Wonderful meal. Delicious soft shell crabs, excellent scallops and salmon. Great service. Atmosphere is delightful. Treated to wonderful jazz on Friday. My tenth time there and it's always been great. Pricy but worth it.

Right in the Main Street in Rehoboth beach, this restaurant was a great find in an excellent location with good food. Service was a little slow, it is the busy season but the fish cake was excellent.

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
