Finally made it to this Rehoboth Beach institution. Delicious bellinis, a lovely salad and scones. The four of us chose various egg-based dishes. I had the Eggs Benedict which didn't disappoint. Topped it off with a cappuccino. Looking forward to the dinner menu next season.

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
