Where to go for seafood?

crab legs genericBarbara asks via Twitter:

Where can I get some yummy crab legs? I moved here a few months ago and I am craving some good crab and seafood!

We'll modify Barbara's question a bit: If you were to recommend one restaurant in the Capital Region for seafood, which place would it be?

Got a place in mind? Please share!

Boston.

There is only one place to go for seafood north of new york city:

http://www.gadaletos.com/ alas its in New Paltz, but its so worth the drive. we make the trek every other month or so.

best best best the lobsta rool is better than anything I have had on the eastern seaboard, including Maine, the fish selection is unbelievable including crab legs, and its the only place I have seen whole mackerel for sale.

The wait staff is very knowledgeable and in the market the selection is better than any of the so called fish markets here in the capital region.

Normally, I'd agree with Konge--we're too small a market and too far from the ocean to get really quality, beautifully-prepared seafood--but I had amazing lobster bisque at the Gingerman in Albany recently. I don't know about crab legs, but if you're jonesing for bisque, go to the Gingerman.

Matt's Cape House in Clifton Park had awesome lobster rolls,great potoato salad, and cole slaw.

Off Shore Pier in East Greenbush. They have a restaurant and a fish market if you wan to make them yourself.

It's been years since I was in, but one of the best, and freshest seafood restaurants around is still Reel Seafood Co. on Wolf Rd. in Albany. Pricey by Olive Garden standards, I suppose, but worth it for the quality.

I agree that Reel Seafood is good, but I have really enjoyed the seafood dishes at Provence as much as their more traditional boeuf bourguignon and french onion soup type stuff. It is really fresh and often the seafood specials are innovative.

The Table Hopping crowd covered crab legs last month:

I had some wonderful Mussels at the Merry Monk last night!

If someone from out of town asked me where to get crab legs I suggest Reel Seafood.

You guys and your fancy crab legs. As a misplaced Southerner, I would like a place to get fried fish (if you can point me in the direction of fried oysters, I will love you forever) that isn't Ted's. No offense, Ted, but you're not really scratching my itch with your tiny clam strips and hot dog bun.

What is the hot dog bun for anyway?

New World Bistro on Delaware has great fish specials

This may not hit the spot, but I think the seafood dishes at Blue Spice are awesome.

While I understand why they're saying there isn't enough demand, I also am positive I would use cabs more if they were even slightly more affordable and reliable. I have zero interest in using the taxis in Albany, and would rather alter my plans (if possible) than use their service. I feel like the cab companies are saying this is a demand issue, when really it's just a "I dislike you so much, I'd rather find ANY alternative to avoiding you" issue.
