Description: The Starboard Restaurant is Dewey's most famous venue for fun, great times, and tremendous service! It has been home-awayfrom-home for most Dewey Beach visitors over our 55+ year history. The Starboard truly holds a special place in more people's hearts than anyone could ever imagine! The Starboard was originally built and opened by Duke Duggan around 1960 and has gone through several changes over its years. Purchased and run by the Hearn family during the late 80's and early 90's, Chip Hearn grew The Starboard into a nationally known hot spot. Purchased by current owners Steve 'Monty' Montgomery and his partners in 1999, The Starboard's popularity is now off the charts as it has grown into a national phenomenon! From famous Suicide Sundays to Eggs Delmarva and wonderful breakfasts and nightly entertainment - both on stage and with long-time DJ personalities - you will always find a crowd of people enjoying themselves at The Starboard. Wear Starboard merchandise anywhere in the country and you are bound to have someone mention how much fun THEY had when last in Dewey Beach! There isn't enough room to list all the awards from over the years - most impressive have been the infamous Cornerstone Award in 2010 by the Delaware Restaurant Association showing the level of community service The Starboard has contributed. Our local Chamber of Commerce awarded The Starboard its Business of the Year in 2009, and Delaware Today magazine readers annually award The Starboard as Dewey Beach's best restaurant, best downstate bar, best Sunday brunch, best staff, best event (Running of the Bull), amongst so many others. Enjoy The Starboard. It's truly a place thanks to so many wonderful people enjoying themselves throughout all these years... Find out for yourself just how comfortable and fun all facets of The Starboard Restaurant can be!

The Starboard used to be a big biker bar in the 70's-80's and has morphed into the fun, party spot to go to in Dewey Beach! Be prepared for strong drinks and lots of dancing!

The food was good. Bigger than expected. A little confusing on seating if there is no server. Not many spaces to park.

Beach bar atmosphere with lots of space. A must see and do location at least once while in Dewey Beach. The Starboard is a mainstay that has been in Dewey Beach for weekends. make sure to stop in early for Sunday brunch and check out the Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar. The selection and choices of drink mixtures is mind-boggling. Food is pretty good and you won't go hunger. Feel free to be beach casual, everyone else is. If you are looking for a late night location this is where many people go. Check out souvenir shop nearby for take home reminders too.
