Bramble & Brine Ratings and Reviews
Will keep coming back!
This is our fifth time coming to Bramble and Brine. I would keep coming back each time. The atmosphere has continued to improve with simplistic decor and the seating is always good anywhere in the restaurant. The food is always outstanding, creative, and using local resources as much as possible. The service is great. They can recommend any wine on the menu with appropriate pairings. There is a great beer selection, and the mixed drinks are creative and tasty. I highly recommend to try the three course meal with wine pairing.

Third time visiting, best dinner and service yet!

Bramble and Brine has really turned into one of the best restaurants in town. We loved the new look and atmosphere. The food could not have been better. We recommend the duck dish! Superb! You can not skip dessert there. One of our favorite spots in town!
Still the Best
My favorite restaurant in Rehoboth. Always head and shoulders above many other establishments.
This is one of those 'food as art' places, and despite the pretension, we loved the food. The service was friendly and unstuffy and that went a long way toward making the evening enjoyable.
Joe and Team knock it out of the park, yet again!
We started at the Bar with Anna, enjoyed the happy hour specials for drinks and appetizers. She makes a yummy vodka martini. My husband and I enjoyed the chicken fried oyster appetizer and the 5 tastes for $20 appetizers the octopus was my favorite, followed by the duck mortadella and pimento cheese spread on their version of an everything bagel chip. Pickled Salmon and one other tastes were divine. We sat in the room by the kitchen, waited on my Mike. I had the halibut for dinner and my husband had the spring chicken. We enjoyed both. We shared a bottle of AR, an Argentinian Blend. Friday night they have 25% off bottles of wine. Yummy and great presentation.
Creative menu, excellent meal.
Wonderful presentation of delicious meal. The halibut was outstanding. Dessert was the highlight of a fantastic evening

Great service, attractive setting, interesting menu.
A wonderful and enjoyable meal. Interesting dishes. Mine was a halibut, excellently prepared with quinoa and other veggies. Small but pleasant wine list. Very attractive setting.
One of the best in Rehoboth
We had been meaning to try Bramble & Brine for a while, and took the opportunity Easter Sunday. While the menu is a little 'foodie', we all really enjoyed the quality, and presentation for each course. Our wine selections were great (helps to have oenophile friends), and the options were varied enough to satisfy them. Would certainly highly recommend for a special occasion, as the prices were on the medium/high end, but even with that taken into account, we still felt that the prices were very reasonable based on the quality of the meal and the experience.
Wonderful food and servicw
This restaurant is not for people who like large portions and common food choices. I fit neither of those categories, and we loved it form soup to spaghetti to pink grapefruit cake to duck. It was a wonderful evening and meal in every respect. A foodie's dream.
I must admit that after reading some of the reviews, I was a bit concerned about going there.After dining there, I was pleasantly surprised and thought that "those people"must have eaten elsewhere. It's a bit pricey,but not over priced. Our meals were 5 star to say the least and so was the service!
The restaurant was all the talk when it first opened, so I was looking forward to trying it, now that has re-opened. We opted for the tasting menu (at $75 each), with a bottle of wine (not the pairings). Each course was pretty much a disappointment, some things were fair at best (the fluke, the short rib and the soup), others were okay to good (the Ferment dish, and the creme caramel, for example), but none of the courses were wonderful, or even excellent. In retrospect, I wish we had simply sampled different small, medium and large plates instead of choosing the tasting menu. The service was attentive, so at least that was a plus. We left, spending roughly $200 on nothing memorable at all.
Felt like we were traveling abroad
I can't remember the last time I had such an interesting meal in a U.S. restaurant. Great for adventurous foodies, and because they have so many small plate and charcuterie options, we got to try a lot of things. The wait staff was knowledgeable of the menu and happy to make suggestions. Their drinks were yummy, too - we had the Granada, a tequila drink, and liked it a lot. They have a tasting menu, but we thought it sounded like too much food, so we picked a la carte and had a lot of fun with it. Service was great, too. It wasn't too busy, so we didn't rush and they never brought anything out before the previous course was cleared away. Quite a nice change of pace from most restaurants these days.

Nice atmosphere and service. I thought the menu was limited and my entree was a little small for the price.
Truly a delight from start to finish. Our dining experience exceeded our expectations. Warm, welcoming, modern, artistic atmosphere. Cozy bar with creative and well made cocktails. Attentive, knowledgeable, and classy waitstaff. And of course our meals. Inventive, creative, unique, delectable. All incredibly presented. Loved this place. Superb!

In my humble opinion, this restaurant is not what it used to be. When it first opened, we dined there a couple of times; and, I very much enjoyed my meal. This time the food was mediocre; although my husband enjoyed his tender duck. I think my tastes are more plebeian and simpler than the current menu. Bramble and Brine may be a good restaurant for foodies.
The restaurant was very nice and the food was good
We got the tasting menu which was good but not excellent. The wine pairing was nice, but quite expensive. We should have stuck with getting something off of the menu and going with a favorite. It was valentine's so probably not a good choice to get the tasting menu. We had a soup which was cold and the fish was very salty. The beef was excellent. I would recommend this place for a small group or two people only as tables are very close to one another. The cocktails were excellent.
We were there with 6 people after we ordered I t took a long time the manger came over said something happened with computor never sent order to Kitchen we understood that but he offered to get drinks if we wanted one so we all ordered but to our surprise and disappointment we wherechared for them . we all cross the restaurant off our list.
Ahhh! It's back!
For their opening weekend, the chef focused on flavors and unique offerings. I had the octopus and who knew that it would be considered another white meat?!? So tender and flavorful...I was able to cut it with my fork. The cocktails were superb, especially the Granada and the Manhattan. I highly recommend the duck. We will definitely be back.

