I took my wife and parents here for a dinner and it was wonderful. Not cheap but definitely a great meal. The best softshell crabs I have ever had!

Service was prompt and courteous. Food was just ok. Nothing wrong with the food but I have had better Boulabaise and Oysters Rockefeller. I guess it is really hard to expect truly excellent food at a shore town restaurant.

A very pleasant and flavorful evening. Arrived at 5:30 to find an estimated 90 minute wait. Actually 60 minutes. 10 minutes after seated, drinks. Food arrived rapidly, a pleasure. Bouillabaisse was lovely. Soft shell crabs done just right. Even the pulled pork was nice. Many...More

We recently spent eight days in Rehoboth and had dinner twice at HCOH while there. While you can expect a wait during the season, it’s well worth it-hit the bar and have a drink while you wait (and expect it to be loud and lively)....More

The wait was not too long this time. Had delicious soft shell crabs with cole slaw and fresh creamed corn. Just terrific!
