We dine at Osprey Point often because of the great combination of service, ambiance and, of course, the food. The regular menu is well rounded and there's something for pretty much everybody. Weekly specials add variety and use locally available seasonal ingredients. We will be back!

Fabulous dining experience. The owner and executive chef came out to meet each patron. Service was attentive and superb. Food was exceptional. Wine list was exhaustive and not overly priced. The venue is historic and cozy. Absolutely a first rate venue.

As always the staff is professional and courteous. Lily was amazing! This was my family’s first time experiencing The Melting Pot and they were thrilled and we all left with full satisfied bellies. It was awesome to share one of my favorite places with them. Thank you!

About the restaurant
The Queen Anne Victorian at 210 Savannah Road in Lewes, DE has stood tall for over 100 years. Built in 1899, Captain W. “Diver” Johnston at the age of 52 collaborated with his business partner (William H. Virden) to build a beautiful new house for him and his wife, Isabella. Records indicate that he paid $400 for the entire lot, one of the most prominent sites in downtown Lewes.Over the next 100 years, the Victorian structure built in the style of Eastlake, an English architect, served as a home for many families, including longtime Lewes Mayor, Otis Smith.

The team at Raas is proud to continue the story of the Queen Anne Victorian. Each chapter of the building’s history has added to its charm and we at Raas are excited for its next chapter.


Our team’s interpretation of the word "Raas" is a celebration of food and culture while showcasing the medicinal value of Indian cuisine.

Brilliant food, intriguing selection of Indian food, great service. While we haven’t been to all fine dining restaurants in Lewes we have been to at least 10 others. Raas is by far the best choice for us. Cudos to this place. We will be back…many times

Our dinner was spectacular! My husband had the Seafood Grill. Whole lobster tail, scallops and shrimp. The scallops were to die for! I had the Waugh beef and lobster maki sushi! With creamed corn as our side.

Food was delicious. Jordan was our server and she was amazing. She made suggestions, was attentive and was an overall pleasure. Drinks from the bar were on point too! Our family of four spent about 2.5 hours there… not because of slow service but because of the experience of cooking your own food. It is a great way to relax and spend some time together with the ones you love!
