Fish Restaurant in Plano

Haven't updated here in a long time... but I wanted to pimp out my favorite local fish place.

It's Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill, located off Preston, just south of Spring Creek behind Mi Cocina.

They're also on Facebook.

A few details:

  • They do lunch and dinner.

  • I've had arctic char, lemon sole, salmon, haddock, halibut, boston blue fish, scallops, shrimp, lobster, crab cakes, smoked salmon, swordfish, clam chowder, etc.

  • Excellent quality of food and lots of selection.

  • Ordering is simple... look at the menu and order at the counter. They bring you fresh bread with olive oil and herbs, and they bring your drinks and food out to you when it's ready.

  • Cost is reasonable. Chef specials in the $20s range (this is fine-dining quality food), and typical menu items like fish tacos, fish & chips, etc are around $10... and the range goes above and below that.

  • This is primarily a fish place, but they do have a few items that aren't fish or meat based.

  • They do have wine and beer.

They always have the freshest fish, and I think it's definitely some of the best fish in the area. The owner was a head fishmonger for Central Market and Whole Foods, so he uses those connections to get his fish directly from the source... no middle man! That means fresher fish than is usually available to the general public in DFW. They fillet the fish on site of course. Dishes are chef-prepared. The cool thing about this place is that it's so casual. It's just a little hole in the wall, and you walk in and it smells FRESH... not that fishy smell.

The fish in the case is a tad bit more expensive than it is at other places, like Sprouts or the grocery store, but the freshness factor and quality of product (they will happily tell you where everything comes from) more than makes up for the price, in my opinion.

Often they prepare crab cakes and other fish for you to take home and all it requires is a pan sear or reheat.

If you need a large quantity of fish (like for a fish fry), let them know and they can get it and prepare it for you.

Also... if you're not intrigued by anything on the menu, they can grill up any of the fish in the case, and prepare it in a variety of ways. Just ask!

They smoke their own salmon, and they have a rockin' salmon sandwich.

I really love this place. Nice, hard-working people, quality fish, reliable, etc... and everything I've tried, I've loved.

Has anyone else eaten at Sea Breeze?

I haven't eaten there, but I've heard really good things about them. We were at Red Lobster a month ago and our waiter actually told us about them (we had never heard of them before). I just need to get over there and try out the food now :)
