Mother's DayAntebellum made it a great Mother's Day for a wonderful 90 year old Southern lady. A bit of a drive from Roswell - but well worth it. The brunch buffet was excellent - everything was regularly "refreshed". The staff was extremely helpful and cooperative.. Antebellum has been bookmarked for a return visit.
GBM5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time, asWe had a wonderful time, as usual. We missed the braised shortribs but understand it is summer and the menu is a bit lighter. The rib eye was very good.
Hope to see some additional seafood for the summer months.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNice surprise hidden in small town!We enjoyed the delicate favors of the unique entrees offered. I felt appreciated when presented with wonderfully plated foods that were full flavored and had class. It was the first time I've been presented with a plate that could have been given to a food network judge.
I recommend Antebellum for those that enjoy new taste and styles of cooking.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FindWe had a great anniversary dinner at Antebellum. The food, service and ambience are top-notch! It is a must try, and you will definitely return.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThursday At AntebellumMy wife and I had heard the fried chicken at Antebellum was special, so we went on Thursday to check it out. That is the special on Thursdays. Well, we were in for a treat. We continue to be amazed at how Nicholas can take deeply traditional southern dishes and improve on them unbelievably. The chicken was juicy, tender, exceedingly flavorful and generous. Someone else's chicken says it is 'finder licking good' but Nicholas has proven that to be true with his. I will go back on many Thursdays to have this again. I matched that with a Kungfu Girl Riesling and found that to be a worthy wine with the chicken. It was the chef choice for a wine to match. Also had Nicholas's grilled okra. I love okra and this did not disappoint.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for Sunday BrunchFour of us went for Sunday Brunch, and the food and service were very good. We especially enjoyed the setting in an old house converted to a restaurant. While there noticed several groups that were having Brunch there also. We were there at 10am when it opened and the placed filled quickly, so I would recommend having reservations to avoid a long wait for a table.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience and foodAs always, great food and a great experience. This was my first Sunday Brunch and it was incredible. Fresh ingredients and a creative menu makes this place one not to miss!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant. Look forwardGreat restaurant. Look forward to eating there again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first visit toThis was the first visit to the restaurant. One of my neighbors mentioned it and we wanted to try. Heard good things about the restaurant. It was, to me, a gourmet country menu, and it was very good. Didn't eat the carb items.....like the grits, and not sure what was in the fried green tomatoes, but passed on that too, but my friends definitely enjoyed. Very different and a great place to take people for the first time. Looking forward to a brunch sometime. The noise level was very high and it was difficult to hear each other talk. One of the ladies had to put her sun glasses on until the sunset was over with as there was nothing to soften the sun rays coming through the window. Overall, excellent time!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an exceptional restaurantThis is an exceptional restaurant for our neighborhoods! Food was very tasteful, presentation was beautiful, even the veggies are outstanding. Great food and a delightful staff!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food does notAs always the food does not disappoint! Our table split two salads and then had wonderful entrees : Shrimp and Grits (always a favorite), Scallops, Salmon and the Short Ribs (last of the season as they are changing to their summer menu).
Nick sent out some fabulous deserts as we were celebrating my Mother's 84 birthday. Nick always makes a point to round on the table to make sure everything is to the customer's satisfaction. We are so happy to have a fabulous, fine dining establishment in our neighborhood.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were soooo happy with ourWe were soooo happy with our dining experience. Great menu.

We will definitely be returning!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't Get Any Better Than ThisWe always thoroughly enjoy our dinners at Antebellum. Nicholas and Alison truly have a unique restaurant tucked away in Flowery Branch. It is worth the effort to try out this refreshing new style southern culinary extravaganza. I am so pleased with them after having been there many times. Dianna and I will continue to go and try all the new appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts that Nicholas puts on the menu. It is an exciting trip there every time. Vincent will ensure you have the meal of your dreams while there.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have eaten atMy wife and I have eaten at Antebellum's several times for dinner, brunch, or lunch, and the menu and quality, while good at the start, have gotten better each tme. The food is extraordinary; by far, the best example of 'nouveau Southern' food anywhere north of the Perimeter. (IMHO}There were really innovative combinations of flavors that all came off perfectly. Our waiter, Vincent, was a pleasure--knowledgable, courteous, friendly. and efficient.
