We will be back soon.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMcKendrick's ReviewDuring my or our travels to Atlanta, we always stay in North Atlanta. McKendrick's is very convenient to our hotel. I search out quality "steak houses" and McKendrick's is definitely in the top three in the Metro Atlanta area. Expensive beef, but many other choices as well. Most of the servers are professionals and have been there for years. No kids working their way through school. No downsides to this restaurant.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Venue & FoodThis was my first time to McKendricks. Fabulous food, great selection and service was excellent. It was all it was touted to be in terms of a great steakhouse. i enjoyed the ambiance, the steaks were impeccably prepared and first rate and the waiter was hardly noticable as he was conscious of our business discussions and inserted only when appropriate. I have eaten in many stakhouses from New York to kansas City to Tampa and mcKendricks is "top drawer" in every sense of the word. I can not wait to go back!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDecadent rich food. Top notchDecadent rich food. Top notch quality and environment. Service and staff excellent.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMcKendrick's ReviewThe steaks are as good as you will find in Atlanta. Our party ordered ribeye's and filet mignon, both were outstanding. They were a little chintzy on the jumbo shrimp (only 3) cream of spinach was good as were the roasted mushrooms. Service was adequate though I had to ask for my water to be refilled a couple of times. Noise level on Wednesday night was through the roof. We could hardly hear each other talk due to a couple of tables that were large parties.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic and overFood was fantastic and over all service excellent. Noise level is deafening. Server could barely hear order and we had to shout to each other on our anniversary. Wine list good but prices very inflated.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. FOODSERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD. NOISE LEVEL TOO HIGH TO CONDUCT CONVERSATION. SOMEWHAT "OVER-PRICED".5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for celebrationsCelebrating my son's 21st birthday. Hostess greeted us with a smile . Our server team was amazing. We had the same waiter as our last visit. Very helpful with wine recommendations and with the specials. Had of course the tempura fried lobster tail and fried oyster appetizer special . Steaks very flavorful, cook as ordered. Dessert was brought out their wonderful TURTLE GELATO Pie with a candle so we could sing and we ordered the coconut cream pie for the table also. Both desserts amazing. Both times we ave gone to McKendrick's has been to celebrate a miles stone they make you feel very special. Service impeccable, Food perfectly prepared.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA little overpriced with theA little overpriced with the side items. Not to mention you don't get side items when you spend almost $50 on a steak!!!! Great tasting food overall.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice EveningOverall a very nice experience. Not crowded, no rush, attentive service, good food. Its difficult to eke out a competitive advantage in the upscale steak house segment; I can't say that this was unique, but everything met or exceeded our expectations.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMALWAYS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!Wonderful waiter and service
Great for any special occasion and fine food dining experience. Great bar drinks.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMbusiness friendlyMcKendrick's is a great place to conduct business and enjoy great food. Perfect location where service shows up when needed and does not feel the need to robitiically check in when not needed. McKendrick's is my go-to restaurant in the Perimeter Mall/Dunwoody area. The service is truly special and appropriately attentive.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything 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 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 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 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 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 AMGood but not GreatThe restaurant was out of the crab-cake appetizer so we ordered the barbeque shrimp appetizer. The shrimp had a good flavor, but were slightly overdone - therefore rubbery. I ordered the ribeye cooked medium thinking that it would tend to be cooked slightly less than medium (most high-end restaurants prepare meats slightly less than the doneness specified). The steak came out cooked med-well, which would have been terrible except that it was such a high quality steak - therefore retained its juicyness, tenderness and flavor despite the overcooking. The side of mushroom risotto was excellent, as was the okra. All food was brought to the table piping hot and freshly prepared. Wine list and bread were both exceptional.4/5/2013 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 AM
