We actually found this place due to Dogfish head being too crowded. It was a good find. 19 oz Founder IPA cans for 5 bucks. The food was good as well. Fun atmosphere and the bartenders were great.More

Very good food! Wednesday special is 3-course prime rib. Secret ticket - get a large salad (baked goat cheese was my fav) and add a skewer of shrimp (perfectly done!) or a crab cake. The apple/pecan cobbler a la mode was VERY good!More

Immediately greeted upon walking in, drink orders taken right away, was given the soup of the day immediately along with menus! Soup of the day was great, beer was cold and lunch was delicious! Would definitely go back if we come back to Rehoboth.More
