Tasty and convenient

This is an unpretentious restaurant with great food and service at reasonable prices. The only downside is others have found it, so it can be crowded!

Stopped in for dinner with our family of five. We were seated right away, the beer was cold, the drinks refreshing and the food delicious!

The restaurant was across the road from our hotel. The hours are very convenient. We went the first night for dinner. We had hamburgers and the best french fries I have had in quite a while. The service was very good. The next evening it was late so we ate in the bar. The waitress recommended a Pinot Grigio from... More

Very good value for the money. The staff is very cheerful as well as helpful with menu knowledge. We had a 12 month old, the staff accommodated us nicely. The kiddie menu has nutritious choices (not the typical deep fried chicken fingers) meatloaf and post roast, real mashed potatoes etc. I recommend the creamy crab soup, delicious! Great salads very... More

We hit the breakfast buffet (Sunday) for the 2nd time. Lots of choices, including some unique offerings (sausage on a stick, crunchy french toast) omelets made to order, fresh fruit. Very yummy.

Have eaten here for dinner only a few times. Nothing extraordinary. Continuously return for their late night menu. Crab cake sandwich, steamed shrimp, delicious crab soup and 50 cent chicken tenders to name a few options. Not sure what time the late night menu starts but the prices are a steal for what you're getting. Bartenders make good drinks and... More

Our family of four went for Sunday lunch. Atmosphere was nice (casual), our waitress was prompt and very friendly, and our meals were excellent. Dune fries are a must, and the crab soup is delicious. Our bill was under $50, which is a good deal in Bethany Beach.

Nice combo of locals and beach-vacationers. Great happy hour daily til 6pm w/ special bar menu available also. Good value. Appetizers, burgers, chicken tenders all good. Cream of crab soup and crab melt are both solid. Good Sunday brunch as well. Mimosas our favorite drink here!

Me and my boyfriend went here for a late night drink and a snack. The restaurant is super nice inside and their staff is extremely nice. We ordered their chicken tenders with some dune fries and I was definitely satisfied! Their prices were very reasonable as well. We will definitely be back here but for real dinner next time!