This was a 'spur of the moment' Saturday dinner for date night with my wife, and we both were very happy with the choice. I heartily recommend this spot in old Flowery Branch--now, if someone would just open a nice, tapas bar with music, coffee and drinks to finish the evening!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat at a special restaurantWe eat at a special restaurant in Brookhaven... Didn't think one in Florwery Branch could compare but it did. Loved it and will be back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great service.Excellent food and great service. We have eaten here several times since finding this little gem in the historic district of Flowery Branch. The food is excellent!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI have lost count of the numberI have lost count of the number of times we have visited Antebellum. Brunch and dinner are equally amazing. This restaurant is truly our very favorite! Can't wait to visit again!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWednesday at AntebellumAnother great dining experience at Antebellum. Had the new Grilled bread with Benton Ham appetizer - it was absolutely one of the best appetizers you can get in a restaurant. Again, Nicholas has taken Southern ingredients and given them a California flair that 'makes your mouth' happy!!! Then we progressed to his unique hamburger that puts together a blend of ingredients which provides flavor sensations that open up a new respect for hamburgers. I hope to be able to come close at my house for the July 4th holiday. Wonderful dining awaits you at this restaurant. Ask for Vincent to be your server - he is awesome...4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was great. We actuallyThe staff was great. We actually had a fire scare while there. The staff brought us snacks outside while waiting. Then the food was served promptly after returning. The food is amazing and so delicious.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time weThis is the second time we have been and it was just as good as the first. The fried green tomatoe appetizer is amazing!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good and theFood was very good and the waiter was excellent. We were there on a Wednesday when they have a Jazz group and some specials on wine.
The value equation seems about right to me.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad to have antebellum in FB!Antebellum exceeded all of my expectations!
Fantastic responsibly grown & raised local food.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful meals, butAlways wonderful meals, but tonight the deserts were over the top!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service very good.Food and service very good. Somewhat pricey for a regular Thursday night dinner. We spent $126 including tip for 1 appetizer, 2 entrees(salmon and scallops), 1 cocktail, 2 glasses of wine and 1 dessert. Maybe a special occasion would be more appropriate. However, I am sure that they want to attract a regular dinner clientele in Flowery Branch. They did have a nightly special of a complete fried chicken dinner, but I do not know the price.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the idea of a restaurantI loved the idea of a restaurant being in a house like setting. The waiter gave us impeccable service and the food prepared by a chef was amazing.
I would highly recommend putting this restaurant on your "to do" list!!
Being that it is in an old southern house (part of its charm) does create the noise level to be a bit louder than you might expect.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this place and can'tWe love this place and can't wait to eat outside on the front porch when it warms up a bit more.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAntebellum....a Gem to be enjoyed..Antebellum is truly a gem....great expereince...delectable entrees with great service....a memorable evening as always. We try different entrees at each visit and have yet to be disappointed. Thank you, Antebellum. You are the BEST!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I were quite surprisedMy wife and I were quite surprised how good the food was in this small town. We will return with friends shortly.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWine and Steak at its BestAnother great dining experience at Antebellum. I went to try the Sweet Corn Soup and was not disappointed. What I had for dinner that caught me by surprise was the steak entree. I wanted a Cab for wine and determined that only the Justin Isosceles would do. However, that can only be truly enjoyed with a medium rare steak. I ordered the beef tenderloin medium rare to go with this great wine. I was blown away by the steak. Perfectly prepared without an overload of spices - which many restaurants tend to do with their steaks. I almost never order steak in a restaurant because of the over seasoning that occurs. Did not happen at Antebellum. It was absolutely wonderful and complemented the wine perfectly!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
