Always great food and service at Blue Hen. It has become a go-to favorite in Rehoboth Beach.

I had chosen Blue Hen to celebrate with my fiance and am so glad we went! Our server was very kind and knowledgeable, the food was amazing, and the ambiance was perfect! It's hard to believe the restaurant is already 2 years old, it looks brand new! After dinner we had walked around the boardwalk, but ended right back to enjoy some after dinner drinks at the outdoor fire pit. Both experiences were absolutely lovely

First time dining here during the off season Mothers Day weekend celebrating with the family. Menu is very nice with an impressive selection of choice beers you won't necessarily find on other menus. The cocktails were decent with some creative choices. The old sailor was refreshing. Wine selection is varied with choices of full/half bottle and glass. Nice cheese and charcuterie choices to build from. We also enjoyed some small plates; deviled eggs, and the fried green tomatoes topped with shrimp salad was simply awesome. I enjoyed the NY strip steak which was prepared to perfection and seasoned perfectly full flavored and delicious. I tasted the fried chicken which was also wonderful, but I had a bite of my Mothers cornmeal crusted Atlantic cod which was so delicious. Finished meal with some nitro coffee and shared dessert which was really nice..

My daughter and I dined together to celebrate Mother's Day before attending Clear Space Theater. We arrived early and sat at the bar and enjoyed a drink and delicious lobster toast and fried chicken slider. After being taken to our table, we decided to order salads, starters and biscuits rather than an entree. Everything was tasty and the staff was friendly and welcoming. I'll definitely be back.

Menu is a little limited but focusing on the items offered shows in the quality of the food presented. Never disappointed, food is always delicious. Relaxed atmosphere, great place to have a casual meal. We make sure to have at least one meal at the Blue Hen every time we are in the area.

A great place for a laid back dinner at the beach, or a special occasion. The food is consistently outstanding and the service is always prompt and warm, without being overbearing.

The meal and service were outstanding. It was quiet for us in the space, but it was a winter Monday night and probably during the summer season, noisier. Bar area and restaurant space were separate. Again, food and service outstanding.

First and foremost we went on St. Valentine's day. Many restaurants will gouge their clients on this night. Not the Blue Hen! The regular menu and some specials was just right. Great wine list. Filet mignon was one of best I had. Definitely will return.

This was our first time at Blue Hen and we chose it for Valentines Day dinner. I ordered the chicken and my wife ordered the rabbit. The chicken was not my Mon’s fried chicken but was very good none the less. It was very moist with a crunchy crush and the rabbit was perfectly prepared and delcious (I had a sample).
We ordered the oyster sampler for an appetizer and even though they only offered one kind of oyster, they were very good. Sometimes oysters are soaked in salt water and that can destroy the subtle flavors. All in all, a nice experience and we will return.

Very nicely designed and decorated room. Not too big, not noisy Limited menu. Best filet mignon I have every tasted. Large, cooked with a flavorful glaze on top. Wife thought the scallops were just right. Both of us had large portions and couldn't finish them (we're old). Will definitely go again.

Came for sunday brunch. Got the buttermilk pancakes and they were unbelieveable. Huge cakes with a lemon curd and topped with merrange. Wonderful and sinfully delicious. I got the salmon and bagel which came with 2 types fresh made cream cheese and poached and smoked salmon. More than i could do finish
Also added an order of scrapple. Two thick slices. We perfer ours extra crispy so we had them cook it longer and I love the flavors. Just like I got as a kid growing up on the shore. Will be back on my next trip back home.
