Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first time at this new Rehoboth spot. Based on the reviews I was unsure what type of experience we would have but my fears turned out to be unfounded. The food was excellent as was the service. Previous reviewers mentioned and I agree, ask to be seated in the main dining area not off to the side of the bar. While they have rearranged the area to make it feel less crowded and more private it still feels a bit like being shunted off to the kids' table."

  • "They don't have a website yet so we couldn't review the menu ahead of time. Great food selection and updated versions of classic cocktails. Small space. Give a good hour and a half to get through the meal. The rabbit was outstanding. My friend said the salmon was the best he ever tasted. Nicest rib eye steak I've ever seen and cooked to perfection. Service was outstanding. We were a party of 7. One meal did not come out with the rest of the food. The wait was about 5 minutes but they apologized profusely and took the meal of our ticket. A true gem hidden in Rehoboth Beach. If you want to do a special dinner while on vacation, this is the place to go. Note: Bar area is small and tightly sits about 10 people at max."

  • "This place has a lot of personality! Cute restaurant in Rehobeth with great service and ecclectic menu. If you're a very picky eater, I'd steer clear, but otherwise it's a must-try. The pastry chef made us a delicious cake to order (ordered in advance) for a birthday celebration and that was a nice option."

  • "Fantastic! We went there with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner from start to finish. The Rib-eye and all of it's special preparations is to die for. The Duck breast was the best I've every had. The Spare Rib was very good (VERY large) The Deserts were Awesome. And the wine list had some real gems tucked in it that the owner steered us too. - My only disappointment was no espresso to go along with desert. We will dine here each time we go to Rehoboth."

  • "The food was incredible, and we will go back soon for sure! Our drink service was very slow, so the bartender came over to take our order. Food was well paced. Dessert was to die for. Two-top tables are close together, so it is not the best place for a quiet romantic evening."

  • "Bramble and Brine is a very pretty restaurant and rather elegant and very pricey for "beachy" Rehobeth. Three of us ordered halibut which came out cold and and one had to be sent back because it was overcooked. and replaced with a seared salmon ordered rare but it was cold and raw in the middle. The short-rib which was highly recommended and described as "falling off the bone" was an enormous bone of fat- bordering on disgusting. It was subsequently replaced with a 1/2 chicken that was nice. The cake pop desert was nothing special. In the end the manager came to apologize and took off at least half the bill including our drinks- a gesture that this restaurant wants to build a clientele in-spite of a kitchen that needs to improve."

  • "Me and my fiance made reservations at this little gem a few weeks in advanced. We have been many many places and eaten many different types of food, but this definitely is one of the best places we have been to. The Honey Roasted Duck and the Rib eye were Phenomenal!! And portions were NOT tiny in the slightest, I could barely breath by the time i left! Cocktail wise, you must try the Basil Smash. SO smooth and well balanced, flavors for all dishes were perfect! The atmosphere was very true to the pre prohibition era, separate seating, but in close enough proximity that it creates a very open and communal atmosphere that is fun and suave. Service was wonderful, very attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu and dishes. Amazing."

  • "First time here and staff sat us in a narrow side room with a wine rack on one wall. Every time someone had to slide across our seats they had to say "excuse me". It doesn't make sense to have a large piece hanging near the patrons. When we got there, I saw a table for 4 in the main room available and mentioned it, but was told that it was reserved. I reserved a table as well; that was bad business not to give us that table. This side room is an "add on" and being a decorator, does not feel warm and inviting, more like being in a long closet. Food was good, although the appetizers were small and expensive. However, we had delicious duck and fish. I would go back, but only to sit in the main room."

  • "For such a pricey restaurant, don't get the 4 seater in the back with a view of folks coming in and out of the bathroom and kitchen, or a wall. The very ungenerous portions with nothing additional on the plate but halibut or short ribs were very good. Far too little food for over $30. The desserts we're also tasty. It is a fussy place, much made of elegant, Victorian decor, many wait people bustling about, but we felt overpriced for the level of fare."

  • "Excellent dinner and service. Fairly new restaurant that we heard many good things about. Certainly lived up to our expectations. Veal chop was fantastic"

  • "We had the duck, halibut, beef short ribs, and a ribeye. All of it was fantastic, we all could stop ourselves from eating off each other's plates. Short ribs are especially recommended"

  • "By far the best meal I have had in the entire Rehoboth area. Creative menu, especially well prepared, good service. Everything from appetizers to entrees to dessert was excellent. I hardly ever post reviews and have gone out of my way for this restaurant. I will be back."

