Stopped in here for a breakfast with the family. The place wasn't very crowded, and we were seated quickly by friendly staff. Orders were taken and delivered promptly, and the food was hot, tasty, and seemed to be fresh. Nobody had any complaints about their orders. Maybe just a wee bit on the pricey side, but really, not a big... More

The riverfront view is the attraction at this restaurant. Go early to get a window table. Local people have raved about the food. I'm a "local" now and would rather spend my money somewhere else. Food is okay; service okay; prices a bit high for "okay".

Bad decision bringing my mother here for her birthday. As we entered the gentleman at the bar told our family to sit where we like. The waitress with the glitter all over her face and neck quickly took issue to our choosing where we wanted to sit. A nice couple dining on the outside deck advised us of the flies... More

We spontaneously decided to try Serendipity last Saturday night and glad we did. After waiting in line, which was a little disorganized and a small area, we were seated. Our server was friendly enough but not very attentive. I had a house salad, next time i will pass, nothing more than iceberg, a couple of cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes.... More

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
