Wife & I shared dinner Saturday night, sat outside. Seating was the best part of our experience. I would return here for drinks outside, but not for a meal. Although we made clear not to put onions or scallions as a garnish on our calamari, it was served with a large amount of scallions poured... read more

I've had mixed experiences at Square One; some meals are really good and I am happy to have gone. Some meals are train wrecks where I am not even sure what kind of fish I am supposed to be eating (but am pretty certain it is not what they think it is). Atmosphere is fine and the service is often... More

Food and service are good. Nice wine selection. If you are looking for seafood away from the coast, this is a good place to start. Will definitely eat here again.

Good menu, great food. Nice wine pairings. If you're a shellfish lover, the Conch Fritter is excellent for an appetizer and is enough for 2! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

One of our go to restaurants in Athens. Our last visit my wife had the andouille crusted cod which was excellent. I had the sesame crusted tuna with wasabi, outstanding. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The owner and the chef stopped by our table to check on us. The owners formally owned a seafood restaurant on the Fla.... More

It had been a couple of years since visiting Square One Fish Co...not because we did not enjoy our previous visits, but because we don't take advantage of the downtown scene all that much. On this particular Friday night we were attending a show at the Classic Center, which is practically next door to the restaurant. We had made reservations,... More

Went for a business dinner last week and the place was great. Not as lively as the holiday's - but still had a great crowd. Food was excellent and matched by the service.

Been here several times now and have been very happy every time. This is a long way from the cheapest venue in Athens but the quality is excellent. Fish is always fresh, well cooked and beautifully presented. Service always very strong and a nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Had a great meal at the Square 1 Fish Co. in Athens. Conch fritters were excellent as was my Fried Snapper entree - perfectly cooked and served with flavorful sides. Would rate this restaurant excellent, but other diners in our group had less to rave about. All in all a good value.
