It is in a very hip area. Great
to people watch. Food is very good. Service is great. Prices are appropriate to the area."

We liked that they offer basic,
straightforward food: steak, mashed potatoes, ribs, etc. The mojito was strong. Huge kale salad and good. The fried green tomatoes would NOT be something I'd order again."

We go to Smash a lot …2-3 times a
month & bring new people with us each time. Always pretty good food; ribs, fried chicken, cod & flatbreads Usually very good service However, they have a tendency to remove great staples from the menu. The cod was always a winner …half of our group would usually have the cod based on our recommendation. We turn up last week …it's OFF the menu?!? Why we asked, our waitress said they changed up the menu, but there have been many complaints since it was removed. They also removed the "winning sprouts" side dish a few months ago (big mistake). The excuse was they were not in season ??? Maybe the fried chicken liver starter can be removed instead! Give Smash a whirl. This could be a new favorite"

Sooo, every month my friends and I
try a new restaurant. I chose Smash from a list of top 50 in the city. The owner must have bribed the the group who put the list together The ambience and location work well, and our server was great. Decor is cliched; most menu items though "creative" seem ill conceived. Fried chicken livers with cinnamon vidalia onions were and odd and unsuccessful pairing in addition to being undercooked - read still red! Pimento cheese on the signature burger is a miss because it simply became and oily mess. The shining stars were the ribs and the banana cake dessert. Both were delectable. Unfortunately, neither could get me to teturn."

We were a party of four. The
restaurant was fairly quiet (maybe because of the long weekend), and so we could easily hear ourselves speak. The waitress was excellent, and the good was very good."

I was talked out of the crab cake
for the ribs. Not sure why. I heard the crab cake was good and the ribs were more food than I could eat. They were good, but not what I wanted. I should have stuck to my first thought. The fried green tomatoes were delicious. The shrimp and grits were stellar. The fried chicken was good as well."

We went for my husband's birthday
and were pleasantly surprised that a restaurant with some uniquely flavored dishes also had a kids menu which satisfied our picky eater. The service was very good and we are looking forward to dining their again soon."

This place is in a nice location
with great parking. I ordered the turkey burger and while it was good I think it was overpriced. My two friends ordered the skillet fried chicken with Mac n cheese and cole slaw. They loved the sides and thought the chicken was just ok. They allowed a man on the patio to have a dog. This was not ok with me."

Waitress was great. One thing
obvious - the restaurant implements tag team getting food to tables. Problem is on both appetizer and entree - plates are not cleared and patron is left juggling used plates and trying to make room for the food standing before you! This really needs to be addressed. Filet ordered med rare came out medium well. Kinda far off so that left one patron sitting and waiting. Med rare is warm red center - this steak had almost NO pink in it! That's a concern since our waitress extolled the chef on steaks. Still we will come back and back - love the place; maybe not order steak so even tho $34 is pricey for Smash menu really not so bad - unless it isn't cooked properly!!!"

friends and I went to Smash for
lunch on Sat. It was not crowded and we got a good table: server was good and efficient; I got the special of the day which was fish and chips: I was brought one small piece of deep fried fish and a very large order of fries and a small cup of warm cole slaw; My other friend got the grilled fish sandwich, fries and cole slaw: She said her fish was not good . The other two people both got the prime rib sandwich which they said was very good.So if you go there do not get fish!!!"

We visited for my daughter's
birthday. I ordered the Cobb Salad. To be honest, I really hesitated ordering it, as it was $16 and I thought that was a bit pricey. Little did I know that it was enough salad for my entire family. I swear it had two breasts of chicken in addition to the egg, blue cheese, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, etc. It was wonderful, and even quite beautiful as well. The burgers come with a ton of fries, so that made my family happy. My son loved the mac and cheese and the pork chop too. This place is far from my home, but near to my kids and my parents, we will be back, hopefully soon."

