These five local haunts are serving up fresh lobster in dishes you’ll miss once they’re gone.

1. The Tavern at AtlasThe St. Regis Atlanta’s resident restaurant’s recent addition, The Tavern at Atlas, has made this Buckhead spot one of Atlanta’s most flocked-to eateries. Taking residence just inside the restaurant’s swanky entrance, this charming nook is perfect to take a seat just before cocktail hour or after a big night out. Dive fork first into the delicious petit lobster pot pie, which is just enough to wish the dish was a little big bigger. 88 W. Paces Ferry Road NW, 404.600.6471

2. Atlanta Fish Market This Buckhead Life Restaurant Group eatery knows a good catch when they see one. Opt for the famous fresh Maine lobster roll served on a buttered and toasted New England bun and Maryland fries. This rich dish is worth skipping lunch for! 264 Pharr Road NE, 404.262.3165

3. Aria Sit a spell in the gorgeous Buckhead restaurant that boasts a menu as creative and appealing as its new interiors. Try the butter braised lobster with truffle potatoes and broccoli mousseline for a meal you will never forget. 405 E. Paces Ferry Road NE, 404.233.7673

4. BonesAlways classic, Bones’ chops are best when paired with a Maine lobster tail, so be sure to come hungry, and you’ll leave stuffed—and satisfied. 3130 Piedmont Road NE, 404.237.2663

5. The Palm Restaurant Famous for its caricature-covered walls and signature dishes, The Palm is one of Atlanta’s favorite places for a fun night on the town. If you’re up to it, order up the resto’s signature surf ‘n’ turf. If you’re just coming in for a quality lobster, go for the house specialty: a tender and succulent premium lobster for Nova Scotia.
