Simple home cooking at its best… served in a casual, bistro-style dining room or on our outdoor, garden patio. A year-round local favorite, since 2009, offering home-made food, that’s always fresh. A lively mix of locals and tourists, gathering for dinner in the dining room, or drinks at the bar. Just a 10 minute walk from the ocean, on Rehoboth Avenue. We also have some free parking behind our restaurant and free parking (after 5pm) on the street behind our building. Late night bar entertainment includes: live music or Karaoke. Owners John & John are regularly on the premise, making sure you have a pleasant experience. “We strive to make Rigby’s a comfortable place, for all to feel welcome!” “We encourage you to have some good food and relax… after all, you’re at the beach!”

Date night with the hubby we stopped in and enjoyed their Spanish onion soup which was not salty and was delicious. For our entrees we had chicken parmesan which was a very generous portion and the grilled salmon with garlic butter which was cooked perfectly and the roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus were delicious. Great holiday atmosphere and excellent service!

One of the most pleasant dining experiences in Rehoboth Beach. Everything we ordered was delicious from the burgers and fries, and chicken parmigiana to the Ahi tuna, chocolate mouse and blueberry pie. The service was exceptional and they even took reservations. Thanks Ricky for a great night out with the family. Can’t wait to go back.

The food was acceptable for a breakfast joint, not exactly gourmet but not bad. The prices were ok and the service was pretty good. All in all fine for a getting out of town breakfast after a great dinner.

We had a reservation for 7 pm and were seated immediately. The two waitstaff, Bob and Ricki were prompt and incredibly accommodating.
Drink orders were accurate.
Food was Delicious!
I had tuna and the cook accommodated my request to not have it as raw as often is done. it was fresh tasting. I was told they buy it locally. Others had flat bread pizza. Chicken parm and tortellini. all were excellent with generous portions.
Appetizers were also generous and delicious.
Cheesecake was house made and yummy.
Would definitely return!

Delicious and unpretentious dinner.

Scallops, French onion, crab egg rolls and seafood cakes were to die for !

Excellent waitress and live music.
