Others have raved about this restaurant to me but I wasn't impressed. Our service wasn't very good. The grilled chicken was fair. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing and caught them on an off day.

Wonderful selection of brunch options and they go above and beyond in number of different food stations. Breakfast items, seafood section, large array of BBQ, Bloody Mary bar, carving station and desserts. The top Brunch in Lewes!

We went on Sunday morning for the fabulous brunch! So much variety you can't decide what to eat. Everything had great flavor and super options to choose from. The only complaint I had was the mimosas were literally 1/2 ice and 1/2 liquid. This explains why they were only $1. Everything else was outstanding.

I was on the eastern shore for business so I had to make a trip to Bethany Blues to get some pulled pork to take home. The service was great and I was in and out in less than 5 minutes. Worth the drive from anywhere!

Bring your appetite to this fantastic Sunday Brunch. I met some friends at Bethany Blues. You can't imagine the food. Omelette, waffles, made to order eggs, fruit, Surf Bagels, and all the delicious BBQ you can eat. Servers are friendly and attentive. You can't rush through this one.
