My boyfriend and I had a great meal here during the middle of the day when it was pretty empty. Service was a bit slow and not attentive, but the food was good and the restaurant was clean.

We went here for a family dinner. Now I understand that space is an expensive commodity in Rehoboth, but I expected them to have a better arrangement for people waiting for a table. I was with my mom, who has some health issues. We had...More
