At Wilkinson Homes, our team is always on the lookout for incredible places where our homeowners can set down their roots—and with the fall months now upon us and the temperatures beginning to dip, there is nothing that sounds more appealing than cozying up in a local restaurant for some incredible delicacies. We have a number of highly sought-after new home communities throughout the entire state of Delaware, but with our Noble’s Pond, Forty Nine Pines, and Weatherstone Crossing in or near the capitol city—read on to see a few of our favorite spots to frequent around Dover.

Stunning seafood establishments

Without a doubt, we have to start off with some of our favorite seafood hangout spots in the area—and Cool Springs Restaurant is first up on our list. The chef’s use fresh, local ingredients every day—making everything on the menu the perfect meal.

If you’re looking for a mix of everything, the Grey Fox Grille and Public House is the place to be. With steak and seafood options, an incredible brunch on Sundays and an unbeatable atmosphere within the 19th century restored Victorian house—this isn’t a spot you’ll want to miss out on. 

Classic Italian cuisine 

Sometimes, there’s nothing that sounds better on a cold fall night than filling up on pasta and breadsticks—so whenever the mood strikes, you’ll always be able to find the perfect place to go. 

If you’re looking for a romantic night on the town—there’s no better place to go than Roma Italian Ristorante. This upscale Italian establishment first began as a casual pizzeria in 1973 and has transformed throughout the years—without losing any of its high-quality recipes—into a fine-dining experience complete with a Sul Tempo Cocktail Lounge. 

Sometimes, a casual destination is all you really need, though, and when that’s the case, Vincenzo’s Pizzeria and Gelato is unbeatable. While the name says pizzeria and gelato, the establishment has a menu so extensive you will always be able to find a new favorite. 

Favorite late night finds

Sometimes, the best way to end a night out is by stopping by your favorite pub for a late night burger and beer, and Restaurant 55 always hits the spot. As a family-owned restaurant, the atmosphere never fails to elevate any night out. 

When everything on the menu always hits the spot, sometimes one location simply isn’t enough. With three locations scattered throughout the state of Delaware in Newark and Dover, McGlynn’s Pub & Restaurant never disappoints. With incredible food and drinks to enjoy at any time of the day and a number of events hosted at all three locations throughout the year—it’s never a bad time to stop by for a bite.
