Shorebreak needs to figure something out related to noise from the bar and dining room. With both rooms in the same space noise can get loud from bar patrons especially during happy hour. Two sets of customers asked to move to the back room because of the noise from the bar patrons. The Manager was not willing to engage with these patrons, however in not doing so they have lost this patron from returning.

We stumbled on to Shorebreak Lodge on Open Table. Decor was delightful, Stefano was a statesman of service - marked our menu for all the dishes that were available gluten-free, made stellar wine recommendations. A very pleasant evening, we will definitely be back.

Outstanding friendly service in an attractive spot and a 'special occasion' menu that would please almost anyone. This is always a special place even on ordinary days. Our server Stephanie showed a cool head when someone dropped and broke a water glass, and made sure that the guest did not feel badly. She also took a food allergy very seriously and made excellent recommendations. We enjoyed our dinner so much that we talked about it again several days later. Everything almost is fresh and made to order.

The flavor and presentation of the dishes were fantastic. Seems the restaurant was understaffed, but the service was still conscientious if a little delayed. No points off for food or service. Hope to return.

We had a table for 2 in the front room last Saturday evening 7PM. The restaurant was very busy but the service was excellent as were our cocktails, appetizers & main courses. It could not have been better. Also, we were so impressed by how attentive the ownership was to all aspects of their operation while working very hard to make certain everyone had a wonderful dining experience. Outstanding, we highly recommend.

The food was excellent, especially the mussels and crab dip. There was an issue with our order where the kitchen somehow lost our ticket, but the manager and our waitress more than made up for the mistake with top notch customer service. I would definitely go back.

First time at Shorebreak Lodge and we sat outside. The restaurant is dog-friendly, so several parties had small dogs in the outside area. Our party had a variety of entrées: surf vegetables and sides are an a la carte addition. Service was very good. Bottom line: meals were generally very good, but pricey and not a great value. Obviously Shorebreak Lodge isn't for everyone; foodies will enjoy most of the offerings.

Late reservation for us as a couple in their late 60's . We were unable to sit inside in the front area which was kid free. We ate in the back area of the restaurant which our server said was a go to for families. It was relatively quiet except for 1 loud infant. Our food was excellent! A cold pureed green pea and crab soup was quite tasty. The Halibut was nice and the duck was cooked perfectly. We also shared delicious Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing for desert .Our server was very busy ( aren't they all these days?) but was pleasant and attentive.

Overall, the place was nice. A fun seaside atmosphere. Only downside was that the most expensive dish of the crab cakes ended up not tasting great for the $40+ charge it was. Other than that, it’s an adorable spot.

Everything at this place is great. Happy hour appetizers are wonderful. We had the mussels and the calamari delicious. The shrimp and grits is was My favorite dish on the menu as well as the crabcakes. We came back twice just so that we could sample more of the incredible food. The bartender Michelle is the most amazing person. She’s so friendly and makes you feel like you are part of the family. We will make this place a staple in our visits to Rehoboth

Shorebreak Lodge is very, very good! Despite apparently suffering from some of the same post-shutdown labor struggles & shortfalls that so many restaurants are this summer, the hostess & our busy waitress took very good care of us, the bar turned out 1st rate mixed drinks, and the food was just excellent! If the night we went represented a tough night (there was apparently some sort of crisis in the kitchen?), then it is a very strong restaurant, indeed, as the only minor quibble we might’ve had would’ve been around some slowness between drinks/courses. As it was, we had a delightful evening, and only remember our leisurely conversation and the delicious food! Kudos to the chef & his amazing (short-staffed) team!

it was a little noisy considering how small the place is. not sure if that was a particular group or just where we sat inside. service was great as was food I wish the interior looked a little fresher/newer like the bar seats looked worn out. we would have had dessert but it was all gone .would prefer to sit elsewhere if we returned.

We had a reservation but service was very, very slow. We had an outdoor table which was on the sidewalk. We were happy for the breeze but we were sitting under the harsh neon outdoor lights which also attracted a lot of bugs. When the meal finally arrived, it was good, but we just wanted to leave by then. We couldn’t enjoy our meal for these reasons.
