Stopped in for a beer and snack. Sign said best nachos on beach. Beer was great. Nachos were abominable. Terrible. Cheese was not melted and laying on top. Skimpy on everything else. Chips stake. Bah! Bar atmosphere very unfriendly to newcomers ; sort of cliquish. Bah!

There are a number of Arena's in the LSD (Lower Slower Delaware) area - I have eaten at the one on Rehoboth Ave and on Route 1 a number of times - always good food and service. Good for breakfast if you on in a rush or a longer sit down for lunch or dinner. Good menu and beer selection.

Stopped for a snack and ordered way to much food but it was all fantastic!! We had Jared as our server & he was personable & helpful. Had Rockfish Reuban, sweet potato fries, Monterey chicken & nachos. Brought half home because it was wonderful & didn't want to leave it!! Great value!

We went to Rehoboth beach and we were looking for a pet friendly restaurant to get some lunch. We found Arena's and couldn't be happier. The outdoor patio is pet friendly, and the service was superb. The waitress welcomed our pets and even got then a bowl of water. The food was outstanding, I had a great bowl of chili... More

We ate lunch here on a warm Saturday in August. They sat us outside, which was fine by us. Seating was okay, but not particularly pleasant. There was a huge fan on one side of us, and a podium for the hostess on the other. A little cramped. The awning kept us in the cool shade. Not particularly scenic. Just... More

We stopped by this place because it was recommended as affordable. We have two grown children so we are always looking for a deal. This was yet another welcome surprise. We have been coming to Dewey/Rehoboth for 15 years and thought we had visited every place. But this was new to us. The service was friend,y and fast and the... More

We used to eat at Arena's quite frequently when my dad first moved to Rehoboth, loved it!! As the years have passed, so has its glory days. The last time we were there, we noticed the quality had definitely lessened, but we thought maybe it was a bad day. So, today, we tried again. No such luck. The sandwiches came... More

and it does a lot of local advertising, pleasant place to get cool, drinks are good but I found soup of the day oddly not good and service seems a little scattered, at least to me. Might help if they did specials, more client contact before the meal would be good.
