Burgers are just average. Bartenders not allowed to put Fox News on while waiting for the Ferry! Come on!!! are we kidding. Think I'll go somewhere else for my average burger.

Great Location, decent menu, good beer selection (from 16 Mile brewery). The one down side is the fact that their hours are tied to the ferry schedule (with the last arrival/departure), meaning they close quite a bit earlier than most restaurants.

Located at the Cape May/Lewes Ferry Terminal - you get to see the ferry arrivals/departures sitting right by the water. Have been here on 3 different occasions and thoroughly enjoyed each time. A varied menu - good service.

This is a great place to eat in the summer time, particularly on the Lewes side. They have set up a small outdoor restaurant area. Beautiful view of the bay.

We enjoy sitting on the dock with a drink or lite meal when we are waiting for our ferry to arrive. Great view and sunsets if you time it right.

We met family members at the Ferry and decided to have dinner at OTR. The food was good, the staff was great and the views were awesome! The prices are also very reasonable. Even if the outside bar and grill aren't open, you can still order from the inside bar and sit outside if the weather is nice. It's right... More

The Crab Cake special is outstanding coupled with good cold draft beer make for a satisfying meal before the ferry trip.

Service was good. My husband had bbq wings and I had a burger. Both were good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We enjoyed watching the ferries pulling in and out.

I am a local who's heard how great the burgers are here. Well I was quite disappointed to pay $12 for the Caprese burger- I ordered it pink but received the DRIEST burger that I've ever eaten. I honestly think it had some filler too. Will never go back to eat- ever. Too many other good burger places in the... More
