nachos seafoodThe warm days and beautiful sunshine of spring and summer can make us daydream of being on the beach soaking up the rays.  Unfortunately, there’s no beach in Atlanta.  But that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a seaside frame of mind.  Enjoying a great seafood restaurant with a laid back atmosphere can help cure that longing for the beach.  Here are a few things to look for in a good seafood joint.

  • Variety: A reputable seafood restaurant will likely offer a variety of choices.  Before you go to a seafood restaurant, check their menu online.
  • Quality: Never compromise on the quality of the food you eat, because it determines your health. Good quality food usually comes with a high price tag, but it does not have to be that way. There are plenty of seafood restaurants such as Hook Line and Schooner that offer good quality seafood at reasonable prices.
  • Service: The quality of the seafood is not the only criteria to use when determining if a seafood restaurant is good or not. The best seafood restaurants are known for their service and their food! You step out of a restaurant with a satisfied heart only when the service has been excellent!
  • Local food: A restaurant which offers local food will have fresher, more delicious food than one that does not. Making sure the seafood is fresh should be a high priority.
  • Hygiene: Is very important especially for seafood restaurants. If the staff, the restaurant and customer restrooms are clean, neat, tidy, well- appointed and maintained then the kitchen is probably clean too! After all, your health comes first.
  • Reviews: Check reviews for seafood restaurants online. You’ll learn about the ratings for food, service etc. as well as how other people enjoyed their experience and the food.
  • Ask your friends: Word of mouth is always a great way to find out about a good restaurant.  Ask your friends for the names of good seafood restaurants. They may have their favorites that they are happy to recommend.
  • Ambience: The ambience of the restaurant will set the tone for your eating experience. Make sure the atmosphere is in keeping with the mood you wish to enjoy, quiet and sophisticated or lively and entertaining.
