Fish tacos the best

Enjoyed an off season lunch with fish tacos, guacamole sampler, and margaritas to die for! Maybe the crowds are still like in season but at 12 noon on a Saturday we were lucky to get a seat without an hour wait!!

Three friends went to Lewes for a girls' weekend. We had heard about Agave and the long waits, but since it was December, in the middle of the day, and off season, we decided to try it. We were seated at a table for four and ordered margaritas which were good - not outstanding, but good. After finishing our entrees,... More

The wait is always long and I've got the feeling the last few times I've been here that the establishment thinks that since they are so 'popular' that they don't have to have great service, be friendly or ever add anything to the menu... The place is really small so it's always busy.

I have been to this restaurant several times and this is the last time. The attitude from all the service staff is your lucky to be here. Starting from the hostess, which they always say will be a 3 hour wait. The hostess staff could care less if you stay or go. The waitress is so non engaging until it... More

Not the best meal and long wait. Stick with drinks and appetizers entrées are so-so. Service upstairs was almost nonexistent and indifferent attitudes made a poor first impression .

Very friendly staff, reminds me of being in Mexico. Great Margarita's, Salsa very good but chips on the thick and heavy side! Will try other dishes next time, didn't care for the Fish Taco, too much puffy pastry and not enough of fish!

You will love it. Food is consistantly fresh and well prepared! They the Mango salad,just great! Or the fillet mignon quesadilla, melt in your mouth, superb. Only complaint, tables are too small for four people. So go as a couple.

I went here for the 1st time yesterday. I had chicken enchiladas and guacamole with chips. The sauce for the enchiladas was the best I have ever tasted. The rice was also quite good. The guacamole was plain. They have several different kinds so maybe their other kinds are good. I'm not giving five stars only because of how expensive... More

First, go outside regular lunch/dinner hours. Consider a late lunch or an early dinner. Call it "Linner"! Friends of ours had recently tried to eat dinner here and had not been able to do so due to the lines (no reservations). We went at 3 p.m. and were seated right away. Happy Hour prices apply to table seating as well,... More

Waited a long time to be seated but we expected that and went across the street to Rose & Crown for drinks. The Guacamole with Gouda & Pumpkin seeds was awesome as were the fish tacos and corn on the cob were also delicious.
