Even though Springfield is smack dab in the middle of the country, you’ll find delicious, fresh seafood served up at area restaurants. From shrimp to alligator and everything in between, you’ll enjoy the options offered up by steakhouses, cafes and other restaurants throughout the city.

Fuji Japanese Seafood & Steakhouse, Jimm’s Steakhouse & Pub and Wilder’s Steakhouse are among those in the steakhouse category where you can enjoy lobster, fish, sushi and other options.

For something unusual, try the fried alligator at Hemingway’s Blue Water Cafe inside Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World or the chupe grande - seafood stew with crawfish, shrimp and calamari - at the Peruvian-inspired Cafe Cusco on Historic C-Street.

You can’t go wrong with the huge shrimp cocktail, lobster mac and cheese and the tiger tuna at Fire & Ice, the city’s only ice bar.
