  1. You should check the threads and two other resources:

    Many restaurants are open in November but the days and hours may be different so be sure to call. You will find some great off-season deals!
    Lupo Di Mare and Big Fish Grill are two great year-round choices in Rehoboth. The Fin's Happy Hour is still very popular and Dogfish Head is fun for shooting pool and drinking beer.
    In Lewes, Fish On never disappoints. Striper Bites, Kindle, Half Full, and Jerry's all have great specials this time of year.
    Be sure to pick up the Cape Gazette when you get here to find more specials.
    I hope you have a great time, kennycandy.

    Big Fish Grill Restaurant
    Highway 1, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

    Striper Bites
    107 Savannah Rd, Lewes, DE 19958

    Half Full
    113 W Market St, Lewes, DE 19958

      Sensous - thanks for your reply to my original post - it was very helpful!

      here's my feedback from a visit to rehoboth beach over Veteran's Day weekend, 2011.
      our group of five adults had three dinners over the weekend -

      Oyster House- 50 wilmington ave 260-9193
      definitely very busy the friday nite we went. clam chowder and oyster stew excellent. main couses were fried oysters, oyster po-boy and a crabcake sandwich. did not order desserts. $26- per person including tip and 2 drinks total for the table. restaurant can get noisy. staff definitely impressed with their positive attitude - glad to see you, thanks for coming in, etc. would rate this restaurant excellent.

      Lupo Di Mare - located in hotel rehoboth on rehoboth ave 226-2240
      went saturday nite and just got in before waiting times prevailed. 3 course special for $19- if you're seated before 6 but we ate later at regular prices. had to ask for bread even after we had been seated for about half-hour- restaurant policy? (didn't see bread on other tables). didn't take as many notes as i should have - but i know my veal meatball starter was was the eggplant parm entree i had that was a special. other main's were sea bass that the three ladies raved about and a fish medley that was also rated highly. no desserts were ordered. $37- per person including tip and 2 drinks total for the table. restaurant can get noisy. would rate this restaurant very, very good to excellent

      Summer House- 228 rehoboth ave 227-3895
      went on thursday night and the bar area was busy and the pub area moderately busy. we knew about the 2 course for $19- special in advance but were not given the menu when seated by the host. the waitress then saw one of the menus was the wrong one and corrected it but we still did not have the 2 course for $19- menu and had to ask for it. i thought this was pretty unprofessional. we ordered off of that menu and had ceaser salads (excellent), pumpkin crab bisque and white chicken chili as starters. mains we each had the seafood combo (pick 2 out of crab cake, scallops and shrimp). sides included neva's potatoes (super scalloped potatoes), mushrooms (great big portion) and sweet potato fries. same scenario - no dessert, 2 drinks total for the table. $25- per person with tip. waitress very helpfull with a food allergy question before ordering. would rate Summer House as good to very good. not in the same league as the first two restaurants but probably not expected to being a pub/bistro.

        You're welcome, kennycandy.
        I cannot believe I haven't been to The Henlopen City Oyster House yet. I know I'll love it. They were really, really nice at our Farmer's Market too.

        1. re: Sensuous

          Hi Sensuous - Henlopen City Oyster House is decent especially since they have a good selection of beer on draft, including a cask conditioned, to go with the oysters. I see Salt Air is opening a branch in the old health food store on Rt 9 - heard anything yet?

          1. re: Lewes

            Lewes! Hello! You are always well informed.
            Just last night we drove down 9 and I saw the Salt Air sign in place of the old one. I wondered if it could be the same Salt Air. How nice it would be for the people who live and work in Georgetown to have a good restaurant closer in.

            1. re: Sensuous

              I see Salt Air's web site says Closed for Renovations. Are they moving out of Rehoboth? Where is this new location on route 9? Doesn't sound like it is walkable from the beach/town. Thank you.

                Here is an article that might answer your questions:
                It sounds to me like the Rehoboth Salt Air will remain open on Wilmington Avenue after renovations.
