Joe Muer Seafood, an iconic staple in metro Detroit since 1929, is now open in Nashville.

Owned by Joe Vicari Restaurant Group, the fine-dining seafood restaurant joins the vibrant downtown district of Capitol View at 500 11th Ave. The 12,000-square-foot restaurant will seat more than 300 guests through its 200-seat dining room, central bar and two-sided 80-seat patio. Two private dining rooms are available to reserve that accommodate up to 40 people or a combined 80-100 guests. This is the first Joe Muer Seafood location outside of Michigan.

“Our team is thrilled to finally be open in Nashville,” said Joe Vicari, president of Joe Vicari Restaurant Group. “We have been greeted with the utmost Southern hospitality since announcing our first location outside of Detroit, and we are excited to bring our 90-year legacy to this energetic, culinary city.”

Joe Muer Seafood, known for winning Best Seafood Restaurant by HOUR Detroit Magazine 11 years in a row, offers an upscale dining experience focused on fresh, sustainable seafood flown in from the finest purveyors across the globe. The menu, which also showcases premium aged meats, sushi and an award -winning wine list, is inspired by local ingredients and regional cooking styles. Certified Master Chef® Daniel Scannell and Chef Jim Oppat are leading the kitchen in Nashville.

Exclusive dishes headline Nashville’s menu as an homage to the restaurant’s new home. Interesting Southern dishes are sure to spark curiosity, like a bacon-wrapped shrimp stuffed with crab imperial and a blackened redfish with crawdad “yabby” butter. Favorites from the Detroit menu include a crab stuffed flounder with grainy mustard beurre blanc sauce and a fresh Dover sole fillet, served tableside, with Herbs de Provence, brown butter and lemon—all representative of the Joe Muer flair.
