Seafood Towers?

Looking for a restaurant with a great seafood tower for a birthday.
Any suggestions?

  1. Ocean Ave. Seafood in Santa Monica does some nice towers starting at $35 and going up to
    their $135 " The Grand" that includes 15 Oysters, 6 Clams, 8 Crab “Nuggets”, 16 Jumbo Shrimp, 20 Black Mussels, 11⁄4 lb Lobster, 2 lb Dungeness Crab, and 1 Sea Urchin. I'm hungry already.

      and, although, off-topic,
      at happy hour (4-6pm weekdays) ocean avenue seafood offers an oyster platter of 6 great west coast oysters WITH a flight of three 2-z portions of wine for ~$17.(i.e a total of 6 oz of wine)
      without the wine, the oysters are offered at $1.75 each during happy hour.

      last wednesday i was there and had both the oyster platter and a platter of 6 oysters during happy hour and was well-pleased with the offerings.
      they also serve a good-quality warm sour dough bread. . .

    2. MASTRO''S has a amazing seafood tower.

      1. Water Grill

            Since Ocean Ave. and the Water Grill are owned jointly it makes sense that they both offer exactly the same seafood towers at the same price point (from what I can see).

        1. Mastros has a fantastic tower. Great steaks too.

            irrc the last time i had steak at mastros, they doused it in melted butter, a peeve of mine.
            so, if you prefer your steak sans butter, be sure to order it that way.

          2. Paradise Cove does a tower, the food there in general isn't great, but it's right on the beach and the best location hands down!
