The word dive isn't necessarily a bad descriptor. Featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, this Deerfield Beach seafood shack is widely known for serving up super fresh fish at a price that won't break the budget. The raw offers a wide selection of items like lobster, stone crabs, Ipswich clams, and raw Oysters to oysters Rockefeller, steamed shrimp, and more. If heartier options are what you're looking for, the homey seafood shack features a wide selection of items from the fryer and some fresh fish sandwiches that will have you coming back -- over and over again -- for more.
With more than 17 years under its belt, this Intracoastal Waterway spot should be considered the grandfather of the upscale waterfront seafood restaurant. In order to stay in business that long, you have to be constantly striving to be at the top of your game. Since its inception, the restaurant has brought home numerous New Times awards, including Best Outdoor Dining, Best Seafood Restaurant, and Best Waterfront Dining. That doesn't mean that's all it deserves. With a $48.95-per-person all-inclusive brunch that includes a massive raw bar, budget-friendly happy hour, frequent wine dinners, and occasional cooking courses specializing in -- you guessed it -- fish and other sea creatures, it's no wonder it keeps racking up all the awards.
