We love the consistency of this restaurant. We have been there many times and have never been disappointed. Our dinner last week did not disappoint. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the soft shell crabs--and my grouper (Baltimore style) was excellent. Fish On has become one of our "go to" restaurants in Lewes. We will return--soon!!!

We live in Lewes year round and have done so for many decades now ;-> We have several restaurants we frequent in Lewes, but are always looking for consistency, which we often find lacking in our favorite haunts... And so we tried Fish'On again over the Memorial Day holiday. We had the Captains Platter, which was a nice assortment of... More

Personally, I like this place for the great food and the easy parking. Anyone in Rehoboth Beach in the summer will value the abundant free parking. Happy hour offerings include the usual $1 oysters and steamed shrimp. But the other offerings include steamed clams, mussels and fish tacos. The dinner menu is also great with shrimp and grits, seared scallops... More

My wife and I decided that we would venture out on NYE. Fish On took reservations and that eliminated some hassle. It has been a go to place for us. We started out with the soup special and the tuna appetizer ... both were nice and went well with the bottle of wine we ordered. The bread as always was... More

First time at this restaurant & was attending a birthday party. Food was delicious & proportions were huge. Service was awesome. Had the streamed shrimp for appetizer & crab cakes for entrée. Everyone at the party enjoyed their food & no one had any complaints. Everyone left stuffed. Great experience at this restaurant. Would definitely visit there again.

The menu, food preparation and atmosphere is nothing special and to be honest, I was disappointed as were my guests. The bright spot was our waitress and her great personality. She managed to keep our evening from being a total failure. I was with three guests and we found the restaurant lacking.

have been visiting this restaurant every year on vacation. Was disappointed this time. Calamari was below what we had in the past. Fried Lobster tasted like paper. Staff was not attentive. Too bad it use to be a place we look forward to going to.

We stopped in the restaurant around 5PM after a round of golf and it was nearly empty. So we thought the service would be fast - NOT! Not only that, but they served 3 thinly sliced pieces of white bread while we had drinks and waited for appetizers. The appetizer we tried was steamed clams in tomato, jaelopena sauce and... More
