The Pecan was perfect
I had a group of 10 come in from all over the country. It was close to the hotel, the food and service were terrific, and everyone enjoyed their time there!

Everyone was very attentive.
Everyone was very attentive. The food was great! This is a good spot for date night, birthdays, friends or celebrations. I wouldn't bring kids here, it's more of an adult atmosphere. Try it out!

Simple, upscale restaurant with extremely delicious food. If you eat anywhere in Atlanta, make it The Pecan.

Really enjoyed lunch. Very
Really enjoyed lunch. Very nice grilled chicken sandwich. My dining companion had a wonderful chicken dish with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. Nice complementary cornbread. Would recommend it if you are in the neighborhood.

We were in from out of town
We were in from out of town and count this to be an excellent choice. The food was creative and freshly prepared, and there are plenty of choices for varied palates. We will go again when in the area. Service was terrific.

The Pecan was a wonderful
The Pecan was a wonderful experience for my parents and I when we arrived in Atlanta from Los Angeles. As soon as we left the airport, we headed here to try the entrees we'd read so many wonderful reviews about. Fried catfish, Crab cakes, appetizer sampler, and biscuits were absolutely stellar. Our server was very friendly and our selections came out promptly during a high traffic time of the day (6PM). We LOVED this place, and would highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for fabulous food in a lovely setting.

Mother's Day Brunch
We took our mom to the Pecan for breakfast/brunch. She has always talked about the restaurant, so we decided to treat her to a meal on Mother's Day. The food at "The Pecan" was great! The chef's dishes were great. The shrimp and grits were yummy and I love the smooth-creamy texture. (The Chef at the Pecan need to give some pointers on Shrimp and grits to some restaurants in my area. Since this was my first time at the restaurant, I was not sure what the "protocol" was as far as getting food, drinks, so I was a bit confused. The doors opened a little later than our reservation, but that did not dampen the spirit of the day. The only issue that my brother had with the Pecan was that there were no plates available.

It keeps getting better
My husband and I have dined at the Pecan twice and each time we each try something different.
Each entree went beyond our expectation. Pepperjack grits..simple thought right? Try them, they are anything but simple!
Can't wait to go back to try more!

Good Food, but not well lit
The food is delicious! Cozy, but not crowded. Staff is very nice. I've only had one server who was "less than personable." He added an 18% tip to my bill (two people). Since I'm usually a 20% type of guy, he cut himself short.
The only issue I have is that if you get a table in the rear, inside is much too dark. It is too dark to be romantic. Sure, the moon light that is cut into the roof is supposed to provide light is a nice touch and supposed to add to the ambience, but I'd rather be able to read my menu without an issue. I always make reservations and request window seating.
5/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
good neighborhood restaurant
The food is consistantly good, and the service very attentive. Love the pecan crusted shrimp appetizer...wish they would make that into an entree.

Everything I Expected and More
My wife and I made 12:30 pm reservations for Sunday brunch during our short stay in Atlanta. On Sunday morning our plans changed and we called to make earlier reservations. The Pecan was very accommodating to our change request. When we arrived, there was adequate parking and it wasn't too crowded (probably because of the graduations that were taking place nearby). I had pancakes and breakfast potatoes and my wife had the chicken and waffles. Both were delicious. An added bonus was the live music. Even though we went in the morning, it looked like a great place to have a romantic dinner. Lastly, as a person who suffers from nut allergies, there was absolutely no problem with my allergies at The Pecan.

Treated a special friend out on a date.....excellent food, service, and overall experience!!
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
You can count of great food
Crab cakes are one of the best you will ever have.
Service was only slightly better than average but it should have been better.

Pleasurable experience at The Pecan
Surprising food quality and presentation in College Park close to the airport. Afforded my guest time to have a very nice dinner at an upscale restaurant and catch his flight with no hassle on a Friday night. The place is very popular so reservations are a must. The menu is ver good with lots of Southern fare to choose from. My guest and i ordered the specials because they sounded so good. He had a massive bone-in rib eye and i had the "Surf & Surf" which was a Lobster tail and crab cake. Both meals were excellent. My only complaint is that for such a wonderful meal in a clean, refreshing environment, the service could have been better. Overall: Very Good.

Great Dining Experience
I recently had brunch at The Pecan Restaurant and, I will definitely return.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best of College Park...
This restaurant is the best in downtown College Park, GA - belongs with the best of them in Buckhead but within easy reach for those on the Southside or on a long layover at ATL Airport.
Great for business & for those romantic evening dinners.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Maybe Just Our Server?
We typically go in-town to dine, but decided that we would give this restaurant a chance. The food & ambience were decent, however, our server lacked attentiveness. Appetizers and desserts were very good. We will give the restaurant another chance, and hope for another waiter.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a date night on our first visit here last night and it was a great experience. We had an 8:30pm reservation and were seated right away. Our server was attentive and the food was excellent. We ordered the pecan-crusted cocktail shrimp for our appetizer - delicious! For entrees, we got the bone-out rib-eye steak with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus...very tasty...and the catfish and pepper jack grits with collards greens. The catfish is not fried with corn meal-based batter, so it was a lighter and unexpected taste (not sure what it was), but the grits and greens were fantastic. We had a window table and the view of the street isn't the best, but the ambiance inside was still nice enough for a date. It's pricey, but we'll return.

