You can come here for one thing - the seafood bucket. So if you don't like seafood, don't come here. It's no nonsense. You just sit at a table and dig into a bucket of shrimp, crab legs, etc. The garlic butter is amazing and if you dip your garlic bread into the garlic butter, you will be very happy...and potentially die of a heart attack. Love this place.

My first time going here was two years ago after a friend recommended it to me. This hands down is the best seafood place in GA. I always get their bucket of crab legs and it is so big that I always split it with my sister. They have some of the best Gumbo in town too and Gumbo is not easy to make. It's very lively in there and the customer service is always great. I go eat there a few times a year, mainly when I have friends or family in town because I know they will love the food. The buckets are the best b/c you can split them and you get a ton of food.

Save your money, this place is worse than red lobster and costs more. I had fried seafood (the prices were high and I refused to pay $20 for food in what appeared to be a dive-bar). The oysters had shell pieces in some of them and grit sand on my teeth, this was beyond the usual amount you would expect, and the aftertaste on these oysters was awful. They also overcooked the seafood or it was of poor quality, can't tell which because both have the same lackluster end result. Slow service, cheap tables, bad seating, and horrible ambiance. The prices at this restaurant are those you would expect at a 3-4 star restaurant, but you get food that is a step above Long John Silver's (this is not hyperbole, it is what you actually get). They gave me a meager plastic bullet (container sauces come in, like pump it yourself take-out ketchup) that was half-full with tartar sauce, I asked for more and they charged for it. The french fries that can cost $1.50 extra for sandwiches (you get potato chips otherwise) are of the same quality you would get at Long John Silvers. I would never go here unless meals were priced at $5-$8 instead of $20 to $50. There are a lot of items on the menu that are over $20, and the items that are around $15 are uninspired overpriced versions of what you could get at another restaurant for $7-$8, so in my opinion add $7 to what something should cost and that is what is charged here. I read about this place on citysearch and decided to try it out, please take my advice and go somewhere else, if you do decide to eat here, please write your own review and warn others, they may not believe just me but if a few people consistently reveal the truth about this place, future travelers won't waste money and time here.

This was my first time eating at Spondivits and the food was pretty good. I'm from South Florida so I know about great seafood. If you are looking for a place that looks good on the inside and not loud this is not the place for you. The food is good and the wait could be a while if its the weekend.

Doesn't live up to the hype, and the vegetarian options are very poor (though I understand you're at a seafood place, so you wouldn't expect much). Dreadful location too unless you're at the airport with time to kill.

One word to describe this place- delicious. The food is so good its crazy. The wait was about 40 minutes but once seated the food was brought out promptly. It was extremley busy and the atmosphere is kind of "backwoodish" but that will be the last thing on your mind when you're scarfing on one of their delicious crab buckets. Try the place for yourself and you will be pleasently suprised! I'll def. be back!

The staff is very rude. The place is small and crowded. Although I must say I was told it is not as crowded as it once was due to a young lady dying from their oysters on last year. My staff and I will not be visiting when we are scheduled to be in Atlanta next year on our annual conference.

This did not live up to expectations. I thought it was going to be superb after I had been told by several people how terrific this establishment is. It didn't even feel like I was on a beach. Between the traffic and loud talkers there was little room for conversation. The only good thing was the service.

Most people rant and rave about this restaurant and I have yet to understand what the big deal is with it. I gave it a 4-star rating for the food, which is well prepared (for seafood). On the other hand, this location is always crowded and the wait staff is not what I would consider extraordinary. Pricing is sufficient for "fresh" seafood, I guess. Try it for yourself, and tell us what you think.

Me and a few of my friends decided to go out and have some good food and fun on 12/14/07.Ha this place was neither.The location is a mess it's cluttered and tacky.You can barely get in the door, let alone move around the place.You have to drive thru a McDonalds parking lot to get to the valet.The wait staff was rude(why would you put on ten pounds of make up just to walk around all night with a frown and attitude).We have lived in atlanta all of our lives and we would not recommend this place to any one.The food was fast food quality at a star diners price.If you are looking for a nice place to have dinner, a few drinks and fun, please dont waste your time

Cons: The junky facility and wait staff

This place is horribly overarted. We were seated promptly, the menu was decent. Our food took a really long time. Wasn't anything special, we wondered how this place was well regaurded? Why? When I got a to go box for some food the manager crammed a lot of food in a little box. I then asked for a larger box she said why? I said cause my food almost flowing out of this one. She said "oh". I said" I may not have the Rolls Royce but i prefer it all over my car. I am not wasteful and am more environmental then most, but to be questioned by her after the incredibly pisspoor service we recieved was astounding.This place only hires females and most need a training in how to serve a table. Most were looking around for their server from what we could see. Most were unattractive, so it was our guess this place certainley was geting by on an "Eye candy" factor. If you have taste dont dine here you will be sorely dissapointed. If you are into Jimmy Buffet and dig sports all around you and have never been accused of having taste this is your place. If you expect nothing but to open your walet cause u want buckets of seafoood (the Kernel's cousin a la seafood) go 4 it .

