Hands down the best food and service I've had in years. Waitress Sarah was the BOMB. Great food, scallops were cooked to perfection. Every bite was fantastic. Drunken Clams to die for. Chef should be a Michelin star rated Chef. Can't say enough good things...More

Must try if you are a local sea food lover. We've been here a dozen times and will definitely return. The drunken clams, clam chowder, seared scallops, and all the other delicious options will not disappoint.

This is a nice little place, set in a suburban location. We started with the mussels caprese, which was a very generous portion of perfectly-cooked mussels in butter, white wine, basil, and sun-dried tomatoes. The mussels came with a side of garlic bread for dipping....More

Went there because I was working in the area. The Oysters Rockefeller were amazing (I had 2 orders!) and the Drunken Clams were very good. Prices were very reasonable and I will definitely be back next time in Delaware.

The Blue Crab Grill is very pricey for just average food. The local Chesapeake fried oysters were mostly bread and fairly bland. As we're the fried oysters. Their slow cooked dry rub ribs were underwhelming . Dry and overlooked with very little meat on the...More

What a great find for fresh seafood and ribs. The jambalaya was outstanding and super generous in portion. My husband had the ribs/crab cake combo and loved it. I passed on dessert but our party loved theirs and my waiter had the bartender make me...More
