Monday Burger Night

My partner and I shared a wonderful meal this evening. It was burger night and they were fantastic. $5.75 for a burger and side of fries, who could possibly complain??? You could tell the burger was fresh and not frozen. Our server, Sarah was a gem. She was friendly, smiled and was a very... read more

It was winter and it was raining. We decided to just eat at the "next" place on the left. So happy it was the Summerhouse! We had an amazing meal (picked from daily menu) and the atmosphere was relaxed but fun. We stayed at the bar long after our meal was over and enjoyed the night!

We've visited this twice for lunch in the past math and found both occasions very pleasant. They offer lunch specials in addition to the regular menu. Service was very good. While our sandwichs have always been excellent, the fries and chips were not the best this past visit. This restaurant also offers specials almost every night. We've had similar good... More

I loved this restaurant. My sister and I had dinner there and shared an appetizer (baked brie), goat cheese salad, and a tuna entree. Oh, wow. everything was so delicious. Definitely going back next time I am at Rehoboth Beach. Service was top notch and we never felt rushed. Perfect. Highly recommend!

As my wife and I were looking at the menu outside the restaurant, as a gentleman was walking into the restaurant he said "Half priced burgers tonight". We ordered the half priced burgers and they were prepared as requests, medium rare and were very good. I order cole slaw that was a little dry for my taste, but it was... More
