Our dinner plans changed but got on the list for a large group (7) that turned out to be a perfect dining experience. The service was excellent and the food outstanding as was the bar. We started with a selection of raw oysters and calamari, followed by rockfish, soft shell crabs and scallops. Enjoyed their selection of wines and beers. Great seafood dining experience at the beach.

I had heard of lobster rolls for years but never got to truly experience one until I visited Henlopen City Oyster House. Their lobster roll is amazing! A massive amount of lobster with a light, unobtrusive dressing, it was everything I'd ever hoped for. The restaurant's fries are good as well, as is the oysters Rockefeller. I also recommend the Analog Mule cocktail.

This place is small, but one of the more popular bars in Rehoboth Beach. The kitchen puts out some great food at reasonable prices. The sea food is always fresh.

We had an urge for oysters on a sunny snowy day in Rehoboth. Perfect place, great sea food, excellent wine. Looking forward to coming back in the summer.

Great oysters, loved the bouillabaisse, wonderful wine list. Arrived at 8pm on a Saturday night and was seated immediately. But the restaurant was packed with a great pulse. We'd definitely return.
