Simple home cooking at its best… served in a casual, bistro-style dining room or on our outdoor, garden patio. A year-round local favorite, since 2009, offering home-made food, that’s always fresh. A lively mix of locals and tourists, gathering for dinner in the dining room, or drinks at the bar. Just a 10 minute walk from the ocean, on Rehoboth Avenue. We also have some free parking behind our restaurant and free parking (after 5pm) on the street behind our building. Late night bar entertainment includes: live music or Karaoke with a late night menu available after 9pm. Owners John & John are regularly on the premise, making sure you have a pleasant experience. “We strive to make Rigby’s a comfortable place, for all to feel welcome!” “We encourage you to have some good food and relax… after all, you’re at the beach!”

    We were very disappointed with our first visit. Reading the reviews, we expected much better. We walked in and stood awkwardly looking for directions as to wait or seat ourselves and finally just sitting at a table. The server finally said from across the room that it was okay to sit there. The food was below average for the Rehoboth area. Nothing we ordered stood out as remarkable. It was more of a local restaurant where the draw and ambiance was everyone knew each other.

    Very good food. Good portions. Chicken Parm dinner was huge and tasted good. All four entrees came out hot and fresh. The place is clean. The bartender/waiter was friendly and attentive. Otherwise it’s good food and good service and good menu and great value and easy to park.

    I've eaten at Rigby's many times and always have enjoyed the experience. This time, however, it fell short. I don't know whether it was a matter of being busy and short staffed, but everything took forever... long time to get an order taken, long time to get the food, long time to get a bill. I had a rather mediocre chicken parm (it was over cooked, with burned sections and overcooked angel hair pasta. Overall, just plain disappointing. But, I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt, because they're the on the western end of Rehooth Avenue, which is a bit a food/cultural dessert AND I've always had good experiences until this one. So, I'll be back.

    We came for the Thanksgiving buffet, recommended by a local. Great value, and simple, yet very good, home cooked, traditional meal. Staff was friendly. Mostly locals, but we did not feel out of place. Not much to look at when you walk in, but don’t let that sway you. Just a good place to get a fairly priced meal. I would go back

    You are absolutely right, your table had a bad experience and we apologize. The Friday you dined was as busy as a holiday weekend, which we are thrilled to have in October... unfortunately, when there are 2 staff members who are out sick, to protect the rest of the staff and our customers, it puts a strain on handling a crowd that large. We hope your group will give us another try and we will show that we can return to the excellent customer service you are accustomed to.

    My wife and I had a great time. We ate outside in the back and came inside to watch the Karaoke singers. The wait staff was not only nice but several of them have great voices. My wife had an italian dish and I had flounder. Both were cooked perfectly. Finally, for what you get, the cost of items on the menu is very reasonable. Highly recommended if you want to go out and have some fun in a relaxed environment.

    We ate outside on their flower covered patio with some music piped in. Husband had a hearty portion of chicken Parmesan with a good homemade sauce, and I had the fried shrimp, appetizer and fried flounder sandwich. All of our food was delicious, and the host and server were so kind and helpful – they even brought me small containers of salt and pepper, because I love to have hard-boiled eggs on the beach and hadn’t brought any. Very thoughtful and friendly service.
