Meh. This place isn't BAD, so I'll give them a break, but it's not amazing. I think the other location on the other side of town has better service and a better atmosphere, but the food just lacks all around. If you're going to serve up seafood and spicy stuff, I'm going to need some serious seasoning and marinating happening. Anything fried on the menu is pretty good, though.
As for the service, horribly slow and forgetful. I'm not sure what these folks are doing. It's just very laid back as a whole so I think they assume you watching a football game there means you don't want your food in any hurry.
Kinda loud and noisy. Televisions everywhere and it is perfect if you like a lot of noise, but when you are trying to have a conversation it might be challenging. The food was calamari was omg incredible and the salmon blt sliders were worth coming back for. The combo tacos not so much, lot of filler not enough meat.
Perfect for what it is, casual varied seafood selection and pub favorites! I love this sort of edgy and awkward staff serving up raw oysters and and burgers in the city. Nice rooftop too...
Six Feet Under has to be one of my husband & I's favorite restaurants in Atlanta. We used to go to the location on Memorial, and were so happy when the Westside location opened right down the road. As many mention their seafood is amazingly fresh (and their fried shrimp is to die for). However, I must admit we often go for their burger which is one of the best in Atlanta!

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.

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.

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.
So happy that Six Feet Under opened on the west side. This is our favorite place for a nice night out to dinner. We usually end up getting one of the baskets-- catfish, shrimp, or the mixed basket-- wonderfully fried fish in perfectly seasoned batter with house-made chips and spicy hush puppies. The atmosphere is sort of pub-like, they do have tvs and plenty of bar room, but it's still very family friendly. Highly recommended.

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...

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!!!
