A little bit about us:
Febys Fishery, originally located on New Road in Elsmere, Delaware, opened to the public in June of 1974 by founders Philip and Mary Sue DiFebo. What began as a small locally sourced fishery, would grow to become a full-scale seafood restaurant and fish market.
In the beginning, early morning drives to Cape May to greet the fishing boats, and secure the freshest product was Philips passion. Now 45 years later, Febys has built a strong reputation as a provider of quality seafood, with sourcing as close as the Eastern Shore of Maryland to the far waters of New Zealand.
Febys has experienced great success and growth over its 45 years of service thanks to their loyal patrons. In 1984, Febys expanded their commitment to delivering the freshest seafood products and opened both a market and restaurant at their present location on Lancaster Pike in Wilmington, Delaware. We continue to serve family recipes in a setting that is inviting, friendly and warm. The decor of the full service dining room, adjoining bar and banquet facility pays homage to family traditions. From fishing expeditions, to outboard racing memorabilia and racing titles, it is hard to miss the nostalgia, and not feel the continued passion that is Febys.
Become a part of our family and Wilmington's diamond in the rough.
