I had the octopus It .was good but a little salty. The corn soup had little consistency. It would have been nice to have some crusty bread and evoo. I am a cook and baker and have been on TV cooking with my Mom.

Four of us had dinner. The food was good, but the place was noisy and the service was very slow. This may have been because the staff were short-handed, but we were not warned, so wondered what was going on. Water glasses were not filled,...and beer was served in the can with no glass, For a place that advertises itself as a "sophisticated gastropub," this is not what we were expecting.More

We only stopped by here during our weeklong stay as there were so many restaurants to try in the area. But the food and the service were excellent and would have gladly gone back had we stayed in the area longer. We tried a few...things from their happy hour and also the dinner menu. Dishes the we loved were the spicy octopus, chicken wings, scollop, ceviche and shellfish linguine. Our waitress was also lovely.More

Our party of majority POC was sent to the very back of the back part of the restaurant, despite a confirmed reservation and a NOT full restaurant. We had terrible service (we saw our waitress twice in the hour we were waiting for food -...once to place order, once to deliver drinks). We had made Shorebreak a regular over the many years since it's been in Rehoboth, but we will never be back again. I was disgusted with how we were treated.More

Every year, we make sure to enjoy at least 1 meal at The Shore Break when we visit Rehoboth. It is truly the best food in town. We have never had a bad meal, and it has truly been some of the best food we've...ever eaten. With members of my family being both vegetarians and meat eaters, there are plenty of wonderful options for everyone. Thanks for another amazing meal, Shore Break. We can't wait to see you again next year!More

Husband had the halibut for lunch - perfectly cooked and nicely seasoned. I had the crab cake with shoestring fries. Tasted like the ocean! One of the better crab cakes on my birthday 'crab cake tour' in Delaware/Maryland. Great service.

The food was good and services was good in the most part. My complaints relate to end of meal service and COVID safety. While my son and I are both vaccinated I reserved a table outside to be extra careful especially with the Delta variant....We were packed in like Sardines with less than 2 feet between each table. It seems greed for money was more important than safety. Then the real kicker came when the waiter kept me waiting 20 minutes to take my credit card. When I tried to hand it to the hostess she was very rude saying “no - give it to your server”. Then I asked her to get him and waited another 10 minutes. This restaurant is typical of a tourist restaurant that charges inflated prices because they can without really caring about their customers.More
