A yearly tradition on our vacation to Rehoboth Beach. Great food. Good atmosphere. Always busy. Always-friendly staff. Expansive menu (for adults and kids, alike). If you have a large party, I suggest calling ahead.

We had a great dinner here. The seafood is very fresh and delicious. The only down side is a very long wait time.

My family and I have been coming here for years and this restaurant does not disappoint. Everything is fresh and delicious. We started off with the wedge salad, the arugula salad and the roasted red pepper lobster bisque. All of these dishes were great. The lettuce is fresh and crisp, the blue cheese gives it just the right amount of bite. The pecans and the shaved parmesan balance nicely with the spicy arugula. The red pepper adds a little bit of heat and spice to the lobster bisque. I ordered the Cashew Crusted Tilapia in a coconut sauce with rice. It was tasty, but I could have used a little more coconut sauce as there was plenty of rice. One of my daughters ordered her usual Yellow Fin Tuna with mashed potatoes and enjoyed it. My other daughter ordered the Parmesan Salmon and was not disapointed. My husband ordered his usual Halibut with a Mango Salsa over mashed potatoes. He was happy with his dinner. The best part of our meal is the Peanut Butter Pie. It used to be a quarter of a pie that was about 5 inches tall with a chocolate graham cracker crust and a whipped peanut butter filling topped with shaved bits of chocolate. It is not as big as previous years, but it is still good. We love to order 2 and take them home and freeze them. They are so much better frozen! We always enjoy coming here and we will be back again next year.

Outstanding fresh seafood selection. Fresh fish is the best with multiple preparation options. Homemade desserts a must try. Great take out deli as well with many of the menu options available.

Only in Rehoboth for 2 nights so wanted great seafood. Restaurant was packed as expected and we agreed to sit outside, but overlooking the parking lot and being seated around large parties with screaming young children wasn't really a great atmosphere. We ordered cocktails and then an appetizer. The food came out and we still hadn't even gotten our drinks! I had to ask the waitress if our drinks were coming, and she then brought out our ice melted drinks that had obviously been sitting on the bar the whole time. When the entrees came out I had ordered fried shrimp but received grilled shrimp. So my daughter ended up eating her entree while I waited to get mine. The food was decent enough, but overall a very disappointing experience for the money.
