    If you like Southern Charm and Good food this is the place. From the oornbread to the dessert the food was excellent. There were 4 of us who had different entrees. The salmon was outstanding.My wife and friend had Shrimp and Grits. They said that they were some of the best they have had in any restaurant. I had the pork loin on a bed of blackeyed peas that were very impressive. The service on the other hand was a lot to be desired!. i hope it was not the waiter but that they were understaffed. I hope it was just a bad night and that they did not expect as many customers. We will still go back again for the food. Hopefully, they will have corrected their staff issue.

    My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Antebellum. This was our first visit to the restaurant and we were very impressed as soon as we stepped through the door. The staff was very attentive, and the food was incredible. We were very glad we took a chance on Antebellum and we plan on going back. If you have never dined at Antebellum please make the drive up to Flowery Branch. It is well worth it.

    It is a great choice for a special occasion. The quaint old house is an intimate setting for exquisite food and excellent service. The crab appetizer was delicous. The salmon entre was cooked to perfection and the sauce a perfect complement. They were wonderful about splitting a salad and even plated it for two without being asked. The wine list was good and reasonably priced. The complimentary champagne toast and desert was a nice touch for an anniversary celebration.

    Loved all the new menu items for autumn; everything was delicious and the service was perfect! My friend from Switzerland loves dining at Antebellum and your blueberry martinis. She had to purchase some blueberry vodka to take back with her because she can't find it anywhere in Europe! See you guys this weekend!!!

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    We have been here several times and always love it, but this time we were slightly disappointed. My husband and I were sat at a large table right in front of the front door, which may possibly have been the worst table in the house. I spent the evening freezing every time the front door opened. The food was still great, although not as amazing as it normally is, which may have been partially due to the fact that I was just not comfortable. Obviously this won't stop us from coming back but we will definitely be requesting a different seating arrangement next time!

    I can't begin to say how delightful our dinner was at Antebellum on the 6th of November. I had a new dish, cornmeal encrusted Port tenderloin. It was awesome!!! We started with the pimento bread appetizer and it was just as wonderful. This place is the best restaurant in the entire Atlanta area in my opinion. Will keep going back for more. The pork dish includes black-eyed peas that add to the vibrant flavor of the pork. What a great addition which keeps it southern, but with California notes as well. Very, very good...

    My wife and I went up to this area to pick a new standard poodle puppy and stayed over night so we could travel with the puppy by air in the morning. I did some research and found Antebellum. I read the write-ups and it seemed like a terrific place. we were not disappointed. the chef... just explodes with flavors you wouldn't think would go together but they do! and oh so well. the wines were excellent .... we had the prisoner by Oren Swift and it was priced well and a good value. the service was excellent and the place was busy a good sign that it is a good restaurant. I love places like this as it is a labor of love... you can tell when you walk in and all through the meal when so many come over to see if all is going well.

    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.

    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.
