We went for happy hour on a Monday night. We had the half priced hamburgers with fries which were excellent. We loved this place and will return on our next visit.

Can't beat the HH specials. Loved the martinis and fresh mozzarella over local tomato. For brunch, recommend the crab omelet and baileys coffee. Very friendly atmosphere and bar/wait staff.

The menu in the hotel ended up being more impressive than the result. This was not a bad place, but it came off as more like an Outback than what I expected. The cheese potatoes were excellent. and the potato chips were very good, but the steak was an excellent cut that could have been prepared better. The bar was... More

The Summerhouse has become part of our annual tradition on our Rehoboth vacation. I have to say that it is really our favorite restaurant now for several years in a row. This time, we lunched at Summerhouse. My son had an incredible cheeseburger and fries. So incredible that my picky eater ate everything on his plate. I had the rib... More

We started with the homemade chips and blue cheese sauce (delicious and worth the calories). My husband loved the steak and my salad special and fish entree were delicious. Would definitely recommend the Summerhouse.

This place is always super busy. There was always a huge line in front of the place. The food was good, not great. I had the pork chop special, it was good but super salty. Its not a bad place. The kids like it, and the food is OK. I heard their burgers are good but we didn't try them.... More

The Grilled Hickory Blue Cheeseburger was "fabulous," as were the homemade potato chips topped with blue cheese. My sirloin sandwich was a good choice, as was the stuffed potato side. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive.

The staff was friendly. Food was very good, although pricey. There was a long wait after we left. But if you get there before 630 you shouldn't have a long wait.
