Miami, located in the sunshine state of Florida, prides itself for its variety and selection of unique restaurants and dining experiences.  While there are so many to choose from, many people come from all around the world to sample the seafood choices, and believe us there are lot of them.

Being near the coast and having the ability to offer fresh-caught fish, crab, and shrimp, some of the best restaurants in Miami are full of mouth-watering ocean cuisine that just came off of the boat. The truth is, Florida, and Miami included, offer more than 80 types of seafood that are harvested right off of Florida’s coast.

Below is a small sample of some of the enticing, hard to resist catches of the day you might find near the sandy beaches of Miami.

Fresh Mouth-watering Seafood

Delectable Shrimp

While shrimp is the largest seafood industry in the United States, most of the shrimp that people eat is imported or not fresh. Miami is unique in the fact that here we can offer up fresh, locally caught shrimp. Whether the shrimp is served as part of a Po’ Boy sandwich, in a Caesar salad, on a delicious shrimp scampi, as shrimp and grits, or in some Ceviche, you’ll surely rave over the delicious locally-caught shrimp.

Hard-To-Resist Lobster

If you want tender, succulent, fresh-caught, high-quality, and simply to die for lobster, you must sample some of the glorious lobster dishes served right here in Miami. Lobster bisque, Spanish Style Paella, or grilled lobster are just some of the ways that this sea delicacy is served up. Here in South Florida we pride ourselves on our world-famous “Lobster Season” or more popularly for our “Mini-Season” in which some of the prime Lobsters are caught.

Yellowfin Tuna

This delicate fish is unique to Florida, and you’ll find plenty of it in Miami. Yellowfin tuna steak is a local favorite, but you can also try it in a salad, or as tuna tartar.


Linguini and clams, clam chowder, garlic sautéed clams, or clams casino are all tempting ways you’ll find this tasty mollusk served up. When eaten in the aesthetic scenery of Miami accompanied with a crisp white wine, it’s hard not to feel like you’re enjoying something that not everyone gets to try every day.

Miami is a city full of art deco architecture, sandy beaches, vibrant culture, beautiful people, and some of the sunniest days in the United States of America. When searching for the best restaurants found in Miami, be sure to sample some of the world’s most delicious seafood. You won’t regret it.
