We decided to try On the Rocks at the Cape May terminal of the ferry one evening on a whim. Got there and seated just in time to watch a ferry arrive, unload, reload and leave for the last trip to Lewes for the day. Lovely outdoor venue with a center bar for seating as well as tables with umbrellas.... More

We had 30 minutes to eat and get back in the car to board the ferry. The waitress with the wicked sense of humour took good care of us. The burgers and fries were really top notch. We noticed that there were lots of people eating there who were not going aboard the ferry. They also have a mini golf... More

I stopped here on my way out of the area for dinner with my family. FYI: YOU DON'T NEED A FERRY TICKET TO GO THE RESTAURANT!! The outdoor seating is very nice, right on the water, and a playground is right there for the kiddies to play! Prices were average and the food was good. I don't recommend getting a... More

The Cape May/Lewes ferry terminal in Lewes, DE has just installed some floating docks that now allow access by boat. I took advantage of this while out on the bay yesterday. I was boating with a friend and we decided to head in to check out the docks. We tied off, went to the restaurant which is in full view... More

My daughters and I missed our Ferry back to Delaware, (shame on us) so we had some time to kill. We ate here and enjoyed the food. Good quality, and good service.

Eaten here many times and the food is always great. Everything is cooked on a bbq grill. The burgers are cooked as requested, the mahi is perfect. They have ceviche and conch fritters also. Must try the "painkiller" drink. Bill and Vicky are always on top of their game and never let you go dry for more than a few... More

This location is terrific if you want a casual lunch and a great view. It's located in Lewes right at the point of departure for the Cape May-Lewes ferry, so you can eat and watch the boats come and go. There are plenty of tables and umbrellas so that it is relatively easy to get seating, and the service is... More
