Established in 2010.
The Dover Forge Restaurant originally opened in 1961 and quickly became an après-ski and dinner favorite in the Mt. Snow Valley. By 2007 the property was in a sad state and the business was forced to close. In 2010, new owner Rich Caplan, purchased the restaurant and began the process of resurrecting the 'Forge' to its old glory. Today, Dover Forge Restaurant and One More Time Billiards Parlor & Tavern are back! We hope to continue serving West Dover for many more years.

My daughter had the ribs they were falling off the bone my friend had the barbecue combination platter and he loved it, I had the duck and it was great. Service was good and atmosphere was excellent. I would highly recommend going there after a long day of skiing. It is a little expensive but the food was good quality. I usually expect a pay a little bit more at a vacation spot. read lessJohn S.2/21/2020

I don't do restaurants often BUT Thursday's are AMAZING with Val at karaoke. I've been coming for 3 years now and love this place! When I do get food it's always quick, (although one time we had to wait an hour but the place was slammed so that's not their fault.) everything has always come out right, and very tasty! read lessNairobi H.1/20/2020

My fiancé and I came here as an engagement dinner and they surprised us with champagne, which was super sweet. Food was AMAZING. The steak was great and the creme brûlée' was delicious. We sat right by the fire place, which kept our dinner romantic and warm! We come to Vermont every winter and this is definitely our go to when we come! read lessJoyce C.1/05/2020

So we went to the adjoining bar and pool hall. The menu is almost identical and we were able to order the same thing we would have had in the regular restaurant. We thought the pool hall ended up being the better option. The wait for our food was very long. We passed the time playing several rounds of pool and cocktails. It was so much fun! The salads were huge and are more like dinner portions. Pulled bbq pork was incredible! Perfect amount of sweetness and smokiness! Definitely coming back again but heading to the pool hall! There's also ping pong and darts!!! read lessChristina S.1/04/2020

My steak frites were fantastic! Perfectly cooked steak, awesome aioli, and perfect crispy fries and Brussels. My hubby's BBQ platter was delicious as well.

I ordered a Stella beer and I wasn't sure what to order for food. I decided to go big and order the Half Rack of Ribs. I ordered the ribs with a side of coleslaw and mac and cheese. The plate came with pickles and cornbread. The ribs were fall off the bone and the cornbread was really good. The pickles were a bonus. It was one of the best meal I have had in a while. Dover Forge Restaurant has some great comfort food. read lessMichelle P.7/19/2019

Snow for a number of years and trying different establishments. This past weekend we came to Dover Forge for the first time and it's one of our favorites in the area. Great attentive service and delicious food! We had the bolognese special, the Osso Buco (shank) and the links. The links were just ok, but the bolognese and Osso Buco were great! Our youngest had the steak off the kids menu and that was cooked perfectly and delicious! I'd highly recommend Dover Forge and it is now one of our go-to places in the area. read lessDan L.2/19/2019

The bar is called One More Time and is owned by the same people who own The Forge. We sat down and asked for a wine list. Low and behold they had Stags Leap Artemis for sale by the glass. This wine is usually found only by the bottle and at, in my experience, a much higher price. I went next door as opening time approached and met Alan, the General Manager, he told me he was booked but the tables around the bar were first come first served. There was a very good chance that we would get one of those due to the fact we were next door. 5 minutes later he came and informed us that he had a reservation cancel and we could have the table
He noticed we were drinking the Artemis and engaged us in conversation. It added to the already good feeling we had about the restaurant which was referred by a bartender at the village pub. This carried on after we were seated. Overall a feeling of comfort. Now to the meal.....
We ordered the chilled seafood appetizer, crab claws, shrimp and cocktail sauce. Very good. Next my wife ordered the "Wet Bones" appetizer for dinner. Short ribs that literally fell off the bone. Excellent. I ordered the crispy duck, which is iffy at best in many restaurants, the chef NAILED IT!!! Crispy outside, tender inside and moist, wonderful flavor. We have already made our next reservation. A must for dinner. Reservation recommended. A few times during the meal Alan came over to check on us, we felt like the meal's effect on us was important to him. A definite plus. In all the experience was among the top 10 in our dining experiences. Highly recommended. Bon appetit!!0 read lessMark M.2/18/2019

Snow for 7 years and always struggle to find a place that can seat a big group and get a great meal. Tonight we found our answer at Dover Forge. All 8 of us lived out meals and the service was great.

We were seated right in front of the fireplace. It's -3 tonight,with windchill of -26. The waitstaff was wonderful. Our mules were generous and delicious. Margarita and traditional. Fried pickles were amazing and almost too plentiful. Onion soup was a classic example. Smoked bacon meatloaf was spectacular. Kale salad with salmon was an incredible entree, with a full entree sized portion of salmon- crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Great experience. The host was so delightful. He clearly loves this role. Will be back. read lessSarah C.1/21/2019

Every pin on Pinterest i fell in love with that i never thought could become a reality did all because of Alan. He was so easy to work with he went above and beyond to make sure every one of our needs were met. The food was incredible! I cannot say enough of about the food. Everyone had the most amazing time we are from Long Island and 110 people traveled here and are still talking about our wedding how it was one of the best they've been to. I would recommend this place OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. read lessAshley M.10/28/2018

I would recommend it to anyone and everyone I know back in New York, Long Island, Jersey, and Los Angeles. Anyone who vacations in the Dover /Wilmington area and or lives there. I gear this toward visitors, only because I doubt that theres anyone in the community that hasn't been there and doesn't already love it. Not only is it a beautiful restaurant with the sweetest staff you'll ever meet, the food is second to none, with the freshest of ingredients that you can see both in taste and presentation, are cooked with love and attention to detail. Allen the manager greets his guests like family, which always makes a place extra special to me. You just don't get that everywhere. He smiles from his heart and you can feel it. It seems the whole place has a whole lot of heart in it. The nightlife here is also amazing. The staff in the back bar are excellent and the bartenders in both the restaurant bar and the back bar are exceptional. They have open mic nights too in addition to live music which is excellent. The band that night was a beautiful girl with an amazing acoustic guitar player and singer male partner. They were awesome. I love this place read lessJessica S.1/23/2018
