The tavern is centrally located in town with a lovely roof top deck overlooking the waterfall downtown. The staff is always so friendly, and accommodating. It is a very clean place with a bar and high top tables, with big windows overlooking all of downtown Dover. I absolutely love their mac & cheese, and spinach artichoke dip. My boyfriend likes the Margherita pizza as well, more often than not those are the 3 things we order.

We recently had a "Couples' Shower" for our daughter and future son-in-law at Thompson's Tavern and were very happy with everything they did for us. We had a large room for 3 hours and our 75 guests had plenty of good food to eat. The event could not have gone more smoothly or been improved upon in any way. If you live in the area and need a venue for an event: check out Thompson's Tavern!!!!

1st time here and will definitely be back..all because of the staff...and food. We went to the rooftop deck because the night was perfect for it. The waitress had to climb 2 sets of stairs to serve everyone up there but you wouldn't have known it. She was there every step of the way and right on time with all our needs. I never had an empty beer. We just got nachos but they were very good.

Came here on a Friday night and listened to some live music and had delicious food! It was my first time as well. Very nice place! Excellent atmosphere.

Thompson's tavern in downtown Dover is a great Sports Bar to stop in. Aside from being a sports bar they have great food and weekly specials. Tuesday night's is the $5 half pound burger with homemade chips for $5. Without a doubt the best burger in the area. Great wait staff also, it's always nice to see a pretty face behind the bar.
