Have you heard of Inland Seafood? If you haven’t heard of them before, you’ve almost surely eaten their food at one of the many, many restaurants the supply in and around the Atlanta area. They’ve been around for about 35 years and although the name “seafood” is part of their name, they supply beef and poultry too. Inland Seafood hosts several events that are a seafood lovers dream. To say I was ecstatic when they invited me to their vendor dinner at Ray’s in the City earlier this fall, is an understatement.
Scattered throughout the restaurant were tempting selections of seafood among other items. The first appetizer section of smoked salmon, tuna sashimi and meats was enough to fulfill a hearty appetite, but I was careful to pace myself as I saw the lobster, crab and shrimp display on my first perusal of the evening’s offerings.
Needless to say, I gorged myself on the above shellfish. I don’t like to get too messy and peel and eat shrimp aren’t my favorite but these jumbo shrimp were too fantastic to pass up. And crab that I don’t have to do any work to get to the meat? Sign me up. Kudos to Ray’s in the City and Inland Seafood for putting together such a fantastic spread.
While dinners like this aren’t available to the public, it is nice to know that you can find this quality at local restaurants.

There are also a number of Inland Seafood retail items that are available at your local grocery store like their Seafood Tortas, perfect for holiday entertaining.
Tip: If you go to Ray’s in the City for dinner on Sunday evenings, there is free parking in the garage around the corner.
