Kindle is American bistro fare tucked into the charming town of Lewes, De. My friend and I wanted to celebrate life so we wandered into downtown and found Kindle. This is a small, cozy place, nicely decorated. In summer there is outside seating. My friend ordered a chicken meal she described as the best she had ever eaten. I enjoyed... More

We came via Ferrry to spend the day in Lewes. I was equipped with the names of several restaurants in Lewes that we could chose from for lunch but I'm so glad we went to Kindle! Small but charming, the menu was full of delicious choices and seasonal cocktails. I had the grilled cheese which was incredible! My husband had... More

During the off-season Kindle has nightly specials. My wife and I went on Burger Night (Wednesday). The very good burger was a super bargain at $7 and a Dogfish Head brew was $5. The burger was large and loaded: eight ounces of Angus beef, Gruyere cheese, smoked bacon, tomato etc. and very tasty. My wife got the Roasted Beet and... More

The place can be a bit pricey but you get what you pay for- wonderful food and good service. It is relatively small and often crowded, so reservations are advised.

This restaurant is pretty small so you'd better have reservations or plan on having a drink at the bar while you wait. It has a very nice outdoor seating area, but the indoor is too romantic and comfortable to miss out on. The banquettes are fairly large and easily accommodated our party of six. The waitresses and hostess all were... More

A night out with a group of friends at Kindles always is a great time. We love sitting outside when weather permits. Love the vibe of Lewes and how Kindles fits in. We all ordered that night's special which was a 8oz filet and a glass of wine for $25. Delicious, tender, mouthwatering filet cooked precisely at medium as requested.... More

Our last night in Lewes and our friends who are local took us here for a very happy hour. Three of us ordered the house salad $4 at happy hour and the happy hour chicken sandwich on brioche rolls with greens instead of fries for $6. The salad was substantial and fresh with a nice mix of healthy and tasty... More

The BLT salad has lost something and is now too tart. Be warned that the portion is massive. The scallops and risotto cake were terrible. The scallops smelled a we kyold and were extremely chewy. The chef forgot to pull the muscles out before preparing them. The risotto cake was more like a hockey puck. The crust was over cooked,... More

We had reservations on Friday night for a group of 15. This restaurant was humming and very busy and they accommodated us without a problem. The busboys/girls and waitresses were all very efficient, friendly and listened to any request we had. We were so impressed and the food was very good, and tasty. Many times when you go out as...

The service is very good! Waitress was very friendly! The outside tables were a little dark, would have liked it more open!
