Worth a Visit

This is an interesting waterfront bar and grill adjacent to the ferry docks. We stopped in to have dinner before the last ferry of the day - but this is not "fast food". Were told there was not enough time for the kitchen to prepare our dinner selections before the boat's departure time. We... read more

On the rocks is located at the ferry landing in Lewes. We stopping at the landing to purchase tickets for our trip the following day and decided to hang out for a while. Well a beer led to a quick lunch and friendly conversation with the staff. It is a great place to kill a little time waiting for your... More

At both ferry terminals in Lewes, DE and Cape May, New Jersey, you'll find this eating establishment. The outdoor atmosphere and the views of the bay, especially on the DE side, are killers. The staff is both friendly and attentive. The food service and quality, while generous, is pricey given the menu selection. For a family that is awaiting ferry... 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

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 was on top of her game, friendly... 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
