We have been a couple of times. The food is your regular american seafood fare, mostly nicely done. We love the location also, it feels like a little excursion going there from Wilmington, the back routes. Are pretty scenic also. It could be nicely combined with an excursion to Fort Delaware.

Service is always great and we love to sit out on the deck during the summer time! Daily specials are AMAZING and affordable for the whole family to go out.

Quirky atmosphere, friendly staff. Went for lunch, service was good. Food was OK. Don't think I would recommend driving a long ways to get there, but if you're in the vicinity it's worth the stop.

Took my Dad out to lunch today. First time at Crabby Dick's. They had their shrimp special. Dad( who is 99) loves shrimp. The soup was very disappointing. We had the steamed, coconut and fried shrimp all you can eat plate. The shrimp were tasteless. We would never ask for more since what we had was so bad. Would never... More
