Fontaine’s Oyster House – classic Atlanta seafood restaurant
While seafood abounds at this long time Atlanta restaurant, Oysters are the specialty here. Besides a selection of raw oysters, if you like the cooked variety choose from Oysters Rockefeller, Crab and Bacon Oysters or Oysters Scampi.
This Sandy Springs restaurant has oysters from plain jane raw to crabmeat and jalapeno, but my favorite are the grilled with bbq butter (pictured above). Check out our video at Hammock’s Trading Company.
If you’re on the north side of town, head to Hugo’s in Roswell. They’ve got a happy hour with fantastic food, and the decor is fun and festive too. You’ll never know what kind of oysters they’ll have available but the variety is fantastic.

If you are on the north side of town you definitely need to head to Lapeer in Alpharetta. Not only is their rotating selection of oysters incredible, but they have their own house made hot sauce to compliment them. But there’s so much more to Lapeer than just oysters. The decor is gorgeous and they have excellent cocktails and oh my goodness their lobster pasta has my mouth watering. Check out my full post on Lapeer here.
I totally didn’t expect to LOVE the oysters here as much as I did. When I think of slurping down some fresh oysters, this is one of the first spots that comes to mind. If you’re in Decatur, I highly recommend checking out this spot for National Oyster Day!
If you enjoy oysters, make sure to get an order at Lure. They always have whatever is currently in season, so ask your server what the day’s specials are. They are served with cocktail sauce and horseradish as expected, but also a shochu mignonette.
