How'd We Get Here?
The Original Melbourne Seafood Station
Nothing says ‘Florida' quite like that sea-salty taste of the ocean. In our case, the undeniable proof can be found in our signature Florida seafood boil. Not many understand this notion better than Nick Moon, who has more than 24 years experience in sourcing and selling seafood to local markets & restaurants; a trade passed down from his father who spent his life doing the same. Together, the two operated Moon’s Amazing Seafood in Melbourne, Florida for years, where Nick really got to know the locals. The true seafood lovers, the fishermen, the tourists, the artists, the locals that make Brevard County what it is. His relationship with the Salvation Army can attest to his core belief in the value of this community. Fast forward to 2016, Nick and his wife, Naomi, opened their own seafood market in Melbourne and the Melbourne Seafood Station was born.
Their humble beginning started in an old gas station, repurposed for the concept, in Historic Downtown Melbourne. Conveniently located just off the intracoastal and easily accessible to passersby, the parking lot rarely sits empty to this day. You can forget suppliers and frozen products, Nick’s experience and long-standing relationships with charter captains and fishermen allowed him to provide his customers with fresh seafood right off the boat. Additionally, the Moon’s offered and subsequently underestimated the power of the seafood boil, which soon became a staple and the star of the show. It’s an uncomplicated approach and beyond delicious idea paired with responsibly-sourced seafood and expertise;
it’s a catch.

Together, Nick & Naomi took their unique recipe, an exclusive medley of spices and their signature garlic sauce, and ventured into the restaurant industry. This allowed them the opportunity to offer high-quality seafood in a fast-casual environment. No crazy lines and no long waits for a table. Just a laid back, ‘get-your-hands-dirty’ adventure and enjoy the one thing that brings people together; really good food. And it’s the ethos of this experience that is carried through the brand and all of our locations today.
When the ocean is calling, coast in to the Melbourne Seafood Station.
