Brigantine Seafood

Outstanding fresh steamed black mussels at The Brigantine in Poway! Cooked with white wine, saffron broth, garlic butter, tomato and chorizo; served with grilled lemon and baguette.

The Par Lounge

This new Shrimp & Chips dish at The Par Lounge is outstanding! Better than I was expecting. The horseradish sauce (aka cocktail sauce) was remarkably good. Seemed house-made and had a nice horseradish bite. Anyway, highly recommended, only $14.

The Par Lounge

Outstanding red snapper Mardi Gras special at The Par Lounge in Ramona!

Island Hideaway

Outstanding Seafood Cannelloni at Island Hideaway in beautiful Solomons Island, MD! As soon as I saw this on their menu I knew I had to try it. A house-made pasta crepe stuffed with crab, shrimp & ricotta, with your choice of marinara or Alfredo sauce (or a blend of the two which is what I requested), then baked off. Such a remarkably good dish. I highly recommend visiting here if you’re ever in Southern Maryland. One of my favorites for sure in the area and I’ve been to many of them over the years.

Ruddy Duck Brewery & Grill

Quick trip to southern Maryland (back in February) for a couple days! That could only mean one thing for me – seafood. Most notably, crab! That would be with a C not a K. I’m at Ruddy Duck in Solomon’s, MD. I stop here every time I’m in the area. Outstanding crab cake dinner made with fresh, never frozen jumbo lump crab.

Rubio’s

Tasty “California Bowl” with mahi-mahi at Rubio’s in Ramona, CA! It’s nice to be eating something here with just a fork that I don’t have to pick up.

The Lobster Trap

Outstanding Seafood Pasta (add lobster) at The Lobster Trap on Catalina Island! This is such a fun and trippy place. Definitely added to our list of go-to faves for next visit.

Waterman’s Harbor

Outstanding Chilean Sea Bass and Spicy Shrimp Pasta at Waterman’s Harbor in Dana Point, CA!

Harpoon Henry’s Seafood Restaurant

(Visited December 8, 2019) Excellent calamari appetizer at Harpoon Henry’s at Dana Point Harbor! I loved how it was prepared steak style and cut into strips. A nice change from the traditional rings, tubes and hideous spidery legs. Tasted really good and was accompanied by two delicious dipping sauces. In business since 1975, Harpoon Henry’s offers a spectacular waterfront view, fresh seafood, and the latest in California beach cuisine.

Yanni’s Bar & Grill

(Visited November 30, 2019) Excellent Linguine Frutti de Mare at Yanni’s in San Diego! Shrimp, mussels, salmon and calamari in a delicious white wine broth. In business for over 17 years, they recently won the Best Greek Restaurant award from the San Diego Chapter of the California Restaurant Association.
