We stopped by for an early dinner this weekend. I didn't go inside, we ate under an awning overlooking a pedestrian alley just off of the main drag. Its a great place to people watch. With the shade and some fans blowing, it was pretty comfortable for an august afternoon.

They had perhaps ten beers on-tap, mostly local, plus scores of different bottles to choose from. I had a local wheat beer and a 60 minute, both of which tasted fresh. My $10 fish and chips was fine, but nothing special. I can see coming back here if the crowds at DFH are out of hand as is often the case. Good spot.

This place is hidden off Rehooth Avenue in a small local shop section. You first see a nice covered outdoor seating session was packed with patrons. As you walk through the front door you see a smallish bar on the left and more tables to the right. The bar has only about 8 seats or so and seems a bit cramped. Kind of a sloppy interior with loads of boxes stacked along the wall, but then again it is a deli.

There were 9 beers on tap here with a pretty good selection for the size of the place. DFH Shelter Pale Ale, 16 Mile Amber, Twin Lakes Greenville Pale, Brooklyn Summer, Blue Moon, Sam Adams Oktoberfest, and Guinness, and two macros. There were about 40 bottles to choose from too.

Service was prompt and friendly, and the bartender knew the local brewery offerings. I did not sample any food here.

Worthy of a stop if walking along Rehoboth Ave and you like a pint of beer or two.

I visit Rehoboth about twice a year with my girlfriend and every visit begins with our tradition of proceeding directly to Arena's for lunch. The selction is pretty good, though it's mostly bottle. The sandwiches and wraps and pretty great, though I usually design my own. The atmosphere is fairly typical on the inside but the outside seating is very nice down it's little alley away from the street. While the beer menu is certainly nice I'll admit I often get margaritas when there.. I sometimes see little purpose in drinking beer while in rehoboth if it's not dogfsh head straight from the brewpub. But other than that Arena's is a definite must.

Tucked away in a small shopping center off of Rehoboth Ave. A local's favorite spot for a great selection of draft and bottled beers. Sandwiches are good, fresh ingredients and they don't skimp on portions. Worth checking out over some of the other overpriced pizza and sandwich places in the area.

Beer selection includes everything from macros to Westmalle Triple and tons of choices in between. As expected, plenty of local beers are available including DFH which is only up the street. Dine inside or outside, TVs and darts available inside. I've only been there at night on 1 occasion in the off season so the crowd was light. I'd expect it's very different in the summer time.
