This is a restaurant that brings back all those memories of times gone by. Grab a table on the front screened porch, no air conditioning but ceiling fans that do the trick of keeping you comfortable even on the hottest summer days. Whatever you order, far exceeds anything you can find in Rehoboth. The omelette is their speciality and that... More

The servers are very friendly, attentive and it is very clean. Your coffee cup is never empty. There is usually a long line waiting to get in because the food is so good. The wait is well worth it. Besides the motel this is the only place we eat.

This restaurant always gets wonderful reviews. I have eaten there 3 times, and felt compelled to write. The customer service has always been poor at best. It is almost like they know they are busy and don't seem to care. They are a cash business and you should be prepared for that before going in. No cards! The food has... More

I went there with my husband and his father and we all enjoyed it a lot. The bacon is thin and crispy. The pancakes are really tasty and their home fries are outstanding. Love it!!!

We have been going to the Royal Treat for breakfast for almost 20 years...never had a bad meal. Great service too! Worth the wait, if you have to....opens for breakfast @ 0800. Get in line sooner if you want the screened-in porch! You could go as a large group, but you would most likely need to wait. They do not... More

Went here specifically for the pancakes as I was told how amazing they are. And they are very good indeed. Better than IHOP for sure. They are not cookie cutter perfect shape, and that alone gives them personality. I ordered just 2 and that was plenty with a side of bacon. They are a bit skimpy on the amount of... More

I went to this restaurant with my mom when I was a kid. Now some years later, I was able to take my daughter to breakfast here and it hasn't changed a bit! Great atmosphere and even better food! People line the street to get a table. A great place to start family traditions.

Along with Funland, this place exudes a feeling of "Welcome to Rehoboth; we'd love what we do; please share". This is one of our go-to places for both breakfast and ice cream sundaes. The lines can be long, so we plan our visits early for breakfast and late for ice cream. The breakfasts are huge, cooked exactly to order. Whether... More

I finally got to the Royal Treat for my favorite pancake breakfast for this year. I need to make it a point to go more often. This is a breakfast restaurant by day and an ice cream shop by night. I like their ice cream but, my absolute favorite is their pancakes. You need to stop in and give them... More

I have been going to Rehoboth Beach for almost 40 years, and on almost every visit my favorite part is going to the Royal Treat and getting the Brownie Sundae. A warm brownie with chocolate ice cream and dark chocolate hot fudge on top. That combined with personal service makes for a special treat.
