    Smash isn't bad, but it's nothing to write home about. My salmon was good but overly salty. Our waitress forgot to put in our flatbread order before our meal so everything arrived at once. No big deal, and she offered to take it back and take it off our bill. She should've offered to leave it and take it off our bill. I like the atmosphere and love the exposed brick. Smash was ok but I probably won't go back.

    We have been to Smash many times. The food is always good, and we usually get fantastic service. Our server this time disappeared a lot. We were there early, so perhaps he was busy setting up his station. Appetizer of chicken livers was fantastic, fish entrees were also tasty. Fried chicken entree was overloaded with salt. We will continue to come back.

    Went for lunch and had a great time. Had the Dresden Smash for a cocktail and the Skillet Fried Chicken for my meal. We were celebrating a birthday so they brought us cheesecake with candles for dessert. We (there were four of us) would all go back.

    Dined on 10/19/2014
    My husband and I have visited Smash a number of times and really enjoyed everything about it. This visit, however, was very disappointing. The restaurant was so darkly lit that we had to use our phones' flashlights to read the menu. I had difficulty seeing my food!! Our waitress was sweet but not at all good. Poor service makes an unpleasant evening. We felt bad as we had suggested the venue. Our friends will certainly not go there again.

    Had dinner here after going to Cinebistro. We were seated immediately at a very nice booth. The and the hostess were great. Helpful and friendly. The menu was very enticing and the food was great. I had the salmon with a side salad and my husband had a burger. We look forward to returning Smash soon! Good work!

    I have been to Smash three times. The fried chicken is awesome if you do not like hearty food its not the most amazing big menu....pricing is pretty average, but for a few more dollars you can get a lot better quality places right down the street, like Houstons or any of the buckhead life restaurants. Ambiance is always good and they have very interesting menus!

    We go here a fair bit, 2-3 times a month. Good for a couples, a group of girls, even friends with kids like it (great kids cheeseburger) Try one of the tasty SMASH cocktails, good beer & wine selections. Not a great app selection, but good, fresh, standard food However, they used to have a teally good cod dish served with creamy mash & tomatoes. Took it off the menu for no good reason!! WHY oh WHY? It was light, flavorful & delish. BRING back the cod!! Only downside to current menu is over-salting the fries.

    Smash is not a *S*M*A*S*H* hit by any stretch.... While many of their concepts are good, I found the food overpriced and underwhelming. Some of my friends like it here and our party had a nice time but there are so many other (nad far batter) choices that I don't see Smash on my list

    I got the fried chicken plate for $20. It was Sooo salty (chicken and Mac and cheese). I like salty too!! I thought it was over priced for quality. I liked the fact there weresemi affordable wines on menu. Everyone else got the flatbread and that's what I would order next time if I ever was back. The outdoor dining was nice.

    Smash is in a great location for meeting with my friends for lunch and dinner. I have been a consistent diner at this restaurant since it opened. I wish they would change the menu up a bit because I go there so often and would like some new/additional choices. The quality of food has always been very good. But, when I was there last week, it seemed that the quality of my meal wasn't as good as in the past. I hope this doesn't mean that the quality of the restaurant is on a downhill slide. I will continue to give Smash another chance as the location and ambiance is important to me.

    This was our first visit to "Smash". As a Brookhaven resident, my wife and I had always noticed the vibrant scene as we ran or drove past the restaurant. It exceeded expectations! The staff was enormously gracious, and the menu offered something for everyone. Best fried chicken i have ever had! Everything from the appetizers, salad to the main course was perfect. A modern, clean, spacious atmosphere as well. A really enjoyable "vibe". We went strictly for dinner, but it would also be a great lunch or cocktail venue as well. We will definitely make many return trips.

    The one star rating I am giving them is based upon not being able to order brunch. While I had no issues with the food I was able to order and the service was excellent, it clearly states that they serve brunch until 3pm. Nowhere on their website does it say until 245 or if it's not busy we will no longer serve it. My reservation was for 245 and I was surprised when I was told brunch was no longer available and even more surprised when I found out they had stopped serving it at 230. I fully understand doing a last call for food when you are about to close for the evening but to cut off brunch at a time when a guest can go to multiple places and still be served brunch items at that time is asinine.

    The Food was fantastic. My first visit was amazing. great service and Food was awesome - especially the fried chicken. This time, the food was still great - but service started out good but then did not finish well. Server disappeared after our entrees were delivered and did not offer us dessert at all and three of the 5 were planning on getting dessert. Know that this is rare for this place so I will be back.

    We went to brunch today at Smash. The restaurant is very nice décor. We had the Fried Green Tomato appetizer which was very nicely prepared. For lunch we had the Cobb Salad - what a salad. This is a very nice large salad. Every item on it was very fresh to the fresh corn. chicken, bacon, etc. Service from Camille was great. Entire staff very friendly and helpful. Everyone that passed our table refilled drinks and checked to see if we needed anything. Manager Scott and his team do an excellent job with food and service. We look forward to another visit soon.

  • Why change good menu staples ??
    irishdinerVIP
    Dined on 7/11/2014
    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

    Dined on 7/10/2014
    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.

    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.

    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!!!
