Anywhere serving seafood miles from the sea faces a tall order to ensure their food is of good quality, especially with so many excellent eateries not far away on the coast. However, Blue Sea Seafood and Bar in Shirlington at 4251 Campbell Ave. has found the right way to do it, as their restaurant and bar is always filled to the brim with locals and tourists alike.
The menu and raw seafood bar selections include such favorites including shrimp, fresh crab, scallops and local oysters that are shucked at the bar. The seafood can be ordered on its own or in combination platters and served any which way a customer desires. The $80 Lobster Special for Two is a popular deal that includes wine, two succulent lobsters, two sides, soups, salads and desserts.
In addition to that delectable special, the extensive Blue Sea menu also has some phenomenal choices. Among those items that are not to be missed are the spectacular crab cake sandwich and the fish tacos. The calamari is crispy and packed full of flavor, while the mahi mahi and the pecan crusted salmon are excellent choices. Among their varied selection of salads, two highly recommended choices are the grilled tuna on arugula and the sesame salmon cucumber salad.
