My wife and I stopped by for a weekend "lunch" of oysters. Sometimes you just get those cravings! Anyway the service was great and the oysters tasted very fresh. They had three different selections. Since it was Mardi Gras week, the oysters went very well with an Abita TurboDog or two. So if you can't get to New Orleans, this is a great place to stop. My wife had a grouper sandwich that she said was outstanding also.

We were in the downtown area, and decided to go to mid town to the Virginia Highlands area for lunch. Tried Fontaine's for the first time. Franco was our waiter, and he provided over the top, friendly service. Made us feel right at home. My wife had the best caprese salad ever. I had a grilled chicken sandwich that was off the charts. Some of the best food we have had in a while.

Best variety of oysters I've ever seen. Sat at the bar and had excellent service, food, and drinks. This is a must visit if you're in Atlanta.

Fontaine's is a great neighborhood oyster bar and seafood restaurant. Tuesdays the special is a dozen of the house oysters for $7. Our favorite is the shucking bar by the front door where you can stand and talk with the regulars while shone shucks oysters for you. Good selection of beers on draft and bottle.

Great service, food, atmosphere and sitting out on the patio listening to the acorns dropping unto the roof just added to the ambiance. Could have shared as the portions were very generous! Loved the tree outside coming right through the roof. Ladies restroom could have been a little cleaner.
