“Bartenders, Listen Up”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Smile and greet people as they sit down at the bar. Yes, that simple. Your drinks are fine but the lack of friendliness drives many of us to drink elsewhere. Food? Not great. Just mediocre as is your sister place, Striper Bites. Feels like no one really cares and everyone's going through the motions. Boring menus, glad you're successful but really wish you didn't own so many places in town. it's the "syndication" of Lewes. Sysco is the happiest. But a happy barkeep would do so much....think about it.

“Great food!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Everyone we went with loved their meals! The roasted chicken, hanger steak, scallops were excellent and the soup, salad and bread was great. Smaller place on the inside but great selection of drinks!

“Monday night meal”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Kindle restaurant is in a nice setting on a short side street in downtown Lewes. The decor was fairly pleasant with dark wood and low lighting. Our server was friendly and prompt. She knew the menu well and made recommendations. I had the roast chicken, and my husband chose the breaded fluke. I prefer the skin on my chicken to be crispier, as opposed to the buttery feel that this had, but it was seasoned well and moist. The fluke was mild flavored, not much seasoning but a crispy breaded coating. The menu is modern American style, largely centered around a large meat portion. I got half a chicken so I ended up with leftovers. The desserts were excellent, especially the peach crisp.

“Great date nite spot.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Food was really good. The service was excellent. The beer selection could have been a little better. Not enough of the local brewery's on the menu. Just dogfish.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Walked in, 20 min wait, they took our cell no so we could walk around Lewes. We had good food and service. Slightly pricey but worth it. Wine could have been chilled more.
