These 11 Restaurants In Colorado Have The Best Seafood Imaginable
It’s no secret that Colorado is home to the world’s best Rocky Mountain Oysters, green chile, and microbrews… but would you be surprised to learn that we are also home to some amazing seafood? That’s right; there is no shortage of fresh and flavorful seafood here in land-located Colorado, which can be found at these 11 must-visit restaurants:
1. Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar (Denver)
Located just down the street from Denver's Union Station, this small seafood chain has been named one of the "25 Best Seafood Restaurants" by Travel & Leisure Magazine. (One bite and you will see—err, taste—why.)
2. WW Peppers (Grand Junction)
Whether you are in the mood for innovative crab enchiladas, steak & lobster, or just some good old-fashioned battered shrimp, you are sure to find something to love at WW Peppers.
3. Enclade's A Taste of New Orleans (Pueblo)
For the best New Orleans-inspired crawfish étouffée and fried catfish platters outside of—well, New Orleans—there is only one Enclade's!
4. Bully's (Fleming)
One of the last places you would expect to find a 2 lb. crab leg special with all the trimmings would be in a small town, but that is exactly what you will find (and a whole lot more) at this northeast Colorado favorite.
5. Country Steak Out (Fort Morgan)
Also located in northeastern Colorado is Country Steak Out, which serves not only highly regarded steaks and burgers, but also fried and steamed seafood goodness!
6. Allred's (Telluride)
Situated atop the Telluride gondola path, Allred's is home to not only some of the best views in the state, but elegant seafood dishes as well.
7. Wild Standard (Boulder)
Not only are this establishment's Standards Wild (see what I did there?), they are also high, as they only serve the freshest fish from the most sustainable of sources.
8. Grey Lady (Aspen)
What tastes best after a day of gorgeous skiing and/or shopping along a beautiful Main Street? A mouthwatering clam bake with corn bread from the Grey Lady, of course!
9. Fish (Fort Collins)
Let's just say that you don't get a 4.5 star rating on Facebook and TripAdvisor for being just mediocre...
10. English Dockside Seafood & Grill (Colorado Springs)
Southern Colorado's favorite place to get their seafood fix is at English Dockside Seafood & Grill! (The pictured beauty is the drool-worthy grilled shrimp and fried oyster po' boy.)
11. Lucky Fins Seafood Grill (Greeley)
Whether you are craving fresh and flavorful seafood or scrumptious sushi, you are sure to find something to love at this 2016 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award winner!
