    Have not dined here for lunch in months. Invited out of town business guest for important conversation. Food was awful... It actually bothers me to say this as I have always thought of McKendrick's as my go to fail safe business lunch spot. Maybe it was just a bad day for the folks there... I will spend $50+ for lunch there again - but if anything like the food quality received on this visit - just dang...

    Food was very delicious. Brought my wife a piece of wonderfully tasty ice cream cake for her dessert. Only if the waiter had more personally and taken care of us for the $200 check. I would of given 5 stars. Figured the waiter was having a bad day even though it wasn't busy.

    it's hard to find time for a date night. Once the time is found, you want a nice restaurant, or rather, a great restaurant. This is it. Paul is the waiter of waiter's and was there when needed, an gave us room as required. Chef's bone-in ribeye is too good to pass up, just a fine cut of meat cooked perfectly! The haricot vert (French green beans) were wonderful and I never thought I would care for mac and cheese so much, but lobster mac and cheese........incredible! Pad your wallet before you go, but it is so worth it. Fine dining across all categories: business dinner, date nite,.....you pick, just make plans to go.

    Went to McKendrick's on a referral from a friend, while on vacation. The food was fantastic, as was the service. Be forewarned, however: you get what you pay for, and it's not inexpensive.

    Our server was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was excellent. After a hot day spent outdoors, I drank a great deal of water (with my wine) and I never saw the bottom of my glass. In my opinion, that is the best quality of an attentive waitstaff.

    Went to this restaurant for a special occasion. The food is good not great and for what it costs it should be great. Our waiter poured our wine faster than we could drink it clearly wanting us to order more. Given that we have Bones and Chops in Atlanta with similar menus and price points with great food there is just no reason for us to return here.

    Very skimpy drinks and an incredibly loud venue at 8:00 PM mid-week. Flavorful steaks, well seasoned and cooked precisely as ordered. Good waiter and professional wait staff. Above average dessert menu, but overall a disappointing evening for $200 for two.

    Really wanted a steak dinner last night with my 2 girls but couldn't get into Bones or Hal's. Decided on McKendricks! Atmosphere was pleasant. We had two servers(not sure why) and surprisingly service was horrible. We ordered 2 filets, shrimp & lump crab meat cocktail, 2 tomato salads (salads were good), mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms (good) with 1 glass of wine. Walked out spending $212.00! me, my 16 & 11 yr old girls. The steak was incredibly disappointing. Not over or under cooked, just lacked flavor! Had to ask for sauce to finish my steak. Absolutely nothing to rave about. Will always spend top dollar on a top dollar steak, but not a McKendricks. Next time I can't get into Hal's or Bones, I will opt for a cheeseburger! Sorry.

    The food quality was excellent, except for the fact that their lobster bisque didn't have any actual lobster in it LOL (it was still tasty). The service was good but not excellent (Capital Grille service is better). The ambience/decor was okay but could also be better (like Capital Grille).

    Food and Service were great. Steak cooked perfect. Very Expensive. Friday night at 8pm. We were one of 3-4 couples there. Recommend lowering price somewhat and/or including the sides with entree'. 4 members in our party, couple drinks each. Tab was over 400.00.

    We have always had great experiences but this was not one them. Everyone who had steaks complained about the amount of salt. I recommend that if you order steaks, ask them to hold the salt rub. They have incredible steaks, not sure why they would cover that up with the excessive salt. Waiter read off the list of specials like he was programmed. When asked questions, he was able to answer but we felt like he came to work with a chip on his shoulder amd we were taking the brunt of that anger. Made everyone at table uncomfortable. I had the 24ounce steak, ate about 6 ounces and was looking forward to taking it home for a steak and egg breakfast. The steak never made it back to table as they forgot and it was thrown away. Disappointing

    Overall, there are better options for a steakhouse experience in Atlanta. Table service was rushed, courses were coming out on top of each other. Appetizers were poorly prepared, bisque was watery, oysters were poorly shucked with pieces of shells in every bite. Salad was decent, but our steaks were at the table before we could even have a chance to finish. Steaks were nicely prepared, sides were decent but nothing to write home about. Overall, you pay too much money for this much of a rushed experience.
