Very good food, good friendly service, nice atmosphere. Drinks are a bit pricey, but it is Rehoboth Beach. Ceviche appetizer was delicious. Surf and turf was a fun change up with short rib and scallops, and the rissoto was excellent. Hubby got the charges octopus, perfectly seasoned a not a hint of rubbery.

I reluctantly write this review because I hope I can get a table in the future! The food and service at Shorebreak Lodge is Perennially Par Excellence -- Whenever we travel to Rehoboth, we always eat here. The food is consistently great and not your run of the mill menu for tourists. So many good choices that we often get several dishes in appetizer portions. We were a party of three and had the grilled octopus, shrimp and grits, bruschetta, and scallops. (no room for the kim chee mashed potatoes on this trip) Yum! Classic dishes ramped up with a local twist. The service is always friendly and accommodating (waiter Donte) and Kate, the manager on duty, was the sweetest. The beer is always cold and the wine choices make for great pairings. The live music is an added bonus. And, nice Art Deco ambience. Enjoy!

This was our first visit to Shorebreak Lodge, but certainly won't be our last. We liked that they encourage sharing of plates, and we did just that. I had the short-rib soup and an appetizer portion of scallops while my wife had the angus burger. We also shared a plate of brussel sprouts with bacon and figs. Everything was cooked to perfection. The soup was delightful, very hearty and flavorful. The scallops were tender with a slightly spicy sauce that finished with citrus. I am not a huge fan of sprouts, but they were tasty and I ate more than my share. The burger was a bit over cooked, but still full of flavor. Our server, Michael, was friendly and attentive, but not pushy. A delightful evening, which we hope to repeat soon.

We LOVE Shorebreak Lodge. Great Service and AMAZING food! The octopus appetizer was amazing and tasted more like lobster than octopus. I absolutely love their Surf & Turf with amazing scallops and delicious short ribs with to die for Parmesan risotto - and if you make the perfect bite of scallop, short rib and risotto in 1 bite you will have the most amazing food experience - all of the flavors together are amazing. We'll be back soon!

We had an 8pm reservation for four. You wouldn’t have guessed it was the off season or a late dinner - the place was lively when we arrived, and only became more lively as the evening continued. We picked a nice booth further from the festivities in the back dining room, but the room filled up shortly.
We started with a the soup of the day: a creamy tomato and mushroom bisque that everyone raved over. We continued with the burrata and the seasoned olives - both were appetizing but simple snacks for our party of four. I had the surf and turf of day boat scallops and short ribs over grits, which I enjoyed, although the short ribs may have been too salty for my liking. Our table had two orders of the steamed baby clams - another home run. My husband had a spicy shrimp dish; when they say spicy, they were not kidding around, the chili flavor overwhelmed the shrimp so he soaked them in the leftover broth from the steamed clams to make them palatable. My in-laws enjoyed their scallop entree and the beet salad - no complaints and they ate every bite. The service was impeccable, everything arrived in a manner where we felt neither rushed nor neglected, and our drinks were always full. We will definitely return.

I love Shorebreak Lodge b/c the food is great and the vibe is so chill, mellow and cool. I go there as much for the atmosphere as the food, frankly. I love the black and white surf photos and the white leather bar area. Our waitress, Joely, was warm and engaging with us, also telling us more about the restaurant and local events going on. It was a good time as usual. Wine was excellent and so was the dessert.

I’ve been going here for years and used to love this place but think it has suffered a bit in the past year. The front of the restaurant was so loud that we couldn’t hear the hostess. Once seated, it became clear the restaurant was extremely understaffed with only 2 servers. The beet salad was very low on beets, the Thai chicken wings (a former favorite) were much smaller than previously and the dessert was cloyingly sweet to the point we couldn’t finish it. That said, the duck entree and Pinot noir selection was delicious, bumping my rating up from 2 stars to 3.

We came to Rehoboth for our end-of-year getaway and decided to try Shorebreak Lodge one evening. It was a wonderful and delightful place to celebrate or just be with family/friends! Although we went on a weekend and the Tasting Menu is only served Mon-Fri, the owner, Kate, was super nice and accommodating with her chef. We did get to try the Tasting Menu and every person in our party was extremely delighted with the choice. We also tried the 5-course wine pairing, totally letting the restaurant prescribe our experience. We highly recommend this place if you're in town and let them choose for you. You'll not regret it!

Food was some of the best I've had in Delaware. The wine list had a nice selection and we found a very nice bottle. The second bottle must have been kept outside since it was sooo cold it tasted like grape juice. To make matters worse the waiter took 3 of 5 wine glasses while we still had half a bottle. I'm guessing they were trying to turn the table and were rushing us out the door.

Sat in front of bar which was little loud because party happening in back. Also a bit cool, very cold outside with drafts every time door opened. These are the only points that took away from a perfect evening and these are minor.
Food was excellent, chose multiple plates to share with the favorites being charred octopus which was firm and not at all chewy. Sprouts which were perfectly slightly charred and the burrata plate. Also enjoyed the smoked shrimp bisque, very rich and favorable. Food was very fresh and prepared quickly and perfectly. A couple of cocktails were also enjoyed, the egg nog excellent.

I thought the drinks were great at the bar and the waiter recommended a fabulous wine. Loved it. All the food was delicious however I thought the portions were a little small for the price paid. If they were a little bigger it would have made a big difference in my impression. Had a delicious poached pear with pumpkin gelato as an ending that was really great.

I would definitely go back.

We had a surprisingly nice time: good food, good service, fun music with a singing bartender and a drop-by from the earnest owner. The $25 tasting menu was excellent: homemade charcuterie, a bisque that was nice, a scallop dish and a beef entre, both excellent and an unmemorable dessert (but we're not dessert people). Our expectations were low (beach town in November)but we definitely would go back. Wine list was decent and prices were fair. They offered a pairing menu, but we passed.
