First time at the Pines and will definitely return. Excellent food, good vibe, nice people, attentive staff. We happened to be there the night of the steak special and it was delicious. 8 ounce filet cooked perfectly. Green beans were very good and seasoned perfectly. Brussel sprouts were also done very well with the garnish of thai peppers which added to the already terrific flavor. Will definitely return to sample other dishes on the menu as this may well be a chef to follow.

New Year's Eve and they had a fixed 5 course price menu. Food was excellent but a bit pricey at $95 per. Did not include drinks

Service and food were great, especially for New Year’s Eve, when most places charge a premium for rushed service and mass prepared food due to the holiday.

Everything was fine. Just one negative mention. We were in a corner table and found it hard to enter & exit due to the legs of the table. A little squishy also. Good food, good friends, good service, good fun!

We were seated outside, which I thought would be less than amazing, since everyone was inside. It was private and very cozy with three heaters, we had the front porch to ourselves and the meal was heavenly; love the filet and wine special, add shrimp and horseradish sauce!!!

Being new to the area, I’ve been trying out all the local restaurants. BUT I cannot resist dining at The Pines. The service is so welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktails are amazing… the Manhattan and Pear martini are my faves. The filet night is a great deal and prepared to perfection. The atmosphere is cozy and trendy. By far my favorite restaurant in Rehoboth.

The filet mignon was excellent and cooked just the way I liked it. The dining room was a little too noisy and better sound baffles is a good idea for the restaurant to look into.

Monday night steak specials are such a deal - the place is usually packed for the filets that are perfectly cooked to order every single time. One of our favorites in Rehoboth Beach!

Good Food, excellent service and a couple of nice surprises.

We were dining out on our first day of retirement. Yes, two of us retired on the same day. One retired from self-employment, but the other from corporate—this was really the reason we came.

Thursday happens to be “Comfort Food Night”. The breaded, Milanese pork loin was fried to perfection—tender, crispy and not at all greasy like such a dish can be. It was served over mashed potatoes and green beans which were substituted for the usual Brussels sprouts. I chose the beef stroganoff—a giant mound of braised short rib and brandied mushrooms mixed into egg noodles and topped with crème fraiche. It was delicious but the portion was way too much to eat in one sitting.

Management saw the note on our Open Table reservation and made a point to stop by our table to congratulate us on our retirements. We thought that was enough, but they also picked up the cost of our dessert. It was a large rectangular slab of flan topped with an apple raisin compote. In my mind, this should not have worked, but it did. What a nice surprise on top of a surprise.

The Pines seems like it should be a bit darker, moodier than it is. The brighter than necessary lighting (although there were still a couple of people at one table who found it difficult to read the menu without using their phone light) took away from the ambiance that should have matched the great food a lot better. The lack of atmosphere was definitely made up for by the fantastic service we got from Casey, our server. He was attentive to our every need without hovering or intruding on our dining experience. He was even proactive. Having overheard us wondering what the catch of the day was, he simply came over and answered that question. And, remember the people using their phone to light the menu? When Casey saw that, he took small lamps from the wall and put them on their table to help.

Highly recommended. Ask for Casey. 👍🏼

Excellent food and great service, as usual. Always worth a visit.

This was the first time I've used one of the Open Table rewards certificates. It was pretty simple, although the waiter did need to take my phone to the manager to show it. Maybe next time I'll print it.

The Pines is one of my favorite restaurants. Partly neighborhood hangout, partly summer tourist destination, partly late night lounge, partly theater… this place always has great food and drink. The bartenders are more mixologists and always willing to engage in conversation. A must stop in Rehoboth.

The food was of the best quality and artfully presented, it was cooked well, but it was just bland. We had shrimp dumplings that were overcooked on the bottom that had little taste, the halibut special that was good, but bland, and the seafood pot pie that was more exciting each bite. While I enjoyed the restaurant, I am think I will try other places before I return.

Good food and service; prices have increased recently. Not enough separation between tables for 2 and the bar. Too noisy for conversation even on a Monday night.

After having made several attempts to reserve a table during the head of the season with our luck, I was able to get a table last night and there was not sorry it was worth the wait. Everything about this restaurant is superb. Highly recommend it
