Happened on Obie's our last day in Rehoboth. Great ribs and burgers. Love the location and view of the beach. Will definitely revisit this year.

Obies by The Sea is a great place to sit back and relax by the beach. Good food and drinks with friendly service.

Small but nice place to sit right on the boardwalk n eat/drink. Ocean noise and beach aroma make this a go to place. Sit outside or inside. Service has been good and food satisfactory. Kids, families and couple all welcome.

It's on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. The burgers are good and so is the service. If you want a quick lunch by the beach, this is the place to go. They have good beer and laid back atmosphere.

We dined at Obie's and really enjoyed the scenic views of the ocean and the people on the boardwalk. My dining companion drinks diet coke and I will admit - alot of diet coke. The glasses were small what most people would consider a water glass. Long story short we were charged for EVERY refill of the small glass. We... More

Stopped on our last day in Rehoboth, wish we would have stopped sooner. The ribs are really good and the salad with them was a nice surprise with garden greens, tomatoes, cukes, walnuts and dried cranberries. Hot dogs are huge and served on a fresh bakery roll. Service could have been a little more attentive. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely... More

Maybe we were lucky with our food choices but we got the shrimp salad sandwich and chile dog and both were very good. The rolls were toasted and good. We dine out a lot at both high end restaurants to pub fare. We both thought the food was better than average pub fare. Can't beat the location. Yes there were... More

My family decided on OBies after walking by and smelling "awesome burgers". We love dining outside on the boardwalk. The waitress was nice and helpful. The burgers were average. They did not live up to their smell. The fries were average. But unlike the many other outdoor meals we have experienced, the flies and gnats were something out of a... More

Great spot for an afternoon libation and a quick bite. The view of the beach from the top level are quite fantastic. We sat on the deck since we were coming off the beach and sand covered but prefer the view from up above. One of our guests ordered a daquiri from the deck bar (labor day) and was told... More

This is a great place to relax, eat a meal, and have a cocktail. We ate outside on the deck with a great view of all the activity on the boardwalk. The food was good and it's fun to chill and sit back with an adult beverage! We love to eat outside!
