If raw clams and oysters are your thing, you should check out the Happy Hour. Excellent craft beer and house wines plus the raw bar makes this a must stop. The dinners are also good. The only disappoint was the poor service. I had to find my own plates and napkins and utensils, as well as walk up to my... More

We had the best oyster stew ever and the black drum fish was fabulous. Sangria was refreshing was excellent. Will definitely visit again when in Rehoboth. Note- go early or make reservation. Place has very limited seating.

We came back for our 3rd visit to Henlopen City Oyster House during our recent visit to Dewey Beach. After this visit, it's official - Henlopen City Oyster House is our favorite restaurant in Rehoboth. The menu changes daily but I was in luck - they had my favorite dish on the menu! The fried scallops with bacon Carmel sauce... More

We ate here last weekend after the hotel recommended as the place to get oysters. It only a short drive from Dewey Beach and easy parking now that the season ended. They took our name & cell and text us to let us know when our table was ready, that was such a nice way to wait. From the minute... More

I never eat fried scallops or brussels sprouts but after reading the description I had to try these Day Boat Scallops with bourbon sweet potatoes, spicy roasted Brussels sprouts and bacon caramel sauce. The scallops crispy coating was as if they coated th in popcorn, as they do the Pacific halibut; no, it is flour, but so crispy and tasty,... More

My fiancé and I were staying in Dewey last weekend and hopped in the car for the short ride to HOH. This is our 3rd visit to the restaurant and it keeps getting better! We did have a bit of a wait on a Friday night BUT they couldn't have made it easier. They text you when your table is... More

We went for the oysters but also tried the soft-shell crabs. Oh my, they were the best our seafood loving group has ever had!!! Traveling in September, we avoided the horribly long waits in peak season (no reservations accepted). Had a brief wait on a Wednesday night & proceeded to enjoy a feast of oyster choices and a variety of... More

We love Henlopen City Oyster House! The food is outstanding, service is knowledgeable and friendly, and they have a wonderful menu including fresh oysters! If I HAD to choose a favorite oyster, it would be the Kumamoto, which is happily found here. We always find a nice choice of east and west coast oysters which we enjoy raw, deliciously served...

I had the scallops here but wished I had ordered the crab after I saw the huge lumps of crabmeat. The scallops were very good with cheesy grits and a kohlrabi slaw. The wine list was notable. Excellent meal all around. Friendly young staff.
