Late Night Snack and Great Music!

We were here on a weekend night for a late bite to eat and were pleasantly surprised to find live music! Food was good and we will definitely return again!

I've dined at Jerry's before and received mediocre to decent service and food depending on the occasion. Most of this review revolves around my disappointment in Jerry's parking lot monitoring practices. Recently the weekend my family was out in Lewes to celebrate my 82 year old grandmother's birthday at a nearby restaurant (not Jerry's). Not being intimately familiar with the... More

First of all, Jerrys Seafood is a tenant in the building located at 108 Second Street. The parking lot DOES NOT belong to them. Secondly, there are AMPLE postings on the fence that says DO NOT PARK HERE...UNAUTHORIZED VEHICLES WILL BE TOWED AT OWNERS EXPENSE. Those parking spaces are PAID SPACES, PAID for by tenants who live on the second... More

Having seen the previous reviews it was with some trepidation that we went here for dinner on New Years Eve. We were shown to a table as far back in the restaurant as you could go. We asked to sit nearer to other diners and the host looked at us as if we had asked for the holy grail. She... More

Chris B, General Manager at Jerry's Seafood, responded to this review

In this country, especially on a holiday, most restaurants seat by reservation (those booking early can ask for a certain table). You can't just sashay in and expect to be seated at a table of your choice. You were seated at a table in the private dining room along with about 12 other people. Our policy is to uncork or...

Frequent this restaurant often. They have excellent crabcakes (no filler) and a wonderful rockfish salad. Have come here with a group of 6+ and no waiting. Check out the shops in town after a good meal.

This restaurant is way over priced. The staff is unfriendly. It's a beautiful town and there are much better places to eat. I won't be going there again. We arrived one day when the bar was open and they seated us at a table. After we sat there for a while the waitress came over for our drink order. When... More

Jerry's has a good seafood menu however their crab bomb is a bomb. No flavor and very disappointing.

The service was excellent and I hate to be negative with such nice wait staff but the food was disappointing and the place was a little depressing. All the other restaurants around were packed but Jerry's had lots of empty tables and now I know why. Menu should be smaller so they can concentrate on getting it right. Terrible wine... More

Typical seafood restaurant in quiet, downtown Lewes. Food was good, but service is wanting. Our waitress disappeared for no apparent reason and service was completed by another staff member - maybe just an anomaly.

Chris B, Owner at Jerry's Seafood, responded to this review

Jerry's waitstaff "team waits" which is why the server that delivered your meal may have been a different person than the one who took your order. We believe that we give better customer service by utiliizing this approach. Additionally, the building is very long and narrow, lots of steps in between the front dining room and the kitchen. We are... More

Bad food. Bad service. Bad music. Our margaritas that when we ordered were asked whether salt or none, and we said none, came with salt. Tasted more like OJ than a cocktail. Bread plates never used because at the end of the meal when I asked the server what they were for and she said bread, and I said we... More

We stopped in for crab, and although the crab itself was very good the service was terrible, and the menu is completely overpriced. It's a greasy spoon locale that just happens to have great crab.
