Deep Blue Bar & Grill

Operated by Big Chef Guy

111 W. 11th St.
Wilmington, DE 19801


In an effort to revitalize Wilmington's restaurant scene, Chef Dan Butler opened Deep Blue in September of 1998. Dan had enjoyed previous success since opening Toscana Kitchen + Bar in Trolley Square in 1991. Dan is a Wilmington native and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. His experience includes some of the best restaurants and hotels in Miami, Tampa, and Washington DC, where he worked at the Watergate Pastry Shop as a wedding cake specialist.

"Deep Blue is a seafood restaurant with a very happening bar, and located in the downtown area of Wilmington. People say that this town closes at 5 o’clock, but we have proved them wrong."

Lunch is served Mon-Fri in the Dining Room until 2pm and the Lounge until 5pm.

Tues. Lunch - $20 3-course tasting menus
Thurs. Lunch - $10 Tuna or Beef Burger

Dinner is served Mon-Sat from 5:30pm to 10pm (and usually later).
