Crabby Dick's, the iconic Delaware City restaurant famous for its crab balls and Seaman sauce, will reopen June 9 after closing in January for renovations. The restaurant originally opened in in the year-old Delaware City Hotel building at 30 Clinton St. Buchheit, who once served as Delaware City's mayor, also co-owns several other restaurants, including the Crabby Dick's in Rehoboth Beach. The beach location remained open during renovations at the Delaware City restaurant. The original plan was to reopen on St. Patrick's Day weekend, but the date was pushed back to make sure the job was done "correctly," Buchheit said.
The waitress we had was amazing, she even gave my son her notebook because we had forgotten his at home. The food was great and just an all around great experience. The wait staff were friendly and the menu had variety and makes you laugh. The shirts and gift shop area is also fun to visit. The food however is just average, below average and there are a lot of other great options in the area for the same price. My son liked his cheeseburger, daughter enjoyed the pasta and wife liked her salad.
Tell them you found their Restaurant on Foodreference. In any business no one will deny that to be successful is often about location, location, location. In Key West that would be on Duval Street. You have to either build the proverbial better mousetrap as they say or serve some decent food in a nicely decorated friendly atmosphere.
What a fun place. But we go for the food. We had lunch one day, and went back for dinner another day. Both times the food was excellent.
