Great Fathers Day Dinner

Really good food at a really good price along the Lewes Canal. Even the kids meals were made from scratch instead of the usual "frozen" or pre-made items like Mac N Cheese or Chicken Tenders. The Deck is great in the summer!

Hadn't been to this restaurant in years and we thought we'd try it again. Was given a nice table overlooking the canal which was a lovely view. Ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio and when it was poured by waitress it was at room temperature. I nicely commented that it should be served cold and she replied"I don't know, this... More

My son and I had a mid-afternoon lunch here. I had the Asian Chicken Salad, which had just the right amount of spicy for me. My son had the crab cakes, which he thought were really excellent. There was only one piece of the chocolate ganache for dessert, so we split it. Service was very good

This restaurant is under rated. My family of four had an amazing lunch there. I had the crab cake over salad and we all split crab fries which were huge and loaded with lump crab meat. We were tempted to come back for dinner but since we were in town for only one night we figured we would try something... More

Small, rustic bar/restaurant right on the water that is tucked away from the main street. Find it, then sit down for a cold beer and the most amazing crab cake you can imagine. We ordered the crab cake on a bed of greens, no bun. HUGE perfectly seasoned and lightly breaded mountain of a crab cake. No skinny flat patty... More

Decided to check this restaurant out because it was dog friendly. Small restaurant that had outdoor seating right on the canal. Service was good and so was the food. We had the chicken and waffle entree and grilled chicken sandwich. A bit overpriced, but expected in a tourist town. Nice view of the boats on the canal. Ended up staying... More

This restaurant is a real gem. Hidden away beside the Lewes Canal, with a lovely patio. The Crabcakes were the best I've ever had. The whole meal was perfect. The waiter gave great suggestions and the prices were very reasonable.

We called ahead and were delighted to learn we could bring our dog. The servers were very welcoming to him bringing him water and treats. We were seated toward the back of the outside deck with a good view of the canal. My wife had salmon and I had risotto with shrimp. We were very pleased with the food, service,... More
