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.

Reviewed November 11, 2013

A party of 5, we arrived early for a 6:30 Saturday night reservation and were seated immediately. The calamari appetizer supported their statement that the eafod is fresh - it may have been the best I ever had. The menu offers a wide selection. I had a special - Flounder / Crawfish Matrimony; large portion, tasty no complaints. The others all reported satisfaction with theirs. Server was courteous and competent the desserts lived up to the quality of the rest of our dinner.Our table allowed a good Atlanta view: The Westin, the large ferris wheel. I parked at the Hilton Garden Inn garage for $5 with the discount from the restaurant.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

We went Labor Day weekend, after the Alabama/Virginia Tech game. It was late, we were starving, and could not have asked for a better experience. There were plenty of TVs in the bar so we could watch the other games of the day while we waited. Our wait was not nearly as long as anticipated. When we sat down, Chelsea W, our server was in great spirits. I cannot imagine how long her day was but she was friendly and fun. Chelsea is an asset. She knew the menu and offered excellent suggestions. I had the spicy fish n chips. I thought the batter would have Cajun seasoning but there was actually a spicy "sauce" between the fish and the batter. It was amazing! There were so many pieces of fish, I shared and still brought two pieces home.

The manager came by our table at least twice. Chelsea never let us get low on drinks or need for anything. The place was packed but you would have thought we were the only ones there. The food was great but the service made the night!

“nice mixed grill of the day”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

This reastaurant is near the centennial park. The athmosphere is typical american, a warm ambience and efficient service.
I had a mixed grill including the best catches of the day with french-fried and onion rings, all watered with a good local red beer.

“Always a good experience, consistent food”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Great lunch spot in ATL. There was a convention and it was close to convention center. Food was wonderful. Had the lobster roll, so worth it, along with seasonal veggies. The service was good as well. They had a great little patio to enjoy lunch. Also close to GA Aquarium & World of Coca-Cola, so walking distance to most things. A little pricey but the food is really good and fresh too.

Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Quality seafood and really good service on a recent visit for lunch. Set amongst the downtown "things to do", GA Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Centinnial Park - this is a great place to relax and enjoy a meal. Excellent bar and wine list too.
