I'd give 5 stars if the patrons were a little more welcoming. My daughter and I have been going here for fried pickles since she was in elementary school. They are the BOMB. They also have some wonderful specialty cocktails.
Always a fun time at the Pond. Live music is a great feature. Food is really good and priced right with daily specials. Friendly bartenders! Ask for Liz, Peter, Donny, Ariel and Q for some of the best drinks in Rehoboth. Drink specials too.
Food was okay, not great. Prices didn't really match the quality of the food, but to be fair the prices are lower than a lot of the places in the area. Our server made us feel like we were inconveniencing him with our requests-- asking to substitute eggs for meat, using multiple forms of payment (the dining room was not busy). Not sure if he was having a bad day but just didn't seem like he wanted to be there or that he wanted to help us. There is also not a single brunch entree that does not have meat included, which is kind of strange in this day and age.
Planned on going to a nearby famous brewery, but it was a long wait. Found this place while walking around...and her glad we did. Walked in to the bar, which was crowded but seemed fun. The dining room is small and quaint. Friendly service. The food was outstanding...not fancy, but very well made, good presentation and most importantly was delicious. Atmosphere of the dining room was casual, and the musician playing in the bar could be heard...not too loudly, but it created a nice ambience. Menu has a nice variety of American staples with fun twists. Beer and wine menu was above average. If you are in Rehoboth and want a solid meal on a place with a local flavor, check out Rigby's.
Ypu are surrounded by dollar bills here! Good place to go with a group. Mix of drinks available. My island shrimp basket was very tasty. You could taste the coconut in the shrimps' batter. The coleslaw was a creamy version but the cabbage was not overdressed and still had a lot of crunch.
There are a few good things I can say about this place, it is conveniently located between Rehobeth ave and Wilmington ave before the boardwalk, the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is really cool. However it took 45 minutes to get our food and when we did it was nothing to be excited about. We stopped for lunch around 12:30 it was not terribly busy. Maybe a good place to have drinks but definitely not the place to stop for lunch especially with a family. And definitely don’t order the Cuban.
The atmosphere was fun but the food was not good and every drink I wanted they “didn’t have that”. Went to celebrate my 21st and couldn’t even get a drink. Also toke the hostess 15 mins to even come put our names in, just not a great place.
Usually I have a good time but last night was too much. I was trying to get dinner for my friends birthday the service was not good at all. Was very disappoint. Took forever to get drinks and boxes and check. I know it was a entertainment night but I've been there plenty of Sunday's after 10, but this time I just had to leave. I couldn't move, I was getting bumped into so many times.
Great food. Our bartender/waiter (Padraig) was attentive and gave good advice on food selections. We sat on the porch and on a hot day (95 degrees) it was very cool and pleasant. We loved everything we were served and look forward to our next visit.
Great atmosphere..great music..beachy feel and friendly staff. Food? Not so much. The kitchen is too small and too slow for the capacity. We waited for almost 50 minutes for our food, when the server kept apologizing and telling us " 2 more minutes". $ 20 for 2 pitiful looking crab cakes and FF, when you could tell both of them were frozen. Definitely will NOT go back for dinner, maybe just a drink, because the place has a nice feel to it.
Great Place! We had Mother's Day brunch there. Everything was perfect. Great wait staff and food. Amazing jazz pianist. Lovely drinks and champagne. The dessert bomb is not to be missed. Such a fabulous time, we decided to go back for Father's day.
This place is absolutely amazing. We had our anniversary dinner here and the food was to die for. We had rock fish and fillet mignon which were both fabulous. Me and my fiancé are very picky with our rare medium steak and they did an amazing job with it. By far one of the best steaks I have had. Our server surprised us with champagne and baked Alaska as a treat for our anniversary which was very tasty and nice of him.
Music - baaad. Just terrible. Worst music ever. For a gay club at the beach they just have no idea what music to put on. You want to have fun but you just can't - because of the music. I don't know how the restaurant part is doing but the bar is overpriced. Did I mention how bad the music is? The drag show could be fun but it really depends. Magnolia Applebottom is the best.
Fantastic restaurant, I love both the atmosphere and the food. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the wines. The food was delicious and we really had an excellent time here. The real secret is after dinner going next door for an amazing night of dancing and dinner with the locals.
Seasonal Watering hole that caters to the LGBT crowd. Food is just ok (nothing to write home bout), cocktails are well made and priced accordingly. Good customer service / waitstaff, Very crowded for happy hour. The crowd is mixed (young and old), can be very S&M (Stand and Model) at times.... better to go with a group.
Don't bother with their pretentious hokum!! Rude and obnoxious from host to bartender. How they think being unwelcoming and offering terrible food is a recipe for longevity is beyond me. Far better choices in the area!
