My husband and I have stopped in for dinner and drinks a few times while staying in Dover. We are always promptly seated and the waitresses are quick to take your order. The food sometimes takes a lil longer than we like but is always good. The only downsides to coming here are it's very loud and the bartenders often... More

My wife and I had lunch at McGlynns yesterday. We had eaten here a couple times over the last couple years but never been impressed. Figured the place might have gotten better so we gave it a try. Sorry to say, it's no better than I remembered from the last visit. Service was poor, ice tea was undrinkable, and the... More

The setting of McGlynns is very charming as it sit on Silver Lake. Interior has lot of wood accent and seating. The atmosphere is great. Food leaves much to be desired. Sometimes its well prepared and tasty. Other dishes UGH. Fake formed chicken in the salad is a big no no. Go for the ambiance and beer.

I would not describe this as "lakeside dining" although it was recommended by the hotel as being that. The lake side views are only from the pub / bar area. The dining room is enclosed, non-viewing. Food choices were pretty good; service above average; quality met expectations; and walking the grounds after the dinner allows lake views. But this is... More

Pretty view but sub par food. We got the Nachos which were HUGE but the cheese was only in the middle with a few beans which made it soggy and a little lettuce which was under the heat too long, we also got an order of chicken tenders which were over breaded and dry.

A great pub with good food and a view of Silver Lake. Service was excellent. It also has a gluten free food.

Decent meal, try the BBQ Tots, you'll be glad you did. Everything else was pretty normal. Will return.

On the shores of Silver Lake this is a great spot to enjoy a drink with friends or have a nice meal all while appreciating views of the water. The bar seems to be very popular. During happy hour complimentary snacks are offered. Dinner tonight was bourbon glazed salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed zucchini/squash, cornbread and a great local stout.... More

We dined here with friends during a recent visit to Dover. Too bad that the weather was too chilly for dining outside, overlooking the water, but the pub itself was cozy...just what we needed. Some of the decor, though, seemed a bit "out of character" for an Irish pub. I was really impressed with both the variety & quality of... More
