Let me start this review by stating that my wife and I have eaten at all types of restaurants all over the world, so we are by no means novices at the sport of fine dining, or value for your money. Being Delaware natives, we...More

It's different than most restaurants on Rehoboth Avenue. The looks and the name are deceiving. It is an upscale restaurant (but wear casual clothes). You will see white tablecloths and candles on the tables. Service was very punctual but not overwhelming. The food is creative...More

We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The wines were excellent. The squash pancakes with a blueberry bacon sauce were a hit as an appetizer for the foursome. Each of us ordered a different dish from the expansive menu and each of us was...More

Back Porch may serve the only fresh ingredient, creatively prepared lunch in town. I chose the grilled eggplant topped with a quinoa, chick pea, and pignolia concoction. It was delicious and reasonably priced. I love Back Porch--great service, a choice between outside and inside dining,...More

Looks like a pub, food and service as good or better than any other restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. The four of us started off with Blue Star and Dogfish IPA 60 beers, and a Frogs Leap Sauvignon Blanc. Then we ordered four Cold Cucumber soups,...More

Unexpected menu, certainly not beach town fare. Sophisticated selections in a run down sort of setting. Friendly and attentive service.

A lovely "adult" evening at the beach. The food is excellent, the service knowledgeable and professional, and the quiet, live music (a jazz combo) makes it a perfect evening in Rehoboth . The scallops and fish were both superb and the wine was the correct...More

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
