Cool Springs Fish Bar and Restaurant

Dover, DE
  • Food and Drink


You name it, Cool Springs has it, from clams to crab cakes to rockfish stuffed with crab imperial.

From 2012:

Favorites like crab-stuffed rockfish and delectably simple preparations such as grilled sea bass over asparagus show why chef Dennis Forbes’ Cool Springs Fish Bar & Restaurant
is a classic.

From 2009:

Cool Springs Fish Bar and Restaurant is where S. Renee Smith takes her out-of-town clients for a special meal. “It’s a great place to introduce someone who’s new to the city,” she says. “I love the atmosphere. It’s artsy, which means you don’t feel like you’re in Dover until you step out the door again.” Customers dining at the multi-colored bar enjoy the privilege of watching chef-owner Dennis Forbes and his staff at work in the kitchen. Smith says everything on Forbes’ menu is of great quality and the customer service is outstanding. Favorite fish dishes at Cool Springs include honey-bourbon salmon, Parmesan-crusted swordfish and stuffed flounder. The shellfish pan roast is the stuff of legend, and the seafood bisque, one of a 16-soup arsenal, sells out every time it’s served. When Smith, a frequent traveler, is in town, Cool Springs is simply her place. “When I do have a moment,” she says, “I want to eat real food.”
