I am surprised that this restaurant is not rated better on TripAdvisor. We were staying in Lewes for my wife's birthday and Monday's many of the restaurants are closed. We checked out what was open and were we had not eaten and gave Jerry's a try. We were not disappointed. We started with the Baked Brie, which was a meal... More

Really yummy and all-crab CRAB cakes. Fish and potato wedges (chips) were very good too. Haddock properly cooked and flakey. Good detail to proper seasoning about all. The home made cole slaw was creamy, light, and fresh.

Stopped in this restaurant for a seafood dinner and enjoyed it. I started with fresh oysters on the half shell that were perfect. Cup of Maryland crab with lump that was perfect and finished off with bacon wrapped scallops. Everything was delicious and the 80's music playing in the background made it nostalgic. See you soon!

A day of shopping in Lewes and decided to stop in. Our server, Carolyn, was helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed the French onion soup, prime rib sandwich, fish and chips, and the mixed beet bruschetta. All were delicious and substantial portions. The beet bruschetta presentation made it almost too pretty to eat! Will definitely return.

Visited for lunch and enjoyed a great meal. Grilled shrimp sandwich w/guacamole was perfect, shrimp salad was great and the veggie slaw outstanding. Friendly, quick and attentive service with reasonable prices - don't miss this place!

Late lunch with friends. Signature crab soup served warm, not piping hot. Had to be returned for reheating. French onion soup was chock full of onions with nice overlay of gruyere cheese. Home-made chicken salad sandwich lacked any distinguishing taste. Not unique in any way and roll was dry. Server was pleasant and professional. There are better lunch choices in... More

They have lots of raw bar items, but their claim to fame is the "crab bomb" which is a large, tasty crab cake. It comes in regular and fireball--with mustard etc. inside and outside making it a bit hot. You can get the full size = 10 oz. of either one; or the smaller size = 6 oz, or the... More

Located right on the main street in Lewes. Stopped in late evening for drinks and appetizers. Wonderfully surprised with a live Jazz band playing. Food was great...particularly the oysters. Cream of crab soup was filled with lumps of crab meat. Menu had a wonderful selection of food. Will definitely go back to try some of their dinners.

After spending the day going from beach to beach, husband and I stopped at Jerry's Seafood in Lewes, close to our hotel. Best choice we could've made. Crab dip with crusty bread was outstanding! Great Chunks of crabmeat topped it off. I had cream of crab soup, which was just a tad bland so I squeezed a little lemon and... More

Lewes is a beach town for tourists. In the winter it returns to the locals. And locals know where to find good food. Jerry's is one of those places. Food is good, prices are very reasonable and service is terrific. It is located in the heart of Lewes and is right around the corner from free public parking. Overall, it... More
