This fits the definition of "great neighborhood bar". We decided to go for Mini Night. They offer a wide variety of Mini subs at a great price. There were several staff working, some more attentive than others. They placed great music, offered great drinks and...More

We frequent High Stakes every weekend, since moving to Bethany Beach. We love the bartenders, food and atmosphere! On Friday nights there is a "one man band" that plays the same songs every Friday night! We deal with it because we really like the friendly...More

Hey 3boaters, I spoke to a couple people about the misunderstanding on a couple different social media platforms in hopes to fix the issue for the future. Rather than revisiting the occurrence again, I would simply ask for you, or anyone else for that matter,...More

After hearing all the rave reviews, we expected more. And salad had veggies on it that had frozen, thawed and were served mushy. First visit here. While I wouldn’t seek out going again, I’d go along if someone else asked me to join them, maybe.More

Hey Sometime, Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your cheesesteak. I can assure you the salad and veggies are not frozen. We go through a high amount of them where we don't need to do so. I would recommend trying us again and let...More

Since I last reviewed High Stakes Bar & Grill, they have remodeled combining what used to be two rooms each with their own bar into one large room with a horseshoe shaped bar with televisions around the ceiling. The ambiance is wonderful, service and food...More

We've been coming here for about a year now. Earlier this year, they did a major renovation and really opened the whole restaurant up. But the real attraction is an 11-7 Happy Hour, 7 days a week. Plus, I am always amazed how many people...More
