Great atmosphere in a great location... waterfront!! Friendly staff! We enjoyed our dinner and drink while watching football! Later the DJ started and played good music suitable for dancing! The night we visited the crowd was also friendly! Lively atmosphere in one section! Quiet dining in another... something for everyone!

Way too pricey for the quality of food. We were told by the server that she was glad that we were there because she had bills to pay. Soup was cold. Server said she had told kitchen that the soup wasn't hot enough for a previous customer. Soup was reheated but still not hot. Bar tender talked about her personal... More

Irish Eyes is located on the harbor within an easy walk to downtown Lewes, with ample parking and delicious food. The menu is long and varied, with seafood and Americanand Irish cuisine. The shepherds pie is excellent and the fish and chips is huge! Full bar with TVs, dining room, and year-round outdoor dining, plus an upstairs that they rent... More

After being in Rehoboth/Lewes area for several months we finally were able to get to Irish Eyes and we were not disappointed. We both had the shepherd's pie. We usually order different things so we can do fair reviews but this time we wanted to order the same. We both thought it was good but I thought there was an... More

We always say we will try another restaurant in the area and always come back to this pub. It is too good to pass up. Each of us had a cheeseburger with fries, and a pint of beer. The service was great: polite, helpful, and snappy. All tables have plenty of elbow room and there is outdoor seating overlooking the... More

the atmosphere is amazing; the staff friendly; the cost great; the food.....good. I can't say the food was all that GREAT because I ordered the shepherd's pie and it was drier than it should have been and very bland. I've had much better elsewhere but the beer was good.

My husband and I are here tonight on a weekend getaway. This was our first time in Lewes and were very excited to try this place based on the reviews and the menu. We were sat promptly and received our appetizer in good timing as well. We ordered- bangers & mash and a Rueben (Two meals you would think would... More

The table on the deck with a view over the canal is great! ...We usually enjoy a delicious meal but maybe there was a different chef on duty that day...onion soup was way too salty with "hundreds" of onions and fish and chips were very oily tasting!

Since our first visit a few months ago, during which we were not overly impressed, we have returned twice with friends during September. On both occasions our friends were pleased with our visits, and complimented the food. I'm not yet ready to call Irish Eyes "very good", but I'll certainly give them a strong "good". I'm sure that we will... More

I have been to Irish Eyes in Lewes, over 10 times in the past three years, but this visit was very disappointing. They took the lobster salad and lobster rolls (one of their best two dishes) off of the menu. We arrived at 4:00 p.m. (not lunch time nor dinner time) and even though there were many empty tables, all... More
