Little hard to get into and not much parking but does have good food and daily specials which change every day.

Fairly standard diner menu. Chicken noodle soup was tasty, but had to send back to get reheated. Tuna melt was okay but a bit on the greasy side. Had a good taste and tuna salad was obviously freshly made.

Formerly the Capitol One Diner, now with a new name, new owners, and a new coat of paint. A place we had been to several times over the past year, and were never disappointed. On our first visit with a new name, new owners, and a new coat of paint, we were pretty disappointed. First impression, the place was dirty.... More

Not what it once was until the old owner passed away, Before the food and service were excellent. Now both are mediocre at best. I don't think we will return.

We went here for breakfast. Had cranberry pancakes with "Craisins", fatty Canadian Bacon, Luke warm, tasteless hash browns, gloppy eggs Benedict, which were smothered in a yellow, coagulated thick "hollondaise sauce". Coffee weak and utensils dirty. Two days later my digestive system is still recovering.

I eat breakfast at the Capital One Diner in Dover every week. Their portions are totally a meal. Whether a good size omlette, pancakes or eggs I have never had a bad meal. While I have not eaten lunch or dinner here I hear the meals are just as good with daily specials. Stop in and try it for yourself.... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. This little dinner has a great atmosphere and very reasonable priced. The serving sizes were large the food was a nice country style. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good but cheap meal after gambling at dover downs.

Will definitely return. Amazing value for the money. Crab soup was outstanding. I would like to try other things. Crab cake was great. Mac and cheese was not. Rice pudding was also wonderful.

I stopped by and thought it was not a busy time, had one of the best burger's i have ever had. Though not the trendiest decor, but clean, and fine... the waitress was friendly. I ordered water, was asked if I wanted lemon and instead of a narrow lemon slice I could hardly see, it was two nice chunks of... More
