Off The Hook, Restaurant, Review, Bethany Beach, Delaware Beaches

That motto above I like. It describes my group of foodie friends. We go out to try restaurants with no occasion in mind. This time is great to do so because many restaurants offer specials.

Wednesday a couple of weeks ago that’s where we went. Off The Hook is located at 769 Garfield Parkway in Bethany Beach, DE. The restaurant opens at 11:30 a.m.

Today 1/2 priced entrees begin at 3. Happy Hour from 3 to 6. It is very popular and they don’t take reservations. It has a nice size bar where you can dine, as well.

We all have fish. Our choices were delicious and here are some photos to feast on.

Good Food, Will Travel. Worth the trip. Good food, healthy, local, attentive service, Wednesday 1/2 priced entrees. Specials every day. Happy Hour every day.

Give it a try??

Confucius, Restaurant, Review,Chinese Food, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches

Confucius was a Chinese thinker and social philosopher….But in Rehoboth Beach it is a very good Chinese restaurant. Not all Chinese restaurants are the same. This one stands above others.

Shawn and Danielle have owned Confucius for almost 20 years. They are the perfect host and hostess. I remember years ago watching their son doing his homework in the back. That young man is in college now.

Confucius is located on 57 Wilmington Ave. right in Downtown Rehoboth Beach. 302-227-3848.

I have my favorite dishes. My go to ones. So, I always order a whole fish. No, don’t wrinkle your nose until you try it. I am like a cat eating a fish? I dig into the fish like I dig into my crabs.

The Whole Black Sea Bass is intimidating, but trust me it is so good. You don’t have to look at the eyes. Once you take that first bite you will say Oh now I know what she was talking about.

Their green beans are to die for. You wonder why would I order green beans? Simple, they are that good.

An appetizer of Salt & Pepper Shrimp should not be missed. Crispy and you should try them or someone in your table should. But they may not want to share.

General Tso’s Chicken was ordered and I can attest it was very good. It can be a shareable dish for the table. There are many stories about the history of this dish. Check it out.

Their duck spring rolls were nice as a starter sipping wine waiting for the salt and pepper shrimp?

As you can tell I really enjoy Confucius. Their food and service is consistent and when I leave I think of how I cannot wait to come back.

Enjoy the Season.

Blue Moon, Restaurant, Bar, Entertainment Venue, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, The Atrium, Delaware Beaches

Blue Moon is one of those iconic places in Rehoboth Beach that checks all the boxes. Great food, love the atmosphere, excellent service, entertainment that you would want to come for more.

Love The Atrium, Bar and high tops. Two piano players this summer. I love them both. The customers get right into the whole show. More so if you can carry a tune.

Location? 35 Baltimore Avenue.

I order the Tuna Carpaccio all the time.

Next? Mozzarella Burrata…Grilled Mango. How good is that?

Not only did we order Roasted Oysters. We order two of them?

You may not think you would order the Chicken Pot Pie. Think again. It is awesome?? You need to try it.

Very tasty Short Rib Stroganoff. Another good choice.

Stuffed Shrimp, big, perfectly cooked and crabmeat to boot!

Now the “piece of resistance”. Should we do it? Of course we did. The Moon Pie Bomb. I may have felt guilty but not really.

Our Server Juan Perez deserves a big shout❤️

Wishing the best weekend. AboutMyBeaches is on Facebook and Instagram.

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.

.http://www.federalfritter.com

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.

Harbour Restaurant, Canal Square, Lewes, Delaware, Review, Outdoor Dining, Canalfront, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches

Taking an opportunity of a gorgeous day we went for an early dinner to Harbour at Canal Square located at 134 W Market St., Lewes. Tel. 302-200-9500. It opens Wednesday-Sunday. Lunch Friday and Saturday and Brunch on Sunday. Please check:


http://Www.harbourlewes.com

I want their Gazpacho recipe, topped with shrimp. Truly delicious on a summer day.

Crab cakes for me. I would have them again for sure. No fillers and how great tasting they were.

The scallops were a hit. Look how beautiful they were.

Desserts were tempting and we did have them. For me I am a fan of Creme Brûlée.

And a Flourless Chocolate Cake??

Loved it when after dinner I thought that I could not wait to come back.

Always so picturesque in Lewes and Canalfront dining cannot be beat.

Great service as usual?

Have a great week. AboutMyBeaches is on FB and Instagram. Check us out?

Agave, Mexican Restaurant, Bethany Blues, Restaurant, Music Venue, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

Out and About Friday night. Not the best weather. Checking out what’s going on in Lewes. Great to see people walking regardless of the weather.

