Simple home cooking at its best… served in a casual, bistro-style dining room or on our outdoor, garden patio. A year-round local favorite, since 2009, offering home-made food, that’s always fresh. A lively mix of locals and tourists, gathering for dinner in the dining room, or drinks at the bar. Just a 10 minute walk from the ocean, on Rehoboth Avenue. We also have some free parking behind our restaurant and free parking (after 5pm) on the street behind our building. Late night bar entertainment includes: live music or Karaoke. Owners John & John are regularly on the premise, making sure you have a pleasant experience. “We strive to make Rigby’s a comfortable place, for all to feel welcome!” “We encourage you to have some good food and relax… after all, you’re at the beach!”

This place is awesome, great food, great service, reasonable prices. My wife has been here before, a couple of times, for coffee and key lime pie, so I took her here for valentine's dinner and ordered a key lime pie to take home. We opened with the flounder fingers and they even came with fries, both were delicious. I got the mini meatloaf stuffed with mozzarella and covered with some type of veal glazed gravy (wow) and the roasted brussel sprouts were fantastic, my wife got the shrimp scampi and told me the shrimp and pasta were done perfectly with great flavor. We will definitely be going back for the cream of crab soup and more of those fingers when it's back in season. The key lime pie is made in house and my wife says it's the best she's ever had, I don't eat it so I'll take her word for it.

One of our favorite places to go. We were aware it was lasagne night. So we ordered to go, it was delicious and potions were really large. One serving could feed 2!! Thanks Keith for taking care of us last Thursday. We will be back soon!!

The food here had no business being as good as it was. Coming to a sports bar & grill, you would usually expect food to range from pretty solid to outright bad, especially if you order a lower-than-average priced seafood items like crab cakes and seared ahi tuna, like we did. Much to my shockingly pleasant surprise, the food here was absolutely outstanding.

Living in DC, my standards for crab cakes is very high, and these were among the best I have ever had. No filler, huge portion, real and fresh lump crab, and broiled perfectly. I've been thinking about how surprised I was by how good they were since I left a few days ago, so obviousy that's a must-have here. I don't think I've ever seen this portion size or even close to it of actually authentic, all lump-crab crabcakes at $23. Absolute steal.

The ahi tuna was prepared exactly as it should be with a nicely seared outer layer and the perfect shade of pink inside, and tasted great with the glaze with the seaweed salad on the side. The brussels sprouts were also excellent, crispy and extremely tasty, and the side potatoes were also unbelievably good and unique, something more like a cross between hash browns and mashed potatoes.

I really don't write reviews for restuarants, but I got the e-mail from OpenTable asking me to write one and I was moved to give this restaurant props for their outstanding food. It's not a place you would necessarily find in Rehoboth unless you looked for it, but to anyone who happens to stumble upon this review while looking for places to eat, you cannot go wrong here and will get a delicious meal at an excellent value.

I've been coming down to the area for over 30 years. I had never been to this restaurant before I am I glad we now have. The food is fantastic especially for the price. They have their own take on some standard favorites. Definitely worth going to eat there. They've done an excellent job with the covid-19 standards. This is a definite will repeat restaurant for me now.

Very good meal with our family of 5. They are appropriately focused on safety with masks, washing hands and social distancing, operating at about 30% capacity.
Fried shrimp and quesadilla were great as was the bacon burger. The jambalaya was very good but for my 20 yo son, the portion was a little small. The salmon with brussel sprouts was also very good but a little heavy on the garlic.
We will be back!
