Wonderful evening with good friendly service and excellent meals. Lobster Mac and cheese is a favorite! Expect a bit of a wait as they do not take reservations, but worth it!

We had a fantastic lunch at Henlopen City. Delicious food and very attentive and friendly staff. The scallop Po' Boy was perfect and the Gumbo was some of the best we've had outside of New Orleans. Will definitely return upon our next trip to Rehoboth.
