My wife and I went to Summerhouse based on a recommendation from nearby hotel. We arrived later than 1:15 and were asked to wait for a table although there were five empty booths in the nearby vicinity. Food was only OK.

Always wanted to try this restaurant but required waiting. Got there in time this evening (6:00 PM) and were promptly seated. I ordered the shrimp and scallop linguine. It was very tasty but only had two scallops and four shrimp with the tails on. My wife ordered the crab cakes which were just okay; lacking in Old Bay. Our waitress... More

Summerhouse and FINS are probably my two fave Rehoboth spots for seafood. Sadly I didn't get FINS in on my last visit as I wanted to make sure I got a summerhouse trip at the very least...which I did. For lunch we started with a delicious quesadilla special for a mere 10 dollars and it was sooooo good. One of... More

Our first experience with Summer House was for a banquet with different fare typical of a catered affair. The choice of meals were done quite well. We were intrigue at that point to the extent of coming back at another time to try dining all a carte in the main room. In September we were fortunate to see that it... More

Had lunch on a Saturday in August.Expected typical pub food, and the menu does have pretty standard lunch sandwich choices. Nonetheless, food is well-executed and service friendly.I enjoyed a Pressed Vegetarian Panini sandwich. Sweet potato fries were outstanding.Ciabatta bread available for sandwiches if you want to go beyond traditional sandwich rolls. For what it is, Summerhouse succeeds at delivering service... More

The food is very good and the staff is always friendly. When we are in town we never miss Monday's 1/2 price burgers all day. I've never had a bad meal or bad experience at this great local watering hole.

I was in the mood for steak, so after reviewing their menu online we decided to visit Summerhouse. We did ask for our family of four to be seated in the side area because the bar area was loud due to happy hour. My children each had burgers which were good. A kids meal is served on a frisbee which... More

With a party of eight including four kids, this was a good spot for all. Our server was great, the food was good, and they were faster than we expected waiting for a table on a Saturday night.

Thank Kevin S
