“Great crab cake sandwitch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We stopped in for a quick bite on our way back up from Rehoboth Beach DE. The service was excellent and the for was great. At the end of town but worth the walk after you've seen the shops.

“Modern but classic seafood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We went to Striper Bites last week and enjoyed both the atmosphere and the food.

The decor has a New England feel, with clapboard outside and a warm but modern interior. Each section is small but that keeps it from having the cavernous feeling of a typical restaurant. It almost feels like a beach house that's been converted, with a bar area, an indoor (small) dining room, a porch and an outside seating area.

Both of our meals were very good though a little boiler plate. I had the seafood fra diavolo and my wife had a shrimp and rice dish. We also had a very good nacho plate which is unusual for a seafood restaurant but worked with the casual atmosphere.

There was a little bit of a wait, but that's expected. It's the week following July 4th so we expected that. The waitress we had was very good, friendly and helpful. It's a borderline 4-5 star place, only 4 stars because there are many good restaurants in Lewes.

“Good LEWES food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

The atmosphere and food was so good. Definitely try the Nor'easter or the Blackened Tuna Pasta. While visiting the bar make sure you sample the Pinnacle Whipped Crush as well!

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Our first visit ever to Lewes, DE. Charming little village. We couldn't get in to Striper Bites on Friday night - long wait - so we tried again on Saturday night. Enjoyed the tuna-on-wonton appetizer - sooo yummy! The Amaretto Chicken was great; my husband really enjoyed the seafood pasta dish. The atmosphere there is so up-beat and friendly. The mix of all age groups makes it a welcoming place for families, couples, and friends. We enjoyed it so much, we ate there again on Sunday evening!

“Food was tasty, but wait was very long”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Our recent meal was good, but the service was incredibly slow: 1) 25 minutes for drinks, 2) at 1 hour we received our starter; and 3) our main course arrived approximately 30 minutes after that. Many tables were empty and yet we were told that the kitchen was backed up. Be prepared to wait.....
