“Always very good!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2010

Summerhouse- Went here on Wed. night for their BBQ night. Overall…it was very, very good. I got the pick 2 out of 3 BBQ special and got the BBQ ribs and BBQ pulled pork along with creamed spinach and fries. The ribs had little to no fat on them and the pulled pork had a nice taste with a great dipping sauce. The creamed spinach was outstanding. A+

“Never disappointed with this place.”
Reviewed July 24, 2010

We go here every year for lunch. My wife and SIL always get the Goat Cheese salad. It is an excellent salad. I always have a taste. It's one of the best salads I've ever had. All of the ingrediants blend really well together. I got the Cuban sandwich which was really tasty.

“Great food...huge portions”
Reviewed June 25, 2010

If you are hungry, look no further. The food here is great and you get hugemongus portions. The service was great and the food was very good too.

Only issue...no beer on tap. What kind of Summerhouse is this?

“Still a nice bar, but a mediocre restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2010

The Summer House was once an iconic Rehoboth that served good burgers for half price on Monday nights. The owners of Big Fish Grill bought the place and are tried to make the place more upscale. Sadly, I think they’ve succeeded only in making the bar less appealing and adding a mediocre restaurant to a small town that has plenty of fabulous restaurants. Put the “new” Summer House in Bethany and it’s it at or near the top for fine dining, but in Rehoboth it’s just not worth going to when there are so many other – better – options. Summer House is still a good choice for a bar, but if you want a comparable restaurant that is much better – choose FINS (not to be confused with the awful Finbar) or go to Big Fish Grill – which is fabulous, but out of town.
