Shrimp and Catfish Tacos

1.3 miles from the Courthouse. What started off as a neighborhood seafood joint in quiet Grant Park, slowly turned into an Atlanta phenomenon.  Located on the Memorial Dive corridor just a few feet from Ria’s Bluebird and across the street from historic Oakland Cemetery (hence the name), Six Feet Under is so popular that lunch on weekdays is about the only time you can go without a considerable wait to get seated.  During the week though is where you’ll likely spot familiar faces from our Georgia legislature and judiciary.  One room is filled with plasma tv’s to watch sports and the news while the other is a dining room more conducive to reading or trial prep.

As far as the food is concerned, fried or blackened fish is the way to go here.  The cornmeal crusted fried fish (scallops, shrimp, oysters, catfish, or cod) comes with homemade potato chips and hush puppies.  Highly recommended are the killer coleslaw or zucchini fries which can be added for a few bucks.  Blackened catfish, crab cake po’ boy, shrimp (or scallops) and grits, fish stew, and the shrimp or catfish tacos are other standouts.  There are certainly plenty of bucket options too such as crab legs, peel and eat shrimp, little neck clams and mussels (tough to pull off with the suit and tie though).   For non-seafood eaters, the burger has been highly praised in the local media and is a worthy alternative as are the boneless buffalo wings.  For vegetarians, a vegetable plate is offered with choices ranging from turnip greens, okra, white beans, corn salad and asparagus to the aforementioned slaw and zucchini fries.

For a quick(er) in and out, sit at the bar and order right away.  Also, a little insider’s tip, you can order the blackened catfish as a po’ boy (not on the menu) and it is outstanding.
