    Richmond is not a great seafood town. One choice is the Hard Shell @ 1411 East Cary St. http://thehardshell.com/downtown/.
    One place I find truly exceptional, especially if you like oysters, is Rappahannock @ 320 E.Grace & 4th.http://www.opentable.com/rappahannock

      1Buckeye nailed it. Only other suggestion I'd add is the Boathouse. http://boathouserichmond.com/rocketts...

        Yep. Am aware of but haven't tried that one. Understand the Rockett's Landing restaurant on the James River is really scenic as well.

        Have searched a little more because I am a seafood lover too. Live in Williamsburg but visit Richmond often. If you don't mind a 15-mile, drive Pescados in Midlothian is well reviewed and recommended for a Latin American / Caribean take on seafood. Haven't tried it, but will soon. Maybe other Richmond natives who have been there could weigh in http://www.pescadosseafood.com/wp-con... If you want to stay downtown, you have 3 good recommendations. Welcome to VA.

          Pescados is "okay" at best. If you live close by and want a quick, week night meal, it works. I would not travel more than a couple of miles to eat there.

            The whole fish at Pescado's is one of my favorite things to eat in Richmond.
