Sway's fried chicken far surpassed the well-known, but very disappointing restaurant within walking distance known for their Southern cooking (PP's). Delightful crunch, not greasy, nice delicate flavor, accompanied by mashed potatoes and gravy, all served in cast-iron Staub. Black pepper tagliatelle w/mushrooms, squash, and arugula was flavorful, also. We'd definitely return. Iris was welcoming with her southern charm, recommending entrees. More

Decided to go to Paschal’s restaurant to meet with a friend. The history associated with Paschal’s is great and I wanted to try an Atlanta landmark, not a chain restaurant. We ordered our food, my Dad started with the gumbo which he thoroughly enjoyed and then the catfish ettouffe. He stated that it was remarkable and the shrimp on top of the catfish were large. I initially ordered the shrimp and grits. The gravy was delicious, but the grits were soupy and they quickly whisked then away and replaced it with fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and greens. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMBINATION. I would love to return during my next trip in January and try the shrimp and grits again. I highly recommend this restaurant. Cammy was a great server and all of the staff were professional and wanted make sure that we were pleased with our food and service. Please support this restaurant!!’ More

I dined alone, so I assumed there was an area to just enjoy a meal and not watch the show. However, my only options were to sit at the bar or watch the show. So I made the best of it and met some great people at the table for the show. The chef was great, food was wonderful. Only complaint is the hostess would take a long time to return since the resteraunt became busy. Would return again soon. More
