My entree was lovely. Crab cake in sweet corn succotash. Really great taste. Side of sliced potatoes in skins unusual and very good. Had almost a glaze. Blood orange fizz excellent.

Limited menu. Ambiance just ok. Overall very nice experience.

When I made the reservation, I requested a booth in the bar area and that's where we sat. The service and food were very good. For appetizers I had the sweet corn & crab soup and my wife had the Burratta Mac N Cheese. Both were delicious. For dinner we had the Fried Chicken Nashville Bau Buns and a Crab Cake Sandwich. Both were delicious as well. The Red Sangria in a flask was very good. Looking forward to going back.

Thank you, too bad did not know about the International night on Tuesdays. Would love to return but depends on wife and her diet. The flask drink was outstanding! Reminded me of the drinks I used to make 40 years ago.

Thanks again, and hope to see you next Tuesday!

First time at the 'new' Fork & Flask (many times at Nage-both locations). Good value. Had the spicy chicken sandwiches (like sliders) - 7 on the platter -- great tasting and lotsa food. Great service on a crowded Friday night. We made the right choice. And you can too.

We found this gem while in Rehoboth on vacation. Food was delicious, with an eclectic menu. I had the Nashville hot chicken, my son had the Korean BBQ chicken, and my husband had the homemade spaghetti. All were extremely tasty. We each got drinks - the two standouts were the strawberry mule and the bourbon thyme (can’t recall the precise name). The flask concept is neat and ends up being a good deal on drink prices. We also enjoyed the deep fried olives as a starter. Summer provided excellent service and was a great help in navigating the menu for my son’s milk allergy.

The corn and crab soup was tasty, but had only a few small pieces of crab in it. We both ordered the halibut and found the same problem. It had no garnishment and no sauce. The presentation was so plain that my husband thought it was goat cheese at first. Halibut is very bland fish and needs a sauce. When I asked for a sauce they were very happy to accommodate and bring me a corn sauce used on their scallops which was very good. Portions were a good size.

I’all start off by saying, we’ll give them another chance to redeem themselves. Our service was great, Alexa was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. She followed up on us several times without being intrusive. Outstanding.
The kitchen needed help in its’ preparation of their items. I got the special, a fried platter, all items were way over cooked, leaving the items hard and all tasted the same 😕. Till next time.

First time at the Fork & Flask. The food was great. Had a couple of teenagers with us and they enjoyed the tuna rice bowl and pork belly ramen. We made reservations for 5:30 PM on a Saturday. There were only a few folks there at that time. By the time we finished (no latter that 6:30) they were getting filled up. Just guessing but I bet they were slammed by 7:30 or 8:00. My suggestion would be the earlier the better.

DO NOT GO IF YOU HAVE KIDS! Does not have a kid’s menu! The food was very mediocre and service extremely slow. Our breakfast was a 30 minute wait. The decor was appealing but stops there.

The outside is not much and it is easy to drive past the mall where this little gem exists. (If you hit the IHOP on Coastal Highway, you have just missed it). Inside, is a clean, clean cut restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere that reminded me of a spacious beach cottage. It serves multi-cultural American cuisine and some good drinks. I had a martini that was delicious and made my face numb. We had the cheese plate which was good (mustard was outstanding and really added to the cheese/cracker/apple). I had scallops and sweet corn ravioli while my daughter had the tuna bowl. All of the food was outstanding. But, the very best part was the creme brûlée . It was the very best I have ever had and I have eaten quite a few. The special bit was a disc of chocolate on the bottom of the creamy custard. So good!

Our server was fantastic. She was very attentive when needed and was non-intrusive when our group was enjoying getting caught up after not seeing each other for many years. The hostess was also great since she gave us our table for as long as we wanted since we were enjoying ourselves so much. And as always, the menu offers refreshingly different selections which are nicely prepared.

The bar service and happy hour was great. The buffalo cauliflower was delicious. The servie was very good in the dining room. We were the only ones seated there for most of the time we were there. We had the halibut which was beautifully presented and prepared, only is was at least day old fish or longer and did not taste fresh. That was a disappointment.

We went for the world food tour. The food was good although the Hot Nashville Chicken was almost to spicy to enjoy. On the same note the chicken cooked very well not dry at all. The catfish was very good also. I would have liked to have a salad of some sort included with the meal. We plan on attending the next world food tour on tues.
