There was a time when dining at the best restaurants required coats and ties. We’ve long since said goodbye to white-gloved servers and hello to casual dress—even as we’ve welcomed food that is better than ever. Here are the places where you need to eat now.

 

KICK BACK WITH A BREW

By their natures, brew pubs and ale houses are hip places for creative food and low-key atmospheres, a combination that gave birth to the term gastropub.

Chelsea Tavern

Even when The Grand Opera House is dark, the scene at Chelsea hops—in more ways than one. There are more than 30 craft beers on tap and more than 200 bottled beers, and they run the range of styles. Grab a burger made with Hereford beef with beer-braised onions, or fly high with pan-seared duck breast served with confit potatoes, pearl onions and a cherry-balsamic glaze.

821 N. Market St., Wilmington, 482-3333

 

Big Oyster Brewery

A newbie in Lewes, the brewpub has 16 house-made beers on tap and a great view of the stainless steel brewing tanks from the bar. Take your brewski outside for a game of cornhole or ping-pong beside the farm fields. Big Oyster is part of the Fins Hospitality Group, but the restaurant’s menu covers more than seafood.

1007 Kings Hwy., Lewes, 644-2621

 

Brick Works Brewings & Eats

Items are “made from scratch—from plate to glass.” No wonder. Eric Williams of Mispillion River Brewing is behind the beer, and seasoned restaurateur Kevin Reading is also a partner. Build your own “mac” by adding crab, shrimp, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, brisket and-or jalapeños to classic macaroni and cheese. (Another Brick Works is planned for Long Neck.)

230 S. Dupont Blvd., Smyrna, 508-2523

 

Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats

Now housed in an eye-catching new building, this brewpub put Delaware on beer-lovers’ maps. Sit in the courtyard and try an experimental beer—Dogfish Head tests its creations here before releasing to stores. Pizzas have always been popular, but the new structure has an open kitchen dedicated to a wood-burning oven. And don’t Dogfish Head’s Chesapeake & Maine restaurant next door.

320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth, 226-2739

 

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

Born in Newark in 1996, Iron Hill opened a Rehoboth Beach site in May, bringing its total to three in Delaware—each with an outdoor dining area. (There are 16 and counting.) Iron Hill is so chill that you can take a yoga class in some locations. Regulars love the award-winning beer, large menu and consistently well executed food.

620 Justison St., Wilmington Riverfront, 472-2739; 147 E. Main St., Newark, 266-9000; 19815 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 260-8000

 

Rehoboth Ale House

Steps from the boardwalk, the ale house is known for draft beer and live music. But don’t miss chef Matt Reardon’s food. Menu items such as crab cakes with lemon-caper tartar and flat-iron steak might surprise you given some diners wear beach coverups.

15 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 278-7433

 

Stewart’s Brewing Co.

Since 1995, the state’s first brewpub has been a destination for hopheads, as well as a neighborhood family restaurant. Look for the unexpected, such as the wild game burger and the 219 burger, made with locally raised beef. (The steers were fed on spent grain from the brewery.)

216 Governor’s Place, Bear, 836-2739

 

Trolley Tap House

The tap house’s garage-like windows give diners a view of the Trolley Square scene. The menu sticks mainly to items you can share—funnel cake fries and Buffalo tots—burgers and sandwiches.

1616 Delaware Ave., Wilmington, 652-2255

 

Washington Street Ale House

The late Darius Mansoory was among the first to spot the microbrew mania when he opened this restaurant. Now owned by the Big Fish Restaurant Group, the restaurant offers a welcome selection of seafood items. Happy hour is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the weekend brunch is big in Midtown Brandywine.

1206 Washington St., Wilmington, 658-2537

Back Porch Café

Now in its 45th season, the Back Porch offers exquisite cuisine served on white linen—inside, that is. The preferred tables are on the tree-covered patio, which would look at home in most Caribbean towns. For a good deal, visit at lunch and get the turkey burger with Middle Eastern spices.

59 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3674

 

Bluecoast Seafood Grill + Raw Bar

Like fraternal twins, the two Bluecoast restaurants each have an individual look and personality. The original in Bethany Beach has the low-slung appearance of a beach cottage on a bay. The wine list can soar into the hundreds for big spenders, but there are plenty of affordable options. The Rehoboth site has areas for breezy dining, including a patio with a bar and a firepit, as well as a covered porch.

30904 Coastal Hwy., Bethany Beach, 539-7111; 30115 Veterans Way, Rehoboth Beach, 278-7395

 

Domaine Hudson

One of Delaware’s culinary sensations, Domaine Hudson has a bar that is a warm and cozy place to share a charcuterie and wine flight. The restaurant’s Date Night promotion features a bottle of wine and a three-course dinner for $95 a couple.

