Swan River Seafood Restaurant

Swan River is a glorious mix between a classic southern seafood market and a northern-styled restaurant, with large portions, racks of fish both rare and seasonal, and no gimmicks. The season determines the daily menus, which truly do rotate out depending on what is freshly caught from the previous afternoon.  From stone crab to marlin, you get a wide selection of always fresh and always finely-crafted seafood. The raw bar gives you plenty of options for at-home preparation, but you can also walk in and treat Swan River like a classic seafood eatery. The middle-room circle bar adds that extra touch.

Swan River is located in the PARKSHORE Center shopping plaza. The address is 3741 Tamiami Trail N. and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Ocean Prime

Everything from the Ocean Prime menu is crafted with care from scratch. The fish is caught in the wild or naturally harvested. What truly shines at Ocean Prime is the dinner menu. It is filled with classics, imported in and prepared with that Ocean Prime flair or caught locally. This includes Alaskan Stone Crab, Chilled Maine Lobster Tail, and Jumbo Crab Cakes. You also have an eclectic sushi menu that rivals the finest sushi joint in Florida, with options like the Dynamite Roll, Ocean Roll, and Spicy Tuna incorporating avocado, ahi tuna, chili garlic oil, and more.

It’s a dazzling blend of high-end seafood dinner plates and varied sushi selections. You can find Ocean prime at 699 5th Ave S, open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, to 11 p.m. on weekend nights, and to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Lima Restaurant and Pisco Bar

If you prefer your Florida seafood dining elegant, refined, and with splashes of exotic preparation, Lima is your top choice. Its Peruvian flair is wildly intoxicating, affecting everything from the brightly-layered décor to the exemplary menu. This is hand-crafted seafood and cocktails straight from the heart of a country known for innovating.

The menu is bold and bombastic, offering you Japanese-inspired ceviche, sensational pure shrimp coated in glazed yam, and seafood tacu tacu blended in a tomato-based stew.

Between shrimp ravioli and scallops, seafood dense rice and jalea, you have a variety of riveting and sincere seafood dishes sourced from Florida and accentuated with classic Peruvian flair and energy.

Lima is located at 11681 Collier Blvd near our Naples vacation rentals. It is open daily from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. (excluding Monday). It is open from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Lively, energetic, and coated in color, the dining hall is as inviting as it is beautiful. Once sitting down, you are introduced to an array of top-of-the-line locally-sourced seafood and steaks. A weekly happy hour is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Be sure to reserve your spot early. The Catch is located within the Naples Grande Beach Resort, located at 475 Seagate Dr.
