We enjoyed a great lunch! I had the Salmon, Bacon, Fried Green Tomato and my wife tried the Shrimp Taco. Food was very tasty, but my wife did find the spicy mayo to be just as billed. Waiter service was friendly, knowledgable and prompt. We did beat a lot of the lunch crowd which looked like a mix of couples... More

Not a large place and always busy, but the service is excellent and the meal is promptly served. The food is so expertly prepared, we find the meals to be extraordinary with each visit. Very best fresh catch, salmon, shrimp, rockfish, and even pork belly dishes.

My wife and I had lunch here. The food and service were excellent, and the prices were much better than Rehoboth Beach, where we were staying. The waitress was very helpful with the decision on how my tuna should be cooked.

Excellent service, great food. Both a restaurant for adults as well as families. The magician who roams from table to table is terrific.

Fresh, delicious, creative. Whatever is in season was what was on the menu. Even the leomonade was real lemonade. prices were reasonable even the wine by the glass.Crab cakes were as good as I've had this side of Baltimore. Very busy when we were there but service was everything you would ask for. Small place so you may need to... More

Every time we eat here we are never disappointed with the food. The service is excellent and we like the fact that they use locally sourced seafood. Top notch with the only small negative being there are only 15 tables and unless you go during off peak hours you will wait an hour for a seat. They added 3 more... More

Do not let the strip mall outside appearance of this fabulous restaurant influence you. The food was the finest I have ever had in Bethany, and perhaps at a restaurant in quite a while. We were a party of six and each of us loved our dish. The appetizers were wonderful, with special kudos to the corn and jalapeño bisque... More
