Tucked away along the Indian River is a quaint restaurant with good old-fashioned cooking! If you can get past the tacky colorful decor, the food is very good. They make the BEST mashed potatoes that I have ever had at a restaurant and second only to my mother's. They have a bread table that you can visit and bring a... More

Fun place. sort of Shabby Chic, mixed with Drag Queen earings ! We ve eaten here several times,and it is well worth the twenty minute drive from Rehoboth. The food is always hot and comes out just as you ordered it. the servers are busy, but never forget you, and the whole evening can be a memorable experience. Loved the... More

Went to this restaurant last year on my birthday and had a great experience. Decided to return last night and were not disappointed. The seafood manicotti was huge and full of delicious crab meat, scallops and shrimp. The ravioli Florentine were equally huge and full of flavor. Jeff treated us very well and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Will return... More

We were here for lunch on Monday, July 27, 2015. We arrived too early but our waitress brought our water and sodas and the lunch menu. She told us we could order lunch at 11:00 am (it was only 10:40 am.) Our table was next to the windows so were able to view the water on the bay. Well worth... More

we were on vacation in Dewey Beach- we stumbled across this restaurant riding around. we got the worst server in the place, a blonde older woman. all the other servers (men) were lively and attentive. Ours was a zombie. Tables that were seated after us had their drinks and meals way before us. We were basically ignored and all the... More

Had dinner at Serendipity with family members who live nearby. This is not a restaurant you just "HAPPEN TO RUN INTO". It's off the beaten path, but has a good following. The decor is eclectic, TO SAY THE LEAST! italy meets Japan meets 1970 - yup, and it works. Sort of just makes you happy! Our meals were good, eggplant... More

This little Oak Orchard gem is on the Indian River but is woefully lacking in docking for boaters. The end of the dock is marked restaurant only BUT there are no provisions in place to assist docking and the 30 slips between the dock end and the restaurant are marked private. HOWEVER, one of the workers in the restaurant said... More

We boated to the adjacent dock which has designated restaurant boat parking but alas, NO CLEATS to tie up! A dangerous docking arrangement, particularly in high winds. The seating at the picture window of Indian River was tasteful with long water views. The menu varied and interesting with some unusual entries. Service was fine. The food that was delivered clearly... More
