With current restrictions during Covid-19, they were very accommodating. We were seated at a booth far from others, very clean surroundings, and kind staff. They were also great with kids in the space, as we recognize it is an upscale eatery. The wine flight option was wonderful as well. The manger/owner checked on us twice and was very kind.

The food here is amazing, you wouldnt think that from the laid back atmosphere, but this is a hidden gem in rehoboth. Octopus is off the charts, charred perfectly. Halibut special, incredible. And my staple there I'd the duck, its awesome, no other way to put it. Shawn, the owner introduced me to some wines I havent had that were very nice.

Met up w friends for dinner. Food was very good - mussels, octopus, and scallops were entrees that those in the group had. Love that there is an “appetizer size” portion to choose in lieu of a large entree. Wine list has many options to choose from. Service was good, but our server apparently just assumed we would not want dessert, coffee or an after dinner drink because none were offered.

This is now Rehoboth’s finest restaurant, hands down. Kate and Sean have a new chef who is their best yet. We cannot say enough great things about the dining experience. A comfortable, casual atmosphere that’s perfect for a date The wine selection and the waitstaff are as good as the food, too

Michael was an excellent waiter. Very attentive, polite and anticipatory of our every need.
The owner, however, was very degrading and humiliating to the waitstaff. He was loudly reprimanding and made us most uncomfortable. For that reason, we will be reluctant to return.

This is one of our absolutely favorite restaurants in Rehoboth. Kate and Sean pay attention to every detail. The food and wine are incredible. They have the best happy hour at the beach. Dinner is also phenomenal. Our favorite is the day boat scallop dish.

Family get together with out of town folks. We had an exceptional dinner with mouth watering cuisine . My sister and I had the 5 course tasting meal with wine pairing . Our husbands had the octopus appetizer and steaks. All were uniquely prepared with a great combination of flavors , artistically presented. Sean visited our table and made sure were satisfied. Stephano, our waiter was very attentive and knowledgable about about out wine pairings and the whole menu. I can’t wait to come back and eat more short ribs and scallops. Bravo!!!

New Year’s price fix menu had promise but did not deliver on any level. It is a shame, as I’ve dined there twice prior and greatly enjoyed the food and service.

The waiter, who after forgetting drink orders, advised us that he isn’t usually a waiter but was only waiting because they were short staffed. Having worked previously in the restaurant business, this was forgivable.

The food however underwhelmed on every front. A salad with poached chicken which was so salty we couldn’t finish the plate. Entree steak was undercooked and mashed potatoes/asparagus which looked like they had been served off a steam table in a cafeteria. Wife’s seafood pasta looked like it had sat under a heat lamp for hours prior to serving. Dessert was the lone bright spot but at that point we were done.

With so many other fine dining options at the beach, I hope this isn’t a sign of decline for what was historically a great spot.

Went to Sunday brunch as a last minute decision. We were the only folks in the place, which was a shame because the food was fantastic. The shrimp and grits kept my wife smiling all the way home, and that was 100 miles. Very friendly staff and everything was perfectly prepared. We’ll definitely be back.

it was our first time at Shorebreak - The Thanksgiving Dinner was amazing. We had plenty to take home and it was delicious the following day.

Since, we live here year round we shall be back in the very near future and look forward to trying different things on the menu.

The excellent service stands out- they did a great job!
The atmosphere, food, and drinks were great. Duck, crab cakes, surf & turf, chicken special- all delicious. Also the apps- mussels, mushroom bruschetta, octopus all great- Brussels sprouts too pale and undercooked in my opinion- I like them with a nice char or at least some brown crispiness to them. Wine, blueberry mojita, and bullet old fashioned were wonderful. Finally the chocolate cake with vanilla filling was so good! Tasted like a fancy devil dog! Loved it!!

Food was great! But they’re so focused on their wine, and selling it by the ounce. No one in our party was interested in that, and the waiter seemed really disappointed.
