Basically, On the Rocks is a typical lunch-type grill. And, when the weather is rainy, as it was when we visited, inside-seating-only removes almost all of the charming view. Burgers, sammies, salads, sodas and beer. The wait staff was a little harried. I suspect they...More

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.

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.
