We were looking for a restaurant to go to for dinner on New Year's Day, we rediscovered Shorebreak Lodge. I indicate rediscovered as we had been there in the past (about 4 or 5 years ago). We had a great time, food was fantastic, our waiter Alex was wonderful, and the bartender Michelle was topnotch. The ambience and music were simply amazing. We will definitely return to taste more from their menu, enjoy the friendliness of the staff and subtle yet delightful background music we experienced. We have a "new" place that we can recommend to family and friends. Oh, I would be re-missed to not mention that Sean introduced himself to us. Who is Sean? One of the owners, and we believe we met the other owner as she came out to greet us as as we were talking with Michelle and deciding on a place to enjoy our last night in Rehoboth Beach, DE. We are so glad that Shorebreak Lodge was again, a great choice. Keep up the fantastic work Shorebreak Lodge!!

Everything was perfect. We had the same young man wait on our table as we had the previous two times. He's so friendly and does an outstanding job.

Christmas Eve dinner was an A+! Promptly seated and greeted by our server who took our drink order and advised us of the specials. The course interval was nicely spaced out and we were checked on repeatedly before and after their arrival despite the restaurant filling up. The black squid ink linguini was fabulous, as was the fresh fish of the day (halibut). A solid dining experience. If I had to knock anything, the chairs could be more comfortable, but I hardly noticed, as we were thoroughly enjoying our dining expereince.

Great night out with friends and we had exceptional service (Alexis) who was so attentive.
Everyone was beyond pleased with what they ordered and it was a terrific night out.
As two guests had never been to Shorebreak Lodge, they became fans that night.
They are doing something very right.

The restaurant was nice and clean though a little noisy. The hostess offered a quieter table in the back. Much appreciated!
Their menu consisted of a pre fixe three course meal so making a selection was easy.
The soup and salad were good ( we each chose one to get an idea of how each tasted).
Shaun, the owner stopped by several times to check on each table. The turkey, potatoes, sweet potato slices and cranberry sauce were delicious. The stuffing was a miss as it only had the flavor of stale bread. The desserts were small portions but were tasty. I preferred the chocolate cake as I didn’t like the maple flavor in the pumpkin pie.
Despite it being a holiday, the staff was very pleasant and cheerful. We look forward to coming back to try another meal.

Shorebreak needs to figure something out related to noise from the bar and dining room. With both rooms in the same space noise can get loud from bar patrons especially during happy hour. Two sets of customers asked to move to the back room because of the noise from the bar patrons. The Manager was not willing to engage with these patrons, however in not doing so they have lost this patron from returning.

We stumbled on to Shorebreak Lodge on Open Table. Decor was delightful, Stefano was a statesman of service - marked our menu for all the dishes that were available gluten-free, made stellar wine recommendations. A very pleasant evening, we will definitely be back.

Outstanding friendly service in an attractive spot and a 'special occasion' menu that would please almost anyone. This is always a special place even on ordinary days. Our server Stephanie showed a cool head when someone dropped and broke a water glass, and made sure that the guest did not feel badly. She also took a food allergy very seriously and made excellent recommendations. We enjoyed our dinner so much that we talked about it again several days later. Everything almost is fresh and made to order.

We had a table for 2 in the front room last Saturday evening 7PM. The restaurant was very busy but the service was excellent as were our cocktails, appetizers & main courses. It could not have been better. Also, we were so impressed by how attentive the ownership was to all aspects of their operation while working very hard to make certain everyone had a wonderful dining experience. Outstanding, we highly recommend.

The food was excellent, especially the mussels and crab dip. There was an issue with our order where the kitchen somehow lost our ticket, but the manager and our waitress more than made up for the mistake with top notch customer service. I would definitely go back.

First time at Shorebreak Lodge and we sat outside. The restaurant is dog-friendly, so several parties had small dogs in the outside area. Our party had a variety of entrées: surf vegetables and sides are an a la carte addition. Service was very good. Bottom line: meals were generally very good, but pricey and not a great value. Obviously Shorebreak Lodge isn't for everyone; foodies will enjoy most of the offerings.

Late reservation for us as a couple in their late 60's . We were unable to sit inside in the front area which was kid free. We ate in the back area of the restaurant which our server said was a go to for families. It was relatively quiet except for 1 loud infant. Our food was excellent! A cold pureed green pea and crab soup was quite tasty. The Halibut was nice and the duck was cooked perfectly. We also shared delicious Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing for desert .Our server was very busy ( aren't they all these days?) but was pleasant and attentive.

Overall, the place was nice. A fun seaside atmosphere. Only downside was that the most expensive dish of the crab cakes ended up not tasting great for the $40+ charge it was. Other than that, it’s an adorable spot.

Everything at this place is great. Happy hour appetizers are wonderful. We had the mussels and the calamari delicious. The shrimp and grits is was My favorite dish on the menu as well as the crabcakes. We came back twice just so that we could sample more of the incredible food. The bartender Michelle is the most amazing person. She’s so friendly and makes you feel like you are part of the family. We will make this place a staple in our visits to Rehoboth
