Updated: Jan 23

When you live or vacation near the water and crave seafood, you want to assume that whichever seafood restaurant you end up at will be serving the freshest fish. Unfortunately, that just not the case. However, we compiled a list of 10 restaurants that time and time again get the highest rave reviews when it comes to their seafood menu.

Don't forget to head to the daily specials pages for your town to see if any of these restaurants are offering specials or even entertainment! There are some unbelievable specials out there! We also post these daily deals on our local, private Facebook Group which you can join HERE.

Some highlights from our list of the best seafood restaurants around Melbourne, FL and Brevard include Islands Fish Grill in Indialantic, New England Eatery in Melbourne Beach, Seafood Atlantic in Cape Canaveral and Florida's Fresh Grill in Cocoa Beach.

(Just a note: We believe that everyone has unique tastes and preferences; so we refuse to assume that our opinion of what we like the most is what everyone else would like as well. However, we want to deliver a solid list of restaurants that you are most likely to love. To do this, we analyzed restaurant reviews, forums and other chats and then cross-referenced that information with the personal experiences of our friends, family and social network. We combined all of that information into a list of the most popular, most raved-about restaurant experiences. This is the list that we are excited to share with you! Enjoy!)
