This is the only restaurant we visited during our week in Rehoboth Beach that was so good, it warranted a return visit.
NOTE: The place is packed. Get a reservation if you can, or, consider having an early dinner before the place gets crowded. Lines stretched in front of the place with people waiting to get in.
Service is friendly and prompt. For some reason, there were a lot of people bringing kids in to the place -- somewhat unusual for an upscale place, but we were lucky. They were well behaved for the most part.
The rooms are spacious, but somewhat noisy.
For starters, had a "dark and stormy" cocktail, served in a mason jar. It was delicious, and cost around $10. The next time we went, I had a Heineken. My waitress asked if I wanted a glass, and I said yes. Out came another mason jar. Beer in a mason jar doesn't seem to work as well as a pilsner glass or mug, but what the hey!
They serve delicious flat bread to start, along with a garlic butter spread. Delicious! We had to get a reload both evenings (more on this later).
My wife had a salad both nights to start. She raved about it, particularly the house dressing (more on this, too). I had the beet/goat cheese salad one night (delicious) and the corn/crab chowder the next (also very enjoyable if not a bit on the heavy side).
The first night I had the day boat scallops which were huge, sweet, and tender. Excellent. The second night, I wanted to go for something completely different, so I had the "deconstructed lasagna" which was nice and flavorful, with a healthy portion being served, but the pasta was a bit mushy.
Neither my wife nor I had room for dessert, but the offerings were tempting. I ended things with a double espresso with a shot of sambuca and left satisfied.
Now, the bummer. You can buy the salad dressing, and flat bread from the restaurant if you want. We wanted, but the flatbread was $15/pkg...pretty expensive if you ask me. We didn't want to take it, because we weren't ready to go home and figured we'd pick some up on getaway day. Our waiter said we could get it at the "Big Fish Grill" market on route 1. So off we went. What a shock to find out that it was only $3/package for the flat bread there. COME ON GUYS! No need to take advantage of customers like that. FIVE TIMES THE MARK UP (probably more if they're buying at wholesale prices). That's the only bad thing I have to say.
Check out and enjoy the Salt Air. Just don't buy any take-homeables!
