Dewey Beach, Delaware
Ed's Chicken and Crabs enjoys a cult following for its fresh steamed blue crabs dusted with Old Bay seasoning. It's not fancy--most of the seating is outdoors, and table decorations include a mallet (which will also be functional if you order a whole crab). But it's wildly popular with local residents.
