Shrimp is the most popular of the seafood proteins in America and especially here in the Gulf States. It's considered a healthy meat low in calories and high in omega-3, calcium, iodine, and protein levels. Shrimp is also known to be good for the circulatory system.

I set out on a mission to find the best seafood restaurants in our town. Some people like using Yelp, but I'm a Trip Advisor guy myself.

Trip Advisor's Top Ten Best Seafood Restaurants in Lake Charles:

You may be asking yourself why some restaurants rank higher than others on the list but have a lower ranking. Trip Advisor will rank a restaurant that has a ton of reviews higher over another restaurant that has a few reviews even though the scores should suggest otherwise. I think this is very fair because anyone can get their family and friends to give their restaurant a five-circle review even if the food doesn't deserve it. That's not a dig on any restaurant on this list; I'm just explaining why having more reviews carries more weight in Trip Advisor's rankings.

So let's go out support these local restaurants and chow down on America's favorite seafood.
