My husband, my family,and my friends have all experienced Serendipity multiple times. There is nothing bad to say about this little Italian gem on the Indian River Inlet. You can get sandwiches, pizza, stromboli, seafood, steak, pork, pasta, Polish specialities, bread buffet, alcohol, desserts and a fantastic "family" feel in a fabulously over the top decorated little restaurant with indoor...

My wife and I were driving through Delaware and while taking a short cut noticed a sign for Serendipity. A family friend who delivers wholesale foods to Serendipity had mentioned to us that it is the cleanest restaurant he services He was right as it is spotless and shining. The view sitting right over the Indian River is terrific and... More

As a tall person, I had a full experience with the decor all over the restaurant's ceiling. Once you can actually sit down and look at it, it's very pretty and stylized. Our waitress was very nice, and I tried the lasagna. Be warned, though. The size they give you could easily feed your whole table!

The restaurant is right on the Indian River Bay so the view is always great. It has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and the food is good. Service is sometimes spotty but we noticed that they have hired young people as summer help and they are fantastic! Service has never been better! They have all kinds of food but my favorite... More

Serendipity is a fun place mostly due to it's over the top decor which is always colorful and loosely related to the seasons. The family operated restaurant is a decent place for dinner but don't expect any "wow" factor as the food is basic and a bit bland. That said the portions are generous and the bread buffet will definitely... More

Two couples of us were on the motorcycles. Wives thought we were headed to Pork-n Park. Instead took them on a nice ride to Oak Orchard and the Serendipity! They were very pleased with our surprise. The food and service is always great. We all got Italian and it was very good with large portions. The bread basket alone was... More

Always have good time in this restaurant. Great view of the Indian River so try to get there before dark. Menu leans towards Italian. If you like big portions be sure to try their fabulous lasagna.

When we first moved here was the spot I looked forward to going to. Now not so much. The atmosphere is quaint, parasols on the ceiling, waterfront view, but when the food is mediocre at best it doesn't matter what your surroundings are like. And for what ever reason reason, the food has progressively gone down hill...