Good neighborhood gem
Food was very good but waiter didn't bring any bread (not that we needed to eat it). We didn't miss the bread as the salads were rather big. Salmon and lamb chops were excellent. Mashed sweet potatoes were perfect.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything for the service to the food was fantastic. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. The appetizer and dessert samplers are the way to go. We had a party of 8 and the whole was impressed with this neighborhood gem.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a find?
The Pecan is a mix of class and smooth. The food is outstanding. It is familar, yet with surprising twists of flavor. Highly recommended and especially for those looking for something close to the airport.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Pecan is a really nice restaurant. The food was fresh, well prepared and very tasty. The ambience is cozy and refined. I love the exposed brick and all the decor. The jazz singer was a nice touch too. I am looking forward to dinner there in a couple of weeks.

Pecan and ATL travel
When spending the night or early evening while traveling through the Atlanta Airport this great retaurant is nearby, easy to get to and a real option as opposed to downtown.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great chicken & waffles!
It was a real treat to discover the chicken and waffles during a special feature of the Sunday Brunch. They were much better than the greasy ones at Gladys Knight's restaurant!
8/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
It's been awhile since we visited The Pecan. Once again, OUTSTANDING! The service is impeccable and the food was wonderful. We were celebrating a special occasion so we both indulged ourselves with the lobster tails. OMG...delicious! Not to be missed is the leek and asparagus soup. This is the only place we have seen this and it is so good. The Pecan is definitely a dining destination. We live on the south side of Atlanta. There is no need to travel any further than The Pecan for an excellent dining experience. Thanks you!!

Great place to dine with friends
Great place to dine with friends and family. This was my second visit and the first for my husband and friends - we enjoyed the our dining experience. The wait staff was attentive, and the food was fantastic!

I simply live this restaurant. It is indeed a neighborhood gem. I always enjoy the twist to a few of their southern favorites.
9/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
The waiter was very convincing about describing the specials which we went for. They were absolutely delicious. The crab cakes were so light and flakey and filling. The shrimp cocktail was amazing and the presentation was great.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous near the airport
Staying in a hotel near the southern end of the Atlanta airport and a lady at the front desk recommended The Pecan. Easy to get to and fabulous food! Staff was friendly and professional. Highly recommend for anyone staying or living here. I will definitely dine here again when I come back to Atlanta.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere and food
It was a lovely place in College Park with outstanding food. Appetizers and entrées were prepared to perfection and the wine selection was above average. The staff was warm, friendly and service was great. We will definitely repeat.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stayed near the airport. After reading the reviews our group of 7 decided to give it a try. It lived up to the reviews. Definitely will return on our next trip to Atlanta.

# 1 Restaurant, BRAVO!!!
I always enjoy my dining expereince at The Pecan. The food and service is a special treat and I love introducing the restaurant to new people. It makes them feel so special (and me too)!!I BRAVO!!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect place to dine after
Perfect place to dine after picking up friends, family or spouse from the airport. Nestled in a quiet "Main Street" atmosphere, it was a great meal and good time to relax and enjoy the company.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was outstanding and the service was very good. Slightly on the pricey side for the food alone.

What a Surprise!!!
searched what was near my hotel in atlanta, and reserved at the Pecan. the appetizers (crab cakes, fried shrimp, and wontons) were delicious. for the main course I ordered the blackened tilapia, another great choice.
and of course..this place is called The Pecan..we had to order a Pecan Pie. I was expecting something with lots of sugar, but no, what a great pecan pie.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were greeted nicely, seated and then truly forgotten about; however, once I talked to the person waiting on the table next to ours about the fact that no one seemed to be assigned to our table, everything went just fine after that. Nice people working there and good food, but a definite disconnect between hostess and wait service. We had NO attention at all for the first twenty minutes or more after being seated (no water, no drink order taken). Also seemed that the bar service was a bit slow. But still, the drinks were great and the food was noteworthy!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM

Very pleased with everything & our server Johnathon was awesome !!

Consistently superb dining
We've enjoyed The Pecan for dinner and Sunday brunch regularly for years and have never been disappointed by the menu selections or service. The Pecan is elegant in decor and is perfect for special occasions. This restaurant provides a consistent, reliable and superb dining experience that will not disappoint!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Pecan is a neighborhood gem with fine quality food that you would expect at most high end downtown restaurants. I love that the menu is always full of dynamic specials and faithful regular items that are mouth watering. The food is always a pleasure to the eyes and the pallet. The combination of flavored are unmatched and the service is top notched.

Dining at the Pecan
I have always enjoyed the Pecan since having found it 4 years ago. I frequently take my staff after season is over for a celebratory luncheon. The salmon, the steak, the shrimp cocktail, and the Georgia motif is all well worth the visit.

The food was delicious!!! Very romantic with soft jazz playing in the background. Valentines day-like ambiance. Dessert was good but pricey($10 for the peach cobbler+ $3 extra if you want ice cream on top). Good service.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will continue to go back
Great food, called ahead asking NOT to be seated by the window, clearly there was some confusion as they tried to seat us by the window twice. As a result on a slow Friday night, with 5-6 tables in the entire restaurant we were seated in a half booth/table 2-top right by the door, with the blistery rainy weather blowing in everytime sometime entered or exited the restaurant. Our sever seated us... he was pleasant, but paid no attention to details or even some basics to serving, the fantastic food allowed us to over look the weak service and enjoy our evening.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
a great surprise in College Park
We had to meet friends halfway between Buckhead and Chattahoochee Hills. Our rendezvous spot ended up being a place we will return to many times. A sophisticated, unusual southern menu every dish was outstanding. this will become a destination restaurant for us
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time we have ventured
First time we have ventured into the College Park dining scene and we were pleasantly surprised. Good menu choices however wine selection a bit limited. Food was tasty and well-presented and we loved the restaurant's architectural details. Definitely will return.
