Lure Seafood & Grille Restaurant

Lure Seafood & Grille Restaurant owner George Skiadas described it perfectly, "We want to create a restaurant that people will find as a destination. We want them to come from Central City, Evansville..." The Restaurant features a full service bar, and everything else from catfish fiddlers to jumbo shrimp cocktail. The Restaurant space features accordion glass windows so that we can in fact make the entire restaurant an open air restaurant overlooking the Ohio River. Lure Seafood & Grille is locally owned and operated seafood grille with sushi bar offering brunch on the weekends and live music every night.
