5 Unbeatable South Beach Seafood Restaurant Experiences

What is the best seafood restaurant?

Miami Beach is a vibrant, luxurious, and diverse place, making it the perfect destination for seafood-loving tourists and the ideal home for the South Beach Seafood Festival.

South Beach alone boasts dozens of wonderful seafood restaurant options for those seeking something fresh off the boat. But which one to choose? Here are five of our top picks for the best seafood dining experiences on the beach:


1. A Fish Called Avalon

700 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

No seafood lover’s stroll down Ocean Drive would be complete without a stop at A Fish Called Avalon. For over three decades they have been serving seafood and steaks on a nightly basis, to the delight of South Florida foodies and tourists alike.

Feel like a couples’ feast from the raw bar? We recommend their Seafood Festival, and not just for the great name; offering two dozen oysters, sixteen mussels, a dozen shrimp cocktails, two whole Maine lobsters, lump crab meat salad, trio of ceviche, champagne mignonette, and cocktail sauce, this is a masterful meal that begs to be shared.


2. Joe’s Stone Crab

11 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Joe’s Stone Crab has been a mainstay of Miami Beach for over a century, and for good reason. Founded in 1913, Joe’s buys and serves more Florida Stone Crabs than any other restaurant and their long-time expertise shows in their dishes.

The world famous raw bar includes Shrimp, Ceviche, Oysters on the half shell, Maine Lobster, King Crab claws, and—of course—plenty of Stone Crab.

A variety of other seafood options, including pasta dishes and shellfish platters, offer more sophisticated selections for the discerning palate. Landlubbers will be equally satiated by the steak, chicken, tacos, salad, and so forth offered up as alternatives to Joe’s classic seafood.


3. Lobster Bar Sea Grille Miami Beach

404 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Lobster lovers need look no further than the Miami Beach location of Lobster Bar Sea Grille. Now in its third year, the Grille boasts fresh fish from all over the world and proudly displays them on a bed of ice at the front of the restaurant for customer approval and selection.

Celebrate today with their third year anniversary menu, offering pristine whole fish, calamari, surf ’n turf, and a whole lot more.

Lobster options range from Bisque “Au Cognac” and Nova Scotia Lobster Morsels for those feeling just a bit peckish to Lemon Risotto, Americaine, and Stuffed Whole Lobster if you’re seeking the full experience.


4. Poseidon Greek-Seafood Boutique Restaurant

1131 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Looking for seafood with Mediterranean flair? Poseidon features healthy dishes seasoned with classic Greek spices imported from the Taygetos Mountain of Kalamata.

Their fish are similarly flown in fresh from the Aegean Sea and prepared following classic Greek tradition for the most authentic Mediterranean experience that South Beach can offer.

In addition to fish and shellfish, Poseidon cooks up classic Hellenic dishes like Chicken Souvlaki, Moussaka, and Leg of Lamb.


5. Seawell Fish N’ Oyster (Minnow Bar)

660 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

One of the most highly anticipated new restaurants on South Beach, Seawell Fish N’ Oyster will be opening this summer to much fanfare.

Boasting locally sourced ingredients and rustic regional classics, Seawell is bound to make a splash in South Beach’s vibrant North of Fifth neighborhood. Their menu strikes the perfect balance between straight-forward and playful, with approachable dishes made from finfish and shellfish alike.

Be sure to reserve a table once their outdoor dining terrace opens to get the complete SoBe seafood experience.
