Happy Hour time! But where to? We have all been there— when you are in the mood to go enjoy some drinks or a bite, but can’t decide the spot. Problem solved! We have compiled some of the best Happy Hour spots near Rehoboth and the surrounding beach towns, whether you are looking for the best deal, the best cocktails, or the best food for happy hour, check out some of these restaurants in our area.


High Quality: The Pines, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Tito’s and Tangueray on a happy hour menu! Yes, you read that right. Enjoy $7 martinis made from some of your favorite quality liquors, or $5 House rail drinks, and reasonably priced wine and beer. Not to mention the happy hour appetizers; the Crispy Brussel Sprouts with orange soy glaze and pickled fresno peppers are always a delicious bite. Note that the chef’s offerings are subject to change, but we have never gone wrong with the menu at this spot. Daily 5-7:00pm


Creative Cocktails: Drift, Rehoboth Beach, DE
The mixologists at Drift give you beautifully crafted cocktails. Their flavor profiles are unique and inspired. Not only are they well balanced drinks, they are so pretty to look at. While it may be a newer spot in town, they are doing happy hour in Rehoboth Beach right! $2 off craft cocktails and $1 off glasses of wine. In the warmer months, they offer an outdoor happy hour experience on the terrace. Want a suggestion of what cocktail to try? The Sazerac, a cognac drink, is an impressive, smooth sipper and the gin-based Thai-Me-Up is an aromatic experience. 
Wednesday-Sunday 4-5:30pm


Entertaining and Delicious: Lefty’s Alley and Eats, Lewes, DE
Voted Best Happy Hour by Delaware Today, Lefty’s is a fabulous option for tasty bites, drinks, and entertainment. This is not your typical bowling alley. Lefty’s is an upscale experience. They just opened a new lounge and bar area called The Spare Room that is perfect for an after work cocktail with friends. The added bonus to this happy hour is getting to enjoy ax throwing, top golf, duck pin bowling, or private karaoke (maybe once you’ve had a few $4 drafts)! 
Monday-Friday 3-6:00pm
 

Cost Effective: Irish Eyes, Lewes and Milton, DE
This is a local favorite: cheap drinks and a wide variety of food options make this a solid happy hour spot when you want a more casual night out. Can you beat a chilled mug of beer for $2.50? House wine for $3.75 and rail mixers and shots for only $3.50?! Seriously, this is one of the cheapest happy hours near the Delaware Beaches we have found and both locations are by the water. Monday-Friday 3-7:00pm

 

Seafood Perfection: Fin’s Ale House and Raw Bar, Rehoboth Beach, DE
There’s nothing better than quality seafood when you are by the beach. Located off of Rt. 1, this is a great happy hour stop while visiting the area. They offer local raw bar options like 1/2 dozen raw oysters for $9. Other seafood features include 1/2 lb steamed shrimp, fish and chips, or fish tacos all for only $8. They also offer non-seafood options on their Happy Hour menu. This is one of the earlier and longer happy hours offered locally! Football Sunday specials are also combined on Sunday’s happy hour.
Monday-Thursday 3-6:00pm, Friday and Sunday 11:30-6:00pm 


Good Deal: Taco Reho, Rehoboth, DE
Taco Reho is no longer just a food truck; in fact, now they serve drinks! Check out their rock n’ roll decor and fun atmosphere as you enjoy some authentic south of the border flavors. All of their corn tortillas are made in house (you can watch them being pressed) which leads to absolutely delicious tacos. During happy hour, $10 gets you 2 tacos and a beer. (Typically one taco is about $6, so this is a great deal!) They also have $5 taquitos, $1 off beers and cocktails, and $2 off margaritas. Some go to taco choices of ours are the Baja Fish (so crispy and fresh), the Buffalo Shrimp (it is wrapped in crispy cheesy goodness), and the Pork Carnitas (because pineapple salsa). Monday-Friday 3-6:00pm


Fun Flights: Dewey Beer Co, Harbeson, DE and Dewey Beach, DE
During the “off-season” Dewey Beer Co offers specials during Happy Hour! Brewed locally, DBC makes some incredible sours (try the Secret Machine) as well as IPAs and lagers. They have two locations in the Delaware Beach area: Harbeson, DE (near Milton, DE) and, of course, one in Dewey Beach, DE. Their Harbeson location is offering $2 off 20oz Lagers and $1 off 13oz Fruited Beers or IPAs. For food at this spot, you can grab a pizza next door at Pizza Machine, or brig your own food. At the Dewey Beach location, try something off of their menu, like 15 wings for $15 on Thursdays! Monday-Thursday 3-6:00pm


Best Late Night: Stingray, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Who says Happy Hour has to be early evening? Try Stingray in Rehoboth for the perfect night
cap! The ambiance is a vibe, with a lounge area filled with sleek leather couches. After 9pm, the “Late Night Menu” is offered. Some of their most popular sushi rolls are only $9. Try the Rehoboth Roll, a tasty cooked tempura salmon option. Another favorite snack of ours is their steamed edamame with a soy ginger dipping sauce for just $5. For drinks, they have $1 off wine, rail drinks, and draft beers. Additionally, they have a $7 “mai-tai” cocktail and $15 sake flights. They also offer some of the same specials during a more traditional happy hour daily, so you don’t have to stay up late to get the deals. Happy Hour- Daily, Open-6:00pm, Late Night- Daily, 9pm-Close
