Theo’s, Eden, Restaurants, Thrasher’s, French Fries, Boardwalk Grub, Downtown, Grazing, Summer 2022, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


Rehoboth Beach is ready for the Fourth of July. The Boardwalk looks great and this past week the beaches have been amazing.

This town is know for its restaurants too besides the beaches. A wide variety of restaurants for sure. From upscale to the Boardwalk Grub as I usually call it.

Last night TC and I decided to graze instead of a full dinner. Bar seating to have drinks and a few small plates. Grazing is a way of eating that involves consuming multiple meals throughout the day. You know how it is, animals graze, stop and continue eating.😁

Our first stop was the bar at Theo’s located at 44 Baltimore Ave. First time there. It was crowded but usually you can find a couple of seats at the bar.

Tuna Tartare for me with avocado, green tomato and wonton crisps. Delicious👏

The Edamame were great…salty and with added spices.


Our next stop was Eden located at 23 Baltimore Ave. This is one of my favorites and knew already what we were going to order. Bar seating again. Plenty of customers inside and outside. Thought this was interesting 😃

The French 75 was ordered but with Courvoisier instead of Gin. And their Grilled Caesar Salad which is the best in town. That tapenade is awesome.

Down to the Boardwalk we went for our last stop to Thrasher’s. These French Fries are loved by many and even though I usually complain because they are not crispy enough well, well, last night they were and I had my share.

Salt and vinegar are a must.

To a bench we went to enjoy and people watch.

Harbour, Restaurant, Canal Square, Historic Lewes, Delaware, Review, Delaware Beaches

June 21st officially opened the Summer Season. It is at this time when Southern Delaware gets bombarded with visitors. For those that live here is a time to plan where to eat and when to shop.
A lot of restaurants have reservations or you may wing it and try bar seating.

In Historic Lewes I love Harbour located at 134 W Market Street. Tel. 302-200-9522. .http://Harbourlewes.com

You may request to be seated indoors or by the bar where you can still see what’s going on the canal. If you can sit outdoors that would be my choice. There are not too many restaurants that offer outdoor dining but it is great to take advantage if they do.

My brother and his wife were visiting and we did have a full weekend. At Harbour some adult beverages were ordered. This particular cocktail was called Honey, I’m Home. Sipsmith Gin, Grapefruit, Lemon, Honey Lavender Infusion, Bee Pollen Salt Rim, finishing with a wildflower. It was very well received 👏

An order of Maine Lobster Stuffed Beignets. I would rename them Lobster Fritters. They looked more like conch fritters than beignets. They were very good though.

Bouillabaise is a wonderful dish full of fresh fish, shrimp, clams, mussels in a saffron tomato broth. The addition of a grilled sourdough is a must because you cannot leave any broth behind. That’s exactly what my brother did.

Two orders of the Pan Roasted Rockfish received thumbs up. This is our local fish and it is delicious 🤤 It had fava beans, shallot, bell peppers, smoked bacon, on a leak tarragon cream.

The Pan Roasted Duck I do order it most of the time. Cooked medium rare with a honey glaze and hemp seed crust, coconut lime risotto, sugar snap peas and chimichurri. What’s not to like😁

Desserts? A Traditional Creme Brûlée…sooo good.

Rhubarb Pie? Tommy loves it but I have never had it. Will take his word.

And the weekend ended in a blink of our eyes.

Happy Summer.🩴

Patsy’s Restaurant, Key West Inspired Cuisine, Bethany Beach, Delaware, Review, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

Patsy’s has been a fixture in the resort town of Bethany Beach for many years. If you have never tasted her inspired Key West cuisine and her southern influence cuisine maybe this post will entice you to make that reservation.

Great atmosphere, more so because it is casual and has an island atmosphere. You may request to dine on the porch or inside. The porch is covered. Patsy’s is located at 121 Campbell Place. It opens at 5:30 p.m. until 10. They close on Tuesday and Wednesday. Check the website for information and updates. To make a reservation call the night before you want the reservation after 9 p.m. 302-858-1203. Website is: http://Www.patsysgourmet.com

I prefer to eat late so we arrived at 7:45. Lisa, our server, I have to give a shout. She was perfect; so attentive.

Drinks were ordered and then this Key West Salad arrived. Doesn’t that look amazing? TC thought it tasted delicious. Mixed greens, avocado, hearts of palm, mango, queso fresco with their honey/lime/mustard dressing

My roasted Corn & Sweet Crab Chowder smelled so good and tasted even better. Just a cup will do because my entree was the Softshell Crabs. It was all about crabs.

These softshells were lightly fried with grilled corn/black bean salad, red cabbage slaw and cilantro aioli. The red cabbage was a little spicy.

TC ordered the scallops. Toasted coconut, jasmin rice, mango/pineapple salsa and Thai Curry coconut sauce. Tasted some of them and they were perfectly cooked.

The beaches are crowded this weekend. It’s the official opening of Summer 2022. Happy Memorial Weekend.

Plan your stay and relax, after all you are at the beach.

Tequila Real, Tex-Mex, Restaurant, Milton, Delaware, Southern Delaware

At this time of the year and looking forward to the beginning of another summer season at the Delaware Beaches, our roads are very crowded. Needless to say the meters are in effect too😩. It is what it is, right?

I am actually looking for places that are easy to find and that parking will not be an issue.

