“Wonderful dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

During a recent holiday weekend in Rehobath Beach we had dinner at the Oyster House. What a treat. There were four of us and we were all very pleased. I had the fried oysters and they were cooked to perfection with a very tartly broccoli and cauliflower medley on the plate as well as red cabbage. All ingredients were fresh. My husband had a sampling of raw oysters and he commented on how "buttery" they were and fresh as well. Our friends has the "wreck fish platter, calamari and Caesar salad." Everyone was pleased with lots of "oohs and ahhs" at the table. The atmosphere was positive and upbeat and the waiters were very efficient. Would highly recommend!

“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.
