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.

Banks Seafood Kitchen and Raw Bar 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 a creative and fresh fish item can always be found on the menu La Fia or Domaine Hudson, staples in the downtown restaurant scene. .

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.
