We had an absolutely first class meal. Two special appetizers, blistered shishito peppers with a honey drizzle, ceviche with home made chips that were still hot when they hit the table, entrees were equally successful. Staff were amazing

This was the second time we have dined at Shorebreak. Ever since our first visit we have been kicking ourselves about not finding this gem earlier. Our second experience did not disappoint. The service is attentive, helpful, and friendly. The owner also takes time to stop by and talk to all of the tables. The food is fantastic! We had the corn and crab chowder for the first course. It is light and flavorful. We also recommend the ceviche. For or main course, my wife had the house specialty Surf ‘n Turf and I had the Duck Breast. Both were awesome!
We highly recommend Shorebreak. In a town full of good restaurants, this is definitely one of the best!

We loved every part of our experience at Shorebreak Lodge on Thursday night. ! Starting with a warm welcome from owner Sean and Mike who made sure we had everything we could possibly want. Our High West old fashioned was perfect, the grilled octopus was fantastic, the rib eye and halibut were so delicious and all were perfectly paired with wonderful wines. Oh and the peanut butter mousse pie was incredible. We will definitely be back. Thank you for helping us celebrate 31 years of marriage!

Lovely restaurant in the heart of Rehoboth Beach. The food was great and the staff were friendly. We were seated with appropriate social distance. I had the seared scallops and my husband had the surf and turf. We would definitely eat those meals again. The owner stopped by our table to personally thank us for supporting his small business during this difficult time of covid.

Shorebreak is our favorite restaurant in Rehoboth and during Covid they have always taken extra precautions to serve the same amazing food safely. Just had a delicious dinner on Labor Day including a special halibut and shrimp ceviche, grilled octopus, and squid ink seafood pasta in an incredible saffron sauce accompanied by the best martinis ever.

We enjoyed dinner at the bar because we love bar-dining! Ceviche was the best I’ve ever had-halibut, shrimp & crab with homemade tortilla chips. Grilled octopus was a new treat. Service was warm and attentive. We’ll be back!

This was my first time visiting this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Be prepared to spend some money though because it is on the expensive side. The food was fantastic though. I did feel the kid's meals are priced too high. $10 for a bowl of macaroni with butter and some cheese is too expensive.

Great service and great wine selection.

Appetizers were amazing.i had the mushroom bruschetta(probably the best of all)and my wife had the coconut milk crab bisque

My dinner which was the duck was great. Blueberry demiglaze with Brussels and fingerlings was good

My wife had the octopus which while good, could of had the aioli on the side. The aioli took over the plate.

Would highly recommend though.

Shorebreak Lodge is a hidden gem near the boardwalk. The service and food are excellent and always consistent. All of the food is absolutely delicious...especially the cerviche, halibut, squid ink pasta, and the La Freda burger! The owner's, Kate and Sean take pride in their restaurant and always make a point of stopping by your table to make sure everything is up to their standards. During this unprecedented time, they have ensured that all of their customers feel safe.

Service and food were outstanding. The hostess, server, and manager all came by to check on us. Wine list and presentation were both on point, as well. We ordered deviled eggs, beet lettuce wraps, grilled octopus, scallops, duck, and a few other plates- Everything was great, but the duck was my favorite.

Enjoyed a delicious dinner from start to finish! Shared the beet salad and then my friend and I had the scallops and the short ribs/scallops. The owner explained the wines to us and our waitress, Holly, was attentive but not intrusive. They comped a piece of moist and yummy chocolate cake for my birthday which was perfect for this chocoholic! Will definitely return.

Excellent, will definitely go more often. Very courteous and knowledgable staff. We shared the mushroom bruschetta appetizer and it was fantastic, a nice crusty grilled bread, a mix of delicious wild mushrooms and a dollop of pesto. For our mains we got the shellfish and squid ink linguini, and the spicy shrimp.Both were outstanding, but the are not kidding when they call the shrimp spicy. They are sauteed with sliced fresh jalapeno and sliced cherry peppers and served over fried yucca. Spicy hot, but not stupid hot just for hear sake, very tasty.

Courteous and knowledgeable staff made the dining experience a real pleasure despite a not warm enough for me side dish. But that will not stop me from going again and recommending the place with enthusiasm. It’s a weird time in the restaurant business and in my opinion this place is coping far better than most. Go there. Enjoy the food and cocktails. You will not regret it.

Amazing experience!! From the food to the wait staff, everything was wonderful. We went for our anniversary dinner, and it was a memorable evening. For appetizers we had the deviled eggs and hummus. They were delicious, better than we’ve had ever. For dinner we had the scallops and shrimp and grits. Unbelievable, every bite was delectable. The meal was capped off with most unbelievable pies, Key lime and peanut butter. This was one of my top 5 restaurant experiences. Will definitely be going back.
