I don't think you can go wrong with Jakes. This was our 3rd visit and its great each time. Great seafood, great choices. Cant really complain about anything. It does get crowded so plan accordingly!

Best crab cakes ever and the best service as well. Will never visit Rehobeth and not visit Jakes. It gets very crowded so be sure and arrive early.

I chose this place for my birthday dinner as I wanted a Delaware beach dinner. Not dissapointed- wonderful friendly attentive staff. A short wait, as they dont take reservations. The drinks, seafood bisque, crab cakes, and seafood platter( flounder, shrimp, scallops, etc.) were delicious, perfectly cooked, seasoned and served to order and with a smile. What more could you want.... More

We were a bit skeptical about visiting as the outside didn't call us out. But, once we were in the restaurant we found the waitstaff to be incredibly professional and helpful in describing the way the seafood was prepared. We had a wonderful scallop dish that was a bit different, but incredibly yummy!

The oysters were perfectly chilled and the sauces were tangy. The restaurant is rather large and the wait for a table was very brief. The cocktails were well made and strong.

My husband and I came to Rehoboth Beach for our vacation this year, and since Jake's was only a street away from our hotel, we decided to give it a try - and loved it ! There was a bit of a wait when we got there, so we say at the bar to eat dinner. The bartenders (I believe... More

I would compare Jake's to a higher end Red Lobster. For being RIGHT off the beach their food did not have that just caught fresh taste at all. The shrimp I ordered was heavily breaded and overcooked although it was listed on the menu as lightly breaded. My companion who is a crab/lobster fanatic was not impressed with his meal... More

We really like Jake's Seafood House in downtown Rehoboth. Great food and friendly service, even if the wait was a bit long (but you know it's good when there's a long wait). I had the seafood bisque (tasty) and the fried seafood platter (very good, especially the crab cake and scallops).

My wife and I dined at Jake's on Route 1 in Rehoboth. When we walked in, the entire place had a bad smell. I was raised in New England around fish and I can tell you, this was not right. We did stay anyway. Both f our meals were overcooked and the service was very poor. The server was more... More
