Just really great wood-fired pizza and a great indoor and outdoor seating. Reasonably priced wine and beer and a staff that knows what its doing.

After moving to larger quarters, the 3rd eatery of Matt D is a great place for hand made pizza and an awesome wine selection. We love the casual atmosphere in the center of town and outdoor dining. A must do in Lewes.

We have been going to Half Full at its old location for years and just having a glass of wine. The old location looked out across the street to the Canal and was diagonally across from the Cafe Azafran (also, sadly no longer there). However, this summer we decided to give the pizza and salads a try. We have been... More

We went to Half Full for a 4:00 meal (what is that, lunch or dinner? I don't know) on Saturday and enjoyed it very much. The concept is interesting: good wines and pizza with quality ingredients. It makes for a casual atmosphere where the food is not casual-quality. Our one complaint (which might be unavoidable) is that the sun was... More

We walked in on Saturday evening and saw the Order Here sign. We walked over, ordered and were asked where we were sitting. We weren't sure at that point. We looked outside for seats (no one was seating) but it was packed. Someone finally noticed us wandering around and got us a bar seat. Certainly not an intuitive experience.

Pizza was good. Interesting variety of toppings. Dough was very good, crispy and appeared to be plank grilled on open flame. The wine list was impressive witj about a dozen each of red and white. There was also a nice beer selection comprising mostly craft beers. There was outdoor seating but we sat inside. Very rustic atmosphere with rough sawn... More

Casual rustic and very unique setting AND menu ! Really enjoyed. Pizza selections were one of a kind. All four of us found them to be tasty. Plan on taking time to visit and chat while waiting for your food to be prepared. Would definitely return there next time near DE beaches.
