“Oops, we can't stay away. Great place, fun atmosphere”
We visit Rehoboth beach every year and every year we like to try different restaurants. We use tripadvisor as a way to weed out bad restaurants. On our relentless pursuit to find a happy hour that we would like, we buckled down and said, well we know Henlopen has a happy hour and it starts at 3pm. We had an out of town visiter with us, so I really wanted to impress her with an enjoyable night. I was a little concerned at first because the bar area was PACKED!!! But that just goes to show the place is doing something right. We stood and tried not to let the idea that we couldn't sit bother us. As we got our first round of drinks (oyster punches...quality drink for the price) and our children were given their sodas (it truly is a treat for them as we never buy soda) everybody started chatting and we got more comfortable with the place. Eventually, I began to pay attention to who was leaving and two parties were so nice and made sure that when they got up that we would get the seating. We were planning on going elsewhere (another place that had nobody there) and were thankful to know that as seating became available for us in this packed place that now we could enjoy their happy hour food as there would be a table to put it on. The children got their clams and steamed shrimp, so simple and so amazing. My youngest got the clam chowder and ate the WHOLE bowl and it was not small. I had a little and it was outstanding, with just the right amount of smokey flavor. I got shrimp and pulled pork sliders, others got hamburger sliders. Everybody was laughing, the children were smiling we had such a wonderful time. We are very happy we visited the Oyster house again and decided to stay to eat. Great experience AGAIN!
