Stopped in for a quick bite one afternoon and grabbed a seat at the bar. I had their popular lobster Reuben and it was fantastic! Must try it when you are in the area.

Whenever we visit our family in Bethany Beach, we always frequent either Matt's Fishcamp along Coastal Highway or its sister restaurant Northeast on Rte. 26. SoDel Concepts has winners with both restaurants; and you can count of both being busy with happy patrons throughout the year. I always order the fish and chips from Matt's. The fish they use are...

Terrific selection of fresh local fish prepared simply but deliciously. Good service. Beach simple basic decor, almost diner like, but perfect atmosphere. Can see kitchen at work. Decent, but not expansive, wine list, but enough. Really can't miss here. Had salmon with barbecue sauce -- really good!

We went for lunch and the food was outstanding. My friends tuna was beautiful and the crabcake was delish! We have always enjoyed Matt's, and the food somehow keeps getting better. Bravo!

Great unique specials, friendly service, fresh local seafood and big portions. Awesome view of the bay across the street. Perfect stop whether heading north or south. Their onion rings are killer.

Always nice to find a hidden gem. Small and unassuming from the road. It's everything you expect to find in a maine lobster house, but in my backyard. Fried clams and lobster rolls done right.

Besides their other location in Lewes, this is the ONLY place in Delaware to get these amazing and delicious clams. These are the best. The lobster rolls and crab cakes were amazing as well. Good, professional, knowledgeable staff. This is a must try.

On our annual trip to the ocean, we stopped at Matt's first. FRESH Tuna and Shark sandwiches with vegetables. Fantastic! The taste of fresh over what we have in the Midwest is remarkable. We saw 4 couples finish and tell the chef and wait staff, great experience and food. We did too.

My favorite place to eat in Bethany Beach! It is out of the town itself near the bridge heading to Rehoboth. Fresh food, well-prepared. Good cocktails and friendly service. We have at least a meal here every time we come down and have never been disappointed!
