A word from Michon's Smokehouse
Established in 1990, A St. Louis combination started by Al Wilson that is truly fantastic!

Smoked meats are seasoned to perfection and cooked the old fashioned way, "Slooooooooow". Meats are seasoned with Michon's own special blend of herbs and spices. Michon’'s has become known for its consistently good homemade foods and particularly its smoked wings, a truly unique taste. The restaurant is classified under several categories: upscale dining, barbecue, sports bar, soul food, soulful gourmet, supper club, etc. The menu extends from southern comfort foods to the inclusion of smoked salmon, steaks, pasta Alfredo dishes, gourmet salads and desserts ‘to die for’. Guests are entertained with the sounds of live or recorded jazz, classic soul and gospel music; sports TV’s, dancing, and other special events.

    Overall the food was good, but the dessert was awful. The Red Velvet Keylime Cheesecake, was served to me, and I kid you not it was served with melted whipcream, and it had absolutely no taste. They were out of everything, I would not recommend this restaurant nor would I be going back anytime soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/22/2012
    Let me say I visited this restaurant because of a musician I saw at an outside venue. I looked this musician up online and noticed he had a regular gig at Michon's on Sunday nights. His name is Milkshake - fantastic musician - and if nothing else he is worth going to Michon's. I had the smoked wings, mac and cheese, sweet potato casserole and cornbread. I did enjoy the food and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Our waiter was a nice young man but slow especially with bringing beverages. Also the 2 different desserts we requested weren't available. I drove an hour to try this restaurant and I am not sure I would try them again, but I would recommend Milkshake!

    I was expecting more from this restaurant. They had a large crowd and we had to wait a long time before being served. The total coordination of the restaurant was off. We were told the food was worth the wait and I am not sure it was. Michon's has great potential but I think I will wait until I see better reviews.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Too noisy. The large table should not be in the middle of the room with the smaller tables. That made it difficult to listen to the musician. The meats are great, service was poor. The waitress just disappeared on us. If I return, it will not be anytime soon. Too far to travel for such poor service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 5/20/2012
    Good points - The food is good and traditionally southern. The Smoked meats are incredible and well seasoned. The ambiance is suitable for families and there is a Southern charm to the place. Bad points - the Sunday evening staff was overwhelmed. It was graduation weekend - for which the staff should have been prepared based on their reservations alone. It was only after I complained (waited an hour for food) that the management called "all hands". Things improved then. Just be sure to inform the restaurant if you have a large group and question whether they will be adequately staffed. The live music is nice - but can be too loud. Dinner is a time when people converse, music should not overwhelm the ambiance.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    My family of 7 enjoyed a wonderful outing at Michon's for Mother's Day! Our reservation was for 11:45am for 5 adults and needed 2 children's high chairs. When 11:45am approached we unfortunately were running late for our reservation and surprisinly received a phone call from Michon's to see if we were still coming! The hostess graciously moved our time for 30 extra minutes and when we arrived, she walked us straight in to our table where the high chairs were in waiting at the table too! Even though it was one of the busiest days of the year for a restaurant they still catered to us! Let's not forget the FOOD! It was DELICIOUS! Great brunch buffet of southern classics and some with a twist!! My husband loved the Smoked Wings!!

  • 3 Chicken Wings..$13. Enough Said!
    Taron35
    Dined on 4/21/2012
    Michon's was very average to say the least, but yet, WAY overpriced! 3 whole chicken wings...$13! A Cesar salad with nothing added, $9! I made reservations and upon arrival the only options were to sit at the bar (next to the Sat night DJ) or sit outside! What kind of reservation is that? We reluctantly sat outside, where there is a lovely view of a busy Virginia Ave. and a beautifully well manicured CEMETERY! Overall the service was sub par, there was large bday party on the patio area of about 15-20 people, and they were VERY LOUD. The food is also nothing to write home about. I'd advise you to only go for lunch, but not definitely for not dinner. The building is nice, but other than that..ambiance, service, food, and value...C- best.

