I finally got around to visiting Wahoo Grill today for lunch. We were seated in the pretty, airy back area which I found very pleasant. The menu seemed a little ordinary to warrant the upscale prices, but the burger I ordered, which came with a smattering of overcooked fries, was very good. The service, however, was not good at all. Most of the wait staff appeared to be more interested in chatting with each other than attending to the diners. When we finally told one of them we were ready to order, she said she would go get our server. When our server arrived, she made it a point to mention that we had apparently confused the other server with her. I don't generally go to a restaurant to be embarrassed by the staff, but whatever. The general inattentiveness continued for the rest of the meal. I would expect any somewhat upscale restaurant to train their wait staff much better than this. Considering the hype, I expected more.

Pam the owner accommodated about 30 of us from The Atlanta Running Meetup a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday morning for brunch. I made reservations with her about a week before, and we couldn't have asked for better service. The food was fantastic, and the staff were professional and courteous. At one point Pam came over to our tables and asked if the temperature in the room was comfortable for us. Pam takes a great deal of pride in what she does, and it certainly shows. I highly recommend it.

We dined at Wahoo for the first time this weekend and had the brunch buffet. The food was great and not your ordinary brunch fare. We especially enjoyed the shrimp and grits. The service was wonderful. We'll be back!

My father and I meet for dinner every week and this is our favorite place. It would also make for a great date spot. The atmosphere is beautiful, and I always feel relaxed and want to order a glass of wine right when I get there. (I've never been on Saturday but it's great during the week!) Kid-friendly: I sometimes bring my 9 month old son and we sit in the outdoor part. Food: The food is exquisite; I've never disliked anything I've gotten there- the calamari and potato cakes are both scrumptious! My salmon is always cooked just as I ask and the rainbow trout is great too. My husband likes the shrimp and grits and my father the parmesan-encrusted chicken. Service: I only put 4 stars because the service is hit or kinda-hit. There is this one server there, I think her name is Elizabeth and she is great- not in your face or overly bouncy but is good about checking on drinks and dirty dishes. The other servers we've had haven't been above average. However, we always leave at least a 15% tip so it's never been undersirable! If you live in Decatur or nearby, definitely give this place a shot. I guarantee a pleasant dining experience.

Wahoo used to be spectacular. The quality of their food has dramatically declined as of summer 2009. We've tried it twice in the past 2 months. The food was lukewarm, dry and over-cooked. Service was slow. We probably won't go back.

My wife and I walk to Wahoo whenever we feel like having a nice, but not super-expensive night out, and it never disappoints! The fish is wonderful, and so is everything else we've tried there, honestly. Be sure to look for their coupons in Savvy Shopper.

I had the most delicious steak sandwich and bread pudding with whisky sauce. It's a good place when you want that upscale experience. I usually go to cheap holes in the wall with good food. This is a little pricier, but it is pretty, and has seriously good food.

Live just a mile from here (for only 2 months) and have wanted to try it out. WOW! I am very very very pleased. The atmosphere is great, our waitress was so nice/helpful/out of her way friendly (wish I remembered her name). We sat "almost outside"-however, I think inside, almost out or out under the covered awning would all be a nice experience. We had the calamari and polenta cake for appetizers- both outstanding, I had the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna with seaweed salad and mashed potatoes- I wanted seconds- it was unbelievable!! In fact, I would go back tonight if I could!! Prices for entrees $14-23. Appetizers were a bit over prized ($10) for the amount you get ...but it was all so good I can hardly complain. This place is worth going too, even to just sit at the bar!!!

The restaurant was bustling at prime time on a rainy Saturday evening. Interesting crowd and nicely done dining area with an open kitchen. The hostess indicated a 30 minute wait so we had a nice glass of wine and chatted with the friendly and helpful bartender. After 1 hour and 20 minutes we gave up on the table and ordered dinner at the bar. It was quite crowded so not the optimal place for a meal but we were making the best of it. I had the wahoo which was dry and tasteless - not good for a signature dish. My companion had seared tuna. While the tuna was good but unremarkable, the sides of seaweed salad and mashed potatoes made for a strange pairing. Coconut cake (brought in from Southern Sweets) was delicious. Overall the food left much to be desired.

We had the fillet, ahi tuna and a bottle of wine. Their was a eclectic crowd. The lighting was low and the atmosphere was good. Our waitress was upbeat, polite and helpful. I recommend you give it a try.

I must say that the dining experience is top notch. Not over the top presentations or prices and the food quality is very high. Great service all around makes this our new favorite restaurant.

Ate there recently with friends and had great pasta special. Friends had tuna and raved about it and the brussel sprouts! We love the outdoor patio year round.

Try the wahoo, it is great! Very cozy restaurant and can feel a bit crowded when it is full. Patio is great in good weather, but can be cold or hot depending on how close to the portable heaters you are. Very good food at a decent price.

My husband and I tried this place for the first time last weekend. I cannot think of one single complaint, the food was unreal, service was excellent and atmosphere was perfect. We had a great time and will definitely return!
