The Federal, Restaurant, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Rehoboth Beach Eats, A Bistro

Wow, two visits to The Federal in 2 weeks. That good. It opened in Downtown Rehoboth Beach a few years ago as Federal Fritter. I have to agree that calling it just The Federal is so much better.

It is located at 62A Rehoboth Ave. 302-727-5609.


Introducing friends to The Federal has been fun.

We tried the Crispy Virginia Oyster Fritters and we chose the Lemon Horseradish Aioli for dipping. They were crispy and light.

Going back and forth….what should we have?

A choice of the Softshells as a main course. They did have them as a starter, as well.

I am so glad the House Made Ricotta Gnocchi is kept on the menu. It is delicious. This dish has MD Blue Crab (the best), gulf shrimp, New Bedford scallops, sugar snap peas, pesto cream sauce.

The scallops is another dish that is excellent. Served with sauteed sweet corn, local peaches, and pickled banana peppers.

I decided to go with two starters for my dinner. Brought at the same time.

Chilled Delmarva Sweet Corn Soup with poached gulf shrimp, pickled watermelon, and roasted corn.

Then the Starter offering of the Softshells.

Fresh fruit during the summer…..Yummy tarts with homemade ice cream.

I have to give a shout to Lauren. She was so friendly and knew the menu well.

Summer 2023 as we know it is coming to an end but the next season is my favorite in Southern Delaware.
