This is next to SALT CITY and almost as good. still these are the 2 best restaurants we have come across in 10 yrs visiting the area. Will not be disappointed. Halibut and soft shell crabs were great!

We arrived at 4 for happy hour and found the place already very busy. We couldn't find seating. The punch was very good and very strong. The Manhattens were very good; they gave us free drinks to leave our tables. As for food, the buffalo shrimp was very good, the lobster mac and cheese was delicious as was the calamari appetizer. It was very crispy and tender, not chewy at all! The Rockefeller oysters were awesome, so, so good! The crab cakes , gluten free and regular were also big hits. I also loved the Caprese salad. This place is excellent!

Consistently excellent. Love the oyster sampler, scallops, lobster roll, whatever you order, it's great. Our favorite Restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. Service is always good, staff is nice and efficient. Just one recommendation: please put some noise reducing tiles on the ceiling.

Waited 75 minutes for a table on a Wednesday night. Sides were very good but fried oysters were more breading than oyster.

Went here is July 2017 while on vacation. Great seafood. Fresh fish. Restaurant opens at 5PM . It doesn't take reservations which is inconvenient. We had to wait in a line outside. It is noisy inside which makes it difficult for talking, but the vibe is beach and fun and the food is excellent=worth the wait. Key Lime pie was delicious.
