Great food, and awesome outside seating. They don't take reservations, but they will put your name on the waiting list and text you when the table is ready. Kids meals and regular food is very good, really liked the burger, calamari, and the brisket dish....Ramona drink is very tasty as well.More

Very nice large patio with a lot of seating. Also has fire pit to sit for a drink. Good service. The menu is not large but has a variety of options and everything was very good. We had Hush puppies, skirt steak and swordfish. Unique...combinations with jasmine coconut rice.More

The Blue Hen serves strong (and reasonably priced) drinks, and its menu is eclectic with all kinds of options. We had a little bit of everything—hush puppies, salad, fried chicken and a tamale! The best part is the staff; they’re all really nice, and that...makes all the difference.More

The bartender at a separate local restaurant recommended we come here for dinner and we were glad we did! We hadn’t eaten all day so we’re really hungry by the time we arrived when they opened at 4 pm. Since it wasn’t really dinner time...we decided just to sit at the bar. The bartender was awesome and not only made great drinks but made great food recommendations too! The strawberry fields drink, lobster toast, crab spaghetti, and fried chicken platter were all superb. We were quite impressed and will definitely be back!More

Absolutely delicious! Fun atmosphere, clean and excellent food. Service was really good checked on us a lot and was great with my kids. We had the biscuits (sooo good), beet salad (refreshing and delicious!) and calamari as appetizers. Everyone at the table (myself, husband and...3 kids) loved their entrees. Froze drink was really good.More

Walked in and sat at the bar for a few pre dinner drinks. Lovely, friendly bartenders and the Bitburger and Gruner was excellent. Sat on the patio for dinner -my lamb chop schnitzel was amazing and the wife loved her scallop dish. First class service...and overall a very pleasant evening. Recommended!More

In Rehoboth for the weekend with some good friends. Stopped for some drinks and appetizers. Nicole was our waitress and she was great! Very friendly and attentive , she made our experience fun ( maybe she should get a raise). We ordered the calamari and...raw oysters which were delicious. Next time we are in Rehoboth we will definitely stop back.More

Good food but terrible customer service. Manager was extremely rude when we tried to stay - there was a 90 min limit to outside tables and we were forced to leave before finishing our meal.

My wife and I ate outside on the patio on a cool Thursday evening in March to celebrate our second vaccine and year’s abstinence from restaurant dining. They had the fire pit and the heaters burning so we were very comfortable. The food was excellent,...as was the service.I had the smoked fish chowder and the lamb chop schnitzel, each of which were delicious. The lamb chops had a seasoned breaded coating which was very flavorful and came with a generous helping of roasted sunchokes, arugula and horseradish germinate. My wife had the beet salad and the seared chalk stream trout. The trout tasted very much like salmon, but the wait staff assured us it was trout. We will definitely return.More

The menu is very affordable, and the staff is very personable. We have been there three times, and each time they have made our stay safe!
