Diner Reviews
  • "Most of the food was delicious! Try the lobster mac 'n cheese, crab cakes, asparagus & stay away from the artichokes! The noise level from 8:00 to 9:30 was so loud that our table of four barely spoke until 9:30. Not the place to carry on any type of conversation...if you want to actually hear each other. The server was polite but inexperienced."

  • "Service was very good. Salad entry was not good. Pork chop was tasty, but very dry."

  • "I ordered a medium rare ribeye. My son ordered a rare ribeye. I was served the rare ribeye. My son was served a medium strip steak. The lobster mac and cheese cost $3 extra. I found one piece of lobster that was smaller than raisin. I will definitely not recommend this restaurant and won't returned. The waiter knew we were unhappy but offered no help."

  • "Didn't realize they moved....the new location is not as convenient but the food made up for it. Our waiter was attentive and on point. For a party of 10, there was no complaints of food (even from the kids). I'd recommend this place as it's a hidden jewel right now."

  • "This is a wonderful and much needed restaurant in East Cobb. The menu is varied. There should be something for everyone. Of course, the biscuits are a delicious bonus."

  • ">great appetizers; freshly made; quickly served > Their gumbo is one of my fave gumbos. > Very accommodating when husband and I share a meal as they divide among 2 plates in the kitchen and then serve the meal! > I do miss the old location as the noise (pitch) level was not as intense...maybe the dining room(s) arrangements made the difference. > Definitely will return!"

  • "Very good food, but very expensive. Be prepared to spend abt. $100 for iced tea, appetizer & dinner only, no drinks or desert."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "It seems some of the wait staff certainly needs to brush up on how to handle patrons...apparently our waitress was new and did not have a clue. Also, the clientele dining at the new location needs some Emily Post Training! One thing I will commend is the great service at the bar...The service level was a 5 out of 5."

  • "We have been to the Sunday Brunch at Chequer's in East Cobb several times and both food and service are exceptional. There is a wide variety of food from salads and fruits to eggs, breakfast foods, beef, chicken and fish as well as delicious desserts. Previously we had always gone for dinner and always enjoyed the food as well as the service. Brantley, Victoria and Donna are customer service oriented and do all that is possible to provide a nice dining experience. Jason and Shannon are excellent servers and pace the meal appropriately. We are thrilled to have them in East Cobb!"

  • "One filet overcooked...but we were comped on it and sent home with Another complete meal. A little ambiance was lost in the move, but then we are long time Chequers fans...spoiled. We had a great time. Our server was wonderful and you serve a good drink!"

  • "I was excited to see a location of Chequers open in East Cobb because I've enjoyed the Perimeter Mall location for years. This is not anything like that. I think a lot of it is the curse of East Cobb location - you can't find decent staff. It isn't that they aren't nice kids, they just don't know what they are doing. The food was just OK, the service was really amateur. For the price, it really just isn't worth it. 35$ for an entree delivered with all the flair you are used to seeing at Panera Bread."

  • "Our party of 4 went for the Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday and was very pleased with the food selection. The carver gave ample slices of both ham and roast beef, two options of eggs from the line and an offer of an omelet made to your tastes. My plate was clean and I went back for more-strangely enough one of my favorites was the lobster mac and cheese-very tasty. It stills looks very much like the old Houlihan's but it was the food I came for and that was not disappointing. It is upscale in terms of pricing but still I am looking forward to having dinner in the future."

  • "Happy to report that my wife and I had great meals at Chequers. This was my second visit since the business moved to East Cobb. We have always liked Chequers so were particularly happy to hear that they were relocating near my neighborhood. On my first visit to their new location, the restaurant had all the signs of a new opening - some things very good, some not so good. We really hoped they would get their act together so I am happy to report that last night's meal and service were terrific. The crusted Ahi Tuna and Copper River Salmon were both really well done (and head and shoulders above the meal we had at Ray's a couple weeks before). Chequers in higher end - $28 - $34 per plate, but chequers delivered against this benchmark."

  • "My friend and I celebrated her birthday by having dinner at your lovely restaurant. This was our first time coming after dining at Houlihans for many, many years. Your menu was delicious with lovely presentation. I plan to return especially for lunch since the evening menu is quite pricey! Many thanks for giving the dessert to my friend at no cost! Our server was outstanding and it was a nice gesture to have the yummy biscuits passed around. Congratulations and appreciation goes to your chef, also!!"

  • "roast beef on the carving table was excellent. Chequer's always has a large variety of food offerings, both breakfast and lunch foods. Our server, Fernanda, was very attentive. She kept our drinks fresh and removed used plates. Very friendly and attentive. Brantley, the manager, also visited our table to insure that we found everything and that there were no issues. The food, service and atmosphere are always outstanding at Chequer's."

