4 New Restaurants to Visit at the Delaware Beaches in 2024

Looking for new dining to enjoy at the Delaware beaches this summer? Here are some spots that have opened over the past year.

We all have our favorite mainstays at the Delaware beaches, but if you’re looking for something different this summer, plenty of new dining has popped up over the last couple of seasons.

From upscale Italian fare to beachside tacos, here are some new places to try at the Delaware beaches this summer.

Tipsea Taco

Say hello to Tipsea Taco, a new addition to Dewey’s seaside casual dining scene. Tipsea Taco offers more than just a taco, though! Enjoy plenty of quick beachside bites like burgers, mini quesadillas, soft shell crab, breakfast items and smoothie bowls. You can also grab snackable fare like “tachos,” a fusion between traditional nachos and loaded tots. This spot just opened and is sure to make a splash in Dewey Beach this summer.

302 The Local

This speakeasy-themed bar and restaurant is the hottest new hangout to hit Rehoboth Beach. The menu is filled with mouthwatering dishes like a pork chop, crab cake platter and sandwiches named after notorious crime bosses. Enjoy speakeasy vibes, craft cocktails and great food while listening to 1920s tunes.

Via Sophia by the Sea

For upscale Italian dining, Via Sophia by the Sea is a must-try this summer in Bethany Beach. The Washington, D.C. favorite opened a location in Rehoboth last summer, and it’s the perfect eatery for a special occasion. Al fresco dining by the ocean doesn’t get much better than this.

Dinner entrees like crispy rockfish, seared dayboat scallops, chicken marsala and plenty of pasta options make this a great place to enjoy an Italian-inspired meal at the beach. Even if you had the chance to check this place out when it opened last year, this summer’s revamped dining menu has a lot to offer for first-timers and returning diners alike.

Cafe Pink Blossom

This breakfast spot in Lewes was a welcome addition to the local dining scene when it opened last May. After nearly a year of serving up breakfast favorites, it’s definitely a must-try. Patrons swear by the Benedicts and omelets. The menu also features plenty of indulgent sweet breakfast items like banana walnut pancakes and blueberry stuffed French toast.
