Food we got was good, although the menu isn’t terribly large and is somewhat all over the place in its offerings. The drink menu was extremely rum/sugar heavy. The ambience was somewhat like a restaurant you’d expect to be in Disney World — heavily themed with occasional light/sound effects throughout the restaurant. Probably a great experience for kids.

We arrived with a reservation to dine and play bingo but they didn't have a seat ready. We were seated at the kitchen door and couldn't see the screen to play bingo. Our server, Tina, was an absolute delight and the food was very good.

Lewes
About the restaurant
Located in the historic district, Lewes Oyster House honors the rich heritage of ubiquitous and democratic oyster consumption in 18th and 19th century Middle Atlantic taverns and oyster houses. We serve inspired tavern fare, expertly prepared with fresh, regionally-sourced ingredients along with crisp lagers, interesting wines, and artisanal cocktails. All that, and a whole lot of love.

Please join us for lunch Tuesdays through Saturdays in the Tap Room, Oyster Bar or Main Bar. We do not accept reservations for lunch.

Walk-ins for dinner are always welcome first-come first-served at the Oyster and Main bar areas, all evening long beginning at 5 p.m.

We love this restaurant, it is one of the most creative around. If you are going to pay $35-$40 an entree it is nice to know they do something different than what we do at home:) Wine prices are reasonable, bartenders are good mixologists and you can hear, Tamara is a great server!!

About the restaurant
**Terrace Now Open. Seating available for walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis.**
True Chesapeake is a fine dining restaurant born of an oyster farm. Executive Chef Zack Mills creates a seasonal menu that showcases oysters from our far St. Jerome’s Creek, Southern Maryland — raw, roasted, and in signature dishes like Classic Rockefeller and Semolina Fried Oysters. But, the oysters are just the beginning. Our award winning menu celebrates the bounty of the Chesapeake region by using locally sourced seafood, meat, and produce to create exquisite dishes that evolve with the seasons. Chef Mills has been featured extensively for his use of invasive seafood species, a very delicious way to help the Chesapeake Bay. Don't forget to order the Blue Crab and Bone Marrow dip or handmade pasta. We have an expertly curated wine list, beer selection, and cocktails - both classic and creative. Ample bar, high-top, and terrace seating available for walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis.
