Our waitress, Tayna, was a waitress, who we felt did not want to be there. After taking our order, about 10 minutes passed, she brought out food for the next table, who ordered after us. Then proceeded to ask me what kind of toast I wanted with my eggs ?? The food came out, my daughter ordered pancakes w/strawberries. The... More

Every month a group of friends go to the Golden Dove for breakfast. We usually have the same waitress that takes care of us. The food here is good and the prices are reasonable. For a good breakfast stop on in and see for yourself.

On a Wednesday have the Chicken and Dumplings. Big portion for lunch and you can have a second bow, but one was enough. Comes with a Salad and desert. Good basic food at a good price. Don't let the outside of the building fool you good food and good service. Will definitely make this a future stop.

Every month I meet friends at the Golden Dove for breakfast. We have our own table and the same waitress each time. The food is very good and our service has been great. You should try it out for yourself.

We were getting hungry as we crossed into Delaware on our way back to DC after Thanksgiving and, thanks to the miracle of TripAdvisor, we were able to find the Golden Dove just off the first exit south of the bridge. Though it has something of a "land-that-time-forgot" look, the menu is encyclopedic in diner range, the prices are totally... More

Staff is friendly all hours of the day and food is great. I go for breakfast at least once a week. I do not think I have waited more than 10 minutes for my food. For dinner I go with the Mona Lisa aka Eggplant dish or the all you can eat chicken and dumplings on Weds & Sundays. The... More

We love the breadth of choices available on the menu here, it's atypical of a diner in our experience. Reasonable prices make for an even better experience. Certainly not the best food we've had, but for the price, it's a great place. They have a good selection of cakes and pies for desserts as well. The interior is dated a... More

This is the kind of place we like to find. The menu is extensive--chicken, pork, beef, seafood--and all at reasonable prices. My roast beef and gravy came piled high--a mountain. I had sides of deep-fried mushrooms and warm applesauce. My companion had crab-stuffed flounder with a tossed salad and baked potato (described as tasty). Warm rolls accompanied the entrees and...
