    Having an early flight the following day, we decided to stay at a hotel nearby. The restaurant had a lot more atmosphere than I expected.the server was friendly. The wine was great. We were both satisfied with our meal (pork chop, lamb chop, appetizer assortment). Located in something of a food dessert, this restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. It would be a great place to have dinner if you have a long layover.

    The food at the Pecan is very good. I especially enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits. At the time that I made the reservations, I stated that we were celebrating a birthday. We displayed the birthday cards on the table that (based on his comments) caught the attention of one of the servers. I thought that my husband's birthday would be acknowledged with a small dessert; however, it was not. I would have preferred a table in the smaller dining area as opposed to the table along the wall. The wall tables are so close together that our private conversation, or the next table's conversation, was not so private. Overall, I enjoyed the evening and I will return, just not for a special birthday.

    Sean was an excellent waiter. He took his time in explaining the specials for the day. He made some excellent recommendations since I only eat seafood. Very attentive to details and kept our drinks (Peach tea and Homemade Lemonade) filled. The blackened salmon was awesome!! It was served with asparagus and sweet potato purée. VERY TASTY!! Since this restaurant is so close to our (layover) hotel, I will return.

    We dined recently on a Saturday at 6:30 and Wednesday at 6:00 - the Wednesday was much quieter - no children. A number of business people vs families and large groups. We prefer the quiet setting. However, both times the food and service were great - Great value for the $$

    I had purchased a groupon dinner for 4 here, had not used in allotted time frame so decided to use residual value for dinner with my wife. Since I travel alot, I get a chance to see many different types of restaurants. This one stands out. We started with a cocktail for me and glass of wine for my wife, great wine list with moderate by the glass options. The Broushetta appetizer we shared was excellent, I had a bowl of their lukewarm (like it was supposed to be) Asparagus and bean soup while my wife had a great side salad. For Main Course I had the spicey Blackened Shrimp on spiced up grits while my wife had the Cornish Game Hen. Both were EXCELLENT! No room for desert, we did put this on the list for a revisit.

    We have eaten at this restaurant for a few years. Love the food. Love the ambiance. After 32 years of marriage this is our " date night" spot. We have always had great service. This time our server was not as good as some we had in the past. She greeted us well and was very friendly But. I had to ask several times for her to refill my water glass. And we never received our bread. On the plus side, our server did give us a little extra bread in my to go box. Not a deal breaker. We will definitely continue to frequent The Pecan restaurant.

    I noted in my reservation it was our 1st time dining here and a birthday celebration. I felt annoyed immediately when we were sat at a table right by the kitchen door which loudly swung open and close every few seconds as servers came in and out- especially when there were plenty of other tables available in the adjoining more dimly lit hence more romantic room. I am a server so I HATE to be that person to ask to change tables but as it was my birthday I did anyways. So it was a rocky start, and there were many service flaws throughout the meal- but the food was EXCELLENT and Jonathon did send us out an ice cream on the house at the end which was a nice touch- praline ice cream which we dumped right on top of our pecan pie- yum!

    Saul restaurant on Atlanta Eats television show. My wife saw the pecan pie and had to go. Went there on a Saturday at opening about six. The food was superb I had the shrimp and grits. It was the best ship shrimp and grits I've ever had in my life and I have tried that entrée all over the United States and abroad. That was the best hands down. My wife had the salmon and she said that was the best salmon she ever had. She really enjoy the pecan pie. The only downside to my visit was that I wanted a slice of sweet potato pie to take home but it was not ready and we had to leave after waiting 15 minutes for it. Overall I would recommend this restaurant and give it five stars.

    I thought that the restaurant was situated strategically so as to enhance the expectation of the customers. This means that the expectations were exceeded considering the location and the interior design. The personal was quite good with knowledge of the menu and the knowledge of extemporaneous aspects pertaining to the components of the menu. I was overall pleased.

    This is the best resturant meal I have had in a long time. When we arrived at 6:00 there were only a few tables occupied. By the time we left it was full but the noise level was not bad. My friend and I shared a wedge salad- it was great. The blue cheese dressing was tangy with a bit of sweetness. It was a perfect size to share. For my entree I had one of the specials- a grilled pork chop. It was being served with jasmine rice but I asked for risotto which came with another special- it was no problem. The friend had another special- stuffed chicken. We shared the peach cobbler for desert. With one glass of wine the bill was $80 plus tip. If you are near airport coming or going or not- this is worth going out of way for!!!
