I ranked this restaurant 5 stars simply because it is all it's supposed to be. Not a pretentious place, but great food and something for everybody. I take my elderly mother here for lunch, she loves the veal meatloaf. Easy to park in front of the door off season, or early lunch. It's also good for families and has a... More

on both of our visits, our window seats were swarmed with flies. we could not enjoy our meals, and there seemed to be no way to escape the annoyance. the food was average, as was the service. i doubt we'd ever return, as there are so many other choices nearby.

The travelers will like it. We were seated near the rear and was very uncomfortable. The food wasn't memorable. And I felt like I was surrounded by Very young drinkers.

When it is cold outside, it's nice to visit Rehoboth Beach and enjoy the off season. Summerhouse Restaurant does a nice job of feeding visitors and locals alike. Their burgers are great and I was especially impressed by the side dishes, a lot more choices that simply cole slaw and fries. The atmosphere is relaxed and it is only two... More

We often stop here for lunch when we go to the Tanger Outlets on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach. We have always had great service, and great food. Highly recommend the club sandwich and tomato bisque. It is phenomenal. Have never had dinner there, but will try soon. There are daily food and drink specials. If you can't find a... More

The scallop appetizer was amazing and so was the crab cake sandwich. Don't forget to order dessert,you don't want to miss the warm apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Prices... More
