“Spectacular Seafood and Desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The food was truly spectacular. Not the usual fare either. I had the panko encrusted dayboat scallops with a bacon caramel sauce and bourbon mashed sweet potatoes. The combination of flavors and delicate cook on the scallops were perfect. The peanut butter pie is not to be missed. Service was prompt, polite, and friendly.

“Alwyas E X C E L L E N T Seafood fare.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We always stop into the Henlopen City Oyster House when we visit Rehoboth Beach and as always we were not disappointed. We arrived for a very late dinner (9:45 pm) and the chef and kitchen was gracious enough to cook two more dinners for us. I ordered the stuffed Sea Bream with olives on a bed of ink spaghetti noodles and it was delicious. My wife order the Red Snapper which was delicious. We enjoyed a nice dinner with friends at the bar because we arrived after 9:30 pm their last seating. Henlopen City Oyster House is a no brainer for a well prepared seafood dinner. Bon Appetite.

“Amazing food and beer. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

This may be one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The food was amazing and more impressive was their beer list. Everything is reasonably priced and amazing. The owner was extremely friendly and talked beer with us at the bar for at least an hour. You can see his passion for his beer list and his food. This is a must visit if your in the area.
