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.

Delicious, yet overpriced

The food was very good, but our waitress was inattentive. It was pretty empty in the restaurant, yet it took us over an hour to eat because she took so long getting us our check. It's very, very pricey for the portion size.

Had the clam chowder, the oysters for dinner and the fish tacos for lunch. Loved everything. The restaurant is well located close to the aquarium and coca cola world.

Dining at Legal Sea Foods was one of the most enjoyable meals I’ve had in a very long time. The service was second to none. The quality, flavor and portions of the food as near perfect as anyone could expect.

Our server was excellent. The quality and quantity of the food was good. The restaurant is a bit tired. Almost every table edge and most walls are scratched. Tables are way too close together. The hostess had an attitude about our not having a reservation. We stayed in the hotel and walked through the connecting door. Less than half the... More

We enjoyed some shrimp cocktail and drinks at the bar before heading over to the Georgia Dome for a game. Service was great, beer and wine selection was good. Shrimp cocktail was good, except they didn't get all of the shell off of one shrimp. Other than that, it was a nice visit.

This second-floor restaurant is located across the street from the Georgia Aquarium; it is proximate to Centennial Park and a lot of downtown venues. We went for lunch on a Saturday during Restaurant Week, so the place was slammed. Even so, we were seated timely and our server, Delta, did a great job of taking care of us. The food... More

The seafood was fresh and the service was good. Even though they prefer reservations, you don't have to have one. Don't forget to try the Clam Chowder.

This meal was fantastic! Incredibly busy so make a reservation. Wonderful menu selection, excellent wait staff and the food was great. Busy but still had great service and food was well prepared. We had apps, main course and desserts. App was tasty, main courses were flavourful and large. They had no sweet potato ready when we got there - it... More
