best soup i've ever hadCrab Soup was phenomenal! The flavor was robust and got better with each spoonful.
Black pepper shrimp was good, but the actual "Black pepper" was slightly overwhelming.
My wife ordered the grouper.Fish was extremely fresh and tasty, however, we did not know that it was breaded, which was a slight bummer since she is not eating fried foods and it wasn't spelled out in the description.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMReturnReturned to MacKinnon's after many years and found it a delicious and delightful experience. Excellent service and quiet enough for a conversation.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality establishmentOverall a good experience, fine food & great service. Ala carte menu is normally not my preferred option, but understandable with this type establishment.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends from PanamaWanted a quite place to dine with a friend from Panama that have not seen in several years. This place was excellent. The service was excellent but not intrusive. Food was excellent. If you are looking for place to escape the little brats and noisy 20 somethings, this is the place5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCajun gem!Excellent food and service! Doesn't look like much on the outside, but walking through the doors you are transported to a regal dining room. I highly recommend the seafood gumbo. not too spicy, just delish!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Atlanta ClassicWhen you walk into McKinnon's you will feel its warm, gracious spirit and you will be treated as a very special guest. The restaurant is comfortable and the service is outstanding. Seafood and fish are the specialties and they are done very well. They serve soft shell crabs, oysters, shrimp, crawfish and a whole flounder dish that is really a stand out. You can certainly get a great, spicy Cajun style dish here but the restaurant is not limited or defined by spicy. There is enough variety on the menu to satisfy a group with diverse tastes. The wine list is very affordable - their markup is one of the smallest I have seen in an Atlanta restaurant and they have quality labels. And there is bread pudding for dessert!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSERVICEFrom the time we walked into the door until we left Aziz, the owner, was very helpful. His review of the freshest items on their menu to recommending dessert was fantastic. If you want a great Seafood dinner in Atlanta then this is the place.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and I competeMy boyfriend and I compete to find restaurants with different cuisines, environments, and themes to take each other to on a date. I took him to McKinnon's Louisiane for our sixth month celebration and it was a romantic environment with excellent food. He won't like to admit it, but I definitely found the best restaurant in terms of food and service in our dinner adventures so far!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dinner with excellent serviceThe service was outstanding and the menu selections were good. However, without a coupon, the prices of the entrees would have been somewhat out of sync. McKinnon's has been in business in Atlanta for many years, and that speaks well of the restaurant. There aren't many restaurants in Atlanta with that record of longevity. The traditional furnishings are reminiscent of New Orleans. One is made to feel welcome and the courtesy of the wait staff never ends.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss the crab soupWhat an unexpected pleasure!
While in Atlanta for the Final Four, my husband had a taste for Cajun and booked a table at McKinnon's.
The crab soup I ordered was outstanding; spicy and full of flavor.
I ordered grouper Louisiane that was tender, flaky and perfectly prepared.
I have to give this a BIG thumbs up!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was excellent.The food and service was excellent. The waiters were attentive but not intrusive. The owner spoke to us.

Will go back and will recommend this restaurant to everyone.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant recommended byRestaurant recommended by a friend and it was great. Loved the bread pudding and Amberjack. I'm looking forward to trying the Halibut. Four of us enjoyed the cozy but quiet elegance of the restaurant. We all loved the roasted potatoes. We will be returning. It was an excellent meal and an excellent value as well. Service was also wonderful and the tea was real southern tea and it was absolutely delicious. Servers were friendly and helpful - all of them even the ones who were not "assigned" to our table and that was so refreshing. The owner came over and spoke to us and we enjoyed that exchange. He made us feel welcome and appreciated and that is at the top of why we will return as well.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLittle bit slow since theLittle bit slow since the place was slammed at about 730PM on a Friday. Normally have chosen to go mid weer. Still overall a great experience. As always the staff including the owner are great - very warm and welcoming. Food as always very tasty!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Louisiana food. TheGreat Louisiana food. The service was outstanding! Try the gumbo...this the real deal!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
