The Best Seafood Restaurants in Denver

The OpenTable Team

In Denver, you enjoy the great outdoors as much as the urban setting of the city. Locals and visitors alike love the hiking, camping, mountain views, crisp air and mild weather in this western Rocky Mountain paradise. The Mile High City also houses famous attractions like Coors Field, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Denver Zoo and Larimer Square. The city has a history of pioneers and gold mines, but today has grown into a modern oasis, filled with culture, sights and, of course, delicious food. Whether hanging out downtown or exploring the outer neighborhoods, you can find amazing dining everywhere including seafood. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? Welcome to our Tastemaker Lists. We asked serious foodies where they go to find the freshest, most delicious fish. Check out this Tastemaker list of places to find the best seafood in Denver.
