    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Blue Ridge Grill gave my husband and I a romantic get a way for the evening. Our table was decorated and the menus had "Happy Anniversary" printed on each one. The staff was warm and friendly, as well as, the setting. We enjoyed each course of our meal and didn't feel hurried. This is very important to us as we have a 15 and 13 year old teenagers who run us ragged. I had the duck breast and my husband had the flounder each meal was wonderful and full of flavor. If you are looking for a romantic evening or one with the family this is the place to go.

    My husband and I had an absolutely perfect evening, thanks to the great team at the Blue Ridge Grill. Our server was fantastic, explaining the specials, offering suggestions, and pacing things in just the right way. Our food was fantastic, and the whipped potatoes are so sinfully delicious they deserve a special note. The restaurant feels luxurious and comfortable, and everything seems done with care. I look forward to returning very soon!

    The Blue Ridge Grill is consistently a high quality dinning experience. I have been enjoying their food, atmosphere and great people for almost 20 years. You will feel like you have been transported to the mountains. The porch is a wonderful place to gather with friends for drink. For lunch, check out the Lobster BLT. For a main course at dinner, the Trout topped with Arugula is my favorite. There is also a nice private dinning room downstairs which is perfect for a special event.

    They chill their red wine....can you imagine? Horrible!!! Pinot Noir is served cold there and you are not informed until you are served. I travel quite a bit and drink wine all over the country and have never had my bottle of Pinot Noir served chilled. The waiter made it seem like this is the 'normal' and expected way to drink pinot....really? It ruined my and my guests meal. HORRIBLE!

    They went the extra mile for a birthday celebration-decorated the table, "Happy Birthday" notation on menu & complimentary baked Alaska- better than any I had in the state of Alaska & large enough for the 6 of us to share! Fantastic steaks, service & gourmet mac-n-cheese! Noise level was nice - could hear everyone is our party. Will definitely return!

    Dined on 9/24/2014
    From the moment we arrived at the restaurant, the staff warmly welcomed us and made us feel special. It was for my date's birthday, and they made a customized menu printed for her, decorated the table, etc. etc. The staff were all adults, not immature young ones, and knew customer service. Food was absolutely delicious. It was such a delightful experience. I've been to this restaurant several times, but it was exceptional. I highly highly recommend this restaurant for those who thought America had forgotten what customer service is.

    My husband and I are both CIA grads from Hyde Park N.Y. I found Blue Ridge Grill because of Alton Brown saying how good the fried pickle chips were but they were not on menu. So when we got there, of course I asked for pickles. They were great. but nothing compared to the braised short rib and the lamb. Could not have been better. My mouth waters when we think about it. Everything from the bartenders, the service, the ambience was EXceptional. Don't miss this restaurant. Oh, the clam chowder with crab was "Bam" Prices are what you would expect from a top line restaurant. Thanks Blue Ridge Grill for this wonderful dinner.

    Overall, this place just misses the mark. The menu is outdated and is not very exciting. The food was good but the menu is very limited, Service was excellent. Try the seared goat cheese appetizer. Beautiful place on the inside. The owner needs to freshen this place up from a food perspective. The warm bread is excellent.

    Went here to celebrate a 45 year service anniversary with a large company. Great service started with a call the day before. Welcomed and constantly addressed by name by all the staff. Food was excellent - I really enjoyed the lobster sandwich. Service was very attentive. Overall, the place was a little noisy, but never enough to stifle conversation. Our party of six had a great time.

    Met a friend for a drinks and dinner; as every time in my last 4 visits, the fish special was flounder. My friend had a scallops that he said were quite good. I had two appetizers, tuna tatar and a crab cake, chosen, in part, to "cut carbs". Crab cake was excellent. Tuna was perfectly acceptable but not my favorite, purely a matter of personal taste and not a criticism of the quality. Our server was great;

    I enjoyed Blue Ridge Grille with a former client who has become a friend. Our lunch was both business and personal, so the atmosphere that is less noisy than many go-to biz lunch spots was perfect. It's also great that there are enough food choices without being too many; you can make a choice and move on. Similarly, the servers are very professional; present enough that we felt well-tended without being interrupted. Too, this day our server picked up on the fact that my lunch companion was a semi-regular and had certain preferences and he catered to those well and effortlessly.

    After being stuck in Buckhead traffic for 90 minutes for a Normal 15 minute drive due to a movie at the governor's mansion at rush hour we arrived to a pleasant greeting and a great table. Started dinner with the hot smoked salmon and then the scallops. Nicely presented. Wine list has several good choices at various price points. Food is not cutting edge but is always up to a high standard.

    Seldom do you enjoy a dining experience that is excellent in all three required areas: ambience, food and service. From the efficient and courteous valet parking to the warm greeting at the host desk to the knowledgable and professional wait staff, you feel that your party is in great hands. The elegant lodge architecture and decor are a welcome respite from the urban hustle. You can't make a disappointing choice in the food selections. It's all wonderful. We have tried many of the seafood selections and they have all been delicious, and the selection of the day is always a great choice. If anyone in your party is celebrating a birthday, this is the place to dine. The staff goes way above and beyond the norm to make it memorable. Bravo!

    We were introduced to this restaurant a few years ago by a dear friend and have been going every time we come to Atlanta since. Normally we have excellent service, however this time we did NOT. Our waitress was terrible. She never checked on us. I had to find another waiter to bring us salad dressing. She made absolutely no suggestions and could not describe any of the specials. We were so disappointed because normally we have awesome service and love the staff. Definitely still a must eat place, however be warned that some of the staff does not provide the best experience.

    First visit and can't wait to return. The bar and patio area are among the best anywhere. Great drinks and snacks. Hard to find a reasonable quiet bar and this one is perfect. Filet was good, not the best, great flavor, not as tender as some. Sides Mac and cheese, asparagus, salads and dessert outstanding. Other entrees I saw looked fantastic and will likely try something else next time. Just loved the vibe and feel, adults, properly dressed, subdued inside, awesome service by experienced people. Can't ask for more.

    Blue Ridge Grill is by far the best restaurant we look forward to on our annual trade show visit. The staff, food, wine, ambiance is top notch and proves it to be a well managed organization that never fails to impress us. Our server Todd was stellar! We have come here the last 6 years when we visit Atlanta for the Show at the Galleria. It is by far our favorite restaurant and one we visit on our first night always. The service is always stellar and the food magnificent. This consistency year after year established this establishment as a first rate fine dining spot and one we will probably increase to two nites a week per popular vote!
