This place is pricey, but it's in a prime location in a shore town, so that is expected. My wife and I both ordered a drink and both were delicious. We sat outside on a beautiful day. We started with the Thai Calamari which is spicy and delicious. My wife ordered the crab cake sandwich and I ordered the Tuna... More

After brousing the craft fair at the Historical Society in Lewes, we crossed the drawbridge for lunch at the Whart. We had a great seat at the deck's edge and watched the parade of boats and people coming under the bridge. The entertainment of the day was an adorable yellow lab who dove in the water time and again to... More

Our lunches were a Fishcake sandwich and Mediterranean Salmon Salad. I had coleslaw with the sandwich and the Mediterranean salad came with a few small pieces of salmon. The salad greens were fresh and the salmon was good; the vinaigrette on the side was ok. The Cod fish cake was served with a nice red onion jam. The sandwich filling... More

I ate here with my husband and 12 year old son. We were looking for somewhere different to go. We have driven by this restaurant for years on our way to the beach and have never stopped (my in- laws live in Milford and prefer to eat in town, rather than at the shore points). Boy, have we been missing... More

You can't beat the food or the portions, as this is real Philly food, not tourist trap blah! Price is as expected in a tourist area. The only thing they might change is to realize that bartending is an art form, not a speed race. The bartenders are owner/relatives, understandably so they can keep the tips, but they don't have...

Instead of the unapologetically poor service and mediocre food we had at another nearby "seafood-themed" establishment, The Wharf was wonderful. Try the Boston Bass and housemade french fries with Sriracha ketchup. Sitting on the deck adds to the atmosphere.

We went to the Warf for dinner because of the long wait at Stripper Bites. No one we spoke to about where to eat had mentioned it, so we had very low expectations and were very pleasantly surprised. The mussels we amazing - I wanted to lick the bowl clean to get every bit of the marinara sauce and the... More

This place has a great atmosphere out on the deck over looking the wharf. The prices are a bit expensive for the portions given. Drinks are also on the high side. The food was very good. Will probably go again because we had a great time. They feature live entertainment regularly.
