“Great seafood house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2014 NEW

Wife & I ate dinner here, off season no less, and the place was still jumping. It is not easy to get a table even midweek.

The seafood was great, we ate at the bar to get seated, but the full menu is open to bar patrons. Craft beers, wine and cocktails are all first rate. The food choices, service and food quality are top notch.

One of the best restaurants in Rehoboth Beach.

“The best oysters anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2014 NEW

Love the Henlopen. We eat there a few times a week when we are here and order a few dozen of the oysters of the day. I have never had a bad one! They have a great variety of oysters and whether raw or fried they are fantastic!!!! also, we ALWAYS get an order of the Lobster Mac and Cheese! Prepare to wait or sit in the bar and order some of their nice wines too.

“Been here 3x...always great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2014 NEW

Just keeps getting better and better. Wonderful oysters whether raw or fried. Marscapone turnips out of this world. Also the Lima beans. Never had anything I didn't love.

“Popular but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2014 NEW

This was our third visit here. This is obviously a popular spot as it always seems crowded and the aroma as one passes by is a real lure. Our first visit was the most enjoyable. While the service was consistently good we felt the quality of the food declined with each visit. Compared to other dining establishments in Rehoboth Beach this is just nothing special.
