Scottsdale, Arizona is known for its stunning desert landscapes and vibrant culinary scene. Amid the cacti and red rocks, you might be surprised to find a seafood haven – Lure Fish House. This family-owned restaurant is a true gem, and after experiencing it for the first time, I can confidently say, it lives up to the hype. Join me on a journey through the flavors and ambience of this seafood sanctuary.
Lure Fish House Scottsdale welcomes you with a relaxed coastal vibe, complete with nautical decor that puts you in the mood for an oceanic adventure. The open layout and large windows give you the perfect view of the Arizona desert while enjoying the freshest seafood.
From the moment the calamari landed on our table, we knew we were in for a treat. The mussels, branzino, sea bass, linguine with clam sauce, and shrimp and grits were all exceptional. The menu is a testament to their dedication to sustainable seafood and local produce.
Lure Fish House Scottsdale offers a full bar with specialty cocktails made from freshly squeezed fruit juices. If you’re in the mood for something refreshing, their raw bar serves fresh oysters.
Now, let’s delve into the culinary journey. Our evening began with the calamari, crispy and perfectly seasoned. But the mussels stole the show with their succulent broth and generous serving size, setting the tone for what was to come.
I opted for the branzino, a white fish that was flaky and tender, perfectly complemented by the cilantro lime rice and buttery squash. Across the table, my cousin enjoyed the sea bass with rice and sweet potato, a harmonious medley of flavors. Another cousin indulged in linguine with clam sauce, a dish she’d ordered before and raved about. Her husband was equally impressed with the shrimp and grits, served atop a delectable polenta.
The complimentary bread and butter were a nice touch, and the staff happily replenished our breadbasket upon request.
For dessert, we sampled key lime pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and blueberry crumble with vanilla ice cream. While the key lime pie was nice and the pumpkin cheesecake was delicious, the blueberry crumble left something to be desired.
The menu at Lure Fish House Scottsdale is extensive, offering something for everyone, from fish and chips for the little ones to tantalizing options like the tuna ponzu and Brussels sprouts. One dish you absolutely must try is the charbroiled oysters. They come six per appetizer, but I guarantee you’ll want to order 18 more; they are that good.
Our experience at Lure Fish House Scottsdale was nothing short of incredible. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, and the ambiance was inviting. We stumbled upon this gem while looking for a local seafood restaurant with a diverse menu and cocktail list, and we left with smiles on our faces and plans to return soon.
If you’re a seafood lover or just someone seeking a delightful dining experience, Lure Fish House in Scottsdale is a must-visit. The friendly staff and prompt service make it even more appealing. We highly recommend checking it out if you’re in the Scottsdale area. You won’t be disappointed!
