Seafood Restaurants in North Druid Hills

Select Local Merchants

The word "wahoo" can be defined as both an expression of joy and a type of fish. Wahoo! Grill came up with a third meaning for it: "An amazing restaurant, full of joy, warmth, and great food." And there's definitely plenty to be amazed by here, starting with the eclectic selection of seafood, ranging from fish tacos to seared scallops in pumpkin-seed butter. In a similar fashion, the brunch menu has shrimp and grits, as well as fresh-herb egg scrambles and hash-brown casserole.

But it's not just the Southern-style cooking that charms guests. The dining rooms are quite handsome; the exposed-brick main room has views of the modern exhibition kitchen, and a sun-drenched atrium that leads out to a patio lush with greenery. Elegant touches such as rustic chandeliers and high-backed upholstered booths have made the restaurant a popular venue for wedding receptions and an unpopular venue for food fight enthusiasts.

And whether you're toasting a couple's nuptials or just meeting friends for a Tuesday night nip, the drink list has plenty to offer. There's an international selection of reds and whites served by the bottle or glass, and the spirits list includes everything from bourbons to cordials. Those liquors go into specialty cocktails such as a Wahoo! spritz with Aperol and sparkling wine, though someone looking for something a bit hoppier can order a craft beer such as Red Brick Laughing Skull.

There’s nothing political about a steak, even if it comes from a steakhouse run by the children of DeKalb County’s former tax commissioner and county commissioner. John-Thomas and Christopher Scott, owners of Parker’s on Ponce, envisioned their space as a cozy meeting place for everyone in the neighborhood. Mullioned windows surround their dining room, where servers deliver the restaurant’s signature dish, the 16-ounce kansas city strip, amid two stone-faced fireplaces and twinkling tabletop candles. So perfectly prepared is this steak—along with the 16-ounce rib eye, 10-ounce filet, and a 32-ounce porterhouse—that the eatery garnered a Diner’s Choice nod for best steaks on OpenTable.com. Southern-style classics receive upscale twists as evidenced by the Carolina trout, which comes adorned with a citrus beurre blanc and white-cheddar grits, as well as bone-in pork chops and salmon served with a salsa of pomegranate and barbecued mango. To accompany the rich fare, the Scotts and their staff have curated a lengthy wine selection, which ranges from Italian pinot grigio to a merlot squeezed from moon rocks. They are skilled in recommending craft and large-format beers from around the globe or one of 12 signature cocktails created with top-shelf liquors.

With six children of his own, Lawrence Shamsid-Deen already had a big family, but it got even bigger when he opened Supreme Fish Delight. That's because he views his customers as kin. Thousands of them have returned to the restaurant time and time again to take advantage of Lawrence's kitchen bunk beds and fried fish sandwiches, made with a choice of whiting, catfish, tilapia, croaker, or trout. He enhances the flavor of each filet by topping it with a scoop of tangy cole slaw, whose juices can be soaked up with the fries and hush puppies that come with every fish dinner.

At first glance, Harbour Bar and Fish House exudes the vibe of a private seaside residence, from the wraparound porch to the brick fireplace inside. But the venue shows its true colors as a bustling seafood restaurant when the outdoor bar opens and the kitchen fills with chefs preparing fresh fish, such as grilled Scottish salmon and red grouper, all caught without nets. Sea-blue walls and an airy dining space further evoke the ocean, urging patrons to fashion makeshift peg legs from the natural wood flooring. Diners can engage in friendly competition on the bocce-ball courts and enjoy performances from live musicians Thursday through Sunday.

Oceania Seafood's menu is populated with fish, clams, and shrimp wrestled freshly from the ocean's salty grasp. Seafaring goodies emerge from the flapping kitchen doors, such as the bursting crawfish steam pot packed with 2 pounds of crawfish and a half-dozen helpings of clams, shrimp, and mussels, all supported by a bed of sausage, potatoes, and corn ($19.99). Kitchen fishermen boil 1-pound servings of spicy crawfish ($4.75) and lure fried oysters ($4.50/dozen) to tables with the false promise of replacing their precious pearls. Fried or blackened tilapia alights on the buns of half ($4.99) or whole po boys ($7.99), and patrons capture shrimp, scallops, and mussels with pasta nets in the seafood pasta ($12.99).
