A warm, welcoming venue that??s worth the trip, whether or not you plan to shop at the mall. Look first at the fresh fish selections (seared tuna, barramundi), available with two sides. Also well-done: crab cakes, fried shrimp, and lobster Cobb salad. Affordable menus include ??Fashionably Early?? and nightly bar specials.
Counter-service joint specializing in rice bowls, with salmon, ahi tuna, shrimp, chicken or veggies.
Poke is the Hawaiian phenom that traditionally describes chunks of raw fish marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil. Until recently, this creation had marginal visibility on local menus. But if “healthy” and “sushi-grade ahi tuna” make your heart go pitter-patter, your poke “bowl” haven has arrived: Freshfin Poké.
Like sitting in an upscale fish house in New England ?? that??s the intention. Windows on three sides present an impeccable view of Lake Michigan on a clear day. Serves a stellar buffet-style, all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch. The oyster bar and caviar service are highlights.
Pier 106 Seafood Tavern boasts a patio snug on the RiverWalk. While some of the dishes are what you expect to find at a seafood eatery, the menu also features distinctly different dishes like seafood casserole and sea bass with a side of lime risotto for a fun tropical twist. Happy-hour specials between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays make this a popular after-work stop.
