“Nicely Redone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

This is a great place to enjoy your favorite beverage and a sandwich. The setting is hard to beat. You can watch all the activity as the ferry arrives and leaves.
The food is very good. I love the french fries! Sometimes I simply order a drink and a basket of French Fries which is quite a large portion. The sandwiches are all delicious. The drinks are generous although pricey. Happy Hour is the time to visit for great prices on drinks. They have a good selection of beer including on tap. A nice selection of wines and mixed drinks are available as well. They make the best Bloody Marys I have ever had. There is a lot of seating at the bar and dockside tables. There is inside seating for those who prefer that.
The staff is friendly and provide fast service. There is lots of parking. Nightly entertainment is a possibility in the near future.
When in the area, give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

“They figured it out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We've been coming to "On the Rocks" for years because of the view and the putt putt golf and playground. But now they have figured out the food and beverage. All around great place for a beer and burger on the water! The crab dip on the burger is off the chain!! Well done. It will now become a locals "new" favorite :-)

“Great burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

The Delaware Dock Burger ($13).........Heavy fresh pressed burger with Crab Dip, Onion Ring, house-made Chips and a Dill Pickle.......Gigantic and Tasty! Worth every penny! Never expected such quality. If we had more time, they have a beautiful outdoor waterfront bar too!

“Decent food...great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is definitely a hidden gem! It's not like the food is amazing, but it is decent...a bit overpriced, but who cares, everything is at the beach! What you can't beat is the location...it is right on the water, and you sit right outside on the dock. The ferry comes in and out, and you can watch all the action as you eat. The menu is decent, mostly basic foods like burgers, hot dogs, crab cakes, etc. Good food, not great, but good. Plus they have a bar there as well. Also, if you are there with the kids, they have a FREE 18 hole mini golf course. This is a cool little place...clean, good service.

“Great service,beer selection & view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

The title of my review sums it up !
O T R is a hidden treasure. My family lives right up the road from the ferry & we frequently ride our bikes down to just relax & have a beer from their extensive beer selection & an appetizer. The bartenders are great.. Very friendly & fast!
