Hubby wanted to swing by for dinner on our way home from the beach (Big Oyster Brewery is right before the road splits in two towards Cape Henlopen and since we were coming in from the state park beach, this was hubby's choice). Hubby had...picked up beer here before but I had never been and was sort of rolling my eyes at having dinner at a brewery with our teens and younger child but I was totally wrong.
We had to wait a half hour for a table but the outdoor area has a playscape, ping pong tables, corn hole and comfy cushioned deck furniture and tables. It was an easy wait with all the kids playing and keeping themselves busy.
Hubby and I enjoyed a couple of hazys and some ale while enjoying the live music and soon enough our covered patio table was ready.
We stuffed ourselves silly with pretzels, beer cheese, pulled pork sandwiches, salads and oysters, all while enjoying the nice weather. After he was done eating, our son ran off with another boy he met and they played ping pong and ran around the playscape. Our teens enjoyed the band and the food and hubby and I enjoyed our beer and meals and the whole atmosphere. Fun was had by all.
It's rare to find a place that keeps a whole family entertained, fed and happy but we found it at Big Oyster Brewery. We are definitely coming back!More
