Diner Reviews
  • "This is a nice inexpensive high end diner not bad but nothing special"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "A friend and I recently tried Rigby's for dinner and were very disappointed. The restaurant was not busy. We initially order a drink from the bar and a water. After twenty minutes our bar beverages arrived, but no water. It was 'burger night' and we ordered from the special menu. We each ordered a salad, a burger, another drink from the bar and the water we did not receive. After an hour, our burgers appeared–no salad and no drinks. The burgers were ordered medium-well and well done. The burgers arrived RAW–sticky wet center. A neighboring table with young children also endured terrible service and dangerously undercooked burgers. We will not be returning to Rigby's. I urge you to do the same or dine at your own risk!"

  • "it took forever and food wasn't very good. seared tuna wasn't seared, it was over cooked. Soup tasted weird, and the server couldn't be bothered and it took 20+"

  • "Rigby's is one of our favorites places in Rehoboth Beach. The food is awesome. The staff is attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is comfortable for a dinner for two, a gathering of friends or a special family get-together."

  • "From the outside, Rigby's looks like just a bar but inside in a separate room from the bar is a small dining room and delicious food! We had pasta with crab meat and peppers and crabcakes on creamed corn. Both were seasoned and prepared to perfection. We will be back!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Many more choices than your usual pub-fare. Crab bisque was fantastic. Stuffed pork was very flavorful, but a little over-cooked, but not throughout, but it didn't take away from the taste. Would certainly go back to try a few other items on the menu. Very friendly and attentive staff. Very reasonable prices as well. The kids had the all-you-can-eat spaghetti and meatballs and went to town!!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "While Rigby's is a little off the beaten path and a near 30 minute walk from the boardwalk, it was worth the extra effort. They do not profess to be a spot for foodies but they do what they do very well. The shrimp and pork spring rolls and chicken quesadilla appetizers were very good. For dinner, we had stuffed pork loin and scallops, with a side of cheddar mash and french fries. Again, the food was well prepared and tasty. Service was very good and we enjoyed listening to a live singer who was playing in the bar next to the dining area. All in all, it was a satisfying meal that was also fun. That's a terrific combination!"

  • "Cute place with incredibly friendly bartender, who immediately welcomed us and offered us bloody marys the moment we walked in (!free with brunch I might add!). However, after the drinks had come and gone, we ended up waiting with empty glasses and empty stomachs for over 30 minutes after we ordered. Then, by the time everything arrived (after we had to ask), it was very evident that it had been sitting under the heat for quite some time. My eggs bennie were just boiled eggs - no yolk came out when I cut into the egg (one of my biggest pet peeves), my friend's frittata was flavorless and dense - the eggs were charred on both sides. The descriptions of the menu were so lovely, and bartender so friendly, but execution just not there."

  • "My dinner - shrimp scampi - was tasty, but the portion was tiny. Five small- to medium-sized shrimp is not very many for a dinner portion. "

  • "We went to Rigby's for brunch on Easter Sunday. The wait staff was great and very accomodating, although we arrived about 15 minutes late which I thought was lovely. The entrees were wonderful and very fresh and they will give you a free bloody mary with your brunch. We got the bread basket for a starter and it was ok, but nothing to write home about. They provided butter and jam but the bread was a bit burnt. As I stated, ok, but the entrees made up for it. I requested a bloody mary that wan't too spicy and they made it perfectly. We would definitely return!"

  • "Sunday night had a vibrant group at the bar with acoustic singer playing great music! Thoroughly enjoyed pork chop night for only $8.75 and an order of flounder fingers! Happy Hour at the bard too! Fun and great food!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Do not let an unassuming facade keep you away!! This small place packs a punch. Service was friendly and attentive! Food was great--large portions made from fresh ingredients, not just processed food delivered by large truck suppliers. Menu has a variety of options, reminded me of a "farm to table" twist on comfort food. Prices are reasonable especially given the quality. Off season specials are a great deal."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Rigby's was always a decent neighborhood bar and restaurant, but now their food has taken a turn for the better. Go for the stuffed pork loin, which a very nice spinach and roasted pepper stuffing and a delish apple chutney and creamy mashed potatoes. Daily specials are comfort foods, and quite reasonably priced, as is the overall menu. Service is friendly and capable. With a bar next door, things can get noisy, especially on karaoke night. For a nice, inexpensive night out, Rigby's is a good choice and clearly popular with Rehoboth Beach regulars."

