  • Thursday nite at the Cellar

    Four of us went on a Thursday night. We began with the fried green tomatoes--excellent. My wife had the lamb burger with onion rings, I had the wild boar burger with fries (too many fries) and the iceberg wedge. Brother-in-law and mother-in-law shared the large Angus reserve steak with garlic mashed potatoes and mixed greens salad. All entrees were excellent. BiL (from California) had a glass of Chardonnay and announced it "quite good." A bit on the high dollar side for Newnan, but we will save up and do it again.

    Last weekend we had dinner with friends at The Cellar, a quaint little restaurant in downtown Newnan. We had a great bottle of Pinot Noir with the best salmon we have had in years. Hats off to the chef! And, did I mention the server? The service was outstanding.

    We've lived in Newnan for years and are just tired of the same old chain restaurants. We decided to start trying the various venues in downtown Newnan and the The Cellar was the first one we tired. We made a reservation for 5:30 Friday evening, but it wasn't necessary. We were early enough that we were among the first to arrive for dinner. Everything from drinks to starters to their amazing salads and entrees were delicious! Oh and that Molten Lava Cake...mmmm! While it's a little pricey (We spent $100 includung tip) to go every week, we will certainly be putting The Cellar in our regular rotation! The service was also outstanding!!!

    It was my birthday and my husband wanted to try someplace different without driving into Atlanta. We found The Cellar and were pleasantly surprised. Wonderful food, good atmosphere and a very interesting menu. My 14 year old tried the kangaroo burger! It was a very nice meal and a wonderful change from all the chain restaurants. Will definitely be going back!!

    My husband and I went there for our anniversary. Great Chophouse that was less frustrating to get to than downtown Atlanta locations. We think the food was better than our special occasion, downtown spot. Our waiter, Jerry, was very helpful and knowledgeable. We plan to return and try one of the game burgers. My husband made a suggestion of having a sample plate containing the different burgers as sliders. That way you can try the meat without committing to a full burger.

    If your tired of Buckhead, and all the traffic in dowtown getting to a chophouse with great food, a great wine list and what I found to be very attentive excellect service, thy south of ATL, in Newnan Ga. The Celler is in the historic square of Newnan with interesting local shops, and a laid back flair. The food was excellent, we had the steak, but if your taste buds go for the eclectic, maybe the antelope, or kangaroo burgers may be your pleasure. Expect Old South Service, with an upscale wine and beer list. Have Fun

    What a great restaurant. After being seated and served our first drinks the staff was a little less attentive, left with empty glass and forgot to return. As dinner progressed though I will say the staffing improved. The apps (Conch Fritters) we okay, nothing to bring me back...but the steak, filet med rare and the rib eye medium were incredible. Contrary to other reviews I found the sides proportionate and adequate. I'd certainly return and would most certainly recommend.

    Service was slow and server was MIA a lot. Salad cams before appitizer because server forgot to order it. Received 2 rolls for the table asked for more never received them. My steak was over cooked , server never checked back after serving it. After dinner we were told about dessert offering then she eked away again. Never offered coffee or tea with our dessert.It was a disappointing evening got date night for myself and my husband.

    Reservations were at 5:30 on a Wednesday, so the restaurant was very quiet. As we were finishing (4 in the party) around 7 p.m., the band was setting up, so we cannot comment on the noise level after that. This was our second time there and the food was just as great as the first time. We enjoyed the aged reserved filet, the cowboy ribeye and the shrimp. Service also great.

    Everything was great! The only thing I was disappointed about was that I included a note in the reservation that it was my wife's birthday and to make it special for her. Normally a restaurant would bring out a dessert of some sort or an after dinner drink on the house. I'm not sure what happened but nothing was said or provided. Needless to say, I was pretty bummed out as this was our first time there.

    Took my wife out for a date night away from our two small children. This was a wonderful evening. Menu has a variety of exotic meat burgers and aged steaks. They have a nice wine and beer list. There were people dressed up and people in jeans and I think all fit in but I would say you'd be more comfortable atleast in a pair of khakis. The staff was very knowledgable about the menu items and was able to answer all our questions.

    If you want to try an entirely new dish, The Cellar is the place to go. Elk, antelope, kangaroo - not your usual menu. I chose the salmon, which was delicious. Our waiter made a suggestion for our wine choice, and it was very good. The restaurant was a little louder than usual, but there was a graduation party going on, and The Cellar did try to cut down on the noise by pulling a movable wall between us and the large party. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone visiting from out of town or any locals.

    The restaurant has a great feel and was a very pleasant dining experience. Tried the Salmon menu option but was not impressed. The wild boar sausage and lamb sausage appetizer was very good. I would recommend trying their game options as this seems to be their strong suit. Will return again as many of the game options on the menu were appealing.

    My date and I were fortuate enough to sit at the rear booth. It was very appropriate considering we were on our first date. We ate and had a great meal with dessert. We were there for at least 2 hours. The service was great. Our waitress gave us the right amount of service and privacy. The only issue I saw was the tear in the booth that exposed a large metal spring. It made it difficult to slide in and out.

    The cellar was phenomenal. When I give this restaurant five stars it truly earned it. The food was incredible, and the staff makes you feel like the only people there. The value was phenomenal though it was 70 dollars for two the food was comparable to restaurants in Atlanta that would have cost you more than double that. I recommend The Cellar.

    We were seated early for our reservation which was a nice change. The waitress seemed to be very pleasant. I ordered the 8 oz Aged filet and it had very little flavor. My wife ordered the Kobe and it was great. We waited for over an hour for our entrée to come out. The waitress did not ask if we wanted desert, she just brought the check and walked away. It was very close quarters and seemed to be very loud. We ordered a bottle of wine and they had to check to see if they had it in stock. This was not a specialty wine and since it is on the menu you would expect them to carry a large amount.

    The ambience was like a cozy cellar, though it is on street level. The menu is straight forward and meat-centric. Steaks are excellent, and comparable to Ruth's Chris--in flavor AND in price. There is a lot of trendy game meat: kangaroo, elk, antelope, etc. We had steaks with caesar salad and garlic mashed potatoes. The salad was good, the potatoes really good, and the steaks--in particular, my filet--were excellent. The service was quick (maybe a little bit rushed) and professional. If you are serious about your steaks and don't want to drive into Atlanta, this is the place to go.

    We had early dinner reservations for a Saturday. Not many people there yet, so it was very quiet. Food and service exceeded our expectations. My husband had the cowboy ribeye and I had the reserved aged filet. Both were excellent, as well as the house salad and the sides. The Red Slate wine that they recommended was also very good - smooth and dry.
