Serious chefs—and we have plenty of those—understand that the key to great seafood is freshness. It needs to travel from the boat to your plate in hours, not days. So while we’re may be nestled into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, take one bite of seafood from these incredible restaurants and you’ll swear you can hear the waves lapping at the shoreline.

Don't wait until you're hangry! Stake (steak?) out a table for some fine dining—with a side of sweet Southern hospitality.
