Fenwick Crab House
You can’t go on vacation in Delaware without having at least one meal hunched over a brown paper-covered table, cracking your way through piles of steamed Maryland crabs. Dinner at the legendary Fenwick Crab House is a full-on theatrical performance. Act I is for “lighter” stuff, like crab cakes and hush puppies. Then it’s intermission, which includes a costume change into a plastic bib with “CRAB” written across it. Things really take off in Act II, when heaps of seasoned crabs get dumped onto your table, which would make a worthy spread for your last meal on Earth. Close things out with an encore: a vanilla cone from Kohr Bros across the street.