1314 N. Washington St., Wilmington, 655-9463

 

Fork + Flask at Nage

If you haven’t been to Nage in some time, you’re in for a surprise. A large bar dominates one side. The cocktails are creative, and the menu is relaxed. Chef Sean Corea makes things fun by giving diners a culinary trip around the world on Tuesdays. (The regular menu is also available.)

19730 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 226-2037

 

Harry’s Savoy Grill

2020 Naamans Road, Wilmington, 475-3000

 

Heirloom

Meghan Lee’s restaurant, housed in an old Victorian home, and chef Matthew Kern’s seasonal menus have been garnering kudos from regional restaurant critics. In warm weather, sit on the patio, which has a view of the Zwaanendael Museum.

212 Savannah Road, Lewes, 313-4065

 

House of William & Merry

Owned by Bill Hoffman and Merry Catanuto, this restaurant serves some of the finest food in the area. Nevertheless, entering the farmhouse-turned-restaurant feels as though you’re going to visit friends. Maybe that’s because the couple has long lived upstairs. The bar is next to the open kitchen if you want dinner and a show.

1336 Old Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, 234-2255

 

Nantucket’s

Along with the classics, such as filet mignon, crab cakes and the famous bouillabaisse, there are “schmoozin” selections, including Nanny’s crab cake sandwich, party wings tossed in chipotle Buffalo sauce and a spicy chicken BLT.

601 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, 539-2607

Patsy’s Restaurant

Opened in 2000, Patsy’s sports a Key West sensibility and a carefree attitude. Mother-daughter chefs Patsy and Robin Rankin, however, are serious about the food. They use local and organic ingredients whenever possible. Grab a seat on the porch, and try the whole flash-fried red snapper. Fried chicken is the Sunday special.

121 Campbell Place, Bethany Beach, 537-2433

804 Brandywine Blvd., Wilmington, 761-9175

 

Buckley’s Tavern

If you’ve lived in Wilmington long enough, you know the drill: Buckley’s is the place where pickup trucks park next to Porsches and their owners take a seat at the bar to exchange pleasantries. The menu under executive chef Tom Hannum is a mix of comfort foods and creative dishes.

This Route 1 sister to Go Fish! pays homage to owner Alison Blythe’s native country. The fish and chips, of course, are a must. So is tandoori chicken and mashy peas. Save room for the sticky toffee pudding.

18388 Coastal Hwy., Lewes, 644-2250

 

Goat Kitchen & Bar

Without much fanfare, Goat has become the hangout for folks in Arden. No wonder. Owner David Weir’s menu appeals to a broad spectrum, including vegetarians and pescatarians. If you like bacon, try the fried green tomato BLT.

This longtime Main Street restaurant is a homegrown success story. It’s owned by Sasha Aber, who grew up in Newark and went to the University of Delaware.

126 E. Main St., Newark, 266-6993

124 Delaware St., New Castle, 322-7675

208 Social

Housed in a cottage-like space, 208 Social’s menu intrepidly runs from shakshouka to bulgogi to kimichi. Or go for organic chicken, a double-patty burger or fish-and-chips. Signature cocktails are the cherry on the sundae.

Agave

You can’t argue with the positive praise that diners give this downtown Lewes restaurant—or its steady business. The restaurant’s fish tacos, margaritas and guacamole get as much press as the town’s distinctive architecture.

Big Chill Beach Club

It just doesn’t get any beachier than a tiered deck on the Atlantic. Add some Mexican-inspired dishes from Taco Reho, also part of La Vida Hospitality Group, and you’ve got the recipe for seaside success.

27099 Coastal Highway, Bethany Beach, 402-5300

 

El Dorado

Half Full

The oblong-shaped pizzas, topped with whole milk mozzarella, are addictive, the draft cocktails are novel, and the wine and beer lists are intriguing. Add a soup, salad and sweet—but that’s it. The menu keeps it simple.

125 Second St., Lewes, 645-8877

 

Off the Hook

The first in the Hooked group, this intimate restaurant is a staple on the Bethany Beach dining scene. Roasted corn-and-jalapeño crab bisque, grilled swordfish and cioppino underscore the concept. Sit at the bar to watch the chefs in action.

The Blue Hen

There’s a fire pit on the patio, a happening happy hour and some of the best fried chicken in town, complete with greens. Start with the lobster toast—made with brioche—one of the many small plates designed for sharing.
