Nothing says summer in southern Delaware like delicious barbecue. As soon as the weather heats up, stands advertising chicken and ribs appear all over the county. While it’s great to be able to grab your meal and go, it’s even better to have a place to sit down and thoroughly enjoy every ounce of seasoning and sauce the chef has prepared. Near Georgetown, that place is Fat Daddy’s BBQ & Grille. We sat down with owners Jeff and Brenda Frey to chew the fat about how Fat Daddy’s came to be, their tips for restaurant success, and their future plans for the business.

There are lots of places to enjoy a crabcake on the Delmarva Peninsula, but the Crabcake Factory’s Executive Chef and CEO Johnny Brooks argues that his are the best around — and he has the awards and recognition to back up his claims. The Crabcake Factory Bayside overlooks the Assawoman Bay on the West Fenwick Waterfront. The original Crabcake Factory is located just a short drive away on 120th Street in Ocean City, Maryland, but the Bayside location is building its own following of loyal customers.

In south-central Kent County, the town of Felton’s tree-lined streets aren’t exactly a spitting image of Tuscany, Italy, which is one of the most famous wine-producing regions in the world. That doesn’t bother Pete Pizzadili though. The owner of Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery located near the small town has created what he calls a piece of paradise along Peach Basket Road.

Breweries are popping up all over the First State and one of the newest places to grab a cold craft beer is 3rd Wave Brewery in Delmar, which opened in late 2012. The brewery offers four house beers and many others on a seasonal basis. Delaware Living sat down with Co-owner and Manager Lori Clough to chat about her unique brews.

Q: What’s the story of how you opened the brewery?

2 lbs salmon, cut into 4 pieces

1 tbs olive oil (I used light extra virgin olive oil)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp paprika powder

1 tsp onion powder

½ tsp ancho chili powder


1 large yellow onion

⅔ cup Panko breadcrumbs

1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning

½ teaspoon paprika

¼ teaspoon sea salt

2 egg whites

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a large knife to cut off the top, about ¼-inch of the onion until a few of the inside layers are exposed. Be careful to cut the top side, not the root side. Peel the outermost layer of the onion down to the root, leaving the root as is.

When you think about dining on the water, Laurel isn’t normally the first place that comes to mind. But Chef Ryan Cunningham is working hard to put Abbott’s on Broad Creek on the map. Located in downtown Laurel, the young restaurant has had a busy year-and-a-half since its opening in December of 2013. Abbott’s had already made a name for itself with Abbott’s Grill in Milford, but bringing people to a new location was a welcome challenge for Chef Ryan.
