When summer temps are ablaze in Arizona, seafood hits the spot. And nothing complements shrimp, crab, and lobster tails like some perfectly done steak. Here’s where to find the best surf and turf in Gilbert.
High Tide Seafood Bar & Grill
High Tide is a seafood lover’s paradise. Order the Rip Tide Tower to try a little bit of everything – oysters, shrimp, crab legs, mussels, clams, lobster tails, scallops, and smoked trout roe. Other house specialties include Louisiana gumbo, seared yellowfin ahi tuna, and a truly unique take on surf and turf: a juicy burger topped with lettuce, tomato, remoulade, and buttery king crab on a toasted brioche bun.
Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar
Sure, Blue Wasabi is best-known for its creative sushi rolls. With so many cleverly named options – like Eating Nemo, Shrimp Bizkit, and Squid Vicious – it’s easy to overlook their small plate options. But don’t sleep on their amazing beef. Cooked to perfection (and as tender as sashimi), Blue Wasabi’s baby back ribs, mini buddha burgers, and filet mignon skewers will have you convinced you’re at a steakhouse.
Firebirds Wood Fired Grill
Promotion? Engagement? Birthday? Ideal for special occasions, Firebirds’ classic take on surf and turf is – chef’s kiss – spectacular. Order the bacon-wrapped filet with half a lobster tail or bacon-wrapped tenderloin with Key lime shrimp. You truly can’t go wrong either way.
