When we were leaving we realized we need to go... More

Loved the atmosphere. Live music outside was fun. Liked walking along the docks and seeing the boats come in after dinner. Had a big group of 6 adults and 5 kids and the service was excellent. Food was good - crabcake wasn't the best I've ever had but it wasn't the worst either. Oysters were phenomenal! So was the calamari!... More

We happened upon this restaurant after spending the morning on the pier at the State Park. We had 2 children and 5 adults and all left full and happy. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was chilly in the room and they graciously offered to turn off the ceiling fans for us before we even requested this. We... More

There were 4 adults and 2 small children in our party. When we arrived, the young female greeter seemed like she was in a daze. She couldn't decide where to put us, even though there were not that many people there. Finally, she asked whether we wanted to sit outside. We asked if there were many bugs, and she said... More

I had landed at other restaurants on the way through Lewes to Cape Henlopen and back again, and couldn't remember their names. On this trip, we drove through Lewes, saw a large sign that proclaimed "WHARF", by the water (promising) surrounded by boats (more promising) and went inside. The decor/ambience was simple (maybe because the emphasis is on great food... More

We landed here at the suggestion of a shop owner just across the canal. We had stopped at the state park on the way home from Rehoboth and afterwards to decided to visit the town.
