We always make a point to visit this restaurant while we are on vacation in Bethany Beach Delaware. Its always been a good experience with the quality of food & the friendly service. The only negative I would have is that when you first enter the building it smells of musty wash cloths or rags. I think it may be... More

We always make a point to go to this restaurant on vacation every year. Go for the lobster special between 4 pm and 6 pm. Best value for the best meal you'll have in Rehoboth!

Thank you for leaving a positive review, and better yet, a picture to accompany it! We have been hosting that lobster special for years now and it truly is one of the best deals in town! We run this special year round, so whether its spring, summer, or fall, we will have lobster! Thanks again! More

We feel like our po'boy's are hidden gems on our menu! They are packed with seafood and served with a delicious house made cajun tartar sauce, unless of course you get the buffalo style which comes with ranch or blue cheese. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal and we hope to see you again next time... More

We would have had a long wait for a table but the bar was empty and we could take a seat right away. So we did. It was a pleasant surprise. The oysters were very good and the hot crab dip was great! For a fast light dinner this was great!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad that your family, for the most part, enjoyed their meals. I am also glad to hear that we were able to replace the bad steak with something much better. I want to apologize again for the steak. Obviously the kitchen can't tell how the steak is going... More

After a little wait to get in, it was worth the happy hour (Drinks were outstanding) The food was all good for our large party. Barmaid was great, Waitress was good, Outside Hostess was a little testy and unfriendly..

We went into Rehobeth looking for a place to get crabs as well as other seafood. We researched this place, and decided to give it a shot. Only one person in our party wanted crabs, and ended up ordering ½ dozen Extra Large. They had 4 sizes, Medium, Large, Extra Large and Jumbo. All of the crabs were at least... More

Last summer we had a party of 17. We wanted to to get Crabs. We could have gotten them from a pickup place and eaten them at the house but we decided to eat at claws instead. We called several days prior and they said they don't take reservations, we confirmed based on the party size and that we would... More
