We're not gamblers but heard that this is a very good place. Not readily accessible and of course you have to wind thru clanging slot machines. It is a well decorated place, one of the top spots in the casino that has the whole spectrum of dining from simple coffee shops to white-table-cloth venues. Doc's is one of the latter... More

I go to Docs usually once a business trip because others with me seem to enjoy it more than I do. I will say, I enjoy the oysters, and during happy hour the price is good. The rest of the food is ok, but not fresh and definitely not worth the cost.

I was excited to hear that this restaurant at Dover Downs Casino was serving "all you can eat crab legs" for 28.95 on Tuesday night November 29th. My wife accompanied me but ordered grilled chicken instead. The crab legs served were of the lowest grade I have ever experienced. There was very little meat in them. I re-ordered several times...

We have spared no expense to create an Oyster House that transforms you back to a simpler time of food, fun, and merriment, in a local watering hole. It is our joy to serve you the freshest seafood, the finest handcrafted beers, and a superior wine selection!
