Anytime is a good time at Bethany Blues

If you are headed home from the Beaches or the outlets, this is a great stop before heading out or as a destination restaurant not situated in the heart of your favorite Delaware Beach! Its location off Route 1 is ideal! I love the atmosphere in this place. It is really large in the restaurant... read more

A local place that seems to cherish great BBQ, Ribs and brisket done to perfection. Some of the best fries and Cole slaw I ever had. Large list of craft beers and over 100 bourbons. Live band on Saturday night was excellent. We could have eaten there every night.

Food was excellent and the service was great. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. We were a party of 8 and we all came to the same conclusion.

Waitress told us we have to wait about 10 min. or we can go to the bar side. So we went to the bar side and try to sit on the table. Another waitress came by and said "It's all taken." So we had no choice but sit on a bar counter. I ordered Mojito and it was very good.... More

My husband and I both had beef entrees - he had the brisket and I had the flank steak. Both were cooked to perfection! Make sure you try the garlic mashed potatoes and the jalapeño cole slaw!

This is a family friendly place that doubles as a locals pub hangout (due to amazing specials). Food is consistent and quite decent. Side dishes are homemade--love the hand cut fries. Service is generally quick--and the only complaint I have had is that sometimes food is just warm vs hot. However, management cares about quality and has had no issue... More

Bethany Blues has award-winning BBQ Ribs and Chicken, a delicious fact, that should get the attention of many locals and vacationers who love BBQ. An award-winning restaurant has to deliver more than BBQ, it should provide the total restaurant experience. When you enter the restaurant you are greeted by a desk more geared to a hotel. One of the two... More

One of my favorite places to eat in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area. Great-tasting food at decent prices with good service. They have yummy corn bread so make sure to ask for that as the appetizer. The portions are Huge so keep that in mind. I esp like the pulled chicken or pork on salads, but everything has been good. Restaurant... More

We went for dinner before 6PM, and we were seated right away. Waitress came to our table immediately, drink orders given. We ordered appetizers, while we waited waitress gave us a basket of delicious cornbread. We received are appetizer quickly, and then we ordered our main dish. Waitress came back often to refill our drinks and ask how we are.... More

As my title says, maybe it was a bad night. Hopefully it was a bad night! My friend and I came here because we love BBQ ribs, it was her birthday, and this place had won all kinds of awards. We ordered the St. Louis ribs. What came out looked like baby backs, but the server insisted they were St.... More
