Before reading what we were comparing, I thought WTH is Tampa doing in with these cities, but their seafood is truly underrated. Best crab legs of my life were when I would visit Tampa on the weekends when I was going to UF. The food is so fresh. I would never eat seafood in Omaha, Nebraska, but Tampa, Florida is worth it.

I go to Baltimore for seafood and if you're aware of this regions traffic then you can bet your socks that I'm taking a gamble driving for stellar seafood.

Baltimore.

No seconds.

All of these places offer fresh local seafood. Personally I prefer Seattle because of its own local offerings, as well as its proximity to the amazing bounty from Alaskan waters. The local fresh salmon, halibut, clams, mussels,oysters, shrimp, dungeness crab, tuna, squid, cod and petrale sole, etc...mmmmmercy me that's some good stuff.

And let's face it, The Pike Place Market rocks.

This really comes down to your preference. I like the regional offerings of Tampa better than the other cities. Tampa Bay Area has access to fresh Cobia, Snook, Tarpon, Sheephead, Amber Jack, Mackeral, Mai Mai, Red Snapper, Red Fish, blue crab and so much more.

There are many great places in the Tampa/St Pete metro to eat fresh seafood.

I would take out Tampa and put New Orleans into this list.

Also, Portland, Maine is top notch, it's just a small city.

Tampa has access to seafood, but the city isn't known for it. I can only think of two small fish markets off the top of my head in fact. lol.

New Orleans should totally go on that list though. Everything you find in Tampa is found in New Orleans but in much larger quantities.
