Seafood Specials For The Lent Season

Many places traditionally offer seafood specials during Lent, as many people abstain from meat parts of or throughout Lent.  This year, Lent is from Wednesday, March 2 (Ash Wednesday) through Easter Sunday on April 17.  Here are the top seafood restaurant deals ranging from fast food to fine dining!

EatDrinkDeals includes links to restaurant websites where you can confirm the deal and find further information.  We won’t post deals that cannot be verified from a source such as a restaurant website, social media account, or press release.  We’ll keep adding deals to this roundup as we get past Fat Tuesday and into Lent, so check back with us!  Email us at if we’ve missed any seafood deals!
