This has quickly become one of Rehoboth's finest! Great fare and great service. The Shrimp & Grits are likely my favorite dish in all of Rehoboth. I just hope not too many people catch on to this place or it will be even harder to get a table.

We went for drinks and appetizers. The place is small but nice enough, if you sit out front and not in the back, which is just a room with no windows. The drinks were a little high and not very good, but the beer selection and the appetizers were good. We made a meal out of the appetizers.

Stayed in Bethany and everything was closed in the early season, so we took a chance and drove to Rehoboth to Shorebreak Lodge. What a decision....My wife had steamed mussels, which came in a chorizo based sauce, I had steamed clams in a white wine and garlic sauce with fresh herbs. Both dishes came with grilled garlic bread. Both dishes... More

Visited the Shorebreak lodge last night because we had a groupon, loved it! The blue and white atmosphere is cheerful and fun. And the front room/bar area is a bit noisy, but I liked the positive vibe. Service was excellent throughout the meal. And the food....YUMMY start to finish. Our group had the mussels, Thai chicken wings and the naan... More

Having eaten in so many restaurants specializing in sea food, I have to say that this was defiantly on of the best meals that I had. I am always hesitant to order fish, even in some of the best restaurants in NYC. I decided to take a chance and ordered yellow tail tuna. I am so glad I did The... More

This was my first trip to Shorebreak and I'm a local! The menu was very eclectic and I chose the marinated and grilled octopus. I've had octopus in Barcelona and I thought it was wonderful there, this was by far much better. It was tender, flavorful and even attractive! It came with roasted potatoes and butternut squash, very excellent. The... More

I've dined at Shorebreak Lodge twice in the last month. We went back the second time because our first meal there was excellent. Our second visit didn't disappoint. The menu changes frequently but some staples are the cheese plate (scrumptious) and the wild mushroom bruschetta (wonderful flavor). The Thai Chili Wings were another hit at our table. The grilled octopus... More

The restaurant is a stone's throw from the ocean. It was super clean, and modern in new decor. We were greeted immediately by the hostess, and given a menu, with explanations. A small bar added to the ambiance of the place. Parking was on the street right outside the building. The food was fresh, plated nicely, & seasoned to perfection--and... More

We were looking for a nicer place that could accommodate a vegan & omnivore... Success! We were both happy. Great food, good options, & very affordable. If you come for happy hour to start- a huge bargain bar menu & drinks.
