Good food, huge portions

My son and I ate here after taking a dolphin and whale watching tour (reviewed separately). We had planned to drive partway home to eat but after our tour we were pretty hungry so we decided to give the Wharf a try.

We had a late dinner here (one of the last tables before they closed). But, the staff was very friendly and didn't mind we showed up late. The portions are huge. The seafood was fantastic! Even the kids meals and burgers are big. The soup and salads are fresh. No complaints from us about this restaurant!

Stopped here after the staff at Lewes Pirates Expedition recommend it, so glad we stopped. The scallops and Jumbo shrimp were AMAZING and they had a good kids menu. It's very clean and has a great view of the canal. We will be back the next time we visit Lewes.

We ordered the crab bruschetta. It was enough for 2 and delicious. We were lucky enough to be there when one of the fishing boats pulled in. It gave the kids something to watch and then watched the dog swim. Great good. Great view.

The Tuna, crab cakes, Flounder, Mahi Mahi, chicken sharing platter and the Fishermans platter all delicious. No complaints here and would recommend but is a little expensive around $20 a meal.

Back again to Lewes and cannot skip the Wharf on the canal. After a few years now, the Wharf has established itself as a different restaurant and bar for locals. That is, it is a hangout for afternoon and early evening. The restaurant tends to close earlier than other (9:30 to 10). Happy Hour is from 3-6. They always have... More

Their menu is a tad bit more limited than many places like it have, but everything they served was good and they did a decent job of satisfying the vegetarians in our group. The lobster seafood pot was good so were the Delaware Bay oysters.

let me start this by saying this is only about the indoor dining area, we didn't sit outside or at the bar so maybe they were better. I usually can find the good in anything, I'm not a complainer and don't usually write bad reviews but, I had to in this case. first of all the dining area has zero... More
