Best Seafood Restaurants in the U.S.: Star Fish Company

Karen Bell

Star Fish Company, Cortez, FL

A dockside joint as bare bones as it gets: small kitchen, cash-only counter, and eight picnic tables behind a wholesale market. But the views of Sarasota Bay, swooping pelicans, and stilted fishing sheds are iconic Florida, and the seafood, served in paper boxes, is perfect in its simplicity. Grouper, mullet, shrimp, and oysters are grilled, fried, blackened, and sautéed and served with hush puppies, coleslaw and French fries. If you have room, we say go for the Key lime pie.
