    McShea's Beach Pub

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 28, 2008

    McShea's is a nice, little Irish Pub on the Beach in Dewey. We stopped by about 1:30am for a few Irish Car Bombs ($6.00 each) on the way back to our hotel. McShea's is narrow with a large bar and a few booths, and more of a neighborhood bar than the meat market that is the rest of Dewey.

    McShea's also has food, including what is said to be some of the best crab cake soup around.

  • Rusty Rudder: What a surprise - a great club!

    by Bowildhax Updated Aug 12, 2007

    On a weeklong trip to Bethany Beach, husband and I (mid 40s) were looking for a dance club in the area. Thought we'd find a fun spot in Rehoboth, but nothing was open or interesting on a Thursday night. Being summer, we figured we'd find something interesting, but the only place obvious was the SharkBoard's Maxim Party in Dewey Beach. With a 300 person line of 20 somethings we decided to try Rusty's on Ruddertown.

    Surprise! Great venue - a full club with outside bars and a very packed band area. Inside, the DJ was excellent and the dance floor was large enough for the dancers and gawkers. Video screen along with the dance music was a fun addition to the evening - we caught up on alot of our video watching!

    Love to go back - a great club and perfect for party folks of all ages!

    Dress Code: No bathing suits - all kinds of outfits!

    1:30 am at the Rudder...

    The Rusty Rudder is another of the prime nightspots in Dewey. It is the place to go to dance the night away. They have live rock music several nights a week on their outdoor stage with huge area for dancing and talking. They also have an indoor dance area which plays mostly R&B and hip hop.

    Bottle and Cork

    Kristen & The Noise at the Bottle and Cork

    The Bottle and Cork is one of the top 2 or 3 most popular nightlife spots at Dewey. There are two large bars and a stage with a huge area for spectators to stand and watch the live rock music. Unfortunately, beer is served only by the can and the outrageous prices range from $3.75 for Bud and Miller to $4.75 for imports such as Corona. It is customary to deposit your empty can on the floor, and by the end of the night the place is littered with thousands that crunch under your feet as you walk or dance!

    The Starboard

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jul 13, 2004

    Busy night at The Starboard!

    The Starboard is a massive bar/club composed of several bars, one or two dance floors, and a few outside areas for smokers. It is one of the most popular places in Dewey, partly due to the rooms giving the place a smaller, more comfortable feel while each provides a slightly different atmosphere from the others. During my visit, Amstel Light was $3.00 in plastic bottles, glass bottles, or aluminum cans... stick to glass!

    Very good place to drink, talk, dance, and meet others.

    No cover charge.

    Repeatedly voted best nightspot in the entire state of Delaware!!!! Men's Journal Magazine listed The Starboard as one of the top 45 Beach Bars in the world...

    Rusty Rudder: Live Music Spot Overlooking the Bay

    by virtualpatrick Updated Jan 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Overlooking Rehoboth Bay, the Rusty Rudder (and Ruddertowne in general) is a great place for drinking, people watching, and music / dancing. I heard that the food is decent.

    When I went there was a live cover band playing people's faves for summertime dancing and hanging out. Crowd was very receptive to the band since they were a local band with a religious local following.

    Crowd is between 21-35 yrs old & cover charge varies on band/events that night.

    Dress Code: Casual
