Because Fitzroy has built such a strong reputation on multicultural diversity, seafood restaurants in Fitzroy are authentic with a modern Aussie twist!

Whether it’s prawns marinated in buttery garlic sauce with zesty lemon, or a cream sauce scallop linguine, the options at Fitzroy’s seafood restaurants are simply mouth watering. Other options included panko-crumbed fried fish, pan-seared fish of all varieties, fish glazed in special marinade, and specialty seafood dishes like shrimp scampi!
Richmond Seafood Tavern
Recently adding delivery service, Richmond Seafood Tavern is, by far, the locals’ favorite spot for seafood. Bar none, its seafood chowder, king crab, and pan-seared scallops are the best in the city. Classic creamy garlic king prawns are another great option. The restaurant also has a “fresh market seafood” option, letting you know if scallops, mussels, swordfish or something more is freshly “ocean to table” for you!
Miss Katie’s Crab Shack
A simpler, more affordable option, Miss Katie’s Crab Shack has freshly shucked oysters with crab of the day being some of the best crab in Fitzroy. Additions include potatoes, corn on the cob, mussels, clams, and cornbread, It is almost a southern-style seafood joint, as the place also has fried chicken with delicious bread crumbs!
St. George’s Fish & Chips
The only traditional “fish and chips” stand to make the list, St. George’s has incredible fried fish and chicken options. Of course, their namesake is the golden goose, but the establishment also has delicious crab sticks, calamari rings, and even fried snapper and flounder! All traditional fish and chips enthusiasts take note – this is the local fish & chips spot you’ve been missing!
Argo Fishop has one of the best seafood restaurant interiors in the city; we hope you get a chance to visit post-Covid! Argo essentially makes seafood burgers and tacos, along with Argo’s Favorites. These dishes are completely unique, offering pan fried and breaded options. On top of that, Argo serves Greek Fish Soup, king salmon, live pacific oysters. However, if we had to recommend one dish, it would be the Portarlington Mussels. Delicious.
Another seafood restaurant in Fitzroy geared toward fish and chips, Hooked Fitzroy fills out its menu with specialty seafood burger and burrito options, giving those sick of traditional seafood presentation a new option! Breaded seafood delights earn high ratings from Hooked, so we would go with the classic fish and chips or their Hooked Reel Deals for a family-sized meal!
