    I met 4 girlfriends here for their Thursday night fried chicken night. It was, as usual, amazing! How they get it crisp but not the least bit greasy is mystifying. Great drinks. Good service. This is one of our go to restaurants.

    We have been dining at Antebullum for a couple years now, and have written several reviews recommending it to one and all. It is truly a gem. The food, the owners, and the staff are all top shelf in our opinion. We will soon be leaving the F Branch area to return to family up north. Although there are many fine restaurants there, we know we will never find a place quite like Antebellum again. If you have never been to Antebellum, do yourself a favor ang go.

    Entrées of salmon, lamb, chicken and shrimp were excellent in both presentation and taste and served hot and quickly. The food was prepared with a combination of flavors and senses; sweet, savory, crunchy, smooth that made for a delightful experience. Our waiter was very pleasant and polite but not at all intrusive. The wine was wonderful (An Australian white). Dessert was yummy cobbler and carrot cake, and the coffee was hot. We had requested a quieter area when making the reservation, so we were sat in a room off of the main dining room that only had 3 tables. It was still noisy, but we could carry on a conversation without too much struggle.

    We had to visit Antebellum before we headed to Europe for 11 days. Went on Thursday July 24th and had a spectacular dinner. Great beef tenderloin that was prepared to perfection. Washed it down with an Ehlers Cabernet Sauvignon that was just as wonderful. Got us in the vacation mood that evening. I've come to the conclusion that Nicholas is a culinary genius!!!

The food is amazing and the wine went perfectly. Tom playing jazz on his guitar was a great overall highlight. Hands down one of the best nights! Thank you!

    Antebellum was close to home (Suwanee) and the food and wine were excellent. The fried green tomatoes, delicious! I had the salmon and it was amazing. My husband was a little jealous because, although his lamb was cooked perfectly, my salmon was just a little bit better. I tasted his lamb and the side dish with it was wonderful. I woke up the next morning thinking of how delicious everything was The bartender and waiter were extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Overall, everything was perfect. The only thing that I'm wondering about is if they change the menu seasonally because there were only about five choices for entrees and apps. I'm dying to go back, but worry that I might get tired of the same dishes!

    Went to Antebellum with our son and daughter-in-law. She is a rabid salmon fan and we've been talking about Nicholas's salmon dish. I don't ever order salmon in any other restaurant, but have now done so at Antebellum several times. It is delicious. She did order the salmon dish and was blown away. She loved it!! Our son was impressed by everything we had that Friday night. They are from northern Kentucky so don't have access but only rarely - when they visit. They said they would be regulars if they lived here. Great job Nicholas, Allison and Vincent. Another great evening at Antebellum!

    My husband and I had a great meal - We tried two appetizers - the fried green tomatoes and the pimento cheese toast. They were both great and I would order them again. Wished there had been more of the fried green tomatoes in the serving. We had two different salads and they too were both delicious - the Ceasar and the salad with apples and goat cheese. For our entrees my husband had shrimp and grits and I had the tenderloin. I thought his shrimp and grits were better than my dish. I was not too crazy about the potatoes or the okra. But it was still good. Some bread would have been nice - maybe a variety in a basket like Chops serves. Overall - everything was delicious. It would be too unusual (fancy) for my kids tastes though

    We went to Antibellum for the first time a few days ago for our anniversary. The restaurant is located in an old house with a wide, wrap-around veranda. The food is fresh from the farm. Our waiter, Josh was knowledgable and very helpful. There was a jazz duo playing that night. They gave just the right amount of atmosphere to complete the setting. We enjoyed Vidalia Onion Soup and Fried Green Tomatoes with Bacon Jam as appetizers. I had Shrimp & Cheddar Grits, husband had Lamb. All were superb. Were really enjoyed our special day that was made all the more special by dining at Antebellum. We will be going here again.

    We went because a friend had told us about the place. First impression was I thought we were at someone's house. When we went inside it was a cute well put together restaurant. Our server Vincent was great very friendly and if we wanted something had it immediately. The food was outstanding and since it was our anniversary he brought us complimentary dessert and champaign I was very impressed and we will be returning with our friends

We paired wine over the phone and had it all perfectly executed in now time!!! The food was creativ, delicious and can easily hold up to all the fancy food temples in downtown Atlanta. Just 35 minutes away this is going to be our new dating place ! And the service is outstanding too. Giddi up Atlanta, a new chef comes to town !

    Small venue but exceptional everything. Great UNIQUE food, Gourmet Southern. I am picky but have loved everything I have ordered and would be willing to try any choice even if I had not traditionally liked the ingredients in the past. Prices are equal to the quality and freshness of the food. Many ingredients sourced locally. Atmosphere is subdued and calming. Gem in my home town but worth traveling to.

    Just a short walk from the emerald green waters of Lake Lanier, tucked away behind Flowery Branch's scenic town center near the classic railroad and nestled behind a wrap-around porch and a garden wall of beautiful bamboo sits metro Atlanta's greatest hidden gem: Antebellum. Check out the restaurant's terrific website for details but the combination of unique entrees (the salmon and halibut were as good as we have had anywhere in the country!) combined with creative sauces and fresh veggies make this place the best restaurant on Atlanta's (far) north side. You will not be disappointed with Antebellum--it's fabulous!

    This was my third time at Antebellum and it has remained flawless in execution. The staff is excellent, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. The food is impeccable. Every dish, appetizers to desserts, is prepared and presented with great skill. The flavors and tastes are never jarring but wonderfully surprising (e.g. smoked ice cream). The bar is fairly well stocked with refreshing cocktails, good craft beer, and fine wines. Even the coffee is really good. Antebellum holds its own and then some with fine dining in Decatur and downtown Atlanta. Worth the drive to Flowery Branch.

    This restaurant did a fine job of preparing and serving a delicious and well-balanced meal in a lovely presentation. The service was excellent. The ambiance was perfect - an old home beautifully renovated which was very comfortable. It became a bit noisy after it filled up at dinner time as there is little to absorb the chatter sounds. The hardwood floors, while lovely, did nothing to dampen the sound. We can't wait to return and will often.
