“Expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Maybe our mistake in not ordering the oysters...but was underwhelmed by the food. The presentation was just OK. Vegetable side was overcooked cauliflower and broccoli. The white fish was bland. More of what you would expect from a home cooked meal rather than restaurant quality entrees priced in the $25 range. The service was excellent, I'm just not sure the A-team was in the kitchen that night.

“Really Fresh Oysters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Every summer we spend at least a week at Rehoboth Beach and the Henlopen City Oyster House is our top dining spot out. Relaxed and welcoming, we even bring the kids. Great service and really fresh seafood.

“Always consistent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've been going to the Oyster House since they opened. The quality of the food, the friendliness and professionalism of the staff is stellar!
I always recommend this as a must do to visitors.
