Half Full serves one main thing--pizza. But not your ordinary pizza. It's rectangular, and comes with either a red sauce or white garlic sauce. There are loads of toppings from meats to veggies, and you can design your own or order one of their suggested pizzas. The crust is thin and crispy and everything is incredibly delicious! We love the... More

Great food and fabulous staff. We are locals and make sure we get there often. Btw...You have the wrong picture of the building...the moved onto Second Street and expanded their seating, inside and out. Looks the same but doubled the size:)

Many pizza places kinda look the same, a store front and few tables. Half Full's building looks like something you would see in a sea side town, and Lewes is a just that. It has some seating outside, the inside is small but with the high top rough sawn tables it can handle more people than we initially thought. The... More

This little restaurant has awesome wood fired pizza and a decent selection of wine and beer. The ambience is very casual and you may find yourself sharing a long table with other guests, but believe me, the pizza is so good you won't care. Thin, crispy crust, lovely sauce, gourmet options - there is something for everyone. The pizzas are... More

This was a nice find and a fresh and welcome alternative to the only other pizza place on 2nd Street. The restaurant is very small and can get really crowded on a Saturday night, but the turnover is quite fast. The hostess was great in finding us a table quickly that could even accommodate our child (our table was an... More

Just really great wood-fired pizza and a great indoor and outdoor seating. Reasonably priced wine and beer and a staff that knows what its doing.

After moving to larger quarters, the 3rd eatery of Matt D is a great place for hand made pizza and an awesome wine selection. We love the casual atmosphere in the center of town and outdoor dining. A must do in Lewes.

We have been going to Half Full at its old location for years and just having a glass of wine. The old location looked out across the street to the Canal and was diagonally across from the Cafe Azafran (also, sadly no longer there). However, this summer we decided to give the pizza and salads a try. We have been... More

We went to Half Full for a 4:00 meal (what is that, lunch or dinner? I don't know) on Saturday and enjoyed it very much. The concept is interesting: good wines and pizza with quality ingredients. It makes for a casual atmosphere where the food is not casual-quality. Our one complaint (which might be unavoidable) is that the sun was... More
