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.

The lobster was fantastic. The staff advised they fly them in fresh nearly every day. The four of us each ordered the medium size which was a generous portion and perfect for our appetite.

The waitress and waitress in training did an ok job. When the trainee was left alone to tend to us it was not an experience you would like in an upscale restaurant like this.

The wine was great the food terrific and service failed to meet expectations.

Decided to have late lunch at Legal after a morning of tours and walking the area all around Centennial Olympic Park.

I chose the fish tacos (first in my life!) and I was absolutely not disappointed. The corn tortillas were spot on and the fish had a good crunch with bright tastes from the cabbage and pico. Didn’t get a chance to try their cocktails, but the menu raves about them. Would recommend this restaurant if asked.

I had a combo-type sea food platter. Everything was sauteed or grilled. No breading! Delicious! The mashed sweet potatoes were amazing, too!

My mom and I went here on our trip to Atlanta. We had the calamari as an appetizer. It was okay, there was a lot of it. I had the stuffed lobster tail with shrimp and scallops. It was way too buttery and not a true stuffing. It was like Ritz crackers were crushed and mixed with butter and onions, not a good taste. The shrimp, scallops, and lobster tail were very good on their own. I wished I had gotten that instead of the $52 stuffed lobster tail.
