A word from Tin Can Fish House
Tin Can is the latest creation by brother and sister team, Arte Antoniades and Nik Panagopoulos. The sibling pair is best known for the original Fishmonger Restaurant and Teela Taqueria (named by the Atlanta Journal Constitution as one of Top 10 Best Taquerias in Atlanta). Located adjacent to its sister restaurant Teela Taqueria in City Walk at Sandy Springs, Tin Can's eclectic menu of seaside dishes and seashore café décor transforms the City Walk into the Boardwalk as guests dine on Soft Shell Crab Sliders, Shrimp and Oyster Po' Boys, and Blackened Mahi Mahi fish while enjoying a laid back atmosphere for singles and families alike.Continued

- Good oysters!JHVOpinionDined on 8/15/2014I took my aunt here because she wanted to celebrate her birthday at a casual place, and enjoy some oysters. This was out first visit. We sat at the bar first and had a nice, cold beer. They have a pretty nice beer selection - decent local craft brews as well as some others. We then sat outside and enjoyed a couple dozen fresh oysters and crab balls. The food was fresh, good, and just right for the atmosphere. We had good service. I will be back!Special Features:
- OystersDianneVIPDined on 7/25/2014We come here to eat oysters and the grouper. They are both great.Special Features:
- food is outstandingoodooDined on 7/24/2014Went here for a second time. The first was great and I wanted to see if they could repeat. Tin Can didn't disappoint. It was amazing. If you like fish and you like beer, Tin Can is the place for you.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- options for picky eatersamber2251Dined on 7/13/2014I appreciate that there are non seafood options on the menu so that our picky 12 year old can find something to eat while the adults enjoy oysters and ceviche.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- likes2eatVIPDined on 7/10/2014I had the salmon for the first time and it was delicious. A friend had the paella and it was great. This is a very casual restaurant but the food is very good and reasonable with generous portions. Any fish is very fresh and well preparedSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PriceyDianneVIPDined on 7/6/2014We have been coming for about a year and enjoyed the meal. However they have raised their prices that is just not acceptable. The oysters were smaller and the prices higher. Thsy cant do both. I don't think we will be back.Special Features:
- Good Casual DiningOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/5/2014If you are looking for a place to relax and get an average meal at a good price, this is it. I would return but it is nothing "over the top"Special Features:
- Solid!oodooDined on 7/1/2014Great fish at an amazing price. Fried okra is also some of the best I've had herr in ATL or anywhere else. Fish is amazing. Grouper & salmon are excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good neighborhood "dive"OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 6/15/2014No frills low key neighborhood bar and restaurant. This place feels like a beach bar. The food is basic but good, will go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Meetingg friendsDianneVIPDined on 5/30/2014This resturant has become a regular. We love the oysters. I dont know where in Atlanta that you can get oysters as big . The seafood soup is full of seafood. The grouper if the best.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quality has really dropped.KDMacherDined on 5/25/2014A few years back Tin Can was a pretty good choice for seafood in Sandy Springs area. Over the last year or so, however, it has gone downhill in my opinion. Food was not good at all, and most seemed like it had been reheated in microwave. Would not recommendSpecial Features:
- The following 76 reviews are from the Tin Can Fish House reviews archive.
- Not openOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/20/2014Opentable said it was open. I made reservations online for Easter lunch. When we got there, it had a sign on the door saying it was closed.
- Missing the OldSPJEATSVIPDined on 4/19/2014I became a regular at Tin Can over a year ago and had become familiar with the bartender and wait service. The food is still good and the service is too, but the familiarity is slightly gone. The weather didn't permit us sitting outside but that is one of the best areas to eat. I love having the sun set on my back in the evenings and watch the sky change into dusk. I have friends come from all over and when they do (if they enjoy seafood) treat them to a meal. It will always be a favorite neighborhood find. - SJSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Average to poor. Not going back.BobKVIPDined on 4/6/2014We were jammed into a tight corner and experienced pretty slow service when the whole place was virtually empty during a normal lunch time (should have taken this as a clue). Best thing was the kids menu (fried everything), but oysters were warm, tilapia and grouper tasted and looked the same, ceviche had more salsa than fish, hush puppies were hard as rocks and, overall, the average food was very expensive for what we got (and why would I pay $1.50 for mignonette sauce on oysters - seriously?). This place feels like a bad franchise even though it's a standalone restaurant. Nice try, but not going back.
