I hate to give them any more praise because it's hard enough to get a table but the food and service are both perfect in every way!

We are both "foodies" and tried here per all the positive comments online. They are all true. Our food was so good and the service so friendly we came back the next night! Whether you want a fancy seafood experience or just something simple this is the place to go. Everything was just so fresh and flavorful. The grilled haddock... More

This was my second visit to the Oyster house and so far they are 2/2. Oysters were fresh an delectable. Varied selection of beers & wines with good recommendations from staff. This visit I tried the New England lobster roll which was decent, lots of lobster. Toasted roll it came on however was pretty weak...alittle burnt and rather plain. Enjoyable... More

The lobster mac and cheese was amazing; great oysters-both raw (we had the sampler and all of them were delicious and fresh) and fried (also delicious, cooked just right). Interesting drinks; excellent service by Taber.

My expectations were high walking into this place on a rainy blustery Saturday night. Parking is impossible in Rehoboth, so , for me to go there in a weekend I want it to be worth my time. I called to see if I could wear sneakers, as the 45 degree weather ruined my fashion statement of wearing tall stilettoes and... More

Our B&B host recommended we have dinner here. My husband loves oysters so he had lots to choose from. They didn't have any fresh crab yet (thank you for not using the frozen stuff!) so they suggested I substitute shrimp in the oyster dinner. I was AMAZED that they gave me 12 large shrimp (grilled to perfection!). Fabulous dinner for... More

We had a great meal, however, we were over whelmed by the size of the portions. We split an appetizer and each of us had an entree and we could not finish our entrees. On our next visit we plan on bypassing the appetizer and going straight to the entree.

We visited through a restaurant walk tour. This was our last stop. The chef came out and greeted us. He even displayed how he prepares his unique menu. He also will accommodate you food needs. If you are gluten free, vegetarian, vegan to name a few.

Travelling with our Nephew and Niece. Lineups start 20 minutes early to get into this restaurant for Lunch. Lunch service is discontinued after May 1. Opens for Dinner @ 5:00 PM. Everything is prepared fresh daily, and certainly illustrates the concept that good food takes time to prepare. All four meals were delivered at the same time, and all were... More

This restaurant is very busy even in the off season. Dined here with a party of 7. Only 1 table accommodates large parties so we were prepared to wait. The reason I am giving an average rating is due to customer service. The hostess was great as were our servers however the restaurant was informed that we were celebrating a... More
