Great staff! Great Patio! – We had a night out here .. more like an entire evening out here a few nights ago. I don't know why I had not been to this place before. Great food, great service... and it was not slow. Atlanta is notorious for its poor service so when you find a decent place to hang at with out wanting to write a message on the receipt, it's a plus. I have to admit I am a sucker for some fried shrimp. Definitely we will return soon, hopefully before it gets too cold.
Best patio in Atlanta – SFU is my favorite place in Atlanta to get fresh seafood. It's reasonably priced. From April to October the rooftop deck is a great place for business dinners as well as a great place to take a date. The food can take a while but the wait staff is good at keeping a full beverage in front of you.
I recomend this place to anyone that is looking for a reasonbly priced meal with a great atmosphere. Try the blackened shrimp tacos.
disapponted since the move – I have been eating at SFU for over 5 years, even before they move into the new building. I used to love it & ate there quite frequently, even bringing out of town guests there. I have been back a few times since the move into the new building. Today I went for lunch, with a date, & I found our waitress impatient. There was not a wait, there were tables available, so I am not sure what the rush was. She gave us very little time to peruse the drink menur, & barely gave us time to really examine food menu, which was slightly differen than in the pastt. We oredered drinks, which she delivered & then took the appetizer order. I wasn't ready to order my lunch entree & she seemed totally annoyed. I have worked in the service industry, there appeared to be no rush by looking it around. When she returned, I told her that we needed to slow the pace of everything, & she backed off a little after that. The calamari was the same great dish, as always. I ordered seared tuna for lunch, which used to come plated with wonderful slaw- they served it on a bed of spinach & other vegetables that seemed a soggy miss-matched mess with seared tuna crusted with black seasame seeds. I wouldn't have served them to anyone. Tuna quality was good & cooked properly, but in the current way that they plate & serve it, it was hardly worth $14.50. My companion ordered gumbo & a oyster poyboy. Gumbo was okay & the oysters on the poboy tasted as if they'd been deep fried earlier in the day, & weren't seasoned really well.
I will give SFU one more chance, because everybody is entitled to a bad day. I am not a restaurant snob, but I do understand good service & a good value; on this day I received neither. Try harder SFU, or it's over.
Great Seafood in the A – This place is a true hidden gem. The seafood is top-notch,with a wait staff to match. I ordered the gator bites for my appetizer, huge portion for 10.50 and served with a delicious dippin sauce. For lunch I ordered the calamari tacos with zucchini fries and my buddy got the crab cake po'boy, both were very tasty. The home-made chips instead of the typical fries were a nice touch. I'll defintly be back for more...
Terrible customer service – The manager at this place does not understand concept of customer service at all!!!!!
I came there with some people after a friend of ours graduated. We were a larger group and called ahead to make sure that they can sit us all. They did not tell us that the whole group had to be there for us to be able to sit.
We got there and 5 out of 9 of us were ready to sit down and order at least some drinks and appetizers. We were told that we can just sit and wait for the rest of our party to show up and the will not sit us.
I asked to talk to a manager and she told me that this is the rule and if I don't like it I can just leave. I have never in my life have been spoken to so rudely by someone who I was going to pay for a service.
So we just had to sit there and wait for the rest of the group to get in so we can sit down and eat the very mediocre food that they serve.
Such an unpleasant experience that I have told many friends about it and refuse to go to any of their locations ever again!!!
What a great place! – Six Feet Under is just awesome. A great restaurant. Great place to get a drink. Great seafood and food. Creative menu selection. I love the atmosphere. It has the feel of a nice restaurant but still maintains the neighborhood hang out feel.
Steamer is Best Thing on Menu! – Whenever I have been to Six Feet Under, we go with a group of people and split a steamer or two between all of us plus some appetizers. The steamer is basically low country boil fare with shrimp, mussels, clams, potatoes, spicy sausage and corn. Depending on the time of year this Westside location will have crawfish! Usually everyone can find something that they'll eat. Our favorite appetizers to get are fried oysters, hush puppies and one or two other things that seem interesting. The wait staff has never been that great, but then again, our group doesn't go there for the service. This is definitely not on the same level as other area pubs...it is more of a college twenty-something crowd. We go for the food, the goodtimes, and the beer.
so chaotic – Parking was a pain! For a weekday evening, it was somewhat crowded, but not crowded enough to have poor service. I sat down with 5 other people, and we had 3-4 different servers approach us. Not to mention, my salad was super salty, and refills on the drinks also came slow, then the check took about another a thousand years. The servers seemed nice, but their appearence for a Midtown restaurant was definitely for a rock show. Expect a wait for the roof top of course, it's always the high demand for 6 feet under.
Good patio and good beer - if you're willing to wait – I love to go to 6FU on Memorial Drive for a quiet beer. I've never liked the food, but the cozy atmosphere made up for that. Going to the Westside location was like a bad dream. The food was just as bad as ever, the service was unbelievably slow and valet parking....let's just say it's a total 180 from the other location - it has none of its charm.
DANGEROUS PARKING ON STREET - USE VALET – First time at this place - my window go broken into and my stuff was stolen. I was inside for 1 hour on a Sunday afternoon. I asked the manager if this is common and he said " it happens several times a week." DONT PARK ON THE STREET.
