Fine Dining in Bethany Beach

I am looking for updated reviews of fine dining locations in Bethany Beach, DE., as we're going this summer. Hs anyone been to DiFebo's or Parkway Restaurant lately? Does anyone have a new favorite? Thanks!

  1. Probably Patsy's or Sedonna for fine dining.

    1. DiFebo's is great for classic italian. Great ambiance, but expect to wait long for seating. Always a crowd. Try to to get reservation.
      For Sushi, must try Mysaki on route 1 south as you are just about to leave Bethany. There is a McCabe market and a Grotto pizza in that little plaza.
      Cottage cafe for decent feel good food. great crab cakes and soups. Must try Bethany Blues for their great BBQ ribs. You get to choose the type of sauce, smokey to spicey.

      1. difebo's is still great. home made pastas and a super grilled veal chop
        sedonna is always terrific
        but the best is Blue Coast for fantastic seafood
        best hoagies are at Capriotti's

          Thanks everyone! We're really looking forward to our trip. If you know of any good places in Rehobeth, I'd be happy to hear about those too!

            arena's deli has fantastic sandwiches and a large beer selection as well as a good nacho's platter. it is in Rehoboth off of the main drag
            the cultured pearl has good sushi as does stingray (asian/latin fusion)
            Zebra has good italian food
            I am sure there are blogs regarding where to eat at the beach!

              Arena's is good and on Baltimore Avenue Lori's is also good for sandwiches and salads. On the other side of the Avenue is Penny Lane where Cafe Papillon can be found. Their crepes are wonderful! Louie's is good for pizza and grinders. For craft beer, Dogfish is good. For Happy Hour deals, Fin's is good. The Cultured Pearl is my family's favorite Rehoboth restaurant. Big Fish on Route One never disappoints.

              Cafe Papillon
              42 Rehoboth Ave Ste 7, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

              The Cultured Pearl
              301 Rehoboth Ave, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971
