Went recently to celebrate a friends engagement. We were greeted not so warmly, "do you have a gift card or here for restaurant week?" No and no. Should that matter? I found the food to be ok, the bisque starter was probably my favorite part....More

Koz (the owner) was nice and socializing even thought it was a busy night. He made sure "everything was ok and if there was anything else we needed". The bartenders and servers were quick, courteous and engaging. The food (I had the "cowboy steak") was...More

Went for dinner. Our table ordered fillet x2 and lobster and crab stew. The server was excellent! The stew was good, except it didn't taste like seafood. It tasted like pumpkin. There was no visual evidence that would suggest this stew was seafood. Not sure...More

We are the first true prime steakhouse in the state of NH featuring dry-aged steaks and Wine Spectator award winning wine list. Opened in 2004 by acclaimed CIA chef, Chris "Koz" Kozlowski, the restaurant garnered the prestigious "Hidden Jewel" award from the Phantom Gourmet in 2013. Chef Koz is the only chef to receive this award twice in the state of NH. The restaurant is located in an old firehouse building located right downtown Dover. The downstairs is more elegant with white tablecloths and chandeliers. The upstairs is called the Top of the Chop and features a more casual atmosphere with a lighter "Rustic Menu". In the warmer months, you can have dinner outside on the Terrace, our outdoor deck. We also have a full kids menu.
