“Good food at decent prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The atmosphere is a combination of pub and seafood house, and on a cold, rainy day it was very inviting. You can also eat out on the porch (enclosed by plastic sheets) in more mild weather. The service was friendly and efficient and, I might add, not overly rigid about substitutions as so many restaurants are in Rehoboth. The food was surprisingly good; I had a fried chicken sandwich with coleslaw and baked macaroni. They have very nice selection of beers and wines. All prices seemed to be quite reasonable. Give it a try.

“Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Spent a week in Dewey and drove over to Rehoboth each day just for their happy hour. If you like oyster on the half shell this is the place. A dozen for $11 and they are the plumpest, freshest oysters yet. Arrange on a bed of ice and served with 2 types of vinegar and the traditional tomato based with horseradish on top to mix together if you want and slices of lemon. The steamed clams are done perfectly and served with warm melted butter. While we were there the dinner special from 4 - 6 was a 1 1/4 steamed lobster with 2 sides for $17.99 which went to $29 after 6. Again, done perfectly, came out of the shell with ease, tender and succulent. This is a "must do" every year for us.

“I like their happy hour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This was the second time we ate there. We were looking for a lunch and found they had a happy hour with reasonable prices on food and beer. The food was pretty good, the beer was cold, and we didn't spend a lot. I'd go back.

“great dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This was our first time in Rehoboth Beach. We were here for a baseball tournament. We were able to make a reservation for a large group which they accomadated us very well since it was fairly crowded there. we had some excellent food i got crab imperial that was very good. We had some appetizers like crab dip and hush puppies that were excellent. Only thing negative i would say was that is was a bit pricy but it is in a beach town.

“Great happy hour at the bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Excellent specials during happy hour at the bar. We devoured $5 dozen clams, $5 chicken wings, $8 crab cakes and $9 for a dozen crab legs. All were excellent. Some draft beers were $2 as well. Friendly attentive service by Amy at the bar.
