Good when some want sea good and some don't

The menu has both crab and shrimp dishes and regular sandwiches and salads. I had the crab cake melt sandwich which was excellent. Others had the plain crab cake sandwich and thought it rather dull. The Maryland Crab soup was very tasty.

We have eaten several times over the years. Food is good with a good selection of beers. This time our waitress seem to have forgot about us. Barley acknowledge us after we ordered and then got our food. Food we got was excellent as always wish I could say the same about service. She seemed more interested in eating food... More

Good consistent subs, soups and nachos. More a lunch spot and late night as there are lots of better dinner options. Nice variety of draft beers, and TVs are on with sports. Open year round - and a nice shaded patio off the beaten path.

There are many places to eat in RB. Arenas is definitely worth consideration if overwhelmed with the choices. Tucked away in a lane off of Rehoboth Avenue a few blocks off the river.

When in Rehoboth, we always manage to get to the Arena Deli for more than one lunchtime treat. The location is great - right in the middle of shopping district and not far from the beach. Also, the dog lovers can bring their pets for outside dining and that area is nicely shaded with awnings. We have so many favorites... More
