Where were in town for a wedding. 4 adults and 4 kids were part of our party. Waitress only put on the adults orders, not the kids 2-12. When asked the waitress said we said nothing for the kids. Needless to say that didn't help....More

No hostess, no bussers. Took too long to be seated. Never had a square omelet before. Overall the food was average and the spuds burnt. One and done for us.

Cute place that had fantastic breakfast options. They had everything from bagels to omelets and huevos ranchos. We didn't take advantage but it appeared they had a full bar as well

The Penguin is a family owned and operated farm to table restaurant. We use the freshest, locally sourced ingredients available. Come in and enjoy our fabulous breakfast, delicious Beanie's double burger, specialty sandwiches and wraps, Fresh fish Tacos, seafood and salads and gluten free and vegetarian fare. In season, at 5:00 we move to our dinner menu, still in our casual, beach town setting. Chef Jeff utilizes only locally sourced fish and crab (he personally knows the fishermen we buy from), and most of the herbs used come from our chef's garden. We offer a children's menu as well, so your kids can be happy while you enjoy some of the finest food available in Delmarva. Open for dinner between Memorial Day and Labor Day and for prearranged parties. We are a landmark in the heart of Bethany Beach, about 1.5 Blocks from the beach. --
