Date Night Around Middletown

February 10, 2020

In the winter evenings, there’s no better time to cozy up inside a downtown hotspot for date night. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you might be looking for a little inspiration to shake up your usual routine around your new McKee Builders home in Whispering Woods.

From gourmet restaurants to funky breweries, there’s something special in town for every couple to enjoy. Just minutes from your modern McKee Builders home, your new favorite date-night spot awaits! Take a look at our winter 2022 recommendations for romantic fun around beautiful Middletown, Delaware:

Schaefer’s Canal House: Who says you can’t enjoy laid-back living by the bay in February? At this beloved restaurant and marina, it’s always summertime. Warm up with the Maryland delicacies you love like crab bisque and crab cakes, as well as pasta specialties, steaks, and more. Cheers to waterfront fun with your sweetheart!

Cantwell’s Tavern: A staple among Delaware residents, this historic tavern always promises a great meal, great drinks, and an even better time. Enjoy fine-dining fare like mussels, oysters, scallops, filet, and much more, while you sip on delicious wine. Just make sure to save room for desserts like gingerbread creme brulee!

Prime 225: Romantic and lively at the same time, this upscale eatery guarantees a pitch perfect date night. With an extensive menu that emphasizes steak, seafood, pasta, and the best wines to go with them, you can be sure that your taste buds will experience true love on Valentine’s Day too.

Chesapeake Inn: Don’t love the idea of celebrating Valentine’s Day with all the crowds? On Sunday, February 16, the beautiful Chesapeake Inn is hosting a “jazzy brunch overlooking the waterfront,” where you and your sweetheart can enjoy a full buffet, live jazz music, and bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys. 

1861: Intimate, old fashioned, and charmingly cool, this basement-level gastropub is the perfect place to hide away and enjoy the coziness of dim lights, tasty drinks, and delicious food. Come for the fun cocktail hours, live music, and drink specials, and stay for all the good moments with your partner in crime. 

Metro Pub and Grill: Even casual restaurants can create the most romantic date nights. This hometown hotspot at Peachtree Station offers your favorite dishes, from appetizers like calamari and flatbreads to mains like chicken marsala and pan-seared salmon. Enjoy drink specials and live music while you dine in style!

Crooked Hammock Brewery: What better way to celebrate love than with tasty beer brewed from scratch, a little sunshine, and a fun atmosphere? Now’s the perfect time to sit back, relax, and appreciate the little things in life with an ice-cold beer and your sweetheart by your side. Not to mention, your pets can join too!

From all of us at McKee Builders, we hope you have a lovely date night this winter!
