No summer is complete without a trip down to the ocean. One of our favorite activities is picnicking on the beach. There’s nothing like hearing the waves as you eat your meal.

As the colorful chairs and umbrellas begin leaving one by one and the fishermen make their way to the water, it is the perfect time to pick up dinner at one of our Bethany Beach favorites, DB Fries. It is quieter without the crowds. And it is the ideal time to savor a seafood dinner.

DB Fries is the perfect place to pick up a meal after spending all day in the sun, sand, and surf. They have a little something for everyone. My family loves seafood, and to have DB fries within walking distance to the water is perfect. They specialize in fresh seafood and lobster rolls, and hand-cut fries. They also have chicken tenders for anyone looking for something other than seafood.

My teenage son’s favorite menu item is the Dayboat Scallops Po’boy. He’s been eating them since he was five years old. Ten years later and it is still his favorite menu item when we visit Bethany.

This year I had a hard time choosing what to eat for dinner. While I stayed with the younger kids by the water, my husband picked up dinner and surprised me with their fried cod tacos. Tacos may very well be my most favorite food. Combine it with fried cod, and I have the best of both worlds. The tacos contained perfectly cooked fish, and three tacos were more than enough for dinner.

My husband ordered the Jumbo Shrimp platter. It comes with seven large shrimp, fries, and coleslaw.

And let’s not forget the fries! Can you even go to the beach without ordering a bucket of DB’s fries? It’s the perfect anytime snack while you are playing by the ocean. We always make time to pick up a bucket. My son likes to add salt, vinegar, and some Old Bay to make it crabby.

I love the ease of the corner shop where we can pop in and order for home or the beach.

But if you are looking for a sit-down experience, you can go to DB’s Seafood Company, which offers an expanded menu. No matter which one you choose, you will not be disappointed.

Prices are to be expected considering the location and the freshness of the food. However, this is one of our favorite places to go when we visit Bethany. We will always return to for their fresh seafood.