    The food is great, but the service there is horrible. This is my 3rd visit & the service has remained consistenly poor. The hostess (thin light skinned young lady) is rude and impatient. She needs some training on how to deal with impatient customers. The ppl kept asking her how long is there wait and she seemed very annoyed by this same question on EACH of my visits. I heard her tell one customer she can't go see if his table is available because she are CONSTANTLY asking her how long there wait is? Uggh DUH, that comes with your job lady!!! Learn how to politely calm these customers down a lose the attitude. Once we were seated it took 15 mins for somewhen to take our drink order and 15 more to get the food order, hence to long waits!!!!

    The setting was nice but the food took too long to come out. The waitress rarely came back to offer refills on our drinks. The band is the best thing that the restaurant has and they were not playing. We wete told that the dj was a no show.Communication is not the best between the day and night staff.

    The food here was good as noted on other reviews, but not soooo good that it impressed. I was unexpectedly surpised by the taste of the steak, not dry at all like I was expecting for the price. I was hoping the setting was more romantic for Valentine's weekend, but it was mostly loud groups with kids. Good for lunch or hanging with friends, but not intimate at all.

I have always recommended this spot to friends from other cities and will continue to do so. I give this spot 5 stars for service, atmosphere, music, the great staff that has always been a pleasure to interact with. It would be safe to say Michons is one of the best in Atlanta, and is reasonably priced.

    Not really sure it was labeled Sunday "brunch" when there was only one brunch item on the buffett? Also, not sure why a Smokehouse would have lasagne as their "signature" buffet dish?? It was mediocre at best. The smoked wings were awesome--and the true signature dish if you ask me! The catfish (when hot) was pretty good too.

    The macaroni and cheese is amazing. The wings are great, but don't eat too many as the smoky spice can become overbearing. It was perfectly done as the bones pulled right out. We had to wait a little, but I believe that it was because they were swamped. We drove from Cobb and will return if we are in the neighborhood, but won't likely return just to eat.

    A friend recommended Michon's a great spot to have my husband's 50th birthday party and it was perfect! The food was a great blend of many Southern favorites. I had never imagined so many tasty entre' options for turkey. Our server was very attentive especially considering we were a party of more than 20! And the charged atmosphere with both a DJ and a live band made for a great way to make room for dessert by doing the "Wobble" on the dance floor. I will definately visit again and I would gladly recommend it to anyone.

This was very unprofessional, the phone call should have come much sooner so that I would have been able to make other or even earlier arrangements, I was unable to take my mom out on her birthday, this was not just a regular get together but a special occasion, even so there was no other offer to accomdate another time..... poor business

    My group of four hungry men started ordering the smoked chicken wings and catfish bites as soon as we sat down. Fortunately they came fast and hot and helped us forget that we'd waited almost 45 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. Shouldn't have been surprised that a Friday night during the holidays would have the place packed with large groups celebrating Christmas. I avoided Michon's for some time because the service was shabby. Not any more! Our server was fast, attentive, and made sure to get it right! She brought heaping plates of ribs with amazing macaroni & cheese, greens, and sweet potato souffle as sides. No one was disappointed.

    It was my husband's birthday on Dec 13th and a friend suggested this place. Unfortunately, we came for lunch during an office party and they were extremely loud! We moved from the booth to the high top tables in the bar area and the ambience of sitting in a booth was lost. The waitress wasn't very attentive. She took forever to refill my sweet tea and I drank most of my husband's by the time she finally did. The food came out lukewarm, my biggest pet peeve! I had smoked wings which were tasty just not hot to the touch. My husband had the brisket dip sandwich and fries all was cold and tough. We did appreciate the waitress "remaking" my husband's French Connection drink, she used Crown Royal instead of Hennessey. Willing to try for dinner.

    I wouldn't recommend doing a large party. Not sure if the restaurant is equipped for that. The waiter never checked on us. He only came to our table when he took our order, brought the food out & gave us our check. The food was cold, several orders were wrong, we had to asked for refills multiple times and no apologies. I'm not real sure if it was the restaurant or just a bad waiter. Our server could not handle the large crowd. I don't think he said I'm sorry one time. I think it would be a nice place to go on a date. I am willing to try it again but only with a couple of people.
