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.

Best crab cakes I've had!! I was dining alone so I went upstairs and ate at the bar. Food was definitely worth 5 dtsrs, but unfortunately, the service was not the best. The bartender immediately served me my drink and made menu suggestions. My food was delivered promptly and tasted amazing. My server did not return to check on me... More

I brought two out-of-town guests back to Legal Sea Foods which my husband and I found after spending an afternoon at the aquarium last year. It is so delicious, uncrowded (at 7:00 PM on a Friday), lovely city views with floor-to-ceiling windows, and, as long as you don't mind paying for it, the best seafood in the city. Their least...

Located in the hotel - easy access. I was starving and tired - they wrapped the food up and I went to my room quite quickly. I ate there just about everyday that I was there.

This place is right across from the largest aquarium in the world, so of course we headed over after we had our fill of giant sea creatures! The service was awesome. The menu has an incredible number of gluten free items. I opted for gluten free buffalo shrimp, which were AMAZING. Also, stuffed lobster with gluten free crackers. It was... More

We visited there while taking a weekend trip. We made reservations but still had to wait an additional 15minutes (it was Saturday). They were nice and apologetic. We had the buffalo shrimp as an app which was really good. Different presentation but it went well. The cream of crab was EXCELLENT. My son had the Clam Chowder. He said it... More

Went with a small group of colleagues after a day at a tradeshow at the World Congress Center. Good appetizers, try the bang bang , different and delicious. Good service, attentive but not overbearing. All of us enjoyed our meals and crab cakes were very good.

As with most chains you kinda know how it's going to be but what made this special was how fast we were waited on and the friendliness of the waiter. The crab soup really hit the spot, the bar had some amazing choices for specialty drinks and the dessert that night was homemade rice pudding.
