The Best Seafood in Las Vegas​

From seafood boils to luxurious sushi, Las Vegas has options for every seafood lover.

Las Vegas is one of the best foodie hubs in the country, and it's not hard to see why. The abundance of cuisines is intense, and you can find any food you're looking for on any given day. If you're craving seafood, check back often for our growing list of fantastic seafood options on and off the Las Vegas Strip. 

CATCH

If you're in search of perfect photo opportunities to accompany your meal, CATCH at Aria Las Vegas is the place to go. The dining room and entry are stunning and the menu has various seafood options for almost every single course. Are you in the mood for sushi and sashimi? The "Catch Roll" and "Truffle Sashimi," are delightfully colorful options—set your cameras to video for your "Catch Roll." If you're not here for dinner, don't worry. Many of the seafood options are available during brunch too.

Estiatorio Milos

Famously known for their incredible lunch specials, Estiatorio Milos is a seafood lover’s paradise. Try out the menu with their “Back to the Office Lunch,” priced at $38 for three courses or go all-out with their a la carte menu. We recently visited for a hosted media lunch and found a wide variety of the freshest catches.

If you’re in the mood for the freshest seafood, order items from their raw bar like the Greek ceviche or the Avgotaraho. The Milos Special is a fan favorite—the zucchini and eggplant tower is also highly photogenic. Make sure to save room for dessert!

Siegel’s 1941

Did you know you can find stone crab in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas? We were invited in for a hosted media preview of the weekend special at Siegel’s 1981 inside the historic El Cortez Hotel & Casino. While in season, diners can enjoy 1lb of stone crab with sides for $49 on Friday and Saturday nights.

The pre-cracked claws are a perfect meal in themselves or a great starter option if you’re looking for a shareable premium item to begin your meal. The 24-hour spot also has a daily prime rib special for $14.95 and a $7.77 breakfast special if you’re not in the mood for seafood.

Water Grill 

Located inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Water Grill provides a sophisticated seafood option that's perfect for special occasions, visitors and all seafood lovers. During a press tasting, we got to try the wild salmon while the softshell crab was also in season. With specials based on the freshest catches, you can be sure to enjoy quality offerings for lunch or dinner.

There's a wide variety of seafood options on the menu like the chilled shellfish, crustacean section and the whole fish portion of the menu. Water Grill also has a full bar menu and a selection of delectable desserts.

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab

 

Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace offers up a variety of seafood options, including their famous stone crab, which can be ordered by claw size. We attended a hosted media event, but Joe’s has always had some of our favorite seafood (our editor has been visiting since childhood).

The crabs are flown in fresh, so you’ll enjoy the same quality at the Las Vegas location as you would in the original Miami Beach location. The starters section contains numerous seafood options (if you’re in the mood for a variety, try “The Whale” for a taste of several items), and even the salad section has some seafood favorites. Save room for dessert—the key lime pie here is almost as authentic as it gets.

Emeril's

Are you looking for some Creole cuisine on the Strip? Celebrity Chef Emeril Lagasse's MGM Grand restaurant has a selection of New Orleans favorites along with signature dishes. If you're looking for a variety of seafood, their Seafood Tower has a little bit of everything. Make sure to end your meal with their famous Banana Cream Pie. 

King’s Fish House

If you’re searching for quality seafood without heading to the Strip, King’s Fish House at The District at Green Valley Ranch is a fantastic neighborhood option. We visited during a hosted media visit and were surprised at the Strip-quality offerings, the ambiance and the fantastic service.

The oyster sampler was a fun way to taste our way through east and west coast offerings (they vary depending on what’s brought in fresh daily) and the seasonal offerings during our visit included the spiny lobster and Dungeness crab (both sold by the pound and served with your choice of two sides).

Amalfi

Amalfi by Bobby Flay is an ode to the Amalfi Coast, and the flavors and ambiance transport you to an Italian coastal getaway. We were treated to a hosted preview upon the restaurant's opening and got to enjoy several of the restaurant's fantastic seafood offerings.

A separate menu is presented for the daily fish offerings since they vary from day to day. If you're in the mood for the freshest catch, venture over to the fish market and pick out whatever strikes your fancy. The fish can then be grilled whole for a genuinely stunning table presentation or filleted in the kitchen and served ready to eat immediately.

Mastro’s Ocean Club

Famous for its selection of the freshest in upscale seafood and hand-cut prime steaks, Mastro’s Ocean Club backs up its stunning menu with exquisite service and a refined atmosphere. It resides inside Crystals’ 80-foot-tall sculptural treehouse, the centerpiece of the luxury shopping center.

Enjoy the signature iced Seafood Tower—all three tiers—a generous Bone-In Filet and the one-of-a-kind Warm Butter Cake. The extensive cocktail menu features both classics and current trends, and an award-winning wine list with over 500 selections, with more than 50 available by the glass. Open for dinner nightly. Private rooms and restaurant buyouts are available for large parties and special events.

Michael Mina

Located right behind the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden is Michael Mina. The bright space features a fantastic view of the resort pool, which provides a bright and colorful backdrop for the equally bright and colorful seafood dishes.

If you’re in the mood for something genuinely opulent, opt for the Traditional Royal Caviar Service. Order from a selection of decadent ice cold or hot charcoal-grilled shellfish and starters before enjoying main courses like “Michael’s Lobster Pot Pie” or the “Phyllo-Crusted Sole.” Having a hard time deciding? The restaurant features two tasting menus.