  • "Went to this place for the first time Saturday. Found the interior to be extremely dark and not very inviting. Food was good, service too. but could use a interior redesign. It is located in a former Houlihan's and it feels like I was still in the old restaurant."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The restaurant was nice and the food was very good. The problem is it is soooo cold in there and if you are not a very fast eater your food is ice cold before you are one third of the way finished. I have experienced this at several restaurants and I think it hurts their good cooking. I do not enjoy freezing while I am eating or eating cold food. I had food left over and offered it to my brother but he wouldn't eat it because it was cold (same with my nephew). I know they have to keep the kitchen cold but it is really getting to be ridiculous out in the eating area. I had on long sleeves, long pants, a sweater over that and was VERY sorry I wore sandals!!!"

  • "Bernadette was great. She made our dining experience very enjoyable. Love that Chequers has moved closer in East Cobb. Pretzel crusted trout - the crust had large pieces of pretzel which made it a little dry to the taste when chewing. Lobster rolls - too much mayo. Overall thought everything was good."

  • "Ordered wine by the glass, took over 15 mins to return, including 12 mins of the server being "absent" only to come back to blame delay on the bar. Wanted the Seafood Platter sized for 2-3 people; server "didn't know" how big it was. To avoid another wait we ordered anyway. It had exactly 2 king grab legs (sawed in half lengthwise), 2 lobster claws, 8 oysters, 6 shrimp; all bland! We expected much much more for $55. Ordered a fish entree as soon as platter arrived, fish was grilled nicely and the side was very well done also. Dessert was really tasty but that's no surprise or accomplishment. Server was friendly when around, but was simply "absent" in long periods throughout visit. I would warn about our experience but might try again."

  • "Even though Christopher took very good care of us, we were disappointed with our dinner. When Chequers was at the Perimeter, it was one of our favorite spots. Our dinner consisted of the grouper (really nothing special), the grilled artichoke (leaves were hardly edible), and a very bland slaw. How could things have changed with the food quality in the move to East Cobb? The decor, though, is lovely and sophisicated."

  • "I was sad to see Houlihan's go, but Chequers is a welcome addition to East Cobb. Food was fantastic! Server was very helpful and knowledgeable. Chequers is definitely one of my new local favs."

  • "Chequers is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I have been eating there for 30 years. My friend and I used to alternate restaurants since we live and work on opposite sides of town but since the move we've made Chequers our once a month meeting place. The food is always good even when they get away from their seafood specialities."

  • "Hearing of the move of Chequers to East Cobb, we made an online reservation for our party of 6. A busy night but our table was ready and we were greeted by proprietor Brantley Smith in the familiar Tiffany-lamp Craftsman style interior. The wine selection was broad and we found a favorite which paired well with the Shared Sampler, ample for 6-8 diners. For entrees, we chose 4 steak, 2 salmon dishes. Our server Sophie pointed out the Alaskan sockeye-only available through this season. One of the best we've ever had along with each side--from Yukon Gold potatoes to fine green beans, perfectly cooked, large portions. Head server, Tony, checked on our table and sent dessert--handcrafted sorbet and Chocolate Velvet Cake. Perfection."

  • "The new East Cobb Chequers Restaurant was our choice to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. We were surprised by the crowd as well as the ambiance on a Thursday evening. The noise level was energetic. We were seated quickly and cheerfully greeted by our server. Chequers menu has many fine offerings, with an above average wine list. However, we found both somewhat expensive. The calamari appetizer was delicious, as was the plank salmon entrees we both chose. However, we were disappointed when our entrees came, no one had appeared to clean off the numerous bread and appetizer plates which crowded our small table. An awkward situation. Our complimentary anniversary dessert put a fitting end to an awesome evening."

  • "We have been loyal patrons of Chequers in the Perimeter Mall area for more than 23 years and greatly anticipated the relocation of the restaurant to E. Cobb, which is even closer to our home than the previous spot. If you have never been to Chequers, you will be amazed at the wonderful food and professional waitstaff you will encounter there. If you are previous patrons of Chequers, you will be in awe of the huge and beautiful new bar, and overall rich-looking "clubby" look of the new site. No question that the new property is drop dead gorgeous, but the food, drinks and service will have you coming back time and again. Congratulations on a wonderfully successful relocation, Chequers!"

  • "After reading multiple mixed reviews we were skeptical about what we would find. The service was fantastic and on point and the food really fresh and fabulous. It is on the more expensive side (about $40-$50 a person with everything) but well worth the price. We came with a party of six and had scallops, shrimp, crab cakes & the trout and we let everyone sample, all was great. The mashed potatoes were an added bonus. Our waitress was kind, quick and easy to adjust anything we needed. Would highly recommend. And we are thrilled to have a great steakhouse/seafood spot preventing us from driving to dunwoody all the time."
