This is much better than any fast food. The BBQ is average as are the hamburgers. The drinks are a bit over-priced, espicially the very ordinary wine.

Can't speak on the Lewes location, but the Bethany Beach location offers great burgers and so much more in the meat and salad selections. It will be a bit noisey during the vacation season. Chances are you will take home some cornbread!

It's nice to know this popular and long-running eatery provides consistently good BBQ meals (whereas some Ocean City competitors have not!) You can't go...More

For our first trip to Bethany Beach, we chose this restaurant for their barbecued meats. We visited on a Saturday evening for dinner. All four of our meals and the service were excellent. The chicken and the brisket were exceptional.

Many restaurants were closed prior to the season beginning but the Bethany Blues is open all year. This was our first visit and found the dinner crowd to be mostly locals. We were seated at a high top table and the server appeared quickly. The...More

They do not take reservations, not even for large groups. You can go to the host stand to check in and and they'll text you when your table is ready. You can walk around town while you wait for your table and still have... More
