Terrapin Tap House
Concourse D, upper level
If you don’t have time to visit Terrapin’s beer lab near SunTrust Park, you can sip the fruits of its experimentation right here in the airport. The Athens, Ga.-based brewer offers signature selections like Luau Krunkles, an IPA with flavors of orange and guava, and Liquid Bliss, a chocolate-and-peanut butter porter. Round out your visit with bar food, like pulled pork barbecue nachos or turkey reuben sliders. The bar also features a separate smoking lounge with cigars and hookah.

Fresh Healthy Café
Concourse C, across from Gate 45
Looking for a quick dose of nutrition between flights? This Concourse C spot can whip you up a smoothie — including seasonal blends like coco avocado or pineapple creamsicle — or a freshly squeezed juice. For a more chewable meal, you can build your own protein bowl, or try a wrap, panini or salad, featuring creative combinations of fresh ingredients. The beach salad mixes fresh blueberries, avocado and hemp hearts, while the kale vegetarian wrap includes beets, hummus and cucumbers. Pro tip: Replace your layover coffee with a green lemonade for a sweet, nutrient-dense pick-me-up.

Buffalo Wild Wings
Concourse D upper level
If you can think of no better way to spend a layover than watching the Patriots while sipping a Sam Adams Lager, catching a Phillies game while nursing a Yeungling, or cheering on the Bills while devouring some Buffalo wings, then this is the stop for you. Plenty of big screen TVs line the walls and rotating beers are always on tap. The sizable food menu focuses on classic bar favorites like “Beefy Burgers,” chicken tenders, and salads. But, as the name implies, the wings are what you come here for. Slather your boneless or traditional style in one of 16 sauces and seasonings like lemon pepper, chipotle barbecue and jamming jalapeno.

Phillips Seafood
Concourse D, Centerpoint
Grab a seat at Phillip’s Seafood for a meal to satisfy any crustacean craving. The restaurant’s dedication to classics is evident in dishes like premium lump crab cake sandwiches, lobster rolls, and even an 8oz. grilled sirloin steak filet topped with gorgonzola crumbles. Start with a plate of salt & pepper calamari to dip into a sweet ‘n’ spicy pineapple chili sauce. If you’ve worked up an appetite, follow it with a hot bowl of creamy lobster ravioli and a side of buttery garlic bread. But be careful — one slice of the Bourbon Street Pecan Pie will make you want to skip your flight so you can come back tomorrow.
