Delicious Fresh Fish

We have purchased fish from several fish markets in the area. We finally discovered the South Bethany Seafood Market. It is a little bit of a ride but well worth it. The fish has been fresh and when we purchase prepared fish it has always been done to our specifications.

Food is wonderful and they'll even cook your lobsters and get them ready to be served when you get home. Also have outstanding coleslaw.

Twice while in Bethany for our vacation, we ordered clams, shrimp, and crabs. All were steamed for us so we picked the order up and brought it all home. They were so good, we did it twice.

Every kind of seafood available and fresh. Pricey, but good for fresh seafood selections. Also some pastries and yummy looking desserts.

Every year (twice a year) we look for seafood to cook near Bethany Beach and every year we check out all the local sources of fresh seafood and every year we end up buying our (clearly) fresh crabs, clams, shrimp, fish from South Bethany Seafood. By far their produce is fresher and bigger (in terms of shrimp, clams, crab) than... More

We usually get our crabs from Tom and Terry's (best prices around and always excellent), but they had closed for the season. So we made the mistake of trying South Bethany Seafood. Last week we got large, heavy males steamed for $38/dozen from Tom and Terry's - outstanding. The ones we got last night from South Bethany Seafood were $45/dozen... More

I recently tried south Bethany seafood market and I am sorry I ever did. I picked up two crab cake dinners and a steamed shrimp dinner. Got home, opened the styrofoam and wondered where the other half of my crab cake dinner was. I almost checked the car! They advertise 1/4 pound, but I would be hard pressed to call... More

This place is horrible. We ordered carry out and it was a complete sham. The crab cakes are not 1/4 pound as advertised and the steamed shrimp aren't shelled and not deveined. They prey on unsuspecting tourists and should be ashamed of themselves.
