“Great night”

September 3, 2016

Great place! Great food, great people, great service! Cannot ask for better food or a better dining experience. I came in with 2 extremely grumpy and hungry children and over the course of the evening grumpiness was replaced with smiles and laughter. I could go on and on and on about this place - they even have an outdoor area with horseshoes and a fire pit and an indoor bar are with ping pong and pool! We will definitely be back and many thanks to everyone at the restaurant for a delicious meal and fun night!

“Awesome meal!”

“You've Got To Visit Here”

"Let me begin with full disclosure---I am a BIG fan of Dover Forge and have been so for a long time. But this week Chef Adam has outdone himself. With general manager Alan, they put together a "blueberry" based menu to help celebrate the Valley's Blueberry Festival, which continues through next weekend, August 6-7. The "wet bone" rib appetizer was amazing with its blueberry sauces but I couldn't get over the pull pork dinner that too was covered with an amazing blueberry topping. My wife had blueberry covered wings, which were incredible. And yes, the staff are super friendly, attentive, and great folks."

“Excellent dinner”

"Went here with my husband, brother and sister-in-law. What great food! My SIL and I split the dry rub chicken since we had eaten a late lunch. Came with really great slaw and sweet potato fries. Yummy. Also at the table were the combo platter with a half rack of ribs and pulled pork and the smoked bacon wrapped meat loaf. All of us loved our meals. Husband enjoyed the maple syrup bourbon Manhattan. Will pick up some maple syrup tomorrow so he can try to make it when we get home. Our waitress, Andrea, made some great suggestions with our choices and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our visit plus she has a great sense of humor. Just sorry we were too full to try the maple/Rosemary creme brûlée. Wish we were going to be in the area longer so we could go back. Giving this a superior rating."

"Loved the food- I had an amazing hummus, roasted veggie, and pita appetizer as my meal and I was STUFFED by the end of it. Delicious. Their blueberry mojito was also really tasty, plenty of fresh mint and huge blueberries!"

"Top Notch Catering! The Dover Forge catered our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner; Alan and his staff made the rehearsal dinner a stress free event. Alan was also super during the months leading up to the dinner with his planning and ideas. We would give 10 stars if we could!"

"The food is excellent, particularly the pulled pork. The smoke flavor is outstanding and the pork is always juicy. Tonight I had the hummus for the first time. OMG! Best hummus I've ever had! "

'Another great meal'
Went to the Dover Forge this past weekend with my wife. Decided on fine dining instead of burgers so we headed to the dining room. My wife had the salmon and thought it was the best. I tried the special, Braised boneless ribs, absolutely the best I've had. Rebecca was very friendly and charming. We can't wait to go back.

Good food and atmosphere. Dining area is nice, but pretty casual! Clean and high quality food without being to upscale. My type of place...Much nicer than say Outback but still a comfortable vibe. Overall would definitely recommend. Get the N.Y. Strip.

Interesting and varied menu and every dish was delicious! We were able to try a lot of dishes in our group of 8. We definitely will enjoy this pleasant restaurant with a great, friendly wait staff again.
