Returned after many years' absence and was pleasantly surprised. The outdoor dining area and bar is right on the boardwalk so there is good people watching and nice views of the beach and ocean. Sitting indoors is a good option when the weather is too hot outside, because many of the tables and the bar are located by big open... More

After a long walk on the beach, I went here today for lunch. It is an open air restaurant with additional seating under umbrellas out front up against the Rehoboth boardwalk. I ordered a dozen steam clams but my waitress, Chelsea informed me that they were temporarily out of clams so I switched to a bowl of Maryland crab soup... More

Rehoboth is a tourist town. Tourist money is good money. Stopped in with the family for drinks on vacation and the two bartenders could of cared less. They obviously have a pension cause customer satisfaction and the corresponding vacation tip wasn't important. We all sat back and watched them and when there buddies or locals came up all was good.... More

We did not eat here, just had drinks 7/13, 7/14. I had to write a review to compliment the bartenders at the outside bar. Jack was our bartender the first night. We really enjoyed Chatting with him & found we had many people in common. Next day met Steve, who also was fun & we had much in common with... More

If you are looking for burgers, hot dogs and wraps, this place can hit the spot. Walk in from the boardwalk. Friendly service. Nothing fancy ... Just straight decent food.

Came here twice last week while on vacation in Rehoboth - mostly because of their location while on the beach. Had some beers and drinks - good. Food was "OK" - had the crab dip - good but the chips suck, Had the fish and chips - better. Slow service for sure. I think this is due to inexperienced servers.

Visiting friends in Delaware (Milford) I was enjoying a relaxed "reunion" after years of separation. I made but ONE request of my hostess: "PLEASE get me to the beach!" My first time in Rehoboth, I went with friends familiar with the area and they selected Obie's for lunch. After assuring that *I* had the best view of the beach, we... More

Just visiting Rehoboth for a few hours. Went to first restaurant we came across. Obie's is very well known. Good ambiance and descent staff. I ordered the batter-fried fish and a side salad. My wife ordered the crab cake sandwich and side salad. The prices were steep, but we were ON the beach. But when I had to use a... More

Great place to kick back and relax while watching the ocean and the passersby on the boardwalk. Food is basic but good, and the wait staff and bartenders are friendly and efficient. Perfect setting for a vacation drink with friends and family.

Thank Lisa M
