Great little grill

Great place to sit and enjoy watching the ferry crossing and have some food and drinks. There is also a small play area for kids.

This is the restaurant at the Cape May- Lewes Ferry Terminal. In warm weather the burgers are grilled right by the docks- fun to watch the activity of the bay and enjoy very good food and drinks

Nice to sit out and watch the ferry come and go. Sometimes there's music and right now a tall ship is docked.

Beautiful evening on the water, with a light breeze. The french fries loaded with crab dip were yummy. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My kids said the burgers were of average quality. The home made potato chips were crisp, salty, and delicious.

If you rather have good food before or after the ferry this is the place to go. They have a nice bar for drinks or if like us you want a quick bite to eat before getting on the Ferry this is the place to go. They have a decent menu with nice size portions. And what better view than... More
