My husband and I spend most summer weekends in Rehoboth and were delighted to see the opening of Pig & Fish Restaurant.
On our first visit we were pleasantly surprised with happy hour food and drinks.

Consequently when my family came to visit from Florida we elected to return. Big Mistake! After being told the wait for a table would be fifteen minutes, we in fact waited well over an hour. After being seated, we realized that people dining at a neighboring table in the dining room ( who had finished their meal) were so loud (drunken screaming) that we could essentially hold no conversation whatsover. After waiting an hour for our food (we have now been there two hours) I asked the hostess to please check on our meal as the wait was unbearable, particularly since our neighboring diners (who should have been asked to leave!) were behaving so badly.

Shortly thereafter, the owner arrived at our table, announced that our meals were "prepared to order" and the delay was caused by our one appetizer and one wedge salad. Additional delay was caused by the "size of their kitchen which was no bigger than our table". She was extremely rude.I can honestly say, I have never been treated more rudely...ever.

Overall, acceptable food, horrible experience!

After seeing the Wash Post article- we ventured in on an early Sept evening for some apps and possibly dinner. At first we were shocked at the difference from every other restaurant in the beach area- it was warm, clean and did not destroy you with fried ir broiled food done fifty different ways. We were skeptical of the kids food citing the other trip advisor review, but the children and us loved everything. The entrees were priced very low in comparison to the "guys" down the street and the quality showed that there was a chef, and not some beach bum with a job for the summer. We look forward to the visiting again, mor in depth food wise next time.

A nice open clean restaurant in the heart of downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. We were pleasantly greeted by front staff and seated by the window.

Our server was polite and efficient, but delivered a kid's grilled cheese sandwich which was obviously overcooked. We asked for a replacement, which was nothing more than two pieces of broiled cheesetoast stuck together. The cheese was browned and it was not appropriate for a child's entree. It was nothing close to resembling a pan-grilled sandwich from mom's kitchen. Rehoboth is all about family dining, and we know if the kids are not happy, the parents cannot enjoy their meal either. To their credit, it was removed from our bill, but she left with only eating a few french fries (which were tasty).

The bluecrab flatbread pizza had a unique flavor, but was soggy.

I love to give new restaurants a chance, but this was not a good bang for our buck.
