Best Seafood
Readers, upstate: Harry’s Seafood Grill (101 S. Market St., Wilmington, 777-1500)

Readers, downstate: Fish On! (17300 N. Village Main Blvd., Lewes, 645-9790)

Critics, upstate: The seasonal fish is always just off-the-boat fresh at Feby’s Fishery. Succulent fresh tuna is a top pick, and the clams are always tender. Loads of other fresh seafood is here for the taking—local rockfish, flounder, scallops and more. New England clam bakes and all-you-can-eat Dungeness crab are fun options, too. But we mustn’t give short shrift to Feby’s special seasonings and sides, especially the Golden Dip tartar sauce and the homemade slaw. Any sauce made with horseradish has a real kick, in fact. Roll up your sleeves and dig in. Bibs are provided. (3701 Lancaster Pike, Wilmington, 998-9496)

Critics, downstate: The fish isn’t actually moving on your plate, but it’s fresh from the boat at Cool Springs Fish Bar and Restaurant. Since 1999 the casual and relaxed restaurant has offered the kind of super-fresh fish you’d find in an upscale setting. On most nights, chef-owner Dennis J. Forbes offers about seven different fish, which change seasonally. Summer softshell crabs are hard to beat. Opt for oysters in fall. If someone at the table isn’t up for surf, go turf. The prime rib is top notch. (2463 S. State St., Dover, 698-1955)
