Best of Delaware 2008

Our 25th salute to the places that make Delaware great, plus the Hall of Fame of winningest places ever. (Can you say Grotto Pizza?) As chosen by you, the readers (with a little help from your friends here at DT)

Best Outdoor Dining
Readers, upstate: Kid Shelleen’s (14th and Scott streets, Wilmington, 658-4600)

Readers, downstate: The Cultured Pearl (19 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-8493)

Critics, upstate: There are few summer pleasures greater than sitting on the deck at Harry’s Seafood Grill while noshing a warm fish taco and watching folks burn calories on the Christina Riverwalk as you sip a cocktail. Harry’s deck is also a prime position for viewing fireworks at Frawley Stadium, boats from the Wilmington Rowing Club and sailings of the Kalmar Nyckel. (101 S. Market St., Wilmington, 777-1500)

Critics, over the line: Owners of the Chesapeake Inn bill the restaurant as the next best thing to dining at the beach. In many ways, it’s better. The inn is closer, easy to get to and the only traffic jam you’ll find here is during crazy Canal Day. From May through October, the Chesapeake Inn’s deck is the perfect spot to marvel at the trademark Chesapeake City bridge, to watch hulking cargo ships pass on the C&D and to see who’s docking at the marina for a night of fun. Regulars go for the brick oven pizzas, but sandwiches and fried goodies are also served on the deck. Need to get your Jimmy Buffett on? The tiki bar adds to the island atmosphere by cranking out popular rum runners and mojitos while live bands keep it rocking. (605 Second St., Chesapeake City, Md., 410-885-2040)Best
