My husband and I had a wonderful lunch on the porch of the Buttery. We shared PEI mussels. Better than how I do them, which I rarely say. I then had the asparagus and arugula salad with goat cheese purée and he had the seafood chowder. I also had a glass of white Bordeaux and he had a Bloody Mary.... More

My wife and I have tried many wonderful restaurants in U.S. and abroad including some that had Michelin stars. The Buttery was every bit as good as the best places we have tried. We had mostly seafood and everything was prepared wonderfully. The service was excellent and the timing of the dishes arrival was very good. The entire meal from... More

After being caught in a sudden mid-afternoon rainstorm, we rushed onto the porch of The Buttery. The staff welcomed us generously with a table on the porch, per our request, and seated us with towels for drying ourselves off. Although we only had coffee and dessert, the service was excellent, the servers were conversational, and the Tiramisu was simply incredible!... More

The Buttery is always on our list when in Lewes. Quality is never an issue. Dined here many times and will continue to enjoy the hospitality. They also have some great drinks at the bar

We went to The Buttery on our last night in Lewes, as a special treat. And it really was a treat, from the appetizers to the dessert. Our server was excellent, well-informed, efficient and very friendly. The asparagus and arugula salad with goat cheese mousse is a must-have, just outstanding! We had the scallops, lamb and crab cakes for dinner... More

The Buttery offers a seasonal limited menu. The experience and professional service is exquisite. Food is prepared to spec, consistent and tasty. It is jacket and tie kind of place, in a sea of casual dining locations, in beach town.

My friends from Maryland , Delaware and Cape May, NJ gather at the Buttery every year around Christmas time. We always receive great service and there is something for the veg/vegan and for the omnivores in the group.
