Atlanta may be landlocked, but we sure do know our stuff when it comes to seafood.
Last week's Best of Atlanta poll found out who serves up the best bites from the sea.
Located on The Square in downtown historic Lawrenceville, Oyster Bay Seafood Café is a Florida-style restaurant known for their smoked fish dip, stuffed grouper, conch fritters and fresh oysters. Enjoy this first place winner this summer with family and friends.
Coming in second place, Crawfish Shack Seafood is a Cajun-style restaurant on Buford Highway with a twist of Vietnamese fusion. All of their food is cooked to order and uses live seafood during their respected seasons.
In third, The Optimist brings a seaside fish camp experience to landlocked Atlantans. From fresh oysters from the Alabama coast and Maine sea scallops to whole roasted Georgia trout, guests enjoy high-quality, sustainable seafood from the country’s best suppliers.
If your appetite for all things seafood is insatiable, then we've got your back with our other official nominees: Six Feet Under (Intown), Hugo's (North Fulton), Kyma (North Fulton), Kimball House (DeKalb), Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar (Cobb) and popular write-in nominee The Juicy Crab (locations in Cobb, Gwinnett and Atlanta).
Perhaps you need to do a little sampling before casting your vote. Awaken your seafood taste buds at these Atlanta restaurants.
There are few things better than Cajun seafood done right. Hit up these joints for all the flavor you can handle.
Did somebody say lobster? Nothing says summertime quite like a lobster roll. Yum.
