We only stopped by here during our weeklong stay as there were so many restaurants to try in the area. But the food and the service were excellent and would have gladly gone back had we stayed in the area longer. We tried a few...things from their happy hour and also the dinner menu. Dishes the we loved were the spicy octopus, chicken wings, scollop, ceviche and shellfish linguine. Our waitress was also lovely.More

Our party of majority POC was sent to the very back of the back part of the restaurant, despite a confirmed reservation and a NOT full restaurant. We had terrible service (we saw our waitress twice in the hour we were waiting for food -...once to place order, once to deliver drinks). We had made Shorebreak a regular over the many years since it's been in Rehoboth, but we will never be back again. I was disgusted with how we were treated.More

Every year, we make sure to enjoy at least 1 meal at The Shore Break when we visit Rehoboth. It is truly the best food in town. We have never had a bad meal, and it has truly been some of the best food we've...ever eaten. With members of my family being both vegetarians and meat eaters, there are plenty of wonderful options for everyone. Thanks for another amazing meal, Shore Break. We can't wait to see you again next year!More

Husband had the halibut for lunch - perfectly cooked and nicely seasoned. I had the crab cake with shoestring fries. Tasted like the ocean! One of the better crab cakes on my birthday 'crab cake tour' in Delaware/Maryland. Great service.

The food was good and services was good in the most part. My complaints relate to end of meal service and COVID safety. While my son and I are both vaccinated I reserved a table outside to be extra careful especially with the Delta variant....We were packed in like Sardines with less than 2 feet between each table. It seems greed for money was more important than safety. Then the real kicker came when the waiter kept me waiting 20 minutes to take my credit card. When I tried to hand it to the hostess she was very rude saying “no - give it to your server”. Then I asked her to get him and waited another 10 minutes. This restaurant is typical of a tourist restaurant that charges inflated prices because they can without really caring about their customers.More

Very good food and service in a relaxed beach atmosphere. Service was great and helpful. We shared the mussels and burrata apps to start, both were delicious. Pan seared halibut and scallops with roasted butternut squash were perfectly prepared. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Came for a weekend in Rehoboth and had the most incredible meal here. There were so many great options on the menu the four of us ended up sharing eight different appetizers, and each one was better than the last! Shane was a fantastic waiter...and no one rushed us to finish, which allowed us to really enjoy our meal. I would 100% recommend eating here for some great seafood and even better drinks! Also, do yourself a favor and order the clams...I'm still dreaming about them.More

I have had many crabcakes and none better than the ones I ate the other evening at Shorebreak Lodge. All lump crab meat it's a wonder what's holding them together. Simply to die for. We ate on their porch and enjoyed excellent service. Wonderful meal.
