After an all day shopping trip with the family, we all were very hungry. We asked a store worker where do the locals go for goo BBQ. we were told to try Bethany Blues BBQ just up the street. After being seated, we were amazed by the selection of BBQ items. Most ordered the BBQ Combos which included two, three... More

Arrived and told 25-30min wait for table for four. We got our table within 10 minutes. Our starter was nachos with brisket. The cheese on top had been melted but by the time it arrived at our table the cheese had skinned over and some cheese underneath was still in its grated unmelted state. Most nachos were cold and brisket... More

We had a birthday party here in the Barrel Room. Jessica helped coordinate everything and things went very smooth. Everyone was more than satisfied with the quantity and quality of the food. I can't say enough about this place. We have been to both locations and have never been disappointed. I would recommend this place not only for a meal... More

Excellent barbecue menu representing several regional areas noted for slowly smoked meats (Carolina, Memphis, KC, Texas) paired with a blackboard at the bar full of excellent bourbons, at least thirty, and is in Dogfish Head Ale country. Have gone to BBB for years and not disappointed. BBB also has an extensive American menu to cater to adults and children alike.

The crush of people going into Rehobeth for the fireworks was overwhelming. The streets were near gridlock going into Rehobeth, as well as the Shuttle Road where the parking and bus service into the beach was. With a party of 4 we went in the opposite direction, towards Lewes, on the Coastal Highway and stopped at Bethany Blues BBQ. We... More

Great BBQ food. Service was great. I would get the 2 combo meal, pick 2 of anything and you wouldn't go wrong. Everyone got something different and we shared. Everything tasted great. A must go place for BBQ.

Seaside resorts are not known for quality food and great dining experiences for the most part .. Add family friendly and take it down another notch .. The best thing I can say about this establishment is that their system for checkin and waiting is done via text messaging .. No need to run up to the hostess stand every... More

They have just about everything for brunch you could imagine Plus $1.00 mimosas. The wings and brisket are really wonderful.
