Recently, Eat This, Not That explored the variety of seafood eateries throughout the country. The publication sought to dig into the best spots based on Yelp data. Every restaurant ranked on the list is under the “seafood” category on the crowd-sourced review website. What determined which is the best is the number of reviews and star ratings for each establishment.

“From hole-in-the-wall locations to fine dining fare, this list goes to show that good seafood can fit every budget. So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to dive into the best seafood eateries America has to offer,” it said.

Georgia’s top-ranked seafood spot is an eatery that spent two decades as a Buckhead institution before moving to Midtown.

Steamhouse Lounge is described by Eat This, Not That as a spot that “offers as much character in its menu as it does its atmosphere.”

After leaving the upscale Atlanta neighborhood, it relocated its bar, staff and beer on ice to Midtown in 2008. Since then, it has opened its doors to hungry patrons eager to delight in daily specials. And they can do so from inside the two-story, 100-year-old house or outside on the wrap-around deck, where there’s also a bar.

“My favorite Hot Spot Bar in Midtown. I can never go wrong .. the food is always hot and tasty.. lots of variety. I stick to the Seafood. I love the Garlic Parmesan Oysters for starters. I have eaten all the Seafood selections and they all are good,” Yelp reviewer Ashlye B. wrote.

She’s not alone. More than 800 Yelp reviewers have given this spot an average of 4 out of 5 stars.

Steamhouse Lounge is also a favorite of longtime Atlanta staple and Kiss 104.1 morning host show Frank Ski. He told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution it was among his go-to spots in the city, which he has called home for more than 20 years.