  • "WOW! I wasn't expecting such great quality food. I love their Sunday brunch, but haven't had dinner in a long time here. Early dinner so had some happy hour appetizers. Both the Flounder Fingers and Chicken wings were some of the best we have ever had....really really great! When our dinners came, we decided to go with the EVERY Sunday Pork Chop Special (2 x 7oz grilled boneless pork chops with potatoes and string beans! Once again, fantastically prepared with great flavors! I would definitely come back here again! I don't always think of Rigby's expect for Sunday Brunch and their burgers, but tonight's meal was perfect and very inexpensive too! Don't miss this if are around on a Sunday want an unpretentious place with great meals!"

  • "We went to Rigby's for an unfussy Thanksgiving lunch and were delighted by the wonderful food. Folks were friendly and service easy. Best of all was the corn pone which was delicious and I loved the apple pie crust. What a pleasant surprise to see corn pone in a Delaware restaurant. Based on this first experience we are planning another visit to try their regular menu. Rigby's is in the vicinity of the Hotel Rehoboth neighborhood where we were staying."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Great service, great food. The Bolognese "a signature dish" was great. We could have eaten it all day. The scallops were also very good. We will definitely be back. Very attentive wait staff."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "We had a wonderful brunch at Rigby's. Waiter was very accommodating and the food was served quicky and hot. We all enjoyed our dishes (esp. the frittata). We'll be back!"
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Always enjoy the Sunday Brunch at Rigby's! Service was just ok, they never seem to have enough staff and had to wait for order. Good crowd, so happy they are doing well!"
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "We had the whole dining room to ourselves! It was nice that the bar area was closed off from the dining area. We were seated right away, with a friendly server to take our drink order. He was only on the job for 2 days but he was super nice and attentive. I had the Spanish onion soup which is delicious and the Country Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes which is to die for! The portion though was quite large. The sausage gravy was the best I have ever had. My wife had the cream of crab soup which she enjoyed and the Shrimp Scampi which she said was the best she has had. It was full of olive oil and garlic and blended perfectly. We did not have any room at all for dessert but they all sounded good."
    Dined on 10/7/2013
  • "It's called Rigby's Bar and Grill and when we first walked in my wife and I noticed the bar first. The next room was the restaurant and its décor is pretty basic. No frills. At first, we were a bit worried, but we'd read some good reviews of the place, and we'd checked out the menu so we kept our hopes up. Glad we did because the food was very good. Our soups and salads and our entries (salmon for me, chicken for my wife) were very tasty. By no means is Rigby's a fancy place but it is a very good value and our waiter was very attentive. That's just what we were looking for on an off-season Saturday evening."
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "We went to Rigby's because of the positive reviews it received on Open Table and other sites. We were disappointed. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was great either. For the Flounder Piccata, the fish was fresh but the dish was boring. The Bolognese featured excellent pasta, but the meat and sauce were unexceptional. The Crab Cakes were fine, but not as good as can be had elsewhere. On the plus side, the prices were very reasonable -- definitely on the low side for Rehoboth. But we would rather have paid a few dollars more for a bit more exciting fare. Finally, we rated the noise level low because we were there on an off-season Friday night and the dining room was mostly empty. It might be much more noisy in-season."
    Dined on 9/20/2013
  • "My wife and went to Rigby's the last night of our vacation and were not disappointed. We each had the Bolognese and were very pleased. As others have said, it is easy to see why this is a signature dish. We arrived early for our 5:45 reservations but were able to be seated right away. Our server was excellent. All the people working there were friendly and pleasant. The bar is separate from the dining area which kept the noise level down. By the time we left there were a lot of people enjoying themselves in the bar. We are annual visitors to the Bethany/Rehobeth area and we will definitely go back to Rigby's."

