First ferry trip

Arrived at ferry early so went to outside bar for a few drinks. Was basically ignored by older female bartender( for one and 1/2 hours while there) while she hung and laughed with her friends at bar. Maggie, the other bartender, with a clue, picked up her slack and was tipped accordingly. Maggie... read more

On The Rocks Bar & Grill is located in the Cape May/Lewes Ferry terminal. It is a nice little place to sit and have a few drinks. They do have a food menu with a decent assortment of items such as steamed clams, burgers, fries, grilled fish, chicken wraps, etc. There is a menu posted online. I ordered a house... More

This is a unique place. It was clearly established to serve travelers waiting to embark on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry on their way to NJ. It is an outdoor bar, with stools in a square with the servers and grill in the center. It looks like there are some regulars at the bar. There are also many picnic-style round tables... More

My mom and I were going to Lewes for shopping and she wanted to eat on the water. We usually go to Jakes for a crab cake, but wanted to do something different this time. I Googled places to eat on the water and 3 places came up. Reviews were pretty bad for all 3 so I decided I would... More

We ate dinner here after a trip to Cape May on the Ferry with 5 small children. With outdoor seating and free mini golf and a playground right next to our table it was a gem. The service was swift and friendly. Our waitress couldn't have been more accommodating. Burgers are grilled right outside and arrived as ordered. The homemade... More

Love the location, outside on the water front. They added a seating area with waitress service. They have a few items to their menu to make it a little more varied. Would like to see more added. But the food has always been good and fresh. The coconut shrimp is a definite favorite.

After a long hot day of biking through Rehobeth Beach, when we got back to Cape May we decided to try a drink and appetizers at on the rocks bar and Grill. The long island ice teas are very pricey at $10 each but pretty good. Our appetizers consisted of the Ahi tuna, and six Cape May salt oysters on... More

Thoroughly enjoyed stopping here after being on the beach all day! We sat outside and our server was quickly asking for our drink order which arrived just as quickly. We both ordered burgers with chips (not fries though they were available). We sat watching the Ferry dock and load up which is quite impressive! Our food arrived hot and tasty.... More

Fabulous location to sit and have a drink while you wait for your ship to come in. Just wish they still had live music!
