Our server was very nice and provided great service.. Unfortunately, it was mediocre bar food at best. The ribs were terrible not at all the " fall off the... More

Summerhouse is very consistent- never a bad meal. Service always excellent - wonderful and big salads. Great steaks and burgers. Great seafood dishes. And the Neva's potatoes are to die for!

If you want a restaurant with a wide variety of choices, with a friendly family atmosphere, you MUST go to Summerhouse. The lunches are delicious and the dinners even better. You will not regret your choice, it is one of the best in all of Rehoboth.

This was our first visit to Summerhouse and the food was very good. I had the chicken marsala with mashed potatoes and was pleased with the portion size and taste of the food. The waitress was very attentive and provided great service. Menu is quite pricey though. The only problem is that even during the week, if you don't make... More

Friends wanted to go out to eat with us on a busy July Saturday in Rehoboth, but we didn't want to wait for a table. So I searched for a place that took reservations, and ended up here. The person on the phone said they take a limited number of reservations until 6 pm, so we made a reservation for... More

Went here for dinner one night with family. Entrees were very good (son had burger, I had chicken sandwich and wife had crabcake). Appetizer (crab dip) was just OK, not a huge portion. Service was decent. Would probably eat here again.
