Best Waterfront Dining in Sussex County

One of our favorite things about building new homes in Delaware? Besides our homes’ sound construction and energy efficiency, we love the area! With many of our communities just minutes from the waters of the bay and ocean, there is no shortage of beautiful waterfront views around. And what’s better than having a delicious meal with a gorgeous view? Here are our favorite waterfront restaurants.
