Bethany Blues catered my daughters wedding. They did an outstanding job. The beef brisket, smoked chicken and the pork was great. The staff was very efficient and went above our expectations. There was plenty of food, they directed the guests to the buffet in an orderly fashion, and cleaned up quickly. Jessica was great to work with and I would... More

So Bethany's is a barbecue place. We had a party of 16 and the service was excellent. I do not particularly love barbecue, and after seeking advice from a very helpful waitress I ordered their crab cakes. They were a delight. Very delicious lump crab meat, not overrun with filler, just great meaty crab. My husband loved his Brisket.... And... More

6 of us all liked our different main courses (I loved my brisket) and enjoyed our appetizers of Bacon Blocks and String Onions . The sides were all yummy Only downside was the loud trivia game in the bar area.

Order the fried green tomatoes, mesquite steak, cheesy creamed corn, and cucumber & onion salad. A little snafu with the appetizer arriving, but overall excellent service. Rarely see fried green tomatoes up north -- excellently prepared with tasty dip. I rarely eat red meat, but when I saw "mesquite" I just had to have it and I was not disappointed.... More

I first discovered Bethany Blues many years ago, in Bethany Beach. I had eaten at this location on three separate occasions. While the wait was always long, and service could be mediocre, the food was always fabulous! I loved the baby back ribs, brisket, pulled pork, & all the sides. It was truly one of my favorite BBQ joints of... More

Decided to stop on our way home from an overnight in Rehoboth. Very crowded so decided to sit in the bar area for quicker service. Waited at least 15 minutes before anyone even came to the table. She took our drink order then told us someone else would take our food order... 10 minutes later my husbands glass of beer... More

I ordered the Carolina Pulled Pork Barbeque....There are many versions of any barbeque recipe, although I am quite sure none of them suggest pouring white vinegar on barely warm, dry pork, then stirring it up to ad moisture, and serving it! Vinegar is added as an ingredient in a mopping sauce during cooking, and perhaps to add moisture to a... More

Nice, The food was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. We went on a Sunday and missed the live band that is offered Wed-Sat. That's ok, because Chingh our waiter was the best, most friendly, hip and professional person, which completely made up for missing the band. I hope he does well. My lady said it was nice to have...

This is a very nice restaurant. The food was pretty good and I would call the prices reasonable for the area. The only bad thing I can say was the restrooms were kinda gross. Will probably go back again
