“Great food, lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

What a treat! I've been to Lewes before, but never eaten at The Buttery. I had lunch there and loved every bit of it. The waiter was attentive and pleasant. The salad was fantastic and the crab cake was authentic Maryland! It was delicious! The atmosphere of this historic building was just lovely. If you get to Lewes, dine at The Buttery. You won't be disappointed!

“Not my Favorite”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I come here with friends a few times a year to sit outside and have a few glasses of wine with lunch or dinner. As an individual with food allergies I don't find them very accommodating. The staff can sometimes have an attitude. Just not one of my favorite places to relax and have a good time. Agave is around the corner and worth a visit.

Old Victorian House converted into a restaurant. Love sitting on the porch eating lunch! This place is a step above. Great food, really delicious and fresh. Waitstaff very attentive. Make the trip just to visit this place!!

“Nice Meal and Ambiance at the Buttery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Had dinner at the Buttery in Lewes on Jan 3, 2013. It was a Thursday, so it was a smaller crowd. Service was good, food was good, the restaurant is and old Victoria house, and the ambiance is great. Entrees were in the $30 range. Would recommend this restaurant to anybody with good conscience.
