Use to be one of our favorite places-last week ordered crab cakes that arrived burned so badly they were actually black on the outside. Did not send them back because we had a two new old and waited 60 minutes for them. Went back again tonight and ordered 2 of their famous sandwiches- which we've loved for years. Waited "only"...

I love this place, so much. They have quite a few locations in the beach area, and a few spread out around Delaware. The first Arena's I ever went to was in Rehoboth Beach, right off of Rehoboth Ave. I've been to 2 additional locations since then, several times. Ok, so first off, THE FOOD. I love it. I almost...

Good food served fast and reasonable. Nice option for breakfast and casual lunch or dinner when you don't want to try and park downtown.

Excellent food at very reasonable prices! Love sitting outside and grabbing breakfast (til noon which is a plus). Buffet is great and so are breakfast sandwiches. We go every time we are at the beach.

While we were out shopping in Rehoboth, we decided to stop by for a quick lunch. This is a very casual place with good service and great food. We both had sandwiches with their homemade chicken salad which was great! The serving were very generous... maybe we should have ordered one and split it. We were able to enjoy the... More

Stopped for lunch on the way home from a week at the beach. We were very happy first time visiters! My husband liked his fish'n chips.I highly recommend a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp.. Their homemade dressing is one of the best I've had. We'll be back.

My husband and I enjoy this place for its casual atmosphere; variety of sandwiches, appetizers, etc.; and efficient and friendly service. Our fave food item: the amazing nachos with chili. Arena's has great happy hour specials, too. We take family and friends to this Route 1 Arena's often. (We like the Arena's Deli on Rehoboth Ave., too, but have had... More

We received good service at Arena's Cafe. They are pet friendly, which is great since we had our dog with us. The food was okay, typical sandwiches and fries. My son ordered the wings, which he enjoyed.

We get Arenas every time we are in town. We like to make a run to Arenas for take out when we are on the beach. Call your order in and picnic on the beach. Won't disappoint!

Great food and awesome selection. Waitstaff is very accommodating. The only confusion is with the outside seating.
