    This place is OK, but 4.5 stars is way, way too high. Both the steaks and BBQ were good but not great, and the side dishes we had were fair at best. The black eyed peas were awful for a southern restaurant. Maybe they are catering to vegans on the sides, not sure, but not what I would expect with a steak or BBQ.

    My large party was served by Ben, and we had a lovely time. A good drink list, the wide variety of food choices, and their own parking lot made for a great evening. Also, on your birthday, they will give you a free dessert! Cowtippers is a pleasant restaurant with excellent service -- worth the experience.

    My 9 month old nephew and sister were in town and after a trip to the zoo, we needed a place for the family to meet for lunch. Another reviewer said it was good for families so I picked it. My parents are foodies, and even they enjoyed lunch. The menu has a lot of variety and everyone ordered easily. Service was great. Although we were not the target customer, everyone on staff was super nice and accommodating!!

    The best thing about this place is the service, very friendly and quick. Everything else is just ok, nothing special. The place was a little dirty and needs a new look. One plus was it is very gay friendly.

    My family and I met up with my sister's family this past Friday, 5-23-14, for lunch. We have an 11 month old and my sister's 3 kids are all under 9. Parking is great for families with SUVs. The waiter was extremely friendly and very nice, attentive, and patient with the children. He was very knowledgable about the menu and gave great recommendations. I had the GUAC burger and the guacamole is homemade and is excellent. Burger was awesome! Staff that were not working our table took the time to say hello. The atmosphere is colorful and the restaurant has really cool displays and pictures hung on the walls. Reminds me of downtown Asheville with a western feel. I would recommend this place to other families w/ small children. Will be back!

    Waiter was less than enthusiastic to serve. Never checked on our food or drink and even had to hunt him down for the check. Steak was overdone, Wrong entrée brought out to one at our table. "Signature" desert recommendation was red velvet cake. It was extremely dry with no taste - not even the frosting. Definitely not worth going back - a total waste of time and money.

    Good spot and lots of free parking. Nice patio if you want to sit outside. I think our server was new. When I asked her about what else comes on the burger she said "just what's listed"....it still came with tomato and pickles which I do not care for; pickle juice is the worst. Burgers are great but at almost $10 they are expensive. Management was very visable and stopped by our table twice to check.

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    My husband and I took two friends to Cowtippers for steaks on a Saturday night; I'm a longtime fan of Cowtippers as an alternative to super pricey steakhouses or chain restaurants. Our food was great as usual, but our service was sorely lacking. Our waiter barely came around between taking our order and bringing our checks, so we were waiting for new drinks (and we were willing to buy lots of drinks!) for some time. We asked the food runner if he could take our drink order when he brought our entrees, and he actually said to us "No I cannot, I'll send over your server," and then we waited maybe 10 more minutes for the server. That kind of thing would never happen at most restaurants, even if we had asked the wrong person for a drink.

    We have been dining at Cowtippers for years and it continues to be a favorite. The food is very good, great selection on the menu and the prices are actually reasonable for a very nice dinner. Casual and relaxed dining experience, which adds to the appeal. The service is always really good and the interior is funky and fun. If you have never tried this restaurant, then you should make a reservation and go. You wont be disappointed. A+

    The food was good and our waiter was extremely friendly. The atmosphere is quite warm and inviting (very friendly). Both the food and the drinks were UNBELIEVABLY slow coming out. The waiter told us it was the bartender's first night, so maybe it isn't always like that. Good thing we weren't in a hurry!

    I'm not sure this place knows what their theme is. While it is listed as a steakhouse, it looks like a BBQ joint, with some TVs like a sports bar and the menu options look like a bistro. We showed up on Superbowl night and it was dead. I guess the LBGT crowd, wasn't hanging out here, despite the in-your-face display of rainbow flags and advertisements. Confused yet? The owners must be.

    We were looking for a place close to the Atlanta Symphony Hall. We live in Gwinnett so we are not very familiar with the Downtown Atlanta scene. We did some research at opentable and found this restaurant. The customer service was fantastic. Our waitress went above and beyond as she knew it was our first time there. The food was great and both my wife and I agree the proces were NOT exhorbitant. All in all, we are very happy we decided to experiment and try a new place.

  • acceptable steak house
    pseawrightb
    Dined on 1/24/2014
    This is a clean restaurant with acceptable food. I ordered the filet and found it to be a bit fatty. Still, it was cooked correctly. One of my fellow diners who ordered the NY strip volunteered that she was pleased with her steak, but the other two who ordered this cut did not chime in. I suspect that she said this more out of a desire to make pleasant dinner conversation than out of a firm conviction in the steak's quality. I ordered a cheesecake, which tasted a lot like a slice of Cheesecake factory cheesecake that you might get at a Starbucks. In short, I found this restaurant to be acceptable. If you have a hankering for steak and are in the neighborhood, then you should go. I would not call Cowtippers destination dining.

    Cowtippers is a usually reliable standby restaurant that while not pushing the culinary envelope, delivers a decent meal at a decent price. Service is typically friendly and efficient. The crowd is a mixture of GBLT and neighborhood straights, and in the warmer months the patio can be a fun place to hang out, except for the occasional loud traffic emanating from Piedmont Road. The preparation of the food can be hit or miss, but they are very good about making it right if they missed it on the first try. Good place to drop in with friends when you don't want to deal with long lines and valet parking.

    We don't come to Cowtippers for haute cusine, trendy foods or romatic atmosphere. Cowippers is a semi-annual Atlanta dining spot when we have to work in Atlanta for more than a few days. We usually wait to dine here till the end out our stay when we are on fancy food burn out and we come here for the very, very relaxed atmsophere, it's diversity, some good old unpretentious comfort food that never let's us down. Great place for a drink, simple food and some laughs.

    There was a small stick found in my salad and they did not discount the salad from my tab. My wife got the filet mignon steak and it was cooked correctly but bland and with no flavor. I made reservations for 5:45 and was not seated until 6:30. The bar was not accommodating while we waited for a seat.
