    Very disappointed with drinks. $14 margarita was size of juice glass completely filled with ice. Only took a few sips to finish. Feel ripped off. Lemonade was $3.75 and tasted like a powdered mix. Food was mediocre. Many better restaurants in Rehoboth Beach so we won’t be back.

    Service by Bethany was excellent. Good and drinks were superb. I’m glad they are open for lunch as many of the restaurants are closed during the day and during the week in the off-season. The southwest chicken salad and crab dip are excellent.

    Pretty disappointing experience. Have been before and liked it but last night was kind of a mess. Took over an hour for food to come out. Was given first drink and had to flag down after 45 minutes for the second drink. Ran out of all lagers by 10 and only had ipas to offer. Overall just think they were very unprepared for the New Years crowds. Sucks to pay that much money and have a poor experience. Host and waitress were very nice and personable. Dining area is beautiful and it’s in a great location.

    7:45 reservation, you could tell that there wasn’t enough servers & kitchen help. The salad came at 8:44. Good Caesar salad…. The entree I ordered was Rockfish…. Tasted fine but not even warm… the risotto was just horrible, I chose not to eat it… Brussels sprouts were good…. The 3rd course was bread pudding…. It was hard & crusty…. The ice cream helped. I realize it was NYE… but don’t think I’m going back… the price was about 200.00 with tip for a pretty awful dinner. The server was really nice

    The overall experience was excellent. Being in industry myself within multiple roles from management to my current position as a head chef for a catering company, I thought you all did the exceptional job with everything on New Year's Eve. The food was point, except for the saffron risotto. The risotto was not hot at all and did lack some flavor. Eating cold risotto is not very appetizing. We did alert our server, Peter, and he said he would let the chef know. We didn't hear anything more about it. First impressions are everything and it was our first time there. The other annoying thing is that if you have customer ordering multiple glasses of the same wine; I would have thought the bartender and server would have recommended buying a whole bottle, but that wasn't case for us. We will return at some point on slower night to have another experience.

    Our group of six adults had a 5:30pm reservation on New Year's Eve. We arrived early and were seated by 5:10pm. The restaurant was very busy. There was a nice prix fixe menu that was quite attractive. The food was well prepared and quite tasty although risotto was substituted for the roasted potatoes that appeared on the menu. The service was very slow at multiple points in the evening, The prices were a bit high for what we received. Overall, it was a good evening under the circumstances.

    It was New Years Eve, so that should give you a clue. Food was ok. I had the NY Strip which was a bit tough but cooked to order. Very salty along with string beans and fingerling potatoes. Loved Choco Torte. Enjoyable and roomy space for group of 14. Great waitress but clearly understaffing made her work a lot harder. Good temperament and deserved a great tip . Happy. New Year2023

    The food was all pretty good. I had the burger and it was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was very attentive and provided great service. We had a mishap with the crab dip starter because they couldn’t get the brandy to light. They had to take it back and bring a new one which took a while. Dinner came out a while later. My wife had the seafood risotto and toward the end found a hair in the food and then couldn’t eat it any more. Because she had ate most of it we chose not to say anything.

    It was Christmas Eve so we tend to give places the benefit of a doubt during those times. Service was slow starting due to a mix up but was fine after being corrected. We were compensated for the inconvenience which wasn't necessary but appreciated. We had a nice dining experience overall.

    Service was a little slow. They ran out of a special-prime rib but offered Filet at the same price. Some confusion with the bill because of the substitution. Only 2 things on dessert menu and they were pricey-$14. All in all, a pleasant experience.

    Couldn't believe they charged me $2 for ice for a Jemmeson and rocks... Twice!!! Update... Apparently it's traditional to add .5oz to a drink on the rocks, which is the reason for the upcharge. Doesn't seem sensible to include a line item on the check that just says "Ice $2" for an occasional drinker.

    Blackwall Hitch - RehobothResponded on January 1, 2023To clarify, If you order a whiskey soda, most establishments pour 1.5 ounces of whiskey over ice and then top it with club soda. If you order whiskey on the rocks, the pour is an additional half-ounce more, which is the reason for the upcharge. Some places will build it right into the cost of the drink; others mark it as a modification with an upcharge. Would you be willing to change your review to better reflect your experience? Seems the food, service, and ambiance are all marked 4 stars.

    To start with the good things, They were accommodating and moved us to a larger table for our party size which was nice. The food was average, definitely not worth it for the prices though. It was very warm in the restaurant or at least where we were sitting to the point where we had to keep going outside. I think the worst part of the experience was our server. You could tell she just didnt care, if we needed something we had to flag her down. Majority of the evening there were empty plates that needed to be taken away and refills on drinks needed. I am usually really understanding of this and appreciate servers and what they do, but the restaurant was not very busy and it was a birthday dinner so I wanted it to be a nice experience.

    Food was good but not great. Biggest issue was cleanliness. We were an early seating on an off night. But the restroom, vestibule and other areas were less than clean. The menu handout for the day’s specials looked as if it had been around for several days. Little things, yes. But they make an impression.

    I really like the food and atmosphere in this place. This is an "everyone chip in" and bust tables, greet customers etc. I had one issue that was addressed quickly. Our food got reprioritzed and we had a longer wait. The server took care of it without my asking and discounted my meal. they also honor their reservations Nd do not overlook.

    Great Thanksgiving buffet. Sadly mashed potatoes ran out and half of our party didn’t get them. But, the apology and offering of charging two adult meals as children's meals was very appreciated. Looking forward to coming back next year.

    The Thanksgiving Day Buffet line was a mess when we arrived for our reservation at 5 PM. Most of the pans for the side dishes were empty with no service staff in attendance on the buffet line. What was left was cold. The pans were replenished and some of the offerings (the green beans in particular) were delicious. The disorder of the buffet line definitely raised the anxiety of the customers. The service folk were overtaxed although they were pleasant and helped as they could. We five bused our own plates leaving them by a register. I definitely wished for more on every level. I would try a meal here on a less stressful day as the food was good. That would be my recommendation to anyone (including friends) who asked.

Dinner was also very reasonably priced and well worth it when you consider we didn’t didn’t spend hours preparing and cleaning up! We will definitely be back!
