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.

The food at Summer House is fresh and very good, with reasonable prices, an easy, casual atmosphere, and attentive, friendly waitstaff. That adds up to making it a place we go to often. It's popular for good reason! Location is a plus as well, situated...More
