Beach to restaurant!

We stayed at the beach all day and would have lunch at Obie's. Close to where we stayed for our hotel and beach spot. Clams were really good. We had seconds. Turkey burger not good, very dry and gluten free bun was terrible. Nice atmosphere for any crowd. Good bar selection too. We ate on the... read more

The setting is perfect for lunch or an afternoon cocktail. The staff is friendly. It's a great place for people watching.

Great setting for an afternoon cocktail. Just there today and older lady manager had major attitude. Said we had to sit at the bar if we only wanted a drink. It is the way she spoke to us. We left and will never go back. We probably would have eaten. Oh well still a beautiful day!

Our waitress Steph was extremely helpful and attentive. My husband and I both have problems that we can't have sugar so we ordered unsweetened iced teas. Steph told us that most people were requesting sugar in their tea so the restaurant started making whole pitchers that way. When we told her that we could not have sugar, Steph went out... More

My husband and I were walking the boardwalk looking for a nice place to have a drink by the ocean and we walked into Obie's. We sat at the outside bar which was very small, but had a great time talking to locals and the bartender who was great. Didn't order any food, but really enjoyed our time sitting outside... More

We grabbed lunch there twice over the weekend, given that Obie's is convenient from the north end of the boardwalk and Henlopen Hotel. The first day we got a tuna steak sandwich which was okay but the fries were cold. The second day we got crabcake sandwiches; my wife thought they were good but I wasn't so impressed. Decent, but...

It's so convenient when sitting on beach,to be able to walk up,for lunch and a drink.the crab cake sandwich was good,a little pricey,but your looking at the ocean. The Long Island ice teas are very good! It's a good lunch spot on the beach!!

Whenever I need to see the ocean, this is my place. They have such a great beach vibe, and you always get what you come for. The menu is limited, but consistently good. I usually go for the shrimp salad sandwich or hobo dog. I would love to see some better beers on tap, but the frozen cocktails are pretty... More

Love this place and the views - it's the perfect place to grab lunch on the beach. The exterior walls open so you feel as if you are outside, or you can sit outside. They have a nice drink selection and their ordinary menu is actually really good. The shrimp salad sandwich is great, their hotdogs are huge and they... More
