People stand in line to eat at Oyster Bar at Palace Station, which sits in the middle of the casino floor. And it offers so much more than oysters. Belly up to the bar and watch the chefs steam clams and dole out homemade chowders and seafood pastas. Diners can request a level of spice on their Cajun-style seafood, or go for Creole gumbo or Bourbon Street jambalaya.

Luke’s Lobster

The seafood from Luke’s at the front of Fashion Show is sustainable and traceable, using ethically minded practices, and all of this East Coast seafood has calorie counts next to their name. The lobster roll is an obvious must try, but another equally delicious option is the crab roll. Luke’s also offer DIY kits to make lobster rolls at home and seafood by the pound.

Amalfi by Bobby Flay

Copy Link

The only thing fresher than the cool blues and airy arched entranced to Bobby Flay’s Amalfi is the neatly arranged fish that lay on beds of ice within the restaurant’s fish market. Take advantage of the on-site fishmonger, who can share where the fish is from, when it arrived in Las Vegas, and other detailed requests. Select your preferred golden snapper, red snapper, black bass, branzino, or Carabinero shrimp, and order it grilled over charcoal or roasted al forno and served with the choices of Meyer lemon and capers, red pepper and Calabrian chile pesto, or salsa verde.
