Cool Springs Fish Bar and Restaurant
Open since December 31, 1999, in Dover, Delaware, Cool Springs Fish Bar & Restaurant became a very popular statewide restaurant under the direction of Chef/Owner Dennis J. Forbes. He brought the old-style Seafood House into present times with his knack for simple seafood dishes of quality and consistency, with the addition of prime rib and excellent beef making it a well-rounded menu ending with award-winning house-made desserts. With the open display and modern deccor the restaurant represents the finest in dining in a casual, relaxed atmosphere in a neighborhood setting, with the foremost priority that the guests are well cared for, creating a dining experience that is one of enjoyment, comfort and satisfaction.
Well, we researched seafood restaurants in the Dover area and this one was the one we decided on....and we are glad we did! We have had dinner at other places in Dover in the past and we were not completely satisfied. The Cool Springs Restaurant certainly did not leave us unsatisfied! My husband and I both had the seafood bisque, stuffed rockfish, and chocolate white chocolate chesecake and we went for the heaven and hell cake also.....All of it was fantastic! Our waitress Jocelyn was great and we had a wonderful anniversary dinner. We intend to visit again when we return to the area. We highly recommend the restaurant on all points!
I have had the pleasure of dining at Cool Springs several times since they opened their doors.
I have NEVER been disappointed with either the FOOD or the SERVICE. In my opinion,
they easily compete with the many high end restaurants at the beach, without the outrageous
prices or the long drive (particularly in the summer). I ALWAYS take out of town visitors here
and they are amazed that Dover has a restaurant of this caliber. I RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY!
Whether you are dining with 2 or a group the service is always excellent, the food even better and the ambience is not your typical seafood fare around here where you hit your food with a mallet. This place is class personified and the wait staff and culinary experts are all very professional and courteous and offer nothing but the finest. I am a repeat customer and will continue to be. This is by far my favorite restaurant around.
Last time we went, I had a tuna steak with wasabi sauce and he had horseradish encrusted New York strip steak. They were both to die for. The place doesn't look like much from outside, but the food is absolutely delicious...
I can't say enough good about this restaurant. We went at 7:00 on a Friday, were seated almost immediately. The service was great, very attentive and while the wait staff kept checking on us, I didn't feel rushed to move through our meal. The food was to die for. We had the scallop appetizer, I loved it and I don't even like scallops. The salads had great dressing and were very good. Our main dishes were cooked just as requested and again I can't say enough good about it. I was stuffed after dinner, but figured we had to try dessert and it was awesome as well. Our bill was $80 for two people, including alcoholic beverages, appetizer and dessert which seemed like a very good deal for the quality of service and food we received.
