Sidewalk seating with ocean view

Tried this place a couple of times. Food was average but service was not quite up to par. We all had an issue but we gave it another chance because of location and patio/ocean view. think it's a better place to cocktail then to eat.

This was from August 2014. Sat at the bar w/ two of my relatives. Busy! One bartender. Took a while but eventually got drinks. I had one of their blended specialties. Good. My relatives had beer. My brother in law's draft beer had mold from the tap floating in it. Told the manager. She was somewhat rude and really unapologetic.... More

Being from Maryland I always take a deep breath wen I order a "Maryland Style" crab cake. It was OK but not up to Baltimore standards. (I need to stop ordering these from the menu north of B'more.) My wife had a burger which was fine. It is close to Henlopen Hotel. Good service when we we were there. They... More

Boardwalk beach bar. A little pricey. I prefer to sit outside under the umbrellas. I like the north end of the boardwalk, more adult oriented. Around the corner, not officially in the restaurant is a take out stand which has really good burgers and dogs and some of the most reasonable prices on the boardwalk.

We've eaten here twice. Just last month we were in Rehoboth and ate here a second time and had an exceptional waitress, Stephanie. My wife and I both wanted unsweetened iced tea, but she told us they no longer served it in the outdoor section. We mentioned how I was a diabetic and that my wife had a metabolic disorder,... 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...
