Where I live, there are a lot of great restaurants but as of lately, I have been really craving seafood and particularly crab legs. Yes, we have the regular seafood chain restaurants but sometimes you just want something really authentic, seasoned and just down right good! Well, I found just the right place that I wanted to tell you guys about! There is a new family-owned restaurant located 5 minutes from the airport called, Leila’s Land & Sea and now I can go there to get the best crab legs in town!
Her husband Perry owns and operates the restaurant in Atlanta along with her brother David who is also the head Chef. I met up with the beautiful Leila over the weekend and she was so excited about the new take-out seafood place. You can sit down and eat but its really a take-out spot that you can walk in and order or place your order over the phone and pick up.
Everything on the menu looked really good but I finally decided on the Alaskan king crab legs, fried shrimp, fried tilapia and it also came with a hefty portion of red skinned potatoes, steamed broccoli and buttery corn on the cob! Leila scolded me and said, “oh no, you have to try the Dungeness crab too” its really good and meaty. So she ordered me up that too lol.
Her and her partner had the same sort of restaurant in Philly in her hometown. That restaurant was a huge success in Philly, so her husband Perry knew early on that it would be a success in Atlanta. Perry decided that ATL would be the next location because there is NOTHING like it here and he was right!
Top selling items on the menu. The Dungeness Crab, Alaskan King Crabs, shrimp, salmon and the seafood salad is to die for! Oh they also have a fish hoagie that they bragged about too. They do plan on expanding in a few years! They are thinking somewhere up North. So you guys if you live in the Camp Creek area, or planning on visiting Atlanta, you have to stop by and pick up some seafood from the scrumptious place! Its clean, full of friendly faces and the food is superb, tell em I sent yah!
