Second Place: Hard Shell
Third Place: Bonefish Grill
Maybe what readers love about a good seafood restaurant are multiple locations because all three winners can be found in more than one place. Pescados made a name for itself by flying in only the freshest fish and offering rarely seen varieties prepared creatively in a sunny and colorful dining room. The Hard Shell, around since the 20th century, has a reputation for great deals such as Monday's lobster night and room for large parties. And Bonefish is making inroads in the local scene with a proven formula.
