Shorebreak Lodge

/ Updated on September 27, 2017

Shorebreak Lodge is under new ownership and management. 14 Global’s opening Chef Shane Kellaher is in the kitchen.

Stay tuned.

    New Chef! Chef Vlad! Great food.

  2. Bob says:

    Had a great table for two in the corner at the window. The bar was packed at 530. Grapefruit Martinis, octopus, scallops, and shrimp appetizers and we were in heaven. Service was exceptional. We love this place.

  3. Regina says:

    By far my favorite place at the beach these days! The pork belly and egg ? Breakfast for dinner! The scallops are plump and perfectly cooked every time (my hubby us a fan of their surf and turf). I had an amazing piece of amberjack on Valentine’s Day. And the last time we were in we nibbled off the happy hour menu: nothing disappointed!

    My husband, friend, and I just ate at Shorebreak tonight for the first time. How have we missed this fantastic gem of a restaurant? Before I mention the food, I must give praise to the capable waitstaff – as professional as any in a high end restaurant, but with a casual and friendly (but not in a TGIFriday’s way) attitude. This is a restaurant for adults for sure, which makes it quite a lovely oasis. Even parents need a break! Now, on to the food – the shrimp and grits, yes! The mashed potatoes with kim chi, of course! The octopus – more please! The dayboat scallops appetizer – seconds! Beets and chèvre – meh, they can’t all be winners. Pumpkin pie cheesecake could have used a sprinkle more sugar, but the chocolate pie with pecans was spot on. Our drinks were strong, the prices relatively reasonable, and a good time was had by all. Will we return? Like waves to a beach.

    Have always loved Shorebreak Lodge, since they opened. The menu is different from anything else you can get in Rehoboth, and for me, the cocktails are the best in town. For some reason, the eastern shore seems to have been swept by a mania for sweet cocktails that taste like dessert. At Shorebreak I can the perfect Manhattan, or ask the bartender to make me something special. I love that. The octopus is to die for, I get it every time. The re-decoration is an amazing change, it’s gorgeous. I love eating at the bar, it’s so cozy.

    Anniversary dinner on May 24, 2013 was absolutely fantastic. We order steamed clams, mushroom bruchetta, strip steak, and the halibut. Every item was a “10”! Great service + great food = a winning combo!

    We been recommending ShoreBreak to our guests and they all have been raving. Keep up the great work!

    I took my husband to here for his birthday dinner last night where we met up with some of our other friends. I’ve been wanting to try it based on the reviews I’ve read on here and Trip Advisor. It definitely lived up to everything I read! We started out with some appetizers….the one we tried, the wild mushroom bruschetta was good, but I wasn’t a fan of the huge (almost calamari like) wild shrooms! What I was amazed by (and am eating the leftovers as I type) was my main course – the surf and turf of 2 large sea scallops, an amazing pesto risotto and braised melt-in-your-mouth beef! My husband had the Salmon, two of our other dining companions had the meatloaf over a bed of wow those are amazing mashed potatoes (our friend MADE us try them, they were that good!), someone else had the whole chicken and the last friend had the fresh fish. My husband said, “Have we found our new favorite restaurant?” It was that good! We will definitely return!

    I went back to this restaurant for dinner after reading your review. My friend and I had an excellent meal. I had the short ribs and the roasted beet salad. My friend had the swordfish and arugula salad. We had an excellent server who answered all of our questions and her recommendation for wine was right on. I had been to this location last year when it was Cosmopolitan and I had the worst meal there.
    My only suggestion for improvement would be the decor and the dishes. Perhaps someone could help them with that,but the food is superb.

    Foodie… we’ve been following you since you started this site. We love your writing. We just wanted to tell you that your article about shorbreak lodge is one of the best you have ever written. We know the restaurant is good, but we’re talking about the quality of your writing in this one.
    Despite all the other writing you are doing for other papers and things, you haven’t lost it.
    THanks for doing this. We really needed it around here.

  10. Palma Salerno says:

    I simply LOVE the new menu, look, and staff. 5 stars, One of the BEST resturants in Rehoboth.

  11. Andy says:

    I am in love with Shorebreak Lodge. The very best food I’ve had in Rehoboth since the early days of Salt Air. Rob is a very talented Chef. The Watermelon Gazpacho and Crab and Lentil soups were probably the best bowls of soup I’ve ever had. Mussels with avocado were delicious and so unique. Skate in brown butter with dried cherries was wonderful and such a large portion for an appetizer. Also sampled some sides- the savory tomato bread pudding and cheesy risotto both stood out. On our second visit we had the Monkfish over Panzanella Salad and the Artic Char with cauliflower almond puree, mushrooms and asparagus- both fantastic. Looking forward to many quiet relaxing meals here this fall because I guarantee there will be a line out the door next summer.

    6 of us had a great dinner last night at Shorebreak. Food was tasty and interesting. Service was knowledgeable, fun, and efficient. Standouts amongst the 6 of us included short ribs and scallops with risotto (“surf and turf”),watermelon salad, kale and leeks, and watermelon gazpacho. Mussels might have been a tad overcooked but were flavorful and the broth was yummy!! We think Shorebreak is a winner and look for a long and successful stint on the RB restaurant scene!!!

  13. John says:

    My wife, KeKe, and I went there [last week].
    We like food out of the ordinary and ordered a very good skate in brown butter sauce and a new twist on Surf and Turf.
    Braised short ribs and huge grilled scallops. The ribs were seasoned just so and the scallops quickly seared like tuna. Grilled outside, cool center.
