We had a very nice dinner at Jakes on Route 1. Food was good and service very quick. It's reasonably priced and is great for families to dine.

Went for a few days of R&R. Hotel is nice and clean with friendly staff. Not far from beach and boardwalk. Located right on main strip into city.

My husband ordered the scallops and he said they were good. I ordered the rockfish. It was horribly dry and they put too much spice mix, that obviously had thyme in it, on the fish...dried thyme is much too strong for rockfish and overwhelmed the flavor of the fish. The mashed potatoes had a strange aftertaste and the broccoli was... More

We had a very enjoyable late lunch/dinner at Jake's. My husband enjoyed a broiled flounder platter with two sides - mashed potatoes and broccoli. It was done very well and was tasty. I had the lobster roll. It had nice chunks of lobster and was tasty but needed a little something extra. We started with the soup which was excellent.... More

Chose the lobster roll with power slaw (kale, etc in the cole slaw). It was a great meal, for a relatively good price. We went midafternoon, so the place was nice and quite. I could easily envision the dinner crowd getting pretty thick. Friendly servers, clean restaurant, no real wait for our food to come out. Good location near the... More

The location in Rehoboth Beach was not open and the sign in the door window referred us to the other location on the highway. This was at 6pm on Tuesday, November 29th. So, it looked as if the town location was out of business.

Eating out with friends, and this was a great choice. Varied menu with lots of seafood dishes. The seafood bisque was magnificent! Lump crab was delicious, as was the filet mignon. In fact, the steak was perfectly cooked to the medium-rare I ordered. We'll be back when in the area!

The crab soup and scallops were excellent. We went with three kids; the staff was very attentive and brought food (and napkins) quickly.
