McGlynns Pub & Restaurant - Dover Ratings and Reviews
I won't be going back. We were there on a Thursday for Prime Rib night. We ordered it rare and it came out cold - and I mean cold. It didn't help that we had no utensils and had to wait and wait and wait and wait for our waitress. We ended up packing it up and taking it home so that we can put some heat to it. Also, we ordered appetizers. Before we could even eat them the meal was brought out. Really? It's not like there was a rush for tables. The place was mostly empty except or those at the bar.
Disappointed in my dinner this time. Had the blue berry spinach salad - supposed to have beets, blueberries, blue cheese and poppy seed dressing and walnuts . But it was mostly spinach, maybe 5-6 very very small chunks of beets, NO blueberries, a couple walnuts, and the salad hadn't even been tossed with the dressing - just a small blob of dressing in the middle - had to search for it.
I meet with two friends here every year. They drive from Fenwick Island and I drive from Newark. It is an absolutely perfect meeting place. half way from both starting places, with a delightful ambience on the water, and TERRIFIC service from very nice people. We'll continue this tradition every year for as long as we can. THANK YOU.
The server needs a lot more training. She didn't introduce herself, brought the wrong drink to my guest (he asked for soda water with lemon and she brought tap water with no lemon). When filling my water glass, instead of taking the glass and filling it to the side of the table, she proceeded to pour over the table (with water dripping on the extra napkins) between two people in the middle of a conversation. I ordered an entree salad that she forgot the dressing, it took over 5 minutes for her to bring that to the table. I will admit this was somewhat unusual for McGlynn's but the service has a tendency to be hit or miss. This was a business meeting so the lack of proper etiquette was even more glaring.
I wouldn't recommend this place for catching a special occasion meal even with using the OpenTable app. We got seated right at our reservation time but it went downhill from there. It took 56 minutes from the time we were seated until the time our sandwich & wrap arrived. The kitchen got swamped by an order from a large group that was there for Mother's Day which in turn caused all other orders to be put on the back burner. Our waiter kept apologizing for the delay and explained what was going on but that didn't cure our hunger or the fact that the back up in the kitchen dampened our Mother's Day meal. Also, there wasn't a special meal offered, just the normal menu fare. Sadly, only three restaurants in the Dover area use OpenTable and one of them was a chain restaurant. We could have driven to the Wilmington area and got seated using OpenTable in less time than it took to get our food.
We had a booth, which was nice, but the bar is still pretty loud. (To be fair, we were there on a Friday night). Food was good - several healthy options mixed in with traditional fare, and a great beer list. I had the power wrap and the house-made chips, both were good. My husband had the fish and chips and liked that, too.
We took our parents out to dinner here and it was very good. We had prime Rib and it was outstanding. Our waitress Laura was pleasant and very helpful. She was on top of everything all night. The Hostess staff greated us right away and quickly sat us at our table. The food as mentioned was very good and a great value for what we paid. We will be back when we visit our parents again.
Our office is just across the lake from McGlynn's - so same great view and very convenient.
Have always had excellent service from Hostess Ashley, server Casey and all of the staff. The food comes out promptly and hot and the drinks come out promptly and are cold.
Maybe it was because it was Friday night, or because it was Christmas party season, but the restaurant was so loud that our party of four literally could not hear each other speak due to the screaming from the bar area. Food was ok. When one of the senses so overwhelms you, it is hard to pay attention to the food. Not a good night, but we have had many nice meals at McGlynns so we won't let one bad one drive us away.
Tuesday night is half price cheeseburger night. I would pay full price for McGlynn's hamburgers- they are always perfectly cooked with a variety of toppings- but on Tuesday night a burger, fries and vodka tonic cost about $10. Great value, great cheeseburgers
