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.

Just Like In Boston!

Ate here with my wife to escape the convention dinner circuit. Typical Legal Seafood menu. Excellent, friendly service. Good seafood - just like in Boston. Located in the Hilton Garden Inn near the convention center.

I have to be honest in that I was not overly impressed with my order, which was crablegs, mashed potatoes and broccoli. When ordering King crab legs I am used to them coming out pre-cracked these did not. I mentioned it to the server and she graciously offered to do it for me at the table. I declined. The mashed...

Went here for my wife birthday. Great food and service. Had the crab cake (delicious) and the trio calamari, again delicious for starters. The grilled red snapper was cooked to perfection as was the grilled seafood platter (swordfish, tuna, shrimps & scallops). Add on drinks (excellent) and desserts (key lime pie & boston creme) a perfect evening dinner for any... More

Fantastic location on pretty and busy (in summer) Long Wharf, but food is not that great. A shame for a great location. We had the lobster bisque, pasta with shrimp, rice and shrimp with raita and naan, and the crab roll. The first two were the best of the orders, and the bisque was creamy. Service was just ok.

I will say their prices are steep BUT the food is well prepared, the waitstaff super efficient and friendly. We enjoyed a nice booth with views of the city. The food was excellent.

Wife and I ate here after visiting the Aquarium next door. I had heard about Legal Seafood when I was traveling to the new England area but never had the chance to try them. So jumped at the chance and was not disappointed. I had the Maryland crab soup and it was great with a big lump of crab in... More

I just recently visited this restaurant and the service wasn't up to standard. My first experience was great but I don't know what happened. 3 plates were sent back to the kitchen b/c food was cold and some of the side orders we're wrong. The cook came to the table he had a very blunt attitude. For this restaurant to... More
