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.

Why awful? We waited 10 minutes for the menus and then 15 for anyone to take out order on a Monday night (not many people at the restaurant). The clam chowder is very good, the wedge salad was excellent (different) and the crab cake were ok. Main dishes were jus average.

We had a family lunch together at Legal Sea Food before touring the Georgia Aquarium. The ambiance is elegant, the second floor position gives nice views of the Olympic Park area activities, and the seafood dishes are fresh and flavorful. The wait service was attentive and knowledgeable. I really enjoy crab cakes, and Legal has some of the best crab... More

This was my first visit to Legal Sea Foods. The server (Anastasia) was knowledgeable about the menu and did an outstanding job of serving me. The food was very good and the portions realistic - not huge like some places. I had the crab cake combo with shrimp and scallops after starting the meal with a must have cup of... More

We came for lunch today and had very nice service! Josh is pleasant and knowledgeable. We both had stuffed lobster. I loved mine. My husband wasn't quite as happy with his, but he's not really a lobster person anyway, so while I love him, I will also say I loved my lobster. I had it stuffed, which was very good... More

Legal seafood was very good. I got the ahi tuna appetizer not a lot for $15 but it was very good. I got the crabcake combo with shrimp and scallops and it was very good. They do not sell the pecan torte anymore and it's on the menu so I was disappointed but I did get Keylime pie and it... More

The restaurant was extremely crowded (Mothers Day), and even though we had made reservations, we had a 30 minute wait for our table. The food was very good, and the service was prompt and courteous.
