Description: Notably the last restaurant on Coastal Highway in Fenwick Island, Delaware before entering Ocean City, Maryland, Delaware may have saved the best for last. The award winning Fenwick Crabhouse has been an icon in the resort for almost 50 years. Though being named a "favorite seafood dive in the US" for an unprecedented fourth straight year by Coastal Living Magazine, the Fenwick Crabhouse is hardly a dive. While the atmosphere is casual, they have an appealing menu of carefully prepared meals catering to a variety of tastes. You will find great wines, craft beers, their hallmark "The Perfect Crab cake" (NY Times), Delaware Magazine's 2011 "Best Ribs," and of course, those wonderful steamed crabs. Their mission is to provide a unique blend of creatively prepared dishes using fresh, locally grown foods and award-winning beverages to the table. The Fenwick Crabhouse is a seasonal restaurant off-season hours change before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. Call for hours.

We vacation in OC every year and this is one place we always eat at. The wide variety of Seafood choices and all you can eat crabs can be a little more money but worth it. I have eaten at all the most popular seafood joints in OC and this is the best. Just over the MD/DE line it is worth the drive. The service is always great, House dressing available for the salad (recommend), Childrens menu, Horseradish cheese dip served with crackers is a must try. average price is $22 for adult seafood and $10 for kids.
