Girlfriend picked this one, and it was a homerun. She laughed at me for getting a burger at a seafood place, but that's what I was in the mood for. It was one of the best burgers I've had. Fried oyster appetizer was great, lightly breaded, juicy awesomeness. She got a HUGE tray of mussels, which she loved. Small but... More

Stopped in to try lunch at this bustling, popular Rehoboth Beach oyster/beer standout; we sampled their mussels (meaty, tasty Prince Edward Islanders), seafood chowder (w/shrimp, scallops & fish), and yummy oysters Rockefeller... a fine trio, washed down with a Magic Rock draft (England) and a room-temp cask ale (Pennsylvania). We left highly impressed and looking forward to many more visits.... More

This will be a dual review since I did try to visit this establishment twice. We went for lunch on Friday (11/07) and we were greeted and seated by the same young lady that waited on us. As a server she was excellent with suggestions on the menu and the wine. Because of her we really enjoyed our lunch and... More

Wonderful unpretentious place. (Ever-so-slightly) fried scallops with bourbon mashed potatoes are best dish in downtown Rehoboth. A little busy and noisy but food makes it a really special dining experience. Just high quality fresh seafood.

Wonderfully fresh seafood of all types - very crowded but try to go in the middle of the week. You won't be disappointed. Various oysters and also many other types of seafood.

I am glad that we waited (in the extremely noisy and crowded bar) for a table. We both ordered ordered oyster po'boy sandwiches, which had a nice serving size of fried oysters. I would have enjoyed a larger amount of the creole mustard marinated cabbage in my sandwich. The star of my dinner, however, was my side dish (included) horseradish... More

Been to this restaurant twice in the last few months and hands down, they serve the freshest and sweetest oysters in this resort town. They have an oyster menu that changes based on availability. Surprisingly, the burger we had was one of the best around. But go for the oysters, you won't be sorry. Reasons this restaurant was not 5... More

If you are looking for an excellent raw bar/restaurant this is the place. The middle neck clams in drawn butter, sprinkled with red pepper,and topped with crusty bread was delicious...not to mention the hearty clam chowder and fresh, plump oysters. A definite must. But this isn't all. After paying the bill my wife and I walked out and returned to... More
