Delicious fresh food. My crab cake was tasty, although the salad was pretty ordinary. Always enjoy the opportunity to sit outside. Reasonable prices in an area where meals can be pricey

I had the buffalo chicken philly sandwich which was really good. My husband enjoyed his sandwich also. Nice fast service

Great French dip and Reuben. Eat here for lunch at least once every time we are in Rehoboth. Great local place just off the avenue.

there are a number of dog friendly food places in the Rehoboth DE area and we tried a few. Arenas turned out to be a great find. friendly servers, good place for our 2 large dogs to relax while we ate, reasonably priced and the food was very good. Definite stop next year when we return in August.

We went because we could bring our dog and I love outdoor seating. It was "Mexican night," meaning specials on nachos, tacos, coronas. We ordered nachos and tacos, and food was nothing to write home about, but we knew we were going to a casual, inexpensive dinner so that was ok with us. Service was friendly, but our order did...

When traveling in the area, after a few hours roaming the Rehoboth Beach area, looking for a place where we could sit down and have a bite that was pet-friendly. Down a side alley was Arenas. Outdoor patio area accommodated us with our pet Shih Tzu right away. Typical fare, sandwiches and salads, quiet, and wait staff was great. Prices... More

For a quick average meal, it was okay. Nothing to write home about. Bloody Mary's too clam juicy tasting.

Wanting to get off the main drag at family dinner hour we found Arena's. It was crowded just enough to show us the place was popular but not so mobbed we'd have to wait long. Took a seat at the bar and were greeted by a sweet barmaid who was a pleasure to be around. She shared the story of... More

like to get caught up on the games or sporting events while eating? this is the place to go! for some reason many of the beach rentals got rid of cable and so you need to go watch a game and eat good food,this is the place to go!

We have been regulars at Arena's for years. It is a great place to grab a sandwich and brew. The portions are generous and for my money, they have the best crab cake at the beach. One can eat outside and bring your well behaved dog. It isn't fancy, just a good value and a great place to enjoy friends... More
