Great bar

Inexpensive yet good drinks. Live entertainment at times. Friendly bartenders. Great way to wait for the ferry.

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.

The burgers & sandwich came with chips that looked homemade & were very good. Seating is outside on the water. Food was good, prices reasonable, our only concern were... More

This restaurant is located on the back dock of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal in Lewes Delaware. The first time I ate here it was because I missed my ferry. Lucky me! The second time was because I wanted to eat here again! Both times I had the Caesar salad with the Jamaican jerk chicken with pineapple salsa. The chicken... More

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

I was dropping my friend off to catch the ferry back to Cape May. We were running late so decided to eat at the dock. It was a beautiful day. We sat outside and watched the boats and gulls. The burgers were tasty. The homemade potato chips were GREAT. The wait staff was friendly and prompt despite having a full... More
