Despite the fact that it’s not a seaside city, Toronto is home to a wide array of seafood restaurants—from oyster bars to upscale eateries—that have become longstanding favorites of families and foodies across the city. Whether you come for the grilled salmon, the calamari, shellfish, or all of the above, here are some of the most popular seafood restaurants in Toronto.
Located on Adelaide near Jarvis and Queen East, the menus at Pearl Diver cover your seafood cravings for brunch, lunch, and dinner. This homey restaurant offers classic chowder, oyster, and calamari options, along with fish and chips, burgers, and much more.
Diana’s Seafood is one of the top seafood stores in the city, if you’re willing to take the trek east into Scarborough, and located right next door is the affiliated Oyster Bar. Offering lobster club sandwiches, clam chowders, grilled salmon, calamari, and, naturally, plenty of oysters, Diana’s also caters to hotels and restaurants throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
