About Dover Straits
Since 1978, Dover Straits has proudly offered the finest selection of fresh seafood and exquisite service. Owned and operated by seven brothers from Greece, Dover Straits focuses on treating every guest like family. Having established ourselves as a premier seafood restaurant, the brothers opened their second location in Hoffman Estates in 1989. Both restaurants offer the finest & freshest selection of seafood, while providing guests with a comfortable & relaxed dining experience.
If you were to tour Europe between England and France, you might have the opportunity to stand on the rocky cliffs of a body of water known as The Straits of Dover. This channel has the most ideal waters with just the right temperature for all types of fish, which is why we've proudly adopted the name to reflect our fine seafood.
This suburban seafood oasis caters to quiet couples and multi-generational families, with comfortable dining booths and a welcoming bar. Laden with rigging and relics, the sedate nautical atmosphere perks up with dancing to a live musical combo on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.
Famous extensive menu of seafood flown in daily, Dover Straits also offers premium steaks, pasta dishes and other fine selections for the most discerning diner. The moderately priced menu of traditional seafood--along with several non-seafood selections--is headlined by higher-ticket items like Australian lobster tail and king crab legs. Appetizers include clam chowder soup and a captain's platter combo, a generous starter of standard oysters Rockefeller, clams oreganotta, crisp fried calamari and smoky barbecued ribs. The signature Dover sole amandine is firm-fleshed and succulent; flounder Wellington with shrimp, scallops and spinach in phyllo pastry with lobster sauce is a richer option.
