Welcome to


Waterfront Seafood

Iowa’s Award Winning
Seafood Since 1984.

Waterfront has been a family-owned business in West Des Moines since 1984. Our family wanted to bring quality seafood to the Des Moines area and this idea began with a fresh fish market that has grown to a restaurant, sushi, and oyster bar. We are proud to have grown into the midwest’s premier establishment for all things seafood.

We have been buying fresh fish from the same people for many years. Their experience and expertise help bring the highest quality fish and seafood from their boat to your plate.

Our trained staff are here to answer all of your questions about cooking techniques, seasonings, and storage. We want you to enjoy and feel comfortable cooking our fresh fish at home. We also carry spices and kitchen tools that will make cooking fun and easy.

You can be assured if we are not satisfied with what’s coming in our back door, it won’t go out our front door.

Waterfront Seafood is the gold standard in fresh and quality seafood. Our stock comes from sustainable sources right off the dock. Quality is guaranteed with our dock-to-plate process and we butcher on site to lock in the freshness. Come in and taste the difference.
