    My husband and I tried this restaurant for the first time and it was delicious! Our server Patrick was attentive but not overbearing. Made some great recommendations on food selection. Great atmosphere for a date night. A special little treat if you walk through the large "freezer door" in the back of the restaranut and visit Eleanor's! We can't wait to go back!

    We eat and drink at Muss & Turner's about once a month or so and we're never disappointed. The burger is definitely the best in Atlanta. Soups & salads are delicious, the cocktails are perfect and the larger plates are always memorable. Service is always well-informed, friendly and warm. We are so lucky to live nearby!

  • Check Your Credit Card Statement
    ChrisDVIP
    Dined on 7/30/2014
    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.

    I've heard about MT for a long time, and this was our first visit --- they did not disappoint! the restaurant was very loud, and the host suggested that we could sit inside or outside, we chose outside - Patrick was our waiter, great guide to the menu, and helpful, attentive, and friendly. The food was spot on - all flavors seemed just right - not overdone, but just right ---- what a great experience, we will be back!

    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.

    Papa Max - H&F Bagel with kippered salmon, cream cheese, rosemary, capers and a nice salad with a great vinaigrette and a side of potato hash. Just delicious. 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.

    Interesting items on the menu - nothing outstanding, food was OK. Desserts good but portions a bit too large. Extremely loud - an AC was on high - inside so if you are going to have a real conversation with someone and not freeze its best to sit outside.

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!

    This restaurant was referenced several times in a cookbook that I bought. On my next business trip through Atlanta I made a point of stopping by and checking it out for myself, I'm so glad that I did. The menu was incredible with lots of things that I can't get in the Seattle area. The blend of flavors was great, really a good find. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable that you could come with buddies for a beer or bring the family. I'd go back if I'm in the Atlanta area again.

    Jason and the rest of the staff are the reason I keep going back. They manages visit to the table even when things are going great shows a vested interest in the actual people. Good bourbon and beer selection. The burger is one of the best I've had in Atlanta. The fries are great and make sure you ask for the off menu dipping sauces. And you can't leave without getting a warm chocolate chip cookie. Overall a very good experience. I will absolutely be going back and telling all my friends.

    This is a combo take-out fancy food/dine-in place. Very family friendly & casual. Great service. Seemed overpriced to me. My food was okay to good, not great; interesting combos of ingredients which didn't quite hit the mark. I had the duck nam tok as a small dish: large portion, tasty but heavy on the salt/fish sauce. For my large plate I had the pork belly which came with greens similar to those in the duck dish, tart strawberries (not good), pearl onions & some curry-like sauce. Not a great flavor combo. I'd never had pork belly, but mine was mostly two big slabs of fat, which I would not eat, with a little rather crusty pork. Hubby's diver scallops were huge & well-cooked, but the sauce + mushrooms overwhelmed the scallops' flavor.

    I had an early dinner here, so it was not very crowded and pretty quiet. I ordered a burger (medium) and it was cooked to perfection and I must admit was the best burger I've had in a long time. The only complaint I have is that my girlfriend ordered the steak small plate and asked for it medium-well, and most of it was barely medium, much less medium-well. The prices are also a bit high, especially for alcohol. Please note that almost all of the draft beers are not pints, but 13oz pours, even if they are not high alcohol brews. Other than that, it was a great experience. The food was great and the service was great.

    Muss & Turner's has been a favorite dining spot of ours for years which makes their fresh, seasonal menu all the more enticing. Nothing is worse than seeing the same tired dishes and this is NEVER a worry at M&T. Try to stop yourself at a small plate or two, it's not possible. We can't pass up the fabulous beef tartare and if we're especially hungry, the charcuterie plate. The cheese selection is phenomenal. The dessert array has something for every sweet tooth. The seasonal large plates really steal the show. They are imaginative, tasty and beautifully presented. The food quality is second to none. Locally grown/procured (when possible), all ingredients are the best they can possibly be. Eat here, you'll be back.
