McKendrick's Steakhouse - Perimeter Center Ratings and Reviews
The service was stellar, the food was very good, it was too loud to hear what the person across from me was saying and we were at a 4-top, I can't imagine how isolated the conversation would have been in a table any larger. Definitely the men's business dinner scene.
Food was very good. My only complaint was that when the server told me about the surf & turf special, she didn't mention that it had a bernaise sauce on it (I hate bernaise!). So when it came I scraped off as much as I could and just ate it. I wish they had other steak sauce options other than A1.
For the price, CHOPS LOBSTER BAR , is much better. My Prime Rib was not medium rare and was just okay (Stoney River is better and less expensive). My date loved her Salmon and I agree that was cooked and tasted very good (But this is a Steakhouse.). The bread before dinner is plain, the butter hard. Crab cakes were 2 small ones and pretty good. Shrimp cocktail stingy on pieces (3), fried crispy oysters very small. Desserts of Key lime pie and Bannana bread pudding were pretty good.
Our server was over attentive leaning over the wall watching while waiting for something to do. Was seriously contemplating asking the management if he could move so that we didn't feel like he was watching us eat.
My date and I enjoy trying different Steakhouses in the area and so far Chops is tops from the bread, to the crab cake , sides and entree for the same cost.
1. CHOPS LOBSTER BAR
2. STONEY RIVER ( Gets the edge over McKendricks due to prices/value)
4. Oak Steakhouse (Avalon)
5. Pampas Steakhouse
6. Kenneth Rathburn
Next on the list....Bones
Loved the scallops. The center cut steak was just OK. Our server recommended the asparagus as a side, and it was plain, I don't even think there was any seasoning or butter so not sure why that was recommended. I would recommend it, but there are better steakhouses in Atlanta.
Upon arriving at our first visit to McKendrick’s we knew we were in for a treat. We were greeted by a friendly hostess, the manager who went out of his way to acknowledge us, and our very professional, knowledgeable server, Mark.
The ambiance was perfect for a special occasion, a date or a business dinner. My husband and I had traveled from Baton Rouge to Stone Mountain for his Highland Games Competition and post-competition he was hungry for a good steak. “Good” doesn’t even begin to describe what we were presented with. He chose the long bone-in Ribeye and I had the Veal Chop. I will normally order mine rare knowing that it almost always comes to the table at least a little over cooked. Mark assured me that the chef would prepare it to a perfect medium-rare and that I needent worry. Both entrees were cooked to a perfect temperature, beautifully seared to a light to medium char and seasoned to perfection. We both commented that it was one of the best (if not THE best) steaks we could ever remember having. We paired them the augratin potatoes that could stand on their own as a meal and a wonderful bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon.
We were perfectly content at this point, but there was more to come. We finished the night’s meal off with a slice of their amazing Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, a double espresso for me and regular coffee for my husband. I’ve had the pleasure of tasting a number of Kentucky Derby Pies in my 47 years and this one was absolute perfection. If I had not been so near a food coma and thinking more clearly, I would have ordered another slice to have the following day before we left to come back to South Louisiana.
I can’t say enough about the food, the management or the servers and staff of McKendrick’s Steakhouse. We will most definitely be back if we get anywhere within 100 miles.
It was a business Saturday evening and even though I made reservations, I was certain that I would have a long wait.
The hostess and wait staff was extremely accommodating. We sat down in a timely fashion and once we placed the order the appetizers arrived shortly after. The wait staff was friendly and considerate of our time constraints. The entree was excellent. I will be dining there again.
The service was impeccable, and the food outstanding. I had the Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer, honestly the best I have ever had anywhere. Often the other ingredients overwhelm the oysters, but these were perfect. My wife has an allergy and they made a fried oysters appetizer especially taking into account her needs, and they were great as well. The cocktails and wine were wonderful. We both had the filet mignon. It was melt in your mouth perfection! Even the bread that was brought out first, the side of fried okra we ordered (a Southern delight!) and the ample baked potatoes were delicious. The meal was worth every penny. We enjoyed our visit very much and will definitely be returning!
The servers and staff at McKendrick's always make you feel special whether it's a special occassion or not. The steaks melt in your mouth and the sides are delicious. They have great cocktails and an extensive wine list. It is our favorite restaurant in Atlanta!
We are from Connecticut and came to Atlanta to attend an October 6th Friday night wedding. On Saturday evening, the 7th, we were looking for a quality steakhouse for dinner of which there appeared to be a number of. Based on the number of great reviews we settled on McKendrick's. We were NOT disappointed with our choice. Our meals were outstanding and our server, I believe her name was Angela, made a great evening even better. If we ever make our way to Atlanta again, McKendrick's will be a definite stop for us.
Expensive but you get what you pay for. Food was excellent and service impeccable. Sides are enough for two, easily. Steak was excellent, but portions are so large you may wish to come for a salad and an appetizer, rather than an entree. Salad, entree and one side and couldn't hold desert, although wanted to.
Restaurant is lovely inside , very romantic dinner spot. Our server was average... he didn't not check with us for refills , etc. he didn't ask why we didn't eat the appetizers or bread. The bread that was served was wheat bread and a raisin bread , with dinner. We ordered she crab soup, which had no flavor, I only ate a few spoons of it and my husband had a crab cake, it was good but had a sauce on it that was cold.. we were embarrassed to ask if he sauce was supposed to be cold on the hot crab cake...he didn't eat it all either... no one asked us why we didn't eat the 15.00 a piece appetizer...
We both ordered steak I had the filet, it was cooked correctly but not anything out of the ordinary, my husband had a ribeye it was also average. The steaks were ala carte , salads not included, and no side item included. We ordered au gratin potatoes to share... they were not good , we didn't eat those either... my husband did have 2 bottled craft beers and I had two cocktails. The bill for 2 appetizers 2 steaks 2 beers 2 cocktails 1 order of potatoes was
174.00 ...... we are frequent travelers to Atlanta for business. We shall not return and would not recommend to anyone that we know... even with mediocre food for this price I would have expected at the very least, excellent service.
