A very trendy place conveniently located close to Centennial Olympic Park. My wife and I had the Shrimp and Grits. The shrimp was wrapped on bacon and the collar greens were the best I've eaten. I very cozy place. Will be back when I'm in the neighborhood!

Easy walk from Embassy Suites at Centennial. Can always count on fresh fish and seafood. Service good. Reliable choice for dinner and drinks after long day at Gift Mart.

Seafood was quite good. My oysters had a good flavor and were well seasoned. Coleslaw was excellent. Food arrived hot as it should be. The customer service personnel seemed to be nice and welcoming. Very nice wine list. However, I do think the service was a little on the slow side and the restaurant was not full when we arrived.... More

We wandered in for lunch after visiting College Football Hall of Fame. We ate in the bar area so we could see the bowl games on the t.v.'s. We ordered a variety of lunch items as well as items from the kids menu and everyone was genuinely pleased. Crab cakes were raved about. Very friendly server and pleasant atmosphere.

Went to Legal with my wife and enjoyed the décor and the food. The sides and appetizers were better than the entrées. We started with a delicious crab cake which was very meaty with little filler. The wedge salad with blue cheese and bacon was better than I have had anywhere! As for the entrees, the wood grilled shrimp and... More

We had a great meal here. There was a 45 minute wait so we chose to sit at the bar and eat! We had the best meal and a great experience. Our food was awesome and the service was awesome. We loved chatting with the bartender and getting some good tips around Atlanta. Will definitely recommend.

Legal seafood is delicious and the service is outstanding.... of course you must remember to get the chowder that has been famously served at presidential inaugural dinners! Of course if is a little fancy and pricy so best for dates, business meetings, and special occasions.

This was a fantastic place to eat. The CREAM OF CRAB SOUP is hands-down some of the best we have eaten. I would highly recommend that if you are a crab food lover!!! The folks serving us were very helpful, knowledgable, friendly. Another must eat/and/dine when in Atlanta!!
