I have been visiting Rehoboth for years. I've walked by Obie's and didn't ever think to check it out since it's on the boardwalk. During my last trip to Rehoboth I went there and loved it so much that I went back for a second and third visit. The first time, I went there just for drinks. They had a... More

Excellent piña colada! Nachos good. The view and location can't be beat. For some reason trip adviser shows it a block from the beach, but it is in fact on the boardwalk. Good spot for drinks!

We have been coming to Obie's for over 25 years. Nothing can compare with this spot for ocean views and great bartenders. Whether you are there for cocktails or a bite to eat, the views make up for the below-par food. Jim @ the bar is terrific.

I worked at this place back in the 90's and it was the place to be. It has gone steadily down hill. The food was average, the staff was friendly, but the flying insects were OUT OF CONTROL! The place is filthy, probably won't return.

This restaurant is on the boardwalk in Rehoboth. Outside dining and bar for casual bar food. Nice bar inside with open sides, overlooks boards and ocean. Fun atmosphere.

My husband and I were in Rehoboth for the weekend and stopped by Obie's for a casual dinner. It's located right on the boardwalk with inside and outside dining, although even the inside dining feels open-air as well. The views are especially nice from the upper level. We both ordered the rib dinner and it was delicious, falling off the... More

Wrap and burgers were really good; salad on the small side but very yummy raspberry salad dressing! Staff really friendly and filled my glass every time before it was empty!

Obie's By the Sea is a great place to get a quick bite or cocktail/beer on the Boardwalk. There outside seating has some atmosphere and the food quality is above average. The sunsets and people watching from this bar are also great.

I was surprised how limited their menu is, especially considering that what they do make is not that good! Stick to the drinks and the view if you visit

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
