by Kim Magaraci The Only Place In Delaware That Still Serves Up A Muskrat Dinner Is Southern Grille Of Ellendale
Delaware cuisine is normally a blend of southern and northern fare, and many of our restaurants serve up modern American fare and down-home comfort food. There’s even one place that still serves a distinctly Delmarvan dish, and if you ever find yourself craving a muskrat dinner, head on down to the Southern Grille of Ellendale.
The Southern Grille of Ellendale is one of Delaware's classic restaurants. This family-owned diner has been a local favorite for as long as we can remember.
The menu consists of delicious homestyle meals like chicken fried steak and comfort food sides like collard greens and mashed potatoes.
Southern Grille is known for a handful of dishes, including their flavorful and tender prime rib.
Their fried chicken is delicious and perfectly crispy, and pairs great with potato salad or mac and cheese.
Because we're near the coast, you can also find tasty seafood here. Crabcakes and soft shell crabs are both crowd favorites.
One of the most unusual things on the menu is also one dish the restaurant is famous for: their muskrat dinner.
The Southern Grille works with local trappers to find their catch, and then serves it up using their most famous house recipe. The muskrat dinner is only available occasionally, so keep an eye out for their next special.
You can also find another Delaware classic here: slippery dumplings. Delmarvans will tell you this is the only way to eat chicken and dumplings.
Save some room for a slice of homemade pie to wrap up a delicious meal of comfort food.
Visit the Southern Grille of Ellendale for a hearty homestyle meal that’s sure to please anyone looking for authentic Slower Lower cuisine. You can find their
full menu online here, and keep an eye on their Facebook page for news of the next muskrat dinner.
