The meal, wine and service were all outstanding. The local art on the walls added nice ambience.
The building could use a little TLC (a spring closer on the front door and a coat of paint in the bathrooms for example).

Always a sure bet to please. My favorite restaurant in the area for business meeting, lunch or dinner. Fried chicken and crab cakes were excellent. Personal attention but not overkill.

I had not been to this restaurant for almost a year. There was a great difference in the quality of the food, service, prices and overall experience. I was very disappointed overall. Could be a great spot in the Vinings. Management and staff need to change.

The food was great. The service was a little on the slow side but it was easy to catch the eye of a Server whenever we needed something and then our wants/needs were quickly taken care of. Since we were enjoying a leisurely dinner with friends it was great.

We were there for Easter dinner to enjoy the buffet. Everything was wonderful, however was a little disappointed by the time of our reservation, food was running out and they were not making more. For the price, would expect to have everything listed on the menu available during the reservation times offered. That is good planning. Otherwise, it was a great experience and our server was fantastic.

Experienced their famous Easter buffet - overall a very good meal. We were seated fairly quickly given the large crowd - had a great table near the buffet. Nice ambiance and noise level was low enough to have a conversation. Fried chicken was a bit too greasy (and that’s my only reason for the 4 stars), but that may have been due to the quick turn time time due to constant replenishment. Their shrimp & grits was truly outstanding and I’d return just for that. The appetizer table featured pimento cheese dip, spinach artichoke dip, prosciutto and shrimp - all of which were delicious - and you could have made your meal of just that table. Highly recommend and I’ll definitely be back!

First time to Old Vinings Inn, we came for brunch. This restaurant has character and the staff was very friendly. Melanie was our server and she was fantastic, attentive, friendly. Food was excellent, we started with bread basket followed by eggs Benedict . We will definitely be back for lunch/dinner when we are in the area again.

On my arrival I did not feel very welcomed by the male host of the evening. He was not very inviting and led us to a table away from the other guests that was a table by an entrance into the main area. We were placed where the wait staff had to pass us each time they came into the main room and pass through to the outside eating patio area. The entire time, we felt as if we were placed away from the main area of the restaurant. The food was filling and tasty.
Despite all of that he wait staff was very pleasant to us.

Too bad because I would have loved to go back the next time I am in Atlanta, but I paid too much for dinner to feel excluded.

We had a wonderful meal at OVI. It had been some time since we had been and we loved it. The atmosphere is lovely, the food was delicious, and the service was warm, friendly, and excellent. The short ribs were excellent and matched well with creamy mashed potatoes and root vegetables. The fish was excellent. The deserts were outstanding....brownie with bacon was not to be missed and the key lime pie was delicious. We dined at a high end restaurant a few weeks ago and had their short ribs....and while they were wonderful I felt the OVI short rib was even better. I highly recommend this little gem.

We went as a Valentine's date. We were seated in what appeared to be the outside deck. There was vinyl panels hanging down to shield you from the weather. Made for horrible viewing. Next reservation I will request not to sit there unless it's in the Spring or Fall. I had the blackened redfish and my wife had the salmon. Both meals were good not great. Since it is a small menu, my wife struggled for something to suit her taste. Our waiter was nice a little over talkative and hard to understand as he talked so fast and had a Wisconsin accent. Talkative is fine, but when you can't understand him you don't want to keep saying.... huh?. Other staff was very friendly as well. We would go back again.

As always we left full and happy. I cannot think of our waiters name (maybe Steve or John) and his teammate Julie our waitress are always a delight to have looking after us while dinning at old vinnings inn. They don't get any better than those 2! Very professional but at the same time really caring and very personable. It is always a treat when we get seated and find out they will be taking care of us. We have never had anything to eat there that wasn't outstanding! So if you get a chance to eat at old vinnings inn "I say run don't walk"! Enjoy. Mother/daughter known there as Night owls

We had a good time coming back to Old Vinings Inn after an extended absence. We were reminded of the good food and relaxing ambiance of the restaurant.

I was very surprised with Linen a Candles on the table, the waiters were dressed in jeans and flannel shirts. That seemed to be worn, takes away the ambience of dining!
Was a special occasion, which I told several people. Dessert came and was just put on the table with no candle or greeting.
