When we’re longing for carefree vacation vibes, we turn to this casual seafood joint that seems like it was plucked from the touristy coast of Hilton Head and accidentally placed in Buckhead. Rustic, nautical-themed decor adorns the walls, making the place feel like a spot that beach-going families from a landlocked state would adore. For us, the sizable outdoor patio is the main draw, and we could easily spend a balmy afternoon here sipping frosés and dunking tasty blackened grouper into tartar sauce. And the scallops that cut like butter are enough to warrant a return visit. But the sides could use some work, particularly the cement-like grits that even the server warns you to avoid. Also avoid their  $34 lobster roll in a hot dog bun, which was tough and flavorless.
