We found this place last summer and loved it and came back this summer. Still as great as we remembered. Crab cake- delicious. Seared tuna- great. Flat iron steak- tasty! Brussels sprouts- to die for. Service excellent. You will not go wrong here.
Thank you for the great review! So glad you enjoyed your visit once again! Hope to see you again!
We had a great family dinner here. The food was tasty and the service was really wonderful. Our waiter brought the kids' food first without our having to ask, which was much appreciated! We enjoyed the live music from the bar area, which we were able to hear but wasn't too loud for the kids or for our conversation.
Thank you for your review... Glad you had a great experience. Hope to see you again!
I have to think there was something wrong and they were having an off night. We went there because there was some good ratings, and the menu looked good. There seemed to be only 3 people running the whole place. It was hard to tell, but it looked like one bartender, one server, and one person in the kitchen. There were a few tables with people, and a few unbussed tables, that should have been a big red flag, but we didn't pay it enough heed. 45 minutes after we ordered, we hadn't gotten our appetizers, and the table that had already ordered before we sat down, was just getting their meals, and there were about 6-8 people, and they weren't even getting all of their meals (things were coming out piecemeal, and they didn't seem like things that should have taken very long). The server was apologizing for the delay, but it was evident that we would continue to have a wait for our apps, and then after that who knows when the mains would have come out. We decided to cut our losses, and that we would be better off going somewhere else and starting from scratch. Which is what we did. The server was very nice in that he said the drinks that we had been served would be on the house. And we did have a nice meal at an establishment down the street. I hope and assume this is not how they normally do business.
First we would like to apologize for the long wait and your unpleasant experience. And second, thank you for your very reasonable review! Although no excuse, we did have a person who called out in the kitchen and this put us in a bad position. With 2 large reservations coming in very close to one another, plus the food going out to the bar and patio, we got backed up in the kitchen. You are correct, we were having an off night. We only hope that you will give us another try!
Really good food for a small family run restaurant. Tons of house made sauces and dressings, the balsamic was to die for.
Thank you Tom! So happy you enjoyed your meal! Hope to see you again!
We loved it!!!! Food, service and karaoke were great!
Thanks for the review! We hope you will join us again soon!
Our first time visiting Rigby’s and LOVED everything about it! We met friends who drove in from Dover who were first timers, too. Every meal was throughly enjoyed - from the mushroom Swiss burgers to the Pasta Bolognese to the Shrimp and Grits. The deserts are homemade, too, and were superb! Our servers were delightful, friendly and we felt like family. Can’t wait to try more from the menu next summer when we return for vacation! And to top it off, it was reasonably priced. Truly one of the BEST meals and dinner experiences we have had in our more than 30 year visiting Rehoboth. Thank you!
What a great review... thank you so much! We certainly look forward to see you again next summer!
Quick, friendly service and good food! Glad to find it on opentable
Thank you Barbara... happy you enjoyed your meal and your server. We hope to see you back again!
Steak and tuna were excellent. Crab cake and fra diavolo were mediocre. Singer in the bar area was great!
Thank you for your review. All reviews good, bad and in between are always helpful for us to do better! Sorry you did not enjoy part of your meal, but we hope you will give us another try some day.
Excellence food, friendly service, great location, and very reasonable prices with very good size portions. First time there and I am DEFINITELY coming back. Very highly recommended. Most importantly, it was clean and organized. Great atmosphere. Thanks again guys. Neal
Thank you Neal... we really appreciate the review and hope to see you again soon!
Selected this place based on reviews. It was smaller than I expected and the menu was a little difficult to understand. Food was served promptly and was delicious. The server seemed overwhelmed although when we arrived it was not busy. We had a group and everyone enjoyed this.
I will return again when I am in the ares
Thank you for visiting Rigby's and for your review! Would love to have you back when you are in town!
Our family is vacationing in Rehoboth and we failed to make dinner plans for our first day. We had never been to Rigby’s, but came across it on Open Table and made a reservation on short notice. It was a fantastic find as we really enjoyed it. Everything - food, service and vibe - was excellent. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food, friendly service. Beef wellington was excellent.
sparsely decorated dining area. above average food. panko crusted flounder was outstanding.
went with 10 family members. there was a large gay presents at the bar which is a separate area.
