Stopped on our last day in Rehoboth, wish we would have stopped sooner. The ribs are really good and the salad with them was a nice surprise with garden greens, tomatoes, cukes, walnuts and dried cranberries. Hot dogs are huge and served on a fresh bakery roll. Service could have been a little more attentive. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely... More

Maybe we were lucky with our food choices but we got the shrimp salad sandwich and chile dog and both were very good. The rolls were toasted and good. We dine out a lot at both high end restaurants to pub fare. We both thought the food was better than average pub fare. Can't beat the location. Yes there were... More

My family decided on OBies after walking by and smelling "awesome burgers". We love dining outside on the boardwalk. The waitress was nice and helpful. The burgers were average. They did not live up to their smell. The fries were average. But unlike the many other outdoor meals we have experienced, the flies and gnats were something out of a... More

Great spot for an afternoon libation and a quick bite. The view of the beach from the top level are quite fantastic. We sat on the deck since we were coming off the beach and sand covered but prefer the view from up above. One of our guests ordered a daquiri from the deck bar (labor day) and was told... More

This is a great place to relax, eat a meal, and have a cocktail. We ate outside on the deck with a great view of all the activity on the boardwalk. The food was good and it's fun to chill and sit back with an adult beverage! We love to eat outside!

I would love to take this place and make it so much better. With its convenient seaside location on Rehoboth's Boardwalk, Obie's has a built-in captive audience. The servers we nice and attentive but what's a beach bar without some fun music? I've been to funeral homes that have more of an atmosphere! Food was so-so except we all agreed... More

Visited Rehobath to check out the boardwalk and decided to eat at Obie's by the Sea to relax and enjoy the view. The location is great as you can sit and look out at the ocean. The food is just standard beach/tourist fare. It's not bad but if not for the location would not eat there. Service was good and... More

Wow Obie's has been open seasonally for three decades plus and we finally popped in for a cold craft beer and delicious lunch at the bar. Obie's is steps off Rehoboth boardwalk and an excellent spot to cool off with a open breezy bar and great menu. 32 years of business speaks for their delicious food and bar service. We... More

We were doing a day on the beach and decided on take out from here. No one was in line, so we got our order filled very quickly. Ordered cheeseburgers with lettuce and tomato, no onion. Besides being rather expensive, they were tasteless -- this may be a first, but I would have preferred McDonald's. Not as ordered -- they... More
