foodWelcome to Scott Joseph's Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants.

The Foodsters are an ongoing program to recognize and celebrate culinary excellence in Central Florida. The Foodsters are open to any business with three or fewer locations -- no chains.

Winners are chosen by you, with your vote. Make your selection in each category carefully -- only one vote is allowed per person.

You may nominate a restaurant for an appropriate category, but make sure it isn't already in the list of nominees. And remember: independent restaurants only.

Here are your finalists for the 2019 Best Seafood Foodster Award for Independent Restaurants. You may choose just one favorite. Click the circle next to its name then click VOTE at the bottom of the list.

Note: No votes were carried over from the nominating phase. All finalists start with zero votes, so even if you voted for your favorite as a nominee, you must vote again in the finals.

After you’ve made your selection, leave a comment mentioning the name of the restaurant you voted for, telling us why you think it’s the best. We may use your comment when the winner is announced. (Be sure to say who you're commenting about because we can't see who you voted for.)

Voting will continue through Aug. 29.

Here are the finalists:
