We visit Rehoboth beach often and Summer House is one of our regular stops. Make sure you are there on Mondays for burger day. They have the best freshly made salmon burgers.

The bar is friendly and efficient. If it’s not too crowded the bar tenders are a hoot to chat with. The bar food is good and a hoot value at happy hour. They’re a Rehoboth institution and keep earning it.

I have no involvement with the restaurant, but I have seen no evidence of dogs ever in the place. So I would say not dog friendly.
