Best Seafood

The Five Fishermen, 1740 Argyle, 422-4421

After more than 25 years in business, the Five Fishermen Restaurant really has the seafood thing down. Though they sell a lot of lobster and halibut, it’s mostly to tourists, says office manager Michele Thompson. “The locals tend to not overdo it on the lobster.” She says the seafood platter is popular, and so is the salmon, and Thompson recommends the daily special, which really does come straight from fishermen’s boats.

Runner-up: McKelvie’s, 1680 Lower Water, 421-6161
