We were seated quickly in an area we requested..got our drinks quickly but a super fun waitress that was knowledgeable about the menu,too. We ordered apps that came out quickly even though the restaurant was quite crowded and our entrees didn’t take too long either. All of us thouroughly enjoyed our food! 5 stars for sure!read more

We stopped in coming out of town after the beach yesterday. Two sets of very hot, miserable twins. They couldn’t have been more accommodating. Beautifully redone. Staff was awesome. Very friendly. Even made the older twins some kind of cool drink. I had a Patron Margarita and I’m a pain when it comes to food allergies � Our waitress was AWESOME! I think her name was Leslie. Really sweet and ON IT. Food was delicious. I had a blackened chicken salad recommended by Leslie. Chicken was cooked perfectly. Greens were REAL greens - it was probably the best salad I’ve ever had out! Great live music. Great place ��read more

It took a while to be convinced this place had actually changed. But, what a surprise! The entire place is redone. The outside deck is the perfect afternoon happy hour! Josh at the bar is always on top of things. A little better variety of craft beer selections would have been nice. Jess was our server on the deck and she was amazing, attentive, and great fun to spend our first happy hour in Lewes! Our smorgasbord of appetizers was the best I've had downtown in many years! Dont miss out on the poutine! We will be back and don't change a thing!read more

After having a terrible experience at a Wildwood NJ Restaurant, we decided to take the ferry across and this place was highly rated online. So we stopped. The staff was polite, the food was amazing, and the prices were reasonable. Highly recommend!

Food and service was great. This is exactly what Lewes needed. The prices are reasonable for the location. My only suggestion is that they buy some bike racks. Parking will be tough in Summer and they should encourage bike riders.

Yes, there are kinks to be worked out. But we were a party of 12, arrived about 5:30 and were seated by 6. Our service was excellent and friendly. Oysters were very good, dinner was more than good enough. Beer choices were good, as were the mixed drinks. Mistakes were corrected quickly, which is all you can ask of a new restaurant that's busy from the first day. They were out of several entrees, which was disappointing but understandable. I think this place will earn a regular spot in our rotation. Welcome to Lewes!read more

We had the crab bisque and the short rib nachos. Delicious! The place is gorgeous, and the wait staff was great. Can’t wait to go back and sample more from the menu, and sit outside on the deck when it gets warmer (if it ever does lol)
