The location in Rehoboth Beach was not open and the sign in the door window referred us to the other location on the highway. This was at 6pm on Tuesday, November 29th. So, it looked as if the town location was out of business.

Eating out with friends, and this was a great choice. Varied menu with lots of seafood dishes. The seafood bisque was magnificent! Lump crab was delicious, as was the filet mignon. In fact, the steak was perfectly cooked to the medium-rare I ordered. We'll be back when in the area!

The crab soup and scallops were excellent. We went with three kids; the staff was very attentive and brought food (and napkins) quickly.

So many restaurants to choose from in this little town, but we wanted seafood. Maybe not the best choice, but I cannot say anything was bad. It was just okay. Should have stayed in the bar area which seemed to have more atmosphere. The meal started off on the high note of the evening which was the Seafood bisque. Creamy... More

I had the Crab Imperial and thought it was very good. Other dishes in our group were also good - of not were the seafood combo platters [[~$30]. The 'power slaw' can be avoided. Sweet potato fries a good bet. Mussels and clam steamers both very good. We had great service. We also had a fair amount of drinks, which... More

We have loved going to Jake's every year we visit Rehoboth Beach. This year we were disappointed by one the menu changed and not for the better. We got no bread/rolls like we always used to. The service was good but just wasn't pleased with the selection of food that they offered just wasn't up to their normal stature.

I was surprised to read some of the reviews. We stopped after our return from the ferry and a day trip at Cape May. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his scallops. I had never had rockfish so decided to try it. It was very tasty. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. If I ever return to this area I would... More

This was my parents favorite place to go for years and wanted to take us to eat there. They have not been back in 4 years and we're excited. They were very disappointed. Food was bland, and overcooked. I ordered the coconut shrimp and they were overfried. My son's shark bites were undercooked. My mom and niece ordered salmon and... More

This was our 2nd visit. The hostess was the most surly "I'd reacher be anyplace but here" person I've ever seen in any restaurant EVER. The restaurant was not busy at all...but we had to tell her 2-3 times that our party of 8 was all here and ready to be seated. I don't think she said a word to... More
