Atlanta is known for its’ diverse taste in foods. If you’re looking for authentic foods or even a good ol’ American cheeseburger, Atlanta has got it. But, if you’re looking to fill your seafood cravings, Atlanta has got a good hand full of seafood restaurants that will keep you craving for more. Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House has been on my foodie bucket list for several months. Finally, a few weeks ago we were able to join in on the seafood craze. The atmosphere at the Memorial location brings you straight out from the city to the coastline.
The restaurant itself has the ultimate feel of extravagance to make you feel like you’re footsteps from the white sandy beaches. Sometimes it’s great to have that little ways away from home feel. Although parking was a little bit of a hassle, it still didn’t ruin my love for this restaurant. We parked about a block from the restaurant but this gave us the opportunity to enjoy the sun and enjoy our beautiful city of Atlanta. Upon our arrival, there was a slight wait. But that still didn’t stop us. Six Feet Under has this amazing app called NoWait. The app allows you to register your wait in line and notifies you when your table is ready. It also gives you an estimated wait time currently. I love it!
Six Feet Under has an immaculate menu. It’s not extravagant, but their beer menu is wide ranging. Bottled or Draft, they got it. From Cider, Ale, India Ale, Lager, you name it. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried their beer menu. This will have to be on my bucket list of to do’s. Mainly to at least try most of their beer menu. This also depends on location whether it is Grant Park or Midtown, they have a different selection on their beer menu. So if you’re up for trying new beers or really about trying all different kinds, Six Feet Under may be where you want to be. Their food menu, on the other hand, we did get to try.
If anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE seafood. I can literally sit and eat crab legs, crawfish, oysters, clams, all day LONG. We started off with a light appetizer with Steamed Shrimp and Scallops that was based with black lemon pepper. With their homemade jalapeno tartar sauce and hush puppies. My goodness, did that set off our meal just right. They also have their specialty appetizers that are namely; Spicy Rat Toes, Spicy Mouse Toes, Extra Spicy Dragon Toes, and Toe Jam. I know sounds disgusting, BUT I will say this, we tried their Toe Jam, which is a mix of all three, and I truly believe that they have this kick for jalapenos. And this may be one of their biggest specialties. For our main dish we ordered the Six Feet Under Steamer that was a meal for 2 people. We also ordered an extra King Crab claw, which was absolutely succulent, and an extra order of Fried Okra. You can’t go anywhere without ordering Okra. This meal has a combination of steamed seafood with Snow Crab legs, clams, mussels, shrimp, oysters, corn on the cob, new red potatoes, sausages, and their amazing jalapeno hushpuppies. I seriously think that even just writing about it is making me hungry for more. They add their melted butter and cocktail sauce with horseradish on top that really gives it the kicker. Kevin and I had a real difficult time finishing this meal but we did it. I was surprised that we did and it’s probably because I was wanting to try it out so bad. But how can you go wrong with steamed seafood? It really doesn’t get any better than this.
If you’re looking for a great new seafood joint to try out, give Six Feet Under Pub and Fish House a shot. This place will have you continuously drooling for more. Along with their extensive list of beer to keep you wanting to try more every time you visit. I’m ready to go back honestly. If you have a another seafood joint that we should try out, leave us a comment below. We’d love to try a new place!
