The steak filet with mashed potatoes and wilted greens is an excellent menu choice.

We had a party of five at the height of the lunch rush and our server was slammed but he never missed a beat. Also, the man we took for the manager was all over the place backing everyone up, we all took notice of the teamwork. Took great care of us. And the food was top notch! The Cajun shrimp and grits was fantastic and the gumbo was a meal unto itself. Definitely a Midtown highlight

We had a wonderful experience! It was nice outside, so we opted to sit on the 2nd level with the window open! It was just the two of us up there, but both of us agreed that it’s s nice spot for a party! He had the Tavern Dip with yummy fries salted to perfection which he said was so delicious minus the jus for dipping😊. I had a cup of gumbo (should’ve ordered a bowl😋) and a veggie flatbread pizza with marinara instead of chimichuri and it was lip smackin great!! We’ll be back for sure.

This is one of my favorite taverns in the Midtown neighborhood. The food is great and service is terrific. They always have good music and strike a good balance between a sports bar and a great place for food!

Went here with a friend after the Peach Bowl to watch Alabama in the Cotton Bowl. We made reservations which was a good idea because it was kind of crowded but great atmosphere. The food was rgreat and the service was really good. Our server was friendly and attentive even though it was crowded. When you think of a sports bar you don't always have the highest expectation for the food and we just wanted somewhere to watch the game but everything was great about this spot. I'd definitely go back whenever I'm in Atlanta.

The pimento cheese poppers were great, best thing I ate all night. For dinner I had the brisket sliders, they were good but not great. We shared the buffalo chicken rolls, they weren't awful, but were very bland, no spiciness at all. We were a table of 4 and managed to snag this table that was in an alcove with it's own TV. It felt like we were in our own private room. Overall I'd go back, it was s decent place.

Overall, the location was great. The food was “so-so”, we were disappointed that we could only prefer from the late night menu. Upon booking at a specific time, that should be shared online or via the open table site.

Server seemed forgetful. Drinks and food came out at random times. Since a business meal some food sat for a while going cold while others waited for their food. Then the food wasn’t as ordered. Food was good pub food and our experience could’ve been just the server but she appeared to write the entire order down so it just felt odd.

Brought the family downtown for a night at ASO. Found this great place for a meal before the show. Great choices on the menu so everyone could find their fav food - from salads to pasta, and chicken or burgers. We mentioned that we were on the way to a show and our server made sure she checked back after the food was served to ensure that we had what we needed and had our check on a timely basis. Great service, great food. We'll definitely be back.

My son and I stopped here while visiting Georgia Tech. The food was good, nothing spectacular, but I'd go back again. It's a fun atmosphere with lots of TVs for watching sports. And they had good drink specials and relatively cheap beer. I would not go here if you wanted quiet conversation.
