From appetizers and salads to complete entrees, we put our heart and soul into every Reno seafood dish prepared at The Grill. Whether you’re looking for a hearty meal or something light, you’ll always find something on the menu that catches your eye, especially our fresh-caught fish. Take a look at some of our favorite Reno seafood dishes at The Grill below!
Ahi tuna is a seafood commodity praised for its steak-like consistency and beloved by those who do and don’t enjoy seafood. A popular Reno seafood appetizer here at The Grill is our Seared Ahi which is encrusted in an organic spice mix and paired with our citrus slaw. On the side is a Serrano Soy dipping sauce that accentuates the flavor of the ahi excellently.
What better way to start off your lunch or dinner than with a seafood cocktail? This alcohol-free cocktail contains nothing but delicious shellfish including shrimp, prawns, and crab paired with our homemade cocktail sauce, slices of celery, and a lemon wedge for a refreshing palette cleanser to begin your meal.
The Szechuan Prawns salad is a lunch special consisting of colorful cabbage slaw, perfectly toasted mixed nuts, blue cheese crumbles, and a spicy vinaigrette dressing. Our Szechuan sauce is made from traditional Chinese ingredients such as fresh ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce, and refined spices like cayenne pepper and red chiles. Our delicious prawns are tossed in the Szechuan mixture, pan-seared to perfection, and placed atop some greens.
We’ve talked about the popular Louie-Louie salad in previous blogs as it’s a local favorite. This salad is made with only top-quality seafood and veggies. If you’re looking for the ultimate seafood salad, this should be your top choice. In the Louie-Louie, you’ll find delicious Dungeness crab, king crab, snow crab, prawns, and bay shrimp. The salad also consists of tomato, asparagus, hard-boiled egg, crisp Romaine lettuce, and avocado.
Our Sole Picatta is a fan favorite among locals. Made with fresh Petrale Sole, this dish combines delicious seafood with refreshing lemon and herb flavors for a simple yet elegant mid-day or evening meal. The dish also includes rice, sauteed spinach, and a tangy lemon caper Beurre Blanc sauce.
A tasteful salmon dish requires the finest fresh-caught salmon. Our Grilled Salmon begins with thick, fresh salmon fillets covered in a tart yet savory maple ponzu glaze. And the perfect salmon dish must be paired with an equally amazing side. To accompany the salmon is a delicious mushroom risotto and vegetable Du Jour.
If you’re a big seafood lover, then you’ll appreciate the love and care that goes into making mussels at The Grill. Made with ripe tomatoes, shallots, fresh basil, Dijon, and a sweet vermouth sauce. This meal is only available on our dinner menu, so if you’re looking to try this, be sure to set up an evening reservation with us!
When it comes to seafood, scallops are considered the cream of the crop. This light, yet rich dish, is not only sweet and buttery, but our scallops are also tender and succulent. The Grill Scallops are bacon-wrapped and served with our Chef's risotto, seasonal vegetable, and Chardonnay Shallot sauce.
Mac ‘N Cheese is a traditional, hearty American dish, but there’s nothing average about our seafood Mac ‘N Cheese. Made with Dungeness Crab, bacon, smoked gouda, herbed Panko, cavatappi pasta, and roasted crimini, this is a unique and remarkable take on an American classic. And to top off the dish, we’ve added decadent black truffles for a truly elegant meal.
If you enjoy a nice shrimp dish, then you’ll love our Colossal Prawns. While our prawns are anything but small, they sure know how to pack a flavorful punch. Our Grilled Prawns are made with white wine, butter, and garlic, tossed in fresh oregano, and paired with our vegetable Du Jour, delicious crostini, and sun-dried tomato risotto.
If fresh fish is is a must-have on your lunch or dinner menu, then need not worry. We offer an amazing cioppino, a classic fish stew created by our west coast neighbors in San Francisco as well as fresh halibut specials daily. Our halibut specials change every day and are available for lunch and dinner.

If you love seafood, there are few things more delicious than fresh fish. Real seafood lovers travel to Alaska, Maine, Florida, or the California coast for a fresh caught meal. For those in Reno who love halibut, a light-bodied white fish which takes on the flavor of its accompaniments, Alaska is the place to get it. In fact, people who really love halibut have been known to travel down to Homer, Alaska and buy their fish directly from the boat drop off point at the Homer Spit.
Fortunately, you don’t need to travel to Alaska to get fresh-caught halibut in Reno. You can get it right here in Reno! The Grill is considered the best restaurant in Reno because we bring in fresh-caught whole halibut from Alaska throughout the season, which runs from May until November. When we get it in, it weighs anywhere between 30 and 60 pounds! Our expert chefs portion it out and offer it pan seared, grilled, or sautéed. We offer a Chef’s special every day, where our expert chefs choose their favorite preparation and serve it to you. Even without the special, that 30 to 60-pound fish doesn’t last long and our amazing halibut goes fast.
This is because halibut fans aren’t limited to people who love seafood. Those who swear they don’t like fish find themselves ordering halibut when they see it on the menu. Unlike salmon, which has a very distinct flavor, halibut is light, flaky, and takes on the flavor of sauces and the other accompaniments on the plate. Try it with lemon, capers, and butter for a light lunch, or get our Pan Seared Halibut for dinner. This filet of halibut, featured on our Reno fine dining menu, is served with salt and pepper over poblano peppers, roasted garlic, and basic risotto. It’s topped with pesto artichoke hearts and garnished with an Aruglio tomato salad.
Halibut is filling, healthy, and absolutely delicious. So you can be health-conscious and feel like you are being a bit decadent too. Fresh halibut is a seasonal, available March through November. That means, if you want halibut so fresh you would swear you are in Alaska, you need to dine with the best restaurant in Reno to get this best-selling dish. Your taste buds will thank you for dining at The Grill. You can thank us for the unforgettable Reno fine dining experience you will have at our restaurant!
