20 Feet Seafood Joint

Map & Directions 1160 Peavy Road
Dallas, TX 75218
  • Tue-Thu, Sun 11 am - 9 pm Fri-Sat 11 am - 10 pm


Dallas Observer's 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.

The fish and chips have always been moist, flavorful and definately... More >>

    We went to this spot after reading about it in a couple of editorial food reviews. I ordered the fried oysters. The oysters were minuscule - almost undetectable - inside thick, over-fried blankets of breading. My husband ordered fish of some sort but the breading was just like what I found with the oysters. I love cole slaw - of most any description. But theirs was really not... More >>

    We ordered the Fish and Chips. The fried fish was overcooked and the fries were underwhelming. The music was too loud. The food was overpriced for the tired location.
