A place for seafood

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

A place for seafood

Postby cute hat » Mon Aug 15, 2011 2:01 pm

Can anyone recommend a place that has good seafood that's not too pricey? It doesn't have to be a place that specializes in seafood, just as long as they offer some selection and it's done well.
Thanks!

Sardine. Not extensive but decent and relatively inexpensive.

Crabby Bill's, St. Pete Beach. You-peel-em shrimp, oysters on the half shell, blackened grouper--all good.

Ms Vilas and I had a great meal there, mussels and something else. Can't exactly remember all the details as that was a couple decades ago. Even bought a hat and tee, both long worn out.

Glad to hear they still do it well.

Capt Bill's in Middleton. They have lighter fare menu items that are $12 or less. Also, Joey's but they aren't as good.

I don't know anything about Joey's. Tell me more. Have you been there? How long have they been open? Where are they? (I know, I could look that up.)

Used to be a mixed-review chain. National ownership divested, local owners bought this location out. Reviews seem to have improved since then.

I second Sardine. Brasserie V has a good touch with seafood, and not just mussels.

Sounds like good recommendations. I'd especially like to hear from the inexpensive contingent.

Meaning what? You mentioned good seafood, so that sharply limits your options in Wisconsin. Sardine isn't cheap, but you could say it's inexpensive as far as good seafood goes.

Sardine is a good option.

For Madison, Joey's is good and relatively inexpensive.

For St Pete's Beach, I recommend Philthy Phil's.

In the years I've lived here, I have never been to the Blue Marlin, but isn't that supposed to be a decent seafood place?

It's top-notch, but pricey.
