McKendrick's Steakhouse - Perimeter Center
Everything about McKendrick'sEverything about McKendrick's is awesome from the attentive staff to the wonderful food and drinks. I travel extensively for work and McKendrick's is one of my all time favorite steakhouses.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food/service, but loud!I've been to this restaurant about five times now. The food and service are always great. The bar is fun, but always packed -- it's too small for a restaurant that draws a consistent crowd. The restaurant itself is always good, but the main dining area can get very loud -- conversation can be a challenge.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!Our second visit and it was just as good as the 1st time. Will return & refer!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMcKendrick's is one of the BEST!My husband took me here for Mother's Day. We were greeted by a very nice young man who Valet Parked our car (complimentary) . We were running late due to an interstate stoppage, but the hostess greeted us with a pleasant smile and a warm welcome. Our server (Antonio) was top notch. My Swordfish was tender and cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the Prime Rib, which was huge and done exactly as he had ordered. The Lobster Mashed Potatoes were creamy and topped with deliscious hunks of lobster meat. McKendrick's is a bit pricey, but well worth the dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService needs tweakingFood here is excellent without a doubt. Certainly expensive. Nice atmosphere. But the service needs tweaking. Several of the items we ordered were out and out forgotten. The waiter spilled my wife's water on my coat, which was forgiven, but then had to be asked to come back and fill her glass which remained empty for 15 minutes. Another example: we asked for coffee with our desert but it never came, and after we had finished our desert, we were ready for the check and didn't even mentioned it. Cheesecake is better with coffee.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMcKendricks is outstanding!Truly one of the best restaurants not only in Atlanta but the US. Everything we order, time again is always perfect! We just returned from a week in NYC, of dining, theater and shopping. Not one restaurant in NY approached the quality, the preparation, the service and especially the ambience ofvMcKendricks. If you enjoy steak...it is exceptionally tender, flavorful with mild char. Seafood, salads, sides are also great. The bartender really knows how to make a proper Manhattan or Martini... And the servers and staff are all excellent. Wines list is extensive, but by the glass offerings are also excellent. This is just a great dining experience and gets better with age!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING STEAKHOUSE!We are new to Atlanta area. A good friend introduced us to McKendrick's Steakhouse - we had an amazing dining experience at this restaurant the first time and the last 3 times we went back. The service is excellent. The food is incredibly delicious! All around, this is one of my very favorite restaurants - and we've been to many over the years and around the country.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for a group!We had a group of 10 and the service was great and as always the food was delicious! Loved the lobster bisque.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceFood was incredible! Robert provided terrific service. The restaurant manager stopped by to check on us. To top it off, the restaurant brought out a very nice complimentary dessert in honor of our anniversary.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a disappointment!We go to McKendrick's a few times a year, when I must have THE perfect steak! McKendrick's is well-known for their steaks, and I really admire a restaurant that can give me a medium-rare filet that is warm in the middle! On a recent visit I had the appetizer special: fried oysters (you must try them--delicious!), caesar salad, 8 oz filet, and two sides: garlic-parmesan french fries, roasted okra. Everything was wonderful. Service is impeccable, and it is a real delight to watch their attention to diners. Wine list was very good, and the bar makes excellent martinis. The only negative: The portions of the sides, meant to be shared, are really too big for two people; smaller options would be nice!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat high end restaurantGreat food and atmosphere. This is steakhouse but seafood is also good. Side items such as cream spinach and mushroom came with delicate and tasty cooking.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWork Anniversary LunchMcKendricks food is awesome. Great selection for lunch.Service was fast, friendly, and efficient.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe servers are very pushyThe servers are very pushy about purchasing additional sides. I found this odd for a high-end, business class restaurant.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome as always, thanksAwesome as always, thanks for the great dining experience!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary coupleThe food was delicious and very graciously served but somewhat overpriced. The noise level was high due to the number of groups around us. The Mater D (Mark) and our Waiter (Jeff) were both very gracious and excellent. We will return, but not frequently due to the cost and noise level. The food was delicious, but not twice as good as another place I know.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatest mistake ever!!!My boyfriend and I originally had reservations for Fogo de Chao, but they messed up our reservations and with a quick google search for a steakhouse McKendrick's popped up first. Within 5 minutes we had reservations for 30 minutes later and that was the greatest mistake a restaurant has ever made for me. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding, we will definately be dining at McKendrick's Steakhouse again. We had already dubbed Ruth's Chris as our place for a romantic dinner on date night but after the first 15 minutes at McKendrick's they had been replaced. This is a restaurant that everyone should experience at least once in life.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial nightTook my wife there for our 30th anniversary. Wanted someplace special. Food was great, service was great. I have been there many times but only the 2nd time for my wife. She loved it ! Wants to know when we can go again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCame for a birthday dinnerCame for a birthday dinner and everything was prepared perfectly. The steaks were delicious and the warm brownie cake acts adds was a work of art. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in a great steak in an equally outstanding atmosphere.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at the restaurant and we were celebrating our anniversary. The atmosphere was romantic and the dinner was delicious. Each item we had was perfect. The service was outstanding and the even gave us a nice surprise after dinner with special anniversary dessert. We will be back. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to have a fantastic meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe asked for a private areaWe asked for a private area to have a celebration with our party of 10, and they put us in the first table behind the hostess stand in the main traffic area. We had called weeks in advance and the hostess said that was the best they could do when we got there. (Very rude hostesses), also no imput from the manager to make it better.
