Our Best of the Beach Eats - Delaware beaches

Summertime means beach time.
If you are headed to the beach soon here are some of our favorite beach eats in the Delaware Beach area:

Arena's Cafe - Rehoboth Beach (plus other locations)

Arenas Cafe is more than your ordinary cafe. It's the ideal breakfast, lunch, and dinner paradise for individuals and families.
We always have to eat here at least one time while we are at the beach. The tasty food, the fun decorations, and the consistency of the restaurant makes it truly a fantastic place!

Below are some photos of a Sunday breakfast where they offer an all-you-can eat option complete with omelet station or order from the regular breakfast menu. Lunch and dinner are just as good. 

Mickey's Crab House - Bethany Beach
In our opinion an awesome crab house. They also offer other foods (seafood, fried chicken etc.) if you don't want crabs. The restaurant doesn't have a website but here's the address: Jefferson Bridge Rd & Rte 1, Bethany Beach, DE 19930 and phone # (302) 539-5384

 The Bake Shoppe - Rehoboth Beach 
We've been to some amazing bake shops in New York & New Jersey and this ranks up there with the best of them.   A huge variety of pastries, cookies, tarts, cakes, pies, donuts, croissants, egg sandwiches and so much more. 

Summer House - Rehoboth Beach

This is another of our "must" go spots at the beach.  We always make sure we visit Summer House when we are at the beach. 

With its sports bar theme complete with several large screen televisions, it feels homey and has a great diverse menu.  Our favorites are ribs and fried calamari. 
Fried calamari -
 one of the best we've tasted. 
 Summer House has fantastic BBQ ribs that are served with shoe string french fries. They are actually so good we try to go on BBQ Rib night when they are all-you-can-eat.
Salad with cranberries, nuts and sweet dressing
 They also have sandwiches, salads (our mom goes crazy for the Summer House salad), steaks, seafood, pasta, hamburgers.....and some cool root beer.

Fins Fish House and Raw Bar - Rehoboth Beach 
This place is pretty famous at the beach. They are known to have the best seafood in Rehoboth. We can say we agree.  We've eaten both lunch and dinner here. 

The lunch menu has a ton of seafood sandwich options....
Fish tacos
Thomas and his grandpa

Swordfish sandwich

Salmon burger

Dinner has more options....
Fish and chips

House salad with cranberries and almonds
Grilled scallops salad with goat cheese, nuts and arugala (our mom loved this!)

Crab cakes 
Swordfish with their famous mac and cheese

Baked flounder stuffed with crab meat with mac & cheese - our  Grandpa LOVED it)

Leave room for desserts. You don't want to miss trying one of their many cakes. 

You can't leave the beach without having ice cream.  Our favorite is Kilwin's Ice Cream, Fudge and Chocolate  because the ice cream is delicious and there is so much more to choose from including fudge and chocolates.
