    Heading to Vegas with my pops this weekend. I want to take him out for a Father's Day meal on Sunday and he's a big seafood lover. So I'd like to take him to a nice seafood place. Unfortunately, I'm not terribly well versed on the seafood options in Vegas. (Sadly, I developed an allergy to shrimp and lobster about 10-15 years ago so I usually just stay away from seafood joints to avoid the temptation.:cry: But there's plenty of other seafood I can eat.)

    I'm not really concerned with the budget...but there might be some attire-related concerns. It's going to be hotter than balls and we both want to pack on the light side. We'll have khakis/nice jeans, button-up collared shirts and nice shoes...but no "dress" slacks or jackets. So I guess I'm asking: what's the absolute "best" meal we can get dressed in such a manner*? Oh, and I'd like to stay on the strip or thereabouts.

    Many thanks! :beer:



    * I'm not looking to just "not be thrown out of the joint". I don't want to look out of place compared with the average diner of the establishment.

    Since Seablue closed, Joe's Stone Crab at the Forum Shops has become my favorite for seafood on the strip. Not only is the crab stellar, but the rest of the menu is pretty damn delicious. I haven't tried the steaks yet, though.

    I like it better than Aquaknox, American Fish, Michael Mina, and Milos (although, the lunch special is a great value).

    Sage and Jean Georges might not be known for seafood, but I've had fantastic fish at both.

    Another vote for Joe's Stone Crab... The service is top notch and both the surf and turf are excellent. You should feel comortable there in a collared shirt.

    Yet another vote for Joe's... not to be confused with Joe's Crabshack!

    You might also want to consider Lakeside Seafood at Wynn. I was there this past weekend, and the atmosphere was second to none, the food and service were fantastic. Staff was very friendly and attentive also.

    From Wikipedia: In 1999, Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises became involved and opened a branch in Chicago, followed by the 2005 opening in Las Vegas, NV. These branches are known as "Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab" to set them apart from the 4th generation owned Miami original.,[3][4]
