This was my favorite restaurant. I loved going here and getting the delicious biscuits, wonderful lobster bisque, great steak, crab cakes, mashed potatoes, and green beans with pecans. I was very sad that I ate my last meal here on 5/25/16 before they closed down for good. It is a real shame...this was a one of a kind restaurant and it will be missed.

Our anniversary dinner was at one of our favorite restaurants on the last night they were open. In spite of the imminent closing, they maintained their usual excellent cuisine and service. We will miss Chequers.

Unfortunately this was our first visit to Chequers only to learn that this location would be closing the following week. Although I was hoping I wouldn't love it, they proved me wrong. The food was excellent and the service was very good as well. We definitely would have come back for another visit.

We visited this restaurant twice in the same month. We absolutely love it, I would go there as often as possible.. Unfortunately on our recent visit with our friends we were informed that they were closing the restaurant at the end of this month.. We are so disappointing to hear this. It is by far the best restaurant in our area and draws a wonderful crowd.. ( I simply don't understand as they seem to always be busy.

Went there for Mothers day. Nice atmosphere. Servers seemed to be over stretched but we were sitting next to a table with a large party.Food was good but I have had better. No major complaints. Just not as good as the Palm, comparable to Ruth Cris. The mom of the family enjoyed it so thats what matters!

We are regulars at Chequers and love their Sunday brunch. As usual, the food was amazing. Unfortunately, we were seated by the kitchen and the constant movement of the swinging doors proved distracting for our family's celebratory meal. Even still, we will return for what we believe is metro Atlanta's best Sunday brunch.

We like going to brunch for Mother's Day, Checkers has always had a nice brunch, it was better in the old location. This year we had a 1pm res. got seated right at 1pm, but the brunch buffet trays were always low or empty, the Omelet station is in a tough place and long lines (slow), meat station also is in a tough place, short people would have a tough time getting served. And they need to put some Lobster in the Lobster mac&cheese, and crab in the crab/shrimp stuffing (mostly filler). We overpaid for the quality, like I said their older location by Perimeter had much better quality. And did I mention we saw a waiter grab a cookie and stuff it in his mouth. And desserts weren't replenished either. The price per person was to expensive for the quality. And they should keep restrooms cleaner and in working order (sink faucet not working). It was a nice place and great food once before and I think it can be again, they need to tighten up the quality. We won't be back next year unless I hear they changed.

Do not use this review as a report card for this restaurant.
We have been here for dinners and were terribly happy. We thought this Mothers day Buffet would compare to last years. Unfortunately it was terribly disappointing. Buffet was poorly stocked and the three tables around us were only able to meagerly fill their plates once. For 70 bucks I expected better.

I'm not a buffet person and wouldn't have gone for Mother's Day if I knew it was buffet only. It was good but I was surprised that there was no fresh fish on the buffet for a seafood house. Peel your own shrimp is not something I do In a restaurant.

I enjoyed the majority of what I ate. The food was decent but the service was my problem. Initially he was great but my sister used her debit card to pay for half of the ticket which was supposed to be $50.68. My mother left a tip. The waiter initially swiped her card for $50.68, then later it showed a deduction from her account for $60.68. That's theft by taking in my book. Still a great place to eat. Just take CASH!

We had company in town for their birthday and Mothers Day. We were not able to make reservations for 10 but when we arrived they were able to give us 2 tables right next to each other. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. My out of town guests had visited a few of the other "must visit" restaurants for "southern cooking" but they were disappointed with every other location they went. However, they felt that their Mothers Day brunch at Chequers made up for all of the other bad experiences they had this past weekend. My favorites were the made to order omelet, the bread pudding, and the chocolate fountain.

we love this place, our local "go-to" restaurant. Sadly we learned that they are closing in a month or so. Supposedly another restaurant taking it's place. Sad to see them leave our area, and the Atlanta area. We were so excited when they moved to this location just a few short years ago. Love their Tuna Poke, the Pretzel encrusted fish, many dishes. And the Calamari.
