We stopped by here for some lunch after a day on the beach. Outside it smelled heavenly. You could smell the grill at work! We took a seat at one of the patio table sets outside & were given menus by the waitress. She was back in a few minutes for our drink orders. After looking over the menu, we... More

On a summer evening, this is a wonderful place to go and have a drink and a snack. The outside bar has tables, You can watch the ferry come and go. or simply stare at the water. The snacks are good as are the drinks. On some evenings there is live music and that is always loads of fun!

This is a great place to enjoy your favorite beverage and a sandwich. The setting is hard to beat. You can watch all the activity as the ferry arrives and leaves. The food is very good. I love the french fries! Sometimes I simply order a drink and a basket of French Fries which is quite a large portion. The... More

The Delaware Dock Burger ($13).........Heavy fresh pressed burger with Crab Dip, Onion Ring, house-made Chips and a Dill Pickle.......Gigantic and Tasty! Worth every penny! Never expected such quality. If we had more time, they have a beautiful outdoor waterfront bar too!

This is definitely a hidden gem! It's not like the food is amazing, but it is decent...a bit overpriced, but who cares, everything is at the beach! What you can't beat is the location...it is right on the water, and you sit right outside on the dock. The ferry comes in and out, and you can watch all the action... More

The title of my review sums it up ! O T R is a hidden treasure. My family lives right up the road from the ferry & we frequently ride our bikes down to just relax & have a beer from their extensive beer selection & an appetizer. The bartenders are great.. Very friendly & fast!

We ate here several times when we visited Lewes - they just came out with a new menu and they have a great selection. Also, they have many premium beers on tap and we were very impressed with their drinks. I highly suggesting coming here for happy hour!
