SoDel Concepts plans to open the company’s newest restaurant, Matt’s Fish Camp Fenwick, in the former location of Ropewalk Fenwick Island. It will be the third Matt’s Fish Camp location.
The owners of Ropewalk will continue to operate restaurants chain in Ocean City, Chincoteague, Baltimore, and Bethany locations.
Located at 700 Coastal Highway in Fenwick Island, the menu at Matt’s Fish Camp Fenwick will be similar to the offerings of the other Matt’s Fish Camp locations with favorites like crab cakes and lobster rolls as well as some chef-inspired dishes available only at the Fenwick location, a release stated.
“With this new restaurant, we can continue to pay tribute to our founder Matt Haley, the restaurant’s namesake, and serve great food in a beautiful space along Delaware’s Coast. We will be open year-round and will offer indoor and outdoor dining,” stated SoDel President Scott Kammerer.
Haley, honored by the James Beard Foundation for his charitable work, died in a motorcycle crash while on a trip to Nepal and India. Haley’s charitable activities included aiding children in Nepal.
