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.

We had such a great time for dinner. We were a party of eight and our server stayed on top of things. Food was wonderful. A few of us were able to split our dishes and still had plenty to eat. The restaurant is very nice. Two wonderful long bars to seat and eat at. We ate at a table... More

My husband and I decided to eat at the bar instead of going upstairs to the main restaurant. The atmosphere was great. We enjoyed the fried oysters and fried seafood platter. Only disappointment was no horse radish for steamed oysters.

I had first eaten at a Legal Sea Foods restaurant in Boston and was delighted to find one near the Omni Hotel where I stayed for a conference. I indulged in a whole lobster, which was delicious. Since I dined solo, I chose to eat downstairs in the bar area and not wait or take out a whole table during... More

Recently ate with friends before going to the GA Aquarium. The service was simply a notch above most places I have eaten recently. The food was served quickly, as prepared and was very tasty. I highly recommend the clam chowder as a started. All of their seafood including the shrimp and grits was simply outstanding. Pricing is a bit above... More

Once in a blue moon we venture out on Thanksgiving when family gatherings are pre-empted. This year we dined at Legal Seafood for a different feast - stuffed lobster instead of stuffed turkey! Excellent food, good atmosphere for a holiday (mixture of locals and travelers), and adequate service.

Beautiful view of Atlanta form this restaurant. A little bit noisy but still managed to have a conversation. Wanted Lobster tail but all they offer is a whole lobster, which gave me an adverse effect to an eye condition(I know I could have NOT eaten all of it). It was hard to get our wait staffs attention to inform her... More

Great location, keep in mind that the average amount that you will spend is about 50 per person for a good selection of fresh seafood, it is worth every dollar. The service could be a bit more attentive regarding the pace of the meal. But overall is a good place to take the love one or family.
