Good . A little bit noisy for our taste. Food was great, but hard to talk to each other.

Being new to the area our neighbors gave us the recommendation.
I took my wife for her Birthday and we we're both amazed with everything.
It was a perfect evening to finish off her Special Day.

Class Act!

Thank you.

After having made several attempts to reserve a table during the head of the season with our luck, I was able to get a table last night and there was not sorry it was worth the wait. Everything about this restaurant is superb. Highly recommend it

Always great place to eat, drink or be entertained. Went a few times recently. Twice for Comfort Thursday and last night for Filet and Wine. Steak was fine perfectly. Service outstanding. Had the banana pudding dessert. Try it....you'll love it!

Hospitality even out of season! Friday nite Surf and Turf special exceeded expectations! Started with the usual appetizers spicy cauliflower, and the huge fried mozzarella sticks…enough for 4 adult bears! Added the shrimp dim sum which were perfection…I could make a meal of a double order, delicate, tender, spicy melt in your mouth explosion of flavor. Steaks were generous cut filet mignon, fork tender! Paired with Cajun spice shrimp that were firm , chargrilled but not over cooked!
Attended the live cabaret show upstairs where we enjoyed after dinner drinks, coffee and amazing key lime tarts, chocolate peanut butter pie, and the only critique of the night, a dry chocolate cake slice. Dark rich icing but the cake was not appealing. Great service, even backed our reservation up 15 minutes as the traffic was heavy delaying our arrival.
Most enjoyable was the atmosphere of friends and family, unhurried but efficient service and an off season ambiance that assured an enjoyable relaxing evening. A memorable 65th birthday

Unexpectedly fantastic seafood pot pie. Lobster tail, shrimp and halibut in a light, flavorful sauce. (And I rarely eat anything with sauce but this was delicious.). Friendly wait staff and helpful service topped with a cinnamon bourbon drink to warm the evening. Just lovely!

Thursday is now the comfort food menu at The Pines and the new chef nails it. We started with appetizers of the fried brussels sprouts and the crab and artichoke dip and then for my entree I enjoyed the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and (because they were so good) I substituted the fried brussels sprouts for the green beans. I then paired it was a glass of the Bonanza house red table wine. Everything was delicious.

Brandon, our server, told us that it was his second day on the job, but we would have never known it. The service was impeccable.

Come here all the time and have praised it highly! Met friends for comfort night and tried some new dishes unbelievable! The pork dish for $19 was a steal and large enough for two. You can't go wrong at the Pines, it is thee place to eat, drink and socialize in Rehoboth.

Amazing service! Jess is great and had everything ordered with perfect timing and she remembered things we liked. They split an entree into 2 dishes as we ordered it as an app and I’ve never seen that done before and it was much appreciated. Food was delicious and def would recommend!

Filet was incredible. Mozzarella Sticks - you’d think why would I order those - were quite good while waiting for a table. Would not get the Butternut Squash Soup (just didn’t have enough flavor for me - would’ve liked more spice or some sweet.) nor would I order the chocolate cake (basic sheet cake, thin icing on top, no pizzazz)

Obvious big fans but for good reasons the surf and turf was better than any expensive steakhouse and the service and ambiance is the best in Rehoboth. We keep coming back again and again and so should you!

Three of us were dining in and one person had a disability and he cannot see very well. The restaurant manager as well as the bar that’s upstairs bartender did an awesome job checking in on us to make sure we are OK. I do recommend going back to this restaurant because of the outstanding work that they have done to make our restaurant experience quite pleasurable.

It was the first night of the fall menu so the wait time for food was a little longer than usual but the service was still very good.

Loved the menu choices. Some very healthy options for those who want, and some more decadence for those who want to indulge. Like the mozzarella sticks, peach cobbler, squash Primavera, and chocolate chip cookie sundae. All were delightful.

Steak night is a hit! The 8 ounce filet was well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Green beans were good and mashed potatoes could’ve been warmer. The house Cabernet was more than adequate. We were seated promptly and ordered immediately but the place was packed snd it took 35 minutes for the entree to arrive.

ATTITUDE!!! From the moment we arrived, the host expressed so much disdain that we almost left. Seriously. We were told upon entering "Sorry, we're only taking reservations!" When we pointed out that we HAD a reservation, we were told, "Well, I can only seat you over there" pointing to a very small table in the back. When we pointed out that there were other tables open, he REALLY copped attitude and told us in a very snotty tone that "those tables are taken." We offered to sit outside on the porch, where there tables available. He told us he couldn't do that because it was raining. We pointed out that we had just arrived and it had stopped raining, and, besides, the porch is covered and there were other diners out there.
Once seated, our waiter was flighty. Not rude, no attitude, but flighty. Several minutes after he took our order, he returned to tell me that the appetizer I had ordered was now sold out. He did not bring with him a menu so that I could select another option. so I asked for one.
The food was rather bland. It needed some spicing up in some way. Not heat, just flavor. My dish also came with a cold risotto. He did tell me that it was cold, but I assumed (silly me!) that that meant it would come prepared with perhaps a mango salsa or parsley or something to give it more flavor. But no, just cold risotto. That is rather difficult to eat, so I didn't.
