Kansas Hays may be landlocked, but this city still manages to bring in fresh seafood for the enjoyment of those who live there.
Here are three of the best seafood restaurants in the northwestern Kansas area.
Sake2me Sushi & Seafood Grille
Hailed as a culinary destination, Sake2me Sushi & Seafood Grille has earned rave reviews from first-time visitors and returning guests. The popular establishment is the brainchild of Mike Huskey, a sushi and seafood enthusiast who wanted to share his love for the food. His goal was to introduce unique seafood dishes to the Kansas Hays community and he did just that.
Along with the restaurant’s trademark seafood dishes and trendy sushi bar, Sake2me Sushi also serves fusion Asian cuisine. Some of its many bestsellers are their lobster mac and cheese, salmon burger, and Captain Crunch roll. Oysters, clams, and mussels are also a crowd favorite. The restaurant has a full-service bar with 12 craft beers on tap and a delivery service through Hays2Go.
Head on over to Sake2me Sushi and Seafood Grille on 2306 Vine Street Hays, Kansas for lunch, dinner, or drinks. The restaurant is open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Mondays to Saturdays. You can find out more from their website here.