First stop? Agave located at 137 2nd St. This is, actually, Main Street in Lewes.

Agave has been in Lewes for many years and this is the first location and my personal favorite. There is background music, people are talking. It is cozy and fun. Favorite spot to take a seat is the bar. Lots of action there. It is a busy place. They open at lunch.

Two favorite drinks I truly love here. The Avocado Martini, and their traditional Margarita. Salt too please.

Tonight I chose their original margarita. It is so good.

It goes great with my Avocado and Mango Salad with some skirt steak to make it a full dinner.

Tommy decided to get a Pomegranate Margarita to accompany his Guacamole. They do make the best guacamole in town.

Have you had their Puffy Tacos? The tacos become puffy when the corn tortilla is deep fried. The water in the masa expands. I like them.

Tommy’s Puffy Fish Tacos were very good and doggie bag was requested. And there is his Pomegranate Margarita ?

Completely satisfied we continued on our Friday stroll.

People scream for Ice cream. There was a line for Kings Ice Cream. There is always one.

Next Stop? Bethany Blues on Coastal Highway. Great music this weekend. The venue for live music is perfect. Last night two bands but tonight starting at 8:30 is Roger Girke and The Wondering Souls. You can eat, drink and dance all in one place.

Have fun whatever you are doing. Relax, you are at the beach. Slow down and enjoy the moment.

Ice Cream, Hopkins Farm Creamery, A Basil Surprise, Lewes, Delaware, Delaware Beaches

I Scream for Ice Cream. I love it year round. Hopkins Farm Creamery has so many flavors. It is located at 18186 Dairy Farm Rd. In Lewes, DE. It is right on Rt 9. That’s the road that takes you to Georgetown. You can’t miss it.

A couple of weeks ago the annual event to raise funds for Meals on Wheels took place at Ivy in Dewey. This is a competition where guests go by the tables of local restaurants and taste and vote for favorites. It is a fun night raising money for a good cause.

I shared on my AboutMyBeaches some of my favorites but this particular best on my book was the garnish. Yes, you heard it right. How could a garnish capture someone’s intensity so much?

Hopkins Farm Creamery had its table, sign and all.

And the delicious ice cream to taste.

Here comes the part that captured my attention. Do you see the garnish? You could eat. It was crispy, sweet with that delicious basil leave.

I was not the only one talking about it. This is what they told me. You make an egg wash with egg white and brush it on both sides of the basil leave. Then, sprinkle heavily with granulated sugar and let it dry at room temperature.

I lined a cookie sheet with waxed paper then on a plate put the sugar in order to heavily coat the leave on both sides. I let it sit until I could tell it was dry. It came out perfectly. Check it out.

Perfect as a garnish when you want your guest to say I Want The Recipe.

I then saved them overnight but that’s all they lasted. Better make them the day of.

Have a great day?

Cedar Land and Sea, Restaurant, Review, Ocean View, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, 2023

I have to tell you that going to Ocean View brings me back to the mid 1970s. At the time the only grocery store for Bethany, Ocean View, and Millville was Hocker’s. Treasure Island Fashions started in the 1980’s and it is still there.

The community of Ocean View has grown so much and and I hardly recognize it.

Good Food Will Travel so TC and I took off from Rehoboth Beach on Friday to check Cedar in 2023. It only took about 15-20 minutes so don’t be shy and get out and go.

Cedar is located at 30234 Cedar Neck Rd. They open at the moment Thursday, Friday and Saturday. To make a reservation please call 302-539-2327.

It was crowded. It is a little noisy or I should say lively. We sat at a high table for 2.

A few drinks, a chowder which I forgot to take photos. It was good.

I ordered the Fresh Grilled Ahi Tuna. It was cooked medium rare, more rare than medium per my request. Soy reduction, wasabi creme drizzle, sea weed salad, rice and veggies. I thoroughly enjoyed it. A sizable serving; took a doggie bag home. Will have it again.

The temperature of the duck as suggested by the chef was medium rare. TC went further and asked for it to be rare. He thought it was very good. Doggie bag home too.

Most of the time I don’t order dessert but I always ask what are they offering. I had to order the Tres Leches. Perfect for sharing. This was Miguel’s rendition of a much loved dessert in Latin countries. Originating in Mexico where Miguel is from. That night he made a chocolate one but most of the time you see vanilla.

So good, light, not soggy, many air bubbles. It is a Sponge Cake, soaked in 3 milks; evaporated, condensed and whole.

Love, Love?

A shout to Mary, our server from the Ukraine. She was so good. They have a gem with her.

Get out there and check our local restaurants before it gets too crowded.

Until next time enjoy the season.
