I can't imagine there are many restaurants in Rehoboth better than this one. We sat at the bar, ate a couple dozen oysters and a couple appetizers, several cocktails and beers. We spent about three hours here, and it was just a great experience. Note that not only were we here off season, we were here the Saturday before Christmas, which I imagine is about the quietest time of the year. Their cocktail list is fun with a great top-shelf selection; their beer list is strong, though they need a few more lower-ABV beers; and the wine list is more than sufficient. The oysters were also top-notch, with a great selection (about eight options the day we were there). Highly recommend this place, though I bet in the summer it's a zoo, it's that good.

We recently had dinner at the oyster house. The seafood was very fresh and the preparation was perfect. The oysters were fantastic. We had an excellent time and the service was very good.

We decided to try the Oyster house since my parents are from New England. They loved the chowder and the oysters. Atmosphere was very pleasant! Wait staff was extremely nice!

We went here for lunch, sat at the bar. They have a nice cocktail and bar menu.
The oysters were great...the clam chowder was some of the best we have ever had!
They offer a great happy hour that starts at 3pm on Saturday's...when we stolled back by the restaurant at 3:30...the bar was packed!
I would definitely go back to this restaurant the next time we are in Rehoboth!