Smash Kitchen and Bar definitely
exceeded my expectations. They have a cool bar area where you can sit outside and I didn't expect outdoor seating but there it was! I wasn't in the mood for anything big but the beet salad I had was really good. I also had the mac and cheese but wasn't impressed. It was interesting because it was a little spicy but really not a good cheese flavor. I have to admit that I am somewhat of a cheese snob though since I lived in Wisconsin for a couple of years. I would definitely go back again."

This is the 3rd visit to Smash and
the food has always been very good. Great staff!"

If I were a horse your BIG COBB
SALAD would be a treat. And due to the gargantuian sized serving bowl I wouldn't have to worry about side spills. However I am not a horse. I prefer not to eat out of an oats pail, but on human-sized dinnerware. Who can eat comfortably and in a dignified way when the salad bowl comes up to your chin? What were you thinking when you designed this dish? HUMANITARIAN RELIEF - that you could feed the world in one sitting? (the furthest thing from the mind of anyone comming to eat in this part of town) VALUE - the more in the bowl the better the buy? (ditto). Good customers will always take quality, served well and promptly over quantity. Otherwise: the Mac & Cheese was palatable. Next visit: we'll tackle meats."

Smash is an enjoyable Brookhaven
restaurant with very good food. The fried chicken, mac & cheese and kale salad are winners. Nice to see Jeff the manager so visible."

The bar always fills up before the
restaurant but the food is good too! I have had several fun girls night out there and the service and food have been great every time."
Dined on 5/21/2014
First up, the service was GREAT!
The food however left a lot to be desired . Suggestion: if you're going to serve Seared Rare Tuna, buy the best quality product! The cut we had was sinewy and tougher to chew that this dish should be. All the rest of the food seemed overcooked as though it had been reheated as apposed to cooked fresh to order and yet when it came out was on cold plates and the bacon for example was cold .. The impression we got was the front of the house was enthusiastic but the kitchen really did not share the enthusiasm. By the way it was a slow night so the kitchen was under no pressure. "

Service was good although staff
not familiar with food ingredients for those with allergies. Food is overpriced for the quality/taste"

This was our 4th visit and brought
friends. Ron was a fabulous waiter and with just a small mention that the pork chop might be a bit on the salty side, Ron offered to correct, then had the manager out who comp'd our desserts to make up for it. A class act and we look forward to going back. Food is terrific! The fried green tomatoes and deviled eggs delicious. Rockin' hamburger! Fun bartenders. Definitely a place we'll enjoy going back again and again."

We had an awesome time on Mother's
Day at Smash Kitchen & Bar. The setting was great. Server needs a bit more training. The server gave us menu suggestions based on what the "restaurant/manager suggests" and "what he suggests". He assumed because we are black, we would not like the Mac & Cheese. He said the Mac & Cheese is "okay, but its not cheesy, like how we make it." Several of us ordered the Mac & Cheese anyway and it was quite tasty. It was not very cheesy as it was more cream based, but it had great flavor. Also, my husband is vegetarian. There were several options for him, which we liked. However he selected 3 veggie sides. I suggest that the sides be plated on one plate to look more appetizing instead of 3 individual bowls."

Four for noon brunch waited just a
few minutes for our reserved table. Very good service overall. We started with deviled eggs (three egg halves, but served with abundant "sides" including pimento cheese (but too few crackers)). Excellent tasting bacon accompanied most dishes (including the deviled eggs!). Ordered sweet (a french toast interpretation) to very savory (a steak and eggs "benedict" dish), all enjoyed and plates cleaned. "Usual" breakfast dishes (eggs, bacon, and grits, huevos rancheros with hash browns) were quite tasty. The breakfast dishes were not accompanied by bread so ordered biscuits which were more cake-texture than dense scone-texture, so not a satisfying "southern" biscuit. We will return."

Have been here several times after
work for cocktails and dinner. Food and service were great. Took some clients for lunch and it was disappointing. They seemed to be understaffed as there were not May people there and the service was slow. Music in bar was too loud for conversation, and foods was not cooked to proper doneness (steak & burger.) table had been wiped with a sour cloth so we had a funky smell going on too. I was not impressed and the lunch experience was not good for my out of town clients."