  • "Few blocks back from the beach, but the food was awesome and prices were unbeatable. We could tell the food was fresh and made to order. The server was attentive and friendly. I had the crab cakes and they were over creamed corn... delicious combination. There were six of us at the table and everyone loved their meal. I tried the Bolognese that a friend ordered and it's no wonder why it's a signature dish. Parking is plentiful, their lot was full, but they had overflow free parking available. Will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/29/2013
  • "The place was near empty on a Wednesday evening, but then we ate early--however the lack of diners was a shame! This restaurant is very good, and one of the better ones in Rehoboth, while remaining moderately priced. Give this place a try and enjoy."
    Dined on 7/24/2013
  • "A little off the beaten track so not a lot of walk in business but what great service and food. Two of us got the $7 Wednesday Burger special. Big and juicy! The others ordered off of the regular menu. Great food and nothing seemed to be priced higher than $20. Not a huge menu but a little of everything. Highly recommended as a casual spot."
    Dined on 7/24/2013
  • "I really enjoyed my dinner it was fresh; you can tell it was made to order. The cream of crab soup was outstanding! Reasonably priced with a good wine list. The atmosphere is wonderful friendly. You can clearly see the owner's take pride in their establishment."
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "We took a chance and made a reservation as we had passed the restaurant many times but from the outside it is nothing to look at. I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were excellent. We will definitely eat here again!"
    Dined on 7/2/2013
  • "My wife and I found this spot if open table and decided to drop in for brunch before heading home from the beach. We were quite happy we did. The dining area was a little small, but felt cozy. Our food was very well prepared. My wife Belgian waffle was a big hit. We really enjoyed the attentive service and the waiter was covering a lot of tables, but we never wanted for anything. We had a very enjoyable meal (certainly not diminished by our perfectly done mimosas)."
    Dined on 6/30/2013
  • "We were accommodated per our special request such as round table and adequate lighting. Although the menu for the entrees were limited, the food was excellent. The service was excellent. We will be back there again."
    Dined on 6/29/2013
  • "The only explanation for having to wait over an hour to receive any food after being seated in uncrowded restaurant is a poorly managed kitchen. "The oven broke." Really??? Also, there was no host/hostess available to seat us even though it was a very slow night. The food was mediocre when it finally arrived. I'll choose one of the many other restaurants in the area next time."

  • "Awesome food; seated quickly; great service; overall good time; great choice for restaurant week!"
    Dined on 6/8/2013
  • "Though I've passed by many times, I had never tried Rigby's so decided to venture in one evening during restaurant week. It was early in the week and had rained so it was quiet, but I was left wondering why I hadn't been there sooner! The portion size was very large and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. It was clear the kitchen takes a lot of pride in their work as I enjoyed a well prepared stuffed pork cutlet that was absolutely delectable. The homemade Key Lime pie (actual Key Limes here!) was spectacular! The service was attentive without being overbearing, and I decided I would absolutely be back."

  • "Had dinner with a group of friends on a Sunday evening. Great entertainment in bar area and the Sunday Supper Special (pork chops, mashed potatoes and green beans) was fabulous!"

  • "Went for an early dinner on Friday night and had a great experience. Food was incredible and great value -- portions were huge. Service was outstanding -- waiter was very friendly and attentive without being pushy. Checked in the right number of times to make sure everything was okay, etc. This was truly a gem to our vacation weekend and will be back the next time we're in town! Can't recommend enough."

  • "Had nice brunch here with my sister. They have a fun twist on a grilled cheese sandwich that pairs well with the recommended addition of the roasted tomato & red pepper soup. Updated comfort food! A super nice touch is the included mimosa or bloody mary!"
    Dined on 9/16/2012
  • "Website was sketchy, but menu looked intriguing. The chef has done a fantastic job in developing and executing a very tasteful menu. The four of us were very pleased with every course and the waiter was timely and attentive while knowledgable and kind. Dinner was a pleasure and we will certainly recommend Rigby's to our friends and family. Must go in Rehoboth Beach!"
