These 12 Restaurants In Delaware Have The Best Seafood EVER

Delaware is a seafood state – even though Maryland gets all the credit for its Old Bay and crab cakes, true Delmarvans know that there are plenty of places in Delaware that top even the Maryland crab houses and oyster bars, and we know that the best seafood in Delaware can hold its own against the best seafood anywhere. It’s no secret that Delaware Bay oysters are some of the best in the world! With so much of the state bordering the Delaware bay, and the Chesapeake just on the other side of the state, it’s no surprise that Delaware is a great place to find some amazing seafood restaurants.
