Very good food, and plenty of it. Service was outstanding for a very busy, Sunday evening. Glad we found it.

We were there on a very busy night , had a reservation and were told to sit in the rocking chairs and they would call us. It was very hard to hear with a piano playing below, but noticed the hostess would walk down the row and call people if they didn't come right up. evidently this didn't happen for us. After 30 min we went to check and the girl at the computer was quite rude and told us we were called and they had checked the bar (we were not at the bar) and they had moved on. We were luckily seated at this time. Our waiter was busy, spent time chatting up his larger parties, but had little time for a party of two. Did not ask if we wanted anything to drink and took our order and moved on. Realized after we were done eating that we did not get the side dishes that are supposed to come with each meal when we noticed them being put on the other tables as people received their dinners. Food was wonderful! But service, for us, was non existent.

Food was great, as usual, but service was terrible. Waited way to long for drinks and dinner. Had to ask for the basket of bread, never got the side dishes, and didn't see our waiter again until we got the check. Bad first impression for my business associate, but I know I will give it another try because the food is really good and I have had good experiences there before. Bad night, I guess.

We arrived on time for a 6:30 reservation and were seated quickly. The owner, Guy, wakes us to our seat and chatted for about 5 minutes. He sent us a sample of the catfish to try. That was our favorite part. The salad bar is just ok and the dinner portions are huge. Luckily we knew about the “shared plate” and decided to go that route. Neither one of us were able to finish our shared portion. We did order dessert but were too full to enjoy. Great comfort type foods, just way too much.

Made a reservation on Zomato and were seated five minutes early despite the fact that there were at least 20 people who arrived before us and were waiting for a table. Definitely recommend having a reservation.
Hostess and the waitress were both friendly and the waitress always had a smile.
Previous reviews were mixed concerning the food which seems difficult to comprehend as we thought the fried chicken and the ribs were very good. In fact, the ribs were outstanding and I am a big fan of BBQ anything. The sauce on the ribs was also amazing, some of the best I have ever had.
The portions of meat are big, three pieces of chicken for the fried chicken meal and a short rack of ribs and two pieces of chicken on the combo.
SO, go light on the salad bar, or at least on the bread and corn bread while you wait for the entree if you hope to enjoy all the meat. The peach margarita is also really good, but a bit spendy.
Prices a little more than I would have expected, but you are downtown and right next to the AmericasMart. Definitely would recommend this restaurant

The food was wonderful, the drinks were strong and our waiter, Terrence Griffin, was outstanding!! He gave attention to detail yet was still fun and a cut-up. I overlooked the automatic gratuity on our check and tipped what I thought was appropriate. He noticed that I didn't see the tip was included and brought my check back to adjust. His honesty landed him an even bigger tip! I will definitely be back to try some other yummy dishes!

One word...AWESOME!!! My wife had talked about this place for the 25+ years we’ve been together. We were staying close by and happened to see it on Open Table, so I booked it. It was everything she had made it out to be. Richard, our waiter was over the top and made it feel like we were at his house. Of course, all of the staff made us feel at home. The food was as good as the staff was welcoming, but be prepared to loosen your belt or walk out with doggie boxes. I’m a Pittypats fan and we will be back...

Went to Pitty Pat's with some business collegues. The food was outstanding (especially the fried chicken). The side board which accompanies each entree is also a standout... don't miss the sweet and sour pickled watermelon rind; it's strangely awesome. The atmosphere is very laid back and old school southern. Definitely a nice break from typical downtown Atlanta.

 (Mississippi)·Dined on December 1, 2017

What a letdown. I had heard about this landmark for years. I had reviewed the menu and was excited about trying the deliciously described dishes. Our party was seated upstairs which is actually street level. There is a lot of memorabilia from “Gone with the Wind,” but that is where the allure ended. Every entree comes with collards, black-eyed peas, a variety bread basket, and salad bar. I would rate the collards as average and the peas as poor. The salad bar is a selection of prepared salads: carrot salad, garbanzo bean salad, chicken salad, marinated tomatoes, and pickled beets, watermelon, and okra. I ordered the shrimp and grits. The grits were good, made with two kinds of cheese, but the dish was served lukewarm and not worthy of more than a three star review. Someone else ordered the salmon and described it as okay. The 3rd person in our party ordered fried chicken. The waitress made a mistake with the order, so she had to resubmit the correct dish. The fried chicken is cooked when ordered, so his meal did not arrive before the rest of us had finished eating. A very disappointing dinner, and I probably will not return here.

Will never go back to or recommend this restaurant to anyone. The server was fantastic. I don't know what they did to the chicken, the crust cooked off of it and was hanging in long clumps. The mashed potatoes were so cold the felt like they came out of the freezer and had big hunks of raw pieces in them. I detest raw potatoes. The server tried very hard to make it right. I asked for the check and when the server was away had the bus boy take away the disgusting food. We were going out of town and selected this restaurant because I work next door. When we arrived at our hotel, we ate a turkey sandwich and chicken quesadilla that were a thousand times or more better than Pitty Pats. Kentucky Fried Chicken would have been a better inner. I wasted almost a hundred dollars with the tip. I actually do not count the tip as a waste because the waiter was outstanding.
