Have been a patron here for years. Service and menu has been consistently excellent. Always feel welcome whether it be a special occasion or general visit. All staff are pleasant and professional. Last surviving of great restaurants! Salad boat is fresh and great variety.

This is the friendliest quality eatery I know of. Their early dining options are very affordable for high end dining. Never had a bad meal there in 30 years.

Slightly dated decor, but good service with lots of available tables and booths. Variety of fresh seafood dishes and salad boat that allows you to custom build a salad. Overall enjoyable place for family dinner out.

Not being a fish lover, the food at Dover Straits in A1+, whether it be fish or steaks (I've had both), along with their salad bar, sides & desserts. The atmosphere is elegant & the service is outstanding.

There is no dress code. I have been there in a skirt (top too, dressy or not)) or nice slacks, but also have been there in jeans.
