Wonderful Florida-Style Fish, Fresh Oysters, Local Draft Beer, Appropriate Atmosphere

I heard about Square One having “Florida-style” fish and since I'm from the South, I thought I'd see if the advertising was accurate. I arrived before the crowds, around 5:30 (by the time I left the place was almost packed), and chose to sit in a booth vs. at the bar even though I was dining alone... read more

I was looking for a place for brunch and chose Square One because their brunch menu was not so "brunchy" Started with dozen raw oysters. They were described well while we ordered and were good size and flavor. We also had the oyster po boy and salmon blt (the special). Salmon was very good. Bacon was nice thick cut. Fries... More

We were attending a dance competition for my granddaughter at Classic Center. There were 10 very hungry people looking for a place that could seat us late on a very busy night. One of our party walked by Square One and thought it looked interesting. It was a wonderful choice. We were seated outside on a very pleasant evening and... More

I enjoyed this place very much: the sea bass Cubano looked like it was leaping off the plate and tasted superb. Good, solid dessert too, even for a Brit.

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 on top. When my wife... 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
