    The BEST Minorcan clam chowder is at the Beachcomber in St. Augustine, Fla. This red chowder recipe comes down from the Oldest city’s Spanish inhabitants. It’s the perfect blend of tomato-ey goodness, spice and salty clams.

    The best oysters, fried shrimp, crab cake, & fish sandwich is at The Sea Shack on Hilton Head Island, SC! Although not one of your categories, they make a mean shrimp burger too!

    The VERY BEST place to have steamed blue crabs is at Ed’s Crab Shack in Dewey Beach, DE. EVERYthing is better at Ed’s! It’s a roadside stand between Rehoboth Beach,DE and Ocean City, MD. The last time I was there, I was just off the beach in my swimsuit and I got into a conversation with a lady in a slinky nightclub dress about her necklace. It’s that kind of place!

    Cantler’s Riverside Inn

    An Annapolis, Maryland icon. Cantler’s is a waterfront restaurant with the best steamed Maryland blue crabs, clams, oysters, shrimp and fish. Make sure you have their directions, as it is Sheltered in the quiet waters of Mill Creek, Maryland. Just minutes from Annapolis City Dock.

    Try “THE MUG “N” MALLET”…its right on the boardwalk….not only are the crabs excellent,but once you’ve eat’n…you are just steps away from great ocean city boardwalk shops and stores. Wait for a table to open up outside….its well worth the wait. Have fun!!! My family sure did.

    Pop’s Fish Market in Deerfield Beach has THE BEST fish and chips I’ve ever had. Pop’s is (as the name may imply) a fish market, so if you decide to eat there, you get to sit at a table wedged into a corner. But oh! the crunchy crispy salty fishy goodness!

    For fish tacos its Outriggers in Seabrook, TX. And you have to try the stuffed jalapenos and crab dip while you sit on the deck and watch the boats go through the channel.

    Believe it or not, I found the most delicious crabcake sandwich in Clinton, NJ at the Fine Diner on Old Route 22. Spending most of my childhood summers on the Chesapeake Bay, I know a thing or two about crabcakes. My rule is to never order one outside of Maryland. Last summer on our way to the berry patch, we stopped in the Fine Diner and I don’t know why but I ordered the crabcake sandwich. It was a perfect blend of juicy jumbo lumps of crab, balanced spice, and a crispy golden exterior. I was in heaven.

    Anthony’s at Columbia Pint, in Richland Wa. has great mahi mahi tacos, and you have to try the hawaiian nachos.

    The best seafood I have come across was actually in the north georgia mountains at a little place called The Last Catch in Jasper GA. Shrimp were large and breaded perfectly..We felt we were at the beach!!! Crab Cakes were plump and tasty. They offer Grouper , Salmon etc. there which was obviously very fresh..check it out!!!
