Description: The Starboard Restaurant is Dewey's most famous venue for fun, great times, and tremendous service! It has been home-awayfrom-home for most Dewey Beach visitors over our 55+ year history. The Starboard truly holds a special place in more people's hearts than anyone could ever imagine! The Starboard was originally built and opened by Duke Duggan around 1960 and has gone through several changes over its years. Purchased and run by the Hearn family during the late 80's and early 90's, Chip Hearn grew The Starboard into a nationally known hot spot. Purchased by current owners Steve 'Monty' Montgomery and his partners in 1999, The Starboard's popularity is now off the charts as it has grown into a national phenomenon! From famous Suicide Sundays to Eggs Delmarva and wonderful breakfasts and nightly entertainment - both on stage and with long-time DJ personalities - you will always find a crowd of people enjoying themselves at The Starboard. Wear Starboard merchandise anywhere in the country and you are bound to have someone mention how much fun THEY had when last in Dewey Beach! There isn't enough room to list all the awards from over the years - most impressive have been the infamous Cornerstone Award in 2010 by the Delaware Restaurant Association showing the level of community service The Starboard has contributed. Our local Chamber of Commerce awarded The Starboard its Business of the Year in 2009, and Delaware Today magazine readers annually award The Starboard as Dewey Beach's best restaurant, best downstate bar, best Sunday brunch, best staff, best event (Running of the Bull), amongst so many others. Enjoy The Starboard. It's truly a place thanks to so many wonderful people enjoying themselves throughout all these years... Find out for yourself just how comfortable and fun all facets of The Starboard Restaurant can be!

My family and some friends were there during spring break for a lunch. It was so comfortable! Many choices, quick and friendly service and and traditional environment! I loved it.

Not sure if this place usually does take out but everything was neatly packed in a Starboard bag so I assume they do? We ordered 2lbs steamed shrimp to take across the street to our rental. We were disappointed that the shrimp was very chewy:(
While waiting for the order we noticed the place was bustling with people so I think this place is more of a drinking establishment maybe.

I saw a review of someone saying how bad the Bloody Mary's are and no additives. If you take a look the photos I have posted I don't see how that's possible. Plus if you go for breakfast the hangover bowl or eggs Delmarva are a must!! Don't like Bloody Mary's get a grapefruit or orange crush.

Summer weekends at the Starboard are as good and fun as any place in the US. Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning - it's all a great time!
