Had the shrimp and grits tonight and it was awesome. It was made with Cheri so and was in a red sauce, a bit spicy but fantastic.

Overall, a wonderful dining experience. Our octopus was over cooked & we were surprised that the sardines were served in a tin when being in a beach town. Would have liked to know that the sardines were canned. Still good but not clear when ordering. The bar staff is very inexperienced & brought us the wrong bottle of wine- we didn’t catch it until the bill came & it was $77 instead of $48- both white & started with a V- not a huge deal & I don’t mind paying but it was a bit disappointing. The garden is amazing, the staff are very warm & welcoming just a bit inexperienced which is understandable given the pandemic. They gave us a free desert & our total bill was $240 for two- worth every penny in my opinion but a few bumps along the way that may discourage others. Don’t let it!

The atmosphere was nice; in fact, that was the best part. The service was okay but our entrees came before our salad so we cancelled the salad. Our meals were just okay, rather bland. The scallop dinner was $42 for 4 scallops, maybe one asparagus spear (cut up) with farro…overpriced. The swordfish itself was good, but the cucumber salad was bland and they forgot the olive tapenade on the fish. And though I️ asked for decaf coffee, I️ definitely got regular because I️ was up until 2am! Not cool. Though it wasn’t terrible, overall it was very disappointing. We won’t be returning.

This was our second time having dinner on the outdoor patio behind Good Earth, which is lovely and has a garden view. The menu offers a good range of interesting options that change seasonally, including vegetarian and fish dishes, and the food is well prepared. The wine list also introduces new options on a regular basis. Very much enjoyed the experience and will be back when we're in the area.

Beet salad was Excellent! (I usually have dressing on side but this was perfectly dressed.) Rockfish and scallops were very good. Side of faro was too earthy for our taste.
Service and location - great. A number of pesky flies bugged us.
Otherwise, I would recommend this place.

We’ve never had a bad experience at The Good Earth. It’s definitely our “go to” place when we have visitors or just want to treat ourselves. Be sure to try their unique specialty cocktails and no meal is compete without their peanut butter pie!

Good Earth is the BEST in Delaware! The food with Chef Nino and staff is consistently outstanding and creative. The new renovations are stunning. The garden and table design is very California. Staff is attentive (not pushy) and knowledgeable.
I’ve followChef Nino since he started at FISH ON under Matt Haley. He’s become the ALICE WATERS (which he’s tattooed) on his forearm.
This is the best kept secret in the tri state.
PS….every thing on the menu is delicious & the peanut butter pie is a must.

So I wanted to love this. The outdoor setting is lovely. When we sat down I noticed the sun was in my eyes and my sons eyes too and it was quite bright even with the umbrellas. There were only two other tables seated outside when we arrived and they were both in shade. Another table showed up about 5- 10 mins after us and the wait staff made a big deal about making sure there was no sun in their eyes by bringing extra umbrellas over, etc. I then promptly asked our server what could be done regarding the bright sun for us and he basically said nothing and that it would be bad for the next 20+ mins and then would be ok. He also suggested that two of us sit on each side of the two shady sides of our table. There were four of us on a very small four top that really should have been a two top anyways. I should have demanded another table but I was hot and hungry as were my kids. I did not appreciate the unequal treatment. Would not dine here again. The restaurant clearly knows this is an issue with certain tables based on the servers’ comments and they should fix the problem.

The food is amazing and so was our server! She was swamped! I don’t know if there wasn’t enough help or the host(esses) we’re not balancing the tables but she was a trooper!
Definitely try the tacos and save room for dessert!!

This place is a gem. The whole experience was casually elegant. We sat in the garden and the atmosphere was lovely and relaxing while the contemporary music on the outdoor speakers gave it a nice energy. The service was second to none. One member of our party has a number of food allergies and the staff went out of their way to accommodate and make the experience outstanding for everyone. And last, but not least, the food was truly excellent. This is now the one of my favorite restaurants and well worth the prices and venturing away from the beach for a visit.

Our first time, but certainly not our last! The restaurant had to pivot to move reservations indoors due to rain, so we couldn’t take advantage of the beautiful gardens. Nevertheless, on the patio the food and service were excellent!

Great evening, nice weather so we sat outside. Got a little buggy around sunset.
Food was ok, rockfish a little overcooked, salad basically a spring mix with little else. Appetizers may be the go to here, we had cheese with fig jam, some olives, all good.
We are going back soon to try more of the small plates and appetizers. I think that could be the ticket.

We took our adult sons and sat on the covered patio. Our waiter was really great! He let us enjoy the great drinks and food but was around if we needed him. Food was delicious. We had chicken make your own tacos. Each night is a different taco filler. The chicken was flavorful and we loved the other sides including the fresh guacamole. We also shared the flat iron steak. It was served rare and included a salad with the best blue cheese dressing we have ever had. Do not miss the bread appetizer. It comes with a butter and tomato jam! Yum! Leave room for dessert. The chocolate brownie and peanut butter chocolate pie were both delicious. We will be back.
