We were four disappointed diners. We waited 90 minutes to have dinner at 8:45 PM. The "bouillabaisse" was tomato based and not fish broth based and thus should be sold as cioppino and not bouillabaisse. The crab cakes were small and the crab meat had...More

Had a wonderful meal with my wife before our gang arrived for vacation. Delicious seafood, the apps were delightful and the drinks were perfect. The energetic atmosphere, great food and service made for a very nice experience.

I took my wife and parents here for a dinner and it was wonderful. Not cheap but definitely a great meal. The best softshell crabs I have ever had!

We waited 30 minutes for a table at 6:15 on Monday night. On our first visit to Rehoboth I followed the good reviews on Trip Advisor and decided this might be a good choice for a seafood dinner. I had the bouillabaisse and my hubby...More
