20 Feet Seafood Joint

1160 Peavy Road Dallas, TX 75218 | White Rock Lake Area | 972-707-7442

Location Description:

20 Feet is what you get when two really good chefs try to simultaneously capture the casual elegance of a small Manhattan seafood restaurant and the glorious excess of a New England clam shack. The small dining room joins Good 2 Go Taco and Goodfriend on Peavy Road in East Dallas, rounding out a trifecta of solid restaurants drawing a strong neighborhood following. Everything that emerges from 20 Feet's bubbling oil is delicious, from the fish and chips to the shrimp and oysters that make their way into compelling po-boy sandwiches, but you don’t have to love grease to dig 20 Feet. A bowl of ramen is on the menu, along with a great banh mi, and mussels that recall chef/owner Marc Cassel's days at The Green Room in Deep Ellum so many years ago. Drive down Garland Road towards Peavy Road and look for the badass pirate flag. Stellar seafood awaits.
