New seafood dishes at Doc Magrogan’s in Dover

Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House in Dover has revamped half of its menu and now offers popular dishes at its Sea Isle City, New Jersey location, which opened last summer.

The Delaware Restaurant is located inside Dover Downs. Restaurateur Dave Magrogan and Executive Chef Sean McKeever have spent the past two years revamping Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House.

Since opening less than eight months ago, Doc Magrogan’s in Sea Isle City has become one of the Dave Magrogan Group’s (DMG) busiest restaurants. In addition to seafood restaurants, Magrogan owns and operates seven Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bars from Florida to Mid-Atlantic with two more opening in 2017.

The company’s focus has evolved from a wide variety of raw, fried and traditional seafood compositions to a menu featuring more local and sustainable seafood.

“The Dover Downs menu had been in place for some time and we decided late last year it was time for a change,” McKeever said. “It was also a no-brainer to feature some of the most popular dishes from our incredibly busy new location in Sea Isle City, as these compositions have been so well received by our guests and the press.”

While Dover Doc’s retains some of the menu’s classics, such as the Crab Cake Sandwich; Doc’s famous crab cakes; the classic filet and lobster roll; and Little Neck Steamers, McKeever added a bowl of spicy shrimp noodles; Tuna Tartare with Watermelon; pan-fried scallops; and a blackened ahi tuna dish that uses local corn and tomatoes.

Other dishes brought to the Dover menu include mango barbecue ribs with honey jalapeño cornbread and jicama salad; Lemon Thyme Chicken with Fennel Arugula and Roasted Tomato Salad with Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes; Mussels spiced with chorizo ​​in a pilsner beer sauce; and cedar-roasted salmon with seasonal vegetables and roasted red potatoes.
