Nine people for dinner, three children, difficult to please everyone. A great deal of steaks and seafood, generally well prepared, with adequate portions. My son had the prime rib special, which included salad and dessert, for 26 dollars it was a good deal! The fish tasted fresh and was nicely served. I had a pasta special which was disappointing, shrimp... More

Today is Monday and that means half price burgers, so we ordered a tuna burger with vegetables and a salmon burger with cheesy potatoes. The wasabi aioli with the tuna made it great and I also used it with the veggies to raise them from perfectly cooked but ordinary to outstanding. The tuna was moist, slightly pink. So happy with...

We always go the Summer House when in Rehoboth or drive up from Ocean City, Maryland. Monday night is 1/2 price burger night. The food is always delicious. Although the wait can be 45 minutes to over an hour, it is worth the wait. Great place, pleasant atmosphere and good waitstaff.

We recently had a really great dinner here. Our original thought was that it would be fairly typical touristy food due the restaurants location on the Main Street heading towards the boardwalk. But we were happily wrong about that! Great food, creative options, great service! We will be coming back!

We were wandering downtown and looking for a place for 6 of us to eat. 3 adults and 3 kids. We asked an older gentleman who was working in town where to take everyone who was starving!

Our hotel staff recommended the Summerhouse when we were looking for a late lunch on a rainy afternoon. This place really hit the spot. It looks like a sports bar (and probably is), but it also serves some very nice lunches. My fiancee had a homemade tomato soup with a lightly toasted grilled cheese sandwich on excellent bread. She originally... More

The service was excellent. The staff was very accommodating and attentive to caring for our requests for specific variations from the menu. The pace was relaxed while making sure that the children were cared for in a timely manner. The food preparation was as requested. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any vacationing family or couple.
