After googling "seafood boil", it seems like there's a lot of prepping to do with shrimp, king crab legs, clams, and whatever else goes into the pot. It looks like people enjoy a lot of seasoning with potatoes and ears of fresh yellow cut corn. And it takes time. Ain't nobody got THAT. So, let's look forward to visiting Hooked Seafood Boil and Bar, placing our order and chow down. We'll keep watching for the opening date!

I asked a few co-workers where they go for seafood in the Tri-Cities. As it turns out, we do have quite a few seafood restaurants.

Seafood Restaurants in Tri-Cities

Of course, there's Red Lobster on Columbia Center Boulevard. The co-workers all agreed that Red Lobster's biscuits are the best!

Another favorite among the worker's was Anthony's at Columbia Point in Richland. Did you know Anthony's opened their own seafood company in 1984? Anthony's locations serve seafood and shellfish from the Northwest, Hawaii, and Alaska.

Some other seafood restaurants in the Tri-Cities you can visit are The Crazy Crab Place in Kennewick. They boast "a unique seafood experience with a Mexican flare."

There's also Bonefish Grill in Richland, featuring Bang Bang Shrimp and Bang Bang Tacos. One person I talked with was exceptionally passionate about these selections.

And, not to be left out, Cedars at Pier One on Clover Island in Kennewick. The view of the Columbia River is exceptional.

YouGov investigated the most popular dining brands in the country, and Stacker compiled the list to give readers context on the findings. Read on to look through America's vast and divergent variety of restaurants—maybe you'll even find a favorite or two.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.

Regional Fast Food Chains Tri-Cities Needs

As Tri-Cities keeps growing, we've seen more fast-food chains bring their food into our community. But we'd be lying if we said we didn't want a few more to set up shop down the street. Chicken sandwiches, sliders, deep-dish pizza; we'll take it all. These are the regional joints we can't wait to welcome with open mouths.
