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.

Great Food! Fresh sea food, good drinks, friendly staff, nice atmosphere and decor! I suggest reservations on weekends, still worth the wait if you just walk in. Live music every weekend.

Met friends we had not seen for some time, was quiet enough to visit, the food was great. The wait staff was very good and tentative. Would go back, one of my favorite places and the price for a nice place was reasonable.

This is a Mundelein gem -- from the gracious hosts who greet you at the door to the friendly, efficient service. The seafood dishes are wonderful, and the Prime Rib (a monthly special -- August & September, most recently) is as good as any steakhouse....More

Have been here many times in the past. Bill always greets me by name and says hello as he hold hands with my girlfriend. The food has always been great as has the service.

If you're impressed by hipster guys with nasty full beards and sushi...just turn around and leave. It's the same as I remember from the early 90s when my bf and I dined and ordered off the honest-to-goodness "salad boat". As an aside we went there...More

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.

Suggest you call and ask - we are not aware one way or the other and again the last time we were there is making us not want to go back sadly yet for I presume some time way down the road.
