Big Fish Grill, 720 Justison St., Wilmington, 652-3474, bigfishriverfront.com

Three words: lumps, lumps, lumps. At Courtyard Marriott-Newark, no one is skimping on the crab. Frequent travelers rave about them on tripadvisor.com, hotelplanner.com and foursquare.com. But you don’t need to plan a big journey. Just head to the hotel bistro. 400 David Hollowell Drive, Newark, 737-0900, marriott.com

Big Fish Grill, 20298 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 227-9007, bigfishgrill.com

The Burrows are still at it after more than half a century at Sambo’s Tavern. One reason: the classic crab cakes. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: These cakes are made with meat from local blue crabs and include little filler. They simply don’t get any better. 283 Front St., Leipsic, 674-9724
