Locally sourced seafood always tastes fresh, unlike the fish that have to swim in through the salmon pipeline from Asia. Eat a less-exhausted catch with this Groupon.

Lou's Fish Shack
There's lots of fresh seafood to choose from at Lou's Fish Shack. Menu options range from steamed clams to blackened-Pacific-snapper sandwiches served with housemade tartar sauce, to the chagrin of Kraft's tartar-sauce team. And for the diner who wants it all, there's the Dungeness crab cioppino, a tomato-based stew filled with the namesake crab, shrimp, calamari, mussels, clams, bay scallops, and snapper. From their kitchen on Fisherman's Wharf's pier 47, Lou's chefs prepare and cook each dish in house with catches sourced from local markets. The same goes for the restaurant's seafood alternatives, including new york strip steak and angel-hair pasta tossed with tomato, basil, and garlic.
Meals can unfold on a sidewalk patio or inside Lou's Fish Shack's two-floor restaurant, where natural light passing through large windows illuminates decor fashioned from repurposed wood and metal. Each Friday through Sunday night, the restaurant's two levels fill with the dulcet tones of the Bay Area's top blues musicians.
