Excellent food

Opens at 5 though the bar opens earlier. So, if you are not there at 5 you may have to wait. A little too loud but food is certainly worth it.

We enjoyed the food very much. It wasn't fancy but very well prepared and great tasting. I was disappointed in the atmosphere. The location is below a hotel or condo unit and looks more like a store front. The view was of the street. When the dinner crowd arrived I felt claustrophobic. It diminished our dining experience of other wise... More

A top choice for us to introduce the kids to better quality food ;). This is a great place to enjoy a meal for us as a couple or the whole family. We always run into people we know so obviously popular with locals, always a good sign!

This is a really good restaurant, particularly for the seafoods it offers. The menu usually is not the same from day to day, so it's best to check their website for the day to want to dine there. For our last trip, we had a party of five and the bill including four alcoholic drinks came to about $250. Three... More

Great seafood ( and others) menu! Best in RB. Hate to write this and let the tourists know! Always very busy and very good. If you go, just be prepared for noise. It is very noisy, but the food is worth it.

Stopped in for dinner, very busy, didn't mind having drink at bar while waiting for table. Once seated, we both ordered seafood. Very good salmon, also bouillabaisse was excellent. Very large portions!

Okay, if you have ever been to the Henolpen City Oyster House, you know it doesn't really need any help in terms of excellent reviews. It is packed every day. Order any of the oysters, steamed clams, or my favorite, the steamed shrimp which are in spices and cooking onions, and you will will be seafood heaven. The place is... More

Great seafood and friendly, fun ambiance. Exceptional Bloody Mary's and superb Clams Casino. A visit to Henlopen City Oyster House is a must when in Rehoboth Beach.

We bellied up to the bar Sunday night around 530p--fabulous rum punch and 16 raw oysters - then we ordered some Rockefellers too! Super friendly bar staff and great food/drink - what more do you want?
