One of our favorite local restaurants. Lots of locals go there year round. Go food, good value. I like their Salmon burgers, but they have many other choices. On Monday evenings, get there early, otherwise, you will have to wait. Nice people, fun atmosphere.

After reading reviews, we were so looking forward to our meal. However, it was horrible. Prime rib was tough with a plate of fat. Baked potato had burned bacon on top. French fries were cold but they brought new ones out. On the menu were potato pancakes, but instead they were like underdone hush puppies. A waste of $80+ for... More

This restaurant was recommended by one of our hotel staff so we decided to try it. We were very glad we did. The food was great and so was the service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Rehoboth Beach.

My friend and I went to the restaurant on our last night. He had the Short Ribs ($17) and I had the twin Pork Chops ($16). Each meal came with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and 1 side. We both had the roasted asparagas. Both meals were excellent. There was no need for a knife with the short ribs as they... More

We ate here twice for lunch, mostly because they offer a gluten-free menu. Service is a tad slow but the food is good and the staff is very friendly. Nice looking place with a HUGE bar.

My wife and I went to Summerhouse based on a recommendation from nearby hotel. We arrived later than 1:15 and were asked to wait for a table although there were five empty booths in the nearby vicinity. Food was only OK.

Always wanted to try this restaurant but required waiting. Got there in time this evening (6:00 PM) and were promptly seated. I ordered the shrimp and scallop linguine. It was very tasty but only had two scallops and four shrimp with the tails on. My wife ordered the crab cakes which were just okay; lacking in Old Bay. Our waitress... More
