If you’re not into cooking dinner tonight, maybe you should swim on over to one of these awesome local seafood places! Better yet, these seafood spots are all just a few minutes away from our apartments in Louisville. Take a look at our top picks.

Mike Linnig’s Restaurant

Open since 1925, Mike Linnig’s Restaurant is now run by the third generation of the family. It’s a great little place with a hometown feel. They serve the classics, like fried clam strips, fried shrimp, and crab cakes. Their grilled menu choices include salmon and tilapia. They also offer burgers, chicken, and soups. For dessert, don’t miss the chance to try their Oreo cheesecake! Mike’s is open for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week.

Brendan’s Catch 23

Brendon’s Catch 23 is definitely, as they claim, “not your grandfather’s surf n’ turf.” If you’re looking for a world-class seafood restaurant, Catch 23 is your place. They have their sustainably fished wild-caught seafood and shellfish flown in daily. They also offer hand-cut prime steaks and New Zealand racks of lamb. Plus, they do have vegan and gluten-free options. Their drink menu is extensive, with over 100 of Kentucky’s finest bourbons, and their famous handcrafted cocktails. 

The Seafood Lady

The owner of The Seafood Lady restaurant brought her love of seafood with her all the way from Florida. This place has recently expanded to two locations right here in Louisville, so pick which one you want to stop by. Their menu offers a more Southern base of choices, like Cajun shrimp and crab, fried gator tail, lobster tails, and crawfish. And they have sides like their delicious golden-brown hushpuppies, seafood mac, and spicy red potatoes.
