“They Know Fish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

It's nice to go to a place that knows how to cook fish, and this is one of those places. The skewered shrimp were excellent and the scallops were not far behind. The broiled cod was the best I'd had since I was in Newfoundland. The blue point oysters were fresh but not as tasty as I thought they should have been. Whoever shucked the oysters was lacking a bit of skill. There were shell particles in a couple of them and some of the oyster bodies had been pierced in the shucking process. Our servers, Taylor and the newbie Meghan were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.

“Eat at the bar - much quicker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

My wife and I were on vacation in Rehoboth and this place was recommended to us by a number of our friends. The food and service are very good. The prices are very resonable for a seafood place at a vacation destination. I had the mexican snapper and a few beers. My wife had a salad with yellow fin tuna. The bartender that evening watched us cut into our food and noticed that my wife's tuna was over-cooked. Without hestitation she removed the plate and got her a new piece of rare fish in no time at all. By far the best food we had during our vacation.

Good service, great atmosphere, food was only average. Overall it was ok. Steak lacked flavor and the fried scallops were aweful. However my potatoes were extremely delicious.
