Our experience at Old Vinings Inn could not have been any better. The safety precautions taken made us feel very comfortable and the service from our server Russell was outstanding. Our food was awesome and in addition, the gluten-free options were very clearly marked and tasted amazing. We will absolutely be dining here again soon!

Great service with Russell! I loved the food but unfortunately they’ve changed my item of choice-crab cakes and corn chowder....no more corn chowder which gave the dish an off balance of satisfaction. Everything was still delicious

we had a choice of restaurants in Vinings to go to that would have outdoor seating. Glad we came here and not to one of the others! great porch (heated), with spacing between tables so we had lots of room. Service was very good and the food was quite tasty, all the way from appetizer to dessert. Four of us enjoyed a great Friday evening. We'd sooner come back than go to one of the other nearby restaurants.

The appetizer and sides were awesome; charcuterie tray, brussel sprouts, carrot mash, roasted potatoes, asparagus, and the bread and butter! The pecan crusted trout and grilled salmon were good. Nice portions. The service was what seems to be rare now days; great! The bartender was a real bartender.

Had dinner at Old Vinings Inn for my daughter and wife's birthdays. We were able to sit outside on the porch adequately distanced and quite enjoyed the environment. The charcuterie tray was excellent as was the candied bacon appetizer. The dinners were all excellent as well. This is not our first time going here and it is a favorite.

Food was pretty good, but the service was pretty terrible. I’ve been a server for 8 years so I understand to an extent when a restaurant is understaffed, but they weren’t that busy so I’m not sure why service was so poor. My husband and I went out to celebrate a new job, but they aren’t doing wine by the glass right now so I got a mini bottle of cava to toast to my new job, and that cheap wine was pretty terrible, but I’m not going to buy a whole bottle just for myself. The host waited on us more than our server. I also would have cut the airline chicken breast, it was a little strange to cut, I don’t know. Not super impressed, probably won’t go back. I like canoe for a “fancy” date better.

Sunday brunch was delicious on the porch outside. Temperature checks upon entry, online menu and servers aware of appropriate safety measures were all reassuring. The fried green tomatoes and salad were wonderful. We will be back!

They need dedicated people to bus tables. Many people waited a half hour for open tables because no one cleared tables. Food was great, Russell was great as our server. Will be back but hope they can get a dedicated kid to bus/set up tables to increase productivity.
