6 Seafood Restaurants in Salisbury, MD That Will Knock Your Socks Off

Best Seafood Restaurants In Salisbury Maryland, From Crab Legs to Lobster and Everything In Between

I’m gonna take a wild guess here and say that you are here because you are looking for the best seafood restaurants you can find in Salisbury, Maryland. And if that is the case, I have good news for you! Because today I have compiled a list of the best seafood places you can find in Salisbury. And while it’s hard to get a ton of menu options on a list about the best seafood restaurants, I did my best to try to make sure you would be able to find something no matter how picky of an eater you might have in your party. 

I’ll be sure to give you each restaurant's address so you can swing by if something catches your eye. And I’ll even link you to each restaurant's website when I can so that way you can check out their menu options and prices before you decide on any one place. And on top of that, I will also provide you with a link any time one of these fantastic seafood places in Salisbury, Maryland accept our convenient digital GiftYa gift cards. 

What’s a GiftYa?

You don’t need to worry when you’re in Salisbury looking for restaurants, stores, and attractions. You can check out GiftYa and search for gift cards by Salisbury and find everything they offer in Salisbury. The cool thing about this is that you can get a GiftYa digital gift card for you or a loved one and send it wirelessly in seconds. Anytime you or they are in Salisbury looking for seafood restaurants.  

Not only can you send and receive a GiftYa wireless, you can also keep track of the balance all right from your phone, Unlike a standard gift card where you have to write the balance on the back everytime you use it, a GiftYa keeps track for you on your phone all the time, And let’s be honest, isn’t it way more likely that you will be out at a restaurant with your phone than with your gift card? Your loved one is also much more likely to have their phone on them than a gift card if you are sending on e for a birthday or celebration to a younger relative, You can count on kids and college students to always have their phones on them, but can you really count on them to have a gift card you send them. 

Not to mention their digital format makes GiftYa perfect anytime you want to send a gift card with a large sum to a loved one in Salisbury *wink wink.* With a GiftYa there’s no writing multiple balances all over a card and hoping you can keep it organized. You also don’t have to worry about the card being lost or stolen with a GiftYa. You can keep track of them all digitally. So you don’t even have to deliver them in person to know they got there in time. 

There’s no relying on the Postal Service and hoping they don’t lose it or delay it before your loved ones' big day or celebration. And I’m sure you’ve noticed more and more restaurants going with digital menus and options. Don’t be embarrassed at a modern 21st Century establishment by handing over a clunky plastic gift card when you can upgrade to a sleek digital format today.

Beach to Bay Seafood Company

Best Seafood Place In Salisbury Maryland

Seafood doesn’t have to be fancy to be fantastic. That’s why casual eatery Beach to Bay Seafood Company is at the top of my list. Image courtesy of Yelp.

Beach to Bay Seafood Company comes in at the top of my list today for a couple reasons. The first reason is that they have overwhelmingly positive feedback from their customers and consumers. And I always find that reassuring before I recommend a place to somebody. But the real reason they are at the very top of the list is because they have such an extensive menu. Whatever kind of seafood you are looking for, Beach to Bay Seafood Company is probably going to have it on their menu. As long as you are looking for a menu of classic American seafood dishes.This isn’t going to be the fanciest place you can find a seafood dinner, but it is going to have some of the absolute best seafood you have ever had in your life.  

“I really like this place. The flounder sandwich is amazing. The family owners are really nice. They have pivoted to COVID and the worker shortage very well. I hope they can  open the quaint dining room again. It's very eastern shore.” - Yelp Review 

Unfortunately Beach to Bay Seafood Company isn’t one of the seafood restaurants in Salisbury participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.

Mogan’s Oyster House

Best Oysters in Salisbury 

100 E Main St | Salisbury| mogansoysterhouse.com

As the name might suggest, the reason I am recommending Mogan’s Oyster House is because they have hands down the best oysters you can find in Salisbury Maryland. So if you have a specific craving not just for seafood, but for oysters in specific, then Mogan’s is going to be the place for you.

But Mogan’s Oyster House doesn’t just serve oysters. They also have an extensive menu that consists of plenty of classic seafood dishes. So everything from crab cakes to lobster rolls is going to be on the table. Well if you order them that is. But no matter what you order you are going to leave Mogan’s feeling like you got an excellent meal at an excellent price. It seems like everybody else does. 

“I came here for a business dinner with a large group of my colleagues, the atmosphere has a sleek modern design, the staff is very professional and friendly and very helpful during our team dinner in accommodating our needs. The food and drinks were delicious my favorite were the oysters I definitely had a great experience in this restaurant and can't wait to return for future dining.” - Yelp Review

You can’t get a digital GiftYa gift card to Mogan’s Oyster House at the moment but be sure to check back soon as new seafood restaurants and locations in Salisbury are added all the time!

