Midway’s Roadhouse opening soon

/ Updated on May 13, 2017

More Breaking Chews from The Rehoboth Foodie! The recently closed Delaware Distilling Company in Midway will NOT be a Hooters. It will NOT be a Roosters. (I told you so!). What it WILL be is a blast from the past: Roadhouse Bar & Grill! Sound familiar?

Longtime local restaurateur and Conch Island Key West Bar & Grill owner Bryan Derrickson and his wife Olivia have teamed up to bring a Route 66 vibe, approachable pub fare – and a respectful nod to the past – to that history-filled building in Midway. Many of the favorites from Bryan’s menu at Conch Island (don’t miss the conch chowder) will make an appearance, PLUS steaks, wings, ribs and burgers. One of the features will be happy hour throughout the entire restaurant – not just at the bar. A couple of the sleepers at Conch Island are Bryan’s steaks and burgers – so it looks like we’re in for a surprise.

Former professional drummer and law enforcement guy Bryan Derrickson runs an upbeat and clubby atmosphere at Conch Island and plans on keeping that vibe – with a hint of Rt. 66 drama – at the new Roadhouse Bar & Grill. We’ll keep you informed as the grand opening approaches. Congrats, Bryan and Olivia!

    Any idea what can be done with gift cards for DDC?

    What happened to DDC? We only went there a few times, but we liked the people and the food. I haven’t seen anything in the paper so this comes as a shock.

    Needmore windows. Very dark inside.

    My understanding is that a lot of the old DDC crew will be returning. Can’t wait!

    Same name as before, but not the same owner or food right?

  6. Laurie says:

    Awesome news! Initially I was upset to see the Distillery close. We really liked going there for their pork shanks and great happy hours deals! The manager was always so nice to usl I hope he will continue on at the Roadhouse. I wish great success to all! Looking forward to checking it out!
