Updated: Jun 20, 2023

As a Delaware family photographer, the number one most asked question I get after a session is where clients should take their family to eat. What are the best restaurants in Delaware to take a family?

I understand why recommendations are needed! At a session, chasing your kids around and asking them to smile is a lot of work. You’re all going to be hungry afterward. And if you have an evening session during the summer, we usually schedule photoshoots around 5:00 or 6:00 pm to get the best lighting. That means it’s definitely dinner time once we wrap up on the beach. To help you out, here are the 15 best restaurants in Delaware to grab some food with your family after you finish up your Delaware family photography session.


In Lewes

Sarah's favorite location for Delaware beach family photography is Cape Henlopen. As a result, families are in Lewes when they finish up their shoot. Here are the best places to take your family after your shoot wraps up in Lewes.

Kindle -  Delaware Beach Photography best places to eat in Delaware

For adults with small, older families, Kindle is a great option. If you have a bunch of young kids in tow, you might want to go somewhere else. The restaurant is small, quiet, and upscale.

They have exceptional service and a great menu full of options. Make sure to save room for dessert!
