River side Restaurants


With fresh fish arriving every day from the Atlantic Ocean, the Chesapeake Bay and our local streams and rivers, "boat-to-plate" dining is one of the hallmarks of our regional cuisine and restaurant scene.

Harry's Seafood Grill prints a new menu every day to ensure freshness among its sashimi, oysters, lobsters and more. (One thing you can depend on: The lobster mashed potatoes are a menu staple, for a reason.) Big Fish Grill on the Wilmington Riverfront is more casual and great for families, while the sleek Deep Blue Bar and Grill downtown offers a great raw bar (in addition to the rest of the menu) that pairs nicely with an after-work martini.

Some think no trip to the MidAtlantic in season is complete without a stop at a local crab shack, but if a few hours of pickin' and bangin' crabs aren't in the cards, you'll still find wonderful crab cakes in restaurants throughout the area - made from real crab, with hardly any filler. Because that's the local standard.
