This is the best place to go for Happy Hour in the off season! Great food, great prices and the staff is awesome. Frequently the owners are in the bar and restaurant talking to the customers and serving the food and drink. You can tell that they are proud of their establishment and love their clients. The oysters are expertly... More

Very good seafood restaurant in Rehoboth. We had quick, attentive service. I had the Oyster Stew, which was delicious! a little runny, but had some nice big oysters in it. :) I recommend the Large Bottles of beer. We shared a Duval Ale and it was wonderful!

Plump, juicy, frrrrrresh, well-shucked. What else can an Oyster Lover ask for? And the rest of the menu is inventive and delicious. Who'd have thought rutabagas mashed with horseradish would be incredibly delicious?

Me and my wife both enjoyed this place. The green lipped mussels were out of this world, the coconut curry sauce that was on them was just incredible. My wife got the day boat scallops and she loved them as well. The oysters Rockefeller were excellent. Everything comes in large portions so keep that in mind when ordering.

The oysters are absolutely awesome. The oyster stew is something to die for so good. We sometimes just get oysters on the half shell with some appetizers. The owner Chris is a great guy and has steered me in the right direction for types of beer. Really good!

The raw oysters on their menu in March are fantastic. Beautifully shucked and served chilled through and through with tasty dipping sauces, but true officianadoes will eat their oysters "neat". And the Belon oyster, a specialty, is something not to be passed over. It is the tastiest oyster I have EVER had.

Had the mussels and then the scallops with mashed sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts -- sooooo good! The cask beer was yummy and we really enjoyed the opportunity to try it. Highly recommended, all of it!
