Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. See fish. Eat fish.

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.

Seems we had the opposite experience of some of the other recent reviews. Our wait staff was very attentive, but the food was under seasoned.

I had never been to this location, but a vendor offered this as a great lunch location. The scene looking at the GA Aquarium and Centennial Park was awesome. Everyone did the extra little things to make the lunch easy and enjoyable.

A bit overpriced and we had to wait awhile and it wasn't even crowded for a late lunch. Food was good but not best ever. I've had better service at red lobster, but at least restrooms were clean

We had a very nice late lunch after our Museum visit. The food was wonderful especially the crab cakes and clam chowder soup. Our server was outstanding and made excellent suggestions. The atmosphere was relaxing after a full day of touring. We will without hesitation eat here again which will make our 10year old granddaughter happy since she was with... More

Had the pleasure of dining at Legal Seafoods in Atlanta while on a business trip. The food was great. If you like grilled seafood get the wood grilled special. Fantastic. Also try the seafood salad. It is the best. I will be back.

This was a very pleasant dining experience. Good atmosphere, view and excellent service. The service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive. The food was excellent. I will definitely return the next time I travel to Atlanta.

Never eaten here before but my wife said the food is excellent so we went for dinner. Service was horrible, we waited 10 minutes just for our server to show up. We gave him our order and then waited another 10 minutes just to get water. Food eventually came to the table. Kids and wife said their food was good,... More

We ate here after our long journey to the aquarium. There are 2 floors to the restaurant. The first floor is for walk-in traffic and the 2nd is for reservations. I definitely recommend going to the second floor for the view. We walked in and were seated relatively quick. The menu kind of disappointed me. I expected to see a... More

It starts, as it always does, with the excellent front desk staff...who proceeded to seat my business partner and me at an excellent window-side table with an excellent view. Our server - with the lovely name of Delta - was spot-on with the perfect balance of professionalism and personality. Our meal, dead tired though my partner and I were, was... More

We walked in, no reservations - not a chance, right? Wrong, we got to sit at a bar area (not with a bartender, where they shuck oysters) and watched TV. Our food was TOP NOTCH! I have a child with an allergy and there were more than accommodating, worth their weight in gold to a parent of a child with... More
