Eat it Here, Then Eat it There…
Enjoy a seafood feast at home in Orange County at top southern California seafood restaurants, then travel up to Alaska to experience more fresh seafood — even some you can catch yourself.
Seafood Restaurants in Orange County
Luckily for residents of Orange County, there are plenty of opportunity to eat fresh seafood in the Orange County. From food trucks to fine dining you can find a wide range of tasty seafood bites.
First off, the food truck — Slapfish. Casual eatery Slapfish works with sustainable fresh seafood providers to get the ingredients it needs to create its scrumptious seafood dishes at its multiple Orange County locations. You’ll find Slapfish across the Orange County, both in food truck and brick and mortar form, plus a location in LAX airport. At these locations, you’ll find hearty American comfort food that entwine hefty portions of fish, such as the Clobster Grilled Cheese with lobster and crab, the tasty Fish and Chips, or the Surf n Turf Lobster Burger with lobster atop your beef patty.
If you’re looking to enjoy your seafood while looking at the sea, and in a luxurious setting, head to Bluewater Grill in Newport Beach. Located right on the harbor, Bluewater Grill puts a focus on fresh seafood with top-notch service and al fresco dining. It’s a great place for a date night or evening out with friends and family. Choose from the menu featuring a variety of fresh fish of the day, which are all cut on the premises, or get adventurous and try the Linguine Vongole with clams or the Miso Glazed Black Cod.
Sail to Alaska for Seafood
Once you’ve had your fill of Orange County seafood, head far, far up north to the rugged land of Alaska to try some fresh seafood in a wildly different setting, while sailing the straits and coastline of Alaska on an Alaskan cruise. There are some especially fun ways to eat seafood when you’re in port during a Celebrity Cruises Alaska vacation thanks to food-themed shore excursions.
Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary and Crab Feast: Ketchikan is a fun little fishing town that is known for its crab. Experience an abundance of this shellfish on a crab-themed shore excursion, which first takes you on a tour through the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary and to a demonstration of a totem carving.
Alaskan Halibut Fishing: Eat fish you personally caught in Alaska thanks to this shore excursion, which takes you out on a fishing expedition to catch the tasty halibut. Your catch of the day will then be professionally wrapped up and frozen to be shipped to your house where you can enjoy it after your cruise ends — which may help soften those post-cruise blues!
Taste of Skagway: Spend your day in Skagway experiencing the delicious side of its culture, along with learning about its history. You’ll visit the Gold Rush Cemetery, hear more about the art of dog sledding, visit the Klondike Gold Fields, and try a variety of popular Alaskan appetizers — which may include seafood — plus try some local microbrews.
