Splash Seafood Oyster
Bar & Grill

Des Moines’ premiere
Seafood Restaurant

The idea for Splash was given birth on the water in 1998 by an avid Key’s fisherman, Bruce Gerleman. His fishing expeditions took him all over the Florida Keys where he discovered exotic meals cooked by the ‘locals’.

Our story


Our philosophy is 'Fresh
Fish & Fun!'

Our award winning wine list is perfectly paired to compliment our extensive seafood selections. Our jet fresh seafood is flown in daily from coast to coast, including seaports in Boston, Seattle, Key Largo, and Honolulu.
