    I feel lucky to have such a well reviewed chef keep a restaurant in Hall County. The food was interesting and delicious. Great cocktails and wine, and the service was just right. A bit noisy because of all the wood in the place, but that was the only downfall. Really enjoyed ourselves.

    We recently found this restaurant listed in the AJC in the very good category. We wanted to give it a try as there are no restaurants in Lawrenceville offering Novelle Southern. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is located in the historic district of Flowery Branch in an old house. It is quite charming. The menu is limited but offers a variety of choices from meats to seafood. Everything is freshly made with local ingredients. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for others for a special occasion or just a nice evening meal during the weekday or weekend. We will return for another meal at Antebellum and look forward to it.

    If you want a place that has a great atmosphere in this house that makes you think it was in Gone With The Wind days and with servers who truly cater to your every need this is the place. The menu is small but very selective which enables the Chef/Owner to give you an experience of food that is difficult to find any where. Always a great evening and never disappointed.

    This is the third time this year we have eaten at Antebellum. All three times have been wonderful. The Shrimp and Grits are my favorite. We save this restaurant as a Special Occasion Place because it is a bit pricey but so well worth it.

    I'm not easily flattered when it comes to restaurants, but from the time I walked in the door, I was impressed with Antebellum. From the beautiful house to the mason jars on the table, the restaurant looks really great. The wait service was very knowledgable and helpful since this was our first time here. The drink menu had a varied selection (I had the New Fashioned, it was perfect) and I think there's something there for everyone. We didn't get an appetizer, but the cornbread with the green tomato spread was so good. I had the blackened chicken with green tomatoes and creamed corn. It was the best piece of chicken I've ever eaten. Perfectly cook. For dessert, we tried the coconut cake and the chocolate bread pudding. Both were amazing.

    I had the scallops and my wife had a roasted chicken dish. Both were seasoned and cooked to perfection. When I have scallops at other places, they are frozen and so over cooked that I might as well have had rubber erasers, but at Antebellum they were perfectly seared on the outside and just done inside. My wife's chicken dish was beautifully tender, juicy and delicious. Service was excellent. The staff was very attentive but not overbearing. Couldn't ask for a more pleasant experience.

    When we first dined at Antebellum over two years ago, we fell in love with the food; however, what impressed us just as much as the food was the incredible service. Good food is easier to find than outstanding and knowledgable servers. We keep returning to Antebellum because of the service we receive. Thank you, Paul and Vincent, for always making our dinner so enjoyable.

    Had a wonderful night at Antebellum. The new smoked salmon app was delicious. I also had the heirloom tomato salad and that was not so good. The tomato which should have been the star of the app especially at this time of year, was a bit mushy. I also prefer my radish to be sliced thin, not just chopped into halves or fourths. But the rest of our meal was outstanding as usual.

    We had dinner at Antebellum to celebrate our 21st anniversary. We have been meaning to visit this restaurant for some time since we live in the area. We found the restaurant quiet and inviting, menu varied and inspiring, the service outstanding and the food was delicious and very tastefully presented. As a cook, I believe in presentation. I have always felt that you eat with yours eyes first. The seared scallops were outstanding as well as the chicken dish that my wife ordered. We will definitely be returning to this venue.

    Went for our anniversary dinner. I had the tenderloin of beef shoulder over couscous with eggplant and goat cheese. It was absolutely delicious. An unusual combination of flavors; Moroccan with the Anglo-Saxon of the grilled beef and of course the grilled okra. Spouse had the chicken breast with buttermilk, creamed corn and goat cheese. She said it was delicious. The apps were good, lamb sausage and Vidalia onion soup. Dessert was inventive, cornbread cake, but not as good as it could have been. Lacking a cohesiveness of flavor and texture. The real strength of Antebellum is its soups and entrees, but all dishes are very good. All in all a wonderful meal. Relaxed atmosphere and service was impeccable.

    Went to Antebellum on the night before we headed out to SanDestin for a long Labor Day weekend. Couldn't have been better! Had the beef tenderloin in Nicholas's special way. It was fabulous!! I am always so impressed with the different ways Nicholas prepares this dish and it seems to get better with each new style. He is a culinary genius!! Great way to kick-off the long weekend.

    This little gem of a restaurant is located in a tiny town about 25 minutes north of our home. I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner celebration from a recommendation in our neighborhood. He loved it! I loved the charm, the clean feel of the décor, the excellent food starters/entrees (we had a difficult time choosing!), the prompt service, even parking was not that difficult to find. We will be back for more!
