Coming from Boston... we are big seafood eaters. Mmmm.... lobster. Am I going to have to give that all up when we move to the midlands?

I am half-joking here.

You won't have to completely give it up, there are places to get it. It for sure won't be as fresh. You'll just have to get a taste for some good steak!!

There are places that have it flown in fresh daily... from boat to dock to plane to Omaha 24 hours... I'm not a big seafood guy so can't recommend, but check out Absolutely Fresh Seafood I think its one of those that do it that way.

Absolutely Fresh is good. They are just down the street from my house (Downtown) and they have one other location but I don't know where it is. Also if anyone tells you Joe Tess is a good place to go for fish, PASS. WAY over hyped.

It will almost be worth it to get a chance to enjoy a real steak on a regular basis.

Well, that's good to hear. My husband was in Kansas City on business recently, and he ordered fish at a restaurant there. The guy he was with looked at him like he was crazy and said, "Man, you are brave."

Yes, you are right about catfish and carp, but the poster did say...
Coming from Boston... we are big seafood eaters

Still a decent place and nice atmosphere. Good prices too.

Toe Tess is an experience and I do agree they should maybe check it out... its a place you either love or hate... I think most that love it are midwestern that like lakefood, unlike the easterners who know seafood (just kidding-I understand your point)