This is a good choice if you're
looking to sit outside and enjoy a meal and glass of wine on a beautiful day. We'll go back and try some different items on the menu."

We brought a group of five here
for my birthday. The food was very good. I got the prime rib, which was fine, but probably the worst order from the table. The smoked pork chop with mac and cheese was great and came out separate, not on top like some other reviewer complained about. The pretzel bread and deviled egg/pimento cheese/bacon apps we got were awesome. One of my vegetarian friends was there and happy. The cocktail list was interesting but a little fruity so we mostly stuck with regular drinks. I want to go back soon to try the brunch."
Dined on 5/1/2014
We loved it. My Mom and I got
the Club Salads, which could serve 3 people. Great ingredients but absolutely the largest bowl I have ever seen. My boyfriend got the Pimento Cheese bacon burger and raved about it! Very cute decor. And of course perfect location. thanks Smash. "

Food was ok - nothing to write
home about. Service was average at best. Nice ambiance. My party was four (4) late 40's and early 50's - each of us was carded when ordering an adult beverage. State authority problem? Not enough wait staff. Our wait person was clearly overwhelmed - too many tables. She lacked warmth, passion for anything and had no menu recommendations. Worse yet - we split the check and when I got home (me problem) I noticed the recommended tip % was for the full amount and not for my 50%. I tipped @ 20% so I "over-tipped" for an under-whelming night of food/service. The waitress had to know what I had done as a result of what was printed on check. Doing the right thing is always the best thing to do! #notgoingback"

We have eaten here several times
and it was always good. This time, not as good. They changed their fried chicken recipe and my husband was disappointed. Also, the french fries arrived cold and soggy, but they quickly brought a new hot and crispy order."
Dined on 4/25/2014
The food was just mediocre. The
ribs were devoid of flavor except for the sauce which was too sweet for my tastes. The Cod was very, very salty; if there were other more subtle flavors, the salt drowned them out. And the music was too loud to have a conversation without yelling across the table. I'd go back for drinks with a rowdy crowd, but not dinner."
Dined on 4/23/2014
Met two other friends there.
Martinis are very good, service was friendly and very professional. I had the crab cake which was excellent. Friends had salmon, they loved it said it was cooked just right, not over cooked. Definitely recommend Smash and plan to return soon."

This place is always a safe bet -
no big surprises, but very good food Eat here about 2-3 times a month Everyone in our group alway enjoy their dishes The cod w/tomato & whipped potato is excellent unfortunately they took the brussels sprouts side item off the menu - not sure why, they were always a winner This time however, the downside was the Skate special @ $28 with an up-charge to change the side from beans to succotash WHY?? when $28 is stiff enough!!

This was my first time at Smash
and it was great! We started with the fried green tomatoes, and deviled eggs and both were outstanding. The fried chicken is probably the best I have had in Atlanta. We will be back."
Dined on 4/6/2014
I've been here 4 times and Smash
has gone downhill every time. The portion size has decreased and the quality of the food has decreased. We had 4 people in our party. Two people's entrees came out wrong and had to be recooked. One burger ordered without cheese was served with cheese. Another burger that was ordered medium rare was cooked medium well to well done. We live in Brookhaven so if Smash was good, we would return on a regular basis. Unfortunately, it has proven to not be worth a return visit."

I really like Smash. Good food,
good service and great drinks. My only complaint is even with reservations we were seated a good 15-20 minutes after our reservation. But once seated everything was perfect."

Friendly staff, good information
on different dishes. I would go back."

Smash has a moderately upscale
menu, along with more casual bar choices. Presentation is good and the wine list is moderately priced. A nice place for a midweek meal or a Saturday dinner."
Dined on 3/27/2014
Food was great - nice variety,
slightly innovative, well prepared. Drink service was uneven - server seemed to be in a rush each time he came to table and left before getting full order. One scotch order was incorrect - bourbon rather than scotch. Out of McCallan. Wine selection good, other mixed drinks were generous. Overall, enjoyable evening, no feeling of being rushed, well prepared food"
