Good Crabcakes & Great Atmosphere!

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.

Anxious for a late lunch, we dropped into Jerry's on impulse. Turned out great! Service was a bit slow due to a shortage of wait staff (the summer hires had gone back to college) but the remaining folks were congenial and tried very hard (mostly successfully.) The menu was extensive with seafood specialties. My favorite was the fried oyster sandwich;... More

Food was fine, many dishes were dirty, and the waitress was terrible. I worked for many years as a server and have never seen this type of attitude. She brought us bread with a hair on it. I took it back to her because she was hard to locate. And she never brought another. When asked, she wanted to know... More

We wanted to eat at the Buttery, but there was a long wait, and I'm sure worth it, but we were ready for dinner after our nice ferry trip from Cape May. My husband ordered fish and chips and I ordered their specialty "crab bomb". Boy, was it wonderful! Expensive, but there was very little filler in it so it... More
