Cool Springs is one of my favorites! We don't get to go very often, but whenever we have the opportunity we do! Stuffed rockfish is my favorite, but everything is delicious!! The food tastes fresh and everyone who works there is so nice! If you like seafood I would definitely recommend it!

Had a very good dinner. Ordered the Grilled Seafood Quartet, and everything was prepared very well. Would have liked it even better if there was some other kind of seafood instead of two types of fish (i.e. shrimp, scallops, fish, and something else). Would definitely go back if in the area again.

By far the best evening meal in Dover. Always freshly prepared seafood (and steaks) with great service.

The bread is lame and needs to be stepped up to an artisan level for the prices they charge. Salad needs real greens not... More
