One of my favorites in Downtown Rehoboth. It opens every day. Good Happy Hour, lunch and dinner. Love their raw bar as well. Their beet salad with scallops is awesome, and my friend's sakad with oysters was amazing too.

After a long drive, we got here right before the kitchen closed, but we didn't know it. The waiter was still attentive and accommodating, and the food was excellent. The smoked duck salad was unexpected and delightful, with great flavors.