A very good 'local' bar and restaurant. Food is good, the Owner and Chef took care of my vegan dietary request...
To be enjoyed when you go.
We were very pleased with our total experience -- the food was very well prepared, perfectly seasoned, abundantly portioned and served promptly. For the high quality of the food, the prices are very reasonable -- emphasis on the very! The atmosphere is not 5 star but neither are the prices. We will return and encourage friends to visit.
Thank you Kenny... we appreciate your review and look forward to seeing you again!
Always a good time whether at the bar or in the restaurant. Food is always good!
Wonderful, imaginative menu and great ambiance on Rehoboth Ave. Don’t miss it!
Consistent quality, hospitality, and value We love this place!
Super friendly folks. John and Ricky helpful, friendly and really nice. Thanks so much.
The server at the bar was friendly. Made an outstanding Bloody Mary- complimentary with Sunday Brunch.
I had the breakfast pizza, tasty and filling. Enough to take home the next day.
Casual, comfortable, and friendly. BEST grilled cheese ever, plenty of choices and everything is good!
Great food and wonderful service, will be returning
Our favorite brunch: always friendly, consistent quality.
Went with a party of six. Not very crowded but only one waitress who was not very enthusiastic. Some dishes were very good. Tater tot appetizer was a hit as was the tuna and flank steak. Crab dishes were dry and over cooked. Cucumber salad and key lime pie were very good.
The food was good, but not good enough to warrant the cost. Although the restaurant did not seem busy, our server was not as attentive as I would have expected with the amount of patrons there were.
We have been “locals” to the area for over 5 years, and JUST stumbled upon Rigby’s for the first time via Open Table last weekend. We can’t believe we have missed this place for so long!! Fantastic cheesesteak spring rolls, awesome Brussels, cucumber salad, and soup! Rigby’s crab cakes have now earned my #2 spot for Rehoboth/Dewey area!!
Attentive and enthusiastic service (I believe his name was Ricky).
We’ll be back!!
Small place. Great food but probably only for being looking for a bar atmosphere rather than casual dining.
Great Sunday Brunch Place. Food was good and it was a great value! My husband and I will go back again!
Tonight was absolutely amazing! Friends from PA came down and I brought them to Rigbys. The quesadilla was perfect! The Cesar Salad was perfect as well with the home made dressing! The shrimp macaroni salad was to die for! I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a fun night out!
Not one of the eight people in our party enjoyed their meal. The shrimp bisque was thick and paste-like. The Caesar salad was over dressed with store bought dressing, the seafood pasta had almost no seafood in a bad tomato sauce, the crab cake and burger were mediocre. The waiter was attentive but there are much better places to eat in the neighborhood.
Great food, good service. Our waiter Ricky D. was excellent
Food was excellent, service was very good.
Surpassingly good food for the cost. Service was good and enjoyed the low key atmosphere. Would go again.
Our waiter was just horrible - never listened to us. Tried to leave the table after only taking one person’s order. He seemed overwhelmed and distracted. He had three tables. Maybe he was new.
The food was delicious.
Amazing. Ricky is the most fun server. We stayed for karaoke and had a great time!
Loved it!!! Everyone was pleasant and professional.... Oor server Rick was awesome
This was a last minute decision and it was the best restaurant we stopped at over our 2 week stay in Bethany Beach. The service was great the food was awesome the prices are fantastic. I had the seafood flatbread pizza it was amazing 😊...sorry we didn’t find it sooner
Rigby's is the best value at the beach with good food and great service (ask for Jeffrey). It also offers a fantastic bar staff and fun late night crowd (for karaoke) on Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday brunch (with a complimentary Mimosa or bloody mary) is also a hit. All dishes are made to order, and I first knew it was something different when I saw the fresh herb garden out behind the restaurant.
45 minutes for 3 omelettes and 1 eggs Benedict seem a bit long. Another table dot served before us although they had arrived long after us.
But the food made it worth the wait. Very good
I discovered this restaurant thru opentable. At first, the place seemed to be very no-frills, but the food was amazing (I had the prime rib special) and very reasonably priced.
