We've been working hard to develop a plan to protect our guests & employees as we reopen our dining room. We take this responsibility seriously. Before you proceed with your reservation please take a moment to review our response to COVID-19.

- Enhanced safety & cleaning protocols: You can learn more about those efforts at fifthgroup.com/clean.

- We’ve gone cash-free: This will help us reduce points of contact between team members & guests.

- 20% service charge: We’re adding a 20% service charge to all guest checks in lieu of gratuity. This fee will be used by the restaurant to cover the additional wages paid to staff and other atypical expenses related to COVID-19.

Inspired by coastal traditions, Lure presents Atlanta’s freshest fish and the drinks to match. Anchored in the heart of Midtown, Lure bridges the gap between a weathered fish house and a fine-dining seafood restaurant, so join us dressed up for a four-course meal or down for a beer and platter of fresh oysters.

The food was delicious and the service was great. The pricing is a bit high. But I was on vacation and wanted to have a nice atmosphere to eat with my significant other. They fit the bill. Great atmosphere and great drinks. The Hush Puppies are incredible.

What can I say about Lure? It was a superlative dining experience. My girlfriend and I ate out on the covered patio during the rain and it was a lovely setting. Our server, Taylor was very friendly and took excellent care of us, and the manager, David, introduced himself and helped us out when we needed it. And the food - so delicious! My girlfriend had the Cajun BBQ shrimp, and I had the Louisiana catfish - both dishes were full of flavor and the serving sizes were generous. We also tried the Vidalia onion hushpuppies, and they were flavorful, light and not oily at all. For dessert the homemade donut with the homemade butter-pecan gelato was the final act of what was a fantastic dinner. Really, it was one of the best dining experiences in recent memory. I'm so happy to recommend it!

Patrick, our server, was knowledgeable and super friendly. We enjoyed the covered patio seating (the ambience inside was great, too) and our dishes were well composed and cooked to perfection. Get the crab dip, just do it

One of our favorite local places to dine. The shrimp cocktail which I tried was disappointing, but the catfish was excellent and the wife said the lobster roll was excellent. Service and ambience are very good. It's a nice place to dine.

There’s no parking. No valet, just a shady guy telling you to pay him to park. Unsure if he was even allowed to do that. $10 is quite a penny for parking so far away. The food was hit or miss for us. The expectations were high and we felt like some of the food failed. Specifically— the charbroiled oysters which were not charbroiled at all. The crab dip was very tomato heavy. The ceviche lacked seasoning. The lettuce wraps were delicious. The Caesar salad is a complete fail. Do not order it. The restaurant was out of salmon, so I ordered the red fish with the same sides that came on the salmon plate. Delicious!! The cauliflower was not good at all. The surf & turf entrees didn’t get the potatoes at first, so we had to flag down a server to bring them. They were very lackluster. The drinks were perfect. Kudos to the bartender! For three people, we spent about $500. The value was not there. Like, seriously— whoa. We really loved our server Dee. He was absolutely amazing! We were sort of thrown off by the fact that the restaurant put a service fee in lieu of gratuity. Had we not read the disclaimer on the digital menu, we would not have known. The servers only get paid $10-$15/ hour and I’m quite sure they’re used to making more than that. We gave our server a nice tip in cash. Shame on the restaurant for not giving them anything more than an hourly wage.

Lobster week!! Delicious lobster bisque. The filet in the surf and turf was perfectly cooked, well seasoned and served with an amazing bernaise sauce. The lobster tail was not to my taste. Service, as always, was excellent.

Lobster fest was delicious!!! The lobster dumplings were phenomenal and had us contemplating a second order! I got the citrus poached lobster which was cooked to perfection. My hubs got the lobster roll and loved it just as much! Drinks were great too! Our server, Haki, was upbeat and very attentive! Only thing was the dessert we wanted wasn’t on the menu (blackberry truffle) and our server didn’t know until he went to place the order! He hyped it up so much that was what we wanted to try! Oh well! Maybe next time! Overall great choice for dinner. Oh also, everyone had on masks (staff 24/7, patrons in common areas except while eating at their tables), we sat on the covered patio and social distancing of tables was practiced!

Lure is a quality place, everything is good. It was very quiet the night we dined there, not much business for whatever reason. They are taking very good steps to protect everyone.

I recommend it, we dine there once a month or so.

The precautions that are being taken at Lure create a comfortable and safe environment. The patio is an excellent option. The food and service were excellent. My friend and I both had the scallops, which were cooked perfectly. The charred corn salad and pork belly served with it were also delicious. The chef is creative and comes up with unexpected combinations that balance the flavors and make the dishes unique and delicious. I'm already looking forward to visiting again soon.