I love the food and service (Paul was great), and it saved the experience since this is one of my favorites. But i would not recommend them for a party or celebration occasion.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTake your Clients Here!The team at McKendrick's treated my business clients incredibly well.. with excellent suggestions for shared appetizers and a tremendous (yet unintrusive) level of customer service. Oh... and the food was great as well!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, food and serviceAs always, food and service was superb. McKendrick's continues to be our favorite restaurant for a great dinner!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecialWe went to dinne to celebrate my sons birthday. He choose the restaurant and we were not dispappointed. the food was great, especially the steaks and mushrooms. We ordered drinks, tomatoe bisque and lobster bisque. The lobster bisque was very good with the special of the day, th etomatoe being just good. We all ordered steaks, ribeyes and KC cut. All were fabulous. The side dishes are huge so we shared. We ordered mushrooms, baked potato, asparugus, and escaloped potatoes. The mushrooms were fabulous with the other dishes being very good.
They did provide my son a birthday desert which he liked so mush that he hardly shared.
The only negative for McKendricks is it is expensive. With tip & tax we spent over $75 per person.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!! Service greatOutstanding!!! Service great and food exceptional. I travel around the country and eaten at may places but haven't had a better meal than at McKendricks.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the atmosphere and theLoved the atmosphere and the food. The environment was casual enought hat I didn't have to up, but at the same time the air was that of an incredibly upscale restaurant. The general manager continually checked up on me and even engaged me in regular conversation. The food recommendations were spot on and the wines were amazing.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe yet again found ourselvesWe yet again found ourselves celebrating a special family occasion at McKendrick's.
We were celebrating my son's 15th birthday and he is a fan of the restaurant! We were seated as promised in a nice banquette, and our favorite waiter, Dee, was a surprise. Salads were scrumptious. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the brussell sprouts were divine!
This place is in our opinion a tried and true favorite. Rarely have we ever had an issue with food or service, whether it be my wife and I for an intimate evening, or a group of over 25.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT NEIGHBORHOOD STEAK HOUSEMenu was varied w/great selection -- our waiter was exceptional & most knowledgable a out entire menu... Highly recommend this as a #1 choice for steaks!!! Also great for special occasion celebrations.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMcKendricks is a bit pricey,McKendricks is a bit pricey, and is therefore better suited to special occasions. I noticed, though, that I was one of fewer than a dozen women in a busy restaurant at 6:30 pm.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here and foundFirst time here and found it to be awesome. Our group was greeted warmly when we arrived and the service was impeccable. Antonio was one of the best Waiters I have ever had. Very friendly and all over our every need.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMthe service and food werethe service and food were very good. a very good place to celebrate special occasions.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks were excellent. ServiceSteaks were excellent. Service was excellent. Waiter was excellent. One drink, salad, steak, side dish, dessert and tip for $100 a head for our party of 4.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA great meal!We went to McKendricks for my birthday. Most of the staff were exceptionally friendly. The only one who was not was our waiter, but he wasn't rude, just not as friendly. I ordered the crab cocktail, the ribeye and the lobster mashed potatoes. I'll start with the potatoes. I've ordered these in other places and they come with tiny pieces of lobster that are almost impossible to identify. Not here. Here the potatoes were topped by large chunks of lobster and both parts were amazingly good. My ribeye was to die for, though too much food for me so we got to have leftovers too. My husband got the caprese salad, a fillet and the okra. The first two were very good (mine were better), the okra was ok, but you would have to really love okra.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoExcellent Food, if you have never had fried lobster you should try it absolutely wonderful, and one of the best steak houses in Atlanta. The mac & cheese is to die for.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints. One ofNever disappoints. One of ATlanta's better steak house with avery wide menu selection.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA great Easter experienceMcKendrick's never fails to please. A meal at McKendrick's is not just eating, but a dining experience. Their food is always delicious, well presented and a delight to eat. This Easter Sunday they had several wonderful specials that were not just delicious, but very reasonably priced.