Catch of the Day Reels in Happy Hour Crowds
|Location isn't everything.|
1050 NW 42nd Ave., Miami
The Hours: daily, 3-7 p.m.
The Deals: Ninety cent draft beers, $2.99 for well drinks and wine by the glass and half off Mojitos and select cocktails.
The Scene: Admittedly, when you're looking for some fresh seafood and a cool coastal breeze as part of your happy hour your first thought might not lead you to the landlocked locale at LeJeune Road and NW 10th Street ( a couple blocks south of the airport and across the street from the Miami Princess Motel). But it should. Catch of the Day has been an institution a stone's throw away from the Dolphin Expressway for what seems like decades.
Outdoor seating is plentiful for happy hour.
Conclusion: The inside of Catch of the Day is a little cramped but the outdoor area, which features live music on most nights, has ample additional seating for happy hour crowds. The decorations, including a ship-wrecked boat on its side just off LeJeune Road, are campy but the vibe is legit and the food is tasty.
