They finally opened on weekends at the beginning of this season--and I jumped at the chance at more Haut Cuisine. The downside was that the chef was not interested in substitutions--which makes it tough when you're allergic to gluten and dairy (not to mention broccoli)....More

Jazz weekend is a great experience in Rehoboth. Combining the best restaurant in Rehoboth and being able to sit outside in 70 degree weather for brunch at the Back Porch made our weekend. The brunch menu is all inclusive. It is not just eggs, although...More
