Show the ocean who’s boss by gulping down large quantities of its delicious denizens. With today’s Groupon, $10 gets you $25 worth of seafood and spirits at Steamhouse Lounge, the popular Midtown seafood restaurant owned by Nightcap Food & Spirits, the group that brought you Vickery’s, Fontaine’s, Gene's Haufbrau, and Highland Tap.
Hailed by Jonathan Swift as an act of bravery unparalleled by lion-taming, eating oysters is more than a competitive sport. Extol the mouthwatering shellfish from the deck overlooking the city, or grab a beer and a bucket at the oyster bar. Whether you spend a sunny day on the palm-tree-festooned patio or cozy up to the inviting downstairs bar, there's always an opportunity to show off your signature finger dexterity and monkey toes with a bucket of shuck-em-yourself oysters ($16 for two dozen). The massive menu at Steamhouse Lounge also offers a decadent lobster bisque (cup $4.50, bowl $6) to warm you up and a wide variety of fresh seafood entrees. Try the fisherman’s platter (piled full of fried oysters, shrimp, and catfish with hush puppies and unfried coleslaw, $26) or the rich and delectable snow-crab dinner (with corn, coleslaw, and garlic cheese toast, $21).
Keep your palate and the conversation from drying up with a cold brew, or sample the variety of specialty drinks, such as the signature goombay smash (Cruzan coconut rum with pineapple, orange, and lime juices topped with dark rum, $7). Steamhouse Lounge is open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to midnight 363 days a year. Order from the kitchen until 11:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight on Friday and Saturday.
This Groupon is not valid during Oysterfest weekend, February 20 and 21, 2010.
Steamhouse Lounge was nominated for Best of Atlanta Seafood by Metromix. Citysearchers, Kudzu users, and a Creative Loafer give Steamhouse Lounge a perfect five-star rating, and 83% of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant:
- Frogmore Skillet (oysters, shrimp, sausage, corn, potatoes) was delicious - hot and succulent. The fried oyster dinner was the same - cripsy [sic] and large oysters that had a great flavor and not gritty like they could have been. The fried shrimp in the dinner was spot on as well - breaded well and fried to a light golden brown. – Carol Bell, Urbanspoon
- Steamhouse has the best Lobster Bisque I have ever tasted. – John in Talladega, Citysearch
- Food and service are always excellent. – Todd, Urbanspoon
