Fontaine’s has been a seafood fixture for VaHi locals for more than two decades, so the bright red neon sign with an arrow pointing you toward the door is, for lack of better terms, pointless. This is a dive bar that happens to serve respectable seafood, so it fills a void for Atlantans who want to eat lobster mac and oysters in an uber-casual environment. There are no elaborate shellfish displays sitting on a bed of ice here. Just low lighting, dark wood paneling, and creaky booths that’ve seen better days. Their menu is a mix of a few typical bar food offerings (burgers and hot dogs) and a tidal wave of credible seafood like crab cakes and blackened salmon.
