If you are from the Southeast, you know how you like your seafood, especially your oysters. Being rarely new to this cuisine, I actually feel as if I have become some sort on critic in this department due to the large amount I seem to consume (only during season, which we all know is the months that end in "R"). Aside from just oysters, when it comes to healthy eating, I find myself gorging on the sea rather than the land. With the greatest southern service one could ask for, and one of the largest selections of fresh seafood, Atlanta Fish Market has become a "must try" in my book. Its comfortable, neighborhood atmosphere is a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the normally busy Buckhead. Don't think for a second it is a snooze-type of restaurant for even a minute. Weekends are flavored with a side of live music and the happy, intoxicating buzz of people enjoying their weekends. With more than 100 fresh varieties from the deep flown in fresh daily, this place has something for everyone. Portion sizes absolutely justify the menu price, and the freshness of the seafood is fairly remarkable, considering the locale.

Both of my fish dishes were delicious and were served with well designed sauces and broths. Apparently, I am not the only one to notice this smorgasbord Atlanta Fish Market offers its guests. They have won several awards already in 2014 and we still have snow on the ground (or a chance of snow). Some awards include (but are most certainly not limited to): Jezebel Magazine's "111 Must Try Tastes!" -Fresh Maine Lobster Roll (2014); OpenTable Diner's Choice Award "Most Booked" (February 2014); Zagat Survey's "Most Popular Atlanta Restaurants" (2013); Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau "Atlanta's 100 Signature Dish List"-Hong Kong Style Chilean Sea Bass (2013).
