Description: The Starboard Restaurant is Dewey's most famous venue for fun, great times, and tremendous service! It has been home-awayfrom-home for most Dewey Beach visitors over our 55+ year history. The Starboard truly holds a special place in more people's hearts than anyone could ever imagine! The Starboard was originally built and opened by Duke Duggan around 1960 and has gone through several changes over its years. Purchased and run by the Hearn family during the late 80's and early 90's, Chip Hearn grew The Starboard into a nationally known hot spot. Purchased by current owners Steve 'Monty' Montgomery and his partners in 1999, The Starboard's popularity is now off the charts as it has grown into a national phenomenon! From famous Suicide Sundays to Eggs Delmarva and wonderful breakfasts and nightly entertainment - both on stage and with long-time DJ personalities - you will always find a crowd of people enjoying themselves at The Starboard. Wear Starboard merchandise anywhere in the country and you are bound to have someone mention how much fun THEY had when last in Dewey Beach! There isn't enough room to list all the awards from over the years - most impressive have been the infamous Cornerstone Award in 2010 by the Delaware Restaurant Association showing the level of community service The Starboard has contributed. Our local Chamber of Commerce awarded The Starboard its Business of the Year in 2009, and Delaware Today magazine readers annually award The Starboard as Dewey Beach's best restaurant, best downstate bar, best Sunday brunch, best staff, best event (Running of the Bull), amongst so many others. Enjoy The Starboard. It's truly a place thanks to so many wonderful people enjoying themselves throughout all these years... Find out for yourself just how comfortable and fun all facets of The Starboard Restaurant can be!

This is a popular beach bar in Dewey with a huge following. It gets insanely crowded with a wide demographic from college age to active adult/retiree. Popped in during a bike ride in the off season and ordered a sandwich and chips at the bar. Nothing to write home about. I heard the breakfasts were good but have not tried those yet. This place is also famous for their bloody Mary's. Eh.

The burgers were properly done (Medium) and big enough to satisfy without being wasteful (a full 10oz). A bucket of fries that were also well done and several cold beers (ice cold) brought by attentive and fun staff made this a great stop "for a quick bite"!

Great local bar with friendly service with a smile. Winter visit with warm food and friendly atmosphere. Megan was an excellent bar tender that introduced us to some of the locals and we enjoyed their company. Good times and will return soon.
