Best Crab Cakes
READERS, UPSTATE | Harry’s Seafood Grill
101 S. Market St., Wilmington, 777-1500
READERS, DOWNSTATE | Big Fish Grill
20298 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 227-9007
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Seasons Pizza
It may seem surprising—what with the “pizza” in its name—that Seasons has such magnificent crab cakes, but those at Seasons are for real, made fresh every day from a family-inspired recipe loaded with juicy lump crab meat, then broiled to golden brown perfection. Next time, skip the mozzarella sticks and go for crab.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Sambo’s Tavern
283 Front St., Leipsic, 674-9724
Sambo’s Tavern has practiced the river-to-table philosophy for more than 50 years: Blue crabs are plucked fresh from local waters and delivered dockside to the tavern. The crabs are then expertly transformed into various dishes. The Burrows family has long known that exceptional crab cakes are made with plenty of meat and include little filler. These babies melt in your mouth.
