Plus, we’ve even helped you out and marked all of the restaurants on this list that accept GiftYa.
As a reminder a GiftYa digital gift card is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. A gift card that functions just like every other gift card. It lets you make purchases at a participating bar, restaurant, or store up to the face value of the gift card. However, unlike traditional gift cards. GiftYa digital gift cards come with a few additional benefits. For instance, unlike a traditional gift card, a GiftYa can be sent straight to your phone in seconds. That way you don’t need to deliver a GiftYa in person if you want to give it as a gift. You don’t even have to go to a store in person if you want one for yourself. You can just visit the GiftYa website and pick one up today.
Since GiftYa cards are sent directly to your phone you never have to worry about misplacing them or forgetting to take them with you. In most instances you are going to have your phone with you so in most instances you will have your GiftYa cards right in your pocket. In addition to that, your GiftYa also keeps track of the balance for you. Which is so much nicer than having to try to remember how much was left over on those antiquated plastic gift cards. I mean you can’t write it on them very easily so idk what you’re supposed to do if you don’t use the total value the first time? Just guess the next time you are in town?
35202 South Dixie Hwy | Florida City
The Krab Kingz kingdom has slowly been expanding across the nation, but their Florida City location is definitely top notch. Located so close to the water, you can be sure that the seafood they’re serving up is exceptionally fresh. They are, of course, known for their crab legs, but the menu has plenty of other options as well.
Locals love the blackened salmon (served with a refreshing slice of lemon) and the crispy fried shrimp. Looking for something a little more filling? The shrimp pasta is cheesy perfection, and the po boy sandwich won’t disappoint.
“I am in town visiting on vacation. I had a craving for seafood this is definitely a good spot the menu has a lot of options of different kinds of fish. I had fried fish but I'm sure can have grilled or something healthier. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Snapper. Fried Fish with Lobster and Shrimp” - Yelp Review

35601 SW 192 Ave | Homestead
I know what you’re thinking: seafood? From the back of a truck? But stay with me. Sometimes the best meals come from unexpected places. Ceviche 3 ajis is one of Homestead’s hidden gems. The seafood is fresh and the flavors are bold – and with a 5-star rating on Yelp, it’s safe to say the locals are loving it.
The Ceviche Clasico is a popular item for seafood fans made up of mixed squid, fish, shrimp, fried fish fingers, sweet potato, corn and onion. But there’s more on the menu than simply fish, for anyone in your group that’s more of a landlubber. Try the Lomo Saltado de Carne – the onion, tomato, cilantro, beef loin dish is packed full of flavor for a meal you won’t soon forget.
“This Peruvian food truck has fresh seafood and ceviche. It is a delicious and hidden spot down the road from the popular Robert is Here food stand. Menu is in Spanish so use google translate or be adventurous. Great spot for authentic Peruvian cuisine!” - Yelp Review

So far we’ve seen Louisiana style low country boils and authentic ceviche, but now get ready to elevate your seafood dining experience with one of the fancier seafood restaurants on this list. The Islander at Ocean Reef Club is an upscale establishment. Open for dinner service only, reservations are required. And be sure to leave your ripped up jeans at home – men are required to wear collared shirts for dinner (although walking shorts and nice jeans are permitted), and women should plan an equally nice outfit.
Once you’re seated, you’ll be met by a selection of seafood sourced fresh from local fishermen. The grouper is one of the most popular items on the menu, but be sure to take a look at the sushi menu as well. Prepared by Sushi Chef Eric Andreu, all sushi and sashimi items are made fresh to order.
“One of our favorite dinner spots at ORC. Everything we have ordered here has been Phenomenal , the dirty martinis are my favorite. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the fish taste fresh. It's great for a romantic dinner or great for accommodating a larger group for dinner. Definitely recommend.” - Yelp Review

It's a pretty penny but the food has been delicious each time I've been here and worth every cent! I know it says seafood in the name but one of the best steaks I've had has been here.
