If you’re a seafood lover, being in Florida we have so many amazing options and two seafood restaurants in the state are being named Best in America.

I’m not a huge meat eater, but I do eat fish almost every day. When choosing a restaurant to dine out at, I like to go with one that has great seafood options. When I lived up north, seafood was always available, but nothing compares to what we have fresh down here. I like it all, from shrimp, salmon, scallops, crabs, oysters, grouper, if it swims in the sea, chances are I’ll like it.

I also enjoy trying new restaurants whenever I can. Now, there’s a few I’ll have to check out, locally or when I’m traveling. Restaurant Clicks put together a list of 18 of the best restaurants in the country for seafood lovers. While they’re not here in Southwest Florida, the two that made the list aren’t too far away. If you have a weekend getaway to either city, they would definitely be worth a visit.

There’s so many way seafood can be enjoyed. Fried, broiled, grilled, raw and this list of restaurants stand out when it comes to quality seafood dishes.
