Seafood Atlantic


Lunch at Seafood Atlantic, Cocoa Beach's premiere fish market and restaurant, is no-frills dining at its finest. Plastic seating, plates and utensils are overshadowed by unobstructed ocean views and the freshest seafood on the Space Coast. Six commercial boats, captained by lifelong fishermen, keep Seafood Atlantic swimming in everything from blue crab, Florida lobster and octopus, to tilefish, wahoo and mahi mahi. In addition to specials dictated by the day's catch, the seafood-only menu offers a number of options including sandwiches, wraps and kabobs made from your choice of fish (premium fish like bigeye tuna and pampano cost $6 extra), oysters, steamers, shrimp, scallops, snow crab legs, crab cakes, mussels and lobster.

The Fish Sandwich Basket's $10 price tag makes it one of Cocoa Beach's best bargains. A generous piece of fish is brushed with Tobago Keys' mustard-based Peruvian Gold Grilling Sauce, grilled to perfection, sandwiched between a soft baguette with lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo (add $.50 for provolone cheese), and served with a bag of Cape Cod chips and a crunchy pickle spear.
