Even without direct access to the ocean, seafood is still one of Austin’s most popular cravings. Exciting new options continue to pop up, beyond the typical fish and chips fare (though don’t worry, there are still plenty of great fried fish spots). Regardless if you’re hungry for oysters, sushi, or po-boys, coming from both restaurants and a variety food trucks, have simply never been better.
Here are Austin’s best seafood spots, from stalwarts like the longtime Quality Seafood and stylish Perla’s, fried goodness from Evangeline Cafe, fish tacos and sandwiches from Turf N' Surf, and many more. This update includes Jack Gilmore’s Salt Traders Coastal Cooking.
