Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar, Sandy Springs, GA

imageWe’d been hearing good things about Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar for weeks and, being seafood lovers, we were dying to check it out.

Our time came however, at the end of a long day shopping and battling traffic for the last hour. To top it all off, the GPS left us in front of an Animal Clinic wondering how in the world with this type of technology it can still be so wrong? Fortunately, we called and they talked us down. Needless to say neither of us were in the best of moods when we walked in, but Ahmeed changed all of that. His bright, pleasant personality and his confidence with the menu set us at ease and had us off to a great start.

We decided to get started with some soup. Melanie went with the clam chowder and I chose the seafood stew. Melanie enjoyed the flavor of the chowder but felt it could’ve been a bit thicker and richer. I thought the seafood stew was quite delicious with a large piece of fish, a shrimp and a clam contained within a hearty broth.

For our entrees, I went with the Platter and selected the fried shrimp and fish & chips. The fried shrimp was lightly battered and had a wonderful flavor. The fish was flaky and meaty. Fish normally, for me, is not that filling but this was quite a meal! Melanie loved her fish but the hush puppies – the one thing I can say is that we could achieve world peace is we had a sufficient quantity of these hush puppies – they ARE that good. In our food travels, we have seen hush puppies, especially homemade GOOD hush puppies, becoming more of a rarity when seafood and fish is served. We are so glad to see them at Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar.

We had a wonderful meal there with the combination of the wonderful food and the excellent hospitality shown to us by Ahmeed. Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar has to be on your MUST SEE list for Atlanta dining. Guten appetit!
