REVIEW: W.H. Stiles Fish Camp, Ponce City Market, Atlanta, Fulton
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last six months and haven’t been to Ponce City Market, we want to encourage you to make the trip. On our last visit, we dined with Atlanta foodie celebrity @sashaeats at The Mercury and didn’t have time to look around. On this visit we could not believe how much has changed just since we were there last just a few months ago.
One place we’d been waiting to open was W.H. Stiles Fish Camp, affectionately referred to as “Dubs”. This is modern seafood in an urban setting brought to you by Chef Anne Quatrano renowned for Bacchanalia, Floataway Café and Star Provisions. There is full service at the counter hightops and seating available for ordering at the counter in the rear. Weekends are understandably crowded so plan accordingly. The menu is limited and much of it is small plates rather than a full course meal service. It’s a perfect menu for light meals while shopping or walking around Ponce City Market.
I ordered the Shrimp Po Boy and Melanie selected the She Crab Soup. One thing that was very unique was the wooden cutlery which we loved for its sustainability. The Shrimp Po Boy had a generous helping of fried shrimp that were large and not overly breaded. The bread was soft and tasty and I loved the fresh lettuce and the spicy remoulade sauce. This was an awesome sandwich that was quite filling. Melanie was unable to finish her bowl of She Crab Soup and found it to be quite enjoyable.
We also ordered the Spoonbread which is like cornbread. It was light and fluffy and just delicious. The most remarkable dish was the Crab Fritters – OMG you have to try this! These are fried balls of lump crab meat, corn and herbs served with a remoulade sauce that you’ll kill for.
For a casual seafood lunch or dinner at Ponce City Market, W.H. Stiles Fish Camp is the ticket! We have to say that this is a MUST VISIT restaurant in Atlanta diners. We had a great time there and we think you will too! Guten appetit!
