Best seafood restaurants in Calgary you need to check out

Jun 2 2023, 7:45 pm

We may be landlocked, but these are the best seafood restaurants in Calgary that will make you believe you’re living next to the ocean.

Most spots have oysters, but these restaurants and bars specialize in all things seafood, from seafood towers to shrimp cocktails.

Calgary has some absolutely incredible sushi spots that obviously specialize in many types of seafood, but for the purposes of this list, we will focus on non-sushi seafood. The same thing goes for places that specialize in only fish and chips.

Here are some of the best seafood restaurants in Calgary.