Lovely dinner. My OK review of service was because they were slow, but it was really crowded and of season so that has to be a tough adjustment.

Great way to start the new year with dinner in Rehoboth ! Loved B & B!
A beautiful New Years Eve spent in a lovely ambiance and well presented dishes. The staff was attentive and pleasant. My chocolate desert was exceptional. Enjoyed spending a moment watching the kitchen staff through a special window. Would do it again.
Such a beautiful restaurant. Excellent, attentive service without being intrusive. The scallop appetizer was incredible! Possibly the best scallops we have ever had! The venison and the lobster were both very, very good. The desserts were amazing. The decor is wonderful, and the ambiance felt just right.
"Xmas Eve 'Tasting Menu' a Real Treat...but..."
Booked early at this elegant Rehoboth eatery...opted for 2 'tasting menus' (6 courses, $65.); 4 courses were truly excellent (poached oysters, seared tenderloin, osso bucco, and scrumptious dessert), the soup and rabbit just so-so. The French Press coffee was a nice touch (but $6. extra?), and our excellent Spanish wine (Godelia Mencia) good value at $36. It was a busy night, our personable server, Mike, did well juggling multiple tables but 2 of our courses reached our table ahead of the necessary 'tools' (spoon/fork/knife)...perhaps more coordination needed between kitchen & server (or adding silverware ahead for 'tastings'. Recommend interior seating to avoid busy, trafficked entry-way; this is a really good dining location...and could be outstanding with consistent attention to detail
First ime dining here
Excellent in every way. Reservations were honored and checked by phone and level of courtesy was wonderful. This was Christmas Eve when many dining places are closed here and those open are limited in menu and service. This was was tops in every respect and I note the friendliness of the others eating in engaging near-by tables. This will be a frequent stop until summer.
Great food and atmosphere--desert amazing!
All food excellent from butternut squash to lobster to pork to chocolate desert. Atmosphere was private and allowed for talking, service was attentive. Prices a little high but worth it.
Nice environment but....
The ambiance was fantastic! I was disappointed with the menu selection but this could have been due to the off season. I will certainly try them out again with hopes of a better selection.
Wonderful dining experience
We were celebrating our anniversary and our dining experience was perfect. The food was deliciously prepared, beautifully presented and served professionally. Our server allowed us time to enjoy each course. The wine we selected was reasonably priced and excellent. A wonderful evening with dinner.
Don't know how quiet it would be if the front room is full.
Nice but expensive
Very limited menu - mostly Duck dishes. Service as poor to fair. Expensive for the meal.
We "found" Bramble & Brine on Open Table looking for a place to eat when we went to Rehoboth for the weekend. The deckle and duck were amazing, topped off with a great dessert and a delicious Spanish wine. The service was attentive, and the jazz in the background was just loud enough to be heard, but not intrusive. We will definitely return!
Fine Dining in Rehoboth Beach
Great food and service. Can't wait to return for a second time and try the items we debated but chose others. We enjoyed the Butcher Board app and soup of the day. The octopus and salmon choices were great. The rabbit entree was also very good. As was the Tangerine Pot De Crème dessert.
From Five Stars to Two
The usual nice experience at the bar did not translate to table service. Our wait was long, our wine pour was meager, our waiter was indifferent, and our bronzini looked suspiciously different from those served at nearby tables (trout perhaps). We have been singing the praises of this place all summer. No more.
Fantastic Overall Experience
My husband and I were on an a baby-free night out and had seen some great reviews about this restaurant. We were not disappointed. Everything from our drinks to our dessert and everything in between was beyond expectations. Our waiter, Mike, was extraordinary and offered up great suggestions. We would highly recommend this restaurant and we hope to return when we get another night out to ourselves.
Best Restaurant in Rehoboth
After going to so many mediocre restaurants in Rehoboth it was refreshing to find one that is actually good!!!! We were welcomed in with open arms. The background music was light and very nice. Our waitress was terrific and helped with the selections.....and the food.....AMAZING. I will go back next time I"m in Rehoboth
Great experience and will be back again soon!
This was our first time but won't be our last. Our entrees were outstanding - the steak and duck. Great taste and prepared exactly as we requested. The apps and deserts were unique. The staff were very friendly and attentive. There are a number of great places in Rehoboth and this is one of them. Enjoy!

Bramble & Brine is one of the best restaurants in the area. We dine here frequently and are never disappointed. Everyone in my party raved about the duck. I had the salmon, which was outstanding. You can't miss when you dine here.
good food. overpriced wines
We were greeted warmly then shown to the worst table they had (with many others empty). When I complained we were quickly moved into another room and from that point the meal was very satisfactory The tasting menu was interesting, balanced and included an excellent dessert.
Had high expectations for this place but it greatly disappointed. The atmosphere was stuffy and hot, the food was mediocre. My dish was very salty and the salads had no dressing. Lot of better places in town.
