Our waiter was fantastic. The food was pretty good. The front of the house looked clueless although we had reservations. and acted like they didn't want to be there. The food was average. It looked better than it taste...just my honest opinion. The ambiance and scenery is very nice.

We've only been to one in Boston, and it has been years. So, when we were going to be in Atlanta for July 4th, in the downtown area, we decided Legal Sea Foods would be a great option for our party of six. Everyone really enjoyed it! We got a table near the windows, and our server was very friendly... More

My husband and I were staying at the hotel and it was wonderful to just walk downstairs and eat a fantastic seafood meal! I had the raw oysters to start and had them with a new condiment of a garlic vinegar sauce. It was wonderful!! My husband had the clam chowder and it was the best we have ever had,... More

We were meeting a friend I hadn't seen for many years, so we decided to lunch in the downstairs bar area as it was quiet with nice ambiance. Wait staff was prompt, friendly and knowledgable. My wine was crisp and cold. Ordered a wrap and it was excellent, fries were fresh and hot. A different server brought out our food... More

Legal Sea Foods has always been a favorite stop while in Boston, and at their airport for fresh seafood and consistent meals. So, getting to eat here while in Atlanta was a treat I was looking forward to. The food did not disappoint however, the service did - it was non-existent. Hopefully they will get their waitstaff numbers up to... More

This was my first time @ Legal Seafood and I don't know why?? You can believe it won't be the last. No problem w/staff and this was during the AKA Boule w/over 20K attendees! I had the Louisiana Catfish Matrimony, catfish sautéed with shrimp and andouille sausage, mashed sweet potatoes and braised greens. Yummm. I highly recommend it and this... More

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.
