You’ll Never Forget Your Visit To The Most Haunted Restaurant In Delaware
The Delaware City Hotel was established in 1830, and at the time it was known as the Sterling Hotel. Now, it’s home to Crabby Dick’s, a goofy seafood restaurant that serves up delicious meals with a great view of the river. The good food isn’t the only draw, though – the building is said to be haunted by several ghosts. Are you brave enough to dine with them?
Crabby Dick's is located in the historic Delaware City Hotel, right on the river in charming Delaware City.
Find the restaurant at
30 Clinton St., Delaware City DE 19706
Today, Crabby Dick's is the place to go in Delaware City for crabcakes, steampots, hush puppies and more.
However, this popular spot has a spooky secret.
Established in 1830, The Delaware City Hotel was a popular tavern that hosted all sorts of people. Many soldiers stationed at nearby Fort Delaware would spend their off hours drinking in this spot. To this day, it's suspected that many of these former, rowdy soldiers haunt the grounds of their favorite tavern.
Loud, unexplained noises can often be heard coming from all areas of the old building. Doors open and shut on their own, and orbs appear in photos that guests have taken. Other than the soldiers, the original owner's wife often appears when men are dining here alone.
Check out this video from the owners of Crabby Dick's, where the talk about the paranormal happenings they've experienced in the historic building:
So dine, if you dare, along with the ghosts of this historic building.
The food is to die for, and the outdoor deck provides beautiful views - and the occasional rush of chilly air.
