Not much food for pricey place. Wouldn't go back and found lots of other places in Lewes to enjoy. Did enjoy the porch area to eat and people watch but wasn't satisfied with selection and prices.

Excellent service, setting, and cuisine. This was our second and definitely not our last visit to The Buttery. Everything from the salad to dessert was scrumptious! We'll be back!

We've eaten at the Buttery probably once a year for many years and it continues to be a Lewes favorite. We've always had a great meal with the personable staff that treats you more like an old friend than just a customer. I sometimes think they are victimized on review sites by their own success - peoples expectations are so... More

The Buttery was worth a return visit. I was there for brunch in November and returned to Lewes in February with my husband for an overnight and we enjoyed another good brunch. Fabulous Eggs Benedict, a yummy Crab Cake with plump chunks of Crab and Swordfish done to perfection (and that is difficult). A bit pricey yet OK.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the Buttery, in Lewes,DE. We ordered the Duck L'Orange, and Sea Scallop entrees, with seafood chowder and an incredible goose pate for appetizers. The serving portions for all were large enough for two! Although my scallops were lukewarm upon serving, the chef replaced it with an entire new entree, without... More

A week ago today we finished up our visit to Lewes with a dinner at The Buttery. I had the crab cakes which were very good and my boyfriend had the filet which he really liked. Our waitress Shannon was great, very on top of everything. The restaurant was beautiful!!! We sat in the front room which was right across... More
