Can't believe how I was treated by the owner of Rigby's. Correct me if I'm wrong but the customer is always right. Was served a burnt quesadilla so I sent it back. What did I get but another burnt quesadilla. Then the own proceeds to tell my I'm wrong. Doesn't even try to talk to me about the problem. Blames... More

Went for karaoke, second year in a row while vacationing in Bethany. John the owner/bartender is really sweet and welcoming--we had a great time again! Not too crowded, just a great fun time! We will be back!

We come to Rehoboth Beach/Lewes every fall for a week long getaway. Rigby's is one of our go to places to eat! There is a bar, and separate dining area. Some patio seating is available, but smoking is allowed there if you are sensitive to that. We have never been disappointed coming here! The food is wonderful and the staff... More

This is a very nice restaurant and bar in downtown Rehoboth. The restaurant is rather small but they do take reservations. We have been there twice with a group of friends and have been very pleased both times. They have free parking at the rear of the restaurant which is a nice perk in a town that can sometimes be...

We arrived in Rehoboth looking for a place to dine with our dog, and heard about Rigby's. We went to the patio with our large dog & they were extremely welcoming, brought her a nice water bowl with ice! We sat in a high top next to a wall fountain and some palms, very lovely. Service was prompt but not... More

Went for the prime rib special and felt you got your money's worth. Since not paying top dollar not getting top quality. Do plan to go back. The dining room is on the basic side. So was service. It seemed that the boys were having a good time at happy hour in the bar.

A little concerned when we walked in at 7PM and not too many people were seated in the dinning room, but boy was I wrong. Simple neat clean dinning area. Staff was very nice and attentive and the food was great. We had the Seared tuna, Swordfish, seafood combo and the short ribs, everyone was very happy. I had the... More

First impression upon entering Rigby's was not all that positive, looks very thrown together no real theme to the restaurant and all the artwork was very conflicting... the paper on the tables seemed very cafeteria like.... but the ambience and appearance is not what I go to a restaurant for. So we took our seats, and were very impressed with... More

I am very sorry about your experience at Rigby's. This is not what we expect from our bartenders. I know sometimes it gets busy, but the customer should be acknowledged. I will discuss this with my bartenders and hope, in the future, this does not happen again. Your comments are very important to the success of Rigby's and we do... More

Rigby’s Rehoboth, is a contemporary, American neighborhood bistro, serving the community since 2009. We strive to use only the finest and freshest ingredients available. We are passionate about our “farm to table” approach and serve this to you in a casual, lively and welcoming environment.

The goal for owners John and John was to open a place with a welcoming feel where both locals and visitors could get together, have good food and have some fun.

At Rigby’s we get a tremendous mix of age and gender, both locals and tourists alike. A genuine mix of what makes Rehoboth Beach so very special! We have been fortunate to have so many wonderful customers in season as well as out of season.

Besides our comfortable dining room, Rigby’s has a beautiful garden patio to enjoy as well. Dogs are welcome. Rigby’s Rehoboth works hard to provide an enjoyable experience with live entertainment, friendly staff, and good food & drinks that are sure to please.
