Seafood Restaurants in Miami, FL

We didn’t want to suffocate you with too many options. Our list comprises seven seafood restaurants that will make your time during fall in Miami incredible and unforgettable. Check at least a few of these spots if you haven’t time to visit them all. You’ll not be disappointed. 

Stiltsville Fish Bar

Stiltsville Fish Bar is one of the best seafood restaurants in Miami, and we will not argue with that. We will talk about food briefly, but first, we need to mention the outstanding atmosphere and vibe this place oozes. The interior will teleport you to a nautical dreamland, and if you decide to have dinner on the patio, you’ll be amazed by the view. If you have the time, our advice is to make a reservation at a specific time to enjoy the sunset while eating the best seafood in Miami. 

And now, let’s get back to the food. Chefs Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth ensured that only the best food came out of the kitchen. And to this day, they manage to deliver excellent and tasty dishes to their customers while maintaining a certain level of quality. Start your night with some Tuna Ceviche, and later, you can order their Surf n’ Turf Burger with a side of Zucchini Fries. And if you are coming with a crew, you can share their Crispy Whole Fish. Everything else from their menu is also outstanding, so you’ll be more than satisfied with whatever you decide to get. 

Bayshore Club

This is the new kid on the block, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be included in our list. This newly opened fresh seafood joint will blow your mind, as it is one of the most exciting places you can visit this fall in Miami. It’s a place with such an incredible history that we are happy it got opened, and we hope it will work forever. 

Bayshore Club is located on the historical site Dinner Key in Coconut Grove. Besides being a popular picnic place and a beautiful location, this place had a vital role during WWI. It was the first continental naval air station in the US. So, besides serving delicious seafood, Bayshore Club here is celebrating the history and giving this place and the golden age of flight the recognition it deserves. 

Regarding food, if you are coming with a group, you can get their Crab & Shrimp Cocktail Cooler to share and, later on, a Whole Fried Snapper. 

If you are not in the mood for sharing food, we recommend trying their Grilled Mojo Marinated Mahi Mahi and Low Country Shrimp n’ Grits. 


Located on Lincoln Road, Juvia is an excellent place for fresh seafood. The view here is impressive, and you’ll be able to enjoy the panoramic while eating beautiful meals. Their seafood pasta is incredible, and it’s a great dish if you can’t decide what to order or want to try a bit of everything. If you are not in the mood for pasta, you can get the risotto with the king crab or the seared tuna with avocado and some mouth-watering caramelized onions. We are getting hungry just by thinking about all the delicious fresh seafood they have, so be sure to check them out. 

Rusty Pelican 

Okay, everyone knows about this joint, even the people that never visited our coastal city. And there’s a reason why many people know about Rusty Pelican, it’s one of the best restaurants in Miami, and there’s no doubt about it. It’s an old-school place that’s been around for ages, but the most important thing is that they managed to keep a certain quality for all these years. And that’s something we highly appreciate. 

Besides the great view of the city’s skyline, this place offers you the best dishes. We adore their Chilean sea bass that comes with smoked sweet plantain mash. And we can’t decide if that’s the best dish they offer, or the halibut crusted with sunflower seeds and served with goat cheese. 

My Ceviche

Another fantastic place on our list is My Ceviche, which you can find in various locations in the city. It’s a place where you can eat some good quality fish while it’s not a fancy place which is perfect if you are not in the mood for formal dining or wearing anything smart casual. Here you can make your bowl filled with tasty ingredients and some of the best fresh-caught fish. The options and possibilities are endless, and we bet you’ll need years to try every single combination. 

Wabi Sabi By Shuji

If you are in the mood for some sushi, go to Wabi Sabi. Chef Shuji Hiyakawa serves some excellent-quality sushi executed with precision and love. It’s another casual spot on our list, and we think it’s great for eating out during weeknights or going out with your friends. They also have various bowls, and here we need to mention the dessert; they have matcha mochi that we think you shouldn’t skip. And they are very proud of their tuna, so be sure to try something including this type of fish. 

Joe’s Stone Crab

Another old-school place that’s been here for ages and it’s still famous is Joe’s Stone Crab. This place is iconic, and you will find it in every article that talks about the best seafood in Miami, and there’s a reason for that. And the reason is their incredible menu and high-quality ingredients. Their menu includes various food options, not only seafood, but if you have never visited Joe’s place, we advise you to stick to the fish part. As the name suggests, they are famous for stone crabs. And you are lucky because stone crab season starts around the 15th of October, so you’ll be able to try them out if you are during fall in Miami. 

So, what do you think? Did we manage to represent the seafood scene in this beautiful coastal city properly? We believe we did. And once you go out and dine in some of these places, you’ll agree with us.
