    Creamed corn is the best I've had, oysters were amazing and the lobster roll was so good. Can't say enough good things about this spot. Between the food and the friendly staff.

    Stuffy atmosphere. Too busy to seat one person. Can't take oysters to go for 'health reasons'?

    Nice place. Good lobster roll and shrimp po boy, though the remoulade should have had some spicier. Great beer list.

    Great happy hour, but only til 5. Amy the bartender will take good care of you. Try the shrimp and the clams at HH... delish!

    Great selection of oysters, from East & West coast locations. All the food is great and the staff works hard to make sure you're happy.

    Eric's secret cocktail is better than the house punch! ;)

    Love this place. Best clams I've ever had! Lobster Mac and cheese was awesome too.

    Perfect post beach eats. Gorg interior & phenom service. Try the oyster sampler, old bay shrimp, lobster roll & a glass of Albariño or 1 of 50+ craft beers. Skip the lobster mac&cheese.

    Jess Seilheimer · August 21, 2014

    Everything I've eaten has been very good. Great service too. A little too small of a place, though.

    Hostess is bitchy with a smile.

    Seriously amazing happy hour (3-6pm) - you can't beat $7-$8 for 1/2 dozen oysters, 1/2 pound of shrimp, 1lb of clams, etc. Plus 2.50 domestic bottles!

    The seafood chowder is amazing! It's like a crab soup with tons of seafood.

    Good oysters. Incredibly slow getting a dozen out though. Maybe we shouldn't have ordered the MA oysters? We have been told twice they would be up shortly.

    Come hungry, get every course. Even their desserts are incredible.

    Steph Graves · March 28, 2014

    Be careful about giving your friends the pickled in cloves jalapeño from the awesome bloody mary.

    George Neurauter · January 1, 2014
  • Susan P.

    Do an oyster tasting, then have mac and cheese or a lobster roll.

    Susan Pomerantz · December 1, 2013

    Might be one of the best restaurants we've ever been in the US. The lobster rolls and the Hawaiian spearfish were just unbelievable!

    Fernando M · September 17, 2013
  • Michael V.

    Don't come here. If you do, it will make it that much harder for the rest of us to get a table.

    The po boys are awesome. Love the clams and ratatouille as well!

    Best happy hour in Rehoboth, but get here a little before 3 if you want a seat!

    Katy Jacobs · August 9, 2013

    Blue Points and crawfish!!

    Rich T · June 9, 2013

    The best, but get here early for Happy Hour, or prepare to eat oysters standing up.

    The lobster roll will blow your mind!!!!!

    Best Bloody Mary of all time? Possible. There's a pickle in it.

    May have taken over the top spot. Great raw bar.

    The lobster Reuben was sent down from heaven for all to enjoy!! Delicious!!!

    Red flag with the full craft brew kegs stored in the bathrooms. They have to be taken to where the tap lines are; I'm not cool with piss in my walk-in or keg box.

    Staff is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Atmosphere is casual and fun. Oyster house lived up to its name with the salty oysters I love. Yum!

    Primarily East coast oysters rule the raw bar and selections change daily. Grab a few dozen @ Happy Hour from 3-5. Great microbrews from local Dogfish Head & more. Lobster mac 'n cheese is glorious.
