The patio at Aqua Sol Restaurant & Bar overlooks the Summit North Marina yacht basin and its neat rows of docked watercraft. Whether you’re enjoying Sunday brunch or catching a performance from local faves like lower case blues or the Larry Tucker Band, that great view enhances the experience. We also think the view makes the crab cakes taste better.

Because On the Rocks Waterfront Grill is part of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal building, diners get an up-close-and-personal look at Delaware Bay, the ferries as they come and go, the sand spit that is Cape Henlopen and the iconic Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse (the rust-colored one). The grill’s menu includes small bites such as lump crab ceviche, steamed shrimp and clams, and conch fritters. Bigger plates feature a crab cake sandwich, fish and chips, and a haddock sandwich. The spot also hosts a daily happy hour and offers small plate and drink specials on Sundays.
