My boyfriend and I went to go here for dinner on a Friday night, but we told that they don't serve dinner on Fridays. Seriously!?!? I have never heard of that! And there website says nothing about that! Disappointed!

Happened upon this place on the bay side. Great location with sunset views across the bay. What impressed me the most was their informal taco bar. Fantastic tacos for $1.00, nachos and other selections, all I believe for $1.00 and I had some cocktail shrimp (6 huge shrimp for $4.00). Great friendly atmosphere. We'll definitely go back when we are... More

What a dump. Slow service, poor quality food, unhelpful manager. Worst restaurant experience I've had in several years. My family (group of 8 with 2 young children) ordered food including 2 all-you-can-eat crab legs. After sitting at the table for over 60 minutes we only received 1 refresh each between the two orders. That is not all-you-can eat. We we... More

This place was okay for a quick bite. More if a bar feel than restaurant. Good beers, terrific view, right on the water. Oysters were average, crab dip was decent. I would come here for drinks, probably not food. Plenty of other choices in the area.

My husband and I went to the Lighthouse for a quick bite after arriving to Dewey Beach. They had a surf and turf special for $19 and it was awesome. They have great dinner specials all week and live entertainment almost every night. It was nice to have dinner on the deck and at 9 the restaurant transformed around us... More

It was ok but this is not something you'd want to got to if you don't like sandwiches. This is mostly wat they have and there were only three people working the tables when I went there.

Started with the Crab Bisque it was excellent. For lunch had the crab patty sandwich and seasoned fries. Great meal. The seating was nice. There was a breeze across the bay. Service was great. Only down side was that the credit machine was down. Not a big deal because there was a mac machine inside. Overall a great lunch experience.

Food's good. Should have more seafood on the menu. Scenic views. On bay, next to Rudder at Ruddertowne. Drinks are a bit expensive, but so is every place in Dewey.
