The Optimist

914 Howell Mill Rd.
Atlanta, GA 30318

Tucked in an old ham-aging house on the Westside, The Optimist brings the seaside to landlocked Atlantans. From smoked fish chowder to fresh oysters from the Alabama coast, guests of The Optimist return for its high-quality, sustainable seafood. Dishes like the Lobster Roll will transport you straight to a fish camp on the coast.
