Fish On…At the Villages of Five Points in Lewes, Delaware


No, I did not know that I was going to end up at Fish On last night.  I am glad I did, though.

As I looked to the West the sunset was spectacular.  It was red and huge and beautiful through the trees.  I hope you got a chance to see it, just as the waxing crescent moon, showed this phase on the Delmarva sky.

Fish On was quiet on Monday night.  Don’t get me wrong, they had customers but it was Monday and usually it is a little more subdued.  Good night to go out to dinner during the summer.

This restaurant is located on 17300 North Village Main Blvd., Lewes, DE 19958.  It is on the corner of North Village Main Blvd. and E. Batten St., in the center of the Villages.  Tel. is 302-645-9790 and the website is  You should check their site because they have different specials and upcoming events.

It is very easy to get to.  If you are on Rt. 1 or Coastal Highway, take Rt.9 East, which is also Savannah Rd. and go to the next Light and turn left by the Food Lion and go straight to the back of the Villages and you will see the restaurant on your right.

A very contemporary restaurant, indeed it is, with high ceilings and wide open spaces.  They are open 7 days a week at 5:00 p.m.  The restaurant has a full bar with the ever present televisions.

I had not been to Fish On in some time; no particular reason, but the menu looked great.  I had the most interesting and refreshing salad, which was their special, and I am glad that, Chris, our waiter suggested it.  The salad was a watermelon salad with baby arugula, goat cheese, fresh squeezed lime juice and sea salt and pepper. It was presented as 2 big wedges of the watermelon with the arugula on top and it was big enough for 2 people, but I did eat it all myself.  I cannot tell you enough how good it was and perfect on a hot summer night.  The combination was a hit.  For my dinner I also chose one of their specials; flash fried soft shell crabs on top of arugula with a citrus vinaigrette.  Again, it was light, simple, and perfect.

My husband had the pan seared scallops with sweet corn, soy beans, cherry tomato succotash.  Very tasty too and we had mentioned to Chris that he had a gluten allergy and they were very careful on how his dinner was cooked.

The following are a few dishes on the menu that were interesting:

For starters – Pan roasted mussels with spicy tomato and chorizo, and mini white fish tacos, as well as fried baby lobster tails, with a chipotle dipping sauce.

Salads – Caesar with white anchovies, and they also had grilled asparagus.

Mains – Fennel seed crusted tuna, a creamy Cajun penne pasta and a Lewes seafood stew.

A la carte you could order roasted garlic spinach, lobster mash potatoes and truffle fried brussel sprouts.

Fish On had quite a few desserts too like a caramel toffee cheesecake, apple pie, warm bread pudding with maple banana sauce and a Maine root beer float.

A special menu for kids 12 and under was available, as well.

After dinner indulgences included Irish Coffee, a Mint Martini, Port, Reverse Port and Tawny Port.

I did not know what the differences of the 3 ports were so I checked it out and found the following information:

“Ports are made of blends of several grape varieties, vineyard lots and vintages.”  It is a fortified wine from the northern provinces of Portugal.  It is usually sweet but can also be dry and semi-dry.  It is an after dinner drink, most of the time.

A Port that is too dry is a Reverse.

Tawny Ports are wines that are made from red grapes.  They have been aged in barrels made out of wood and they have been exposed to oxidation and evaporation.  Because of this, they slowly turn to a golden brown color.  And, because they have exposure to wood, it gives a “nutty” flavor to the wine.  They are sweet or medium dry.  If no age has been given, then it has spent at least 7 years in barrels.

So, if you live in the Lewes, Rehoboth and Dewey Beach areas or are visiting my beaches, try Fish On.  Let me know how you like it.  I would like to hear what you have to say on the reviews because this is my personal opinion and we all have different tastes.

Oh, I almost forgot to let you know that Fish On has a patio where you can have dinner, weather permitting, and you are most welcomed to bring your pooch for a night out.
