We've been going to OC for over 10 years and just heard about this place last summer. It's hard to get a reservation and it's not cheap but it is on my top five places I've ever eaten. The place is a shack with mismatched china and plastic cups and chairs but the food is world class. Try the duck... More

This little converted fish Shack is a first class restaurant near Dewey and Rehobeth Beaches. The menu is recited, not written down. Choices are good for many tastes. The food was excellent -- fresh ingredients, delicious crispy duck,

Probably one of the best meals I have had, and I have dined at some amazing restaurants. Such a weird, quirky little place, but everything is so fresh and the chef is first class. There is no printed menu, and you have no idea how much each item costs, but it doesn't matter. Bring cash, expect to spend, and have... More

3rd time here . well worth the wait to get a seat. Always something different. Not a spur of the moment place. Need to plan ahead if planning on going here. Menu is hard to get online but always satisfied with the meal. Always recommend this place

Grove market is little more than a quirky cabin in the woods, is cash only, expensive, small and can be difficult to get reservations for. That said, we managed to get a reservation with a couple days notice due to a cancellation. It is well worth the visit. The food is outstanding and fresh. The menu varies based on what's... More

This is a hidden gem. The food is unique and amazing. We had 9 dishes, including appetizers, and 3 desserts between 4 of us. Every single dish was wonderful. I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the world and this takes a back seat to no one. Service was warm and wonderful. It's not a fancy place,... More

a hidden gem. call ahead and get a reservation. the gravel parking lot, small town market and trailer park next door just adds to the charm. no food menu as the menu changes daily. Everything on the menu is fresh that day as there is no freezer. you will not be disappointed

I do not give 5 stars expect for exceptional food, service and ambiance, but for sure this is 5 star food and service. We had some amazing crab, swordfish, and rockfish. Preparation and presentation was outstanding. save room for dessert. Book early and show up on time.
