A wonderful dining option outside the crazy restaurant scene of Buckhead tucked into a corner of a beautiful suburb on a river.

These folks are always hitting on all eight cylinders. We have never been disappointed with any of our numerous visits.

If you like hearing "hey, you guys ready to order?", don't go to Canoe. They do things a little differently.

The experience was great! Our server was so knowledgeable about the menu and all of the food was amazing. I loved the ambience of the place and hoping to go back for brunch instead of dinner so I can get a better view of the river. Next time I also want to start at the outdoor bar for a drink.

I had Thanksgiving dinner with my family at Canoe on Wednesday because I had to work on Thursday. We were really looking forward to a great night together. The staff and the charcuterie board were lovely, but that’s about it. The oysters were drowned in mignonette, so they just tasted like pickles. The roasted pepper sauce on my daughter’s salmon overwhelmed the entire plate, so even her mashed potatoes tasted like bell peppers. My rabbit was good, but nothing to write home about. To top it all off, my brother and I both became violently ill that night (I’ll save you all the details). Overall, the evening was a disappointment.

It turned out too ok be a bit too chilly f o r outdoor dining - but no problem moving us to a great window table. The food was great - the most tender and tasty chicken in my salad! The service was great - especially when I realized I did not have my credit card - I called and they found it and mailed it to me!
Love Canoe - we moved - but try to get there when in Atlanta!

Beautiful day sitting outside on a covered and socially distanced porch along the river was the perfect place to enjoy a tasty brunch. The shrimp salad is huge and delicious. Scones are killer. Smoked salmon on crispy potato cakes are always a favorite. Highly recommend Canoe for brunch.

Brian was our waiter and is the absolute man! Big believer that a waiter who can provide a bit of back and forth banter adds to the overall experience of dinner. Food was great.

Brought my wife here to celebrate her birthday and hearing friends tLk about Canoe. The wait was short since we had reservations. We had a party of 4 and we were all impressed with our server Casey. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. The room was a little too dark for out taste. The Oysters were small, but everyone enjoyed their appetizer. The entree options were just okay. Imybwife and I had the Halibu and It was tasty. We shared my wife’s pumpkin bread pudding. Overall it was good.

Lots of open space between tables, all staff masked and it just felt like a safe place to have a birthday celebration. Enjoyed the oysters and sake infused pear salad. My lamb sirloin was cooked perfectly. Ended with s'mores, Canoe style. What's not to like.

We had never been here before but had heard how wonderful the brunch was so we decided to try it and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and accomodating, the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was excellent. We will definitely come back here for brunch and try a dinner. BTW, the surroundings are so beautiful!
