The choices were all over salted and I ordered the braised lamb shank. It was dry and looked to be leftover from the weekend. Terrible would not be going back. Should have sent it back but felt bad with all that’s going on with Covid these days. Just won’t be returning

Service was slow (may be due to the pandemic). We had to flag down a server. Food was also slow to come to the table but it was hot when served. Good neighborhood eatery.

We like the vibe of this place. Service was good. Not very busy but it was only 5:30 on a Friday eve.

The food was good but nothing great. The burger was tasty, but it was like a hand held burger. Not much larger than a slider and it was $17. That is outrageous!

The French onion soup was good, but again, not great. There was a small piece of bread on top with a tiny bit of cheese. I prefer my French Onion Soup with cheese on top!!

Total we had 2 soups, 1 app and a burger. Water to drink. with tip $60. Sorry, that way to much for this amount of food and no drinks.

I had the black pepper steak and it by far crushed anything I've ever had at local steak restruants. The cocktails were as well on point.

Good drinks, food a bit slow in coming out but everyone is having the same issues with a lack of service. Sweet potato fries were dead before they were served and should have never been plated. Server very pleasant.

Overall a pleasant and tasty dining experience. We were celebrating our 6th anniversary and wanted a quiet and intimate place and this was perfect. We were seated immediately after arriving and placed our orders quickly thereafter. There was no bread basket or pre dinner noshes to enjoy which was not necessarily a bad thing since you tend to fill up on them. There were apparently no ‘specials’ offered and not sure if they even do them. Started off with cocktails(husband had a tasty raspberry cosmo/I had a glass of wine). Appetizers came out quickly-I had the farm-to-table warm salad of roasted squash,brussel sprouts, pepitas drizzled with balsamic vinegar (really yummy!) and spouse had the short rib ‘cigars’ which were ribs wrapped in and egg roll sheets served on Gouda fondue(he wasn’t impressed overall but said it was good not great). For entrees I ordered the Fatto en Casa spaghetti (homemade flat noodles with tomatoes,asparagus in a delicious white wine herbed garlic sauce(REALLY GOOD) and spouse had the center cut fillet with potatoes and mushrooms(said it was good not great but he was comparing it to the 1776 steakhouse which imho isn’t a fair comparison). We decided to have desert but the chocolate torte was unavailable as well as vanilla ice cream-unexpected since it was a Tuesday but we had the creme brûlée and blueberry cobbler-good not great. Overall a decent dining experience and I like the limited and focused menu. My dishes were very tasty and had lots of flavor and my husband’s were good just not great in his opinion,but he can be a finicky and critical diner since he worked in restaurants before. I would def go back again and would recommend this place for it’s simple menu and tasty offerings.

The food was excellent. I had the blacken Mahi. The fish was cooked perfectly and the flavor was not overpowered by the seasoning. The sides, which are often throwaways were also well done and flavorful. Yhe restaurant is a bit loud, but everything else was top notch.

This is one of my regular restaurants in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and I always enjoy the food, drinks and conversation (I often sit at the bar). Yesterday my hubby and I had Thanksgiving dinner there and I want to tell you it was the best - hands down best - Thanksgiving dinner I have ever eaten in a restaurant (and that is a LOT of Thanksgivings). It was at least as good as my Grandmother and Mom used to make many, many years ago ... and I think even better! I was so impressed. Modern restaurant but a very traditional take on the Thanksgiving feast. Flavorful and moist turkey, great gravy, amazing stuffing, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce. It was all fab. Kudos to the chef, to our waitress Sarah, and to the amazing Shaun, the bartender extraordinaire who mixes the best cosmo and the best ever chocolate martini (for dessert).

Food was good, service was kind of slow. We had to ask about our drinks both times as they are taking a long time. Service person brought our check to us without us asking and even before we had gotten our dessert order.

My chicken tasted good but portion was pretty small and chicken looked like it had barely 4oz. My boyfriend couldn’t even eat his burger. Fries were burned to death and burger was very greasy. He took it home and gave it to our cat who couldn’t even eat it.
Now my boyfriend has problems with stomach ache as well.
Margarita was great and bartender was very nice and it’s not his fault, but probably won’t go back to this place.

The halibut was perfection and the steak was amazing and also cooked to perfection. The White Negroni was so refreshing as was the Rose. We also got the seasonal martini, Pumpkin Espresso Martini which was so good!! Can’t wait to go back and try more!!

Unfortunately this spot misses the mark on food I would recommend. Dishes were missing ingredients, plating was not appealing, and food flavor was not favorable on 3 of the items we ordered. Dead bugs in the windowsill and the temperature of the restaurant was very cold. Even after presenting to our server what was wrong no accommodations were made to the food or our bill. Very disappointing.