Cons: medicrity defined

My wife and I go here at least twice a month for 2 buckets of snow crab legs and drinks. (The seafood platter is good too!!!) Most crowded on Friday and Saturday nights but worth the wait. We always end up meeting someone new since half the crowd are people in town on business that are staying at one of the airport hotels or layovers who got stuck and needed somewhere to eat! If you go on Friday's, sit at the bar and ask for Kent! All the bartenders make great drinks and the food is always good. Don't forget to park across the street or use the valet in back.

Went here as it seemed to be a popular place. Food was lackluster. I've never been a big fan of red lobster, but save your money and go there instead.

I went here last year because someone who had moved here from another state (let's say state of Confusion) raved about it. I took one of my friends and was expecting something at least decent. We were both scared to sit in this place, let alone eat the food. It looked like it had not been cleaned in over two decades. We were both still trying to give it a shot thinking maybe the food was better than the atmosphere. My friend, a guy who was raised in the sticks, was scared to order anything...but went with the "safe" chicken fingers. We went somewhere else to eat. I would prefer to go to a stand on the side of the road instead of this place. The service was sub par. It seemed like the longest hour of my life.

Pros: You can watch your sports outside of your house with a few others and feel like you are in a parking garage

Cons: EVERYTHING....nasty

Poor service, awful managers. Maybe for regulars you have a deal worked out. But for anyone trying it out for the first time, may God be with you.

We went today after reading the reviews and were overly cautious because of several poor reviews. HOWEVER, we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was great (couldn't have asked for a more attentive waitress) and the food was delicious!!!!! The steamed combo bucket was well worth the $26 and was a HUGE portion! We did arrive early (4pm) due to the reviews and had no wait! Get there early and you will do fine. They served the coldest beer I've had in years! It was great overall!!!!!

Spondivits is not Red Lobster, Outback, or any other similar chain. It is primarily a bar that also serves really good seafood. The drinks are not watered down, and the servings are ample. It is true that it is cowded alot, and it is true that the wait times can be a little long. But, why is that? Because it is good! The clam chowder is awesome. The shrimp, snow crab legs, and king crab legs are wonderful and worth the money. Seafood and drinks are expensive by nature. If you are cheap, don't go because you wouldn't enjoy any other good seafood place, either. And, to the other post - Progressive is a car insurance company, and not a soup company. That would be Progresso.

I have not had any of the steaks or hamburgers. I go there for the seafood, and I will cook my own steaks and hamburgers at home. Enjoy!

I would not recommend this restauraunt if good service is important and the food is very,very overpriced for the portions received. My experience with Management when there has been a problem is deplorable. There are too many restaurants in the Atlanta area that not only offers good food but good service that goes with it. This restaurant is not deserving of the volume of business it receives.

I was not impressed by the service or staff. Yes, sassy but also crass! This was not the best experience. My food was undercooked when asked if I could have the meal prepared again the solution to the problem was that they take the same food and fry it again ( fish sandwich ) which was already fully dressed in the same cooking oil that everyone else in the place would get their food and then serve it back to me. The other solution was that they serve me another fish sandwich which I would have to take care of the bill to the one that was undone and the other. So paying double for one sandwich was what they rocommended. I will cancel my future engagements with this place and recommended that my business partners do the same.

I've been dining here for the past twenty-five years, and have always been treated with respect by the entire staff. It's Jimmy Buffet's favorite hangout when he comes to the city.

The Food: No fancy preparations, just good honest buckets of steamed seafood. Wonderful award-winning clam chowder, and strong drinks. Yes the service can be a little sassy, but who cares with seafood like this. Gratutity is added for amounts over $50.00, because it's the same ones who complaing, and don't tip. If you can't afford to tip, stay home. Andy Camp, Chef Glen Gagne, Rozelle, and former G.M. Mike May, make Spondivit's an Atlanta orginal. To another twenty-five years.

I regularly go to this Atlanta seafood with co-workers, we are hooked on the great seafood here. Yes, the prices for seafood are a little bit high, expect to pay about $25 for your bucket of seafood, but get real, seafood is expensive everywhere you get it! And here the prices for what you get aren't that bad at all...$25 for a whole pound of King Crab legs? Get there early or expect to wait in line as the place fills up FAST and you may have to eat at one of the tables outside. The service is somewhat slow, usually a little bit rude, and the atmosphere is LOUD. Part of what makes this a fun destination...go hungry, leave full of seafood. Take a big group, be paient, sit back and have a few drinks, trust me, it's worth it.

