Great view of the marina, near Henlopen State Park

Four of us went here one day for drinks, and the food looked good, so we came back for lunch after walking the Gordons Pond trail in Henlopen. Outside tables are perfect, as are the crab cakes, Parmesan fries, and coleslaw (I not only ordered coleslaw with my crab cake, but got extra as a side... read more

I have eaten both lunch "with the girls" and dinner with my husband and friends, both were enjoyable. The food was great. The Wharf is finally what it should have been years ago !

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat as we were leaving Lewes and had a fair meal. The house salad was more then excepted, blue chesse, bacon bits and a tasty dressing. The Mahi Mahi was a little under cooked and the rice needed a little kick. The cheesecake was disappointing, not real cheesy tasting.

Not really what I expected but ok, the view is great on the patio. That would be the best part, the food was nothing to be excited about.

The location here can't be beat. Atmosphere is electric by the water. I suggest being there when the boats come in to offload their fish. You can see the great catches of Tuna, if they were biting. From Lunchtime to about 5:00 is best. Food and service sometimes leave me wanting better. Sometimes I feel they don't match the location.... More

We stopped for lunch after getting off of the ferry. There is ample parking. The restaurant is on the water and has a large deck area, both open and covered. We sat under the roof on the deck since it started to rain. The service was excellent and our server was very familiar with the menu items. I had the... More

It was a great place to stop for a quick seafood lunch. We sat on their screened in out door seating area and watch their fishing tour boats load up. We had Blackened Tuna Salad, Hot Drunk Shrimp, Funder Po Boy, and a lot of chips with Old Bay. They were all great and one of the best around the... More

This was my third time there. Previous times it was great....Staff was nice etc...This time for dinner however it was less than avg. If you like a lot of food. Don't get the breaded Jumbo Shrimp meal. I was disappointed. They weren't that Jumbo and you get six of them. Last time I got a seafood pasta type meal and... More

If you go here to eat, I recommend the deck (which is very kid friendly - lots to see). Lots of fried selections on the menu - I prefer broiled seafood but we still enjoyed our meals. Three people had the flounder po' boy and I had the scallops. The breaded scallops were tasty and came with french fries and... More
