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

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 patio, but really enjoyed... More

This is near where we usually stay and we start off with a drink at Obies while waiting to get into our place the first day. Outdoor seating and bar on the boards, airy open inside bar with TV.'s. There is a take away window on the boards to get fast food to take to the beach. Friendly atmosphere. Decent... More

Most unfriendly bartenders in Rehoboth Beach. Too bad a place with a great location has a bartender who doesn't speak or care that your there. Our party will never go back.

We were there today for lunch. The Maryland crab soup was just ok. Husbands petite filet sandwich looked like a squished burger. My crab cake sandwich, at market price, was $18 and sucked. It tasted like Mrs Pauls. The waitress was not on top of her game either. Nice atmosphere and view but that's it. $62 for a lunch that... More

I especially enjoyed their buckets of steamed clams with corn on the cob, fries and beer. On a summer day it doesn't get any better!

So, I've been coming to this place for years and it's always a pleasure to get out of the sun and sit at the bar or on the boardwalk outside and watch the people or the ocean. My favorite is to sit at the counter at the window and look at the water. Great people watching too. Beer selection is... More

We wanted just a quick bite to eat so we went to Obies. Good beer, good steamed shrimp and good chicken fingers. But the tables were so close to each other we were butt-snuggly with the other patrons. Take out a table and let your customers be more comfortable.

My wife and I liked Obie's, which had better-than-average pub grub and an unbeatable location on the boardwalk. Yes, the service was a bit spotty and the waiter informed my wife that they had run out of shrimp only when he was delivering everyone else's order, but the crab cake she got instead was outstanding and my BBQ chicken was...
