“Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went here for an early dinner on NYE. Called ahead just to make sure we could get in and no problems. Service was wonderful. Great Beer selection, even had a Cask selection. Calamari appetizer was very good. I got the Sable Fish for dinner which was very good (mild). My wife got the scallops which were out of this world. Definitely will be back to eat some oysters!

“They are doing it right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We love this place. Great food and drink. Happy hour is one of the best in town. We enjoyed the lobster roll and Reuben. They are very passionate about the beer and food and it shows.

“If you love oysters . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My favorite restaurant in Rehoboth -- great food, drinks, staff and menu. Happy hour is the best - reduced drinks and appetizers. Fried oyster dinner is excellent and the choice of sides are far different than you would expect for an oyster house . .. great food.

Seafood galore. Delicious. Can be a long wait. If you like seafood in a casual atmosphere, this is for you.

“Fresh seafood fairly priced for the quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Very busy, City style restaurant with bar. Went with another couple and all four had different seafood dishes. Mixed oysters platter with 8 varieties for $16. Oyster stew was superb. Fried Calamari with baby squid rings and tentacles perfectly cooked. Fried oyster platter with choice of two sides. Everything was perfect. Service brought us hot food expediently.
Highly recommended,
