Describe what makes your business stand out:We stand out in the Rehoboth market because we offer fine dining food in a casual atmosphere at an everyday price. Our new menu allows you to eat the way that you like. If you would prefer to try a few small plates instead of a traditional entrée, we have you covered. Our menu has something for everyone from the strictest vegetarian to the most avid carnivore! By using locally sourced food whenever possible, our menu follows the seasons. There are always a few new dishes along with the tried and true favorites on the menu.

What’s new about your business this year, or what do you have planned? This year we are featuring the fresh, local and organic food from our area. Our chef, Hari Cameron, is very active in the Slow Food Movement and we are partnering with Fifer Farms in a Farm-to-Table series, which will bring the farmers to the restaurant for weekly dinners with the customers. Our Wine Bar is with live music on certain nights and Wine Tasting Classes will resume in the fall.
