The tastiest seafood restaurants in Edmonton

We’re not talking about chicken of the sea here; we mean shrimp, scallops, calamari, oysters, mussels, crabs and lobster - the good stuff, the food of kings. And, even though Edmonton is landlocked, far, far away from any ocean, there’s still plenty of amazing seafood restaurants that serve up some great fare.

Cafe Amor

1
10807 106 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 4A7

Café Amore is a family-owned and operated traditional Italian restaurant with a modern twist. Specializing in seafood and pasta, they have a live lobster tank so you can pick your own. The food is fresh, tasty and full of love. If you’re looking to share, try the king pescatore platter, with a full Atlantic lobster. Alternatively, you can build your own seafood (or seafood pasta) plate by selecting the seafood of your choice, along with the sauce and pasta. You are only limited by your imagination.

Atlantic Trap & Gill Pub

2
7704 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 4C5

This is a good ol’ fashioned East Coast pub-style restaurant. They have all of the seafood creations you dream about, such as bacon-wrapped scallops, PEI mussels, and calamaritime (calamari, Maritime style). Their seafood chowda’ is pretty great - rich, creamy and bits of seafood in every bite.

Vons Steakhouse & Oyster Bar

3
10309 81 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1X3

Vons might be a steak house, but the seafood here is so plentiful here, it’s all about sharing. Dishes such as mushroom Neptune bake, seared red tuna and crabshack oysters are just for starters. How about a seafood platter for two, or a crab dinner? You’ll think you died and went to the east coast. They also have a buck a shuck special Monday to Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and all night Sundays in their oyster bar.

Joey's Seafood Restaurant

4
3040 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton, AB T6J 6V4

A nice, simple, and tasty restaurant, Joey’s is definitely all (and only) about seafood. Their classic dishes include the Cajun combo with Pacific blackened snapper, crab and shrimp, or the most decadent shrimp and lobster sauce fettuccine you’ve ever tried.

Sabor Divino

5
109-10220 103 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0Y8

A lovely Portuguese restaurant in the Boardwalk Building downtown, Sabor serves up some great seafood à la Portuguese. Start with a classic lobster bisque and the octopus and mussels salad with red wine vinaigrette, followed by the lobster risotto or the bacalhau, a boneless Portuguese-style salt cod with a white wine cream sauce. Divine.

Fantasy Grill Dining Room

6
17700 87 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4V4

L2 Grill, located inside the Fantasyland Hotel, prepares some of the best blue crab cakes and house-cured Atlantic salmon in the city, maybe even the country. The seared Qualicum Bay scallops are prepared perfectly with a peas and fine herbs risotto. But the shrimp capellini is really where it’s at - the pesto cream sauce is not too heavy and done just right. And, just because it’s amazing, order the lobster tail as an add-on.

The Louisiana Purchase Restaurant

7
10320 111 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 1L2

Louisiana Purchase serves up some fine southern cookin’ and what do southerners like better than their meat? Seafood. You’ll find everything from crawfish and blackened catfish to N’awlins seafood gumbo and steamboat jambalaya. Everything here is good, wholesome and comforting food. You may need a bib.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
