Breaking bread is a bonding experience, encouraging new friendships while testing the strength of communal sledgehammers. Swing into sustenance with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh seafood dinner fare at Wicker's Crab Pot in Chesapeake.
Owner and fourth-generation waterman Ray Wicker Jr. scans the briny deep to net some its finest culinary offerings, constantly repopulating his menu with fresh catches every morning. Practice taste bud calisthenics by diving spoon-first into a bowl of Debbie's seafood chili ($4.49–$5.49), then test your shell-cracking mettle with a pound of snow crab legs steamed and seasoned to pincher perfection ($16.99). Diners can enjoy a seafood potpie ($16.99) the way Blackbeard's grandmother used to make it—packed full of crabmeat, scallops, shrimp, diced carrots, and inaccurate maps to buried treasure. The rib-eye steak staves off hunger with a 10-ounce slab of beast ($16.99), while the crabby chicken breast topped with crabmeat pleases palates with a unique pairing ($17.99). On select nights, guests can nourish famished ears with live music or the mumbled ramblings of an unoccupied seashell.
