Best Happy Hour
READERS, UPSTATE | Stanley’s Tavern
2038 Foulk Road, Wilmington, 475-1887
READERS, DOWNSTATE | Bethany Blues BBQ Pit
6 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Bethany Beach, 537-1500

18385 Coastal Hwy., Lewes, 644-2500
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Deep Blue Bar and Grill
111 W. 11th St., Wilmington, 777-2040
Few happy hours combine quality and value like Deep Blue. Between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., $5 appetizers take an uptown twist in dishes such as duck spring rolls with ginger-jalapeño aïoli, and littleneck clams in steamed garlic-beer broth. Draft beers—a low, low $3 a pint—include righteously sippable Stella Artois, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and Twin Lakes Pale Ale. To get extra briny, grab any three oysters from the raw bar for $5.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | ¿Que Pasa?
124 Dickinson St., Dewey Beach, 226-1820
Once many Dewey Beach revelers outgrew the legendary Taco Toss at the Lighthouse, it was on to ¿Que Pasa? for its rockin’ happy hour. “It’s a religion to a lot of the people who come here,” says owner Jim Baeurle. People go for the margaritas but stay for the view, an unobstructed shot of Rehoboth Bay.
