10 Best Seafood Restaurants in Georgia

If there’s one thing folks in Georgia know, it’s food—how to cook it, how to eat it, and where to find the best. If you’re craving lobster, calamari, or something else from the raw bar, head to one of the 10 best seafood restaurants in Georgia—you won’t regret it. 

1. Marietta Fish Market, Marietta, GA

It may be hours from the coast, but the only place you’ll find fresher seafood is in the Atlantic Ocean itself. Portions are big, taste is amazing, and service is better than average. In short, it’s the best place in the Atlanta metro to turn your lunch hour into a beach vacation.

2. Chive Sea Bar and Lounge, Savannah, GA

Upscale digs infuse the best tastes of the sea with Southern and Asian influences. Reminiscent of a 1920s hangout, this place is the perfect balance of refreshing and exquisite. Their menu features raw bar items, lobster, scallops, prawns, and striped sea bass, to name a few. There are also a few land animal favorites, like wagyu steak, for the non-seafaring appetites.

3. Skipper’s Fish Camp, Darien, GA

Combining some of the best of seafood and dry land favorites, you won’t find a more diverse menu anywhere else in town. Their menu includes common items like wings, shrimp, calamari, and oysters, and some not-so-common dishes like buffalo alligator tail and fried zucchini. The atmosphere itself is worth a visit: the 11-foot mounted alligator, brick floor, and beautiful waterfront views make this a dining experience you won’t forget. 

4. Six Feet Under Pub and Fish House, Atlanta, GA

With two Atlanta locations, you’ll have every excuse to fill your seafood cravings when you visit the city. Part seafood house, part beer haven, they’ve combined a hearty draft beer selection that pairs perfectly with their delicious shrimp, oysters, fish, and better-than-average pub grub. What sets them apart from most pubs is their variety of healthy and comfort food options: fried, baked, broiled, raw, steamed, and grilled options means there’s something for every appetite.

5. Ray’s on the River, Sandy Springs, GA

Nestled on the Chattahoochee River, Ray’s on the River is a meal with a view. Their menu is rich with seafood favorites, like lobster dishes, ahi tuna, grouper, salmon, crab cakes, and calamari, to name slight few. If you’re not in the mood for seafood, they also serve up the best steak in town.

6. Fish Tales, Flowery Branch, GA

Located on beautiful Lake Lanier, this fish house is about as beachy as it comes. A bright, vibrant interior greets guests and sets the tone for fresh seafood and sunny waterfront views. They’ve got a huge range of seafood dishes, sandwiches, salads, and appetizers, with several non-seafood meals in the mix. Their abundance of healthy options make them one of the best places in town to sate your appetite.

7. Oyster Bay Seafood Cafe, Lawrenceville, GA

This classic downtown tradition reflects pieces of Lawrenceville history at every angle. Their menu is loaded with originality: whiskey shrimp, crab crusted salmon, and the smoked fish melt are just a few of the surprises you can expect. Portions are generous, so make sure you come hungry!

Fresh, wild-caught seafood means you can expect only the best from this fish market and restaurant. They bring in fresh-from-the-boat seafood at least four times per week, offering plenty of variety you’d typically only expect from a beach town. You can find just about any type of fish or shrimp imaginable, along with soft shell crab, oysters, scallops, and even frog legs. Pair them with your choice of side or soup, or grab to go for your own cooking pleasure.

9. Fish Thyme Restaurant, Acworth, GA

10. Fontaine’s Oyster House, Atlanta, GA
