I recommend The Pecan every chance
I get. The crab cakes are unbeatable!"

The food was good and customer
service was good. I would recommend this place for friends and family who have a flight lay over in the ATL. area. It is close enough to the airport to have a great fellowship in an environment that is friendly and clean. The atmosphere is a good way to get a taste of ATL especially if you are trying to encourage them to move into the area. "

Visited for lunch and had the crab
cakes on a salad. Whole meal was fabulous as was the service from a most personable young woman. Don't miss the muffins--they're so tiny you have to have more than one!"

Did well, bar was out of Chivas
Scotch which was a little strange...kind of a staple...but otherwise all very good."

This restaurant is located on the
outskirts of SW Atlanta opposite the MARTA College Park Station. The menu is updated southern faire. I had the crab cakes, which were nicely seasoned, though the crab meat was shredded (I prefer lump crab). The only negative was that our server failed to advise us of the special entrees which we overheard from another server after our order was in."

The food was fantastic. In
particular the grits, pecan pie & peach cobler were the best we ever tasted. Make sure you have a lot of time though as it took almost 2 1/2 hours for a simple lunch even though they knew we needed to get back to the office and 35 minutes of that was waiting for desert. Also, the waitress totally forgot biscuits for the table even though she brought out the special butter for it. At the end of the meal when someone pointed out that we didn't get biscuits we were suprised that she didn't offer to bag some up for us. She was very nice but not terribly efficient. Overall we enjoyed the meal and would definately go back as long as we knew we had lots & lots of time."

I can't remember having a better
business dinner in the past few years. The food was outstanding. The ambiance was quaint and can be appropriate for a business dinner or a romantic evening out. I recommend The Pecan and will be happy to dine there again."

I had the best meal of the year.
Everything was wonderful. I will return."

My husband and I dine at The Pecan
for most of our special occasions, it is our favorite restaurant. The food is the best in the area and the service can't be beat. We love the Tybee Island crab cakes!"
Dined on 3/20/2014
The food was fabulous. A little
pricey so this is somewhere we would only come for a special occasion of with a good Groupon deal. Cedric was our waiter and we can't say enough about him. Just a very pleasant young man. Very professional and he was able to answer all of our questions as this was our first visit. We would absolutely recommend this restaurant."

EXCELLENT SERVICE and EXCELLENT
FOOD!!! Glad to have quality a restaurant on the south side of Atlanta :-)"

Had been planning to go to this
restaurant for a long time. Finally decided to roll the dice and try it for a 1st date with a new friend. The food and the wine was great. The date went so well we shared a slice of Pecan Pie to end the evening."

Stayed at the airport Marriott.
Have seen several reviews which said Pecan was best restaurant on Southside. Don't go there (Southside) often. Wandered in. Ambiance is fine. Friday night and the place was probably 2/3 full so noise was certainly not a problem. Waiter was as nice as he could be, trying very hard. But had the feeling he was on the verge of being out of his comfort zone, but we persevered. Wine list is limited but prices are fair. Enjoyed what we had. We split an antipasto salad which had nothing to do w/antipasto but was actually one of the best salads I have ever had. I had catfish and it was wonderful. My Wife had another fist dish and was not as happy, but said it was ok. Dessert was yummy. Go if in area."
Dined on 2/28/2014
The Pecan is definitely a step up
for the southside dining. We just do not have that much fine food places to pick from. I love the ambience in the old refurbish building. Our second time to the restaurant and we still find the seats to be uncomfortable and, this time the food came out cold. They brought out warmer sides, but it was lukewarm as well. I am beginning to wonder if the food is cook on premises or just warmed up?"
Dined on 3/8/2014
We arrived after dark and had
difficulty locating the restaurant. No lighted sign. However, this was a very pleasantly surprising place. Some interesting specialties and nice southern influence while also exercising creativity. Delicious. Excellent service. Maybe a little over-priced, but a very nice change of pace."
Dined on 1/11/2014
One of my favorites. The menu has
all of the classics like fish and grits, lamb chops and the pecan crusted chicken, then offers great specials. This time I has roasted hen stuffed with spinach and crab meat. So delicious. Will definitely be back."

Loved the food, the service and
the Resturant. A win , win, win."

I will admit, when I initially
arrived at Pecan there was a very unfavorable "glitch". BUT.. Pecan has something that EVERY business establishment needs on its team: a Super Star Employee. And whatever the problem might have been, she stepped in, took control, and served us with such great passion that it overshadowed everything else. If she hadn't gotten us seated and refocused, we may have never experienced the amazing meal we had. Pecan is a gem on the metro-Atlanta culinary scene. And as long as they have the winning combination of excellent food AND service, I'll go back again and Again!"

We enjoyed everything, the food

Another great place in college
park to entertain close to the airport!"
Dined on 2/25/2014
The food and service was good,
however I was disappointed that they were out of lobster tails & bread. It was the day after Valentines day, so I guess everyone ordered lobster. I get that, but to run out of bread too......"

