Quirky decor..great view..good food

This little gem sits right on the waterfront..the view is delightful. The menu is a mix of Italian ..some Polish..and your basic sandwiches. I had a ravioli florentine that was delicious. The pasta is homemade..the marinara sauce quite good. There is a homey feeling here..as if you were eating at... read more

Serendipity Restaurant worth the trip for a fairly good restaurant for pizza with a bay view and wonderful service usually!

This place is off the beaten path. We have visited Serendipity twice. We went back the second time for my birthday celebration. I really like the location and the looks of the place. Lot's of color with paper umbrellas covering the ceiling. On both visits I have really enjoyed my meal, and the service is friendly and welcoming. It's a... More

Serendipity is set on the Indian River and the dining room has a lovely view. The decor is fun and reminds me of Mardi Gras. The food is quite good. Better than most other restaurants in the Millsboro area. We've enjoyed both breakfast and dinner here. Give it a try!

Good food and lots of it. The wait staff could not be more helpful and they are nice as can be. Try Serendipity and you will not be sorry.

My grandparents live near Serendipity in Millsboro, DE outside of Rehoboth Beach. Serendipity is a nice place to stop for breakfast or dinner. They do breakfast often and my Nan loves the Polish Platter offered at dinner. When visiting, we stopped for dinner in December. First of all, the decor at Christmas was beautiful with Christmas trees inside and out.... More

Not too out of the way by local standards, and a very nice surprise located on the Indian River in Oak Orchard. It took up over a year to try this place and we had a great breakfast, met some nice local people, enjoyed the fabulous décor and furnishings- all-in-all a very enjoyable Sunday morning. Will be going back for... More

My husband and I eat at Serendipity several times every month. The Stromboli is always so good and so are the dinner specials. We look forward to the décor because it's so artsy and unusual. We've taken several friends there and we've always had a great dining experience.

Last two times has been a disappointment. We did give them a second chance but no more. The view is nice and so is the décor.
