We stopped here mostly out of conscience, but we're pleasantly surprised. We were in Lewes to go on a dolphin tour that left from fisherman's wharf. We ate lunch here prior to our departure. It was a lovely lunch... We ate outside on the deck. Even though it was hot, there were shade umbrellas. Service was good and so was... More

Had a wonderful experience with our family of seven. Wait staff was friendly and courteous. All of our needs were met expeditiously. Our food showed up very quickly - which is especially important when you have toddlers. The Steamer was delicious - reminded me of the wonderful seafood I had as a kid growing up next to the gulf. The... More

So many great things to say about this little slice of heaven. The staff is friendly and checks on you very often. Prices very good for what you get. Loved every little thing I had here. It's right on the bay and you have a great view indoors and out.

You are sitting on the dock as private ships dock and depart 50 feet away. Outside seats have umbrellas, and some are under cover. You can also choose to eat inside in a dining area that has large windows. This area is connected to the bar area which, depending on the weather, will have its floor to ceiling glass doors... More

The Wharf has been there as long as I have been going to Lewes. Food tends to ebb and flow. I don't know if that is due to different owners or chefs but it isn't consistently Good or Bad. Its always OK, most of the time. What sets this place apart from other water view establishments, is its outdoor bar.... More

This restaurant has changed hands so many times over the years and it never gets any better. Saturday, I ordered the blackened Mahi with bacon, avocado, lettuce, and tomato. I upgraded to the parmesan fries. I should know better than order anything blackened outside the south. It requires more technique than simply dredging in spices and sauteing. The sandwich and...
