We're locals and this place rocks! I'm an oyster stew fanatic and this has the best I've ever tasted. We'll brave the traffic to go into Rehoboth for the food here. Everything we've ever had was outstanding. They have several kinds of oysters on the menu, as well as clams, seafood and terrific mac and cheese. Chef is amazing. Oh,... More

We went in March, 2013 for dinner. We didn't have to contend with any crowds as Rehobeth was deserted. The seafood was the best I've had in Rehobeth in over 20 years of visiting. Each dish is individually prepared, in a creative way. This also takes time, so be prepared to wait. Staff very nice with excellent knowledge of the... More

We started at their happy hour with fried oysters, steamed shrimp. And craft beers. Then proceeded to dinner with an oyster sampling, and wonderful fish dishes. What a treat, we can't wait for a repeat performance. The clientele, service, and overall ambiance was superb!

Perfect in every way! Crowded but for an obvious reason. Try the oyster sampler and a vodka oyster shooter. Beer selection is fabulous too. Andrew & Autumn

This is a place I would go back to any time we're in Rehoboth Beach. Excellent selection of beers on tap and bottled, incredible raw bar and extraordinary service. We know there is always a crowd ready to descend upon this place, so we picked an in-between lunch and dinner hour to get there and it was still mostly full,... More

I found the oyster house on tripadvisor while I was spending a night in Rehobeth Beach. I went alone and was greeted by a very friendly hostess. The waitress helped recommend a beer which was awesome. The atmosphere is cozy with a lot of regulars it seems. The food was incredible. I really recommend the clam chowder. Apparently, though, the... More

On a stormy night, this wass a welcoming spot. Great service, food and location. Enjoyed the steamed clams in a very subtle spicy broth. Had the lobster mac and cheese which was loaded with big chunks of lobster. Spouse enjoyed one of a large selection of (Thatch Island - MA) oysters followed by a very generous lobster roll and great... More

The seafood is so Fresh! Happy Hour is great value, wonderful shrimp, clams, oysters, sliders & drinks! Bartenders Jamie & Amy make it just perfect. Great atmosphere, they just need more sitting space for Happy Hour, we'll be back soon.

Great restaurant. You have to go to Happy Hour on Friday Night, good prices and good drinks. Jamie and Amy are the best bartenders in Rehoboth. J & H
