  Christiana Campbells Tavern
by KennyB

This historic tavern, George Washington?s personal favorite, offers such seafood specialties as: Sherried Crab Stew, Skillet-seared Salmon, Crab Cakes, Seafood Muddle (a dish of fresh seafood, seasoned broth and Saffron Vegetable Pilau), as well as Gloucester Chicken, and Gridironed Delmonico Steak. The entrees are complemented by long-time tavern favorites: Campbell?s Cabbage Slaw, Spoon Bread and Sweet Potato Muffins.

Favorite Dish: The service was relatively quick and the food was great. Be prepared to stay at least one to one and a half hours enjoying the restaurant. I really enjoyed the crab cakes and Christiana's entrance into the dining room. It felt that George Washington was eating next to me.
