Catching up on entering old notes from November 2012. I was very impressed, the seafood was fresh, as one would expect with them being on the beach, and the beers were mainly local.regional, though they did have some Mikkellers which was surprising. They don’t have any DFH, but with the brewpub so close that have to differentiate themselves. That said, I still wish they had one of two on the menu as a show of supporting the home side, so to speak.
Intimate, comfortable seafood restaurant in the heart of Rehoboth Beach’s commercial district just don’t ask for and DFH. Since Dogfish head’s brewpub is literally a block away they focus on other breweries. With the exception of coors light on tap they serve mainly regional and European craft beer. They had 15-18 bombers on the menu and as well as 6-7 Mikkellers which I did not expect to see. They were also sticklers for proper glasswear so they gave me a snifter glass for my IPA and using the standard bar pint glasses for the water which shows they get it This is a place that serious about seafood especially oysters. I didn’t sample any but it looked very appealing. The vibe of the place is laid-back and friendly with a nice l shaped bar that dominates the visual from the entrance. if I’m back in the area I’ll definitely return.
Great beer bar and raw bar all in one! What more could you want? The oysters are always fresh and available in a large variety. There is a nice selection of fine craft brews. The food and decor comes highly recommended. Stop here if in the area...I actually go out of the way to visit Fins myself. I recently rode here by tandem bike from Cape May (via the ferry and state park bike trail) to be rewarded by the great seafood, shellfish, and craftbrews.
Awesome place with awesome happy hour specials (11:30 to 6pm on Fri and Sun!, with $3.50 Troegs drafts). Food was incredibly good, and the service was even better. The create a fish meal is the best. Beer selection is not huge but very good. I was hesitant to try this place because I got it confused with the crap shack a block down called Claws. Understandable. Definitely making it a point to stop here again next time.
My wife and I couldn’t decide which Rehoboth restaurant we would visit for our anniversary dinner. I was hoping Fins would be picked out of the hat, and thankfully it was. The restaurant smelled great when we first stepped foot in the front door. We knew we were going to get a great seafood meal here, and we weren’t disappointed. I had the 1.25lb lobster special and my wife had the crab cakes. Both were outstanding. The only thing I wasn’t real impressed with was the draft selections. They had a few Smuttynose offerings on, but I previously tasted them both. The others I wasn’t really interested in, especially Coors Light! Here you have all these great microbrewed beers, and then at the bottom of the list, Coors Light! Kinda blew my mind. What else blew my mind was the bottle list. Fins offers a huge selection of bottles, both local on the East Coast and a great deal of good imports. They put preference on U.S. beers, though, as they had quite a few more American beers than imports. I had the Nogne-O IPA and a Harpoon IIPA, which both were good. The service was very friendly and attentive. I don’t think my wife and I could have picked a better place to enjoy our anniversary dinner. When we’re back in town, we’ll definitely be considering Fins for a re-visit!
Stopped in for dinner on a recent trip to Rehoboth. Wanted good seafood and stumbled on a solid tap and bottle list. I hate to say this... but forget the beer. This is a rare restaurant on RB where you need to concentrate on the food! I had the clams casino appetizer that was awesome and the lobster, scallop, & ravioli dinner that was simply fantastic. I ate with 5 other people and no one had a single bad thing to say about the food. I would have loved to try some of the oysters (raw or fried) but no one I was dining with was into it. I’m really itching to go back!
Finally stopped in here on a Sunday Evening after passing it up several times over the summer to avoid the crowds. Happened to be @ the end of an Oktoberfest party, had 7 Oktoberfest micro’s on tap! Good bottle list for a place this size, food looked good, raw oysters if that’s your thing, but I had already eaten. Very friendly vibe to the place, casual, just a lot of fun. I will stop back in here over the off-season, found it to be very enjoyable. Good option if you have already been to DFH, although I often go to Rehoboth to try their new brews!
