We finally were able to come to Antebellum for dinner after having moved to the area a year ago. It was our first date since Covid!! And it did not disappoint! I loved our server - she was warm and embodied the restaurant's mission to provide Southern hospitality. Our drinks were amazing, I love their fun cocktail menu. We got the foie gras creme brulee appetizer - wow! We also got the fried green tomato app and I have to say, it was the best FGT dish I've ever had. The bacon jam and fried egg put it over the top, along with the mimosa ice. For my entree, I had the halibut and it was amazing - all the flavors worked so well together. I think what we took away from our experience is how creative the chef is with mixing different flavors, using unusual ingredients (my husband's bourbon cocktail was garnished with a koolaid infused pickle! But it was so good, how strange is that?) The layers of flavors and use of heat, vinegar, sweet, savory - all of these flavors were executed so beautifully in all of our dishes. This is my new favorite restaurant and I can't wait to come back! Oh and don't miss the espresso martini for dessert - WOW. We were too stuffed for a full dessert, but I could have enjoyed several of those martinis - so smooth and delicious! Overall, highly recommend - for a date night, girls night out, or a special occasion.

My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary here. We couldn’t have chosen a better place. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was out of this world!

We were even treated to a special Champagne toast, but because my wife was pregnant the quick-thinking staff member got her ginger ale (my wife LOVES ginger ale).

This is easily the beat food in Flowery Branch and possibly NorthEast Georgia. We loved our experience here and will be back.

Have always enjoyed a great meal here. The food and the service is excellent. The only problem we have is the noise level. Energetic is not the appropriate euphemism for is an annoyance. There are no soft sound absorbent surface in the dining room. No curtains, no carpets or rugs to absorb the sounds of people talked across tables, or clanking dished and silverware. A few minor steps to lower the noise level would make the dining exercise more memorable in a more positive sense.

Our server was excellent in almost every way, but she kept asking "How are WE doing" Are WE ready to order? Have WE decided on dessert? All four of us in the group thought it was a very strange way to relate to customers...as if she was including herself in the questions she asked.
Perhaps that was a part of her training as a server with your restaurant?
Otherwise, she was grand!!

What a fantastic experience! My wife and I were going to Gainesville for a meeting and decided to find a restaurant near there and saw the Antebellum on Open Table. Very nice quiet restaurant. The food was outstanding and there was not a dish that we had that there was a problem. My wife had a perfectly cooked salmon and she had the fried green tomatoes and salad while I had the grilled bread, salad and the wild shrimp with creamy grits. My wife said that the toffee cake was to die for. The only "complaint" that I would have is that there was too much food. Maybe, I should have skipped the grilled bread. our waitress, Charity, was very good. Helpful with suggestions and very attentive. But for the fact that they were three hours away from where we live and so would not be a regular spot for us, we would be back there the next time we spend any time in Atlanta. Our compliments and praise to the chef and the staff for a wonderful experience!

I don’t usually write any reviews but this place by far is the best food I have ever had. I can confidently tell anyone that this food will be the best place that you will have. The chef doesn’t have a big menu because he perfects every food item on the menu. This place is worth every penny and we will be back a lot. So, don’t look at prices and just go have the food, you will no be disappointed! Also, don’t leave without having desert! By far the best end to your night!

Salads were great, fresh and not too much dressing. Tenderloin shoulder was outstanding, so tender and flavorful. One of our party had salmon, crisp on the outside and perfectly done on the inside, a perfect blend of flavors. Another had scallops, and had 7 or 8 scallops, another winner. We were too full to try dessert, but all of the options sounded yummy. We will definitely save room on our next visit

Antebellum is the type restaurant that is perfect for a date night, special occasion, birthday, business meal or ust when you are in the mood for amazing food, service and ambiance. During the entire meal our server was very attentive but did not hover, I have diet restrictions and all my needs were met without making me feel I was a problem customer.
The food was absolutely delicious we have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANTEBELLUM.

We have been here several times and experienced great food, service, and drinks. Our last experience was subpar food for the price, but drinks and dessert was still awesome. The server this time was slightly stiff and not very welcoming, but this was the first time we experienced this.

Very nice restaurant and a hidden jewel for sure. Everything was perfect. The staff are very friendly and professional. We were left with the impression that the staff are one big family. They all worked in sync with each other. Our waiter was wonderful and providing great info about the various menu items. All of his recommendations were on spot! Highly recommend this restaurant.

Food and service was excellent. My only comment is related to the sound level. Sound is too loud. More noise baffling to reduce sound is needed. Otherwise, it is one of my favorite restaurant in the area.
