Great little place away from the hustle and bustle. Food is fresh, could go for seconds anytime. Missed out on famous strawberry pie--but will be back again!

We've never been to Bowers Beach, but we heard about the Buccaneer Bash over Memorial Day weekend and decided to make the trip. Since we were meeting a friend, we wanted a sit-down restaurant for lunch, and JP's Wharf is really the only one in town. Fair warning: It doesn't look like much as you drive up, but it's a great space that is in really good shape. We sat on the deck, which did require citronella and bug spray (which they provided), but you're right on the river with a view of the DE Bay. Our food was great. We had fried oysters that were just brought in that morning (the boat was docked next to the restaurant), and the breading was light enough that you could enjoy the freshness of the oysters. I had a trout sandwich, which was a special caught the day before. The fish was wonderful, and even the roll was very good. My daughter and our friend had burgers, which they really enjoyed (and both had to request a box to take home half of their burgers). My wife let us sample her portobella mushroom sandwich, which was incredibly flavorful. We don't live close to this location, but we all agreed that we would make the trip back.

You cannot beat the location. Just beautiful by the river. Lots of people complain about the bugs, but seriously, you are outside. Pull it together and put some bug spray on or suck it up. Food os excellent. Highly recommend the rokcfish, its caught by the owners every day. Oysters are the same story. Burgers are great if you want something different. Strawberry pie is home made and to die for. Service is good enough. Prices are fair. Honestly, it is our go-to anytime we are local. And we take visitors there all the time who just fall in love with it.

We were here for a small wedding reception. The fish and pork were a little over done and dry. The stuffing for the pork was very good. Vegetables and rice were nothing to write home about.

The location, service, and view were all good.

A few of us stopped by on a recent Sat. afternoon. We sat on the deck with intentions of enjoying the sun ,good food, and a couple of drinks with friends. We ordered a round of drinks and a app. As we waited for our apps. out came a group of out of control kids running , screaming, crying . We thought we were at a daycare! A patio bar is not the place for kids to act like little monsters. Needless to say one couple moved and we all left. This is a nice place minus the daycare.
