Steamed shrimp were very good and well seasoned. Homemade chips was a good touch and the dip was very good. Each of us had something different and enjoyed our meals. The waitress was very friendly & attentive. Their hush puppies are excellent.

Great ribs! I went with a bunch of friends and we all enjoyed our meals. I shared the ribs with someone and we still had plenty. The hush puppies are really good too.

I can't blame this review on the staff. They were courteous and pleasant. So the rest...atmosphere not good, bright lights, not relaxing. The Maryland crab soup was probably the worst I've ever had. Eight dollars for a bowl of vegetables (with mushrooms?) with strands of...More

We arrived with a large group during busy 4th of July week. The great staff seated us surprisingly quickly and took excellent care of us throughout the meal. While the décor is a bit plain, you won't notice. You will focus all of your attention...More

Do you take reservations? We're planning a trip to Bethany this summer and there will be 8 adults, 4 children and 1 baby needing a highchair for a total of 13.

To my knowledge, they don't take reservations. You can try, nothing to lose.
First summer living in Lewes. Want to check out good seafood restaurants and saw your menu. On this site you only show 5 entrees. At the restaurant, are there more entrees than shown here?
