    Smoked fish chowder & the she crab soup are delicious. Seafood plateaux is fresh & fantastic. Swordfish in duck fat and short rib. Don't forget to order a side of hushpuppies. Great wine election.

    We had three kinds of oysters, which were really fresh, the whole fish (branzino), shrimp a la plancha and crispy Spanish octopus. Sides - hush puppies and the broccoli/spring onion. Excellent!

    Great place for lunch, go somewhere else for dinner. Food was adequate, beer was warm and extremely overpriced, the service was outstanding, which kept it from spoiling the evening.

    If you just want oysters, i'd recommend coming during happy hour and getting the chef's choice where he picks 13 for $13. The oysters are absolutely delicious so you'll probably want another round...

    Hands down the best restaurant in Atlanta! Get the She Crab Soup, Peel and Eat GA Shrimp (messy but worth it!), the duck fat swordfish (holy it's good!), and fish & chips (huge!). Valet is only $3.
