It’s on RT 1 so you don’t have to deal with the headache of going into downtown Rehoboth. It’s tucked in a strip mall that has plenty of parking. The food is nothing special but they do have some fun and creative dishes. I have never had a bad meal, but never a great one either. They have a very nice beer list of not just local stuff. I prefer this over going into down town Rehoboth any day. I would say go here for lunch, DFH if you wanted to try a brew pub exclusive, and Pig and Fish (sister restaurant with more creative and higher end food)

Stopped here for lunch on my trip out to Dogfish Head recently. Nice clean interior, this place is more a restaurant than a bar, though there is a small bar in the back.
The tap list was ok, but I guess I was expecting more local/regional stuff than they had, and at least a little variety. 95% of the beers were spiced/wheat spring seasonals or light Belgian styles. I also remember not getting an actual list from our server, we had to go look at a chalkboard or something clear across the room near the bar. It appeared bottles were available but no list was to be found here.
The menu looked promising. I got a sandwich with multiple kinds of pork on it. It was good but too large and greasy to want to stay to continue drinking.
Overall definitely not a bad stop, but I'd prefer to just hang at DFH all weekend over this place to be honest.

This place is easy to miss, but try not to, if only to try out the beer selection. We went on a Thursday off-season earlier tonight. We arrived at 545pm or so and it wasn't busy, and never got overwhelmed during our stay. We had an app amongst our beer offerings and the waitress understood we were in for the long haul (in no hurry).
The draft selection was appx 10-12 beers, with about 30-40 bottle and can offerings. The selection was pretty good, and although they did offer a few BMC, and a few local beers (always a plus in my mind) the range of others was really good. Yes, they had some DFH, but also imports and other craft beers. We easily found options we hadn't had before.
The food was decent but nothing overly special,even though we only ordered an appetizer and shared a sandwich. We filled our curiosity with 4 oz pours on a few beers, and found a few beers we want to have again (and again) . It was nice as we slowly tried our beers that our waitress adjusted and visited us as our beer got low. Funny that it appeared the "beer manager" was around and approving of our choices (or so our waitress indicated).
The reason to come here is beer options, for sure (I was drooling over the kegs I saw that had yet to be tapped). The food was totally enjoyable, and the service was pretty darn good. We were in the restaurant, but I did notice the bar area was a bit small, and the 2 TVs weren't offering much, if i were looking for downsides.

Popped in here real quick after a recent trip to Dogfish Head. It seemed a pretty decent place, nestled innocently in a small strip mall adjacent to a Burger King. You pass by a small seating area to get to the bar, which seats maybe 12-15 people. Simple decor on the walls, somewhat dimly lit, TVs, a large chalkboard displaying what's on tap. There was a decent selection on tap--about 10 to choose from--and the beer list tempted us with stuff that was in the pipeline but not on yet, and it that's not enough for you, there is a pretty nice bottle selection as well. Small pour option is always good. We had eaten earlier, but we sampled a few small items for a snack, and every thing was good. Our bartender was friendly and on the ball, so no complaints about the service.
Our visit was short but sweet, and I would like to go back here for a full session, but on the rare occasions we go to Rehoboth Beach, it's always for the DFH brewpub, so...

First, let me just say that Dogfish Head brewpub is always closed on my birthday for renovations. I understand it's the middle of winter and well, I guess I really should just blame my parents. That being said...
After a tour of Dogfish's new brewery on my birthday, we decided to go to The Pickled Pig Pub after a recommendation from our tour guide. It's located in north Rehoboth Beach, before you get to the beach and nestled in a small shopping center. The first thing I saw was a chalkboard with all the local Delaware breweries. So great to encourage everyone to drink locally! The beer list was good. I was obviously in the mood for some Dogfish and they had the World Wide Stout, 90 Minute, Olde School Barleywine, and 60 Minute on draft. They constantly have a great selection of local beers consisting of the aforementioned DFH, Evolution, 16 Mile, and Twin Lakes. There is also an offering of bottles and cans. The food was okay. I had the Pub Pulled Pork. I've had better. (i.e. TJ's Everyday...OMG!) I highly recommend visiting The Pickled Pig if you are in the area. Being such a small state, it's difficult to come across a good beer place. But there are a few hidden gems around this First State and The Pickled Pig is definitely one of them.

Nestled in a small strip mall just south of the first set of outlets-right next to Pier 1 if you are looking. restaurant towards the front and a small bar that seat perhaps 12 to 14 tucked in the back. Service has been great both times I have been in. Bartender knew his stuff and was more then happy to pour small tastes of each beer.
Selection is very good for the area. Prior visit had 120, Gonzo Imperial Porter, a Southern Tier, several DFH, Evo and 16 Mile from DE and others. This time there was Saison Du Pont, Hennipin, Espresso Yeti, DFH 60, Evo Summer, Ofallon's peach and about 6 others. The beers are fairly reasonable price wise and you can get a half sized glass or 4 ounce serving if you want.
Only had a cheese plate which was great but have not had any other food so I really cant comment. Last few times I have tried to go to DFH it has been mobbed. This is a great place for a pint or 2, especially if the wife wants to hit the outlets and you are shopped out.

Had dinner there tonight. Great atmosphere, great food, better beer. They had a great selection of locals as well as other fairly rare micros, and a couple Belgians. The food was great (I got the Cuban and pretzels), but they didn't have any vegetarian options. They also do 4 oz pours of beers so you can sample a couple if you don't want to pick just one. Prices weren't terrible, but were a little on the expensive side for what you get. The fries were great too! The website seemed to be pretty updated. Surprisingly good place in the middle of the outlets...

Found via beerfly while on vacation in Rehoboth. Location is by the outlets in a strip mall. Small indoor seating area. Our bartender was very good, gave samples, and explained beer styles to the members of our group who were non-ba's. Good selection of styles and breweries, which had a few small locals on (Evolution). Interesting menu and our group split appetizers which were very good. Prices were reasonable. A nice addition to the local beer scene which will be part of our future beercation plans.

Pretty good place in an interesting location; near the outlets! So let your wife or girlfriend or husband or boyfriend shop while you can try great craft beers.
Aside from rotating Dogfish Head taps, they get a great regional selection as well. I have had some interesting Evolution stuff, Troegs, and Victory there (St. Victorious was great on tap).
The food is solid there as well. I can't name anything specific, but I like it.
Also, Jerry the bartender is great, and always happy to chat you up.
Thursday's they run beers through Randall and they can get creative.

This place is a must see if you are in town. They had a good variety of brews on tap, covering locals, imports, and a diverse range of styles. I had DFH Burton Baton and Paulaner Hefeweizen on tap, and Victory Whirlwind Wit in bottles. Saison Dupont, and other DFH rarites caught my eye, but I chose not to orfer them. Two great things about their beer selection: they gave the option of a small snifter pour, and they had $3 pint specials of Paulaner Hefe and DFH 60 Minute.
The food was really interesting. They had a cheese plate with a very nice happy hour price. I also had a cup of chili. The quality of the food was better than I hoped for. I wish there were more beer bars with a similar menu/quality.
