Where in Cincinnati can I have a good seafood meal?The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor. Report
It's a chain in the suburbs, but I've heard that Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen in Springdale is pretty good. If you like Cajun or Creole food, then check this place out. Otherwise, I'd probably stick to someplace like Mitchell's (yes, also a chain), but they serve great, fresh seafood. They have a location in Newport on the Levee and another at the Streets of West Chester. If you want fish fast food style, but super tasty, head to Alabama Fish Bar in Over-the-Rhine. It is a fried fish paradise, but people line up out the door to get it...because it's good!
Probably the two best places for a good seafood meal in Cincinnati are located right across the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky. Head over to Newport on the Levee for some excellent seafood and excellent service at Mitchell's Fish Market. Mitchell's has both indoor and outdoor dining and an extensive menu of fresh seafood. There's also a location in West Chester, but I'd opt for the one located on the river with the view of Downtown Cincinnati. A little further along Riverboat Row is The Chart House. The Chart House offers great seafood and great service, along with wonderful views of the Ohio River both from inside the dining room and their outdoor deck. The Chart House is a little pricier, so I tend to save it for more special occasions. Downtown Cincinnati has a McCormick & Schmick's right off of Fountain Square, but I've never eaten there and it doesn't offer the views the other two places do.
