While you have to wait at least an hour, it's totally worth the wait. It's a little loud, but service is timely, and good-natured. Fish tacos are my favorite but there are so many great dishes. Our children love the meat burritos. Enchiladas are so yummy. Big bonus: they have a gluten-free menu.

I ate here on a Friday night and it was an amazing start to my trip. I arrived around 5 to put my name in and the estimated hour wait was spot on. I was seated at 6 and at that point wait times were 3 hours. However, the food and beverages were amazing. You are seated with a pitcher... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, the wait for this restaurant is ridiculous, but the food is very good. Two ways to skip the wait but still enjoy the cuisine: we had a big brunch, no lunch, and then an early dinner at 4pm. Walked in and were seated right away. Food was very good -- just different enough from the... More

My wife and I had a super lunch here in 2012. My wife could not wait to return for some of the roasted corn soup. Plan for a long wait. We were seated at a nice table for two and ordered the guacamole with shrimp for app. Don't waste your money for the shrimp because you will be lucky to... More

Great food and great tequila. There's always a crowd, it's a little cozy, but my wife & I love the atmosphere. You can't go wrong with the nachos.

Agave is one of the best restaurant In Lewis, De. Make a reservation because the wait is on average 4 hours. Plan a head before you eat here

A tip on working with the no reservation policy.... As a general rule we have been able to call and place our name on the list for tables for the same day. They will call to let you know when to come in. Not sure if it works every time but worth a try.

You'll wait in line, but you'll want to do so. The food is excellent, pretty big portions (shareable) and nice waitstaff. Their guacamole is delicious as is the steak and blue cheese quesadilla !

Great food! Wish they would take reservations or offer local residents reservations. Upstairs lounge is nice, but wish they would offer more selections for meals and drinks like mojitos. We've been wanting to take our out of town guests for 3 years, but can't due to the 3 hour wait!!

Visited with my wife again. This is still our favorite food in Lewes. The guacamole is awesome - it can fill you up if you are not careful. The place was busy and does not accept reservations so we put our name in, waited 25 minutes on a weekday before being seated. This can easily be 60-90 minutes or more... More
