We usually go here a few of times a year and really enjoy the food. And I have always recommended the Sunday brunch to people. But this visit was not good. I got the ribs and they were hard. My husband got a burger and it was flavorless. And there were ants crawling across our table. I'm hoping this was... More

Awesome restaurant. The food is delicious, great kids menu, full bar and great staff. Great for any meal, but the Sunday brunch will make you want to go back every week.

Have been here several times for dinner and for brunch on Sundays. My favorite is the brunch. So much to choose from including smoked salmon with a variety of bagels, muffins, pastries, etc. An omelet station too! Depending on what time you get there, expect to wait! It is worth the wait!

Bethany Blues is a very popular restaurant. If you go after 6 PM you're probably in for a considerable wait, at least during the tourist season. We arrived a bit before 6 PM on a Saturday (on the advice of the person who answered our telephone call about reservations: they don't take them) and were promptly seated, but it wasn't... More

We are locals and we love going for the happy hour! Great bar food options that several will make a meal, and excellent drink prices. Service in the bar is always very attentive and friendly. We took our 5 year old grandson recently and he was thrilled when he realized his "Kid's Meal" plate was in a BB's frisbe that... More

We enjoy dining at Bethany Blues, each time we visit Lewes, Delaware over the summer. This is very good BBQ in my opinion. I enjoyed the pulled pork platter, mostly. The pulled pork was good but the two side vegetables were not to my liking. I ordered braised collard greens and was surprised that they tasted like brown sugar, very... More

Went here for dinner as a change of pace from Rehoboth and Dewey areas. This restaurant was very busy and the wait times were upwards of an hour, which in most places might signify that it could be a great restaurant.....not so. I ordered the famous ribs (combo platter). The one type was dried out and the other had more... More

We will try this place again, but I hope we get a server who will listen for a change. Our party of six did get seated within a reasonable time. We ordered drinks (mostly water) which took forever to come. While we waited, we ordered a full-size nacho appetizer. It was on the small side, but it came quickly. A... More

This is a great neighborhood restaurant where the locals eat and it is open year round. The ribs and brisket is the signature dishes, but they also have good salad, fish and burgers. It's a great solid meal--never bad and reasonably priced.

The food here was great. Tried the pulled pork, ribs, and brisket. All were good. You could tell that the meat had been recently smoked. Cole slaw side and fries were just right. Also had the house salad. Menu said it had roast corn on it. The corn was really spicy. When the server saw me picking it off he... More
