We enjoyed our evening at Paschal's. The waitress was very good. The fried chicken and fried catfish were good. Two in our party ordered the peach cobbler and really enjoyed it.

The young lady at the front desk needs better training. INsyead of leading with "we are short staffed and don't want to seat you and make you wait for service" she tols us it would be a 20 minute wait. The restaurant opened at 12:00 and we arrived at 12:20. There were only 5 tables with customers. I told her I would wait and wanted a booth. "Booths are only available to people with reservations." (Huh?) So I stepped aside and made a reservation for 12:30 on my cell phone. I went back to the waitress stand and said I was here for my 12:30 reservation and was seated.

I ordered the catfish fillet. I ordered 2 pieces. I was served 1 piece of catfish that was split down the middle. That was 2 piece of catfish. My family has been patronizing Paschal's restaurant since I was a kid visiting Atlanta with my dad. The Paschal brohers were still living. They took orders, cooked and ran the heck oout of the restaurant. The quality of food has gone down since the pandemic. The cornbread is different and charging me for 2 pieces of catfish which was actually 1 whole piece split in half...I'm good Pascal's. James and Robert Paschal would not be pleased.

Upon arrival may have been the manager African American male with a yellow polo shirt asked if we had a reservation and we said yes and then he said “hold on I need you to wait while I send this text”. We were seated the waitress was attentive and other wait staff were kind and ensured we were comfortable. The staff appeared to support one another even though the restaurant appeared short staff. We attempted to place our order and was informed there was no catfish or baked chicken available. Lastly, we all ordered fried chicken our only option after the fish and baked chicken and it was crispy and moist but over seasoned.

Excellent food! Seemed very clean. Servers nice, but the overall service was very slow. Good value for the food. I had the salmon, shrimp, collard greens and yams. I give the food a 10/10! Great atmosphere!! I would recommend 100%!

We came there for a birthday celebration. The collard greens was salty, Mac n cheese was not done all the way, some chicken was salty and the wings did not have any seasoning. The salmon was over cooked. This was an disappointing experience. We had many that travel from 6 different states and was very dissatisfied.

We came from out of town to a birthday celebration. Every time I come to Atlanta I must come to you all to get some food to go. This was the first time I dine in. First, even though we had a reservation it seems as though we was not welcome or it was a problem. Once we was seated we only had one waitress to wait on a party of 20. Once the food came the collard greens was salty, chicken was salty, the wings had no season on it, the Mac n cheese was not baked all the way, and the salmon was over cooked.

I’m very disappointed for this experience especially when it was my idea to go there to celebrate my sister. This will be the last time I visit your restaurant and tell anyone about you. Please make sure you are fully staffed and the kitchen is ready for a rush.

Thank you

Paschal's is no longer doing brunch but it's still listed on all restaurant searches. So we were quite disappointed to learn that we were seated. The staff is very friendly and aims to please. The food was good. Everything I expected from past visits. Keep up the great customer service!

We had a 430 reservation we did not get seated until five we did not have our order taken until almost 6 o’clock I had three small children and one teenager they were very frustrated the food was horrible the table was dirty the floors were dirty very sticky it just was not the experience that we have had in the past I don’t know if it was because of the time of the day that we came because normally we come early like 1130 1230 but overall the service was horrible I was very surprised. I won’t be returning and I will never recommend this restaurant to any family or friends. The quality of service the cleanliness of the restaurant and the food has gone down to a very low level.

Nothing like my visit from two years ago. Restaurant has gone down. Floor was so sticky felt like it had not been mopped in a year. Bathroom was so nasty seemed like it had not been cleaned in a week. Hostess and servers need training on customer service. Hostess refused to seat me till my husband had parked the car in their limited parking. Server never returned to refill drinks. I had to ask for check. Just an awful dining experience. And food was just ok.

This is a historic great Black restaurant. I have eaten there many times and even before they moved to this location. You will probably need a doggie bag to take food home because the portions are large. The service is good. But do not go if you are in a rush because their chicken and fish are prepared to order so you may wait 15-20 minutes for your order to come out. Very friendly staff. I highly recommend it.

Let me say first, the food was really good. I took my Dad there for Father’s Day. I asked for a booth, so that my 78yr old Dad would be more comfortable…however…the hostess said the booths were for parties of 3 or more only. It wasn’t crowded…and one of the booths I was eyeing was empty the entire time we were there. Now what really made the experience lees than “5 stars” was how dirty the floors were underneath the tables. They were eventually swept about 40 minutes after I noticed it. I just didn’t understand why the floor wasn’t swept because there wasn’t anyone seated at those tables.

Our Waitress was very nice, but our food was mostly cold, actually the only thing we got that was hot was the Baked Mac & Cheese, and the chicken wings were very small, Pascal seems to be going down, which is a grave disappointment, I know the history on Pascal's, but was saddened by the food quality.

Not the same restaurant it used to be. Floors are super sticky, dining room was drab and dad, food took forever after ordering. It was just a let down experience for one of Atlanta’s fed restaurants.

Unfortunately had not heard of Paschals eventhough I'm an Atlanta native; my husband had but apparently kept this soul food gem to himself. I ordered only sides for dinner from Uber Eats one evening and fell in love. I immediately made reservations for 3 weeks later and was not disappointed. It was just as delicious. Their Peach Cobbler tastes like my own. I didn't realize my recipe was public. Lol! Fiedi was our server and was sweet too. I'm adding this to one of my favorites list.