  • "We had the rib eye steak it was worth the money. Although our waitress was very pleasant, the service was not satisfactory. When you are paying $35.00 for rib eye you expect a certain level of service, even at the beach."

  • "The best meal the four of us had in a very long time. By far the best restaurant in Rehoboth!"

  • "I was really looking forward to our dinner at Bramble & Brine, however I was very disappointed. I made reservations once I heard about Bramble & Brine. The restaurant left a phone message to confirm our dinner reservation. We called back, for some reason, they had trouble finding the reservation because our name was in small letters-really-at least they found it. The next day, they called to confirm our dinner reservation again! How many times are they going to do this? Once we arrived , they seated us immediately, unfortunately, it was right next to the kitchen and every time someone walked by, they bumped into our seats--tight quarters! The portions were small and they were out of one appetizer and two of the maybe six entree's."

  • "Nothing much went right the night my wife and I dined here. Served us warm Champgne to start, were out of at least 3 menu items, maybe more. My main course came out warm. Couldn't wait to leave. This Restaurant has potential. They need some SERIOUS Front End Management"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Caveat: short ribs entree is huge and enough to share but the duck entree was underwhelming and undercooked. Fuchsia puréed veggies are not for me. Tried something new but this restaurant is not my cup of tea."

  • "I almost never write reviews BUT this restaurant deserves major kudos. My sweetheart and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary here. The table had lovely rose petals across the middle. Our waitress, Emma was lovely- bright smile and very honest, comfortable, and informative about the menu. The scallops were amazing- would like a double order next time:) I had the halibut, which substantial with an awesome puree and starch partnership. My boyfriend enjoyed the rabbit dish. Our desserts were equally yummy- chocolate chip cake and cheese cake. We will be back in August for sure!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We have favorite restaurants at Rehoboth so it is a gamble to try something new. The locals probably know about this place and we have a new favorite. The halibut is a new entry and was perfectly cooked and presented. Our neighbors gushed over the duck and ribeye. I did have the ribeye appetizer and it was wonderful. And since the portions were not supersized we got to savor every bite and still want desert. I can't think of the last time I was remotely interested in dessert. For those with really small appetites, go straight to dessert. I am sure they are all worth the calories but my wife, who makes excellent cheesecakes, could not believe how wonderful hers was. I had the chocolate cake and I have never had anything like it"

  • "We had a thoroughly outstanding meal at this restaurant. It definitely lived up to it's already lofty reputation, despite being opened for less than a year. The food is inventive and impeccably prepared. Service is outstanding and the room is incredible. We started with artichokes and wild boar served on bone, followed by an inventive chowder, rabbit wrapped in prosciutto, duck, and two great desserts, including a a completely new take on a banana split. All in all, it was one of the best meals we have had in Rehoboth."

  • "Fantastic, delicious food served in a cozy room. The bar area is small, but comfortable, and the drinks are stellar. Fun menu and a comfortable place that has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant. Don't miss B&B while in Rehoboth Beach. It's a special place."

  • "We made late reservations and still had to wait for our table. Not bad but a bit annoying. This restaurant is very loud (always is). It detracts from the FANTASTIC food. Biggest complaint for the night was our server. She was pleasant enough but had a definite opinion about the veal on the menu and over shared that opinion MANY times - she objects to the process to "make" veal and therefore has a "moral" problem with eating it. She shared this with our daughter at least 3 times when our daughter expressed an interest in ordering the veal chop on the menu. Our daughter ordered it, loved it but felt "lectured" (as did we) by the server."

  • "Opening last October, I began to hear rumblings about this new restaurant...excellent from the start. I've finally been able to get to Rehoboth to try it for myself. All four of us had a wonderful experience starting with the well decorated, charming ambience, friendly, attentive service and divine food. I especially enjoyed the beautifully presented and tasteful duck. Others with me enjoyed their choices of a very generous sized veal chop and stuffed cabbage. Desserts were well worth the calories. Looking forward to returning before I leave the beach. Fabulous addition to Rehoboth."

    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The restaurant has received many very positive comments, so our expectations were high, but they were not entirely met. The "clam chowder" was a pleasant broth with small clams, but it didn't have much flavor impact. The loin of rabbit was cooked well, but the miniscule amount of sauce made the dish a bit spare. The pasta with fresh peas, etc. was okay, but angel hair pasta made the entire dish merely fair. Service was very good and attentive. In general, Blue Moon is still a better choice in the same price range."
