I have been coming to Old Vinings Inn since I was a young man and it never disappoints! The food and service seem to continuously improve. Great job!
We’ve been coming here for about 25 years and have always loved it. Tonight we were treating our granddaughter and her boyfriend to dinner and couldn’t have been more disappointed. The food was second rate at best and some of it looked and tasted like it was from last week! I know Covid has taken a toll on the restaurant business, but, this was not a cheap meal. After bragging so much about how great it was we definitely feel cheated. But, the worst part was that our granddaughter felt sick after the appetizer and couldn’t even eat her meal. 😞
Tip notch food and service. Love the music too!
The food and service keep getting better and better. I
Love the new items!
Loved their outside dining. Food was delicious. The rolls were wonderful. Quaint and simple but very nice. I'd always prefer the outside after having peeked inside.
My boyfriend and I went for Sunday brunch and it took almost 30 min to get our omelettes and his order was completely wrong. We had to wait another 15-20 minutes for his correct omelette to be made. We were a little disappointed.
Sunday Brunch for 2 adults: Shrimp n Grits, Fried Green Tomato appetizer, Heritage Eggs Benadict, and Bloody Marys. Tasty and filling! Parking lot is small. Maybe you can Uber there during busy times. Make reservations for Sunday brunch to get a table.
The food was good, staff was great and the GM came to check on our experience.
Require masks for show, hostess is not in the correct profession. Food was good although no wine by the glass which is odd.
Food was just ok. They served ketchup with crabcakes. Server was either very inexperienced or indifferent. Service was slow. We have had crabcakes at Houston’s, Paces & Vine, C&S, and Canoe, and these crabcakes are definitely at the bottom of the list, yet the same price as the other places or more expensive. No sales of wine by the glass was annoying. I wanted red, my wife wanted white, yet only half bottles were available. And no menus ? Yet the internet didn’t work very well, so only one of our phones was able to connect to their online menu. Very frustrating. We have been eating here for 15-20’years, but probably won’t be back. It is much worse than it was just six months ago
Good food, nice atmosphere, servers with good personalities.
Excellent customer service and the best shrimp and grits!
This was my 2nd time here for brunch. Our server was not overly friendly. Even with masks on you could sense no smile. I ordered the blue plate 1 meat with 2 sides. The menu states you can choose your meat and sides from the list. She told me that with meatloaf it came with green beans and mashed potatoes, or I could change them for an up charge of $2 per side. I didn’t remember the menu (online) stating that, but I didn’t want to create a fuss so I just went with the beans and potatoes. Since there is not a paper menu, it is up to the customer to search online and the app could be more user friendly in the mobile device. Nevertheless all of our food was excellent. However I just revisited the menu, and it does state to pick your two sides. I am disappointed in the server and her response to me.
The server I had the first time was excellent. Very friendly and helpful.
Excellent food and service!
Was a cute venue for date night. Awesome server and the shrimp and grits, salmon cakes and calamari were amazing. The dill dip for cakes and sauce for calamari were great. Jamaican old fashion is a sweet drink way to go!
I eat there frequently. Food, service, and atmosphere never disappoints.
I’ve been twice since the Pandemic, in April with friends and they enjoyed it. I suggester it to another for brunch and she was very disappointed in parking, out of food (including their special and waited a very long time fir food. I just went back last week with the friends I went with in April and it was very good although they were out of food. If you look at the menu before you go and see something you like, call to check to see if it’s available. Also Old Vinings Inn could change their menu until they figure out better supply and demand issues since the pandemic. Still have to wear a mask, temperature check and have to ask for a menu as they have “e-menus”. All in all good food but be patient and flexible
Hate to leave a good review lest this little secret break out. Very nice selection of food and wines. Great meal. Great service. Great value.
Great food. Great service. Nice portions and nice setting.
My mom, daughter and I ate on the patio. I schedule reservation for the incorrect number of people, but the Hostess was more than understanding and accommodating, and made sure we still had a table. Dwany was our sever! He had a great knowledge of the menu and was very attentive. Food presentation was great and came out in a timely manner. All the staff that we interacted with were friendly. Will definitely be back.
I’ve driven past the Old Vinings Inn almost every day for the past year, and I feel like an idiot that I’m just now discovering this place! The Old Vinings Inn is full of charm, character, and ambience. The food was delightful southern fare, the pricing was very reasonable, and I will definitely be back. I met a friend for brunch, and we kept saying over and over “why have we never been here before?” In a city full of flashy fast paced restaurants and long waits, the Old Vinings Inn is the kind of place that helps you slow down and enjoy life a little more. This is my new go-to brunch spot!
We were staying in Vinings for a weekend in town staycation and had a blast at this gem. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the outdoor porch seating, especially during COVID. The servers wore masks and gloves as well. Everything qe ordered was delicious and we want to come back for more. It's very cute and quaint. Our server Abi was the best!
Excellent food and service was top notch. Love this place.
I love this charming historic place. The food and service are excellent. This is a hidden gem.
Nice southern menu, great deck, very friendly wait staff.
ordered medium hamburger,it was over well done..Fried green tomatoes were mostly breading,very little tomato
Very nice porch for diners who wish to eat outdoors. As of Sunday brunch on May 16, they were still checking temps of guests and asking guests to wear masks in public areas of restaurants.
Nice wine list and very good food. Lovely atmosphere.
Dwani was an absolute delight as our server. I will come back to the Old Vining inn again and again. The food was excellent and they took care of our large group very well.
We celebrated our anniversary and I can say it was one of the best nights we have had coming off the pandemic. The food was fabulous and the staff was so friendly and welcoming and warm!
We will definitely be back with friends and family!
Great celebration! The food and service made it even more special!
Excellent food and service.
Adequate spacing among tables
Old Vinings Inn is one of our favorites. The food and ambiance is absolutely excellent. Our less than five star rating was due to the extremely slow service from our waitress.
Upon reflection, I'm guessing the restaurant is having difficulty hiring help due to competition with government's stimulus and unemployment benefits.
Everything about Old Vinings Inn is superb. Food, service, ambiance. This place is an original! This restaurant is an an anachronism and represents what great restaurants used to be in contrast to the proliferation of large corporate chains. I applaud the staff for continuing to provide this kind of experience in today’s challenging environments.
Best. Mother’s Day. Ever.
The starters were luke warm. A bread basket was offered but didn’t arrive so we had to ask for it. No lemon for the calamari which hadn’t been seasoned. We ask for salt and pepper which eventually arrived. The main courses were brought out before our starter plates had been cleared. We had to ask for more cutlery which took more time to arrive so mains getting colder.
The menu is not cheap so I would expect decent crockery and cutlery. The crockery is old and very unremarkable and the cutlery awful. The everyday cutlery we use at home is nicer that what they give you.
I expected better ...
Always great food and great service. Support local businesses
Food was tasty but shy of filling the stomach.
The bathrooms need renovation.
The food was fabulous. I will say that the shrimp n grits was the best I have ever had. Also rated as a hit, was the chop, salmon and chicken. No complaints.
