    The waiter wasn't attentive, it was very noisy (not our thing), the air conditioner was broken so it was hot, but the food was very good.

    M&Ts is still a great place to grab a bite and Eleanor's on the back is pretty cool. I have to say, though, that perhaps the focus on quality on the food has slipped a little? Three of us ordered medium-cooked burgers and they were medium-well to well-done. Didn't say anything as we were tight on time (and they still tasted good) but I have come to expect better cooking at M&Ts. I love that they still will make my favorite cocktail even though it is no longer on the cocktail menu (bring back Burt B.!).

    We've been for lunch, so we decided to try dinner. We were disappointed. My wife's salad was not entree size despite the cost. My bbq sandwich was heavy on bacon, light on bbq and the horseradish slaw... an expensive dinner sandwich when only served with a pickle. Their selection of beer and wine took some of the disappointment away. Think we'll stick to lunch.

    We managed to sneak into Eleanor's where we have had several great experiences. Bartender Josh was top notch as usual. Atmosphere is delightfully funky. Food not so delightful. Devilled eggs were great. burger was a serviceable burger. Beef brisket pot pie which the server recommended enthusiastically was terrible. Dry pastry, no sauce and no flavor in the overcooked beef and veggies.

    Really enjoyed the food. My husband and I shared the apple salad though it was missing the cheddar cheese. I had the Reuben and my husband had clams and a beef pot roast dish. Dessert was a tasty pear and cranberry tart. Yum! Will be back soon.

    I've been visiting this place for a long time. It has become one of my favorites. The food is farm to table. The people who work there feel like my own real life friends! They have the coolest bar in the city, the best burger in town and one of the most comprehensive wine list in any resturant. The food options are flexible. Have a sandwich or get a high end entree. Have a German beer or just get a coke. The brilliance of this place is they can adjust to whatever you are feeling. The good folks there are great people and I suggest you visit anytime--you won't be disappointed!

    Took awhile to get the service started but after that it was attentive. Salad and appetizer were delicious but was really looking forward to the brisket pot pie - it was stew served in a large bowl with a square of pastry floating in the middle. This is NOT a pot pie, please don't label it as such. The flavor was good but the brisket was pretty much non-existent. So disappointed in this over-priced entree. The aroma from the kitchen was wonderful - may have to return at lunch to try the sandwiches.

    First time for me, second for my husband, all in the same week! Friendly welcome and service, clean and organized. The Burger, was the best burger I've had in Atlanta. All of the flavors merge perfectly together, the beef, poblano pepper, cheese, red onion and aioli on the bun, and to top it off, I ordered bacon on it also - Wow! Just thinking about it makes me want to run out for another one. We ate at the bar in the speakeasy Eleanor, located behind a large steel door in the back - how cool is that?? The front restaurant and the deli looked very inviting also, will try that section next time. Everything was fantastic overall. Highly recommend!

    The food was fabulous, the devil eggs had a twist with the anchovies which added another layer of flavor. The new menu has trout and scallops my friends plate was clean so I must say each entree was. 10. Don't forget dessert chocolate pudding cup, the white brownie and the red velvet whoopsie pie each was great.

    Tried M&T for Friday night dinner with another couple. We knew going into it that the entrees were pricy but expected the portions to be in line with the price. Unfortunately this was not the case; hence the three stars. The shock somewhat marred the experience for us. If we go back, we now know to stick with one of the sandwiches. If we do return, I'll certainly provide an updated review. On a positive note, the adjoining Eleanor bar has a great speakeasy feel. We will go back there.

    We have been to Muss & Turner's many times, but went for brunch for the first time this past Sunday. It was incredible. We will definitely be returning! We could barely make up our mind's on what to order, so we have to go back to try everything on the menu. Best restaurant in Smyrna/Vinnings by far!

    The food is fine--but they have charged my credit card incorrectly on two separate occasions. Once is an isolated incident, but twice means there is either an incompetence or a server dishonesty issue. I dine out at least 100 times per year, and this is the only restaurant in the past several years where I have had any problem. There are many better choices--so think twice before dining here.

    The deviled eggs appetizer was mediocre... too much mayo not enough other flavors. But I had a trout entree (served with kale and smoked tomatoes) that was outstanding. I also appreciated the fact that they have Ballast Point on tap now.

    The staff is very laid back and friendly. The food is always on point. I had the BLT Trout and it was awesome. Deviled eggs and pimento cheese are great starters for a smaller group. It's right down the road from my house, which makes it even better. My only gripe is the parking. There really isn't enough of it. I circled the parking lot twice before I gave up and parked across the street. Not really their fault, just worth noting.

My wife had the burger and fries and it was awesome as usual. No Black Maple Hill Bourbon though! Everyone is out, even the restaurants! One of the best places to chow in the ATL!

    I am a huge foodie enthusiast. I have been in love with Local Three for so long & have been to Muss & Turners for the very reason that it is owned by the same team. However, this night out at M&T was the worst experience & I am sad to say that I will not return. Service to me goes hand in hand with the food. The food was decent that night, but because the service was so poor, I cannot come back. We even had someone come over & offer us something while we were waiting on our Appetizers, so she kindly offered us bread. We waited & then the appetizers ended up coming out before the complimentary flat bread shows up. My fiance asked for one item- mustard. He waited on eating his burger, the mustard never came, we asked for our check and left.

The salsa had amazing flavor. My friend had the M&T Breakfast and said it was also very tasty. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal.

    As always, Muss & Turner's is consistent, delicious and inventive. We opted to sit in Eleanor's (the super double top secret speakeasy) for a quieter meal. We enjoyed a brilliant dish with roasted chick peas, olives, tomatoes, squash and spices. It was like summer in a bowl. We had a blueberry and peach salad with M&T's famous Big Green Egg grilled chicken- not a your regular ole salad...this one was super fresh, bursting with flavor, and the goat cheese really brought all the flavors together. Of course, the cocktails are not to miss. Muss & Turner's is our go-to place, you never know what's on the menu, but you always find something new and delicious. Keep up the great work!