This is a gem in College Park, GA.
Fine dining in a nice setting with attentive and friendly staff. The food is delicious, a fusion between Southern and International fine cuisine. The crab cakes are incredible and so are the lamb chops. The décor is cozy and accommodates couples on a romantic outing or groups, small to large. I enjoy and recommend it."
Dined on 2/8/2014
I live in CP and love the fact
that this establishment is in my "backyard" The service was good and the food was excellent. The vibe is old school warehouse meets classic 19060's dining. White gloves service and the wait staff plays close attention to your request. Mothers Day brunch was excellent as well."
Dined on 7/1/2013
This place is the best of what the
southside has to offer. Think sophisticated comfort food... Conveniently located, easy parking. The ambience and staff are courteous, attentive and on point. Even the house wine is the best of the best. This time I chose the evening special Pom-Pom, a crab and spinach stuffed Cornish hen with asparagus and jasmine rice.... Amazing!!! Perfect for couples and adults seeking a grown and sexy evening out. Please leave the kids at home. This place is not very big and is far too chic to be ruined by snotty noses and high-pitched squeals."

I had come into Atlanta to catch
an early flight and debated heading out for food or eating in. I was really glad I decided to dine out. The Restaurant is close to the Airport hotels, a short shuttle or taxi ride. It is on a charming street and beautifully decorated, The food Choices were great, They are a little pricier but worth it, they serve large portions, I regretted not having enough room for dessert :) . The staff was amazing! I really liked the online reservation option. If I get back to Atlanta I will being revisiting The Pecan!"

Will not hesitate to go back.
Great fine dining and best service. If you are close, do not miss it. If you are not close, make the effort to go!"

This restaurant came highly
recommended to me but we were very disappointed. The level of service was awful and set the tone for the evening. We were overlooked due to our small party. The server did not acknowledge us with our drink orders until 15 minutes after we were seated. We most definitely did not receive the same level of treatment as did to larger party next to us. It took an hour and 15 minutes to receive our entree. The manager on duty apologized, gave us an excuse of the kitchen not being able to keep with the large parties, and offered to discount our bill. The money was not an issue. We were from out of town searching for a nice restaurant to dine at."

The food is expensive but it is
delicious and the service is good too. This is a great restaurant for a special occasion meal."

We discovered The Pecan by way of
a Travel Zoo voucher. We love using deal certificates to try new places. What a wonderful gem! The martini/special cocktail list is great (you MUST try the signature Pecan cocktail!) and the food was delicious! My hubs had the shrimp & grits which were wonderful, and I had the boneless stuffed game hen special which was fabulous. Our only disappointment was our peach cobbler dessert--apparently the oven was on the fritz so it took FOREVER to come and wasn't very good. I suggest a Pecan martini for dessert instead! :) Overall, a place we would definitely return to again and especially for a special occasion."

I was concerned @ first with
bringing 7 older women to this restaurant only because I thought the food would have been to seasoned /fancy for them. Boy.. was I WRONG. They enjoyed every drop, we were able to persuade a couple of them to order a drink from the bar...:-)!"

My friends and I frequent the
Pecan often and they always deliver great service. The food is very very good."
Dined on 1/10/2014
This is a neighborhood gem. The
food is amazing. I have a nut allergy and the waiter notified me of dishes that I should consider. I had the catfish, grits, and greens. What a phenomenal choice. The food was amazing. I finished the meal with the peach cobbler."

Delicious food. Great service.
Brought a special dessert for birthday celebration. Couldn't have been more attentive."
Dined on 12/18/2013
The food was outstanding and the
service matched! Found this restaurant solely through Open Table during an overnight stay in ATL. The seafood (fish, lobster and crab meat) was THE BEST we had ever had in the world. This restaurant exemplifies "fine dining" while being hidden in downtown College Park, GA. If you must stay near the ATL airport overnight, you MUST try the seafood including the fried lobster!"
Dined on 12/21/2013
We found this restaurant last year
and vowed to return. The food is truly extraordinary, upscale southern comfort food. Chef Morrow takes old standards to a refreshing and inspiring new level. It is a niche that I did not know needed filling until the first bite. Nothing disappointed, but some gems include the complimentary pecan corn bread muffins, pecan pie, and curried carrot soup."
Dined on 12/31/2013
I had a great experience at the
Pecan. I was traveling, so I was dining by myself. However, this would be a great place for a date or special occasion. The service was attentive, but not too attentive. The server recommended a few items and they were outstanding. I just wish that I had taken his suggestion for dessert. The dessert that I ordered was good, but not exactly what I was expecting. I'm not blaming the restaurant or the server. I just wanted to let everyone to to trust your server's recommendations. They really do know what they are talking about."
Dined on 12/27/2013
I love the scenery and atmosphere.
Their crab cakes were to die for, and they had some amazing grits!!! I had to take some of those biscuits/corn muffins home because they were so delicious. I can't wait to go back and dine with them."

Food was good, service was good.
Very good experience!"
