    We went the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The steak here, in our opinion, is the best in Atlanta. We've been to all the major steakhouses in Atlanta, and McKendrick's is consistently the best. In all the many years we've eaten here, we've never once had a bad meal. Great service, great food - what more could you want?

    Went there on Thanksgiving night. We had reservations but still had to wait 40 to 45 minutes to be seated--but not just us. There were several people waiting 40 to 45 minutes. Then they ran out of the thanksgiving dinner. Honestly, I was through at that point. The waiter seemed to have favorites. I noticed he spent more time at certain table than others. As for the food, I ordered the grilled shrimp with the sweet chili sauce. Absolutely nothing special about it. I could have made that dish at home, but they charged me over $40 for 5 or 6 shrimps and then $13 for the house salad. Absolutely insane. I don't mind paying for my meals but at least don't insult me. I could have taken that $40 and gone to Whole Foods and made the entire dish for 50% less. Between the long wait and the scanty food portion, I wouldn't recommend this location. It might be better during non-holiday hours but I wouldn't take a chance--only because of the food portions. Had they given more, I would have understood about the holiday hours. But to me that was like adding insult to injury.

    The food was great as always. Marcus our server could’ve been better. Communication was passive and there was no attempt to connect or be personable. Also our reservation was for 6pm but we didn’t get seated until 6:55pm. Hopefully next thanksgiving they will do a better job with planning.

    The service was awful, but the food was fairly good. We had a reservation on Thanksgiving, and they were running a bit behind. This was okay but once we were seated the waiter was awful. The waiter was a little Asian guy in the back towards the wine cabinet. We had to ask him to clean table, we had to ask for drinks, and he NEVER checked on us. Overall, I think the restaurant is only okay at best. For the price you would expect better service.

    Overall our meal and experience was very good dining experience. The calamari appetizer in our opinion was over salty for us, French onion soup and crap cakes were excellent. Steaks were excellently seasoned and cooked. Presentation of plates was good. The main item I would complain about is feel the restaurant was under staffed for servers, server was excellent but with the volume of people dining servers were in able to be as attentive to quests as I expect for a fine dining experience, my opinion. Overall I would highly recommend Mckendrick’s and would go back when back in Atlanta area.

    We have gone to McKendricks for over 15 years and are always pleased with their food, service and overall ambiance. They pride themselves in giving a high quality experience with a high quality product. Their steaks are delicious but they offer so much more variety for those who would prefer fish or a salad. From the very beginning, our go to dessert has been their turtle pie, a delicious ice cream pie. The staff are absolutely wonderful and their knowledge of the menu and the wine list is exemplary. This is our special occasion or celebratory restaurant in the Atlanta area.

    We were in town visiting family and this was our second visit to this beautiful restaurant. Our server Antonio was a true pro. He was helpful and friendly, yet unobtrusive. The specials and sides were explained and I couldn’t resist the roasted butternut squash. The steaks and scallops were superb! Three of us ordered Filets. We were moaning with pleasure!

    Destination dinner site for us as our name is also McKendrick. Celebrated our 18th anniversary with a very fine dining experience at McKendrick's. The interior was not pretentious but rather very elegant and classy. Nothing over the top or too fancy, just a quality, white linen steakhouse. Food was superb, service was impeccable and ambiance was exactly what you'd expect for a nice dinner out. We will return again if ever in the Atlanta area.

    We celebrated our 10th anniversary here, and McKendricks is always such a scrumptious steak restaurant. I’m a native of Atlanta and have been coming here forever and a day even after I moved away from Dunwoody. My wife had the scallops, which she thought was so delicious. My steak was also top notch. The lobster tail was so good and such a great treat. The lobster Mac and cheese was impeccable. The service and attention that we received was so wonderful! We will continue to come back to McKendricks for their so tasty food and excellent service!

    I have not eaten here in a couple years. Sadly, this restaurant isn’t what it used to be but it was a Friday night so maybe weekday business is better? Their chairs are worn out and we had to sit in couple of them to find ones that weren’t sunken in the middle. Crab cake was dried out. Salads had too much dressing, you don’t need to put cheese that hardens on top of creamed spinach. Lobster Mac and cheese was basically missing the lobster. I didn’t have a steak but they looked ok. Cocktails were good. They are too quick to clean up. Seems someone was always removing something from the table. Doubt I’ll be back. Sorry

    These folks are awesome! We have been dining here regularly for over 25 years and have never been disappointed. For our last visit we were celebrating wife’s birthday and they left her a beautiful vase of flowers for her to take home! Who does that?! Attention to details (all of them) is their hallmark, in my opinion. Always looking forward to our next visit.

    The ambience, the service, and the food are all five star. We always get a dozen oysters, particularly the pink lady, they are presented perfectly, and always taste good. The side dishes are all really good, can’t go wrong. We usually get steak, but had the monkfish last night and it was perfect. Definitely a special restaurant with a unique ambience for special occasions, or regular dining, they really put customer service as their number one priority and also the quality of their food.

    This was our first time eating here and it will NOT be our last! The food was unbelievable and quite frankly the best meal ive eaten from a restaurant in Atlanta (I've lived here for 9 years now). Steak and sides were cooked to literal perfection and I'm big on service when I eat out and our wait team was top notch. Price was reflective of their quality and I had no problem paying them. We'll be back.
