Our waitress was amazing!
Food was good until....red snapper was full of bones to the point you could not eat it. Sweet key lime pie was odd. The rest of our experience though was positive.
Food was excellent. Service was slow. Waitress was pretty forgetful. We had to ask for water twice. Price was decent. Overall, great experience.
I loved the casual atmosphere and the service was good. I also loved the complimentary boiled peanuts as there's not many places in ATL you can get that!
My husband loved the lobster bisque soup; he said it was the best part of his meal. He ordered the shrimp and scallops entrée with Caesar salad and brussel sprouts. He said the scallops were flavorful and were a good size.
I ordered the fried catfish with grits and brussel sprouts. The best of my dish were those brussel sprouts....sooooooo good! The fish, unfortunately, had no flavor and the grits weren't very good either.
The cheese that came on them was some type of white aged cheese that just didn't mix well with grits. I say always go with regular (orange) cheddar for grits.
Whole family got sick of the seafood. Beware.
Food was good but just a little pricey for my meal,could of had a little more on the plate.
The appetizers and drinks were amazing. Service was very good. Great ambience! Sat on heated patio. But main courses were just ho- hum. Go for drinks and apps! You won’t be disappointed .

Great place to enjoy a good meal, have a cocktail and listen to background music while still having a conversation with your dining guests. Great selection of fresh fish.
Patio seating is very good here. Wine and beer collection was also very good. I loved my Grouper.
Frequent diner at this location. Usually very happy with both food and service.
Skinny margarita tasted like lime juice (no agave?) - normally so tasty that I have 2 - not able to finish 1
Cosmo super weak - also left unfinished
Broccoli undercooked / no chargrilled flavor, no seasoning - not sure what happened here?
We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint! We had appetizers of peel and eat shrimp, oysters, jicama slaw, side salad, lobster cobb salad, and the lobster roll. The oysters were a disappointment as it seemed two of them were missing or very small - I did not like them at all but my companion like the ones that were there a lot.
Our server was very attentive and did not fail to bring any requests.
We finished off with a Key Lime Pie and a Cappuccino chocolate pie. They were perfect for a lovely end to the meal. We were visiting Atlanta for a concert and stayed just around the corner. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Food was great
Enjoyed!! Grilled Grouper and hush puppies were delicious. Pineapple Upside Down cake the best!! Would definitely be a regular eating spot for us!!
Quality seafood at prices that are not exorbitant means good value for the money.
Great food and great service. Although the atmosphere is casual, the service is always professional and friendly.
Our server Jesse did a great job. The lobster/crab dip and calamari appetizers we're very good. Best scallops and lobster bisque I've ever had.
Food was ok. Not great but not bad either. I didnt really care for my catfish dish and lobster rolls are entirely too small for the price. Just average but will more than likely will give another shot.
We split items so that we could taste more items. Enjoyed the fish of the day, but told waitress that it was overcooked. I did not want a replacement. Dessert for birthday was delicious. Would return to try other items on menu. Pricing was good.
I enjoy going there during warm weather and sitting outdoors, eating, reading the newspaper, and listening to their nightly band. The service is always good. The food is good, not exceptional (Atlanta is not an ideal seafood city), but I enjoy the salmon. It's very civilized and casual dining there.
Really delicious food, very friendly staff - great experience :)
Barkeep Cole was great
Amazing lobster rolls! Busy on Tuesday night but our waitress was spot on. We’ll definitely be back!
Celebrating a birthday.
Seafood cooked perfectly and to our order ( not ways on the menu)! Great waitress! very casual and laid back. We had the grouper with beer batter (not on menu) FANTASTIC! Oysters were fresh and properly shucked. Great place, we will be back!
Lobster Roll was delicious! Choose Brussel Sprouts as your side. Crab dip for an appetizer is the way to go!
Normally great food, but...
This trip though;
my entire meal came out only lukewarm . We were running late for a movie so didn’t send back as I should have.
My wife ordered the crab cakes. Halfway through her dinner, she decided they didn’t “ taste just right”, and did not finish any more of her meal. In all fairness the manager ( when stopping by to ask about our meal) took my wife’s crab cakes off our check, even though we didn’t ask for that.
Later before getting home, my wife became very ill. We called back to warn the establishment about the crab cakes , hoping to head off problems for other patrons.
Outstanding grouper always. Seafood bisque fabulous. Most everything top drawer.
The lobster roll was not good. Not recommended. The oysters not ideal. Too much shell and grit, and they were small and not a great flavor. The service was good. This place is not so wonderful but some items are good. The salmon is fine.
Great food, great service ~ we will definitely dine here again.
Bad experience. Waiter was terrible. Had to constantly ask for things over again. Lobster roll tasted "off." This is our second bad experience. We won't be returning. Don't recommend.
Enjoyed our scallops! Savory! Tuna poke appetizer delicious and creative. Lobster cobb salad was delightful and lobster succulent. Service was professionally friendly and prompt. Thank you, Big Ketch! We will return.
Staff attentive and efficient. Great management- excellent follow up.
We had family visit from out of town and desired location that had outdoor side and good seafood. Location was in Buckhead and had great food and service!
We sat on the patio and the musician playing guitar was outstanding. I ordered the fish of the day and it was over cooked, as usual. The food is very hit and miss. I like the place and it is close to my house but I’m still searching for a solid dish.
Grouper out of this world! Servers very accommodating.
The lobster roll was awesome
Amazing food . Comfortable atmosphere . Server not very attentive . Hostess was friendly and personable .
I am a fan of eating here I invited someone else and tonight the food was poor . The salad and broccoli was old! Very disappointed!😩
Big ketch,food was very filling and satisfying. My first time eating Grouper, and it was soooo Good! Not to mention the waiters that took our order was very knowledgeable about all we asked about our food! When the next time I'm in Atlanta, I will visit this place for sure again.
