This canal front find was a wonderful discovery for my husband and I ,set along the canal with nice views of boats coming and going! Gentle breezes were so refreshing as we sat on the deck over looking the canal in our casual wear and flippies enjoying the most flavorful bites a person could ask for! I had the most... More

On the canal. Food is good. The waiter was great. Typical fish restaurant fare. Nice place to spend a few hours drinking and eating. I'd go back knowing it's not gourmet, but good, plentiful food. Mussels were really good.

We were tired and hungry and stopped here because it had a parking lot which is tough to find in Lewes. The atmosphere and decor was uninspiring so we were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. I had cod and chips and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. My husband had mussels and loved them. Our waiter was... More

Had the tuna bites and they were incredibly delicious. Sitting on the deck is a great atmosphere. Definitely worth stopping by for at least an app and a drink!

We were looking for a nice place to eat after getting off the Cape May - Lewes Ferry. I had reviewed several places on-line hubby chose The Wharf. We ate inside but still had a pretty nice view of the canal. Live music coming from the bar added to the atmosphere. I was torn between the scallops and the crab... More

Went for dinner there. It was good enough that I might go back. Then again, maybe not. Service was fair. Nice views along the canal. Best part of the meal was the appetizers. The crab bruschetta was excellent. I had the clams on the half shell. Nice and cold. My wife had the salmon which was good. Two of us... More

Great seafood, portion sizes are good, the staff is friendly. They have a live band and seating on a deck along the water. I'd highly recommend the fisherman's platter, steamer pot, and mussels!

They had a band which added a special touch to our dining experience. We had crab cake sandwich and shrimp basket. We also took some wings back to the hotel to watch the boxing match in the room. Our server was Paul and he was very kind and professional.

After being turned away at several Rehoboth Beach restaurants, since we had our pup with us, we headed to Lewes thanks to the Bring Fido app and we were so glad we did.
