It would be hard if you can't find a sandwich that excites you at Arena's. for the truly picky, you can build your own sandwich. Dogs are welcome and free dog treats are available.

What a wonderful treat - you can sit outside or inside depending on the weather. Excellent choices for everyone to pick from. Nachos are the best in Rehoboth Beach for sure.

Stopped in during Polar Bear Plunge weekend for a couple of beers with friends. Great selection and service! Didn't eat any food during this visit, but sandwiches have always have always been awesome in the past.

Looking for a light lunch while shopping with a group of friends, we spotted a table outside to enjoy a beautiful October afternoon. We ordered a variety of sandwiches and everyone was pleased. I especially enjoyed the shrimp tacos. Prices were reasonable, huge menu, portions generous, service was fast and friendly, overall, a positive experience.

Stopped in for a beer and snack. Sign said best nachos on beach. Beer was great. Nachos were abominable. Terrible. Cheese was not melted and laying on top. Skimpy on everything else. Chips stake. Bah! Bar atmosphere very unfriendly to newcomers ; sort of cliquish. Bah!

There are a number of Arena's in the LSD (Lower Slower Delaware) area - I have eaten at the one on Rehoboth Ave and on Route 1 a number of times - always good food and service. Good for breakfast if you on in a rush or a longer sit down for lunch or dinner. Good menu and beer selection.

We went to Rehoboth beach and we were looking for a pet friendly restaurant to get some lunch. We found Arena's and couldn't be happier. The outdoor patio is pet friendly, and the service was superb. The waitress welcomed our pets and even got then a bowl of water. The food was outstanding, I had a great bowl of chili... More

We ate lunch here on a warm Saturday in August. They sat us outside, which was fine by us. Seating was okay, but not particularly pleasant. There was a huge fan on one side of us, and a podium for the hostess on the other. A little cramped. The awning kept us in the cool shade. Not particularly scenic. Just... More
