There is a misconception that you can only get good seafood in states with coastlines, but Ohio restaurateurs have worked for years to dispel this myth. Delicacies are shipped directly from ocean-side fisheries or the Great Lakes to many of our restaurants. Check out these Ohio seafood restaurants for fresh seafood!

Pier  W’s location over Lake Erie gives customers the feeling of dining on a cruise ship.
