Are you in the mood for some delicious seafood?

If you're in the state of Ohio, you should check out these local restaurants (this list is by no means exhaustive!).

The Pearl

If you find yourself in central Ohio, you can't go wrong with this tavern. They're known for their oysters. Customers enjoy the oysters on the half shell. If you prefer your oysters to be served hot, customers also recommend the N’awlins style baked oysters. Another popular option is the restaurant's fish and chips, which feature fried fish caught in the Great Lakes and malt vinegar fries with coleslaw. If you want a seafood feast, check out the seafood tower, which includes 12 oysters on the half shell, a half-pound of peel and eat gulf shrimp, Louie dressed colossal crab, lobster tail, cocktail sauce, and pickled horseradish. If you have room for dessert, the Pearl has pies that are baked fresh every day.

The Pearl has two locations: Columbus (641 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215) and Dublin (88 N High St, Dublin, OH 43017).

Mancy's Bluewater Grille

Located in northwestern Ohio, this upscale restaurant serves some of the finest seafood in the area. Every day, they receive fresh deliveries of seafood from fisheries in Boston and Honolulu. Patrons love the restaurant's seared scallops, which come from Georges Bank and are served with tomato-shallot butter, risotto, and asparagus. You also can't go wrong with their maple bourbon salmon, which is served with a delicious maple bourbon cream, butternut squash ravioli, pecans, and watercress. You also can't go wrong with the lobster tails and king crab legs, which are both served with drawn butter.

Mancy's Bluewater Grille is located at 461 W Dussel Dr, Maumee, OH 43537.

Brennan's Fish House

This local favorite has been serving great seafood for decades. If you love a good fish fry, the restaurant's Lake Erie yellow perch or walleye is a must (they also have a perch and walleye combo on the menu if you want to try both fishes). In addition to their fish fry, Brennan's is known for their homemade crab cakes and stuffed orange roughy, which is filled with a delicious crabmeat stuffing. If you're looking for a surf and turf option, check out their Delmonico steak and crab legs dinner, which comes with a hand-cut steak and two clusters of crab legs.

Brennan's Fish House is located at 102 River St, Grand River, OH 44045.
