Shrimpys

10. Shrimpy’s Bar & Grill

Where: 18585 Coastal Hwy, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

Cheseapeake and Maine

9. Chesapeake and Maine

Where: 316 Rehoboth Ave, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

Innovative, intimate, and just the right side of quirky, Chesapeake and Maine is a little gem in Rehoboth’s restaurant scene. From the moment you walk in, you’ll be struck by the distinctively nautical theme, which features everything from porthole windows to oyster shell chandeliers. The menu, meanwhile, is a veritable smorgasbord of sustainably sourced, faultlessly fresh seafood sourced from Maine and the Chesapeake Bay. While you’re there, don’t miss sampling a few of the treats from the draft-cocktail menu – it’s focus on Whole Leaf Gin, Compelling Gin, and Analog Vodka has managed to earn it a James Beard nomination.

Like crab? Then you’re going to love The Surfing Crab. Crab Dip, Snow Crabs, Crab Cakes, Steamed Blue Crabs, Cream of Crab… basically, if you can think of a way of cooking and serving a crab, you’ll find it here. If you’d rather opt for something a little less crabby, you’ll find plenty of choice, including Fish and Chips that rank as some of the best in town.

FIns Fish House and Raw Bar

4. FINS Fish House and Raw Bar

Where: 243 Rehoboth Ave, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

If you’re looking for a real bargain, head there between 4-9 pm on Thursday’s when all fried fish dinners come with a very enticing 50% off.

3. Fork and Flask

Where: 19730 Coastal Hwy, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

Fork and Flask’s charmingly quaint setting (a beach-bungalow type set-up designed to be the perfect little hideaway) is matched by a flawless approach to food that’s driven by a commitment to fresh, local ingredients and a made-from-scratch ethic. With its extensive “small plate” collection, it makes the ideal spot to relax with friends over good conversation, good wine, and truly great food.

Henlopen City Oyster House

All ingredients are fresh, locally sourced and used to their best advantage in standout dishes like Pan Seared Scallops served with pancetta roasted Brussel sprouts, maple-glazed acorn squash, and sage sabayon, Herb Grilled New York Steelhead Trout brushed with fresh herbs, and a New England Lobster Roll guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.

The Cultured Pearl

1. The Cultured Pearl Restaurant & Sushi Bar

Where: 301 Rehoboth Ave, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

A Rehoboth favorite ever since it first opened its doors in 1993, The Cultured Pearl Restaurant & Sushi Bar is without question THE place to go for sushi. Delicate, flagrantly fresh, and presented with flair, it’s everything sushi should be. Even if you’re not a sushi lover, it’s still worth the trip: expect a menu packed with everything from Asian inspired dishes like traditional Japanese teriyakis and spicy Thai curries to good ole American classics. The ambiance is just as inviting as the food, while the opportunity to watch the masterful knife skills on display at the sushi bar is an experience not to be missed.
