The city of Dover is home to a bustling nightlife, a thriving arts community and numerous antique shops. The city's many shops and restaurants are located on the tree-lined streets of its quaint downtown area in the shop fronts of colonial era buildings. Dover is a nice place to visit for a romantic getaway, and several cuisine options are available to cap off you and your loved one's special day in Delaware.
Fraizer's restaurant is located on East Loockerman Street in the heart of downtown Dover. The establishment is located within walking distance to the Schwartz Center for the Arts, which makes it an option for couples for pre-and-post show dining. The restaurant is home to the only waterfront patio in the city, where guests can dine while looking out onto the slow moving waters of the St. Jones River. The patio also featuers an outdoor deck section which offers couples the option of al fresco dining during the spring and summer months. The American style menu features fresh seafood, grilled steaks and gourmet salads.
Doc Magrogan's Oyster House
Doc Magrogan's Oyster House is fashioned after a 1900s Delaware oyster house, complete with rich dark wood floors and dimly lit tables. The restaurant specializes in fresh seafood, handcrafted beers and imported wines. Located adjacent to the North Dover Shopping Center, the restaurant is a nice option for couples out for a night of shopping, or for parents of students at nearby Delaware State University. Couples can also dine at the establishment's expansive bar, which occasionally features live music.
JP's on the Wharf
JP's on the Wharf is located 20 minutes south of downtown Dover in neighboring Frederica. The restaurant is located directly on the banks of the Murderkill River, directly across the street from the Bowers Beach Access Area. The restaurant's riverfront dining room is decorated in an upscale, rustic nautical motif where guests have enjoyed their elaborate menu of fresh seafood for over 17 years. Couples who like to dance and enjoy live music will appreciate the restaurant's expansive stage and dance area, where despite some raucous evenings a slow tune always caps off the night.
