Fontaine’s Oyster Bar Atmosphere
I’ve always liked the atmosphere inside Fontaine’s Oyster Bar as it reminds me of an old-timey beach bar where sailors might hang out.
Of course sailors don’t hang out there, as far as I am aware, but they do serve up some delicious seafood, and especially delicious oysters.
The inside seating section is not very large, and the bar takes up most of the room. It’s pretty dark inside even though they have nice windows opening up at the front of the restaurant. I prefer to sit outside because it’s much more spacious, and even in the winter they heat the outside seating area.
They recently got rid of their smoking policy, so there is no smoking in the bar at any time. This makes the restaurant much cleaner and more kid friendly. You can still tell it’s been smoked in for the past 30 or more years.
On the weekends, Fontaine’s Oyster Bar becomes a happening spot, and you can find a bar full of twenty somethings imbibing delicious cocktails. If you haven’t tried the oyster shot, then you need to change your life and order one the next time you visit Fontaine’s.
Fontaine’s Oyster Bar Menu:
The menu is full of seafood deliciousness, and they Fontaine’s has specials throughout the week, which has helped make this restaurant an Atlanta staple.
The Oysters are always delicious and fresh tasting, and you can count on Fontaine’s having a great selection of oysters from around the country.
The cooked oysters are very tasty, and I recommend getting the oyster sampler so you can try all the different cooked oysters. My personal favorite are the Oysters Scampi, but I am the type who just can’t get enough butter.
The Snow Crab Legs are delicious, and very half priced on Wednesday nights. Sundays they serve half priced appetizers, and you can find the Snow Crab Legs on the appetizer menu as well.
Don’t forget the Hush Puppies because they are better than most places here in Atlanta.
