    Eating fish is always a little bit of a risk when eating out. I'm not sure why, but I remember my Mom always saying to be careful eating fish when eating out....

    With so many seafood dishes served in Las Vegas and made with many added ingredients, do you feel safe eating fish in Vegas?
    I'm a little leary as I don't want to risk sickness there as time in Vegas is so precious.

    How do you feel about eating fish in Vegas.?

    Well we all know how this board feels about the crab legs, and I'd sure as shit love to try then some day. No issue eating seafood in the desert for me

    What happens to the crabs after they lose their legs. Are they then fitted with tiny crutches??

    I'm from Maryland originally. There's a few places out there called Crab Corner...authentic Maryland-style crabcakes, crab soup, etc. They fly in stuff daily and said they get their supply from the same place the name places (Puck, Ramsey) do. I'm always leery to try seafood outside of the Mid-Atlantic, but Vegas has it figured out, IMO. And not to stump for Crab Corner, but if you're a fan, check it out. Great prices, amazing food. Not much in the way of scenery or ambiance, but it's a winner.

    this is something that I would not worry about. Most of the hotel restaurants are going through so much fish daily that everything would be fresh (brought in recently). I would be more worried about some Midwest / hole in the wall / middle of nowhere restaurant serving "fresh" salmon. Yeah right, you are flying in your salmon daily, lol

    "Always"? I've never had a problem. Supply chain is the secret to quality fish, and Vegas has essentially a never-stopping conveyor belt to the coasts. And as for sea spiders, so much of that stuff is cooked and flash-frozen immediately upon hitting the shore that it is a moot point.

    Please read #2 and #6 of the article attached. I know this as I used to manage a restaurant and a restaurant can legitimately say Fresh Florida Grouper and it is not and not be subject to fines, etc., at least when I was in the business. Also, to save on shipping costs there are more and more vendors looking at opening production facilities within the local area. The article is from a few years ago, but can only imagine there is a greater production now in the desert?

    I didn't read the article, but Vegas gets most of their fish flown in or trucked in daily from the L.A. ports and fish markets

    I can only assume the place is closed now, I remember hearing about this in a national trade magazine a few years ago, never searched until now.
