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.

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 being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Food was excellent, service was horrible. Appetizer came out quickly, ahead of drinks, dinner was a long wait - soup was delivered after main.

the service we had was shocking...a few of us had cold food when told about it...they never replaced it....one person asked for another drink when their drink was still 1/3 full...she took that drink then he waited about 15 minutes for another.
have been to many other Legal Sea food restaurants which were good...this one sucks!
we were told they were so busy....when we got there there were so many empty tables

Food was okay but not great for the price. Portion was small for chowder and entree.
We have found a better value for fish at Atlanta Fish Market.
I would bypass this one.

I took my wife here because she loves seafood. During our visit, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was very lovely. This by far was our best dining experience.

We have celiac and were very impressed by the attention to our allergy. We got there early so not all the servers were on duty and the meal took a while but we had a lovely leisurely meal.

From start to finish my service was exceptional. I made a reservation and although I was a little late they still accommodated me and I was seated as soon as I arrived. Our server Tae was very upbeat and energetic, he also had great knowledge of the menu and his suggestions were superb, as this was our first time dining here. The manager Reggie and general manager Peter came around to check on everyone and asked how our dining experience was going and offered to get anything else to accommodate us. When the food arrived it was awesome, from the presentation to the taste, Chef Cat did really well and the food was the best and freshest seafood I’ve had in Atlanta.

We had a great time at Legal Seafoods on Valentine's day. We were a bit skeptical in booking due to some bad reviews we saw. Our experience was excellent--our server could not have been more attentive and friendly. We were seated and served quickly despite a very busy day. My husband's tuna was more medium than medium rare, but he was fine with it. I loved my lobster. Would definitely visit again when in Atlanta

It was Valentines Day and they didn’t have all the appetizers on the menu. Love the location in Boston not so much Atlanta

The food was undercooked and was served cold. The coconut shrimp appetizer was the only item worth ordering and eating.

My wife and I had a great time celebrating Valentines Day. Our server Heather was fantastic, she was very attentive and continually looked for ways to enhance our experience. However, we and another couple had to complain about the music. Here we were trying to enjoy a romantic evening on Valentines Day and you all were playing "loud Rap Music". Your management should be keen and sensitive to the occasion. My wife and I are African Americans and the majority of your customers were the same. However, it did not appear that anyone enjoyed such poor choice of music. This music and not having a candle on the table were discouraging. Your management did eventually changed the music to something more appropriate for the occasion.

I hope our future visits does not find us complaining about the same, otherwise we will be your ex-customers. Again, we had a great time with great food and a fantastic server.

All the best,

Winston and Margaret