Spondivits truly does have the best seafood in town, hands down. Now the service is mediocre. There are good & bad waitresses, but if you want great seafood its worth the hassle to go and get it from this place. I have gone here a number of times & even though the service varied, the food was always great. Coming from a person that grew up on the Gulf where seafood was always fresh and good, this place comes highly recommended from me.

Something you have to except in the Atlanta area from a popular restaurant which does not take reservations, if you arrive at dinner time you will have to wait to be seated between 30 to 60 minutes. I was trully suprised, they had a girl walking around where we waited taking drink orders, now that service. How could we complain!! Once we where seated the service was friendly and the seafood was Excellent. We know what we where going for, which was good fresh seafood, hole in the wall ambience and service to match. It reminded me of a Great hole in the wall on Cape Code. The Alaskan King Crab legs are out of this world. This is Great, Fresh seafood, not Red lobster, If you don't know the difference so sorry. We truly enjoyed ourselves and we'll be back!! Bravo for being who your are Spondivits!!

Wait was too long. Staff seemed indifferent. Seafood was overcooked, chewy and dry. Extremely overpriced. Atmospere is cluttered and loud. The clam chowder that some rave about tasted bland. You would do better to eat Progressive! I've had better lobster at Outback Steakhouse, and for half the price! Will not return...EVER

I went with friends this weekend to Spondivits. It was ablsolutely the best seafood I've had in Atlanta. The atmosphere is very laid back and you feel like you are on the beach. I had a Lobster Bucket and it's the first time in my life I actually got full on lobster. The garlic butter was great as well. For the amount of lobster that I got, I felt that the price was more than reasonable. It's not cheap, but well worth the expense. If you love lobster - you've got to try it.

Recommended by the WELLESLEY INNS clerk, we visited SPONDIVITS on a Thurseday evening. It was jam packed. After a 30 minute wait, we had a table. The seafood is absolutely outstanding. Customer service was extremely average and value is nil. Hostess automatically included the tip when she brought the bill. I spent over 100 bucks on 2 adults and 2 little ones. We (Wife & I) still considered the money well spent and would visit SPONDIVITS again.

My mother and I decided to try Spondivits in hope of a good lunch, but were immensely disappointed. After we were seated, it took fiveteen minutes for the waitress to take our order. I ordered wings with ranch, and my mother ordered a salad. The waitress brought me bleu cheese dressing instead, and I told her it was not ranch. She rudely insisted that it was, but brought me some more dressing that still tasted like bleu cheese. She then told me that they made their dressings by hand (obviously to impress me) and that it would taste differently than "regular" dressings. I then asked her for another Coca-Cola. It took her at least 10 minutes to complete this simple task. To top it all off, the bill was an outreagous price of $27.00 which made us even more unimpressed. The whole lunch was a complete waste of our money.

My boyfriend and I went to Spondivits by the airport on the 12th. We ordered, ate, and decided to get a to go box for our leftover food. The waitress came to our table, and reached for or plates,we asked her to get it to go, she said ok. Next thing we know we see her throwing our food out at the bar. She comes back with our check. amd we tell her that we wanted the food to go.She tells us, that she didn't hear us, she just heard us ask for the check. She tells us that the music was too loud for her to hear us when we asked for the to go box. And that was that, no apology, no anything. We spent $35 on two shrimp baskets and a lemonade. The food was good but definitely not worth the price. And the service was horrible.

Thought we were in for a real treat after having the Chowder, which was delicious. Main courses were not good at all. I had surf and turf, which was OK at best. The other main course was a bucket of lobster tail. They tasted so bad that we didn't eat them. We let the manager know. He didn't seem very concerned, and went ahead and charged us for them anyway. I Don't think I'll ever go back. Our waitress left for the day about the time the food showed up....service pretty much stunk after that.

Its absolutly astonishing! You can't find better chowder anywhere . . . including in New England! I don't know Chef Glenn does it and don't much care. Just . . .BRING IT ON BABY! King Neptune dosen't eat this good. Its a perfect neighborhood bar - worth the drive from anywhere. I've been to both locations and that's true for either one of them!

Make sure you stop by before you see Buffett!

Pros: Clam Chowder, Any Seafood Bucket, The Service

Cons: not enough locations

Spondivits has become a must-stop for me on the way home from Hartsfield International. The food's so good, it almost makes me wish I lived on the Southside. There's nothing too fancy here, just basic seafood like oysters on the half shell and boiled crab legs, but they do it so well! The service is extremely friendly as well.
