Inspired by Midtown Atlanta’s multiple periods of prohibition during the middle of the 19th century, Rowdy Tiger Whiskey Bar & Kitchen channels the city’s unruly past, which included local speakeasies known as ‘blind tigers.’ In celebration of whiskey, legal or otherwise, Rowdy Tiger boasts one the largest selections of scotches, bourbons, and international whiskeys in the city, complemented by a quintessentially American menu, including Southern favorites like Brioche French Toast, Lowcountry Cioppino, Fried Green Tomato Caprese, and Bread Pudding.

Our Atlanta whiskey bar and kitchen commemorates the city’s storied past by raising a glass to an exciting future in our Midtown Atlanta neighborhood.

This is a hotel restaurant. We went for breakfast. They were out of french toast and fruit. Eggs were literally bad, spoiled and unedible. They did comp the other breakfast and drinks which was appreciated.

Our server was very sweet and attentive. We arrived at 6pm on a Saturday and there weren’t many people there until about 7 or so, so it was pretty quiet. My husband had the bourbon flight and and old fashioned. I had a couple of cocktails which were very good, had an ample amount of alcohol but not overly strong. Husband had the rib-eye and sweet potato fries, I had the shrimp and grits. Steak cooked to a nice medium as requested and had great flavor. The charcuterie board was beautifully done and tasty. I’d love to go back when the rooftop is open and they get more bourbons in. Our server advised there were supply issues due to Covid which is to be expected.

Our table of 5 was sat at a larger table that could have sat 8, so it was a little awkward. They also sat us next to a couple when the entire restaurant was empty which was a little bit awkward for a Friday. The food was good and drinks were great, but could have gone to a more exciting place for the price. The waitress was so nice.

If you are looking for a modern speakeasy specializing in whisky, Rowdy Tiger is a spot for you. They have over 100+ different whisky labels and a decent menu. The Atlanta Hot Chicken is my favorite so far.

I cannot recommend this place enough!! SO GOOD!!

My wife and I haven’t been out to a restaurant in nearly a year because of Covid, this was hands down the BEST experience for our first time out!

We walked into the Rowdy Tiger around 545pm and were the only ones there so we sat at the bar. The bartender was quick and kind and walked us through the menu in detail, making perfect recommendations when asked for it. The drinks were quick and delicious. We started with the Bourbon Glazed Wings that were without a doubt the best wings we’ve ever had. After a large party swarmed the bar, we cashed out but ended up coming back for dinner half an hour later. For dinner, we had the Bourbon Short Ribs and the Shrimp and Grits, both dishes were phenomenal! Highly recommend them both!

The restaurant is gorgeous, the two bartenders were so attentive and thoughtful, and the executive chef not only makes some of the best I’ve had in Atlanta but also took the time to come to our table and check on us. This was the best night out we could’ve imagined, thank you!!

My mom was in town so I was looking for somewhere to brunch. Brought my boyfriend also. Unfortunately there was no brunch menu, only breakfast. I ordered an omelet with breakfast potatoes as the side, plus a side of toast. Omelette was over cooked. Toast was great. Service was excellent and I may try again for lunch or dinner but probably would choose to go somewhere else for breakfast as it wasn’t very impressive. Super cool spot though! Lovely decor, quiet and excellent service.

Super disappointing. Our server was nice but super slow to get our cocktails there was no bartender and that drinks were super limited also. The avocado toast was subpar and that's being nice. The bread was just your basic back in the day thin wheat, soggy with smashed avocado similar to what you get in little containers at Trader Joe's. Very disappointing. I can't even remember what we ate but it was just not good.

I made a reservation to collect points etc, but there wasn't a host, or at least a designated server to greet guests, so that was a bit frustrating to enter with confusion. I really like the girl that was behind the bar. Unfortunately I didn't get her name but she was super nice and accommodating and always looked out for me. Our actual server was okay but kinda slow. I don't think that a slow dining room should mean slow service. I cannot recommend this place for a weekday lunch unless its for convenience.

Went for brunch on Sunday. Barely anyone there, thought it was closed at first because there was no hostess. Flagged her down in the back, looked disgusted that she had to get up from her table in the back to seat us. Food was very good but took surprisingly long to get coffee and drinks given that there was only 1 other table of guests present. Disappointing that there was no brunch drink menu as advertised online.

We truly enjoyed our first time dining at Rowdy Tiger. Heard about the restaurant on Trip Advisor. I ordered She Crab soup. It was a generous bowl. A little bit spicy for me but still enjoyed it. also ordered the Bourbon chicken wings which were very flavorful. My husband had the hamburger. Although I didn't try it it looked amazing. The fries were very tasty too.
Our waiter Tony was the best part of the evening. He was attentive, funny and professional. When we go back I will ask for Tony!!!!!!

Management is poor at this restaurant. We were a table of 15 and were given ONE server. The server did everything she could be our food was late and some people never received their dinner at all. It took about 45 minutes to sort out the check. It was a giant disaster. This restaurant may be ok for groups of 2 people but do not bring a large party here. I was also not able to contact the restaurant by phone to let them know of changes in my reservation which is another problem. Food was ok, but expensive.

Went here on a Thursday night. The restaurant wasn’t quite half full at its busiest point. The food was tasty, plate presentation was as expected for the price range, portions were very good. The service, although friendly, wasn’t as attentive as it should’ve been, especially given how quiet the night was.

Not all liquors listed on the menu were available. The first two I chose were out of stock. The bartender ended up coming to the table to make sure there wasn’t a strike three. I must add that the bartender graciously poured a full dram (2 oz.) for me when I ordered a taste (1 oz.) due to the stock issues. Having worked in a number of restaurants over the years, that was the right thing to do. It was very much appreciated.

Overall, I’d go back to give the Rowdy Tiger another shot. I really want to like this restaurant.
