Great vibes at Wahoo Grill – I have always loved the experience of dining outdoors. Wahoo Grill is just one of my most favorite restaurants since the atmosphere is truly amazing. The food here is wonderful and the place is very laid back.
great seafood – The seafood here is wonderful! I had the calamari and the tuna, and both were prepared exactly the way I like it. I'm definitely coming back.
Outdoor Dining at its finest – Here in Atlanta, we’re blessed with fantastic warm weather 7 to 8 months out of the year. This provides ample opportunity to hit the courts for some tennis, the course for a round of golf or to get on the bike and go for a ride.
So now that we’ve got the beautiful sunny days covered, what about those long, sweet summer nights… when the sun is no longer beating down on you, the humidity has dissipated and you’re looking to get out into the night and enjoy a meal under the stars? Fortunately, the ATL boasts a plethora of restaurants with outdoor seating. BUT, I wanna clear something up and set the record straight right off the bat: simply putting tables outside a restaurant or on a sidewalk DOES NOT outdoor/patio dining make.
A true patio or outdoor dining experience transports you away from the hustle, bustle of the city. Its void of all the sounds and smells of Atlanta traffic… it puts you in a place that is relaxing and inviting. And for my money, the best patio dining in Atlanta is at Wahoo Grill in Decatur.
Sadly, the food at Wahoo will not blow you away. It’s good, not great. The menu has items that you’ve pretty much seen in one form or another on other menus, there’s nothing overly creative or different. But what Wahoo does have (and what they have is better than any other place in Atlanta) is a beautiful, fantastic patio out back. Instantly you can see that Wahoo has put significant time and planning into designing and maintaining their patio. When you walk out to the patio, you first notice that its covered with these white/light gray rocks that give it a nice, clean look that is different than any other restaurant patio you’ve ever seen. You look up and find yourself almost awestruck at how beautiful it is. There is an array of green trees and plants that surround and almost envelop the patio. You sit down for your meal and feel that you’re in someone’s private, manicured garden, or in a courtyard of a villa in the Italian countryside. It is simply that beautiful. The lighting is sufficient to allow you to see, but low enough to capture the intimacy and allure of true outside dining. It honestly feels as if you’re enjoying a meal in the beauty of the botanical gardens.
Wahoo also gets it right in that they’ve set up their patio so that there is sufficient space between the tables, thus giving you and your dining companion(s) privacy from everyone else there. The patio could easily fit plenty more tables, but Wahoo has stayed committed to creating the best and most inviting outdoor dining experience in Atlanta. Something they have definitely succeeded at doing and something I know you will thank them for after you enjoy a meal at what is the best outdoor dining spot in Atlanta.
Great Atmosphere and Patio and the Food is Out Of This World – As soon as you walk into Wahoo, you feel the good energy. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff is so knowledgable and friendly. They have fair prices and the food is stupendous. The patio is like no other I have ever visited. I had the pleasure with meeting with Chef Scott on a couple of occasions when we visited and he is a mastermind. The menu is out of this world and there is no place like it!
Best Patio in Atlanta - Creative Loafing 2009! But the real secret is the Bar! Thursday nights 1/2 off bottles of wine! and 2 for 1 appetizers from 5-7pm. BUST THIS ECONOMY AT WAHOO!!! Seafood Rocks! Gotta try the mussels and ahi tuna. Great Service!
Best Calamari Ever!! – Wow! That's all I can say about the calamari. My partner and I had dinner at Wahoo and ordered the calamari. Granted, we have traveled quite a bit and have had calamari all over the world, but never as good as it was at Wahoo. Just proves the point that gems can be found in your own backyard. We are now Monday regulars.
Best bartenders in town! – Gomez and I sat at the bar and the two rockin' hot lady bartenders gave us a few laughs as well as some great deals. We had 2 for 1 appetizers and a half price bottle of wine. The patio looks super pretty - a garden room and an outside space- and maybe we'll try that next time.
The Best Pation Dining in Atlanta – I go to Wahoo Grill more than any other restaurant in Decatur or Atlanta! My boyfriend and I love to be on their GEORGEOUS outdoor patio, especially on a beautiful fall day. The garden room is beautiful, too -it's all enclosed in glass and is a great option for when it gets a little chillier. If you dine there Monday through Thursday they offer an AWESOME pre-fixe menu with three huge courses for only $18. Which is great, becuase we can eat GREAT food, and still afford to splurge on some nice booze. They also have a great wine list and a really attentive and friendly staff. Totally go there!
good restaurant – well, as far as im concern, this place offers lots of healthy foods, thats why i preferred it than any other food chain
