This was our second visit to Shorebreak Lodge. We had a much better experience the first time. Although the food was very good both times, service was not. We had an 8pm reservation and our server seemed in a hurry to get us in and out. He appeared impatient as we deliberated over our selections, and he was unpolished for an upscale restaurant such as this. I had only taken two sips of my cocktail before our salad course arrived. And we had just put our salad forks down when our dinners arrived. It was like speed dining! And our server didn't clear our salad plates before serving our dinners. I know it's hard to hire and keep good employees, especially during the off-season, but with some training, this server could be so much better! We would have stayed for dessert, but we could tell our server was ready to go, and we didn't want to be rushed any more than we already were!

My dinner at Shorebreak was exceptional! Shrimp and grits were the best my wife has ever had and unique preparation of my rockfish was equally good. Would recommend Shorebreak to anyone looking for a great meal.

Our dining experiences at Shorebreak have always been consistent and fabulous! Shorebreak has great food and a wonderful wine list! An added bonus on Friday’s is being able to listen to John Flynn! We brought 2 couples who have never been there with us tonight and they loved it. This truly is a hidden gem in Rehoboth!!!

Great food, but not if you’re in a hurry. Had a 7:45 reservation and didn’t get sat until 8:15. 30 mins is a bit excessive. Not to mention I was there to have dinner again to remedy the last experience I had that was terrible due to service. The food was a 10, the service prior to being sat was a 5.

2nd time to Shorebreak within a month. Both times had disappointing service. Food was great, but it took forever. So did the drinks. It took a good 15 minutes before the waiter took our drink order. Then it took nearly half an hour to get the drinks. Food came out pretty slow as well. Will give it another chance or maybe just avoid weekend nights. Restaurant needs to work on training the staff. Too many servers hang out in the corner of the bar when instead they should be checking the tables and the customers and delivering food when it’s ready.

Food was very nicely prepared and the owner was pleasant, informative and engaging. Waitstaff told us a Demi sec wine was “very dry” (not true) and was not as attentive as we expected given they were not terribly busy, even bringing the check before we were offered the choice of dessert which was included in our 3-course pre fixe meal. We’ll be going back, however. Value, food, atmosphere and Sean sealed that decision.

Menu was not too big but had a lot of variety. Prices were reasonable for what you got, although they were on the higher side. Like that some of the appetizers could be an appetizer or main entree. I would not recommend the pies, however. Portion was small for $10.

Have to admit that the restaurant name didn’t appeal to me but they were able to take a reservation for 9 of us and we went for it based on many good reviews - so glad we did!

It was our Inst time there. Service was excellent and feed was very tasty.

I would go lighter on the glaze for the steak. I would like to see rolls served instead of the garlic bread.

I would like to see some lighter broth soups as I have heart issues and GERD.

Onion Soup and chicken tortellini, etc.

Shorebreak Lodge was a pleasant surprise. The location is right off the boardwalk with food fit for foodies. The chef rivals some of the top chefs in Philly and NYC. The farm to table rings through in the freshness of food. Extensive list of wines and unique cocktails are a bonus.

This was our second meal at Shorebreak Lodge (we liked it so much the first time, we returned again). We even had the same waiter who was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and beer selections. We enjoyed our second visit as much as the first. A creative salad with grilled peaches as very tasty. My scallops were very good and my husband enjoyed his ahi. We finished off our meal with a chocolate lava cake w/ ice cream. We will definitely return again.

We had a very negative experience at this restaurant. Our dinner reservation was for 8:30 pm, we witnessed the hostess sit the 8:45 pm reservation before us and then proceeded to offer us a table in the back of the restaurant, that was not even ready. We politely declined and were told there was a 15 minute wait for another acceptable table. It was 8:34 pm when we approached the bar to wait for our table, and we did were not serviced at the bar. It was close to 9:30 pm when we sat down at our table, over 45 minutes waiting. To add insult to injury, we witnessed the hostess eating dinner and enjoying a glass of wine before we even ordered a drink from the waiter. Dining is an experience, not just a meal, and this was the worst experience we have ever had at a restaurant. In 5 years of using the OpenTable App this was the first time we had an issue at a restaurant. Needless to say we will never return.

My husbands steak came out undercooked. He had it sent back. It literally came back out in minutes and it went from bloody to well done and steaming. Microwave.... which they denied. We weren’t charged, which is fine. The waiter tried to explain that the grill is really hot. My husband is a GM at a DC steak house..... it doesn’t cook that fast. Tried it once but won’t be going back.