- YumChefzVIPDined on 3/29/2014Fresh seafood, reasonably priced! Friendly waitstaff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dining in the SunSPJEATSVIPDined on 3/22/2014This is one of my favorite spots to dine especially when it's 75 plus degree whether in the ATL. The patio provides a comfortable setting for an afternoon lunch and the sun setting on my back feels quite good in the evenings. While it appears that there are new waiters and waitresses and it seems that LaLa is no longer at the bar, the friendly atmosphere and great service is still in abundance.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Cute Restaurant w/ a Relaxed Feel..OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/11/2014This was a cute little restaurant with a very relaxed feel. I would have given it a higher score but the food just wasn't seasoned and as flavorful as I would have liked it to be. The wait staff and bartenders were very nice. The time I went it was very slow and not many people were dining but I can imagine it probably gets quite slammed when the restaurant is full. I also would have liked it more if there were happy hour specials.
- Probably not a repeat for meOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 3/7/2014When you have to ask for condiments, that really tells you all you want to know. On the bright side, the fried oysters were delicious. The fried cod on the fish 'n chips was lightly breaded, properly seasoned, crisp and moist, however frozen French fries? Really. On the low side the clam chowder was cold and they left it on the bill! The service was poor. Considering that there was a very small crowd, the servers seemed more intent on watching the fry cooks and each other than their tables. With everything a la carte, the bill was embarrassing for the experience.
- Last Miniute ValentinesGotOyestersDined on 2/14/2014Due to the snow, last minute plans had everything was booked. The wife and I tried this spot as an alternative to Joey D's. Not in the same league. May be a good spot for lunch though.Special Features:
- Never DisappointedFdCrtxDined on 2/14/2014Each time I have dined at this establishment I have always been satisfied. The food is always on point. Friendly staff and laid back atmosphere.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Meal and Great ValueSeafoodLoverDined on 2/14/2014Tried Tin Can Fish House for the first time on Friday night. My date and I both had grouper (hers was grilled and mine was fried) with cheese grits. When I saw that the entrees were only $16.00, I was thinking the portions would be small or the fish wouldn't taste fresh. I couldn't have been more wrong! The meal was every bit as good as many I've had on the gulf coast. They also had this really good fried shrimp appetizer with a spicy/mayo-based sauce. The shrimp were very tender. We had our meals with the appetizer (no drinks) and were in and out in an hour for only $50. Did not have the menu choices you will have at Atlanta Fish Market, but it was a nice new experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent fresh fish, great valueZimrobDined on 1/25/2014Food was very well prepared and was served quickly. Service was great. Cost was reasonable. Music was perfect and volume too. Had a really enjoyable Fun evening with 2 couples chatting.. Highly recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointedOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 12/31/2013Where do I start? We were sat at a table even though we requested a booth. We were told all the booths were reserved. No one ever sat there while we were there. The restaurant was so cold that I had to put my jacket over my legs and it was so dark - you could not even read the menu or the check. It was so noisy that we could not have a conversation. My appetizer (crab balls) was great! My husband enjoyed his oysters and soft shell crab. My paella was AWFUL! The wine list was limited and they had no beer on draft. The staff is not knowledgable. My husband asked what kind of oysters they had (e.g. gulf, blue point, etc.). The waitress said all she knew was that they were raw. Enough said. Don't waste your time.Special Features:
- So SoUGA88Dined on 12/31/2013Decent but just o.k. Fish seemed under cooked (wet). Po Boy had an odd taste and the grouper's outside came out too dark but the inside was wet. Apparently the frier is set too high and over browns the exterior and leaves the inside under-done.
