The wait staff was friendly and helpful. The food was just average. I ordered the same casserole here I ordered last month in Boston. The portions here were smaller. It was not hot all the way through. Kinda of a disappointment as I have tried Legal Seafood in Boston and D.C.

I ordered Shrimp Gumbo bowl 8.95 spicy andouille sausage, crispy fried okra, jasmine rice. Fish & Chips regular or spicy 16.95 and a Coke. The rice in the gumbo was as hard as rocks. Obviously old and exceeded its holding time. The shrimp was plentiful but under-cooked. The andouille sausage was scarce. I did not finish it. The fish &... More

Our waitress, Rebecca, was attentive, charming and efficient. She did not hesitate to research wines for us and gave us wonderful suggestions for dinner choices. The crab cakes were amazing, as were the sautéed mussels. Very casual but comfortable and obviously a popular place. Even though it became busier as the evening went on, we had just the right amount... More

Legal Sea Foods is one of the best seafood restaurants period. The seafood is fresh, high quality and prepared perfectly. Perfect martini; great oysters (ice cold with tangy horseradish and Tabasco; perfectly prepared clams which were so fresh you did not need to add salt and nice salad. The restaurant is in the Hilton Garden Inn near Centennial Park -... More

Hit this place for dinner when we stayed in Midtown last weekend. Had the Crab cake as a starter and order the Chef's choice while my lady got the Seafood Casserole. All we're fantastic and we finished with a Boston Cream Pie. Would not hesitate to return.

Once again Legal did not disappoint in service and quality in serving a great gluten free meal. The portions however are quite smaller than their other Legal Seafood restaurants up north. I only wish Legal comes to North Carolina.

Right in the middle of everything. Located near the Georgia Dome, College Football Hall of Fame, Centennial Park, CNN, on Baker Street. Legal Sea Food location is one reflection of Atlanta. Fresh and delicious. We enjoyed everything. From the clam filled Chower, to the huge portion of rainbow trout. I tried the Grilled assortment of fish. It came with 2oz... More

Highly recommend! We had a great family lunch here when we were visiting Atlanta. Great location by the Aquarium, Coca Cola Factory, Olympic Park. We had a great view of the city from our table. Fish tacos were excellent!

We just started off wrong. I made reservations and was looking forward to an enjoyable meal. Our host took us to a table for two which was jammed between a pole and the window. I felt it was a very uncomfortable location and asked to be moved. The host looked around, and gave me the "they were full, where are... More

Kind, attentive, unobtrusive, friendly and quick service. Creative mains and sides prepared with quality ingredients. The corn maque choux served with the blackened Mahi Mahi would have made an excellent meal in itself.

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.