My friend Debbie and I hit the road towards Milton. It takes no time to get there. Milton has a river running through it. It still has somewhat affordable housing, cute Main Street, and shops and restaurants are establishing themselves there.

It was a pretty early evening and we arrived at Tequila Real located at 122 Mulberry St. It opened a few years ago and it is very popular. Monday was crowded. That says something. Outdoors we did sit.

Tequila Real has an extensive menu. All prices are very reasonable and you get generous portions, as well.

I believe they see themselves as Tex-Mex. what does this mean? This type of cooking comes the Tejano people of Texas. A mix you would say.

First things first…A skinny Margarita. Why would you have it any other way? As a driver I had a very exciting club soda. I did taste the Margarita and it was refreshing. I am not a connoisseur but Debbie loved it!

Our server brought us chips and salsa and dipping sauce. The chips were warm. A little guac too.

I ordered the Taco Bowl with all the trimmings. Have you ever gone to a restaurant with a friend and wished you had ordered what she ordered? That was me. I wanted her dish. Mine was okay. With all the food Tequila Real has to offer I should have picked something else.

Now this was Debbie’s dish. Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad. This marinated chicken was so well seasoned and perfectly cooked. Topped over lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pico de gallo, bell peppers, fresh spinach, black beans and a side of ranch dressing. This was the salad but you can also get this salad as an entree. A winner.

We did not have dessert but we did see some beautiful ones coming out. Bathing suit season is around the corner; you know how that is.

What was not to like? A beautiful evening, good food with a good friend.

Hasta luego. Did I tell you that you can practice your Spanish?

Shotti’s Point, Ocean City, Maryland, Restaurant, Bar, Casual, OC, Review

“Bar food with a twist”. They said it, not me but I do have to agree. Shotti’s is located at 3505 Coastal Highway in Ocean City, MD on the bay.

A place my OC friends and I decided to stop for an early dinner. Ocean City and the Delaware Beaches are crowded this week.

I had never been to Shotti’s and I can’t wait to go back. It is casual and the food was great.

This Tuna Poke was outstanding. A nice portion, as well. We saw it coming out and had to have it. Actually, the three of us did. Rare Ahi tuna, saffron rice, kimchi, seaweed salad, avocado, plum sauce, toasted coconut, and shallots. This tower has everything.

This Duck Tostados were the appetizers. Perfect for the three of us. Like it spicy? Keep the jalapeños. Awesome!

They had smoke Gouda, pickled onion, black olives, jalapeños and crema.

That’s all we had. Plenty of other offerings to try the next time, for sure.👏👏

Happy Easter 🐣

Kaisy’s Delights, Restaurant, Lewes, Delaware, Breakfast, Lunch, Baked Goods, Ice cream, Delaware Beaches

Love Kaisy’s located at 1548 Savannah Rd. In Lewes, Delaware. I don’t plan my visit. It may be I just go through the drive through for coffee, or like the other day when I stopped for a chicken salad. They open from 6 to 6👏

Table cloth, cloth napkins. And, pink all around. It is quiet and the menu is extensive offering breakfast, lunch and ice cream too😋

I have been buying my coffee beans there. I do have a grinder. I don’t consider myself a coffee snub. But their coffee is from La Colombe, headquartered in Philly. It is the best.

It is a beautiful Friday in Southern Delaware. I am having my coffee but Sadie my rescue is barking her head off because they are cutting the grass.

Oh well, have a great day. AboutMyBeaches has a FB page and it is also on Instagram.

Eggcellent, Restaurant, Review, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Historic Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches


Opening a restaurant during the pandemic must have been daunting but Alina and her husband who have both worked in the industry have done it. The restaurant is called Eggcellent located at 109 W Market Street in Historic Lewes, Delaware.

Eggcellent has been remodeled and has such a nice fresh look. You can sit indoors or in their covered patio.

The restaurant was originally started with breakfast and lunch but Alina’s husband who is the chef decided to open for dinner, as well.

Last Sunday just a week or so after this decision we went for dinner. We had the restaurant to ourselves because the word is slowly getting out. We loved it👏👏 We were able to talk to Alina in a very casual; not in a rush way.

Complimentary to the table the Hummus was incredible. Not exaggerating. It really was so good and all homemade. The bread was toasted and drizzled with olive oil.

I love Rockfish. It is local so I know it is fresh. My Rockfish was served on a bed of Mediterranean veggies with creamy crab sauce and rice pilaf.

TC decided on the Salmon Oscar served over rice with asparagus, lump crabmeat and hollandaise sauce.

The portions are very generous so you may even take some leftovers home.

No dessert was necessary. We had eaten enough but the desserts for that evening looked pretty tempting.

It is great to see these young restauranteurs taking risks and following their dreams.

Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale, Hotel, Scottsdale, Arizona, Restaurant, Rooftop Bar, Pool, Parking

Staying at this Hilton was perfect for the few nights we would be spending in Scottsdale. It is located at 7142 E 1st St. You can walk everywhere and it was quiet.

The Museum of The West is right across the street and it is not to be missed. You can sit outside while sipping coffee in the morning or a drink.

The lobby is large with lots of sitting areas.

With a rooftop bar to catch an amazing sunset or even dinner. The rooftop bar can be also enjoyed by the public.

The restaurant served us a delicious dinner. Our choice of bar seating.

Beautiful weather, with amazing blue skies.

Until next time.
