I have gone here three times and I am not impressed. Mediocre food at best. Save your money and try Bethany Blues if you want good BBQ in Rehoboth Beach. I like to give places a chance and I did that here but really---save your money.

This is a great place for BBQ, they have some of the best BBQ around, I particularly like their BBQ Brisket. Check that out and their very nice happy hour.

Great crab cakes, casual dining right on the main street leading to the boardwalk. Busy, noisy, outdoor seating, fine for kids, service and food were quick. Good sized portions. Kids portions are HUGE, 2 kids under 6 could split one meal. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Having already had good experiences with lunch at the Charcoal Grill, we decided to try the Brunch. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Also had live music that added to the experience.
