I had the pork chop special. It was described as having peppers, tomatoes, and sauce as a topping. However, they were not green and red peppers. They were HOT peppers, which I was not told. I saw sliced jalapeño peppers which I do not eat. The pork chop was very spicy as well as being dry and tasteless. It was a total waste of $40.

The team was wonderful as always. The server Darrell ALWAYS is professional, aware of customer needs for example he remembers my allergies and we had not been since August. My husband enjoys the flavor of the food. So good 👍 👏 👌 🙌 😋

Our waitress seemed to be overwhelmed with the amount of people she was waiting on, because every time I we asked for something she practically ran over and away from us quickly before we could finish asking her a question. Love the food , it’s awesome and our favorite place to eat while visiting Dover !!

Usually I love the place, this time was not good.
Too noisy, the busyness takes away from the ambiance.
Waiters and waitresses stressed to the max.
Kenny and Christopher are super--did not have them this time.

Kenny was our waiter. He is an asset to the company. His service was outstanding and he helped us decide on a great meal. When we return to Dover Downs, we will eat at this restaurant, in large part, due to Kenny's professional service.

Great experience, made even better by our waiter, Kenny! My mother had never been there, so my fiancee and I took her for dinner. It did not disappoint. Kenny went out of his way to make it a special evening and we loved his style! The food was exceptional, though a little pricy. Overall a great experience.

Best fettuccini alfredo I've ever had! Pizza was great, too. I didn't care for the background music...I miss the Frank Sinatra vibe from when the restaurant was Frankie's.

Food was excellent!!! Complements to chef!!!! While our waitress was cordial and polite, she had a habit of not waiting until needs or desires were COMPLETELY conveyed. I dont like to "overwork" folks, as this industry works hard enough and has taken an appreciable "hard hit" (due to COVID).
She would, invariably, walk away in the middle of a statement. For instance, I wanted to ask for more bread, extra napkins, refill on ice tea, etc. She would be walking away after she heard only one thing. I / we do not delay the wait staff, as our thoughts are collected ahead of time. However, it is irritating to keep repeating "hold on". She was a bit forgetful, but people have a lot on their minds this day and age. Despite this, we left her a 35% tip and will definitely come back, hoping that wait staff can be more mindful.

We were disappointed in the mediocrely menu. Especially disappointed in the spaghetti and meatball dish. The sauce had very little taste and the meatball was over cooked. Actually was planning to order extra meatballs, but after tasting, glad I didn’t. Not like grandma’s!

I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Dining at Longo’s was like stepping back into time. The ambiance was amazing, my waiter played the role well and all that was left was food to complete the experience. The meatballs are my favorite!

Thank you! Ms. Pat (Host) for the fabulous reservation!

The first time we were at Jerry's the food was delicious. I recommended to my husband the chicken parmagan and it was nothing like the first time i ordered it from your restaurant. The chicken was so think and dry. The sauce was good and the bread but the main meal was terrible. We saw our waiter twice once when he took our order and when he brought the bill. There was a wedding party there also and they must of been getting all the waiters. I order a spinach entre and it was terrible. No oil for break and no red pepper in the spinach like the menu stated.
