Amazing atmosphere. Over looking Oakland cemetary. Distinctive food. Good beer selection. Great staff. Just flat out an experience that I still remember to this day.

This is not an every day bar, atleast not in my opinion, but the atmosphere alone will draw you back here many many times.

The food was incredible and you get heardy portions for the prices you pay.

The wait staff will also never let your beer be empty. Regardless of their hussle and bussle, They do an exceptional job.

The selection is good but could use some updating. Add about 5 new beers or so per every 6 months and expand peoples choices would be my desire.

A friend took me there for lunch so we could catch up and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Atmosphere: I think most people come for the food first and the beer second, but it is clearly a popular place as there was a 15 minute wait for lunch on a Thursday. Very lively mix of people working coming in for a quick bite and pint and groups of family and friends.

Quality: I'm not sure if they have recently updated their lists from the previous reviews but I found several items on the list that piqued my interest. Including their bottled beer selection with local seasonals like Terrapin's Wake-n-Bake.

Service: Our tableside service was good, a few mistakes, but they were quickly corrected even before we had to point them out. The hostess was a little cold and somewhat disinterested in helping out. But we were seated without to much of a wait and everything from there went well.

Selection: Nothing mind blowing, but a very good and solid selection that should please everybody with something on the list. There were several seasonal and regional beers that I was pleasantly surprised to find on the lists.

Food: I thought the food was great; however, nearly everything is fried. But they take the standard, fried, southern fare and give it a twist. Like scallop or blackened shrimp tacos and where great.

Value: I thought for the quality, taste, and freshness of all the products I had that the pricing was very reasonable. I would happily go back.

Went here with friends on a Thursday evening.
It's in the new "Midtown West" area, which is a weird light industrial, hilly, concrete-filled area that has recently been peppered with new restaurants and apartment/condo buildings aimed at both new urbanites and Georgia Tech students. Still an "in-transition" kind of area.

6ft under is a basic place, lots of crap on the walls, kind of sports-bar-ish but without the sports. Looked like there was a sizeable rooftop deck. Mixed clientele.

Decent selection. Better than average for Atlanta, with maybe 20 or so on tap. Nothing really special, mostly macros, although they had a couple of good ones like DFH 90 minute.

Food was not really my cup of tea. Mostly fried fish. There were approximately two vegetarian things on the menu. Nothing even approaches the word "healthy," so don't go if you're not a fan of fried foods. A tad expensive for what it was. The okra and onion rings were both great though.

We had good service at our booth. Quite attentive.

Overall, this is not a beer destination, but it makes a fine stop if you're with non-beer friends.

This is the newer Westside location. Atomsphere is a recreation of a seaside fish house. Big bar area to the left of the entrance. There is also a roof deck to enjoy outdoor drinking/eating. Caveat on the rooftop deck: the wait to get up there, between Friday afternoon/evening to Sunday, can literally stretch into hours so the indoor dining area may be the better bet if going on a weekend.
Good quality and selection of beers. Probably 28 of the 30-ish taps are craft beer, with PBR and Guiness rounding out the tap list. Taps include: at least 1 offering from each of the North Georgia brewers (ABC, Sweetwater, Terrapin), Gordon, Brooklyn, Great Divide Titan IPA and more. Most draft beer is $4.75 with bottles about $1 less. Bottle list is mostly macros, don't recall anything of quality there. Beers are not served in frozen glasses and since most of their tap list is appropriate for pint glasses, that is usually how the beer is served. Beer knowledge from the staff can be lacking, but if you know what you want anyway, it doesn't really matter too much.
Service is quite good. Maybe not lightning fast, but effecient and pleasant. We went with a large group where the food was covered by the organizer and drinks were being paid for seperately, our server accomodated us without any rolled eyes or heavy sighs.
Food is outstanding IMO. Mostly seafood and all appears fresh and cooked properly. My favorite dish is the calamari tacos. They are supposed to have a great burger for the non-seafood eaters, but I've never had it. Good fried okra appetizer and great homemade potato chips. Prices are pretty reasonable for the type of food. Dinners range from about $10-30 per dish.
This is a great seafood spot in a landlocked city and should be a must visit if in the area. Both locations (the other is in Grant Park and is actually moving about a block away soon) are popular spots, so they can be pretty crowded on weekends.
