Eggs Benedict with over cooked eggs, mediocre sides and a door that sticks do bad I thought the place was closed. The food tasted fair at best.

They have my favorite local beer, 16 mile Blues Golden on tap! I also had the hot wings which were nice, not too hot either. And finally the Tuna Bites--only 4 pieces but very thick and quite tasty and beautifully cooked--the bartender suggested I get them medium well which I did and they were perfect for me. Friendly bartender Rob... More

This is a dive bar with good food and reasonable prices. Salad was surprisingly good, and soup was also good. Staff tried their best. We also walked here after Woody's had too long of a wait.

While looking for something to eat in Dewey Beach, we chose Hammerheads. The last time we were in this building, 20 years ago, it was a Sea Shell Shop!! Now it's popular sandwich/beer spot with numerous TV's. Pleasant staff, good food, many beverage options & centrally located. They have a couple parking spots on the street. We found one as... More

We love this cafe. The hog wings and hamburgers are our favorites. It's very casual. Outdoor seating is great. Service is good. Staff is friendly. Not fond of their brand of chips but other than that, it's really enjoyable. Would prefer french fries rather than tater tots. We were there in July and September. Will go again next summer.

Never had a bad experience here. Solid cheesesteak and the service does everything to complement the food. Highly recommended.

Spent a little over 2 hours trying to have breakfast there Monday morning. Sign said "seat yourself" which we did and service went downhill from there. Terrible experience and when food finally came it was the wrong stuff and cold. A customer got up and tried to help but wasn't much help. Goofy experience.

We ate breakfast on a Tuesday morning. We walked in and it said to seat yourself so we did. The waitress finally came over and said, "I didn't see you come in," she seemed a little hung over and still had her wrist band on from the Bottle and Cork. That should have been the first sign. She brought us... More
