Destination? Abbott’s Grill on Broad Creek, Restaurant, Laurel, Delaware

FullSizeRender (285)

Laurel, Delaware, is considered to be part of the Salisbury, Maryland-Delaware Metropolitan Statistical Area.  It takes about 40 minutes from Rehoboth Beach. Going on Rt. 24 all the way, checking out the country side.  Stopping for lunch which is something I have been wanting to do.  It happened that I was in the area.

I found the restaurant to be bigger than I thought.  It has a separate bar and banquet facilities, as well.  But, the first thing I saw as we came in was the bread on the counter.  Just baked and beautiful.

Kristen was to take care of us and she did a great job.  A big shout for her.

The most incredible chips were brought to our table.  They were made out of flour and spinach.  Soft, warm, lightly salted, and the best ever, accompanied with salsa.  Worth driving there.  And, of course, they are made in house.

We ordered the same thing from the daily special….Colvine Farms Bison Burger with white cheddar, bacon, portobello and onion.  Colvine Farms are located on Rt. 404….local, the best!!

A medium rare bison burger is so yummy, cooked to perfection with beautiful looking tomatoes.  Loved the flavor of the bison!

It was a quick lunch with no dessert because as you can see it was not necessary.

Abbott’s Grill on Broad Creek is the sister restaurant of Abbott’s Grill located in Milford, Delaware, north of the Delaware beaches.

Have a great week-end.

Destination? Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Georgetown, Milford, Delaware, Thanksgiving at The Beach!! Relax, Give Thanks, Enjoy your Stay, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches


Before I was married, became a mother and decided to be a stay-at-home mom, I lived in Baltimore, Maryland.  I worked in Baltimore and then on Wednesday of Thanksgiving I would drive to Orlean, Virginia, to my boyfriend’s family farm house.  He then became my husband, John.  My mother in law, Louise, is a great cook and she would go all out Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day.  Feeling totally satisfied and comatosed I dreaded the late in the day drive to Baltimore.  Work was waiting on Friday.  They really should give Friday off to everyone.  A long week-end of Thanksgiving.  Most of us have a lot to be thankful for.

I love an overcast day on Thanksgiving.  I like it cold, as well.  So, even though I enjoy the swaying palm trees of warmer climates, on Thanksgiving and Christmas, my preference is the chill in the air that the Atlantic Coast usually offers.

The Delaware Beaches are open for business.  The following are restaurants in Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Georgetown, and Milford that will have Thanksgiving fare.  This list is probably not complete.  I will update it as I find other restaurants, but in the meantime, it might help if you are coming to the beaches to start a new Thansgiving tradition.

Abbott’s Grill, Restaurant, Milford, American Cuisine, Outdoor Dining, Wine Tastings, Live Entertainment, 4th of July Patio Party, Delaware



I was so glad to finally made it to Abbott’s Grill.  This restaurant, located at 249 NE Front Street, Milford, Delaware, is only about 20 minutes away from Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Dewey.  It takes no time to get there.  Plus, there is plenty of parking.  You know how important that is at this time of the year.  And, to top it all, their food is excellent.

Telephone?  302-491-6736.  Website?

My friend, Susan, and I arrived for lunch. We had seating options.  Of course we sat outside.  Anytime that is available, I take that opportunity.  I don’t know, for some reason, the food even tastes better.  It is so much more enjoyable.  Their outdoor dining felt comfortable and on fall, winter and spring nights, the fire will be roaring.


Abbotts Grill has a large bar.



It was so nice to see Laura and to meet Kevin and Ryan.

Susan and I proceeded to check the menu and we decided to split their Caprese Salad.  Ryan told us that those were the first local tomatoes of the season.  Just in, from Fifer Farms.  Besides the tomatoes, it also had hand-pulled mozzarella, and the most delicious basil pesto.


Then, Susan chose the Colvine Farm Bison Burger.  Colvine Farm is located in the town of Greenwood, Delaware.  Back on August 6th of 2010, I wrote a post with pictures.  You can go under the Archives and click on that month and scroll down to the day.


The Bison Burger had grilled portobello, smoked onions, applewood smoke bacon, and white cheddar.  Juicy, and cooked to perfection.

I wanted to try something different and what caught my attention was the Groovy Lavash Wrap with hummus, cucumber, tomato, goat cheese, and local greens.  The wrap was so crispy; a nice crunch to it, and warm to the touch.  The rest was perfect on a hot summer day; good combination of flavors.


The cole slaw was so good.  It was sweetened with pineapple juice.  It had a good consistency; one of the best I have had.

Abbott’s Grill opens 7 days a week.  Lost of events and specials every day of the week.

Sunday Brunch with a $5 Fix-It-Your-Way Bloody Mary Bar.  9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. There is a la carte menu, $3 Mimosas, Pancakes, Eggs Benedict, Crepes, Omelettes and more.

Mondays is $6 Burger Night!! 

Tuesdays is Team Trivia.

Wednesday is 1/2 price bottles of select wine.

Thursday is $5 “Tinis”.

Friday and Saturday is Live Music and DJs!!



4th of July Patio Party on Wednesday, 7/4!!  From 5:00 p.m. ’till…  $4 Drinks, $4 Grill Menu, Live Entertainment.

July 14th is Bastilles Day.  Abbott’s Grill Loves Wine and is celebrating with Bernie’s Wine Tastings.  There will be an expanded tasting with lunch on the 14th from 12 – 2 p.m.  $35/person.

Note:  My server was great.  I had known her from another restaurant in Rehoboth years ago…I have to apologize, but the name escapes me as of this writing.  She was great, told me how to make my own balsamic reduction and now I am hooked.

Also, please note that Abbott’s Grill can handle customers with gluten allergies.

Have a Good One!!  Thanks !!

“Each of our journeys with canine cancer are different, but together, we can help find a cure.”  bonnie benson

I have written about my dog, Addy, in the past.  She is a “rescued” dog and I have been thrilled to have given her a “forever” home.  But, years ago I had a Springer Spaniel named Koko and I loved her to death.  She developed diabetes and I went through the stages of helping her get through this devastating disease that also affects canines.  I know what Bonnie went through and I hope you help her raise funds for Paws for the Cause and the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine’s Chase Away Canine Cancer Program.

On her behalf, I thank you.

Talk to you later…..have a great week-end….
