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

The Vinings Inn has gotten a little rundown looking and the service, while friendly, was not very professional.

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. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Typically we come there on holidays and special occasions but would consider on "normal" days as well.

We celebrated Valentine’s Day at Old Vinings Inn, and we had a lovely and romantic experience. Our table was set beautifully, we could hear the strains of live jazz coming from upstairs, our wine was superb, the food was delicious, our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous, and everything about our evening was perfect. We will definitely be back!

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.

We were celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect - food, service, ambience, noise level. Unfortunately for the restaurant but great for us, we had the dining room almost to ourselves. (It was a Monday night and we were early.) The Inn comped us our choice of a dessert in honor of our anniversary! We will definitely go again.

Went for wife's birthday and we had not been there in many years. I must say it was a perfect evening. Our sever was spot on with her recommendations. Her service was excellent. Now to the food it was first rate. There was 6 of us and we were all most happy with our meals. Every dish was cooked perfect and the taste could not have been any better. And don't forget the deserts they were amazing. We had a wonderful evening and even though it's a long drive for us we will be going back.

The environment is a great date night location ... maybe not for a first date given it is very quaint and intimate. Good for couples who have been together and just want a place for good conversation and less people watching. Food was awesome. Started with the crab cake, yummy and not too bready. I had the short ribs and he had the red fish, with a side of Mac and cheese ..because... it’s date night :). Very well cooked and excellent flavor. Our server was friendly, attentive, but not annoying and did a great job making suggestions. Would definitely go again to try some other menu items and try out the rooftop bar.

We were seated in the Bear Room which had a fireplace and was enclosed off. Rick our server was phenomenal. We so enjoyed our food and our time together and are sure to return. The live music was the icing on the cake. So great!

Our waiter, Chris, was wonderful and fulfilled our every need. He was attentive and was knowledgeable about the menu. Unfortunately the entrée I had was not very tasty and may have been a result of the meal I ordered. It was flank steak on the Sunday Supper menu. My husband thought his steak was fine.

Also, there was no N/A available. I know space is limited but surely a few cans of it could be kept.

We enjoy the bar and music upstairs and will be back.

I had visited this restaurant several years ago when there were different owners. We ordered "Caesar Salad" and "Springer Mountain Buttermilk Fried Chicken" we had high expectations for this meal, which it did not measured up to our expectations. The food was only okay and the portion size was a little less than our expectations. Our server was great which made our overall expereince good. I believe my review maybe bias since I was expecting my meal to be similar to another popular restaurant in Smyrna/Vinings area that has the same item on their menu.
