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.

Great place to eat the rooftop bar was a bit over crowded and there was two bartenders yet it seemed a bit too long of a wait for drinks. However the downstairs restaurant was great food was amazing the drinks were great very beautiful place for a date night.

My server, Tony, was excellent! The food was delicious. The scallops were the best I’ve ever had. The old fashioned is definitely the right beverage choice.

Loved the bottomless mimosas and the different flavors offered. I had the chicken and avocado omelet. It was a little small for my taste, but the grits definitely made up for it. Our server, Alicia, was very outgoing and friendly. All the staff were helpful and accommodating of our party's requests (it was a birthday brunch). It should also be noted that the upstairs area, although beautiful, doesn't open until after 5pm on any day so there's no brunch out there.

We made 10:30 reservations on a Sunday. Brunch starts at 11. We were offered breakfast menus or the option to wait until 11 to order brunch. We opted to wait for brunch. They took our order at 10:45ish....but we didn't get our food for nearly an hour, at which point we were hungry and anxious to be on time for the show at the Fox.
Ultimately the food was delicious, our servers were wonderful and we had a great time - both at breakfast and at the show at the Fox, which we made in plenty of time.

After having reservations, we were told to still wait 10 min. Not a problem, however the restaurant was not even crowded. When we were seated by the hostess, she told us someone would be with us shortly. Another 10 mins went by and we seen the hostess again , we asked her to bring us some water. She did, then said our waitress would be with us shortly. After another 5 minutes with no acknowledgement we decided to walk out and leave. The atmosphere was nice, however we will not be returning.

We were looking for a place to eat after the Alabama - Miami game and Rowdy Tiger was near our hotel and they could seat 8 of us. The food was good. I had the crispy trout and it was great. The service was good and the place was nice. We’d go again when in Mid Town Atlanta.

Pre-Hamilton dinner and drinks. First time out in the ATL since COVID and thanks to Tony our server and of course the caste of Hamilton … it is one to remember.

Tony was the perfect ambassador for @Rowdy Tiger and the city. His recommendations were spot on for both food and drinks followed by flawless execution and delivery.

The deviled eggs, chicken and waffles, pork chop, ribeye and sides were cooked to perfection. Our only regret was not having room for the pecan pie for dessert.

THANK YOU.

PS - easy walking distance to the Fox.

Wonderful choice for our monthly Culinary Club. Our outing to try different restaurants in ATLANTA since 2000. After our 14 mon Covid hiatus, we are back! We have visited this space before under prior name, but THE ROWDY TIGER is the best. Each meal was delicious and prepared well. Service was exemplary. The best part was the bread pudding with scotch caramel sauce! To die for. Thank you to the chef Andy for coming out to meet us!

They don't tell you that besides street parking, it is convenient to park in the Renaissance paid public parking deck right next door. Also half of your party has to be there before the seat you...even if you want to start ordering.

I came here on a date for the first time but I wasn’t impressed with this visit. I made the reservation to sit on the rooftop which currently isn’t available (which I was called before time to be told it wasn’t available I definitely appreciated that). I still decided to go through with the reservation just because its still a place Ive been wanting to try. After we were seated our server kept forgetting about us and often times we waited long periods before being able to put in orders for appetizers, entrees, or even drinks. It was very loud inside I’m guessing because there were 2 or 3 large groups there. A big issue is that I counted 2-3 guests that were seated after us and received serviced before us and it was mildly frustrating. There was even a party of 6 that came in after us that got all their orders and drinks taken, served, and devoured before we even got our entrees.

The food was pretty good though, and the drinks were good too. I’d still come back another time to try The Rowdy Tiger out again since I’m sure this isn’t typically how they operate. Everyone else there seemed to be having a great time and I just wish I had the same feeling.
