Too bad they are closed for the winter! We live here and love to go. Food is great, service very good. We have taken family and friends who love it as well.

Our son recently visited Rehoboth, Beach and recommended Shorebreak Lodge for dinner. We took a short, fall vacation and were excited to eat here. We arrived at Happy Hour which included several choices that we liked such as the Brussel Sprouts, bacon and fig. Our cocktails were fab and the staff were very attentive.I had the Gin and Roses and... More

I am lucky to live in a place with such wonderful dining. Shorebreak Lodge just takes it to a new level. It is impossible for me to come here without ordering the burrata. It is always prepared with inventiveness and is so creamy and delicious. I also had the spicy shrimp and grilled broccolini. Just divine! Jill our server was... More

Shorebreak Lodge has a wonderful eclectic menu. It has become our favorite in Rehoboth Beach, a town with a lot of really good restaurants. It can be a bit noisy, because the bar is basically in the dining area. Ask for a table by the window. The happy hour is fun. The decor is casual and upbeat. The food is... More

It's hilarious to me which restaurants are "ahead" of Shorebreak in the TripAdvisor rankings. Possibly because their clientele don't do online reviews, which is fine with me -- better chances at grabbing a table! haha Legitimately the first place on my list to eat when I'm in town, fantastic meals are served every visit. Creative and well-executed food that elevates... More

We had the chance to celebrate my nieces engagement at Shorebreak. It started well with drinks and a toast and we were enjoying the excellent food. Crab cakes were wonderful and so was every other dish. You can't go wrong here! But once the food arrived from people who were not our waiter, things fell apart. We wanted some glasses... More

We came to this restaurant because of the reviews and it did not disappoint! The restaurant has beautiful, unique decor and comfortable seating. Our server was excellent (unfortunately I forgot her name) but she was so helpful and accommodating as we tried a few different appetizer sized meals. The scallops with the miso honey were to die for!! The shrimp... More

I've been to Shorebreak several times. It never disappoints. Jackie was our server. She was attentive, informative and fun. We shared several dishes. The Brie and naan is perfectly delicious. The shrimp and grits was different and delightful. The short rib was perfect. No bite was left behind.

133 steps to the Atlantic...Blurring the boundary between a night in with friends, and an evening on the town, coastal gastropub cuisine, eclectic wine, handcrafted cocktails, cool beers, laid back livin'. We are locally owned and operated establishment. We start with what we call our kitchens mantra from Julia Child; "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients." Our interpretation is too not get in the way of the food, let the ingredients speak for themselves. We mix this altogether with a nice selection of handcrafted cocktails (a must these days), craft brews, and wines, throw it all together in a relaxed beach cottage atmosphere, and try our best to provide you with the friendliest service we know how. There you have it: Shorebreak Lodge.