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I dined onMy husband and I dined on Filet Center Cut, New York Strip and Broccoli. The filet was cooked as requested which was a delight. The New York Strip had a lot of marbling and cooked as ordered. The Steamed Broccoli was fresh and not over cooked. We had appetizers and desert and were happy with our choices. Service was top notch. It was our first time dining at McKendrick's Steakhouse. I can’t say I am a big fan of charring the outside of steaks but overall we were not disappointed.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steak and fantasticExcellent steak and fantastic service. Overall very nice experience with attention to detail. Probably not an every weekend restaurant, but certainly something for special occasions and high-end business dinners.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the noise level wasWhile the noise level was uncomfortable until the crowd thinned out, the food was excellent, and our server was outstanding.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Staff were very welcomingThe Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The bartender was awesome. The food was good. The only problem I could see was the small portions. Other than nice a nice place with delicious food.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMcKendricks does not disappointTook my dad to McKendricks for his 80th birthday and they did not disappoint. Everything was excellent and more, especially the service and the wine list. As his birthday fell on Good Friday, we ate seafood, which was delicious. Our waiter brought a slice of their delicious ice cream cake with a candle for dad for dessert which was again, delicious. It was also very quiet there due to the holiday and that we dined early.
McKendricks is a wonderful restaurant. Why travel to Buckhead for Chops, The Palm or Bones when you have this gem in Dunwoody? It is at least comparable, if not better in every aspect. You won't be disappointed.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant. FoodExcellent restaurant. Food is always consistent and high quality. Service is outstanding. I dine here often for business. It is great a romantic dinner as well.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was very professionalOur waiter was very professional and aimed to please. I don't remember him ever telling me or my family, "no", and I like that. Especially paying that kind of money. The food was also fantastic!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite steakhouse inMy favorite steakhouse in the world. Just the best!!!!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness and Special Occasion WinThis steak-house is comparable to Ruth's Chris. The portions on their salads are a bit small but the steak and seafood is superb. The salted butter caramel bacon gelato is a bit strange but the key lime pie is amazing. This is great for business meetings as well as special occasions. The bar is always full of well dressed professionals and their wine list is quite extensive.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMRomance is in the AirOur server Paul was the best! I had just gotten engaged and he gave us the best seat in the house. The hostesses were so sweet when they found out about the engagement. The owner even came over to give us his personal congrads. The seafood was amazing and dessert was good too. I can't wait to go back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe New York Strip was cookedThe New York Strip was cooked to perfection! We made a reservation for 8:00 on a Thursday and we arrived at 7:57; we were seated immediately. The server was very knowledgable and friendly. I would highly recommend McKendrick's. It is definitely pricey so be prepared.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect blend of great staffPerfect blend of great staff paired with food that is always wonderful. Ambiance assisted in creating a pleasant business gathering. Thanks McKendrick's...3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery dependable good foodVery dependable good food and outstanding service. A great choice for dinner or lunch.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat alternative to chains!McKendrick's is a great alternative to chains. You can get a decent steak lots of places, but McKendrick's delivers more. The food is always terrific, but the people are a lot more like family. Most of the staff has been there forever and it is like they are welcoming you to their special place. I have lunch at McKendrick's often and it always is a great experience. My only complaint ever is that when the restaurant is full, it can be too loud to really converse with your table mates. On this visit, they were only about two-thirds full and it made a huge difference. Just enough noise that you could not hear conversations at other tables, and just quiet enough to really enjoy being with my own group. A perfect experience.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great dinner!Really amazing dry aged ribeye. On par with Rathbun Steak, actually very difficult to pick which is better. The sides were also delicious which I think is what differentiates between top steakhouses. The steak is going to be good, but how good are the sides... The mac and cheese was scrumptious with the browned cheese and nice salty rich cheese flavor. The garlic spinach was also very good, similar to Rathbun. Also had the grouper with Asian ginger soy sauce which was nice and not sweet. Great grill flavor on the fish too. All around a really solid meal. Better than Bones for sure when it comes to food, but service at Bones is better. Food usually wins over service though.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
