You walk in and the bar is to the left and the restaurant is to the right. In the middle of the bar is the board with the current beer selections, a nice selection of east coast and local beers on tap, even though the taps don't match the beers. The bottled selection was good, totally not what I was expected, some harder to find stuff there. The bartender was knowledgable if you gave him a flavor he could make an acceptable recommendation. The selection let me sample some local stuff that I couldn't get in pa. The only thing that I didn't like was the glasses were all random and the taps were not correct.

Had dinner here and found it to be a very enjoyable experience. The atmosphere was clean much better than Dogfish head brew pub. Food was great, I had a BLT that was made with fired green tomatoes which was very tasty. My husband had the soft crab sandwich and loved it. Son had the Mahi Mahi sandwich and said it was very good. It looked yummy! Service was friendly and fast. Beer selection while above average could be better. The guys had the Troegs perpetual IPA and found it to be very good. Prices were very reasonable.We would go back if ever in the area again.

Wow...a seafood place that is also a beer bar. This is just the place I am looking for.

Stopped here for lunch during a beach visit. The beer selection was solid, with a wide range of styles that go good with seafood. My only suggestion would be to offer some more Belgians, but they did an okay job with that.

For beer, I ordered Orval, which was served in a Leffe tulip. For food, I split a dozen assorted oysters, and a plate of Belgian style mussels. The oysters were very good, but there weren't any local selections. The mussels were good, but I've had better. They were steamed in Belgian wit beer with other typical ingredients.

I would strongly reccomend this place, both for food and for beer. Even though it's on the same street as Dogfish Head, I would visit again if I'm in the area.

My girlfriend and I would often frequent Dogfish head when in Rehoboth. After reading about Fins we decided it was time to try something different.
After arriving at Fins at around 8 o'clock the somewhat small downstairs bar was full, no empty seats. Remembering what we read from other beer advocate reviews we decided to try the bar upstairs. The bar upstairs was empty other then and older guy (nice guy) getting out of the house while his wife played scrabble and us.
The tenders were very personable, attentive, and very casual. The beer selection was great. It included a weekly revolving tap list as well as an entire page of bottled beers to try.
We did not try any of the food, but after looking at the menu, we wish we would have.
We would highly recommend this place and plan on making it a must stop in Rehoboth.

I saw several reviews for this place on other websites regarding the quality of the seafood, but the fact it had a decent beer selection made this a must stop on my long weekend trip. Located on Rehoboth Avenue, it is a two story building that has bars on both levels. Warm woods with a nautical theme makes you feel welcome here. The place was quite crowded and we got one of the last available tables.

The waiter arrived with the menus and it had a great raw bar list, fresh fish listing, and great entrees on the front. The back of the menu showed me how good the beer selection was here. On tap was Ommegang Hennepin, Allagash Burnham Road, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Troegs Hop Back Amber, Southern Tier Creme Brulee, Allagash White, and Rogue Brutal Bitter. 26 American micros are available from breweries like Caldera, Laughing Dog, North Coast, Smuttynose, Stone, Southern Tier, and Sierra Nevada. Super Euro list includes Fantome, De Ranke, Duvel, Mikkeller, Sam Smith, Westmalle, and Chimay. Let's not forget three beers from Dieu Du Ciel including Peche Mortel. Absolutely an incredble list for a restaurant.

The seafood was incredibly fresh and the oyster selection was nice. All the dishes we had were top quality. The service was also prompt and friendly, and our waiter knew the beers offered.

Rehoboth is known for DFH, but this place has the best beer list I have seen in Delaware. This should be a must stop for any trip to Rehoboth.

I was pleased to have the chance to visit Fins Fish House & Raw Bar before closing. According to the bartender they have a restaurant license which is why they are only open til 10.

Atmosphere is very welcoming with soft lighting and nautically themed bar. The chalkboard accented with rope indicates the draft and bottle selections. There are antique oyster cans decorating the place and we sat next to a Paulaner barrel style cooler. They have a couple of flat screens to check out the game (Phillies beaten by Orioles) and they have glass jugs with different vodka infusions - watermelon, vegetable, pineapple and cherry.

The service is very friendly and the beer knowledge is evident. My friend ordered a Moylan's Hopsickle and a bartender came over to discuss the finer points of the beer and Flying Mouflan as well.

Quallity is top notch with excellent drafts and a good selection of wine for those who aren't necessarily beer fans. The have fresh bottles and the draft was of equal quality

The selection is good with all craft, no crap taps. They have a decent variety of bottles from the northeast as well as many from California. The chance to choose a quality Belgian ale like Westmalle Tripel, Orval or quality English ale like Coniston Bluebird bitter, not to mention the excellent Canadian choices from Dieu du Ciel - The list is too long to get into but you can't go wrong here.

Value is the watchword at Fins, you get the feeling they care about the product they serve and want to have you come back to share it w/ them again. I know I would be glad to have to chance to come back.