- NYE DinnerKCR52Dined on 12/31/2013My husband, small child, & I have been to Tin Can several times. We love it because the food & service are usually very good & it's kid friendly. We invited several friends to join us there for an early dinner on NYE. The food was good, but service was rather slow considering it wasn't very crowded. I'm sure it may have just been that our server was a little overwhelmed with it being a holiday. We will, however, definitely be back & are even considering making it a NYE tradition.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good foodAtlanta01VIPDined on 12/7/2013This place is cute, the food is good, but time and time again, we have terrible service. If this place would correct the problems with the servers, they might have a chance of making it. I hope they do, as we like dining there, but sadly, the poor service overshadows the meal experience.Special Features:
- Birthday DinnerApolloBeachRetireeDined on 12/7/2013We went to the Tin Can Fish House to celebrate my daughter's boyfriend's and my birthday. We enjoyed the food and the location. Our grandson and two other your boys were with us and the restaurant staff accommodated them nicely.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Middle of the road seafoodOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/30/2013It's hard to find decent, reasonably priced seafood so we were hopeful that TIn Can Fish House might be that place... wrong. Lots of overly fried food with little taste. Think upscale Long John Silvers. Service was fine, atmosphere was dark. Won't be back any time soon.Special Features:
- reasonably priced, superb serviceDAVEZDined on 11/29/2013They have a good selection of sea food at good value. for eight eaters. They even satisfied my vegan spouse, they fed the little ones easily, they even surprised me with very good food, soup, and very excellent service, a casual no stress meal! Reasonably priced with a good assorted menu. I had the fried oyster/calamari/crab ball platter. My spouse had the mixed vegetables and a spinach salad. The kids had nice chicken baskets, The rest of the family had trout and 4 orders of fresh raw oysters and wine...the check came to about $240 plus tips. after eating and drinking for 2 hours and a half. (in the Kroger shopping center parking lot) it'll become our local place to fall back on when you NEED raw and fried oysters plus sea food!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- So-SoMikeZVIPDined on 7/13/2013I keep searching for good but inexpensive seafood in Atlanta and am going to keep searching. I had the grouper (horseradish-crusted). It was a nice peice of fish in terms of portion size and quality but the horseradish crust was fairly bland i.e. no kick and might as well have been just breadcrumbs. My kids had salmon and shrimp and they both said it was ok but not tasty. So I'd put it in the same category as Red Lobster and nowhere near what I'd call good seafood places like Atlantic Seafood or Atlanta Fish Market.
- Good Louisiana-style seafoodOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 7/6/2013My wife and I went to the Tin Can Fish House on a recent Saturday and came away impressed. While we booked on OpenTable, there really was no need because there were a number of empty tables, probably because of the bad weather. The decor looks like a place by the beach and it is a bit noisy, probably from the sound reflecting off all the tin. The margaritas were good and priced right at $5. We had the bam-bam shrimp as an appetizer, which was nothing really special - breaded shrimp with a spicy sort of mayo. I can heartily recommend the paella, although the spicy andouille sausage could be a bit much for some palates. She had the grouper, which was tender and moist and her vegetables were crisp and fresh.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food terrible, oysters mediocreJLWatlVIPDined on 7/5/2013Unfortunately this place just stinks all the way around. The oysters arent freshly shucked, which equates to dry, tasteless oysters. The portions are tiny. My husbands entree was the same size as my daughter's who ordered the kids meal! Mussels were overcooked and tasteless, cocktail sauce tasted like chili sauce. Beer was not cold.Special Features:
- More pystersDianneVIPDined on 6/30/2013Sunday night we went eight of us and enjoyed our meals. We had oysters and shrimp and fish everything was good.. We have been coming on a weekly basis.Special Features:

- This place is awesome forOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 6/15/2013This place is awesome for the price. Staff was very sincere and service is excellent. Will visit again when i am in Atlanta.Special Features:
- excellent dinner experienceIanPDined on 6/8/2013We decided to try for dinner based on mostly solid reviews on Open Table. We were thrilled with the results. Our server was extremely friendly, attentive and helpful, including making some great food recommendations. The crusted grouper ended up being picked by a few in our group, and everyone loved it. The room has a comfortable feel -- "rustic" has been aptly used in prior reviews -- which was perfect for what we wanted. The noise level became a little high at times, particulary for the older grandparents in our group, but overall was just right. Everyone had an excellent time. We'll definitely come back!Special Features:
- OystersDianneVIPDined on 6/7/2013This is our fourth time here. They have the best oysters in town they are so good and big.when we go we have two dozen each . Last night we also shared the horseradish grouper,also really good. We like to sit outside because it tends to get noisier inside.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lively and a lot of fun!ZWagDined on 6/1/2013Saturday night and probably could have dropped in without a reservation without too long a wait. Selection was ample, great local-focused beer list, and the food was fantastic. Casual atmosphere that I could easily see becoming a regular haunt.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Seafood for a SongOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 5/20/2013I LOVE this place for a great piece of fish at a reasonable price. If you're an oyster lover you can't beat their Monday/Thursday special - fresh on th half shell at the bar. Always a full house but they'll find you a spot. Formerly owned Fishmonger, which was more upscale but the fish here is just as good. Feels like Florida, you can wear your flip flops and cutoffs.Special Features:
- Don't expect much!DisappointedDined on 5/10/2013We dine here for the first time and we were not impressed. The menu left a lot to be desired. The choice was limited. The food was ok but nothing to brag about. For the money we could have eaten better seafood. The service was awful. Took forever to get a refill on drinks. The waitress was a total airhead. I would not waste my time going to the restaurant.
