One of our favorite restaurants in Wilmington and while in Rehoboth Beach; however, was disappointed in our most recent visit. Both my husband and I ordered the same entree. His seemed acceptable, mine was less than desirable and I could not eat it. My lobster was mushy and after a few taste, I sent it back.

We came here with the family to celebrate my wife's birthday. None were disappointed. Good food and service. We like to stroll the river walk after dinner, but it was too hot this time.

Love the food! Oysters are excellent, lettuce wedge is the best I've ever had. Cioppino was delicious. Never had a bad meal, great atmosphere and great happy hour specials.

This is one of our favorite seafood restaurants in the Wilmington DE area. The only rival would be Feby's in my opinion. Monday oyster night is the best. I love the "Bloody Mary oysters" with a dash of vodka. Yummy.

Never a disappointment. We have been coming here since they opened and never had a bad meal. The salads are enough to share with 2 or 3 people, the calamari was perfect, our main choices were perfect and passed around to share. The Peanut butter pie is simply heaven. The deep dish chocolate chip cookie was huge and shared by... More

We love fish, so we eat here often. In addition to the regular menu, each night there's a list of over a dozen specials based on what's available locally. Each special comes with two side dishes, but you can substitute freely, so basically it's mix-and-match. You can also order any fish that they have on top of a dinner-sized salad.... More

We went there on lobster night, (Wednesday). The Greek salad, lobster tail, oysters and green beans were excellent. Service was good and you get to draw on the tablecloth.

We arrived around 6pm and didn't need a reservation. This place was humongous with a seafood market immediately past the front door. There were model sized fish hanging all over the restaurant. Bathrooms were clean (I always check that). My husband and I with 3 young children had a scrumptious fried calamari (not ENOUGH!), Blackened Louisiana Catfish (WAY WAY too... More