Old Mill Crab House

Best Crab Cakes and Crab Legs Around

8829 Waller Rd | Delaware | oldmillcrabhouse.com

There’s lots of similarity in the menus across this list because I am just recommending amazing seafood places over and over, and they tend to have all of the main bases covered – lobster, shrimp, and oysters, oh my. 

But the nice thing is, a lot of these restaurants serve seafood generally, but also specify in one specific dish. And the Old Mill Crab House is just such an establishment. And as you might guess, they specialize in crab dishes above anything else. So everything from crab cakes to crab lakes are going to be out of this world when you order them at Old Mill Crab House.  But even if you aren’t in the mood for crab they also have plenty of options involving shrimp and chicken. 

“We have eaten quite a few times here this summer and referred some families as well. Best sauce prices around. The food is brought out just minutes after you order it. When they bring you more snow crab legs they don't just bring you one or two like most places. They nice size legs too and full of meat. Def worth the money.” - Yelp Review 

Right now you aren’t able to get a GiftYa digital gift card to Old Mill Crab House but check back because there’s more seafood restaurants and stores in Salisbury added all the time.

Cactus Taverna

A Blend Of Mediterranean and Central American Cuisine

2420 N Salisbury Blvd | Salisbury | cactustaverna.com

Cactus Taverna makes it onto my list today because not only do they have a resoundingly positive amount of feedback from their customers, but also because they give me the opportunity to add a little bit of menu diversity to the list today. See, even though Cactus Taverna is a seafood palace, they specialize in a Mediterranean seafood menu. And this means that they are going to have different dishes and preparation styles than the more American style menus that are offered elsewhere on the list.

And not only are you going to be able to get fantastic seafood at Cactus Taverna, you are also able to order plenty of non-seafood options off their menu. Everything from steak fajitas to Tapas can be ordered at Cactus Taverna. So if you are having trouble with a p[articular picky eater in your party. This might be the place for you, because they offer a wide variety of menu options that the other options on  the list simply don’t have. 

“A Salisbury tradition! An amazing fusion of Spain / Greece and Central American cuisine. This place is long standing and wonderful! Enjoy tapas, sangria and wine Margaritas! Come hungry leave satisfied!” - Yelp Review 

Cactus Taverna doesn’t offer GiftYa digital gift cards just yet, but check back soon because we are always adding seafood restaurants and attractions in Salisbury!


Diverse Menu That Features Seafood

7456 Gumboro Rd | Pittsville | boxcar40.com

Boxcar40 iis another entry on the list that serves seafood for sure, but also has plenty of other menu options available as well. You can expect everything from pork ribs to brisket when you stop in at Boxcar40. The only thing that brought them this far down the list is that this is supposed to be a lust about seafood restaurants, and Boxcar40 features a seafood menu, but I don’t know if that strictly qualifies them as being a seafood restaurant.

Regardless, they have universally positive feedback from their customer base. So if you aren’t really sure what you are in the mood for this evening I would highly recommend giving their menu a look. You might find something on there that speaks to you that none of the other restaurants on the list were able to provide you with. 

“The employees made you feel welcome and the service was great. My wife had the crab cake ,  and she said it was excellent. I had the shrimp and grits and they were perfect as well. Great experience away from the beach.” - Yelp Review 

There aren’t GiftYa digital gift cards available for Boxcar40 as of the date of this writing, but there might be now! Be sure to check GiftYa itself for all the gift cards available for seafood restaurants  in Salisbury.

Red Lobster

An American Seafood Tradition For Your Shrimp, Crab, or Lobster Fix

2314 N Salisbury Blvd| Across From Mall| redlobster.com

I understand that in the current economy, a lot of people are expecting a sure thing if they are shelling out the money on a night out. And that is why this option is included on the list. While I usually like to keep a list of unique logical restaurants, I feel sometimes that it is useful to feature one of the bigger more p[opular chains on a list as well. And that is why I am featuring the Red Lobster in Salisbury. Everybody is at least familiar with Red Lobster, you’ve probably been to one before. So if nothing else on this list spoke to you, then maybe you are just looking for something familiar and classic.

“Took my daughter for her 18th birthday. Service was a little slow but they did good with Covid precautions. Food was good except having the crab legs. Tiny bushel with one leg missing and we had to send it back because it was discolored. None the less, decent experience.” - Yelp Review 

That’s it for the best seafood in Salisbury, MD.
