Sit at the bar or wait for a table. Either way you will enjoy Agave. My personal favorite is a frozen pomegranate margarita and house made guacamole at the bar while waiting for a table. Dinner can be a 3 hour wait on the weekend in the summer so be ready to wait.

I've been numerous times and it never disappoints. The staff is always courteous and attentive. The food is very good and as authentic as it gets. Reasonably priced.

The Mexican food is great and the cocktail lounge on the second floor is a wonderful place to go while you're waiting for a table.

My wife and I went to Agave over President's Day weekend. We were staying across 2nd Street at Hotel Rodney, and so the wait was no big deal. We put our names in and walked around town for an hour before we got a text to come back. We love Mexican and Agave was as good as any we have... More

This establishment is a 100% overrated. The workers and owners and so pretentious. The waits are always ridiculously long. It doesn't matter when you try for a reservation or for how many it's always 3 hours. The place is super over prices. The owners seem to be self righteous pretentious people. The only positive is the food and due to... More

So popular there is usually a wait to get in; but, worth the wait (unless it's beyond reasonable - you need to decide that). The pomegranate margarita is fabulous, as well as all of the guacamole - several to choose from. I personally like the stacked enchilada, which is enough to feed two people!

We have gone there a couple of times. Margaritas are delicious and food was great. Pricy but worth it. Haven't been there since they expanded but expect a wait. Jalapeño rockets are good!

Food is always consistently good and the margaritas and sangria are delicious!! Small bar and restaurant area and they don't take reservations, so expect to wait during the peak season BUT not worth waiting longer than 30 minutes as Lewes offers other great restaurants! Try to get there at opening or in between lunch & dinner as it is worth... More

Entrees and specialties are wonderful and prepared perfectly. And the drinks win the prize every visit don't be foolish if you read this review and don't go.

It's one of the most popular places on 2nd Street and pretty small so get there early with your entire party to get your name in! Nice local bar down the street to sip a few while waiting for your "lights" to flash! Worth the wait!
