Loved the place! It was like dining in someone's home and sits on the corner of 2nd street at the head of the main part of Lewes. We had lunch there after visiting one of the area's new building home sites up the road. The waitress was able to recommend both drinks and food options and she was dead-on with... More

The Buttery is absolutely a destination when visiting Historical Lewes Delaware. You can't miss it, if you are visiting the popular Second Street in Lewes. It is a beautiful old Victorian converted into a beautiful restaurant with atmosphere and charm, galore! The staff are welcoming and helpful. The menu has something to offer for every pallet. If you are used... More

How can this place warrant such a high rating? Our experience was so disappointing. I will never go again or recommend it to anyone. I took my mother for a holiday shopping/lunch day in Lewes, DE. We were really looking forward to an upscale meal at the Buttery. After being seated on the veranda, we ordered a special of the... More

This is a beautiful old house with a wrap-around porch in the heart of Lewes. The staff is capable but the whole ambiance is one of "putting on airs". The food is very pricey, even the salads. Even for a special occasion you should have money that you don't know what to do with. Sit out on the porch, weather... More

The Buttery is a very romantic restaurant located in a beautiful old Victorian house, ideal for special occasions. We've made a point of eating there every year during our vacation in Rehoboth Beach. We've been seated on the open porch as well as in the enclosed porch, and both are very nice. The menu is first rate, and I've always... More

The Buttery possibly offers its customers one of the best decors in Lewes. We are permanent residents of this town and visit the Buttery around three or four times annually. Have a meal on the veranda and you have a visual treat....Lewes centre. Dine in the restaurant proper and one is comfortable at all tables, small or large. We always... More

This is not high noise, fast in out, this is a leisurely, well appointed, beautiful restaurant in a historic house, where you can have a civilized familial evening with friends or an intimate two person celebration, with excellent food, excellent service, and gentle atmosphere. It is unique and a gem. We have been coming to happy hours and dining for... More

It is a pretty building with dining available on the porch. From there you can people-watch. The food is fresh and delicious.
