Looking for recommendations of seafood in Dallas. I am not looking for "fancy" seafood more like family and fun type of place. I really like "Nate's" in Addison and I think Fishmongers and Big Easy Sandwiches in Plano are good as well.
These are the kind of places I am looking for. Any other recommendations along these lines? Haven't tried the Shucks (Big/Aw, etc.).
Razzoo's is okay if you just want something fried, but not much selection other than that.
I love the following casual places:
Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill
4017 Preston Road, Plano, TX
Lefty's Lobster & Chowder House
4021 Belt Line Rd # 101, Addison, TX
Hook Line & Sinker
3103 Lemmon Ave, Dallas, TX 75204
5100 Belt Line Rd # 740, Dallas, TX
Fish City Grill
18149 Dallas Pkwy # 110, Dallas, TX
if you're adventurous, take a trip to Gran Machu Picchu in Dallas (on NW Highway now, not Garland RD) and try the ceviche. For like $11 you get 3 times what you'd get at a fancy place, and more authentic (no tomatoes). Hopefully it's still open, I haven't been by there in almost a year.
A lot of Vietnamese and Thai places will do a whole fish, fried or steamed. I've had catfish at Quan Kien Giang and Red Snapper at Jasmine. Both were alright but to be honest I'd rather have a more interesting fish than either of those options.
The best fish I had in town was at Masami, it was escolar on special and I think I was just lucky because it was...incredible. It wasn't listed on the specials last time I was there, but now is a good time to get Aji (Spanish mackeral) at least I think it's still a good time.
