Have you ever heard that the second driest state in America has some delicious seafood available? Yes, you heard it right! Salt Lake City offers delectable seafood options, from restaurants with oyster bars to restaurants that serve fried fish. When you live in Utah and love seafood, your options are somewhat limited. We live a long way from the ocean in our beautiful state. These are the best seafood restaurants in the state. 

Market Street Grill 

Market Street Grill is a Utah restaurant with three locations and a lot of loyal customers. It has an oyster bar and grill, along with a formidable menu that includes options for both sea and land lovers. You'll feel like you're in a bustling New York seafood restaurant.

Doc Magleby has been serving world-famous breadsticks and a warm welcome to Magleby's customers for over twenty years.
