The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. See fish. Eat fish. Legal Sea Foods is located in downtown Atlanta’s Hilton Garden Inn, across from the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola. Our two-story restaurant is double the fun for Atlantans who love seafood. Our validation will net you savings: complimentary self-parking or $5 off valet parking in the Hilton Garden Inn Garage. The buzz-worthy Oyster Bar is our street level lounge. Our second floor dining room features panoramic windows overlooking Centennial Olympic Park and Atlanta’s skyline, a balcony with outdoor seating and a wine room for semi-private parties. Nineteen signature cocktails, 28 wines by the glass and 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish will get you hooked. Legal Sea Foods has received a boatload of accolades including the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Lunch during convention. Wanted to try somewhere close enough to walk from convention but away from the food court type food. Got lucky and found this restaurant. Relaxing atmosphere. This restaurant serves an excellent crab cake. Excellent service from Herb, my waiter.

We visited a couple of weeks ago and the food was great, the service was great but the back end needs some managing. We ordered a bottle of wine and the glasses were dirty(very). Our waiter apologized and got more but when I went to wipe my mouth with my napkin, it smelled like an old dish cloth that had... More

The ambiance and service here is great. We went for an early dinner with friends and the server was very attentive without being pushy. Nice menu, drinks are good and the Crabcakes are the best!

I loved the look of the place but was expecting more from the food. It was average... nothing different or distinctive to make it stand out as a food memory.

Had dinner there Friday the 13th a day early for Valentines. Service was excellent, food was cooked perfect. I had scallops nice sear on the outside and not over cooked on the inside. My husband had fish which again was perfectly cooked. They have the best bananas foster! Yum! Will be back again next year.

I was very surprised at the quality of food with this resturant being right in the hotel. It is pricey but worth it! Located in the Hilton Garden Inn on Baker St.

We were sightseeing in Atlanta and decided to go to Legal Seafood for lunch. Located on the 2nd floor of the Hilton Garden Inn allowed a nice view of Atlanta. I used to be a regular customer when I lived in the Boston area. The service, fresh seafood, and the preparation was as good as I remembered and I feel... More

We picked Legal Seafoods based on others' reviews. We live in Kansas and don't get really good seafood unless we're traveling. The food here was fantastic, but it is not cheap. We had all 3 kids with us, and as we wanted to take advantage of good seafood, we ordered appetizers as well as main dishes. The bill was a... More
