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!”

    I was so happy with my experience with the staff they made me feel like home. My Airforce sister and I was celebrating and we were saddened by the loss of her Airforce husband two years ago so holidays are hard missing our fellow soldier and life long friends . We all served together and the experience there may are burden lighter. Thank you especially to Ricky.

    Loved Rigby’s. We were greeted at the door. Taken to our table within 2 minutes, the buffet was great. Homemade options and plenty to choose from. Ally was our server and was awesome! Ricky was tending bar, and my drink was delicious. Will definitely go again!

    Very busy! Staff was short - but stepped up to ensure customers were taken care of. Our server was David - who is usually in the kitchen as head chef - he was excellent!! Very personable and professional. Food was very good at a reasonable price point - thank you! Always a fun experience at Rigby’s.

    Rugby’s has a large open seating area with tables and an adjacent bar. We sat in the open area. I had the flounder sandwich which was a nice sized fillet on a brioche bun with lettuce and tomato. It was served with French Fries which I requested to be crispy and they were. Very good. My wife had the Philadelphia steak sandwich, made to order. We both enjoyed our meal and would recommend Rlgby’s to anyone looking for a casual meal in Rehoboth.

    Overall great food and service. Only downside is the 'outdoor dining' is basically at the back and resembles a delivery yard. Not quite what we were hoping for. Would recommend booking an indoors table.

    I do want to say our waiter was lovely. Unfortunately that is the best I can say about Rigby's. We ordered an appetizer (cheese sticks) and 4 sandwiches. The appetizer came out a minute before our entrees. The waiter apologized for the timing, which was appreciated, but it still led to a rushed experience. 2 of the 4 sandwiches were badly burnt. The flounder sandwich looked like it was made well. All in all we will not be returning.

    My family and I came here for dinner for my daughter’s 13th birthday. They had balloons at the table when we arrived! The restaurant is very clean, everyone was so friendly, and the food was fantastic!! Everyone in the restaurant and bar joined in to sing happy birthday at the end of our meal. It was the best experience and we will definitely be back! I highly recommend this place!

    We are visiting the beach and made reservations at Rigbys ahead of time since we had never tried it before. The loudness inside is a little off putting since there wasn’t a band playing. I think the acoustics make it a very loud place. Our server Ricky was nice and entertaining. We enjoyed the service. The food was good but not anything that we would order again except the chicken parm was very tasty and a good portion size. Overall I think Ricky made the experience better than it would have been without him. Thanks Ricky!
