Casablanca Seafood Bar & Grill

404 N. River Drive Miami, FL 33128 | Downtown/Overtown | 305-371-4107

Location Description:

As one of the first stops for local commercial fishing boats, the Bar & Grill's adjoining fish market weathered seafood market in Watson Island Marina provides an opportune place to purchase some of the very freshest fish around -- at bargain prices. The restaurant offers a dozen oysters on the half shell; three ceviches (octopus, grouper, and conch); and soft, flaky-crusted homemade Caribbean beef empanadas. Seafood snacks are fresh, and the ambiance can't be beat -- views include the Miami skyline, whirlybirds landing and taking off from a nearby pad, and pelicans posturing peacefully on bobbing boats. They even serve breakfast.
