Henlopen City Oyster House is a full service restaurant and seafood bar in Rehoboth Beach, serving the local population and visitors year-round. Owned and operated by Chris Bisaha and Joe Baker, the restaurant contributed to Rehoboth Beach being chosen in 2014 as one of 10 top beaches by National Geographic.  The only restaurant to be mentioned, the article noted:  "For the locavore: After a day at the beach, head to Henlopen Oyster House for a platter of briny oysters..." In a July, 2015 article published in Washingtonian magazine, the writer chose HCOH to be among the top five restaurants in Rehoboth Beach, and noted: "What Hank’s Oyster Bar is to D.C., Henlopen City is to Rehoboth—a convivial nightly party."  The eatery has a huge repeat business and a large following from the Washington, D.C. area.  On any given summer evening starting at 5 p.m., the restaurant is at capacity with a waiting time of one and a half to two hours.  .
