A seafood restaurant is a restaurant that specializes in seafood cuisine and seafood dishes, such as fish and shellfish. Dishes may include freshwater fish. The concept may focus upon the preparation and service of fresh seafood,[1] (as opposed to frozen products). Some seafood restaurants also provide retail sales of seafood that consumers take home to prepare.[1] Seafood restaurants may have a marine-themed decor, with decorations such as fish nets, nautical images and buoys.[1][2] Fare can vary due to seasonality in fish availability and in the fishing industry.[2][3] Seafood restaurants may offer additional non-seafood items, such as chicken and beef dishes.[2]


Upscale and midscale seafood restaurants may offer more selections compared to quick-service restaurants.[2] Some are located nearby or on a waterfront.[2]


Fare in seafood restaurants may include fresh and frozen fish, shellfish, crawfish, shrimp, crab, lobster, mussels and oysters.[4] Some have a raw bar area where raw shellfish products are prepared, such as raw oysters.[4][5]
