I only wished that there was more room between tables. I was bumped multiple times unfortunately, which slightly spilled my drink. There was also no where to stand when entering the restaurant, so I felt bad for people by the door and bar. Overall, spectacular food and service.

First timer at this location. Made 6:30pm reservations on OpenTable and was seated immediately. Our server, Norris, was in training, but did a good job checking in with us and providing professional service.

About the restaurant
Shorebreak Lodge offers high quality fresh and seasonal menu items, hand crafted cocktails, an eclectic wine list, and exceptional service all in a comfortably chic and welcoming setting.

One of the elements that makes the Shorebreak menu unique is the option to order appetizer size or full size entrees. Ben, owner and creator of the cocktail menu, has been bartending in downtown Rehoboth since 2019 and has won several cocktail awards, most recently First Place at the War at the Shore. The cocktail program at Shorebreak presents carefully crafted cocktails based on classics with unique twists to challenge the guests with new experiences.

Shorebreak has a 12-seat bar, two dining rooms and a covered outdoor patio. Many seating options for a romantic date night, special celebrations, family gatherings and company dinners.

We are 133 steps to the Atlantic Ocean on Wilmington Ave Downtown Rehoboth Beach.

Winner of Traveler's Choice 2021 on Trip Advisor.

Excellent food and service. Unfortunately, I often seem to be seated next to very loud diners. I enjoyed the pianist, while I could hear him. Any chance 1776 could make a bit more space between tables?
