Great date spot!

We ate dinner here and enjoyed the bread and the pulled pork. An Applebee's type environment but a bit more privacy. Very popular, so get there early! Ladies, be sure to check out the "lifeguards" in the restroom!

We revisited this place last week- almost a year since last dining here very happily. We could tell a lot of effort has been put into revising the menu and focusing on running an efficient and profitable business (maybe new management?) All that is working fine, but the food this time was just really poor. Except for the bread which... More

We've been there several times, the crab cakes are wonderful! My husband usually gets their BBQ, I've tasted it and it is soooo good. I love their jalapeno cole slaw, too.

The BBQ Ribs are excellent. I have been to Bethany Blues many times and always had an outstanding meal. If you like bourbon try the bourbon flight. They have a great selection.

Our grandchildren came to visit us this month from Florida. They were hungry for Pulled Pork sandwiches & there was a place there dad use to take them to here but that restaurant food t has gone down hill the past two years. So we talked them into trying Bethany Blues which has real smoked pork, you can even smell... More

Our recent experience at Bethany Blues in Lewes was as good as our previous vacation experience. Great casual atmosphere, attentive friendly service and of course, great barbeque food. A must visit for lunch or dinner when in the area.

Great Sunday Buffet. They had the typical waffle and omelet station and much more. Known for pulled pork and chicken it's available. Shrimp, clams, assorted vegetables, and to many other items to simply remember. This may have been my my first visit but I'm sure it will not be my last.

World's best brunch! It's expensive but is full of luxurious foods. The best cold smoked lox ever. Also large amounts of seafood, a waffle bar, kids only station, bagels, and mounds of barbeque!

The restaurant was hopping when we arrived on Saturday night. We were a group of six adults and two kids. There was a band playing which had us all clapping as we waited for our food. I gave 4 stars because the food was really good but the service (waitor) was really slow. If we had a different, more attentive... More

Ignore the t shirt sales. Just sit down and enjoy this neat family restaurant with great bbq food. Smoked first and then the sauce makes this restaurant a standout. Doesn't have that overly bbq taste where everything is gooey and sloppy. This is good down home cooking. Very very nice. This is not your average bbq joint. It's a real... More
