had the veal which he had no comment. We most likely will not return for dinner. Overpriced

I like Jerry’s because it is one of the only reasonably priced venue at Dover Downs. For some reason the new owners (Bally’s), have decided to limit the options for dining.
We decided on Jerry Longos and we enjoyed our meals.
Felt bad that there were only 2 waiters on duty and they were still polite.

I made a reservation, had a conformation for last Thursday at 6pm. I drove from Easton, MD to have dinner at Longo's. When I arrived, Longo's was closed. I should have been notified that it was closed for whatever reason. Not good business!!!!

I was able to make reservation online through open table and the restaurant was closed when I got there. The information on Google and on the Ballys Dover web site says nothing about the restaurant being closed. Wasted alot of time with this.

The food was just fair and did not have a real Italian flavor to it. Should have some Dean Martin or Sinatra playing in background. Music playing was not easy dining listening music. They were short staffed and that definitely affected everything

I ordered the Pork chop, best chop I’ve ever had!! For it to be a double thick chop it was tender and juicy. My husband ordered the Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo delicious. Loved the atmosphere.

Prices were ridiculously high for very inferior food. $34 for a small piece of lasagna is unheard of. Everything was ala cart. Will NEVER, NEVER, visit this restaurant again and will definitely pass that advice to everyone we know. If this is the typical grade of restaurants that Dover Downs is presenting we are finished with it. My husband ordered Veal Saltimbocca with no spinach, taste quality was not good.

Kris' service and attention was very good. Barb, the manager, was attentive and made sure everything ran smoothly (we saw her out in the dining room throughout our time there). Food was delivered as we requested, with a break in between the salad and entree. We had the penne with shrimp in a vodka blush sauce (excellent) and chicken parmigiana (average - pretty typical. The sauce on the chicken could have been a little thicker). Overall, we would return.
