Dining, Henlopen City Oyster House, Restaurant, Review, The Second Season, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware,


Cathy and I decided to stop for something to eat at one of the most popular restaurants in this coastal town…Henlopen City Oyster House.  It is located on 50 Wilmington Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.  Tel. 302-260-9193.  Website?  Open for lunch and dinner…no reservations.

It was surprising to see Rehoboth Beach so crowded on a Tuesday night.  Almost no parking…can you believe it?  It is a thing of the past when Rehoboth Beach used to roll up its sidewalks until the following season.  No way…this is a year-round resort.  Very vibrant, offering its visitors and residents something to do, practically every night of the week.

I love this restaurant….it never disappoints.  Fresh seafood, salty oysters, beer, specialty drinks, and wine.

A Fruit and Nut Salad offered sliced apple, five spice pumpkin seeds, candied walnuts, dried cherries, bleu cheese, and a while balsamic dressing.  A substantial salad full of flavor.


I love beets and their Roasted Beet salad contained sunflower seeds, pickled radish, feta cheese, mixed greens, drizzled with a balsamic reduction.  Very good!!


The Herb Grilled Maryland Rockfish was ordered by Cathy and it was grilled and lightly brushed with an herb olive oil, served with her choide of seasonal veggies and braised kale.  Seasoned to perfection!


I ordered the Sesame & Spice Seared New Zealand Hapuka Seabass with spicy coconut green bamboo rice, lobster mushrooms, zipper peas, grilled long beans, and a cashew curry sauce.   All those combinations gave this dish an array of flavors that were truly delicious.


Even though the desserts can be tempting at Henlopen City Oyster House, we were very satisfied.  Perhaps another time.

Talk to you later….have a good one!!
