This Classic Waterfront Seafood Kitchen In Delaware Has Legendary Surf N Turf
Delaware has a long coastline – so it’s no surprise that our state has a lot of waterfront restaurants! One of the most timeless restaurants, the legendary Harry’s Seafood Grill, recently changed names to reflect a new owner (and longtime chef). No matter what you may call it, there’s no question that Banks’ Seafood Kitchen is one of the best places for a gourmet waterfront meal in Delaware.
In 2018, Harry's Seafood Grill changed names to become Banks' Seafood Kitchen, ensuring one of the top spots for surf n turf in Delaware will remain right here on the Wilmington Riverfront.
Though some may have a hard time getting used to the name, it's worth noting that David Banks has been head chef of Harry’s Savoy Ballroom, Harry’s Seafood Grill and Kid Shelleen’s for more than 30 years. Now that he owns the Seafood restaurant outright, he gave it a name that's been a long time coming.
The bright and airy interior of the restaurant was refreshed when the name changed, and somehow, it seems like more natural light than ever comes streaming into the dining room.
The food remains unchanged from time-tested recipes and seafood features that made this spot a legendary restaurant. Be sure to start off with an appetizer from the raw bar...
...and maybe even some lobster mac and cheese to really kick off an indulgent meal.
There is something for everyone to enjoy on the menu, so treat yourself! The panko fried oysters are served with a homemade creole mustard slaw, dijon espuma, and key-lime sour cream. Talk about culinary creativity!
Even their salads are over-the-top with gourmet accompaniments. This grilled shrimp and brussels sprouts salad is one of the lighter things you'll find on the menu, and it's a great way to kick off your meal.
As you may be able to tell by the name, the seafood is the star of this waterfront restaurant. Every fish dish is made with ingredients so fresh, they were practically just pulled from the water!
Along with their delicious and flavorful seafood entrees, you'll find a selection of steaks and other cuts and chops that are so tender they melt in your mouth. You'll have such a hard time deciding what to order!
No matter what you go for, though, try to save room for a house-made sweet treat to end the meal. Whether you like fruity or chocolatey, there's likely an option that will tempt your tastebuds.
Come enjoy a gourmet meal on the water at Banks' Seafood Kitchen and you'll fall in love at first bite!
