We had a very disappointing dinner at The Buttery last evening. The place had been recommended by the innkeeper. The food was not awful, but every dish was terribly overcooked and dried out. No one in our party of four was pleased. If you love, and are used to excellent cuisine, my advice is to try another place. Most telling... More

We had reservations a party of 10. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and we were seated promptly. Our waiter Eric was terrific. The atmosphere was great. Service was outstanding. Some of the best service we have ever had. The food was great. Although the entrees were pricey we were pleasantly suprised by the portion size. Well worth... More

A little more formal eating establishment on the Main Street of Lewes, but you don't have to be dressed up. You can sit inside or out in this old building. The food was very good.

We were a party of 7 celebrating a good friend's birthday. The food was excellent and the service was terrific too. We had a really good time and hopefully didn't disrupt our fellow diners too much.

My girlfriend had been to The Buttery before, and raved about it - so on our beach weekend getaway, I made sure to make reservations for our first night at the beach. I was shocked when then were able to reserve us a table on a very busy Friday night, and even more shocked when, running late, I called and... More

Enjoyed with college friends an wonderful dining experience at our favorite Lewes, Delaware restaurant- The Buttery. Superior service combined with superb entrees presented a night to remember with ole college classmates. Ambience of the old Lewes residence turned restaurant adds the extra touch to a dining evening of true rewarding experience! Ted & Patti Haas

A few years back I despised when my family wanted to go here. Now I love it. The bar is full of older (45+) during happy hour. They have some great bartenders though. Happy hour specials are good and the bar/bistro has an extra menu with a GREAT portabella mushroom burger. It is by far the best vegetarian burger I... More
