Loved the casual dining experience at Dolphin Striker. The restaurant had a feel of early times, not too chic or stuffy. Its what you expect when you are in a port town. Servers are knowledgable and friendly and food is very good. I can attest...More

Girls getaway weekend, this restaurant was recommended to us by Wentworth by Sea staff. It did not disappoint. We both had the sliders (one lobster & one cheeseburger) with French fries and a cocktail. Caramel white Russian I would definitely recommend it . . .

The location is nice, the building is beautiful, the history is rich but the menu should also be a part of history. It's not bad, its just not good. The food takes fresh ingredients and does the most boring recipe with them. Blackened fish with...More
