Description: 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.

A really delicious dinner with a great crew there. The crab cake sampler was wonderful and the spicy calamari was excellent. Cool vibe to this location and a great team working there. A really nice night after a very long and tedious day.

We had eaten here in Boston years ago and enjoyed it, but the place has lost something in the translation. It took forever to get lunch. No rolls were ever brought to the table, my daughter did not get her cole slaw with her fried fish, but by then we had waited so long, we lost interest in the whole... More

This was the second time I had eaten at Legal Sea Foods, the first time was in Boston. I had the seafood casserole and it was good, but not good enough to justify the $30 cost. It is over-rated.

We walked from our hotel and had a great meal with friendly and efficient service. We had an enjoyable drink at the bar before dinner - comfortable and relaxing. Our dinner was well prepared, fresh and delicious. The waiter was very efficient and just the right amount of friendly. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next day... More

We stopped by after a day at the aquarium and we were not disappointed. We sat downstairs in the bar area. We were dressed in jeans/shorts. Service was great and food was excellent. It was expensive but the portion sizes were generous.

My boyfriend and I went to the Georgia Aquarium and were looking up places to eat. We found reviews of LS online and they were descent and said the prices were not that high. We were wearing casual clothes (not too casual) since we came from the aquarium. The hostess was nice as we walked in the door but then... More

Just as good as the Boston location. Funny though, right across from the Atlanta Aquarium. Wonder if the fish is fresh! :)

We had trouble deciding where we would eat that night's dinner until we saw Legal Seafood while walking to the Georgia Aquarium. Decision made. I've been to Legal in many cities and the quality and experience is uniformly tops. Atlanta is no exception. The key is they fly in their stocks almost daily, resulting in extraordinary freshness. Yes, you pay... More

I visited this place for a corporate event. It was nice. The food was delicious. The key lime pie was absolutely amazing!!! I know its weird that I went to a seafood place and ended up with chicken. I am going to go back and try the seafood. Waiters were courteous and very responsive.

Legal is ALWAYS great if you want seafood. This is no exception. Connected on to the Hilton Garden Inn where we were staying made it even better. Went to dinner after the ChickFilA kickoff BAMA game and it was a fantastic dinner! Exceptional service. Beautiful scenery of downtown Atlanta at night. Just an AWESOME place to go if you want...
