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.

Was it the watermelon martini prepared by Lynn our bartender? Or the shared passion of PEI mussels with Doris, one of the servers? Or the attention of Mark the manager? We felt like celebrities due to the service but the crabcakes and mussels and wine selection were incredible too. Thanks to our new Legal Sea Foods friends; we'll be back!!

Enjoyed a late lunch before hitting the Aquarium with two teenagers. Everyone was pleased with the choices: grilled salmon, crab cakes, fish and chips, flights of wine etc. We sat inside but it had a nice patio and the main dining room is on the 2nd floor so the views are nice.

We split clam chowder and the four person Treasure of the Reef between us. Neither of us are big eaters, but this was enough to fill both of us. While this certainly wasn't cheap, where else can you get a monstrous tower of seafood in the center of your table? I've been to Legal's all up and down the East... More

We had Oysters and LOVED them, then got our dinner and dinner for the kids to go. All the food was excellent. The only issue we had, which is half our fault for not checking, is that we had no dressing for the salad, ketchup for the fries, or butter for the corn. We didn't realize until we got back... More

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.
