Shrimpy’s Snack Shack by the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach has leased the old Hooked Seafood & Martini Bar space in Midway. It will be called Shrimpy’s Bar & Grill. It will be a challenge to go from a walk-up snack stand by the Boardwalk to a fairly large full-service restaurant, but this is not their first rodeo: Ron, Ray and Jim have owned a 6000 sq. ft. full service restaurant in Northern New Jersey for 16 years. So it looks like they can pull this off.
Former occupants of that space include John DiLeo’s Tutto Bene, Adriatico and Matt Haley’s short-lived Betty’s. Hooked Seafood & Martini Bar lasted six years, a good record for a seasonal resort town.
We’ll keep you posted as the Shrimpy’s crew comes closer to their debut in Midway Center!
